We’ve suspected for some time that Fibromyalgia and ME/CFS patients suffer disproportionately from seasonal affective disorder (SAD). Our recent Question of the Week only proved the point, with 81% of all respondents admitting to bouts with the winter blues.
Many of us have turned to light boxes for relief over the years, and although relief can be found there, the truth is that after the first month or so compliance wanes. Patients usually find it difficult to sit in front of a box for 30 minutes every morning, not to mention that light boxes are expensive and take up much-needed space.
‘Tis the Season
So here we are, in the season of less natural light. Shorter days, overcast skies and inclement weather all work together to affect mood and behavior (after all, you will be indoors more than out when it’s cold and rainy). And while the FDA has approved the use of light for SAD, you needn’t incur the expense and trouble of a light box. There’s an easy, portable answer that not only delivers the light you need, but delivers it in the most efficient manner possible.
Your Personal Rays
FeelBrightLight™, designed by an MD involved in research, delivers phototherapy (8,000 to 12,000 lux) directly to the retina – where it does the most good. Lightweight and completely portable, it’s a welcomed alternative to light boxes. Just put it on and go about your morning, making coffee, brushing your teeth, making your bed. The unit shuts off automatically after 30 minutes, and you’ve gotten your daily dose of light therapy.
It’s simply too easy for SAD to take hold, and once it does, FM/ME/CFS patients can experience a chain reaction of ill effects. We have to be proactive about our care, and effective light therapy is an important addition to our arsenal of defense tools. With FeelBrightLight™ you needn’t succumb to SAD.
Science has proven that blue, indigo, violet and green are the most energetic wavelengths, and this product provides concentrated blue-green light for maximum benefit. Science has also found that effective phototherapy is about light absorbed by your eyes, not vitamin D absorbed by your skin. It’s the lumens in your pupils delivering light to your brain and the subsequent brain chemistry reactions that help combat SAD.
I use the FeelBrightLight™ religiously. I like that it’s portable (especially with the travel I do) and that I can use it with any hat. I invite you to test it for one month (it usually takes two to three weeks of consistent use to begin noticing a difference). If after that time you’re not convinced that this product delivers on its promise, we’ll refund your purchase price. So really, all you’ve got to lose is those winter blues!
Here’s to happy holidays,
