Strong light therapy box PhysioLight LD 220 can be used successfully against winter depression

Kleve (23th of October 2015)

Many people are suffering under the significantly shorter days. If the clocks are now switched to winter time, the dark season begins. Due to the lack of light, many of us feel tired and without energy, are sad, tired and unconcentrated. In addition many people eat a lot of carbohydrates associated with weight gain during the winter months. Approx. 10% of the European population have so strong complaints that the diagnosis winter depression is made.
The powerful, bright light therapy devices of DAVITA® have up to 10.000 Lux in a comfortable distance to the product. They can increase the happiness hormone serotonin in a natural way. So the good mood and performance can be reached within a short time.

Lack of light as a cause for the winter depression

With the beginning of winter time it is dark one hour earlier at once. Then we can see that the winter is near. A lot of people have problems with dark and short days. Due to the lack of light the body of the human being goes in an energy saving program. Between october and march, about 10% of the population in Europe are suffering from seasonal affective disorder (SAD). Sufferers are often melancholic, unconcentrated and eat a lot of sweets. They sleep more, but are still tired. Additionally many people like to be at home. They often neglect duties and responsibilities. The bright daylight in the summer leads to an increase of the happiness hormone serotonin. Therefore we are more active, more powerful, have more energy and feel better.

With light therapy against the winter depression

With the light the interaction between the body's hormones melatonin and serotonin can be controlled. If we get very little natural light during the autumn and winter months, the melatonin level remains also very high during the day. Therefore the activity and energy are low, and the mood is suppressed. Since many years the light therapy can be used very successfully against winter depression. The very bright light is very similar to the sunlight, but without UV- and infrared light. The bright light must fall into the open eyes and can lead to an increase of the hormone serotonin. Within a short time wellbeing, efficiency and good mood can be reached in a natural way again.
Particularly effective is an extra dose of light in the morning from 7:00 clock to 10:00 clock. The light is a natural timer which controlls the internal clock. It is a signal that the night is over. Thus, an active day can start.

Powerful, high-quality DAVITA® Light Therapy devices for the extra dose of light during the dark winter months

For a medically effective light therapy high quality and powerful light therapy devices should be used. The light therapy devices of DAVITA® with a modern design have a high illuminance in a comfortable distance to the unit. This makes it possible that various activities can be carried out during the application, such as reading, eating breakfast, typing, ironing etc ..
The light therapy device PhysioLight LD 220 reaches a high illumination of 10,000 lux at a distance of 50 cm to the device. Therefore the application time is only 30 minutes per day. With this high illumination you can get the extra dose of light for an active day in a good mood. With the LD 110 you need one hour to reach the same dose of light. With the LD 72 two hours are necessary. The illuminance of the light therapy devices are as follows: LD 110 5,000 lux at a distance of 45 cm, LD 72 2,500 lux at a distance of 55 cm.
The DAVITA® light therapy devices are approved medical devices. They are maintenance free and easy and safe to use. The flicker-free light is harmless for skin and eyes, because the damaging UV components are filtered out in the light. By using energy-saving compact fluorescent lamps, the energy consumption is very low.
