'Winter Blues' Treated by  Breakthrough Lighting Technology

Almost 10 to 12 million suffer from winter depression, of which 8 to 10 million are females from 17 to 35 years of age.

Current research indicates that the absence of sunlight triggers a biochemical reaction that may cause symptoms such as loss of energy, fatigue, lethargy, decreased activity, sadness, excessive eating, carbohydrate cravings and sleepiness. Individuals affected by "winter depression" who go untreated can lose their jobs, destroy relationships, and isolate themselves from their communities, and their physical and mental health will continue to suffer. This condition may be far more reaching than just the some 12 million people affected by S.A.D. There are a growing number of people who are finding themselves spending substantial periods of time indoors and not gaining the health benefits of natural lighting. Armed with computers, MP3 players and electronic games, whether you are in Phoenix, AZ or New York, many people find that they too are deprived of correct lighting and are experiencing many of the same conditions associated with S.A.D.

Blue-Lux(TM) Light technology reduces the required time commitment by 50 percent and more, with positive effects that can be realized within days, versus weeks. This technology is presently available to the public and is used in American Environmental Products' Sun-A-Lux(R) Light Therapy Boxes and Glad-Light(TM) Desk Lamps.

Blue-Lux(TM) Difference
-- Fast 15 minutes-a-day treatment time
-- Quicker response - days instead of weeks
-- Increased quality of response
-- Greater freedom with lighter, more portable units
-- Close-range or whole-room usage

1) Blue-Lux(TM) technology combines a specific wavelength in the blue spectrum with a high intensity offset scotopic light to produce a faster and stronger response than all other 10,000 lux and Full Spectrum Light Boxes.

2) Blue-Lux(TM) technology now produces effects in as little as 15 minutes versus the past therapies taking a time-consuming 30 minutes to 2 hours of light therapy.
