Beat Depression Naturally

Low Light Equals Big Depression

Depression is a serious medical condition, that believe it or not, most people will just ignore. I’d like to believe that
the reason for ignoring this condition is to avoid those dangerous antidepressants. It will not just go away and you do not
have to take those antidepressants either.

Before the times of new modern medicine it did take a long time to heal wounds and illnesses.  It should make someone think
about how those problems were even healed at all.  The answer is easy.  The answer is light. Sunlight was and still is a
great cure for illnesses and wounds and is rarely used today.  Those that practice alternative medicine are looking to
light therapy as a new and natural cure for many different types of problems with the physical and emotional body.

The average person is a whole lot busier than people back before modern medicine.  It would not make sense for someone to
spend hours in the sun and have this just heal something that can be cured in no time when using a pill.  It is possible to
be cured by light like sunlight.  Spending an hour or so in the sun can cure a headache.  Having longer exposure can help
to protect a wound from becoming infected.

With this information, current alternative medicine professionals are using the healing power of light in order to help
their patients with the physical and emotional problems that they have.  There are a few different techniques that are used
and depending on how severe the problem is.  Some of the therapists use fluorescent bulbs next to their patients and have
them sit by them for a few hours.  Doing this procedure will help and the patient will be able to read so that they do not
focus their attention on the lights.  Another good use is to cure the aches and pains that people have in the body with
intense light with a smaller beam and have it shine on the part of the body that is in pain.

Using light therapy is known to help cure several disorders but the most common is a winter type depression known as Seasonal
Affective Disorder or S.A.D.  This is a mental and physical condition of depression that occurs during the winter months.  It
is a theory that this depression will come about because of the lack of sunlight in many places during the winter months.
Exposure to light will make up for this problem and it will hopefully get rid of the winter depression.

Symptoms can be severe and they will usually clear up as the seasons change. If you live in a part of the world where the
winter days are shorter or where there are big changes in the amount of daylight, you can have a greater chance of this
affecting you. However, there is also Reverse Seasonal Affective Disorder (RSAD), this is just the opposite as it occurs with
the start of summer. This is not as common, because it is the lack of sunlight that is mostly responsible for the onset of
SAD. This means that RSAD is sort of a contradiction of theories.

There are many routes that one can take when facing some form of Depression or another. You should always talk to someone you
trust first and then you both can decide which is the best plan of action for you to take.
