Most of us know about SAD lights – they sit in the corner of our offices delivering light into our lives and making us happier.
Surprisingly though, our eyes are not the most effective route to deliver light to the brain: the ear canal, where the skull at its thinnest, is the most effective route to direct light to where it is needed.
Amazingly, in a recent clinical trial, 25 severely depressed patients were treated with a daily dose of 8-12 minutes of light with the VALKEE bright light headset. Over a period of four weeks, nine patients out of ten experienced total relief of symptoms.
Now, that’s a bright idea.
