Light Therapy, also known as Phototherapy, is a growing field of research and product development which uses light to treat the symptoms of many diverse, but common, medical problems. Light therapy uses different colors of light to treat different ailments. Full spectrum light or "white" sunlight is used to treat the depression and sleep disorders that result from Seasonal Affective Disorder (aka winter blues or SAD). Full Spectrum sunrise simulation is being used to treat sleep disorders - and to provide people a sound night's sleep - by regulating the body's circadian rhythms.
Narrow spectrum, blue light therapy, is being used to treat insomnia. Light therapy for acne vulgaris (acne) makes use of the anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory qualities of both blue and red light. Indeed, these are very exciting times for those interested in light therapy - the realization that people can treat their problems in an effective manner, free of drugs and with no side effects.
Verilux invented full spectrum, "daylight" lighting more than 50 years ago. Full spectrum light has since become the standard for people who demand the best light for reading, artwork, crafting and tasks. Verilux full spectrum light provides the brightness, contrast and clarity to read longer and perform task work without eyestrain or headaches. Our light also helps mitigate sight problems like cataracts and macular degeneration. Please see our extensive line of floor lamps and desk lamps.
Verilux light therapy lamps are the number one light to treat Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD) - without drugs, without side effects. We've also introduced new light therapy products to treat acne and sleep disorders... Did you know that Verilux was a pioneer and innovator in early Compact Fluorescent (CFL) technology?
