  • What is Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD)?

    SAD is a medically recognised form of depression which affects 8% of people in the UK. A further 21% of people in the UK experience a milder form of SAD often referred to as ‘Winter Blues’.

    The ‘Winter Blues’ can lead to individuals feeling tired, lethargic and ‘fed-up’. By contrast, SAD is a seriously debilitating condition, which can leave sufferers medically depressed. SAD can lead to problems in relationships, unemployment and even suicide.

    Lack of light causes SAD. Symptoms are common during the darker months from August through to April, but can equally be triggered during exceptionally dull summers or dark home/work environments. SAD can occur anywhere, but is more prevalent in those living further away from the equator.

    Symptoms and causes of SAD

    The symptoms of SAD are varied in type and severity, often worsening as the days get darker. Initial symptoms can help the individual identify the condition early and prevent serious depression setting in. These symptoms include lethargy, over eating, sleep problems, loss of libido, social problems and anxiety, reduced cognitive function and depression.

    The symptoms of SAD can be traced back to the hypothalamus, a small part of the brain which controls mood, appetite, sleep patterns, body temperature and sex drive, as well as regulating hormones. This part of the brain responds to impulses caused by light entering the eye. The functions of the hypothalamus decrease when there is insufficient light entering the eye, causing chemical imbalance.

  • The place of Light Therapy in SAD

    As SAD is caused by a lack of light, the logical treatment has always been to supplement this intake. Bright light therapy has been proven to be effective in up to 85% of people diagnosed with SAD. Treatment commonly takes the form of a light box.

    How much light required will vary with each individual and with the severity of their condition. A daily dose of 2,500 to 10,000 lux is generally recommended for the treatment, but it is often necessary to try different routines of use and monitor the results.

    It typically takes three or four days before the benefits of light therapy are seen and these benefits can be lost in a similar period if the treatment is not maintained. Sufferers should avoid using a light box too late in the day, as this can interfere with the production of Melatonin and disturb sleep routines.
