Aurora 10,000 Lux Full-Spectrum Light Box

Light, like water and air, is essential to our well-being. Studies have shown that during fall and winter about 20% of the population is affected by fatigue, irritability, anxiety, weight gain, social withdrawal, and a lack of alertness. Most affected are those living in northern latitudes and in frequently overcast areas, especially during the shortened fall and winter days. About 75% of those affected are women.

Our body has a very distinct 24 hour cycle. This cycle is controlled by bright light (the sun). Shift workers, travelers crossing several time zones, people with certain sleep disorders, often feel "out of sorts" because their daily cycle is "out of sync" with the sun.

The Closest Simulation To Natural Sunlight

The Aurora Full Spectrum Light System has been engineered for those who have shown to be adversely affected by the lack of natural sunlight, due to inadequate exposure of their living and work space during the dark and depressing Fall and Winter months.

The lightbox is placed in front of the user at the recommended distance for the desired intensity. One should be directly in front of the unit as the light shines into the users eyes. The eyes need to be open and sunglasses should not be worn. Some may be instructed to look at the lightbox briefly at regular intervals. For many this does not seem to be necessary.

Although SAD is often correctly self-diagnosed, other illness factors may be at play. It is wise to consult with a qualified medical practitioner in both the diagnosis and treatment of SAD. Some insurance companies may reimburse the cost of a lightbox, if prescribed.
