Are the sunlight lamps a proven technology for making winter less of a downer?

    A large part of the population gets Seasonal Affective Disorder.  What this means, is that with the reduced sunlight, we start to exhibit slightly depressed affects.  This is triggered by the lack of the chemical that allows us to feel as we do in the summer.  Sunlamps release a chemical that mirrors the reaction we normally receive from sun rays.  This does seem to be effective.

    Feeling down in the winter time could be due to a lack of sunlight. Too much darkness can result in a drop in serotonin levels which will leave you feeling depressed. According to the MAYO clinic website, phototherapy (therapy involving exposure to light) is recommended for those diagnosed with Seasonal Affective Disorder, a form of depression that manifests seasonally. Psychotherapy and medication may also help.
