Light therapy as a medical tool for treating sleep disorders, jetlag, SAD and more
Light therapy has become increasingly popular in the last few years as a treatment for a wide range of medical problems related to daylight exposure. Research has made it more and more evident that daylight has a large impact on our health. Lack of daylight can lead to sleep disorders, jetlag, lack of energy and depression. Light therapy can provide an effective solution to these problems.
