Did you know light therapy is now used for for winter depression, hay fever, allergies, rheumatism and other problems? In recent years, light therapy has become an increasingly popular treatment for a wide range of physical and psychological problems such as muscle problems, skin problems, allergies, hay fever and depression. That’s not surprising, since light therapy has many benefits: no side effects, it’s easy and minimally invasive, and it can be done at home. There also are many different light therapy lamps on the market to choose from. Light therapy lamps can be divided into three groups:
Daylight has an impact on mood and psychological well-being. The risk of developing problems associated with lack of sunlight exposure is therefore a real problem. Lack of sunlight can cause problems such as burn-out, depression, winter blues, fatigue and lack of energy. Daylight lamps provide necessary light supplement for successfully treating or preventing these problems, and have a stimulating effect on the body and mind. Daylight therapy is also used to treat disturbed circadian rhythms as the use of daylight lamps increases the production of a ‘sleep hormone’ called melatonin.
Phototherapy for hay fever and allergies
Phototherapy is a form of light therapy that is used to treat hay fever and other allergic rhinitis symptoms such as runny nose, itching and sneezing. The anti-allergy devices emit infrared light with a specific wavelength into the nasal cavity, which makes the nasal mucous membranes less sensitive to triggers such as pollen of flowering plants and trees or other allergens. The lamps are compact and easy to use. In contrast to light therapy lamps, you don’t have to sit in front of the device. The light-emitting diodes are inserted directly into the nostrils. Undergoing four minutes of phototherapy, three times a day, is enough to get good results. Caremaxx Bionase and Medisana Medinose are clinically proven methods for relieving allergic rhinitis conditions such as hay fever.
Infrared warmth penetrates through the skin to the subcutaneous tissues, providing effective pain relief for muscles and joints. Because the skin is heated, the blood vessels widen. This stimulates blood circulation and metabolism, which in turn helps to remove waste materials from the body more efficiently. Infrared light therapy is used to treat a wide range of problems, including rheumatic conditions, muscle injuries, the common cold and lumbago. The lamps that are on the market today are adjustable in height and have been optimised for treatment of all parts of the body.
