Bright Light Treatment for SAD Winter Blues


Bright light treatment (BLT) is usually thought of as only being helpful for SAD syndrome winter blues, however this is mistaken for it is useful for any type of depression. There is solid scientific evidence that the BLT has a mild but possibly more reliable antidepressant effect than standard antidepressants. Two things stand out with bright light therapy that make it a genuinely useful tool for treating depression:
  • Firstly BLT is far quick acting than regular antidepressants drugs producing antidepressant effects within days as opposed to weeks.
  • Secondly BLT is certainly side-effect free.

BLT stimulates the cells in the eye that stimulate serotonin production in the brain, as I've said elsewhere antidepressants drugs are not the only way to boost serotonin and it is a travesty that this particular method is so underutilised. If you suffer from depressive illness do not hesitate to invest in this safe effective antidepressant
 
This page is [UNDER CONSTRUCTION] I'll have a lot more to say about using BLT in combination with other approaches to create powerful and effective antidepressant treatments. For now however please see the Free E-book Bright in Your Life by Kripke
 
WARNING: Anything that has an antidepressant effect may induce mania in a person with bipolar syndrome, BLT is no exemption and there is a small but real risk of inducing a harmful manic episode. A high dose of BLT will reliably induce a hyper-mania condition in me, and when I want to test the efficacy of a new potential ant-mania remedy/approach I use an excessive dose of BLT on myself and then experiment with the new antidote, if it doesn’t work a can always shut the mania down with tried and tested techniques.  
 
If you have bipolar syndrome BLT can be used as an effective antidepressant but ONLY AFTER YOU HAVE ESTABLISHED WELL HONED TECHNIQUES TO SHUT DOWN MANIC PHASES.

What I Treat

I treat and coach people with mental health problems at my London clinic and via Skype how to use natural remedies, diet, brain training meditations, sleep and specific physical exercises to treat the health of the brain for mental health problems including:
  • bipolar syndrome,
  • depression,
  • anxiety,
  • addiction, panic disorder OCD and PTSD
I teach meditation brain training classes both  one-to-one and in small groups to rewire the brain and treat mental health problems.  I also see clints for cognitive hypnotherapy and NLP amygdala reprogramming or exposure therapy to treat anxiety spectrum disorders.
I regret that at this time do not treat psychotic conditions including schizophrenia at this time.
