New research shows that Blue Light Therapy can improve the overall quality of life for patients with depression.
The main premise behind this form of therapy is that blue-light radiation from artificial light can calm and relax the mind and body. It reduces stress and anxiety and induces sleep.
There are many different types of depression and other mental illnesses, but they all have one major concern in common: the inability to cope with stress, frustration, and pain. Blue light therapy can help patients cope with daily stress, eliminate negative thoughts that can lead to depression, and help the body to heal itself from chronic stress. Endorphins are a natural painkiller and they may actually relieve pain in the body.
Light therapy can help to improve sleep. Blue light is able to penetrate deep into the skin and is easier to treat than green light. Unlike green light, which absorbs into the skin, blue light penetrates the skin without doing any damage. This makes it very easy to remove an eye patch or to apply the blue light directly to the eyes.
Blue light therapy can help improve blood circulation and oxygenation, which increases oxygen delivery and helps the body maintain normal function. In fact, researchers have found that blue light exposure can lower blood pressure, stimulate blood flow, and reduce stress hormone production.
Researchers have found that the brain becomes highly active when a person is sleeping and that can occur at night. But with the help of blue light, the brain gets enough energy to survive, thus making it easier to wake up feeling refreshed and ready to take on the day.
Blue light therapy is so beneficial to the skin that scientists believe that they can use it to treat and prevent skin cancer. The benefits of this therapy are that it promotes faster healing and protects the body from further damage. Reducing inflammation and improving blood flow is just one of the many positive effects that it has on the skin.
People who suffer from sleep apnea have difficulties breathing during sleep, which can make them uncomfortable and usually results in them being unable to sleep. With the help of this therapy, the patient can sleep much better and enjoy a much better night’s sleep.
