Don’t Be SAD-Finnleo Infrared Sauna Therapy Lights Fight Depression & Lethargy
Finnleo Infrared Sauna can help fight Seasonal Affective Disorder.
All of us could use something to brighten our days as the long nights of the Pacific Northwest approach. For some of us, the winter will bring a serious condition, Seasonal Affective Disorder SAD), with symptoms including depression, lethargy, irritability, overeating, and aversion to social situations. SAD affects some 6 percent of Americans, but the condition is more common in higher latitudes, so at least 15 percent of us in Seattle suffer from it.
No one knows exactly what causes SAD, which affects mostly people between 18 and 30, and three times as many women as men. Possible causes are:
Interruption of circadian rhythms.
Deficiency of Vitamin D.
Genetic factors (Icelanders have far less SAD than others at similar latitudes).
Light therapy, the primary treatment involving 15 to 20 minutes’ exposure to extra-intense light, improves the condition for about 80 percent of people, often in as little as three days.
That’s where Finnleo Infrared Saunas come in. You can enjoy your sauna in red, blue or green light that will help combat SAD. Many of our Finnleo customers tell us the sauna rekindles their zest for life even in the dark days. For best results, you can time the session to match your own circadian rhythm – I calculated mine on the nonprofit Center for Environmental Therapeutics website and found out I’m a “definite evening” person.
If you feel a case of the “winter blues,” you might have SAD. A Finnleo Infrared Sauna or a move to Iceland can make you happy! A Finnleo Sauna is by far the better option. See your Finnleo Infrared Sauna options now in all 5 Olympic Hot Tub stores and make this and all winters to come SAD free.
