Full Spectrum Light Box
Put an end to
winter blues, seasonal affective disorder (SAD), depression, moodiness,
and much more with the safe, energizing bright light of the WinterBright.
Used in the
morning for one half to one hour while reading the paper, eating
breakfast or studying you will start your day at a higher energy
level, and in a much better mood!
light has a well-documented effect on the human mind and body. Light
controls our biological rhythms and is known to regulate the delicate
balance of melatonin and seratonin in our brain chemistry. Winter-time
commonly finds us feeling more lethargic, eating more, sleeping
more, and craving the return of sunny days.
Affective Disorder (SAD)
One of the more
commonly known conditions resulting from lack of natural sunlight
is Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD). SAD is triggered by the shortening
of the photo period as winter approaches. The shortened photo period
allows melatonin, the hormone responsible for signaling that it’s
time to sleep, to build up to higher-than-normal levels in the blood,
which in turn produces the symptoms of SAD.
Much of the
physiology behind SAD also plays a role in our daily sleep/wake
cycle. When this cycle is disrupted, we get the symptoms of jet
lag: clinical sleep disorders, severe fatigue, major digestive problems,
and the inability to react or concentrate.
is our sleep/wake cycle disrupted?
Our bodies expect
to receive a daily stimulus of light every morning from sunlight
at sunrise. That the sunrise is the key stimulus of light makes
sense when we realize that the rising and setting of the sun has
for eons been the major daily environmental stimuli in the evolution
of life. If we do not receive these signals, or we receive them
at the wrong time, several physiological cycles desynchronize or
are phase-shifted, causing jet lag symptoms. So while we do have
internal clocks (pacemakers), they need to be reset daily.
the carefully balanced brightness of our lightboxes can reset a
shift workers' biological clock (circadian rhythm) to help you sleep
better, feel energized, and put a smile back on your face! (Click

All Bright Light Therapy Light Boxes Are Created Equal
Unlike our competitors,
our bioLIGHTSYSTEMS are radiation-shielded for your safety. It's
an accepted fact that all fluorescent tubes emit radio waves and
Dr. Ott's research further identified that the cathode ends of all
fluorescent tubes also emit harmful low-level x-ray radiation.
Only our safe
bioLIGHTSYSTEMS address these dual radiation problems. We enclose
the cathodes ends with a lead shield, thereby stopping the x-rays.
We control the radio waves by combining a grounded wire grid with
the prismatic diffuser lens. The entire system is then fully grounded
back into the fixture.
Dr. Ott was
the key force behind the research and development that produced
the original full-spectrum Vita-Lite fluorescent tubes. However,
subsequent testing by Dr. Ott led him to recognize the need for
vital improvements—specifically the shielding of harmful radiation.
This led to the development of the OTT bioLIGHTSYSTEMS' WinterBright
and NaturalBright lightboxes, which incorporate all of his latest
research into the ONLY patented, radiation-shielded, full-spectrum
lightboxes on the market today.
