Creating a Brighter Future Through Light Therapy
Advancements in light therapy technology are helping us to better understand the benefits that light can provide to our body and allowing us the ability to effectively treat a variety of medical and non-medical conditions naturally.
Light therapy products are becoming smaller, more convenient and more effective at re-syncing circadian rhythms and treating a variety of related issues. These advancements have created therapeutic devices that help us to live happier, healthier lives and restore our bodies to an all-natural, well-balanced state.
The Feel Bright Light by Physician Engineered Products (PEP) is the forerunner of these recent advancements. The Feel Bright Light is the smallest and most effective light therapy device available. It is completely mobile and provides patients with convenient, hands-free light therapy treatment on-the-go.
The Benefits of Light Therapy
Light has a unique healing power that many people believe can not be matched by medications or other forms of treatment. In the early 1980’s, researchers discovered that controlled exposure to specialized bright light was effective for treating Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD) and have since found light to be advantageous in the treatment of many non-seasonal mood problems as well.
For centuries people have understood that light has a positive effect on the body. We feel rejuvenated when exposed to sunshine and we tend to withdraw when submerged in darkness. Still, the benefits of light exposure are not simply psychological; light naturally produces serotonin that affect and improve our mood and well-being.
Numerous clinical, placebo-controlled studies have been conducted using light therapy to improve mood and treat circadian related disorders. These studies have confirmed that light therapy is just as effective in treating a variety of disorders as medication, without the associated long-term side effects. Also, patients using light therapy often see results in as little as one-week, which is much faster than the several weeks it can take patients to respond to medications.
Your Internal Body Clock
Each year many people’s circadian rhythm falls out of sync, this usually occurs around late fall as the days shorten and they are exposed to less sunlight. The circadian rhythm is a natural cycle that controls appetite, energy, mood, sleep and libido; when this cycle is out of sync many of the areas associated with it can suffer. Studies show that light therapy is a valid way of resetting the circadian rhythm and find it can actually improve the affected areas in less time, often with more effectiveness than medications.
The Feel Bright Light offers impressive results; with as little as 15 minutes of exposure in the morning you can feel more alert and energized throughout the day and sleep better at night.
Physician Engineered Products (PEP) has been developing light therapy products to help treat winter blues for decades. Our research and development resulted in the creation of The Feel Bright Light and GreenSafe™ Technology, the safest and most effective light therapy technology on the market today. GreenSafe™ Technology combines specific wavelengths of light in the visible green-blue spectrum with the proper intensity and timing, to deliver a quicker and more effective response than the standard full-spectrum 10,000 lux lights that are generally used. The GreenSafe™ Technology of the Feel Bright Light emits no UV rays or heat and falls on the safe end of the visible light spectrum protecting you from potential risk while providing highly effective treatment.
PEP’s GreenSafe™ Technology works because melanopsin, which are unique photoreceptors in the eye, are responsible for mediating the circadian response and they respond to a specific wavelength of blue-green light at a specific bandwidth. This delicate balance of light is responsible for suppressing melatonin and shifting circadian rhythms. GreenSafe™ Technology falls in this narrow range of 490 – 560 nanometers, peaking at 525, along the safer end of the green spectrum, combining state-of-the-art technology and natural physiology to encourage the body to naturally reset itself.
The Feel Bright Light is the only device that delivers the effective intensity of this bandwidth, making it the safest and most effective treatment option on the market.
