S.A.D - Seasonal Affective Disorder

What is S.A.D (Seasonal Affective Disorder)?

Seasonal Affective Disorder affects many people during the long, dark winter months. The condition can cause feelings of depression, despondency, lethargy, loss of energy, anxiety and lack of libido.

Approximately 50% of non sufferers have some degree of SAD symptoms during winter months or prolonged bad weather. This will adversely affect mood ratings and memory performance as well as increasing the risk of Ricketts in unborn children due to the lack of vitamin D.

Now you can top up your missing vitamin D and fight the winter blues at the Medely Clinic in Grays with the use of the Ultima 4 Light Box providing 10,000 Lux of natural daylight to help redress the balance of your mind and body. If you recognise the symptoms and think you might be suffering from S.A.D. make an appointment and discover the difference the Ultima 4 Lightbox can make to your life.
