Seasonal Affective Disorder
The Mayo Clinic defines light therapy as "a way to treat Seasonal Affective Disorder, depression and certain other conditions by exposure to bright artificial light. During light therapy, you sit near a device called a light therapy box or lamp. The light therapy device gives off bright light that mimics natural outdoor light."
Exposure to bright light from a light therapy box or lamp is thought to alter your circadian rhythms and suppress your body's natural release of melatonin. Together, these cause biochemical changes in your brain that help reduce or control symptoms of seasonal affective disorder and other conditions. Light therapy is also known as bright light therapy or phototherapy.
Light therapy to help treat symptoms of Seasonal Affective Disorder, is most effective when used for approximately 30 minutes a day several times a week, preferably in the morning.

About our Sunlight Solutions
Independent meter readings of natural sunlight were taken on a sunny day in Michigan on April 19th, 2005; 4:09pm. The natural lighting readings were compared to measurements of light emitted indoors from the BlueMax™ (away from any sunlight) for comparison.
The meter readings showed that sunlight and BlueMax™ are identical. BlueMax Lighting™ was specifically designed to be the most natural lighting source available. The addition of 6 custom phosphors along with a high output 70 watt full spectrum bulb have combined to create the closest thing to sunlight indoors.
