 Light Therapy  HOL-emblem

Safety

Please be aware that these studies are all preliminary. Currently, light therapy is not an approved treatment for non-seasonal depression, menstrual regulation, night-owl insomnia, bulimia or lupus. But if you have an abnormally long menstrual cycle, it can't hurt to try the light therapy. If you have another of these conditions, discuss the possibility of light therapy with your physician before embarking on a treatment plan.

One of the main safety Concern of light therapy is the possibility of exposure to ultra violet (UV) light, which can ultimately cause sunburn, eye damage and skin cancer. Please make sure that the equipment you use has the proper filtering/shielding for UV before using.
