Seasonal Affective Disorder Goes Away With the Luminette


People who travel a lot as well as those who deal with the winter blues or Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD) have one thing in common. They can benefit from a simple technology called “photo-therapy.” Photo or light therapy uses the wavelengths of daylight shining in the eyes to stop production of the sleep hormone melatonin in the brain. This is also thought to contribute to some aspects of depression.

Frequent travelers and sufferers of the winter blues will find that the Luminette from is a perfect tool to help them with this problem. The device resets daylight cycles in the body and reduces melatonin production. Already in widespread use in Europe, the Luminette glasses are coming to the United States soon.
