When Is Seasonal Affective Disorder Light Treatment An Effective Option
For many folks fall and winter are the most dreadful periods of the year. And it isn’t just thanks to the climate. It’s thanks to the persistent sense of unhappiness, the constant shortage of energy and definite shortage of wish to do pretty much anything. Fortunately, all these awful symptoms are symptoms of a typical and simple to treat condition: Seasonal Affective Disorder Depression.
If you’ve been suffering from SAD, and even if you have some of its indications but have not been officially diagnosed with it yet, you certainly understand that the question isn’t if treatment is available but which is the best treatment alternative. Put simply, should you select mood depressant medications, behavioral therapy or seasonal affective disorder lights therapy. Let’s shortly review each of these options.
Folks with typical Seasonal Affective Disorder are usually prescribed antidepressants. Antidepressant medication therapies are efficient as studies have indicated. However, they also have 2 serious drawbacks: unwelcome side-effects and short-lasting effects. Put simply, not only can a person have diverse side-effects from taking these medications but the effect of the therapy isn’t always guaranteed once it is discontinued.
Research has demonstrated that cognitive mental treatments deliver more long-lasting results. Basically, such treatment aids the individual to figure out the reason for the mood changes and adjusts them back. These mental adjustments help folks transform their cognitive processes and thus their feelings. Although mental treatments are useful and deliver lasting results, it is clear that they cannot provide instant results. Also, such therapies typically need a larger participation – you need to dedicate your efforts, time and money in order to get better.
One of the commonest and excellent remedies is the seasonal affective disorder lights treatment. Seasonal effective disorder lights therapies use artificial lights or a combination of sunlight and artificial lights as a tool to raise a person’s mood. The beauty of a seasonal affective disorder lights treatment isn’t just in its efficacy; it is very accessible, extraordinarily affordable and one hundred percent natural. It works instantly and there are not any undesired side-effects. Actually, the only thing that an individual needs is a proper light therapy machine.
My grandmother is on pills for high blood pressure (Atenolol 75mg per day, aspirin 75mg, bendroflumethiazide 2.5mg & coracten xl m/r capules 30mg). She wants to take coenzyme q10 for gum disease, so would it be safe to take it with all this or would she be better off dropping the others and just taking coenzyme q10. Please don’t suggest she ask her doctor as she has and he’s never heard of it.
GiGi Your answer is not irrelevent its helpful thankyou.
Coenzyme Q10 must not be taken together with warfarin but should be OK with the ones that you have listed. If she drops the others then the Coenzyme Q10 alone would probably lower her blood pressure a bit but probably nowhere near enough. If the Coenzyme Q10 together with the others lowers her blood pressure more than is required (this is highly unlikely) then she could perhaps drop one of the others or perhaps even more than one. In general natural blood pressure lowering agents are much less effective than the prescription medications but in most cases you avoid those sometimes dreadful side effects that you get from your doctor’s prescription. In view of the fact that she is taking four different blood pressure medications already the extra blood pressure lowering effect of Coenzyme Q10 is likely to be very small so most likely she will have to keep taking those four.
