techniques or energetic restructuring. Moreover, some persons are particularly sensitive to a reduction in sunshine that is experienced in the autumn. The lack of light affects their system and can cause them to feel blue or even experience a depression. This problem has been characterized by the name seasonal depression, of which 3% of Canadians are affected, in addition to the 18% who experience the “winter blues”.

Being exposed for 30 minutes per day to bright light (10,000 lux) used in light therapy can rectify the condition. These full-spectrum lights are available in drug stores and some health food stores. In general, 3 to 4 weeks of use can bring about obvious biological changes. The rate of effectiveness of the treatment is around 50 to 80%, which is just as effective as the use of antidepressant drugs, while being without side effects and less costly. Light therapy, associated with a renewal of your energy circuits, can make a big difference in your quality of life.

Do you suffer from seasonal depression?

If you always have the following symptoms at the same time of year, from October to March, and particularly from November to January, but they progressively disappear in the spring, you could be experiencing seasonal depression:

•    Chronic fatigue and sleepiness during the day.
•    Irritability or sadness, a lack of interest or initiative.
•    Trouble concentrating.
•    A lowering of libido.
•    An excessive need for sleep.
•    Excessive hunger and, in particular, a craving for sugar.
