The Lo-LIGHT Therapy Lamp
Comfortable Low-Intensity GreenLIGHT Therapy
Confirmed by Independent Research on Human Circadian Rhythms and Mood Disorders
Lo-LIGHT phototherapy lamps are as effective as 10,000 lux white light or blue light therapy lamps.
Lo-LIGHT lamps emit no blue light that can contribute to vision loss by users of light therapy.
Lo-LIGHT lamps emit only 5% of the light intensity of bright light therapy lamps, making them safe and comfortable.
Light Therapy and Circadian Rhythm Research Updates
Recent Study Supports "Night Shift a Carcinogen".
New research supports the WHO classification of night shift work as a “probable
carcinogen”. A study published in April 2019 finds night shift workers have impaired DNA repair mechanisms
resulting in 30% higher levels of DNA breaks, which can cause cancer.
In addition to cancer, several neurological ailments associated with aging, such as Parkinson's disease, Huntington's disease, and Alzheimer's disease, are linked to increased levels of DNA damage or impaired DNA repair mechanisms, as are heart disease and diabetes. Light Therapy is proposed as a method of preventing circadian rhythms disturbance and deterioration in the health of night shift workers.
The National Sleep Foundation links long term night shift work to higher rates of type 2 diabetes, heart disease, certain cancers, pulmonary disease and neurological diseases, as well as metabolic problems, ulcers, gastrointestinal problems, obesity and depression. Disturbed sleep and disrupted circadian physiology and are considered to be the cause of the health problems and performance deficits found in people who work at night.
The immune system displays circadian oscillations in immune function, being higher at night and lower during the day. Circadian disruption leads to dysregulation of immune responses and inflammation which can further disrupt circadian rhythms. Circadian biology of immune response influences respiratory-related inflammatory diseases including chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, allergic rhinitis, and asthma.
Re-aligning circadian physiology with the work schedule using properly timed light therapy can eliminate the deterioration in performance and alertness of night shift workers. See Light Therapy in the Workplace. Light therapy should also eliminate the negative effects that night shift work has on health.

"The white light is effective, however, I looked forward to the green light ...Using the green light was a pleasure rather than a discipline."

"I thought the lamp was great. I felt calmer and less sleepy during the day...it was easier to get up in the morning"

"I use it after coming off the night shift. It helps in shifting me back and helped decrease the frequency of my migraine headaches."

"I am really pleased that we found your product. My son has been struggling with his sleep cycle for years due to late-stage Chronic Lyme Disease and he is now getting up at about 9:30 am and going to bed about 12:30 am. This is a huge improvement from where he started and we have every reason to believe it will continue to get better. Thanks for doing what you do!!"

"Years ago, I was diagnosed with a severe case of the sleep disorder DSPS and I have been suffering from it all my life....In 2008, I started taking advantage of blue light technology, but 2 years later I had some problems with my eye sight. I have now been using the green light instead of the blue one for a few months, and it has done wonders for me. Not only am I no longer worried about my eye sight, it is also even more effective than the blue light was, in my personal experience. My work days are obviously a lot more productive as well and by merit of that alone, the green light has already paid for itself.
"I recently retired and almost immediately started suffering from insomnia. Then fall came and I also fell into a depression (SAD). I started to use green light therapy, and the results were simply amazing. Within one week my insomnia and SAD were completely under control. I now get up with no problem, have lots of energy throughout the day, and am in a good state of mind. I am very happy with Green Light therapy."

"I felt less depressed..The very first time I used the lamp I felt very energized." "It reminded me of my previous job when I worked outside in the sunshine. When I used the lamp I felt like the sun was shining on me."

It's Worth It To Protect Your Vision
Experts continue to express caution regarding the risk of impaired vision from exposure blue wavelengths light.
The Lo-LIGHT therapy lamp is the only light therapy
lamp used for sleep and mood disorders that does not emit blue light, contribue to retinal damage, and advance the onset of
Age-Related Macular Degeneration.

Night Shift Workers and Sleep
Chronobiology can help us regulate of the internal body clock through by timed exposure to appropriate light sources.
The Lo-LIGHT can help with the problems associated night shift work
by regulating sleep and mood disorders. Expand
Chronobiology is used in the treatment of sleep disorders like DSPS, for correcting the disturbed sleep patterns and circadian rhythm disruption that often occurs in shift workers and older people, as well as for in treatment of mood disorders.
Lo-LIGHT lamps have been shown to be highly effective in regulating the human internal body clock and have demonstrated their effectiveness in improving alertness and performance of night shift workers in studies conducted by both university and military researchers.
CEMS, a counter-fatigue program for night shift workers was developed using
Lo-LIGHT lamps. CEMS was successfully tested on operational
U.S. Coast Guard cutters as well as on commercial vessels operating on American inland waterways and on oceans.
