Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD) is more than the winter blues. Most of us feel a little less energetic when the sun goes down at 4:30 pm., but for those with SAD, it’s so much more. They lose interest in their favorite things, they crave carbohydrates, they can’t seem to get out of bed, or find anything to be happy about.
Current theories about what causes SAD seem to include three main ideas: dysfunctional melatonin production, dysfunctional seratonin production, and of course, lack of light.
For those who believe they may have SAD, please see a doctor. Medical or Naturopathic, there are treatments available. There is no reason for you or your family to suffer any longer.
Yours in health,
