Seasonal Affective Disorder

Welcome to another HealthNews video news release brought to you by HealthNews.

In today’s news we look at ways to manage the symptoms associated with
Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD).

Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD) is a type of depression that returns in late fall or early winter when there is less sunlight as the days get shorter.

The farther you are from the equator, the more likely you are to have SAD and women get it four times more than men.

Some doctors believe fewer daylight hours raises levels of melatonin and lowers levels of serotonin, two substances that help keep your sleep regular and your mood even.

Some of the SAD symptoms include:
*feeling tired and sluggish
*low spirits for much of the day
*hard to sleep
*loss of concentration
*lack of enjoyment
*weight gain from overeating.

Here are some ways to manage SAD symptoms:

Light Therapy: You can use special lamps to help replace the sun that you miss during the winter months. These light boxes provide about 20 times more light than regular indoor lighting.

Vitamin D: Research shows mixed results on whether taking vitamin D can help with SAD, yet people typically have lower blood levels of vitamin D in the winter months.

Exercise: Regular exercises can really lift your mood and outdoor exercise in the sunshine has even more benefit.

Healthy Diet: Eat a balanced diet of veggies, whole grains, and fruits, and avoid sugar and “simple carbs” like white bread.

Sleep: Keep your sleep on a regular schedule to keep your mood even and to maximize your time in daylight.

A healthy lifestyle is the best medicine for a happy and healthy life!

Remember your best source for everything health is your chiropractor.
