Light As Medicine: Treating Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD)

Today's podcast is with my friend and wildly successful entrepreneur, Brian Richards, the CEO of SaunaSpace. We're talking about light as medicine for treating seasonal affective disorder otherwise known as sad for depression and anxiety.

By the way, this is not a medical show and none of this is medical advice I have to say that because of regulations so just know that nothing we share on this show ever should be taken in the place of your qualified position okay cool.

Now that I've said that let's talk more about this photon sauna therapy. It has absolutely been a game-changer for me. I have no longer been using my other sauna, the one that takes an hour to heat up when it's cold outside.

I have been using the SaunaSpace photon heat infrared therapy for over a month now and it has absolutely rocked my world. I sweat, I detox, and I feel good in the mornings, especially on those cold, foggy, gray mornings when the last thing you want to do is go outside and try to stare at the sun through all of the clouds.

I know you feel me we all know the benefits of morning sunlight but what do you do if you can't get it, what do you do if it's literally freezing outside but you want your skin to absorb light closest to the Sun?

I've got the remedy for you. Today we're learning about the history of light baths and photon sauna therapy which is totally radically different than any sauna you have ever heard about.

This technology has been around for over 100 years it is making a resurgence right now and in the wellness industry. I've been using it every single day my family loves it I love it I know you're going to love it too.
