A revolutionary way to combat the symptoms of SAD
The traditional way to treat the symptoms of SAD is lightbox therapy - sitting in front of a high intensity light for approximately an hour a day. However, the experts at Valkee have discovered an alternative. They have developed the first SAD light technology that works via the ear canal, through a small device that looks like an MP3 player, and shines the light into the ears via earbuds.
"You don’t need bright light in your house. You need to light up your brain – that’s where your mood lives"
This technology has been developed on the principal that in order for the light therapy to be effective, it needs to hit the photosensitive parts of the brain - lightboxes worked in this way via transmitting the light through the eyes - but the Valkee system transmits the light through the ears - this is where the skull is thinnest and therefore the light can reach the photosensitive parts of the brain more efficiently.
"The truth is... I have felt genuine benefits"
Studies have shown a marked improvement in the symptoms of SAD with just 8-12 minutes use a day - much quicker than traditional SAD lightbox therapy. 92% of winter blues sufferers experienced a total relief from their symptoms in 4 weeks.
"Using the Valkee in the morning helps me get up and get going, with the kind of energy and good mood I'd normally only have in the evening."
It also makes it easier for me to fall asleep at night.
What's more, Valkee can be used to combat jetlag, as the light helps to regulate the body's circadian rhythm (the one that's responsible for sleep), so if you're a frequent traveller, this could help you too. And, due to the small and convenient size of the unit, you can use it in the morning, during your commute, or at work. It's portable and looks just like an MP3 player.
"I used Valkee in California... from the very first day I felt no jetlag symptoms..."
The Valkee Bright Light Headset has been clinically tested and is registered as a Grade II Medical Device. It's a new and innovative way to combat the crippling symptoms of SAD and jetlag.

- Twelve minutes and I am human again! Amazing Review by jamilla
The Valkee works perfectly for me, I use it the morning – I find that it helps me get up and get going, with energy and a sense of wellbeing. A treatment cycle is only 12 minutes long
I have had the Valkee for two weeks now and I have so far used it daily. I'm so glad I went for it! (Posted on 4 June 2013)
I contacted the Valkee Chief Science Officer Juuso Nissilä and he said that when they did a clinical test they observed the following. 'Slightly over half of the SAD/ bright light lamp users (traditions lamp variety you use on a desk or tabletop) had mild side effects such as irritation of the eyes or a headache. He added that of those who used the bright light headset in their trials only one fifth reported mild side effects such as irritation of the ear canal or headache'.
I had not heard of this before and I can quite understand why you would want to steer clear of medications and try an alternative treatment.
I was working on some copy about Vitamin D the other day and I found this paper (not all in Norweigan!) http://munin.uit.no/bitstream/handle/10037/5128/thesis.pdf?sequence=2
We have a Vitamin D3 that is very good and one of the staff here swears by it, because like you she suffers with depression and the resultant migraines/headaches etc http://www.stressnomore.co.uk/pharma-nord-bio-vitamin-d3-40-10373.html
I don't know if this will help - but it is certainly worth a try and I am a huge fan of D and D3 in particular. I would be interested to see if with a D3 supplement using the Valkee would not bring on a headache.
I'd be very interested to see how you get on, please let me know
