Help is on the way!
With the weather you guys are getting up there you might be interested in the Verilux Natural Spectrum lamp. I might add, it has been damn cold here lately too.
I have sent one of these lamps to my sister in Michigan, Heather Clark (glass girl working on her Masters Degree in Portland, Oregon) and my daughter when she was in Olympia, Washington. They work great and you only need an hour or so exposure a day. I also recommend taking a high dose of Vitamin D daily too. ‘D’ is the new wonder drug/vitamin and is good for anything and everything. Check it out on the web – there is lots of info on it and all good from what I read.
Anyone out there using this lamp or one like it and have an opinion to share? Stay in touch, Mike
