Light Therapy for Sleep Phase Disorders
Light therapy can be effective for the treatment of both sleep phase delayed and phase advanced patients.
For sleep phase delay disorders where you have trouble waking in the morning and trouble falling asleep at a desired time in the evening the use of a light therapy device in the early morning hours and again during the day if feelings of being extremely tired occur is best.
After a few weeks of following this regimine your circadian clock should slowly begin to shift into a more desired sleep/wake cycle resulting in an increased quality of sleep.
In a test of our products at the Cleveland Sleep Disorder Clinic a patient with severe sleep phase delay was able to begin increasing her amount and quality of sleep after just a short period of time using this process.
