Blue Season

Blue Season

A significant percentage of Americans suffer from clinical depression, but milder feelings of sadness and melancholy can strike at any time. For many, the holiday season can be a poignant trigger.

It can creep up, like the slow and steady advance of the tides, or sweep suddenly from some hidden place, set loose by physical illness, heartbreak, job loss, or the passing of a loved one. Regardless of its origin, depression can take a devastating toll on every aspect of a person’s life. In the winter season, both the lack of sunlight and the cluster of holidays can catapult feelings of mild melancholy into a state of overwhelming misery and gloom.

While it’s important to recognize that clinical depression should be treated by a qualified doctor or therapist, seasonal and milder forms of depression often respond well to holistic therapies.

There’s no denying that the gray skies and indoor lighting that define the winter months can have a profound affect on mood. Seasonal Affective Disorder, or SAD, is a recognized mood disorder that results from prolonged lack of sunlight. People who suffer from this condition may produce excessive melatonin during this time, enough to cause incapacitating symptoms of depression.

An average session lasts about 30 minutes and occurs only once a day, with morning being the optimal time for therapy. Look for light boxes from Alaska Northern Lights , Ultralux , and a variety of styles, brands, and sizes from.

Ancient medical systems and modern holistic medical practitioners recognize the inseparable and overlapping connection between mind, body, and spirit, and believe that an imbalance in any one area can affect the entire person. The subtle energies of homeopathy, aromatherapy, and flower essences work on an elemental level to balance and restore harmony to the whole person.

Aromatherapy utilizes various scents to alter mood. Essential oils can be applied topically, infused in bathwater, or released through candles. Scents with an uplifting effect on the psyche include bergamot, grapefruit, rosemary, frankincense, and fennel. Flower essences work by removing negative emotions on a deep and energetic level, restoring overall balance. Flower essences that help diffuse feelings o...
