Invented in Finland, HumanCharger® is a bright light therapy device that sends UV-free blue-enriched white light to the light-sensitive regions of the brain. Using the HumanCharger® only 12 minutes a day can significantly increase your mental alertness and energy levels and improve your mood.
The winter blues is a mild version of Seasonal Affective Disorder. Use the HumanCharger® on a regular basis once a day, at the same time each day, within two hours of waking up.
If your flight is eastward, use HumanCharger® from the morning until noon, at two-hour consecutive intervals up to four times. For a westward flight, use HumanCharger® from late afternoon to evening, at two-hour consecutive intervals up to four times. Repeat each day until you feel recovered.
Exposure to light helps maintain the rhythm of our natural body clock, so with HumanCharger® you always feel more energized. Tip for the shift workers: Use HumanCharger® for just 12 minutes every two hours during the time you feel most tired! You can use it while you work as it does not affect your ability to perform your daily tasks.
Between 2008-2010, Researchers at the University of Oulu , Finland, discovered that in addition to eyes, areas of the human brain are also sensitive to light. This sensitivity is due to the photoreceptor-proteins in the brain, which are similar to those found in the eyes, a discovery that had been made by researchers in the U.K. and the U.S. 10 years earlier. University of Oulo researchers found that brain areas can be reached by light through ear canals, ear tissues and bone skull. The Skull of large mammals, including humans, lets light pass through naturally. In ordinary daylight and daytime conditions the brain is constantly being exposed to light.
Each human cell synchronizes its activity with the sun – the main food source for most life forms on Earth. But it’s not always possible to enjoy the full daylight in our daily lives. Today, modern lifestyles can include, working more indoors, shift work and long-distance travel. This, as well as, changes of the seasons, affect the amount of light we are regularly exposed to.
Reduced daytime light causes many problems: from winter blues, mood swings and general fatigue to anxiety, sleep deprivation, carbohydrate cravings, and dampened spirits. These symptoms usually appear in the autumn and winter months when nights are longer and daylight is scarce. People who work in sunlight deprived environments or in shift work can also suffer from similar symptoms.
Bright light therapy has been used since the 1980’s, but it has been mostly administered through the eyes, which are known to be sensitive to light. This therapy requires people to sit in front of a bright light lamp, anywhere from 30 minutes to two hours each day.
Between 2008 and 2010, Researchers at the University of Oulu discovered the presence of photoreceptor-proteins on the surface of the brain, similar to those which exist in the eye. Following further research it was proven that light can also reach these areas of the brain through the ear canals, the tissue of the ear, and skull.
The skull of large mammals, including humans, lets light pass through naturally, and in ordinary daylight and daytime conditions the brain is always exposed to light.
The biggest advantages of the HumanCharger® bright light therapy device is convenience and efficiency. The device also uses a lot less energy than traditional bright light devices, and it does not cause eye irritation.
