Improving Depression and Anxiety with Red Light Therapy

This number rose dramatically during the COVID-19 pandemic, with 4 in 10 US adults reporting symptoms of anxiety or depressive disorder, up from 1 in 10 in 2019.
It’s becoming increasingly clear that depression is not just an individual problem, but a global public health issue, as well, highlighting the need for effective, affordable treatment. • In a 2017 study, 39 participants suffering from depression received multi-watt near-infrared light therapy (between 8 and 34 sessions, depending on patient improvement, at 9-12 minutes each).
Ninety-two percent (92%) of patients showed a dramatic reduction in depression symptoms, with many showing significant improvement after only 4 sessions. Patients were mostly still in remission 2, 6, and 12 months post-treatment. Though further research is needed, within the 10 studies so far on the use of red light therapy to treat depression and anxiety disorders with 9 of the 10 studies showing positive results.
