Depression’s Secret Cause REVEALED
You don’t need to be a doctor to see that depression is becoming an epidemic.
If you haven’t been personally affected by this crippling disorder, I’m sure you know someone who has.
According to a new report, global depression rates have risen a whopping 20 percent over just the past decade.
There are 322 million people suffering from depression right now. That’s roughly the population of the entire United States.
The rising depression rates are something I’ve been warning about for years. And the cause is something that our government… and even lots of docs… don’t want to talk about.
Our excessive exposure to artificial blue light is responsible for depression – and a host of other conditions, too.
Blue light is the kind caused by cell phones, computers, and flat screen televisions. And those “energy-efficient” LED light bulbs that are supposed to be saving the planet are the worst offenders of all!
With today’s technology-driven world, people are glued to blue-light emitting devices practically 24/7, and it’s ruining our health.
When we are exposed to blue light constantly, it throws off our body’s clock and disrupts our circadian rhythm.
Our bodies basically can’t tell night from day, and this seriously disrupts our production of melatonin, a critical brain chemical.
It would be impossible for me to overstress the importance of our circadian rhythm. This 24-hour clock releases hormones that regulate appetite, energy, mood, sleep, and more.
Even the slightest disruption in this critical life-cycle can wreak havoc on both our physical and emotional health. Just think about how something as simple as flying from one coast to the other can produce “jet lag” that can impact you for days.
One recent study showed that people who were exposed to light at night started showing signs of depression after just a few weeks.
The constant exposure to blue light at the wrong time of day, and the subsequent disruption in circadian rhythms, are a recipe for health disaster—and it is definitely a factor in the rising rates of depression.
Before committing to a lifetime of (expensive, dangerous) antidepressants, wouldn’t it make sense to tackle a potential cause? Especially one as simple as this?
That’s what I call a no-brainer.
Here’s what to do:
Short of avoiding all contact with electronics and going to bed when the sun goes down, the easiest, cheapest, most effective solution is to wear amber blue-light blocking glasses starting at 8 p.m.
I use Uvex glasses, but you can find lots of different brands online.
You’ll notice you’ll get sleepy almost instantly. And over time, as you learn to follow your body’s natural circadian rhythms, you’ll notice you’ll feel better too.
That sounds a lot better to me than spending a lifetime on risky antidepressants.
To a brighter day,
