The power of light

Arabica provides extra-bright levels of light from two special bulbs. It can be used to treat SAD (Seasonal Affective Disorder) and sleep disorders, or to give anyone a mood, energy and concentration boost. Arabica is Lumie’s most affordable lightbox, perfect for treating SAD at home. It comes with a 3-year manufacturer's warranty.

Not many people realise how important bright light is. As the nights close in towards winter and the days become gloomy, many of us begin to feel more downbeat. For some it’s something we just accept: that we are more sluggish in the darker months, more tired at work, less happy overall. For others (estimated 1 in 4 in the UK) it is more serious – winter blues or more severe SAD syndrome can be crippling, making sufferers depressed, lethargic and unproductive.

Luckily it doesn’t have to be like this. Light therapy is a readily available, scientific treatment that’s proven to help treat sufferers of SAD and the winter blues in a natural and healthy way.

The science behind light therapy

Numerous published studies have linked the lower levels of light in the autumn and winter to tiredness, overeating, low moods and social withdrawal. And they have found that in the darker days exposure to bright light – much brighter than normal home or office lighting – can make people feel alert, upbeat and energised.

Light therapy works by resetting your internal body clock. Your body clock, which tells you when to sleep and when to be awake, is controlled by a small group of cells at the back of the brain. These cells release hormones and other chemical messages to prepare the body for sleep or activity, based on how much strong, regular light is reaching the eye. This light is affected by irregular sleep routines, poorly-lit environments and low levels of light over the winter, meaning that we can feel sluggish even when we are supposed to be awake. Exposing ourselves to very bright light sends stronger signals to the brain that it is daytime. This makes us feel more awake during the day and more ready for sleep at night.

Low serotonin levels (a feature of depression) improve significantly with light therapy and the production of cortisol (which helps us to get up and go) increases. Bright light suppresses the production of the hormone melatonin, which tells the brain it is dark and therefore time to sleep. In the darker winter months, or inside dimly lit rooms, low light levels may not provide a sufficient signal to stop melatonin being produced. A lightbox can change this.

Who is Arabica for?

Arabica is an affordable, medically certified lightbox with a fast treatment time designed for use at home. The high dose of light provided by Arabica is perfect for those who miss the light of summer and suffer from the winter blues or the more serious SAD. Many SAD sufferers have found that bright lights make a big difference to their lives.

Look out for lux levels

Light from Arabica has a brightness level of 10,000 lux at 25cm. Lux is a measurement of brightness as the light reaches your eye. Genuine SAD lightboxes should tell you their lux level and the distance at which it is achieved (and this distance should be a natural one for sitting next to the lightbox – 5cm would be impractical!). Arabica’s lux level has been independently tested and verified. Even the brightest office offers about 500 lux whereas Arabica provides 10,000 lux.

Arabica is a certified medical device

Arabica is certified to the Medical Devices Directive EC93/42. As a medical device, it conforms to European manufacturing standards and carries the correct CE mark. All Lumie lightboxes and SAD lights have been designed according to the results of relevant clinical trials and come with clear guidelines for correct medical usage. Our lamps are independently tested to confirm that they emit an only negligible amount of UV light – much less than normal daylight, which means that they are completely safe.

Lumie, the light therapy specialist

When you invest in a lightbox make sure it comes from a specialist, experienced company. Arabica is made by Lumie, the Cambridge-based company who specialise in light therapy products – and nothing else. Lumie invented the integrated dawn simulator (sunrise alarm) back in 1993. Working with the scientific community and gaining vital customer feedback over the years, they have developed the concepts into the best-selling Bodyclock range, as well as applying their specialist knowledge to create other devices for health issues such as SAD, jet lag and acne. They now sell a full range of SAD light boxes, SAD lamps, light alarm clocks and acne lamps.

Indications

Improves symptoms of SAD (seasonal affective disorder) and winter blues, eg: sleep problems, increased tiredness, depression, social withdrawal, irritability, mood swings, lethargy, carbohydrate cravings.
