Does light therapy help treat depression?

A Answers (1)

  • There is conflicting evidence for the use of light therapy in treating nonseasonal depression. Research suggests that light therapy may benefit women who have depression during the menstrual cycle or during pregnancy. However, results are inconclusive.
