WALSALL WINTER BLUES (Seasonal Affective Disorder) - £10 0ff first treatment

Now the clocks have changed and the day light hours seem mostly to be spent at school or work, Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD) can creep back into our lives leaving some Walsall people feeling very low, tired and not our usual selves. An estimated 7% of the population suffer from SAD, with a further 17% suffering from a less extreme version of the disorder, sometimes called Winter Blues.

What is it?

It is a type of winter depression caused by a biochemical imbalance in the hypothalamus due to the shortening of day light hours and the lack of sunlight in winter. It can range from a seriously disabling illness, to a mild, but still debilitating condition.

Symptoms Include:

  •  Depression
  •  Sleep Problems
  •  Lethargy
  •  Over Eating
  •  Poor concentration and memory
  •  Social Problems and Irritability
  •  Anxiety
  •  Loss of Sexual Desire
  •  Sudden Mood Changes in Spring
  •  Weakened Immune System



Light therapy (being exposed to a very intense light for up to 4 hours a day) has been shown to be 85% effective in diagnosed cases.

Other treatment includes Anti-Depressants, but these come with their own limitations and risk of side effects.

Many sufferers seek help with Homeopathy. This is a complementary system of medicine that treats the whole person, including physical, mental and emotional symptoms and has no side effects making it an ideal choice for sufferers of SAD, however severe their symptoms are.
