Environmental therapeutics is a growing set of effective treatments that use natural phenomena, such as light, and air. Difficulties that tend to respond well to these therapies include:
- Troubles with sleep
- Reactions to shift work
- Changes to Daylight Saving Time
For example, a recent multi-site study by psychiatrist Ray Lam and colleagues found that light therapy was far more effective than Prozac (fluoxetine) for major depression.
