Eating Simple Carbohydrates

We tend to crave Carbohydrates during the Fall, Winter and even Spring months, particularly if you are having symptoms from Seasonal Affective Disorder. When we give into these cravings, we are often times eating simple carbohydrates such as Sugar, White Flour, White Rice etc… products. Maybe you are grabbing pretzels, potatoe chips, candy or something else that breaks down into your system as sugar.

If you are eating these types of foods, you probably are foregoing the Healthier foods such as Fruits, Vegetables, Whole Grain/ Whole Wheat products. For me, sugar also seems to blout me thus not providing the needed fluids for our bowels.

I just started with a wonderful “Whole Foods” Fruits and Vegetable capsule. It is made up of 17 quickly dried fruits and vegetables and recommended by Dr. Sears, the renown pediatrician who wrote 30 Books. If you don’t get your 9 to 10 servings of fruits and veggies in per day, this will help you greatly. You still need to eat fruit and vegetables but many of us don’t get the recommended amount.

After 6 days of taking these Whole Foods I started feeling a little bit more energy. People told me how fantastic the Juice Plus Orchard Blend ( Blended Fruit Juice Powders ) and the Juice Plus Garden Blend ( Blended Vegetable Juice Powders ). I couldn’t wait to start up. When my box arrived, I quickly opened it and took double the amount first thing.

Besides Seasonal Affective Disorder, SAD Disorder, I also have an autoimmune disease that just zaps away my energy. I have been so weak lately and once again feeling quite desperate to find something that will help me. Autoimmune diseases are not curable but hopefully manageable. I have high hopes for this as I have found that Antioxidants and B vitamins have been the most helpful for me. These are not vitamins they are Whole foods.

I have a great video, with Dr Sears and others talking about this product.

Does Gluten Constipate You?

Gluten can cause constipation (or diarrhea) in some people. If you happen to have a Sensitivity to Gluten or an Intolerance to Gluten or even Full out Celiac’s Disease, Gluten can cause problems for your digestive system. You may want to either try going on a Gluten Free Diet to see if this helps your constipation. Try for at least One to Two Months. Take special note if your constipation gets better or not. I find that when I go Gluten Free, I tend to eat WAY less Carbohydrates, because carbs so often have Gluten in them, and I also tend to eat WAY more Fruits and Vegetables.

Does Your Blood Go WAY Down during Seasonal Affective Disorder time periods?

When we get so Weak while suffering from Seasonal Affective Disorder you may want to have your Blood Pressure Checked. For some of us, we get so weak that our blood pressure drops drastically. You really need to seek your doctors advice for Seasonal Affective Disorder, Low Blood Pressure and or Constipation. For me, it seems like when my body slows down so drastically that my entire system slows down including my Digestive System. The SAD Disorder seems to cause Constipation.

Hints to Stop Constipation while Suffering from Seasonal Affective Disorder – SAD Disorder time periods
See Below for Links for much more information on How to Stop Constipation.

1. Eat 9 to 10 Servings of Fruits and Vegetables per Day – This seems like a lot but if you shoot for it, you probably will be eating more than you would normally.

2. Try Going Gluten Free for One to Two Months and then Slowly Add Gluten products back into your diet. Track what you Eat and your Bowel Movements. It is important to take note if eating Gluten Free Foods helps you Feel Better and Stops Constipation.

3. Drink at Least 64 ounces of Fluids per Day. Better Yet drink Half Your Body Weight in Ounces plus 10 ounces while Acutely Constipated.

4. Exercise. Walking in the Morning will not only Help you get more Sunlight but you will also stimulate Serotonin Levels in your Brain and get your body stimulated as well helping your Digestion System to help Stop Constipation.

5. If you can not get enough Sunlight, use a Seasonal Affective Disorder Light Therapy Box. I found what I believe

Finding a Doctor for Seasonal Affective Disorder

Hope and Help for Seasonal Affective Disorder
Finding a Doctor for Seasonal Affective Disorder and Hope and Help for SAD Disorder – Part 2 of 2 Articles by Little Linda Pinda

When looking for a Doctor

Talk to friends and family. Since so many people suffer from Seasonal Affective Disorder to various degrees, they may have a doctor that they highly recommend.

Do research on the Internet. Read Forums from Different Cities. I really like and have learned a great deal of good information about an area on http://citydataforum.com I met really nice people even met with one at here house. They also have a health forum but the information here is more general. Many people give names of doctors in their particular city, not necessarily to treat SAD Disorder but good information.

INCREDIBLE Whole Foods Capsules and an Awesome High Fiber High Protein Shake Mix

These Whole Foods Supplements are helping so much with Energy, Constipation and I am even noticing my nails are getting stronger. People told me I look healthier too. I started September 2012 and it took about 45 days to start noticing some of the help. It really takes 3 to 4 months to restore and rebuild your cells so more hope is on the way. Click the photo or this link to read and watch videos CLICK HERE for Information on Juice Plus.

General Internet Research. Rate my MD for Reviews and other doctor review sites is a good way to start and do a general Google search for Seasonal Affective Disorder Doctors in your city.

Most Importantly, speak to the doctor or nurse or read their website to see if they are sensitive to the needs of people suffering from Seasonal Affective Disorder. I believe you will KNOW from the first visit on if they will Listen to you and Help you with your SAD Disorder.

I wish so badly I would’ve discovered this particular light therapy box years ago. I feel that it could have saved me a HUGE amount of money and anguish. I thank the Lord every day that my husband was willing to move to Florida but we wish we could have stayed in Wisconsin to be closer to most of our family. (I just returned from a trip to Wisconsin and wished I would have had a portable Light Therapy box with me but I don’t know if that is worth the cost unless you have to travel quite a bit).

I finally found a medical doctor who also was an Integrative Specialist thoroughly understood the impact of Seasonal Affective Disorder and the various treatment methods. She was kind and not the demeaning as one of my doctors and had a host of treatment for SAD Disorder. She diagnosed me severe Seasonal Affective Disorder. Because my SAD Disorder was so severe, she said I needed to move much further south in a sunnier location.

To this day I will always wonder if I would have just found this particular SAD Disorder Light Therapy Box, if I could have avoided all the high costs of moving and leaving most of our family. I have read that 80% of people who suffer from Seasonal Affective Disorder do get help from light boxes. Those are fantastic percentages. This company also has a very generous 60 day Money Back Guarantee which is more than enough time to see if SAD Disorder light therapy will help you.

The other thing I found extremely helpful was vitamins and eating healthy as I have mentioned in other articles on this site. It is so important to avoid simple carbohydrates and to get the proper vitamins. Finally, doctors are acknowledging that certain vitamins are important for those suffering from Seasonal Affective Disorder. Please see my other articles for the vitamins that helped me the most.

I cannot emphasize this enough to find a medical doctor who is familiar with and understand Seasonal Affective Disorder. And if you’re lucky like I was to find a doctor who also specializes in Integrative Medicine, that is all the better.

Bringing Family Members to the Doctor with You.
I believe it is also important to bring in close family members to talk to your doctor so they will have an understanding of SAD Disorder. It is so important for your family members to understand what seasonal affective disorder is the symptoms and how to help you cope with this illness. (It actually took me years to even call SAD Disorder an Illness).

There are so many things you can do to lessen the effects that seasonal affective disorder have on your life such as, light therapy (which is recommended by Mayo Clinic – see my article), many various vitamins, healthy eating, exercise and proper rest. I also wrote an article about planning a vacation or even pet sitting in the worst Seasonal Depression months. This will give you Hope and Help for SAD Disorder and something to look forward to.

Please Bookmark as one of your FAVORITES to keep coming back to this Site, http://SadDisorder.Org as I will continue to bring you Hope and Help for Seasonal Affective Disorder. Please also see other Articles on this site, such as Pet Sitting, Vitamins, Healthy Eating. I will be sharing some of my Favorite Recipes too.

Finding a Doctor for Seasonal Affective Disorder and Hope and Help for SAD Disorder – Part 1 of 2 Articles by Little Linda Pinda

Finding a Doctor for Seasonal Affective Disorder and Hope and Help for SAD Disorder – Part 1 of 2 Articles by Little Linda Pinda


What is Seasonal Affective Disorder?
Seasonal Affective Disorder – SAD Disorder, is a type seasonal depression that occurs approximately the same time each year. If you notice that you suffer from severe Winter Blues for two years or more, it is possible that you have Seasonal Affective Disorder.

Finding the Right Doctor to Treat SAD Disorder.

The first thing you want to do is to find a doctor who is familiar with Seasonal Affective Disorder. The reason why I suggest you find a Dr. who is familiar with SAD Disorder is because there are some doctors that do not understand Seasonal Affective Disorder.

Do Your SAD Disorder Symptoms get Worse for Longer Periods of Time as you get Older?
Ever since hearing about this Seasonal Depression in the 1980′s, I instinctively knew that I had SAD Disorder but I did not seek medical help until it started overtake my life. As the years went by, the time period that I suffered from the time Seasonal Affective Disorder expanded greatly from feeling a little more tired a little more crabby in January and February to where I became EXTREMELY Weak, SAD and felt like I just wanted to hibernate for months.

My symptoms began in October and would and until May of the next year. Wisconsin had three Junes in a row that almost every day was cloudy and or rainy and those years I didn’t get better until the end of June. To suffer from Seasonal Affective Disorder for 7 to 8 months of my life was terrible.

With how sick I felt, I thought there was something else wrong besides SAD Disorder. I first sought out medical help from doctors who didn’t seem to understand Seasonal Affective Disorder. After being totally discouraged by these doctors I heard about someone practicing natural Therapy. She sold me literally thousands of dollars of services and products. This was so difficult financially but I was desperate for help. I believe she knew I had Seasonal Affective Disorder, but didn’t mention it, but did instruct me to get more sunlight which is REALLY difficult to do in January and February with Wisconsin’s winters.

The Best Medically Approved Light Therapy Box – Watch Sales to Purchase for $299.00
After researching on the computer, I purchased a SAD Disorder Light Therapy Box for approximately $220. Unfortunately for me, not all SAD Disorder light boxes are created equal. I did get some help from my Seasonal Affective Disorder lightbox, but not enough. I have since discovered the only Medically Approved Seasonal Affective Disorder Lightbox, which is only $399.00 or if you time it right, sometimes you can purchase it for only $299.00 http://www.1shoppingcart.com/app/?af=1413828

I wish so badly I would’ve discovered this particular light therapy box years ago. http://www.1shoppingcart.com/app/?af=1413828 I feel that it could have saved me a HUGE amount of money and anguish. I thank the Lord every day that my husband was willing to move to Florida but we wish we could have stayed in Wisconsin to be closer to most of our family.

Take special note of the Spray Vitamins as I believe liquids metabolize in your system more thoroughly than pill forms. I have some lesser cost light boxes too but I really think it is worth the extra cost to purchase the Alaska product – see the Medical Light Therapy Ad.

What Should I Eat to Help My Seasonal Affective Disorder – SAD Disorder

Healthy Eating Tips for SAD Disorder

Help SAD Disorder with Veggies

What Should I Eat to Help Seasonal Affective Disorder – SAD Disorder

The Number One Rule to Help our Seasonal Affective Disorder is to AVOID Simple Carbohydrates. I even avoid eating too many Carbohydrates during the bad SAD Disorder months. I used to be a Carbohydrate Addict. I ate WAY too many carbs.

I find that curing a Carbohydrate Addiction is tougher than a Sugar Addiction or Cravings. For me, if I totally avoid Sweets for 3 Days, I no longer crave Sweets. With Bread type Carbohydrates, it literally took me months to stop the cravings and to this day, 10 years later, I still don’t have the intense desire to eat bread, pretzels etc… like I used to.


How I cured the Carbohydrate Addiction.
While seeking advice from an Integrative Natural Expert, I went on one of the toughest cleanses of my life. I can’t even necessarily recommend this form of cleansing because it was long and difficult to follow but I was motivated to get well. It did indeed cure my carb addiction however which I do believe eating too many carbohydrates is not a good idea for anyone let alone someone suffering from Seasonal Affective Disorder – SAD Disorder.

I ate ONLY Fruits and Vegetables for a couple of months with a slow integration of lean protein such as chicken. When I was allowed any carbohydrates after 2 months, it was Gluten Free ONLY. After about 4 months, I finally didn’t have the intense Carb cravings.

During this time I also went on a couple of Liver Cleanses.

It may be easier for you to just slowly lessen the amount of Flour Based Carbohydrates. The reason I say Flour Based is because I am a firm believer that Fruits in our Daily Diet is Good For Us. God made this amazing food for us to enjoy and I for one thoroughly enjoy my Fruit and it is one of the best foods to Stop Constipation for me especially during Seasonal Affective Depression Periods.

Consult Your Doctor
If you have Health conditions that require a special diet, please consult your doctor before starting any cleanse or deciding on what to eat to help your SAD Disorder.

Eating a Well Balanced Diet, low in Simple Carbohydrates is best for Seasonal Affective Disorder. We CRAVE Carbohydrates during this time and tend to gain weight. I have gained weight during the winter and I have lost weight during the winter. We REALLY have to decide to be careful not to gain weight during the Seasonal Affective Disorder time period.

Here is a typical general eating plan for me. I don’t even mind eating the same thing for breakfast and lunch.

Breakfast

Tea with Lemon, Honey Stevia
1 ounce Raw Nuts – Almonds, Walnuts, Brazil Nuts are some Suggestions
1/2 ounce Dried Cranberries

Snack

1/2 Cup Low Fat or Fat Free Cottage Cheese
Slice of Pineapple if desired

Lunch

Fiber Packed Fruit Smoothie see recipe link below

Snack

Carrots – Raw or Cooked Unlimited amount of Vegetables any part of the day
Gently boil a 1 pound package of baby carrots in 2 quarts of water with 1/4 cup sugar and 1 tsp salt. You want the carrots to be a bit crisp and not over cooked and soft.
(I love snacking on Carrots that are slightly boiled in Sugar and Salt Water, this is better than candy and a way to help you get off of the candy and sugar habit)

Dinner

4 Ounces Chicken
1 Cup Steamed Brocolli (don’t over cooke, keep a bit crisp to keep as much nutrition as possible)
1/2 Cup Brown and Wild Rice (flavor with dried onions, parsley and your favorite seasoning)

Evening Desert Snack

My Berry Yogurt Dessert
1/2 Fat Free Yogurt Plain
1/2 Cup Frozen Blackberries, blueberries, triple berries etc…
1/2 tsp Vanilla
A Few drops of Stevia or to taste (3 to 7 drops)

If you are looking to Lose a bit more Weight, you can eliminate the Rice and One of the Snacks. Use only Stevia in your tea also instead of any honey.

Eat Unlimited Amount of Vegetables (see exceptions)
Eat as many Vegetable as you like. (Please Limit high Carbohydrate Vegetables such as Peas, Corn, Potatoes etc…) Unlimited amount of Cruciferous Vegetables (Broccoli, Cauliflower, Brussels Sprouts, Cabbage etc…) will help you to lose weight without adding many calories.

Here are a few products that can help you to begin your Weight Loss Journey

Pet Sit to help with Seasonal Affective Disorder

My Second Pet Sitting Experience

Pet Sitting

One of the best things I did to help deal with Seasonal Affective Disorder – SAD Disorder was to do Pet Sitting. After long discussions and some research, I would pay for the plane ticket to get to someones home and would care for their pet/pets and home while they went away. In my particular situation, I chose to do a few weeks to a month at a time so I would not be away from my husband for too long of a time.

Finding a City or State to do your Pet Sitting in is one of the First Decisions you need to make. Pick a city that is far enough South and Sunny enough.

When preparing to find a city or state to go to, make sure it is far enough and sunny enough to help you with your SAD Disorder as Seasonal Affective Disorder needs a great amount of sunshine and in the dead of winter, SAD Disorder will respond better the closer to the equator that you get. For instance, I felt better in Miami than in Orlando area in January and February. Because I have Severe Seasonal Affective Depression – Disorder, I NEED to be as far south as I can get and as sunny of an area as possible. When choosing the city that you want to visit while doing the house and or pet sitting, consider, Southern California, Southern Florida, Arizona, Southern Texas. Colorado is sunny but may not be far enough south for you but chances are it is sunnier than where you are now living. The higher altitude could do the trick for your Seasonal Affective Disorder – SAD Disorder.

Where to find Services that Advertise House and or Pet Sitting?

I went through http://www.housecarers.com/ listed Pet/Home Sitters and Home Owners. This is a fantastic service that will put your information on their site and show brief information and location of people in need of a pet sitter. I posted a REALLY complete biography including several photos to help set the homeowner at ease. I also offered the serious homeowners my background information so they could check on my background. This was my own suggestion to them to put them at ease about who they were inviting to care for their “baby” and their home. I suggest you THOROUGHLY investigate the homeowner as well. Use caution here also.

The Homeowners felt very comfortable with having me care for their precious pets and their home after long conversations. I would sure have to think twice about a total stranger living in my home and pet sitting for my precious ones. This service only costs $50.00 for the entire year. I of course was only interested in pet sitting in the winter or early spring.

You can find Pet and House Sitting situations for a week to many months at a time. Different people expect different things. In Pet Sitting for instance, I paid my round trip flight and purchased my own food (they bought the initial food). I have seen other situations where the homeowner asked the sitter to pay for some expenses, such as utilities. In my pet sitting experience, the homeowner had the lawn care taken care of my a professional service but I have read others homeowners put in the profile that they needed someone to care for the lawn and or garden as well. This tends to be for the longer term situations. I believe you could negotiate with the homeowner if needed.

I was lucky as I stayed in gorgeous homes in lovely areas. One place was 2 miles from the ocean. The dog and I took long walks. I also trained the dogs while the home owner was away (I am not a professional dog trainer, I just love dogs and picked up tips on dog training). That was not expected by the homeowner, just an added plus for them. My second pet sitting opportunity, the 1 year old young and VERY rambunctious dog had just failed his “Pet Therapy Training”. Before the homeowner/parents left, I asked that they show me what the little guy needed to learn. I spent the entire month working with him on all of his training tasks and commands and added many tricks and commands of my own. The homeowners were absolutely thrilled when they came back home to see what he all learned. She wrote me to tell me that her rambunctious little guy “Passed his Therapy Test” and that I was a “Star”. I was so excited. She also told me that he was looking for me. I especially miss him and still communicate with them.

Planning a trip south will also give you something to look forward to and give you the hope you need to deal with the Seasonal Affective Depression part of this terrible illness. Do you know that it took me years before I would finally call SAD Disorder a illness. I just kept referring to it as a condition or disorder but I now think it is an illness that many people and even doctors don’t fully understand.

I was even asked to come back and the homeowners offered to pay for my trip. I was not able to go due to a family wedding.

I will cherish my memories of pet sitting forever.

As mentioned, please be very careful when selecting someone to pet or house sit for. Do your due diligence and investigate and ask for reference as they should do the same with you.

Here is the Link again for the awesome place that I found my homeowners. I can’t recommend this opportunity enough but do your homework. Check the safety of the area and if you can, do a criminal background check. Usually each state will have court record searches. Thoroughly check them out.

SAD Light Therapy Product – This sounds like the best one to me because it is the ONLY Medically Approved SAD Light Therapy

And when you can’t go south in the fall, winter and spring when your Seasonal Affective Disorder is at its worst, consider purchasing this Medically Approved SAD Light Therapy Product. Read the fantastic reviews on their site too. They say 80% of people get help with SAD Light Therapy Products.

Where to find Services that Advertise Pet and House Sitting?

I Googled and found Housecarers.com and paid a $45.00 per year to join the website that listed Pet/Home Sitters and Home Owners. (Many various sites) I posted a REALLY complete biography including several photos to help set the homeowner at ease. I also offered the serious homeowners my background information so they could check any possible criminal history. I suggest you THOROUGHLY investigate the homeowner as well.

The first pet sitting opportunity told me they chose me because I was one of the few that wrote such a complete and nice biography on myself. Think of it as a job reference. The competition can be really tough so put your best foot forward and be prepared for the interview. Please LOVE animals if you do this otherwise consider house swapping or house sitting without pets.

Note from Little Linda Pinda,
One of my brothers thought it was ridiculous that I would do this for free because the homeowners were getting a service. Because of my SAD Disorder, I found it to be a true blessing to have a beautiful home and nice pets to care for and feel better. One of the homeowners even bought me a lounge chair to help me enjoy the California sunshine to help with my Seasonal Affective Disorder. That was really nice. She told me later that her dog kept smelling the lounge chair looking for me. We really bonded in that month.

Hope and Help for Seasonal Affective Disorder – SAD Disorder

I added an Amazon Mini Store with some of My Favorite Products and other SAD Disorder Products. Thank you so very much for shopping at my Links as this helps me to continue to bring you helpful information and you SAVE a big bunch of money at the same time.

Here are some of the Tips that I found help me and others I know with Seasonal Affective Disorder.


1. Light Therapy is possibly the number One thing you can do to Help with Seasonal Affective Disorder. I believe it is worth the extra cost to purchase Quality SAD Lightboxes.

2. Vitamins – Again Quality Vitamins is the Key. Also, Liquid and Powder Vitamins may metabolize in your digestive tract more thoroughly.

3. Eating Properly – Avoid simple Sugars and Carbohydrates.

4. Plan your Vacation for the Worst SAD Disorder Months

See more details below.

1. Seasonal Affective Disorder Light Therapy Box – SAD Disorder Lightboxes

In my opinion after suffering many years with Severe Seasonal Affective Disorder – SAD Disorder, I would give SAD Light Therapy a try to see if this not only helps to Stop Constipation but to also help lift your moods, your blood pressure and energy level. The Mayo Clinic recommends SAD Light Therapy for those who suffer from Seasonal Depression or severe winter blues.

I am not a doctor, so this is a personal opinion, but it makes sense to me that if your body is slowing down so much in the winter, fall and or spring that your blood pressure drops or you are so exhausted your heart pounds just to walk or move, (I feel as though my body is shutting down) and you get constipated because of this slowing down, than it makes sense to me that if Light Therapy helps you get more energy, I would sure hope it would help you to Stop Constipation as well.

80% of people benefit from SAD Light Therapy but Not everyone will benefit from Seasonal Affective Light Therapy. Since so many people do that I do think it is worth a try. You should know in about a week if it is helping you or not. I recently read that approximately 80% of people will benefit from SAD Light Therapy. It is usually recommended that you use a 10,000 Lux Full Spectrum Light box.

At the time of this Article being Posted the SAD Light Box is $100.00 off. I don’t know how long this sale will last but here is your chance to pay approximately the same price, a bit more, and get a Medially Approved Light Box. See the Awesome Reviews to by clicking on the Ads above and below. And as always, I really appreciate that you are shopping through my Links as it helps me with my new internet business and I hope to continue to bring you helpful information to Stop Constipation, get Seasonal Affective Disorder help etc….

There are many, many SAD Therapy Lightboxes on the market. This is such an important reason to buy the best SAD Light possible. That is why I would definitely spend more to buy a quality lightboxes and vitamins. If the lightboxes and vitamins don’t work, then the money you spent is thrown away. I you can’t afford to purchase an SAD Light Therapy Box, see if your insurance will cover some of the cost of the SAD Lightboxes if prescribed by your physician.

My Recommendations when using an SAD Light Therapy Box:

Start out Slowly – 15 minutes a day and work your way up to at least 1 Hour per day.

If you are so weak in the morning, have the SAD Light Box tilted toward your bed and lay toward the SAD Light Box but not Directly at it.

Setting it up next to your Computer will be really helpful too. The time will Fly by so much faster than when you lay in bed. I mostly used it in bed but I also set mine up by my computer off to the side. See the Mount for this which is sold separately.

There are so many degrees of Seasonal Affective Disorder – SAD Disorder from Mild Winter Blues to Full Blown Depression, Lack of Energy to Difficult time even getting out of Bed. Unfortunately I had about as bad of Seasonal Affective Disorder as you can get. My blood pressure would just tank, down to 74/45 at times, mostly 80′s/50′s in the months that I suffered from SAD Disorder.

I read that many, many people get help from SAD Light Therapy.

60 Day Money Back Guarantee. Worth the try, return it if you do not benefit from Seasonal Affective Disorder Light Therapy.

I wish so very, very much that I had found this ONLY MEDICALLY Approved Light Box before I was forced to move to Florida for my condition.

The financial cost to make such a huge move was gigantic to us. We had to sell property that was for our retirement, leave our family and the big cost of moving expenses took a real toll but I felt I had no choice. I knew about other SAD Light Therapy Boxes but the one I purchased for over $200.00 was not effective enough for me. I did feel some help from it but not enough.

This Light Therapy Box is the ONLY MEDICALLY Approved Seasonal Affective Disorder Light Therapy Box on the Market with even doctors using it for themselves. The testimonials are outstanding.

2. Vitamins

Fish Oil and Flax Seed Oil are often recommended to help with SAD Disorder and Depression. It is an all around good for you Supplement. See one of my favorite Fish Oil and Flax Seed Oil Brands Below. You can simply add it to your smoothie. (see my really delicious and healthy smoothie recipes on this site, one of the links is provided below)

Vitamin D3 may be the top recommended Vitamin not only for Seasonal Affective Disorder but also for general health. It was recommended to me to take it with a fat at the same time. Take it at the same time as your Fish Oil or Flax Seed Oil. I helps it to Metabolize better. Taking Vitamin D3 is essential for people especially those living in the Northern States but I am still taking that vitamin along with some other ones as well. Prior to taking Vitamin D3, my levels were low but now I am in the normal range. The doctor told me to take 4000 IU per day, which is way more than the normal recommendation so please ask your physician what amount you need to be taking. You may take more during the fall and winter months because the sunshine will provide any unprotected skin Natural Vitamin D.

Another vitamin that helped tremendously was B Complex Vitamins with B12. I have been taking this for years and hope to share the same one that I take with you but mean while, my friend is really happy and notices a big difference when he takes spray vitamins from Mercola.

I do believe that Liquid Vitamins and Spray are better at times than some tablet forms because they seem to break down and get into your system better. I am looking into finding information to share with you about the vitamins that I take but here are the ones my friend with Seasonal Affective Disorder – SAD Disorder has lots of success with.

4. Plan your Vacation or House Sitting in the BAD Months

When possible, plan your vacation during the most difficult SAD Disorder months for you. It will help you get your much needed sunshine and also give you something to look forward to and plan. For me, I can start feeling more energy and happier after 3 Days of sunshine. In about 7 I fell as though I am enjoying the full benefit the sunlight. Remember to wear sunscreen on more delicate areas of your body. Vitamin D does not penetrate through Sunscreen so it is a bit of a catch 22 of wearing sunscreen or not because of skin cancer. I tend to keep it off my legs and let that absorb the sunshine but beware of the dangers of sun exposure too.

I am also of the belief that Seasonal Affective Disorder will benefit from Natural Sunlight coming in through the windows. Plan your desk or comfortable chair near a window that captures plenty of sunlight. I put my desk right by the southern window in our home even though it is not the prettiest location for it. If you are in the market to purchase a home, I would and I did, buy a home with southern exposure. I get natural sunshine bathing my home for most of the daytime. I was also open to having the backyard facing West or East but when the sun is directly over the house, you won’t benefit as much. If you have a northern exposure home, just make a point of going outside in the front yard and having your desk or sitting area at a different location.

Try doing Pet Sitting or House Sitting. You can get a free place to stay while caring for peoples pets and house. Typically you pay your way there and back and get a home to stay in. Caution, do your research and criminal checks. I had AWESOME experiences with this with beautiful homes in Texas and California and really nice people. If they love you, maybe they will even pay your way next time.

5. Exercise

If possible, drag yourself outside tobriskly walk or some type of exercise to get even the far off sunshine and fresh air. Getting your circulation going is difficult. BELIEVE ME, I KNOW how HARD this is to do. I remember when it was 16 degrees outside and I would bravely take off my glove to expose bare skin to the sunshine. I am a whimp when it comes to cold. I get chilly when it is 70 degrees if it is not sunny.

While pet sitting, I walked the dog for miles to the beach and back.

When you live in the Northern States, in the winter, you may need 5 to 6 hours of sunlight to get enough sunshine per day (Summertime, 20 minutes may be enough. This is also an individuals particular need on how much sunlight time they need). That was not something that I could do or would even want to do. This is where the SAD Lightboxes could benefit you.

Seasonal Affective Disorder – Hope and Help for SAD Disorder

What is Seasonal Affective Disorder?

According to the Mayo Clinic:

Seasonal Affective Disorder Hope and Help

SAD Disorder (Seasonal Affective Disorder) otherwise known as Winter Depression or Seasonal Depression, is a form of Depression that you get around the same time of the year and ending around the same time of year. (Note from Little Linda Pinda, my Seasonal Affective Disorder time frame expanded greatly as I reached my forties and now fifties).

SAD Disorder is a type of depression that occurs at the same time every year. If you’re like most people with SAD Disorder – seasonal affective disorder, your symptoms may start in the fall and could continue through winter months, draining your energy and making you feel moody, less motivated and depressed. Less often, seasonal affective disorder causes depression in the spring or early summer. Seasonal Depression is much more than Winter Blues or a Seasonal Funk that you have to tough out. You need to stabilize your motivation and mood all through the winter depression months.

The symptoms of SAD Disorder might begin in the Fall, continue throughout the Winter months and may not end until the Spring.

Some of the Symptoms include:

Draining Your Energy

Moodiness, Cranky and or Sadness

Less Motivation to accomplish projects and work

Depression (I would have Excessive Crying Spells at times)

The Mayo Clinic treatment recommendations are as follows:

Light Therapy

Psychotherapy

Medications

A QUALITY Full Spectrum Light could be helpful for your Seasonal Depression as well. Here is a SAD Light Therapy Product that I recently discovered that I REALLY wish I would have know about earlier.

REVIEW of Seasonal Affective Disorder Lightboxes

My Seasonal Affective Disorder Light Therapy Box is a life saver for me. I live in the Northeast which I experience dreadful winters because of shorter days. My doctor recommended that I purchase a SAD Light Therapy product to help with my SAD Disorder symptoms. In the fall until the beginning of springtime. I don’t need it in the summer months. This SAD Disorder Light Therapy Box has made such a huge difference and my husband is so grateful for it, as am I. My husband could even see a change in my moods within a couple of weeks.

I noticed a difference after using just once this season and my husband even said how happy I seemed throughout the entire day. My SAD Light Therapy Box is is also great for lighting for my artwork as well and even motivated me to start my day out earlier than usual, and get some of my work done including my artwork. I can accomplish two things at once, getting my SAD light therapy time in and working on my art projects at the same time.

This Seasonal Affective Disorder Light Therapy is AWESOME!!! I researched so many other companies that make full spectrum lightboxes. I decided to purchase this SAD light box at Alaska Northern Lights because of their lifetime warranty, the size of the lightboxes, and the quality of the lightboxes.

Words just don’t express adequately just how grateful my husband and I are for this quality SAD Light Therapy Product.

Hello from Little Linda Pinda – SAD Disorder Introduction

I am so excited about launching this new website about Seasonal Affective Disorder. I have suffered from Severe Seasonal Affective Disorder for years. I would search the computer for hours and hours looking for hope and help for my SAD Disorder and wishing I could find the answers. I learned so many valuable tips, recipes, vitamins, foods, SAD Lightbox and general information that I would like to share with you.

I remember in the 1980′s when they finally came up with a name for Seasonal Affective Disorder and I said to myself, that is what I have. I have since been diagnosed with it and I advise that you see your medical professional for a diagnosis as I am not a medical professional.

I am here to share with you products and tips that worked for me and or others as well as recipes to get healthier and help with SAD Disorder. There is a definite difference between Seasonal Depression and Seasonal Affective Disorder and this is why it is very important to see your physician for your individual diagnosis. Please be sure to see a doctor who is familiar with Seasonal Affective Disorder.

I pray that God will lead you to the correct diagnosis, hope and help for SAD Disorder.

God Bless You in your venture to get healthy,
Little Linda Pinda
