The High Powered Diamond 3 s.a.d light therapy light box lamp is the mid-range model in the versatile Diamond range of light boxes for Seasonal Affective Disorder SAD.  Diamond light boxes have a sleek, ergonomic design to bring the light to you in the most efficient way possible.

The enhanced curved shape used in all the Diamond models, focuses the light to the point where you are sitting for maximum effect, while the smooth opal diffuser gives a beautiful even luminosity.

The Diamond 3 sad light box comes complete with a base allowing it to tilt forward or backward 6-12", as research has shown that angled light that hits the back of the retina can be more beneficial.

These lightweight boxes are fitted with a handle so they can be carried easily. Both the 3 and 4 lamp models have two switch controls to vary the light output. The optional floor stand or wall mounting also makes this the most flexible light box to suit individual needs. Treatment time is around the half an hour mark for the Diamond 3. Perfect if you're busy!  The dimensions are the same as the Diamond 4 model but the Diamond 3 has 3 lights housed within the casing unlike the Diamond 4 which houses 4 lights.

Light levels determine the sleep / wake cycles of both animals and humans. The desire to sleep is brought on by the secretion of Melatonin, and the bright natural light or the light from SAD light therapy lamp light boxes significantly reduces Melatonin, greatly improving our energy levels. Typical symptoms of Seasonal Affective Disorder S.A.D are depression, lethargy, anxiety, craving, social problems, sleep problems and loss of libido. These symptoms can be commonly resolved through the use of the Diamond 3 s.a.d light therapy light box lamp.
