About This eBook
I wrote this little book for the worldwide web, so that people in need could learn how to use light treatment. Much of the book is written in the same tone and language with which I explain light treatment to my patients. I offer opinions and guidance even where the scientific proof is incomplete. People want a doctor’s best advice, even when we are not certain of everything.
This is not intended to be a scientific article, but it may be useful to physicians who want to learn more about light treatment and how to use it. For physicians and others who want more scientific facts, I have included a large number of scientific references without attempting to document every opinion. This is my advice, so not every doctor will agree with everything. You can find many of the articles referenced at a medical library or by searching the web through the National Institutes of Health’s PubMed service.
You may make printed or electronic copies of this book for yourself or to give to family or friends without charge. I would be happy if this book can help lots of people.
