“But the ear can’t sense light”
Yes, this is correct. However, the ear organ itself is not the target for light treatment. The ear canal is simply a convenient passageway, which enables the device to channel light to photosensitive areas of the brain. This activates the brain and increases signaling and hormonal control, which has an uplifting effect on our mood, energy level and cognitive performance. The ear canal is the important part, not the ear organ itself.
“The brain can’t sense light” No, this is not correct. Receptor proteins that are sensitive to visible light were first discovered in the human eye as recently as 1998, and their role in circadian rhythm was understood by 2000. The same proteins were discovered for the first time in the human brain at Oulu University in Finland in 2009-2010. These visible light-sensing proteins (melanopsin and encephalopsin) are now known to help the body and mind respond to light and darkness.
The SummerLight Headset is the best portable Light Therapy solution (it allows the user to do other things and move around instead of staying in one spot to have the treatment) and due to the very small size this product is easy to pack for world travels.
