Seasonal Affective Disorder: Emerging Research and Treatment


Novel and integrative approaches to depression, inflammation, and light-dark cycles reveal an interactive effect with startling implications for health, well-being, and longevity. We have biological clocks in our brains and bodies. Knowing how these clocks function and how they impact our health points us to powerful methods for healing.

This class examines:

  • chronobiology, the science of body rhythms and their relationship to time
  • why our brain and body rhythms matter- and what we can do to restore them
  • new avenues in treatment, including chrono-therapy, chrono-pharmacology, and chrono-nutrition


This Masterclass focuses on what you need to know, how to prepare (and when preparation is effective), and keystone habits that will help you in the difficult months of winter.

Participants will be able to discuss chronobiology and its importance in health, and understand several tools to alleviate the symptoms of Seasonal Affective Disorder.
