    Default Seeing the light: Shedding full-spectrum light on ADHD

    08/11/2011
    Dr. Jonathan Wright


    Question: I have read a good amount of your advice on managing ADHD with nutrition. Do you have any other advice?

    Dr. Wright: One of the most surprising ways to help reverse ADHD is actually the simplest--and it's something you can do on your own at home right away. All it involves is changing light bulbs.

    John Ott pioneered this approach as part of his research into the effects of full-spectrum lighting. Unlike "regular" fluorescent lighting, "full-spectrum light" is the spectrum of electromagnetic radiation that exactly matches sunlight.
    In one of Ott's experiments, he outfitted an elementary school classroom with a dual lighting system: regular fluorescent tubes and full-spectrum fluorescent tubes. The lighting was arranged so that either the regular or the full-spectrum lighting could be turned on and off without any notable change in brightness over-all. Neither the teacher nor the children were aware which lighting system was on or when.

    John Ott's books have been out of print for some time, unless some smart publisher has reprinted them. The first one was the best, overall, in case anyone can find one of these as a used book.

    I detest fluorescent lights. All the years I went to school I wished teachers would just let us work with the natural light from the windows. Even as an employee if I were the only person in the office I would turn out the lights and open the windows. I don't understand why other people insist on turning them on.

    I wonder if some of this is reacting to EMF fields?

    I think so. I read somewhere a few years ago about the difference in the oscillation between fluorescent light and natural light and effects it has on people. I tried to find it but couldn't. The Earth has a natural frequency of 8 Hz and we resonate with that frequency. I think humans disregard this.

    My bad! Amazon has a few of John Nash Ott's books, including Health and Light. The others seem to be extremely expensive, probably because they would be the original editions, far beyond my price range. I used to have all of them, but lent them to a friend... Same old long sad story.
