A Recent Study Has Proposed That Light Therapy May be Beneficial in Lessening Certain Signs of Dementia.
Dementia is a debilitating condition that affects millions of people around the globe. Its effects are characterized by a decrease in cognitive functions, including memory, language, judgment, and reasoning. Additionally, Behavioral and Psychological Symptoms of Dementia (BPSD) are frequently seen and can involve agitation, aggression, apathy, psychosis, continual questioning, wandering, and other inappropriate behaviors.While there is no cure for dementia, researchers are exploring non-pharmacological interventions that may help alleviate symptoms and improve the quality of life for dementia patients. An intervention of this sort is light therapy, also known as phototherapy.
