Picture of YumaLite
YumaLite Model YL2

SOTA, the new owner of the YumaLite® is proud to offer the health benefits of White and Red light using the modern technology of Light Emitting Diodes (LEDs). The light is applied gently to the eyes by wearing an easy–to–use visor to help balance the effects many feel during times when there is decreased exposure to natural sunlight.

Whether it’s a change of time zones, short daylight hours in winter, working indoors, or working night shifts … lack of exposure to natural light can impact mood and energy levels. YumaLite helps to re–synchronize your body’s internal rhythms, elevate your mood and revitalize your energy.

In addition, the Red LED light further helps to balance the constant blue light we are exposed to from long hours of staring at computer and cell phone screens as well as flat screen TVs. Many forms of artificial white light contain more light in the blue spectrum than the red, causing us to get over–stimulated affecting our circadian rhythms and sleep patterns. The Red light helps to bring balance to the overexposure to blue light, helping to restore our natural circadian rhythms and sleep patterns. Using the YumaLite visor with the Red light, especially in the evening, helps to balance the ill effects from excessive blue light.

YumaLite is a simple and convenient way to bring light into your life — Your Very Own Personal Sunshine.

YumaLite Model YL2 features a built–in 20–minute timer and an improved design for simpler battery replacement and a sturdier headband.

How to use the YumaLite back to top
The YumaLite is an easy–to–use portable visor giving you the choice of White or Red light. The adjustable strap and tilting action of the visor allows the YumaLite to be customized to fit you.

The YumaLite is timed for 20 minutes. It often takes a minimum of 7 days to experience the benefits. Using it in the morning allows you to reap the benefits all day long. For mornings, you may want to use the White light, and for later in the day, the Red light. By using the Red light later in the day, you help to balance the abundance of blue light from computer and cell phone use.

Natural Lightback to top
Enjoying fresh air and sunlight has been recognized for health benefits over the centuries. An important part of treatment at early health spas was exposure to natural sunlight for a period of time each day. If it was cold, patients would be bundled in blankets to sit in the sun, or dressed warmly to walk about, while they exposed their faces to the sun.

Light, especially natural light, is important for our health. When we don’t get enough natural light, the natural cadence of our body clock is interrupted. Our body clock refers to the internal systems in our body that regulate our physical, mental and emotional functions over the course of a day, known as our circadian rhythms. When these internal systems are interrupted, it can affect our energy levels, our mood, our concentration and can lead to sleep disruption, over–eating and weight gain. The effects of reduced natural light can range from mild to severe.

There are many reasons we might not receive adequate light – too much time indoors, shift work, or traveling to other time zones, can deprive us of the light we need in our life. The winter months can also contribute to a lack of natural light – the days are shorter and often darker.

When natural light isn’t available, light from a light source like the YumaLite can help bring the sunshine in. Using the YumaLite to replace the lost light in our life can help keep our body clock working as it should, so that we feel more like we do during the spring and summer seasons.

Red Lightback to top
Many of the electronic devices that we all enjoy using, like computers, cell phones and flat screen TVs, tend to emit light more in the blue spectrum. Over time, overexposure to blue light can cause an imbalance and affect our circadian rhythms. The good news is that by introducing Red light we can offset the imbalance that excessive blue light causes, helping to re–balance our circadian rhythm.

Knowing when to expose yourself to the different colors of light can be helpful. For example, exposure to blue light in the morning is considered beneficial as it helps to wake us up and feel energized. However, if that continues into the evening, our natural body cycles can get interrupted. Red light provides balance to the blue light, as it is almost at the opposite end of the light spectrum. It is beneficial to apply Red light in the evening, to balance the effects of excessive blue light. Red light can help prepare the body for sleep.
