Professional Endorsements

Sunbox has received endorsements from medical professionals, the press, and more.

In the late 80’s, the Sunbox Company gave me a Sunray to loan to my patients. I loaned it to many, most of whom found it helpful, and bought their own Sunrays. In between loans to patients, I used it myself. My husband liked it, too.

Light therapy is much more effective if started before symptoms recur, so the ideal time for prevention is to start in mid August. After retirement, I have used the Sunray year round, because after taking it out in mid March, I would forget to turn it back on in Mid August.

In the summer, the sun shines in early, then birds start to chirp, signaling my brain stem to start bringing my brain online. My programs start opening and by the time the alarm goes off, I’m energized and ready to function.

I simulate that process with my Sunray. It sits at the head of my bed with the timer set to go on from 5:30-7:30a. My radio goes on at 6:00a for some auditory stimulus, followed by a buzzer alarm at 6:30a. The Sunray stays on while I get dressed. For the first week, the bright light woke my husband and I, but after that, we slept through it, waking gently until we were fully awake by the time we had to get up.

Waking to a dark room in the winter is so depleting. All I want to do is to stay in bed. Waking to a bright summer dawn Is so refreshing and nothing does summer dawn like the Sunray.

This Sunray unit was used pretty much continuously for 30 years. I recall only replacing the bulbs once, or maybe twice. A few mos ago, my son was feeling sluggish and unmotivated. I gave the Sunray to him to use in the same way and he found it very helpful from the start. I plan to replace those older bulbs since they are slightly less intense than they were. I got the Sunbox Jr, for myself, but it just doesn’t hold a candle to the Sunray.

My daughter realized she has been having seasonal depression symptoms.  After researching the latest in the therapeutic lighting industry, I found no other company that made a unit comparable to the Sunray II. I found an LED unit that was comparable, but It hasn’t been around for 30 yrs and I know what a Sunray can do.

So I bought my daughter a Sunray II. I am going to buy myself a new Sunray II, soon.

Sunrays do cost more than a lot of units, but today’s price with shipping, of $400 spread over 10 yrs, is only a $40 per year. That’s about the price of a tank of gas. If it lasts 30 yrs, like mine, that’s only $14 per year. I can’t imagine living where the winter sunrise is at 7:30a without my Sunray.

Hello SunBox Co:
I am a board certified psychiatrist, in practice for more than 30 years. I have owned and recommended light boxes from the Sunbox company for years, based on my own independent research, and feedback from my patients.
In my opinion, the new LED SunUp lamp is the best “light box” ever. In the morning, I tip the flexible neck up, so that it shines on my face, and in the afternoon, I use it as a light that makes reading and working at my computer much easier.

Thank you!

Hello SunBox,

I have had one of your lights, the SunSation, for a few years now. It is very helpful with my S.A.D.and depression and I use it daily.
Sadly I dropped it and broke the bulb last week. I called your office and ordered a new bulb. The service was exceptional and I received the bulb in two days.
I count on this product as it was “prescribed” by my Psychiatrist as an alternative to another medication for treating depression and difficult cycling (I am bipolar).
In the beginning I fought the inconvenience of waking up an extra 30 minutes every day but once I started doing so I noticed a drastic change in my mental health and well being.

The only thing better than your great product was the exceptional service I received.
It was challenging replacing the bulb since the old one was disconnected, but when I called your office Nicole was very patient and tried to guide me through the “operation” and when
she couldn’t help me fully she referred me to Wes who also was very patient and helped me with everything including staying on the phone with me as I put the screws back in
and re-mounted it to the stand.

I would highly recommend your SunBox products to others and let them rest assured that you stand by your products so well

Dear SunBox Company:

Have been singing your praises for years now; went on to Naomi Judd’s FB page and left a comment on hers and Ashley’s FB page about The SunBox Company and how your light box continues to bring me up and out of suicidal depression.  Can’t tell y’all enough how much your company and product means so very much to me!
I shared that other boxes (companies) simply will not lift person out of suicidal ideation as your box (with new tubes/bulbs) has done for me!  However, I have been told by a nurse here locally that her box (NOT a SunBox box) is great for growing plants, and nothing else!
Other light box companies light boxes are very good for growing plants and not helpful with daily usage especially through winter months (in my case gets worse in winter months) of lifting person(s) out of extreme suicidal depression as your GREAT light box does for me daily again especially through winter months!  I would not be here without The SunBox Company’s light box. And that’s a fact!
With great gratitude and so much thankfulness Merry Christmas!

Dear Neal:

There are no words to express my gratitude to SunBox. I am fully and totally out of my depression. I thank God for hearing my cries to help me. I am completely up and out of my depression. I can’t believe it Neal. The SunBox light has lifted me from this suicidal, black hole depression I was in. Through God and your magnificent company I am healed.

Thank you with great Agape Love,

Peg

Dear SunBox Company, My patients love you! Thanks for what you do! Best, Janet L, Ph.D.

I have used light boxes from the SunBox Company and referred patients there since the mid 1980s. I have confidence in the effectiveness of SunBox products and my patients have been very satisfied with their customer service. I particularly favor the SunSquare because it is large, powerful and can be used in a variety of ways.

The loan program has been an indispensable part of my practice for many years. It allows me and my patient to test the utility of therapeutic light treatment without the expense of purchasing a product the patient may not benefit from or a model they don’t like.

As a naturopathic sleep specialist I regularly recommend your products to patients, and have participated in your loaner program.
