A source of hope and help for families battling cognitive decline.

My own experiences with the tragedy of Alzheimer’s disease in my late husband Ed Epstein, prepared me well for facing disappointments about “cures” or even therapies that work for cognitive impairment or dementia. I feel differently about Beacon40 by BRIGHT. Not only is this a promising and non-invasive way to help your brain stay alert and attuned, Beacon40 cheers you with its light.

I am a psychiatrist. I do a lot of work in, what I call, cognitive enhancement, or optimization. Some of it is the prevention of heritable cognitive issues, such as Alzheimer’s. I got the first generation Beacon40 for my mom and aunt. They've been using the lights for a while now, and cognitively they have not declined! For 2 years! It's so encouraging to see what Beacon40 is providing for my family... More time.

Our family has been growing with new grandchildren and it's keeping me busy! I wanted something to make sure I can keep up with them mentally as they grow. I'm using this light to keep my focus and attention sharp and so one day I will still be able to teach my grandchildren the traditions of our family.

Bought the light for my mom who is 73 and has experienced cognitive decline. I let her know about the importance of the light, and we did some research about 40 hz. To see her reaction when I was reading the articles to her made me smile. She uses them every morning and she seems to be sleeping better and feeling better.

My father is a beautiful writer but lately, he's had trouble sleeping and I've even seen a bit of a decline cognitively. It was troubling so I bought Beacon40 for him. We love it! It was so easy to set up. Plus we can adjust the brightness depending on the time of day. It's really so easy and it's setting my mind at ease. And I'm hopeful to see my father continue to write beautiful words with a sharper mind and an ability to focus.

My wife was diagnosed with Early Onset Alzheimer's three years ago. While her symptoms are still comparitively minor to most, her moods can be pretty awful with frequent anger issues and awful verbal fighting, starting out first thing in the mornings. Since the first day of using Beacon40, there was a dramatic shift. She loves having it on next to her in our living room while watching TV. She began counting down the days that we had not had an argument and is acutely aware of its benefits. She is simply happier. This is not a paid review or something made up. Beacon40 works.

Types of Light Therapy and What Is Right For You

Although light therapy may feel like a new term, it is not a new form of treatment. Have you ever noticed how good you feel when the sun is shining? A healthy body requires regular exposure to light which is the simplest form of light therapy, for the production of Vitamin D. The earliest history of scientific light therapy to date is from Dr. Niels Ryberg Finsen who suffered from a rare disease that became responsible for his investigations on the role of light on the human body. He realized that the sun made his disease better and his studies led him to discover light therapy and its effect on inflammation.
