Introduction
Safe and Effective
According to independent ocular safety testing, BLUEWAVE light is safe when following
the recommended usage guidelines. BLUEWAVE technology in your goLITE BLU passes
ICNRIP/ACGIH threshold value limits at only 15% (light energy exceeding 100% is
considered potentially hazardous). The effectiveness of the type of light in BLUEWAVE has
been researched and advocated by leading medical universities. For more information,
visit www.LightTherapy.com.
Understanding Light, Health, and Circadian Rhythms
The human body uses light cues, such as those provided by the sun, to time certain
internal functions. Properly timed rhythms regulate mood, sleep, energy, appetite, and
digestion. These daily internal cycles, called circadian rhythms, sometimes fall out of sync,
resulting in an unregulated body clock.
Unfortunately, modern living has dramatically altered nature’s cues. A modern day no
longer starts at the crack of dawn and ends at 8:00 p.m. Workdays are getting longer and
many people face shift work schedules. Additionally, the advent of electric lighting allows
social gatherings and personal activities to extend well into the night. These factors have
diminished the body’s natural ability to regulate the body clock.
6
When our circadian rhythm becomes imbalanced, the body produces the wrong
hormones, chemicals, and neurotransmitters at the wrong time of the day. The results
range from feelings of sadness to sleeplessness to lack of energy. Many people suffer from
a loss of energy and mood that can last for a short period of time to more than a couple of
weeks. For many, these feelings come on stronger in the winter and in darker climates.
Introduction
Circadian Rhythm Imbalance
An imbalance in circadian rhythms contributes to the following:
• Winter blues
• Feelings of sadness
• Jet lag
• Lack of concentration
• Loss of appetite
• Lack of energy (especially in the winter)
• Sleeplessness
• Mood swings
• Irritability
Restored Balance with BLUEWAVE Technology
BLUEWAVE technology helps shift circadian rhythms back to their normal pattern by
delivering a specifically engineered wavelength, color, and intensity of light that stimulates
the production of key substances triggered by the brain. BLUEWAVE naturally affects the
body by shifting the body clock to its correct timing, causing the proper signals to be
produced at the right time of day.

Plugging In Your goLITE BLU
Your goLITE BLU comes with a 9V AC/DC adapter with US-style prongs. Your adapter
can operate on AC power ranging from 100–240 volts for usage worldwide. Use the
enclosed adapter only. For safety and proper operation of your goLITE BLU, never use an
unapproved adapter.
Using Your goLITE
Using Your goLITE BLU
Charging Instructions
IMPORTANT: Charge your goLITE BLU for at least 8 hours before initial use.
The goLITE BLU contains an internal Lithium-Ion battery pack. To charge your goLITE BLU,
connect your AC/DC adapter to a wall outlet and plug the goLITE BLU into the adapter. The
battery display icon will show the outline only. As the battery charges, the four bars will
blink one by one and fill in as the charge increases. Once the battery is charged, the battery
icon will switch to a steady display. Charge your goLITE BLU for at least 8 hours before
initial use. Subsequent charges should be complete in three to four hours. A single charge
should last for three to five treatment sessions.
WARNING: Do not incinerate, disassemble, or expose to high temperatures (above
60° C/140° F). Internal batteries may overheat causing fire, or bursting. Use the specified
AC/DC adapter only.
9
Using Your goLITE
Positioning Your goLITE BLU
Use the goLITE BLU at a slight angle to your face (see figure 1). It is not necessary to look
directly into the light.
•For best results, place the goLITE BLU approximately 20–30
inches from your eyes. Allow the light to bathe your face from
the side.
• You can read, eat, work at the computer, watch TV, put on
makeup, or exercise while using your goLITE BLU.
• Use your goLITE BLU in a well-lit room to minimize eyestrain.
• For best results, place the goLITE BLU near you at eye level so it
shines directly into your eyes.
Figure 1
• The proper response to light therapy occurs through the retina of the eyes, not
through the skin. However, you do not need to stare at the light. If you are in front
of the goLITE BLU and position it close enough, only an occasional glance is needed
achieve the maximum benefits.
Your Eyes Should Be Open for Optimal Results
The hormonal response works through the eyes, not the skin. This is not a tanning light.
In fact, our BLUEWAVE Technology creates specific wavelengths that produce a circadian
response while eliminating UV hazards and minimizing eyestrain.

Suggested Usage
When to Use Your goLITE BLU
Because an imbalance in circadian rhythm affects everybody differently, understanding
how it affects you is critical to feeling better. Knowing what time to use the goLITE BLU can
mean the difference between responding in just a few days instead of weeks, or perhaps
not responding at all. Follow these guidelines to understand how light affects your body
clock and when to use the goLITE BLU for the best results.
Usage Duration and Intensity
Most people get beneficial results from fifteen to thirty minutes of usage each day. You can
start using your goLITE BLU at 50% intensity and increase the level of light if you feel like
your body is not responding within a week of beginning light therapy.
Time of Day
If you find it difficult getting up each day without an alarm clock or you are sleeping in, you
need morning light. Use the goLITE BLU within the first hour or two after waking.
If you find it difficult staying awake in the late evening and wake up too early in the
morning, you need evening light. Use the goLITE BLU before the onset of drowsiness.
14
If you don’t notice a shifted circadian rhythm, use the goLITE BLU when you wake up in the
morning for fifteen to thirty minutes and then again in the evening for approximately the same
amount of time. Place the goLITE BLU further away from you during the evening treatment.
This will keep your body clock from confusing the stronger morning signal with evening
time. Don’t use the goLITE BLU within two hours of bedtime. The goLITE BLU suppresses the
nighttime hormones for at least two hours, and you may not be able to fall asleep.
Use the following techniques to adjust your circadian rhythm to your work shift.
Beginning a Night-shift Schedule
Many people benefit from receiving a 30-minute burst of light before work and then 15
minutes of light every three hours during work. This not only increases alertness and
performance, but shifts the body clock as well. Within three days, your body clock will have
changed to a night-shift schedule. Taking time-release melatonin upon arriving home after
work may help accelerate the shifting of your body clock. After the second day, melatonin
should not be necessary, and your body clock will have adapted to the new schedule.
Suggested Usage
Shift Work
Note: When coming off of night-shift work, it is important to wear sunglasses and avoid any
bright light while going home. You should go to sleep as soon as possible after leaving work.
Returning to a Day-shift Schedule
On the day your night shift ends, continue to wear sunglasses and avoid bright light in the
morning hours. Do not take melatonin in the morning. Use your goLITE BLU for 30 minutes
at about midday. On the first day, you may take an afternoon nap if you are having trouble
staying awake. Go to bed at your normal evening bedtime.
You may wish to use time-release melatonin in the early evening (about 7:00 p.m.) to accelerate
your body clock to a normal schedule. You may want to wait a few hours after waking in the
afternoon or evening before taking melatonin as it may cause drowsiness. This routine should
only need to be repeated once or twice before you achieve a normal sleep/wake schedule.
After the first day, you should use the goLITE BLU each morning as needed for
approximately 15–30 minutes.
15
Suggested Usage

schedules, visit www.LightTherapy.com.
Jet Lag
Rapidly traveling across several time zones creates disharmony between your internal body
clock and the new external time. This not only causes problems with sleeping, but influences
mood and energy as well. Because specialized light is effective for shifting circadian rhythms,
your goLITE BLU can quickly adjust your rhythm to the new time zone. The best strategy for
combating jet lag is to shift your body clock a day or two before leaving.
Traveling East
Use your goLITE BLU in the morning two to three days before leaving. The number of time
zones traveled corresponds to the hours needed to shift. On the first day, wake up an hour
early and use the goLITE BLU for 30–45 minutes. This will shift your body clock up to three
time zones. The next day(s) you need to awaken a couple of hours earlier and repeat this
process. Taking time-released melatonin in the early evening or late afternoon can also help
accelerate this shift. You should adjust your sleep schedule as described each day. Upon
arrival, wear sunglasses to avoid any sunlight before 10:00 a.m. When returning, use your
goLITE BLU in the evening for a few nights and avoid any morning light (see Traveling West).
Traveling West
16
Use your goLITE BLU in the evening for 30–40 minutes a few days before leaving, and use the
goLITE BLU a couple of hours later each successive day. Each day you use the goLITE BLU, you
shift your internal time up to three hours, and you can increase this shift up to six hours per day
by taking melatonin in the morning. When returning, avoid any bright afternoon and evening
light and be sure to use your goLITE BLU in the morning for a few days (see Traveling East).
FAQ
Frequently Asked Questions
Do I have to take off my glasses when I use the goLITE BLU?
No. This specialized type of light is designed to work with or without glasses. However, you should
not wear tinted glasses or sunglasses when using the goLITE.
Are there any major side effects?
The goLITE BLU is safe when used according to recommendations. There have been some reports of
temporary headaches or nausea. This is usually resolved by sitting further away from the unit.
Can I get sunburn from using the goLITE BLU?
No. While typical fluorescent bulbs produce small amounts of UV light, BLUEWAVE Technology
eliminates all UV light.
I’ve heard that light can be dangerous. Can the goLITE BLU damage my eyes?
The goLITE BLU emits safe levels of blue light, according to current standards. In fact, your goLITE
BLU emits less blue light than other traditional forms of bright light therapy like full-spectrum, 10,000
lux white fluorescent light. However, if you suffer from an eye disease or have a history of eye disease
in your family, you should consult your ophthalmologist before using your goLITE BLU. Also, if you
are experiencing any temporary eye problems, wait until the problems are resolved before using the
goLITE BLU.
When used as directed, all of our light products are free from ultraviolet light risk to the eye and
produce a safe, diffused field of light. Our lights have been tested for ocular safety and have been
used in dozens of government and clinical studies.
As with any bright light source, you should not stare directly into the light. The beneficial reaction
happens when the melanopsin photoreceptors in the eye are stimulated. Since these photoreceptors
lie in the peri­phery of the eye, you will get a much better outcome if you position the goLITE BLU at a
slight angle to your face.
17
FAQ
Should I use the goLITE BLU every day?
You should use the goLITE BLU daily, especially during the winter months. Many people find that they
don’t need the light during the summer. Others use it year-round because they spend most of their time
indoors and don’t typically get the right kind of light signals to regulate circadian rhythms properly.
Can the light cause harm to children or pets?
No. The lights are safe around children and pets. The lights will actually draw many pets to sit by it.
Can I use the goLITE BLU more than once a day?
For most people, it is sufficient to use the goLITE BLU once a day. Keep in mind that using the goLITE
BLU too late in the evening may adversely affect your sleep.
How long do the LEDs last?
Under normal usage, the LEDs are rated for 10,000 hours of use, which at 30 minutes per day all year
round equals over 50 years of life.
What if one or more LEDs stop working prematurely?
In the unlikely event that one or two LEDs fail prematurely, the effectiveness of your goLITE BLU will
not be diminished. You can continue to use your goLITE BLU normally. However, if several LEDs stop
functioning, you should probably have your goLITE BLU repaired to ensure that you are receiving the
correct treatment dosage. For more information, refer to your goLITE BLU warranty card.
What is DEMO on the display screen?
This is the Demonstration mode that is used to display the goLITE BLU at point-of-sale locations.
If your goLITE BLU happens to be in this mode, DEMO will appear on your display screen. You will
not need to be in this mode. While the goLITE BLU is off, press and hold the ON/OFF button for 10
seconds. The goLITE BLU will turn on and the word DEMO will clear from your display screen.
How do I use the reset button?
18
The goLITE has a reset button located in the stand storage cavity on the back of the unit. If the goLITE
locks up or is not working correctly, you can reset the device by inserting the end of a paper clip into
the reset button hole. The goLITE will reset and the memory contents will be cleared.

For transmitters rated at a maximum output power not listed above, the recommended separation distance d in meters (m) can
be estimated using the equation applicable to the frequency of the transmitter, where P is the maximum output power rating
of the transmitter in watts (W) according to the transmitter manufacturer.
Note 1: At 80 MHz and 800 MHz, the separation distance for the higher frequency range applies.
Note 2: These guidelines may not apply in all situations. Electromagnetic propagation is affected by absorption and reflection
from structures, objects, and people.
