What light bulbs offer the closest thing to sunlight?

I am vitamin D deficient and need to do light therapy.

A full spectrum light is the closest thing that we have to sunlight. You can purchase full spectrum bulbs from plant stores, pet stores and some mail order companies that market full spectrum. There are some incandescent bulbs that are sold as full spectrum, but they are merely coated to absorb the yellow, so beware of false advertisements.

You will need to get special lights for this. You should talk to your doctor, they will be able to help you.
