Seasonal Affective Disorder as a lack of detox of Poison/"Vitamin A"

If Seasonal Affective Disorder is related to less sunlight during the winter months, what if it ISN'T necessarily from a LACK of Vitamin D production, but RATHER was from an EXCESS of Poison/"Vitamin A" not getting broken down from the sunlight/UVB missing from one's day?
Lo and behold! Remember, retinoic acid and retinoids are terms for Poison/"Vitamin A":
https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/17707566/
"Several studies have shown that the molecular components required for retinoic acid signaling are expressed in the adult brain; the overlap of brain areas implicated in retinoic acid function and stress and depression suggest that retinoids could play a role in affective disorders. This report reviews the evidence in this area and describes several systems that may be targets of retinoic acid and which contribute to the pathophysiology of depression."

"It was found in this same study that photoperiod regulates RALDH in tanycytes as well as RAR/RXR’s in the hypothalamus, therefore showing changes in RA signaling driven by seasonal changes. Given that seasonal affective disorder is a form of depression driven by seasonality there is the potential for RA to influence this disorder.

One particular RA regulated gene in the hypothalamus that may provide a link between RA and depression is corticotrophin-releasing hormone (CRH), a key regulatory factor in the HPA axis which may contribute to HPA axis hyperactivity in depression."

What if I were to tell you I have more research connecting Poison/"Vitamin A" to circadian rhythm problems? Like not being able to fall asleep until later at night? That's not good for you, if you don't understand it yet. Early feedback on the Poison/"Vitamin A" detox shows anxiety and depression going away (this take time) and people starting to find their body is getting sleepy earlier in the night than before, without any changes on their part (this is natural and GOOD).
