People have been using light therapy to heal since the beginning of time
Healing with light has a long history. In ancient Egypt, people journeyed to temples devoted to the healing power of sunlight. A Nobel Prize was awarded to Niels Ryberg Finsen, who successfully treated smallpox and lupus outbreaks with photonic red light therapy in the late 1890s. More recently, advancements in technology have allowed leading scientists and physicians to use photonic light therapy in practical health applications. NASA uses the technology in zero gravity to expedite the wound healing process for astronauts. Now, you can use this technology in your home.
We are here to help you understand the science, that is going to give you and your pet a healthier, happier, pain-free life.
How Does Photonic Health Red Light Therapy Work? What exactly is happening when you illuminate the body with the Photonic Health Standard Light, Pro Gen II, Standard Pad System, or Professional Pad System? This is a concept that is applied to the treatment and management of any type of imbalance, malady, disease or stressor that can be experienced by our clients. When applied correctly, it can help attain optimal health and treat illness.
Each Photonic Health light has a wavelength of 660nm. This is the strength of the light to penetrate the skin and reach the deeper tissue layers. When the light is illuminating the tissues, it is being absorbed by the cells, ALL types of cells. The cells in our body, as well as stem cells, have functioning mitochondria. Mitochondria is the powerhouse of the cell as it is responsible for the production of energy, or ATP (adenosine triphosphate). Inside the mitochondria we have an enzyme called cytochrome c oxidase. This is a chromophore (meaning light absorbing molecule). When cytochrome c oxidase is exposed to light, it releases something called nitric oxide. Nitric oxide is a chemical that has a general effect of vasodilation (opening of the blood vessels). By increasing blood flow to any given area of injury or imbalance, the body can heal itself. This can also benefit the absorption and circulation of nutrients, supplements and medications throughout the body.
Another chemical released by the cell when illuminated with Photonic Health red light is ROS (Reactive Oxygen Species). These are chemicals released by a cell to signal the body that the cell is under oxidative stress and needs help from the immune system, as well as providing a chemical buffer around healthy cells to protect them from damage.
By supporting basic physiological processes of normal cell cycling, and their circulation throughout the body, Photonic Health red light can have an effect on a number of specific conditions. It can help maintain normal body processes and cellular turnover to stay healthy and vibrant with regular use. It can help maintain the health and appearance of the skin by increasing the turnover of cells on areas that have been affected by sun damage or acne scarring. Using the pad on large areas of the spine can help calm nerves and decrease pain by increasing blood flow to the nerves so they can heal. The carotid artery and femoral artery are access points to the blood to illuminate the blood cells and prevent platelet aggregation and buildup of plaque. Using Photonic Health red light on the palms of the hands and the soles of the feet can help treat neuropathy because you are dilating the veins, arteries and small capillaries in the foot to improve proprioception. When supporting someone going through cancer therapy, the red light is helping to heal damaged cells and protect healthy cells.
As you can see, this is a broad concept but can be used in each person’s specific situation. Clearly state the general principle of how red light therapy works, and translate it to their own health. This will help create better understanding of the mechanism of treatment and lead to well informed clients.
