THE SCIENCE OF LIGHT

LLLT or low-level light therapy, is being used with great effect in many countries around the world.  Whilst the science is not new – Egyptians were known to use 'solar therapy', and UV therapy won Nils Finsen a Nobel prize in 1904 – we are privileged to now have access to vast amounts of scientific data that supports its use and shows its significant and very exciting healing potential.

NASA has conducted many studies in addition to using Infrared LED technology and have found it increases in growth of 155-171% of normal human epithelial cells. Wound size decreased up to 36% in conjunction with HBO in ischemic rat models. LED produced improvement of greater than 40% in musculoskeletal training injuries in Navy SEAL team members, and decreased wound healing time in crew members aboard a U.S. Naval submarine. LED produced a 47% reduction in pain of children suffering from oral mucositis. (Mol Vis. 2015; 21: 883–892. Published online 2015 Aug 21.   PMCID: PMC4544713) 

Scientific studies have found that red light spectrums and near-infrared spectrums trigger a natural chemical reaction in living cells. As near-infrared light penetrates deeper into the body than visible red light, a vast amount of clinical studies have been conducted into its therapeutic benefits.

Blue light has been used for decades to treat bacteria and fungus. Mild-to-moderate inflammatory acne can be reduced in number of acne lesions significantly, while reducing future outbreaks. Candida, Acne, Staphylococcus aureus, shingles, and fungal nail infections can all be treated using blue light.

  • Red Light:  660nm
 
  • Visible red light penetrates through the epidermis and into muscle. The cellular response created by this absorption of light is to accelerate the production of elastin and collagen, reducing fine lines and the signs of aging. Open wounds and skin conditions improve dramatically, while scar tissue is reduced. Accelerated healing occurs, along with an improvement in circulation and the lymphatic system. Ideal for athletes who suffer from muscle fatigue and injuries.

When placed over a major artery (such as the one beneath our naval), our white cell count (Leukocytes) increases as our blood passes through the light. At the onset of an illness boost the immune system by performing treatments tim several times within a 24 hour period, encouraging our bodies to fight viruses, bacterial infection and illness before they take hold.

 

  • Near-Infrared Light:  850nm

 

Near-infrared light penetrates much deeper into the body, and is converted into energy. Energy is stored within our Mitochondria cells. These cells are contained within all living cells, often in large quantities, they are able to detect dysfunction, and with energy, are able to multiply at a rapid pace, accelerating healing, reducing inflammation and relieving pain. This natural chemical reaction, allows our body to fight infection, inflammation, disease and injury. 

Reports found show therapeutic benefits to virtually every ailment encountered. From bumps and bruises, to chronic back pain, foot pain, external and internal infection, arthritis, RSI, carpel tunnel, bursitis, tooth infection and ulcers.

 

  • Blue Light:  470nm
 
Blue light spectrum has been used for many decades to kill bacteria and fungus. Scientific studies have shown many conditions such as acne, candida, staphylococcus, infections, and skin conditions can benefit greatly from the use of 470nm blue light, with no adverse side effects to the treatments area. Recent studies have indicated blue light is best to be used in daytime to ensure sleep patterns are not interrupted. 
Recent studies have found the combination of visible red light and blue light to resonate with cells, decreasing inflammation, accelerating wound restoration, destroying bacterial and fungal infections, while reducing pain.

 

Scientific Studies:

NASA have conducted many clinical studies into this technology, and have found that laser and LED both provide therapeutic benefits. LED however is more affordable and able to be used within the home.

 

Studies show 630 nanometers to 910 nanometers to provide therapeutic benefits.  660nm has been heavily studied with very positive results for surface injuries and ailments, while 830 - 860nm provides the greatest depth of penetration into joints and ligaments. 

Dr Nogier's studies found the effect of particularly fast pulse rates to have specific chemical reactions on cells, as detailed below. Three of these pulse rates have been selected for our Custom Controller, in addition to 40 pulses per second, which is only just visible to the naked eye on our beauty Patch.

 

examples of Dr Nogier frequencies: 

(Frequency A, 294 Hz.) For tissue of ectodermal origin, such as body openings, skin and nerve. Field applications include wounds, eye injuries and after surgery. Setting 3 tends to tone tissue while minimizing the chance of haemorrhaging fresh wounds or recent surgical sites. It is also good for the treatment of acupuncture and trigger points, corneal ulcers and ulcerated mucous membranes. This is called the universal frequency in acupuncture.

 

(Frequency C, 1174 Hz.) For tissue of mesodermal origin, such as bone, joints, ligament, viscera and tendon. Field experience has shown setting 5 to be especially good for tendon and ligament injuries when used with 4 and 2. It also helps in relaxing large muscle groups.

 

(Frequency E, 4698 Hz.) For pain control, primarily when C nerve fibers are transmitting to dorsal root ganglia and when involvement of neurotransmitters is of physiological importance. Field experience shows 7 to help suppress pain and to sedate acupuncture and trigger points and aid in diminishing excess calcification associated with chips, spurs and arthritic conditions.
