Light is Medicine

LED (Light Emitting Diode) lights are all the craze as of late, and are getting used to deal with quite a few well being points. And though they’re helpful as you’ll learn under, a phrase of warning must be provided right here as a result of NOT all the merchandise which can be being produced and offered as therapeutic… actually are. Lots of the ‘knock off’ merchandise are nothing greater than what many would contemplate to be only a ‘warmth lamp’. Because it is with most merchandise there are a number of ranges of high quality. The upper high quality merchandise use the costlier elements, that are calibrated and assured to provide gentle within the therapeutic ranges you might be about to examine. So, with that stated… caveat emptor (Let the client beware).

The human physique is made up of trillions of dwelling cells. What is actually wonderful is that our cells have been confirmed to react to an exterior stimuli equivalent to that offered by laser gentle. The frequencies which can be produced by an LED board, and or a ‘directed’ tremendous level laser gentle, can stimulate our cell’s metabolism and their inner environments. LED’s emit gentle that is made up of what are referred to as photons, which make up a beam of sunshine that enters the tissue by facilitating modifications in our cells membranes polarity. This intracellular motion promotes the repolarization of sick or injured cells again to their regular state. This is a sophisticated idea to understand, however in brief… these lights produce adverse ions, which have been proven to have a really optimistic have an effect on on the physique.

The impact of daylight on our our bodies has been identified for a few years. We basically developed beneath daylight, though lately we’ve been uncovered to much less due to pores and skin most cancers scare techniques. Nevertheless that is the topic of one other article. The underside line for this text is that the wavelengths produced by the solar (UV-C [100-280 nm], UV-B [280-320nm] and UV-A [320-400nm]) are ultraviolet gentle with very excessive frequencies. It is not vital that you recognize all the particulars relating to these frequencies aside from to say that the shorter the wavelength, the larger the vitality per photon (which supplies much less penetration by way of the organic tissue). However; the longer the wavelength, the much less vitality the sunshine produces, and the deeper the penetration into the physique. It is a well-known undeniable fact that ultraviolet rays C & B are primarily absorbed within the higher layers of the pores and skin, and the UV-A frequencies move by way of to the layers proper under the floor. What you could have simply learn is the type of data that most individuals get uncovered to by way of the information and different printed materials, relating to UV’s adverse impact on our pores and skin. VERY IMPORTANT: The above data shouldn’t be confused with, and doesn’t apply to these frequencies that fall into the close to, center and much infrared classes, that are helpful in nature. All that issues in relation to the UV frequencies is that the larger the vitality produced, the larger likelihood there is for potential hurt to the pores and skin over time.

All the data relating to gentle (particularly what you could have simply learn above relating to UV gentle) is not as dangerous as some folks make it out to be. How your physique handles gentle (particularly that within the UV vary) on all ranges will depend on quite a few elements, together with your dietary standing. Sure varieties of gentle offered at sure frequencies have been used therapeutically for over 4000 years in nations like China, Egypt and India. For instance, they knew again in these days that publicity to crimson gentle would enhance blood movement into the world uncovered. A robust modern-day testimonial for using gentle and its therapeutic worth is using ‘blue’ gentle to deal with new child infants with jaundice. This remedy has been utilized in mainstream hospitals for a few years with success. Way back to the late 19th century researchers Edwin Babbitt and Kate Baldwin discovered that crimson gentle may very well be used to stop scaring, and even again then it was discovered that gentle (in sure frequency ranges) might pace up the therapeutic course of.

It is completely legal that this line of analysis has not been pursued extra vigorously. Within the early 1960s researchers equivalent to Liverman confirmed the position of crimson, close to infrared and much infrared gentle might management progress, reproductive and therapeutic processes. Moreover throughout that very same time interval Wurtman, Axelrod and Phillips found that melatonin’s manufacturing and launch is managed by gentle. And at last within the 1970s, researchers over in Europe and Russia confirmed that using lasers and crimson gentle may very well be used clinically to enhance the therapeutic of continual ulcers and different gaping wounds, which didn’t reply to typical remedies of the day.

The above has solely been a cursory dialogue relating to the advantages of ‘frequencies’ within the vary of the infrared spectrum. We might go a lot deeper into this topic by discussing different therapeutic frequencies, equivalent to these found by Dr Paul Nogier again within the 1970s. The Nogier frequencies are routinely utilized in medical follow; and have been proven to be preferentially utilized by the physique therapeutically. Because it is with all frequencies, that which is inside shut proximity and is uncovered to what ever is producing frequencies, will start to vibrate in the identical method. With this in thoughts, anybody that is uncovered to the seven elementary frequencies found by Dr. Nogier, will start to resonate with them. They exert therapeutic properties which can be in lots of circumstances more practical than many remedies at the moment provided by what is usually referred to as ‘Most important Stream’ medication.

These frequencies are:

Frequencies (Hz) U – 1.14

A – 2.28

B – 4.56

C – 9.125

D – 18.25

E – 36.5

F – 73

G – 146

NOTE: The U frequency is the so-called “common” frequency. These frequencies are provided as harmonics [is a component frequency of the signal that is a number multiple of the base frequency] at totally different ranges of the bottom frequency in lots of purposes. Under is checklist of the widespread harmonics of the elemental Nogier frequencies.

Frequencies Worth (Hz)

A – 292

B – 584

C – 1168

D – 2336

E – 4672

F – 73

G – 146

As acknowledged it has been proven that the physique and its varied methods, will be activated by way of using gentle within the close to by way of the far infrared frequencies. One instance can be, (and there is concrete proof exhibiting this) that seen gentle (400-700nm) has a direct impact on the immune system. It is additionally a widely known undeniable fact that varied hormonal methods within the physique react on to gentle publicity, for instance the conversion of sure varieties of ldl cholesterol to vitamin D. There are particular advantages to working with gentle that has longer wavelengths. Working with particular frequencies close to infrared (NIR, 600-800nm) vary can penetrate the pores and skin as much as just a little over 9 inches; which promotes wound therapeutic and human tissue progress!

It’s possible you’ll marvel how this all works within the physique. It seems that Pink and NIR gentle that penetrates the pores and skin (relying on the depth of penetration), can stimulate cell proliferation of keratinocytes (that are the foremost constituents of pores and skin), and fibroblasts (that are varieties of cells that synthesize the extracellular matrix and collagen) by way of the induction of progress elements. Once more as acknowledged (this cannot be repeated sufficient), all of this happens on account of a rise within the switch of electrons (adverse ions) into sure cells, all of that are necessary for the manufacturing of vitality and cell progress. As well as close to infrared and different infrared wavelength lights have been used for ache administration as properly. Transcutaneous (throughout the pores and skin) publicity to infrared gentle stimulates DNA synthesis within the human immune system, which reduces the pro-inflammatory chemical substances produced within the blood in response to a wound or illness state.

At this time these lights are getting used for all types of well being associated points. Their makes use of embody, however usually are not restricted to points equivalent to recovering from beauty surgical procedure, to the remedy and therapeutic of gaping wounds that might not different smart heal, to pores and skin ulcers, restoration from coronary heart assaults to sports activities accidents. Essentially the most thrilling latest information relating to using the crimson and infrared lights is their potential use in stimulating the regrowth of nerve cells (e.g. the optic nerve and broken tissues of the retina). Although there are numerous firms that promote these devises, I’m solely conscious of two that truly promote items that produce the frequencies that they are saying their items do. One firm is in Canada, they’re SOTA devices ( ) and the Bioresonance Company in England ( ). There could also be others however sadly it takes some time to weed by way of and discover these which can be legit, and there simply aren’t sufficient hours within the day.
