infrared light body bed therapy
Red and Near Infrared Light
The high energy photons from gamma rays, X-rays, and UV rays tend to ionize matter and damage tissue. On the other hand, red (visible) and near infrared (invisible) light have therapeutic benefits, and it is this light that is most found in low level laser & LED lights. The visible light ranges, while quite beneficial, are limited by their shallow penetration of one to three millimetres. The invisible or Infrared light body bed therapy range penetrates much deeper. Research documents infrared penetrations from ten to 15 mm, but clinical results indicate that the infrared beam penetrates eight to ten centimetres.
However, when soliton waves (a self-reinforcing solitary wave caused by nonlinear effects in the medium) are used, energy is able to penetrate deeper into the body without changing or losing its wave form or the information it carries. This process enables LED’s of Infrared light body bed therapy to carry electrons throughout the body to restore damaged cells. Both coherent and non-coherent light with the same wavelength, intensity and dose provide the same biological response. What is more important for cell receptivity for healing is monochromatic light, or single colour light.
What light therapy does.
Worldwide studies have shown that laser & LED energy is accumulative as well as cascading and reduces pain and inflammation via:
1. Bio-stimulation and photo-stimulation;
2. Endogenous opiate production;
3. Slowing sensory nerve production;
4. Restoring cellular resonant energy;
Osmosis dictates that no nutrient can transfer across the depolarized membrane of an injured cell. One of the most important functions of Light body bed therapy is to re-polarize sick and injured cellular membranes. This allows for essential nutrients to transfer from the blood into the cell. In summary, outside light energy impacts in the respiratory chain within cellular mitochondria.
LED photons from Light body bed therapy are taken up and transformed into cellular energy within the mitochondria when there is a deficiency. This added energy causes therapeutic change. Research has shown that Light body bed therapy can increase cellular ATP (body fuel) by as much as 150%. Light seems to be a primary intervention, upon which secondary ones, such as nutrition, depend! Light therapy has no effect on normal tissue. Photons are only taken up by cells that need them. However, caution should be used not to overuse low level laser light.
Over-stimulation, whilst not having the potential to cause harm, can undo the good that the correct dose would have achieved. Excessive bio-stimulation is not beneficial. Kinesiology, or muscle testing, is an excellent way of determining how much the body requires. Another way, if pain is involved, is to note improvement in pain level as a guide to dosage.
