Benefits of Photon Light
In recent years the application of low-level light therapy has become a driving force in many different areas of medical healing. The applications are constantly being studied to see what other benefits can be extracted from light treatment. Different body tissues absorb energy from different wavelengths of light energy. Unlike far infrared, photon light therapy has a shorter wavelength so it doesn’t penetrate as deeply. Photon therapy uses visible red lights at a wavelength of 660 nanometers. Red lights are used to treat the surface of the skin. When photons touch the skin, the body’s cells absorb energy which is beneficial to the body’s health in a number of ways that are worth looking into.
Photon light requires direct exposure to the skin in order for its full effects to be received. When the photon light is absorbed by the body, it forms into nitric oxide. This stimulates synthesis of adenosine triphosphate (ATP) which is essential for the metabolism of all cellular regeneration. Photon light therapy assists directly with the mitochondria, the part of the cell responsible for generating proteins and collagen. The new cells are able to destroy old cells, assisting even further with detoxification.
The benefits of photon light can enhance the experience you have with other therapies such as PEMF, FIR, and negative ions to promote a better quality of health over time. Photon light is completely noninvasive and will have no adverse effects on your body.
Photon light therapy stimulates your body in a specific way that medication is unable to accomplish. This added benefit gives you more control over your health on a molecular level. Incorporating photon light into your health routine, in addition to FIR and negative ions, will increase your body’s ability to fight back against invasive, harmful agents in your life.
Photon Light for Treating Depression
Mental health remedy is one of the more sought-after topics in health science. The person to cure depression is certainly going to be remembered as a hero. Depression is a severe problem in the world. In America alone, Seasonal Affective Disorder, or SAD (only one form of depression), affects about 6% of the population. There is more of a demand for answers to this growing problem each day. In recent years Photon Light has been studied for its effects on the brain, more specifically depression. It has been linked to signs of improvement in several clinical studies. In a study of 10 students, doctors found that after exposure to light treatment to the head 6 out of the 10 had experienced a reduction on the Hamilton Depression rating scale. Additionally, 7 out of the 10 students experienced a reduction on the Hamilton Anxiety rating scale. The doctors found the best results were achieved after a two week period of treatment. In another study, 20 patients with SAD were treated with 2 hour light therapy sessions involving red and green light. The conclusion stated that while both were able to yield positive improvements, the green light had a greater effect when it comes to lowering the grade on the Hamilton Depression rating scale. These trial results speak to the potential of photon light when it comes to dealing with depression. The positive response achieved from the experiments is a hopeful sign to the improvement of understanding and treating mental health. (1,2)
Improves Motor Function and Nerve Regeneration
There has been a multitude of studies conducted using animal subjects in order to test the benefits of light therapy under more adverse conditions. One, in particular, tested the ability to improve motor function in rabbits that have recently suffered a stroke. They found that light therapy administered six hours after a stroke yield promising improvements in motor functions. They determined that this finding was something that should be further studied in clinical trials. This suggests that the benefit of using photon light to improve motor function is promising. Light therapy is being studied constantly for its regenerative abilities, not just in motor function, but nerves as well. There have been studies using rats to test the stimulation of nerve regeneration in facial tissue and damaged spinal cords. Both tests showed positive results and further the discussion on the healing qualities offered by photon light therapy. (3,4)
Photon Light Promotes Better Wound Healing
Additional animal studies have lead to research findings that suggest photon light has the ability aid and promote better wound healing for the body. Light therapy has proven to improve the wound healing abilities in both mice and rats that have diabetes, a disease commonly associated with having a slower rate of wound healing. As a result of photon light, many patients have been reported to have an increase in collagen, a protein found in skin that is vital for regeneration, after two months. The ability to stimulate cells allows for photon light to promote better healing and skin conditions of the body. The progress being made in research of wound healing with photon light suggest that there are further discoveries to be made to better use light therapy in this way. (5,6)
Photon Light Improves Skin and Acne
The most common and widely accepted science using photon light to this day is in the skincare field. Since light therapy affects your cells on a molecular level, it has the ability to make them react in a way that affects your complexion and surface level skin. As a result, there has been a lot of progress in showing the benefits of photon light for improving acne and the overall quality of your skin. In a study of patients with acne vulgaris, results showed that 85% of subject reported a reduction of at least 50% of lesions after just two months. In roughly 20% of these cases, acne eradication reached levels of 90% and after a three month period, complete clearing of the acne ranged around 70-80%. There was a nonresponsive rate of about 20%. Photon light can penetrate deeply into your cells and enact a change from the inside out, resulting in a noticeable improvement of complexion. (7)
