What is Light Therapy?

PhotoMedicine, often termed photo therapy, is a paradigm shift in modern medicine for in addition to drugs and surgery doctors around the world are now using photo therapy to help the body's cells to heal themselves. Because phototherapy is stimulation of natural processes within our bodies with no side effects it is also safe for use at home.

The devices we feature do not contain harmful ultraviolet rays but on that safe selected range of light wavelengths which provide balanced biopositive effects.

Medical Treatments

Photo Therapy is valuable treatment to supplement many medical treatment programmes by supporting the regeneration and healing process through enhancing the various phases of natural regeneration in the body.

These biopositive effects are:

- activiation of local and systemic nircoricrculation - i.e. increasing blood flow to speed up healing.

- Enhancing oxygen transporation to the cell membrane - i.e. increasing the natural healing function of specific cells in the body who are designed to rebuild and repair.

- Optimising permeability of the cell membrane - i.e. the better both oxygen and carbon dioxide can be transported in and out of the cells of our body then the faster both cells can repair and also the faster cells can produce new cells.

- Improvement of cell metabolism - i.e. during the repair process those cells future function is increased to an optimal level of function.

- Stimulation of lymphatic system - i.e. our lymph system is as equally important as the blood flowing around our body because the lymph system is a network of organs, lymph nodes, lymph ducts, and lymph vessels that make and move lymph from tissues to the bloodstream. The lymph system is a major part of the body's immune system.

- Regulation of our hormonal system - i.e. "The endocrine system refers to the collection of glands of an organism that secrete hormones directly into the circulatory system to be carried towards a distant target organ" SIMPLIFY OR SHORTEN

It does this by inflammation retarding, pain reduction, improves perfusion and assists in both the development of new blood vessels as well as enhancing lymphatic drainage and in addition triggering general metabolic activity. Put simply : . . . . . . . . . .

The best news is that because light therapy is a completely natural biostimulative approach no side effects have been reported through extensive research as long as it is applied in certified indications.
