Light Therapy and Infrared Saunas

What is Light Therapy?

We've evolved under the sun's natural light spectrum over a billion years, at the cellular, tissular and systemic level. Our Sun produces light and heat via the physical phenomenon called black body radiation, also called incandescence. 

Upon being heated, a material will incandence, emitting a predictable natural thermal light spectrum. The Sun produces natural full-spectrum light. Certain thermal infrared bands simulate the spectrum of the suns light.

Burning at 5800K, the sun's spectrum peaks at 500nm in the visible light band. 
We observe that 600-950nm wavelengths activate mitochondrial healing systems so we call this the Light Therapy Band. Water begins to absorb light strongly at 1150nm and above, so the Thermal Infrared band above 1150nm provides the Heat Therapy.

Infrared light and thermal exposure Benefits

Certain Infrared light and thermal exposure can help with the following:

1. Repairing and re-growth of cells and tissues.

2. Full-body heat therapy brings the detoxifying effects of heat to the deepest cells of the internal organs.

3. Mitochondrial activation helps repair and re-optimize your epigenetic and gene expression.

4. Certain IR light and thermal wavelengths stimulate natural collagen production which can reduce visible cellulite

5. Stimulus boosts cell metabolism, making more energy available for cellular systems.

6. Has been shown to promote inflammatory mediators that reduce inflammation

7. Passive Light and Heat therapy relax the nervous and other biological systems for real stress reduction.

8. Disciplined hyperthermic therapy has been shown to decrease risk of cardiovascular disease and increase longevity.

9. Frequent heat stress tempers the body and has been shown to improves endurance, cognitive functioning & strength.

10. Has been shown to help heal a variety of skin problems

11. Light and Heat work together to relax our nervous system into the 'rest & digest' (parasympathetic) state which is ideal for efficient, restful sleeping.

12. Has been shown to accelerate wound healing and tissue repair

When we expose ourselves to these conditions we build Mitochondria creating the body's natural ways of healing.
Almost every cell in our bodies has a mitochondria. More than just the powerhouse of the cell, the mitochondria is an intelligent agent that controls elaborate biological repair systems in the DNA, cells and tissues.

It's special light receptor protein, cytochrome c oxidase is molecularly designed to activated exclusively by 600-950nm wavelengths of light, which is red and near infrared! This is how photobiomodulation or photobiology (controlling biological systems with light) works.

Direct effects mitochondrial stimulation with near infrared light wavelengths are: 

1. Increased ATP production 

2. Release of NO-, nitric oxide into tissues 

3. Formation of ROS, the reactive oxygen species

Raising core body temperature for several minutes while remaining passive activates many full-body detoxification systems, including: 

A. Passive sweating activates via the skin, the body's largest organ, is turned into an organ of detoxification, helping out the liver and kidneys.

B. Production of Heat Shock Proteins, specialized cellular repairmen that make cell detoxification much more efficient and repair damaged, mal-formed proteins.

C. Increased blood circulation & tissue oxygenation

D. Tissue Growth including Human Growth Hormone production

E. BDNF (Brain Derived Neurotropic Factor).

What type of Neurofeedback is the most effective?

NeurOptimal® is considered by many to be the most highly evolved form of neurofeedback available today. After more than 40 years in the neuroscience field and related disciplines, Dr. Valdeane and Dr. Susan Cheshire Brown, have developed a safe, effective system that gives feedback directly to your brain allowing it to regulate itself more efficiently.

What happens in a Brain Training Session?
During these Neuroptimal brain training sessions, you wear two tiny sensors on your head and ear clips on your ears that record your brain waves. You sit in a comfortable chair and listen to music while closing your eyes. The music and respond to your brainwaves as shifts in brain patterns create brief interruptions in the music. These interruptions give the brain the opportunity to self-correct into a more natural, relaxed and effective pattern. After a session you feel refreshed, relaxed, and in a higher state of mental alertness and flow.
