Red Light Therapy

One of the most exciting areas of research in mitochondrial medicine is that of light frequencies. Current research is showing light as a very important component of healing. Not all light is beneficial, some light can be harmful. For example: junk light, like florescence or blue light from electronic devices. These lights can have a negative impact on the body, especially on sleep health. Most of the scientific data on beneficial light is on near infrared and red light therapy. Some people even believe that most diseases of the modern day world started with the development of the light bulb because it brought humans inside and no longer getting enough exposure to the sun!

There are several mechanisms of action with light therapy. Some recent studies have shown that red and near infrared light therapy works by stimulating your mitochondria. There are several ways that we think the light therapy is having an impact. It seems to trigger the production of new mitochondria, enhances the amount of ATP produced by the mitochondria, and can increase nitric oxide which helps with blood flow.

Our mitochondria actually have receptors for light. When light activates the receptor it works as a messenger and turns on many different pathways in our body. Light frequencies have been shown to help with:

Performance & Recovery

We’re on the cutting edge of the next level of sport performance. Several recent clinical studies have shown higher endurance performance, faster recovery, and increased muscle gain from Red Light Therapy.

Beauty & Skin

Red Therapy goes way beyond just the fat loss commercials you may have seen. Most of the Beauty benefits we’ve seen come down to promoting healthier skin function at the cellular level, which has been shown to improve skin texture and feel, increase collagen production, and diminish fine lines, scars, stretch marks, and wrinkles. This is likely to be the first benefit you’ll notice with consistent Red Light Therapy.

Health & Wellness

One of the most important things you can possibly do for your health is to get more sunshine. For those of us too busy or in the middle of winter there are many positive effects to supplementing our light intake with different light devices including Light Boxes, UV lights, and Red Light Therapy Devices.

At Spectra we offer Red Light Therapy sessions to any patient who wishes to try it. We use the RedRush 360 by Red Therapy Co. While it is great and hugely beneficial even with a few sessions, Red Light Therapy is best utilized on a consistent and even daily basis. So, it is recommended that if you want to get the most out of Red Light Therapy you should invest in your own device. Utilize the link below to shop products and learn more.

The Lit Bed

The Lit Bed

Lifeforce Machine
The Lit Bed is a cutting edge device that is utilized to teach you how to relax and meditate. The bed combines the healing modalities of color, music, and vibrational frequencies in a relaxing and restorative treatment. Sessions are one hour long during which you are “unplugged” from devices and stress. A protocol is 3-4 one hour sessions over 2-3 days and provides the most results when 3 full protocols are completed each separated by 4-6 weeks. Patients have reported dramatic improvements in pain, sleep, mood, and many other symptoms. Additionally, many people will be able to learn from the experience how to meditate and can more easily incorporate meditation into their daily lives. Come and try this amazing device today!

PhotoBioModulation

PhotoBioModulation (PBM)

photo bio modulation

PhotoBioModulation (PBM) is the delivery of photonic energy (light) to cells in the body that has been shown to improve energy, manage stress, improve mobility and sharpen mental acuity. PBM can stimulate cells to work more efficiently and fluidly by exposing cells to specific peaks of photonic energy within the visible and near-infrared light spectrum.  One of the primary mechanisms of PBM is the stimulation of mitochondria, the energy powerhouse of the cell. Mitochondria produce adenosine triphosphate (ATP), which is an energy-carrying molecule found in the cells of all living things. The mitochondria capture chemical energy obtained from the breakdown of food molecules and releases ATP to fuel other cellular processes. Increasing ATP has positive effects on many systems within the body.

The Mechanism of Action of PhotoBioModulation?

PhotoBioModulation (PBM) is also referred to as Low Level Laser (or light) Therapy (LLLT). It is the molecular and cellular interactions and biological cascades resulting from exposure to specific wavelengths of photonic energy (light). These interactions utilize non-ionizing and non-thermal light sources, including lasers, light emitting diodes (LEDs), and/or broadband light to drive these biological responses.  These wavelengths range from the visible range of 400–700nm to the near-infrared range of 700–1100nm on the electromagnetic spectrum.

PBM responses begin in the mitochondrial membrane of the electron transport chain, specifically with the enzyme cytochrome c-oxidase (CCO) complex IV.  PhotoBioModulation synthesizes adenosine tri-phosphate (ATP). PBM also regulates reactive oxygen species (ROS or free radicals) and nitric oxide (NO) to restore or optimize mitochondrial function. Use of PBM has been studied and documented for alleviation of pain and inflammation, promotion of wound healing, tissue regeneration and increase of mental acuity. As the understanding of PBM mechanisms and benefits continues to improve, it has been the subject of over 6,000 peer-reviewed publications.

PBM is a non-invasive, painless and affordable therapy. 

Oxidative Stress

“Oxidative stress” is a term used to describe an imbalance in the body between antioxidants and free radicals. Free radicals are atoms and molecules that are highly reactive with other cellular structures because they contain unpaired electrons. This condition can cause damage to cells, proteins and DNA.

Additionally, free radicals are natural by-products of ongoing biochemical reactions in the body, including ordinary metabolic processes and immune system responses.

The body experiences oxidative stress on an ongoing basis because it maintains a certain amount of oxidative stress naturally. This can be a natural reaction to an event that upsets the body’s balance, such as an injury or exposure to a pathogen or environmental toxins. Once the body responds to and resolves the stressor the body can return to a healthy balance, or equilibrium.

However, when the immune system becomes overwhelmed and unable to restore equilibrium, oxidative stress becomes detrimental to the body. Inflammation and its related conditions are some of the most common results of oxidative stress.

By restoring oxidative balance, PBM reduces the biological drivers of inflammation.

PBM Energy (Light)

The Photonx Wellness Consoles are specially engineered photonic energy devices, capable of simultaneously delivering multiple, specific wavelengths of photonic energy.  The system delivers peak wavelengths within the visible and near-infrared spectrum. These wavelengths include 405nm, 530nm, 630nm, 660nm, and 810nm.

Improve Energy

Photonx PhotoBioModulation (PBM) helps improve cellular energy through the activation of the mitochondria to synthesize ATP.

PBM’s mechanism stimulates cellular energy production.

Manage Stress

Improve Mobility

One of the signs of oxidative stress in the body is upregulation of inflammatory markers.  PBM has been shown to reduce inflammatory markers and increase range of motion.

PBM restores balance to unstable electrons to relieve the body of the cellular stress and its effects. This includes the inflammatory markers that impair mobility and restrict range of motion; thus, improving mobility. 

Sharpen Mental Acuity

PBM has been shown to increase mental acuity and sharpen cognitive function. In the brain, PBM increases cellular energy (ATP), cerebral blood flow, mitochondrial activity and enhances brain oxygenation.29 Additionally, PBM decreases cerebral inflammation and oxidative stress.30 This allows for sharpened memory, quicker response times and improved concentration.
