Is Red Light Therapy Right For You?

What is Infrared Therapy?


Infrared therapy is light-based method to treat pain and inflammation in various parts of

the body. Unlike ultraviolet light, which can damage the skin, infrared light enhances cell regeneration.

Infrared light is delivered to the site of injury or inflammation at certain wavelengths, promoting cell repair.


The key characteristic of infrared light is its ability to penetrate even the deep layers of the skin, providing

better pain relief. Also, infrared light is safe, natural, non-invasive, and painless. Thus it may be able to

provide a broad range of health benefits.


This type of therapy is safe and natural, which enables it to be offered as an alternative treatment for various

health conditions like muscle pain, joint stiffness, and arthritis, to name a few.


Infrared therapy has many roles in the human body. These include detoxification, pain relief, reduction of muscle

tension, relaxation, improved circulation, weight loss, skin purification, lowered side effects of diabetes,

boosting of the immune system and lowering of blood pressure.


What are the Health Benefits of Infrared Therapy?


Cardiovascular Health


One of the key health benefits of infrared therapy is improvement in cardiovascular health. Infrared light

increases the production of nitric oxide, a vital signaling molecule that is important for the health of blood

vessels. This molecule helps relax the arteries and prevents blood from clotting and clumping in the vessels.

Aside from these, it also combats free radicals to prevent oxidative stress and regulate blood pressure.


Nitric oxide is essential in improving blood circulation, which provides more oxygen and nutrients to injured

tissues. Thus, infrared light hastens wound healing and stimulates the regeneration of injured tissues, reducing

inflammation and pain.


Pain and Inflammation


Infrared therapy is an effective and safe remedy for pain and inflammation. It can penetrate deep through the layers

of the skin, to the muscles and bones. Since infrared therapy enhances and improves circulation in the skin and

other parts of the body, it can bring oxygen and nutrients to injured tissues, promoting healing. It helps ease pain,

relieve inflammation, and protect against oxidative stress.


Muscular Injuries


Infrared therapy improves the action of the mitochondria within cells, thus triggering the growth and repair of

new muscles cells and tissues. In other words, infrared light can hasten the repair process after a muscle injury.


Detoxification


Infrared therapy can be applied through saunas. Detoxifications are important since they may strengthen the immune

system. At the same time, detoxification aid biochemical processes to function properly, improving food digestion.

In infrared saunas, the body’s core temperature increases, leading to detoxification at the cellular level.


Skin Health and Appearance


In addition to helping you make more energy, improving your circulation, and reducing your inflammation, red light

therapy also boosts your own collagen production, for healthier, younger-looking skin. It also improves acne,eczema,

psoriasis, cold sores and vitiligio.


The stimulation of hair growth


Alopecia, or hair loss, is a common disorder affecting 50% of males over the age of 40 and 75% of females over 65.

There are few approved, effective treatments available. However, studies performed on men and women have shown

that red light therapy can stimulate hair growth.


Red light wavelengths are believed to stimulate epidermal stem cells in the hair follicle, shifting the follicle

into the anagen phase (this is the active growth stage). Research performed on mice with chemotherapy-induced

alopecia showed similar responsiveness--the treatment encouraged hair growth.




In conclusion; since red light therapy restores cellular function and increased collagen production is also increased; individuals who regularly use red

light therapy report that not only do they feel better and heal faster, but their appearance is more youthful and
