Photobiomodulation is accually new name for an ancient therapy. Light has been used in the healing arts of every culture throughout time. In the United States it was abandon as quackery with the invention of antibiotics. Light therapy in all forms has been making a strong comeback in the last fifty years, as chronic disease increases, antibiotics fail, and more people are demanding natural alturnatives to drugs and surgery. The term 'Photobiomodulation' marks the formal acceptance of light therapy into modern conventional medicine. However the therapy is not new. Research goes back decades and has been published by major universities all over the world. Here is a very short list of conditions that can be treated, prevented, and even reversed with light and are FDA approved: Acne, Anti-Aging, Hair Loss, Pain Relief, Fat Loss and Stem Cell Production.
NAALT defines Photobiomodulation Therapy as 'form of light therapy that utilizes non-ionizing forms of light sources, includeing LEDs, Lasers and broad band light, in the visible and infrared spectrum. It is a non-thermal process involving endogenous chromophores eliciting photophysical (i.e. linear and non-linear) and photochemical events at various biological scales. This process results in beneficial therapeutic outcomes including but not limited to the alleviation of pain or inflammation, immunomodulation, and promotion of wound healing and tissue regeneration.”
Photobiomodulation is a form of light therapy.
It uses harmless forms of light sources such as low level lasers, LEDs and broad-band light sources including incandescent, fluorescent or halogen lights. It does not work by heat. It works because our cells contain “chromophores” which literally absorb light.
Once the light is absorbed, it sets off a complex group of physical and chemical reactions within the cell. These reactions can and do extend to cells that have not even been exposed to the light.
All the effects of this process have so far been positive and beneficial.
Just a few of the beneficial effects include:
