Balancing Hormones (Thyroid) & Fat Reduction:

Review.” Lasers in Surgery and Medicine, U.S. National Library of Medicine, Aug. 2013, www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3769994/.

“The studies as of today suggest that LLLT has a potential to be used in fat and cellulite reduction as well as in improvement of blood lipid profile without any significant side effects. One of the main proposed mechanism of actions is based upon production of transient pores in adipocytes, allowing lipids to leak out. Another is through activation of the complement cascade which could cause induction of adipocyte apoptosis and subsequent release of lipids.”

Gamma-Irradiated Rats.” Photochemistry and Photobiology, U.S. National Library of Medicine, 14 May 2015, pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/25975382/.

“Results revealed improvement in thyroid function, liver function and antioxidant levels, and the blood cells count after LLLT”

Natural Healing Process:

Restoring.” Seminars in Cutaneous Medicine and Surgery, U.S. National Library of Medicine, Mar. 2013, pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/24049929/.

“Stem cells can be activated, allowing increased tissue repair and healing. In dermatology, LLLT has beneficial effects on wrinkles, acne scars, hypertrophic scars, and healing of burns. LLLT can reduce UV damage both as a treatment and as a prophylactic measure. In pigmentary disorders such as vitiligo, LLLT can increase pigmentation by stimulating melanocyte proliferation and reduce depigmentation by inhibiting autoimmunity. Inflammatory diseases such as psoriasis and acne can also be managed. The noninvasive nature and almost complete absence of side effects encourage further testing in dermatology.”

Healing: LASER x LED.” Anais Brasileiros De Dermatologia, Sociedade Brasileira De Dermatologia, 2014, www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC4148276/.

“The biological effects promoted were reduction of inflammatory cells, increased proliferation of fibroblasts, stimulation of collagen synthesis, angiogenesis inducement and granulation tissue formation.”

Reverse Effects of Aging:

Núñez-Álvarez, C., and N. N Osborne. “Blue Light Exacerbates and Red Light

Counteracts Negative Insults to Retinal Ganglion Cells in Situ and R28 Cells in Vitro.” Neurochemistry International, U.S. National Library of Medicine, 27 Feb. 2019, pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/30825600/.

“These effects were diminished when ischemia was induced with concomitant delivery of red light, and exacerbated when blue light was used. We conclude that while the levels of blue light that reach the human retina will be a fraction of those used in the present study, the chronic nature might, on a theoretical basis, be detrimental to RGC mitochondria which are already affected by conditions such as glaucoma. Our findings also show that exposing the retina to red light may be a therapeutic approach to supporting healthy mitochondrial functions as part of the treatment for retinal diseases in which these organelles are affected.”

Sleep:

Naeser, Margaret A, et al. “Significant Improvements in Cognitive Performance Post-

Transcranial, Red/near-Infrared Light-Emitting Diode Treatments in Chronic, Mild Traumatic Brain Injury: Open-Protocol Study.” Journal of Neurotrauma, U.S. National Library of Medicine, 3 June 2014, pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/24568233/.

“Participants reported improved sleep, and fewer post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) symptoms, if present. Participants and family reported better ability to perform social, interpersonal, and occupational functions. These open-protocol data suggest that placebo-controlled studies are warranted.”

Rheumatoid Arthritis.” The Cochrane Database of Systematic Reviews, U.S. National Library of Medicine, 26 Oct. 1998, pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/10796462/.

" Relative to a separate control group, LLLT reduced pain by 70% relative to placebo and reduced morning stiffness duration by 27.5 minutes (95%CI: 2.9 to 52 minutes) and increased tip to palm flexibility by 1.3 cm (95% CI: 0. 8 to 1.7 cm). "
