SYNOPSIS OF THE THERAPEUTIC EFFECTS OF MONOCHROMATIC

SINGLE-WAVELENGTH RED LIGHT 660nm

In Europe, during the 1960's, it was discovered that certain monochromatic single-wavelength light beams had excellent therapeutic effects on afflicted cell tissues. This occures through a process called "Photostimulation". Various single wavelengths in the red and infrared color spectrums (630 nm to 950 nanometers) have been used extensively because they fall within the cellular frequency ranges of biological tissue. However, one of the most widely used is 660 nanometer red wavelength, because it is closer to the actual frequency of the healthy cell. A single light wave is essential because the cell tissue will not respond if more than one wavelength is present.

To reach the problem areas, the light beam can either be applied directly to the skin, where it penetrates approximately 1" into the soft tissue (always best penetration in a darkened room) or it can be applied to the acupuncture meridian points. A single wavelength light beam will travel through the body's accupuncture meridian channels like fibre optics, to reach internal areas within the body. The light also acts as an extremely effective acupuncture point stimulator device. Therefore, using a combination of both direct application and acupuncture/acupressure point techniques, any problem area within your body may be reached by the light.

KNOWN MECHANISMS OF ACTION **

INCREASES CIRCULATION by increasing the formation of new capillaries to replace damaged ones. New capillaries speed the healing process by carrying more oxygen and nutrients as well as faciliate waste removal.


STIMULATES COLLAGEN PRODUCTION: Collagen is the most common protein in the body. It is formed with vitamin C and amino acids and is used to repair damaged tissue. It is the matrix that holds cells together.


INCREASES RNA & DNA SYNTHESIS: This helps damaged cells be replaced promptly.


STIMULATES FIBROBLASTIC ACTIVITY: which aids in the repair process. Fibroblasts are cells which are present in connective tissue and capable of forming collgen fibers.


STIMULATES TISSUE GRANULATION: which are connective tissue projections necessary for wound healing / tissue repair.


STIMULATES THE RELEASE OF ATP BY THE CELL: ATP is the major carrier of energy to all cells. Increases in ATP allow cells to accept nutrients faster and rid themselves of waste faster by increased energy level. All food must be turned into ATP before being used by cell. ATP provides the energy which drives the cellular enzymes and mechanisms.


INCREASES LYMPHATIC ACTIVITY & REDUCES EDEMA: Edema/ Swelling is the natural "splinting" process of the body to imobilize a damaged area. It has 2 basic components: 1: a liquid (lymph fluid) which can be evacuated by the blood/vascular system. 2) Proteins which have to be removed by the lymhatic system (no pump...manual). Research shows that lymph vessels diameter and flow can be doubled with the use of the red light. Venous diameter and arterial diameters are also increased. This means that both elements in Edema (liquid & protein) can be moved out much faster.


ANAGELSIC / PAIN RELIEF: Photons enter as negative ions. This calls on the body to send positive ions like calcium among others to go to treatment location. These ions assist in firing the nerves, relieving pain. Excellent for arthritis, tendonitis, rheumatology, carpel tunnel, etc.


STIMULATES ACETYLCHOLINE and other parasympathetic effects


INCREASES PHAGOCYTOSIS (IMMUNE ACTIVATOR): which is the process of WBC scavenging for and ingesting dead or degenerated or derranged cells (clean up crew). Destruction of infection and other debris must be eliminated to facilitate the healing process.


ANTIMICROBIAL (THERMAL EFFECTS): The light we're discussing here is 660nm Red Light. Phototherapy has a long history of cross-linking proteins of infectious microbes and killign them (UVBI) etc. With 660nm red light, used together with a photoactivator/sensitizer, it has profound antimicrobial effects. Photodynamic therapy is another name.
