Speed Healing & Ease Pain
NASA scientists have found that human cells exposed to near-infrared light from
light emitting diodes (LEDs) grow 150 to 200 percent faster than cells not
stimulated by the light. Researchers at the Medical College of Wisconsin and
the Children's Hospital of Wisconsin in Milwaukee have used this information to
develop a form of phototherapy to speed the healing process and reduce pain for
young cancer patients. Learn more about the clinical trials and results by
reading the article
at the NASA website.
In over 2,500 studies and clinical trials
IR photo bio-stimulation has been shown to deliver powerful therapeutic
benefits. Recent discoveries by NASA and others have created a revolution in
our understanding and ability to control the photo bio-simulative process. As a
result of these amazing new discoveries, our Shuttle Astronauts now use
infrared light to combat the muscle and bone wasting effects of zero gravity.
Navy Seals use IR LEDs to heal injuries up to two and a half times faster than
without IR Light, and U.S. submariners use them to stay strong and healthy
during their long tours undersea.
conducted with scanning laser Doppler demonstrate increases in
microcirculation from 400% to 3200% after one IR LED treatment.
have shown that human tissue exposed to IR light from LEDs, grows at a
rate from 150 to 200% faster than cells not stimulated by such light.
treated with IR Light show a five-fold increase in growth phase specific
increases in the production of ATP (cellular energy) have been observed in
cells exposed to IR Light.
