LIGHT THERAPY

Photobiomodulation is known as light therapy. Light therapy involves the use of light-emitting diodes (LEDs) to deliver a specific wavelength of light that can be absorbed by cells in the body.

What is Photobiomodulation?

Photobiomodulation is otherwise known as light therapy.

Light therapy involves the use of light-emitting diodes (LEDs) to deliver a specific wavelength of light that can be absorbed by cells in the body. The LED type determines the wavelength of light and can be tuned to a particular tissue or organ.

All biological activity in our body requires ATP just like plants require chlorophyl.

Photobiomodulation is painless, non-invasive, systemic, drug-free and has shown to have no negative side effects when used appropriately.

History of Light Therapy

Light therapy has been used for centuries for healing purposes. Hippocrates discovered that applying sunlight to the skin could relieve ailments such as rickets, scurvy and arthritis. However, until recently, scientists began understanding how this worked on a cellular level.

Understanding Wavelengths:
810 vs 1070

The 1070nm LED’s are unique in that they penetrate further into the skull targeting the mitochondria. A study on Photobiomodulation at Different Wavelengths (Pruit, 2022) shows the difference between two wavelengths around 800 and 1070. The study states “the 1064nm sustained longer and more increases of the physiological effects as compared to the other.” The study was done with lasers first then compared to LED’s and suggested using LED’s as a safer and more important role in the development of PBM.

Research is also being conducted in the UK by Paul Chazot at Durham University and he explains clearly in this video why the 1070 is the wavelength they are focused on.

A Cellular Breakdown

Photobiomodulation is defined as the use of light energy to trigger photochemical changes within cellular structures (mitochondria) that are receptive to red and near-infrared (NIR) light. The mitochondria produce cellular energy by producing a molecule called adenosine triphosphate (ATP). The energy from ATP enables us to carry out all physiological activities and provides energy to the brain cells. In addition, application of light energy leads to greater blood flow to the brain – allowing delivery of nutrients and removal of waste products.

This is a new way of ‘charging’ the brain and now research is starting to show significant benefit of this therapy for brain health.

Using EEG to Apply PBM

Neuronic’s device uses 4 quadrants that are programmed to be on or off and/or at different pulse rates in accordance with the data shown from a user's EEG scan. This allows us to use photobiomodulation in combination with the EEG to provide certain protocols and training and is why we offer consultation services exclusively with the 4 quadrant device.

Photobiomodulation is more than an alternative kind of medical treatment. It is a whole new method to control cellular processes and modulate living organisms by precise alterations in the chemistry of biomolecules."

Key Mechanism in Action

The expression of several genes and proteins that play a role in disease mechanisms seen in cognitive decline surprisingly changes during long-term use of Photobiomodulation (PBM) (Bathini, Raghushaker and Mahato, 2020).

By now, we can understand that mitochondrial dysfunction appears to be a central mediator of neurodegenerative disease pathogenesis and disease progression.

Glossary

APOPTOSIS

noun

[ a-puhp-tow-suhs ]

is the process of programmed cell death. It is used during early development to eliminate unwanted cells, for example, those between the fingers of a developing hand. In adults, apoptosis is used to rid the body of cells that have been damaged beyond repair.

Proliferation

noun

[ pruh-li-fr-ay-shn ] 

rapid reproduction of a cell, part, or organism.

Oxidative stress

noun

[ aak-suh-day-tuhv ]

is a phenomenon caused by an imbalance between production and accumulation of oxygen reactive species (ROS) in cells and tissues and the ability of a biological system to detoxify these reactive products

ATP

noun

[ ei-ti-pi ]

(Adenosine triphosphate) is an organic compound that provides energy to drive many processes in living cells, such as muscle contraction, nerve impulse propagation, condensate dissolution, and chemical synthesis.

Neurofeedback

noun

[ nur-ow-feed-bak ]

also called neurotherapy, is a type of biofeedback that presents real-time feedback from brain activity in order to reinforce healthy brain function through operant conditioning.
