Who would have thought that one of the most organic forces in our world could be harnessed for medical purposes? Dynamic light therapy, or ‘phototherapy’, is the exposure of the body’s cells to different frequencies of light. The absorption of these rays into the body’s tissues increases metabolism, skin health, and cellular regrowth!
Here’s What You Need to Know:
What is Dynamic Light Therapy?
Dynamic light therapy has over 40 years of research behind it confirming its strong health benefits. The process works by exposing tissue to light energy at wavelengths between 630nm and 940nm. Each kind of tissue and cell type has a unique response to the light absorption. Certain tissues are affected by different wavelengths, which allows the dynamic light therapy stimulants to both repair and promote cellular metabolism at the same time.
Where did Dynamic Light Therapy come from?
There was a reason ancient cultures like the Greeks, Egyptians, Romans, Chinese, Incas, and Mayans all worshiped the sun and its light. There is medical literature dated back thousands of years relating light to a person’s health. In modern medicine, physician Niels Finsen won the Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine (1903) for his work with red light treatment and smallpox lesions. In the mid to late twentieth century, serious medical studies began at the National Institutes of Mental Health to determine the effect of daylight exposure to a person’s overall physical health in combination with their emotional response. It was discovered that there are certain glands in the brain that release chemicals, hormones, and other beneficial substances into the body- all affected by light. Since then, dynamic light therapy is a recommended treatment for depression, certain skin disorders (like jaundice, sensitivity, etc.).
Who benefits from Dynamic Light Therapy?
It is recommended that a patient receives dynamic light therapy two times a week for 25 minute sessions in order to see steady and fast results. The professionals at Scottsdale’s American Center for Biological Medicine recommend dynamic light therapy for those looking to stimulate…
