How light relieves pain and inflammation while promoting healing

Got pain, inflammation, need healing? Get the proven power of light. This Harvard researcher has repeatedly shown that shining red and near-infrared light into the body will “stimulate healing, relieve pain, and reduce inflammation.” The light increases energy production, calcium release and nitric oxide induction. This leads “to improved cell survival, increased proliferation and migration, and new protein synthesis.” The light helps the body “up-regulate anti-oxidant defenses and reduce oxidative stress.” In reviewing the studies they found a consistent “overall reduction in inflammation, which is particularly important for disorders of the joints, traumatic injuries, lung disorders, and in the brain.” “Many reports have shown reductions in reactive nitrogen species and prostaglandins in various animal models. PBM can reduce inflammation in the brain, abdominal fat, wounds, lungs, spinal cord.”   Read the abstract:
