Every cell in our body is powered by a microscopic power bank called mitochondria. These mitochondria are responsible for producing the cellular energy to allow our bodies to perform normal daily functions, from eating and breathing to healing and recovering optimally. Red light and near infrared light (NIR) give our mitochondria a supercharge, allowing them to do their jobs as they normally would, but tenfold.
- Combats lethargy
- Boosts liver functions
- Skin repair
- Beneficial for lungs
- Reduces scar tissue
- Promotes circulation
- Pain relief
- Enhances the senses
- Beneficial for bone health
- Improves nutritional metabolism
- Beneficial for the heart
- Regenerates blood
- Beneficial for kidneys
- Boost liver function
- Promotes muscle healing
- Promotes wound healing
The benefits of red light therapy go far beyond the skin. With a wavelength that ranges from 600nm-700nm, red light waves promote increased circulation and can help to significantly decrease inflammation. Both are incredibly helpful for those who suffer from chronic illnesses. This is because decreased inflammation helps to soothe pain and allow for a return to normal daily activities. Not to mention, all body systems (lungs, heart, bones, etc.) will benefit from increased circulation and decreased inflammation.
NIR (Near Infrared):
- Pain relief
- Speeds up wound healing
- Increases circulation
- Healing of muscles and ligament sprains
- Enzymes boosted to improve body processes
- Boost mitochondria function in cells for healing and energy
- Boosts DNA in body cells for better healing
- Alleviates allergy symptoms
- Speeds up healing of burns
- Skin repairs
Near infrared (NIR) light therapy has only begun to make its impact on modern medicine. From pain relief to anti-bacterial properties, we have only seen the tip of the iceberg as far as what light waves can do for our health. Red light is ideal for more superficial areas at the skin level and just below the skin, while NIR penetrates to the deeper underlying areas such as muscle, lymph, joints, bone, and brain.
Near-infrared is the range of wavelengths that are approximately 800nm-1,150nm, thus having the maximum depth of penetration in tissue within the “therapeutic window”. These wavelengths are used in diagnostic medicine because they are able to penetrate deeper below human tissues to allow us a glimpse within the human body. NIR has shown great results for recovery by reducing inflammation, increasing oxygen levels, increasing nitric oxide levels for vasodilation, and making the cells more resilient to stressors.
Understanding Nogier Frequencies and Pulsing
Pulsed vs Continuous Wave (CW) - Continuous wave is when the light source is turned on and stays at a constant level of output until it’s turned off; No variation. Some applications may benefit from continuous waves.
Pulsed wave is when the light is interrupted or pulsed by a frequency. The light source is turned on and off at programmed time intervals. This happens very quickly and is usually not detectable by the human eye (above 80hz). It’s been theorized that pulsed light may drive the light deeper into the tissue as well as provide a resonance to cells, providing a variety of applications not available with the CW. The Nogier Frequencies have taken the basic single pulse to an entirely new level. Dr. Nogier discovered a relationship between the various parts of the body, their respective resonating frequencies, and the optimum treatment frequencies.
Nogier frequencies are the most popular pulse frequencies that are used in Photobiomodulation treatments, especially for healing purposes. Depending on the specific Nogier Frequency, there are various levels of healing that can take place; From the surface level of the skin healing to remediation of organs that lie deep within the body. For instance, Nogier Frequency 292 is most beneficial for wound healing and other issues that are located on the surface of the skin. Nogier Frequency 586 is great for treating lung and liver problems, as well as issues that may be within the GI tract.
