The purpose of this article is to look at low level lasers up to 100 mW peak or average power within the lower end of the price range. LEDs seem to help with a lot of things but for deeper set problems a high peak power may be required, and this necessitates pulsing. There are […]
I have had pretty good success using low level light therapy (LLLT) for a number of conditions. However, I have a generalized shoulder/scapular pain that is not well treated by the devices which I currently have. So I decided to take a look at some of the information relating to LLLT treatments of chronic shoulder […]
This article is based on a dissertation published in the Ukraine 2006. This dissertation is on the topic of pulsed laser treatment of hypothyroidism and markers of coronary heart disease. A lot of research into autoimmune hypothyroidism has been conducted in Ukraine because of the rise in this condition due to the Chernobyl meltdown. This […]
I touched on the topic of dosing light therapy in a couple of other articles but it it might be a good idea write it up in a separate article. Light can be a tricky subject to get your head around but it is important when using these targeted devices to dose appropriately. While I […]
Recently I’ve been seeing more and more talk about intranasal light devices and decided to look into the subject again. This article is available on Patreon. Access to all articles is available for 3 dollars per month!
Light Therapy For Hypothyroidism The purpose of this article is to look at the published data in this field (photobiomodulation in the treatment of hypothyroidism) and see how this could be applied to relatively cheap LEDs. Many people have taken to using these devices but it seems that most don’t take a lot of […]
Pulsed Light Treatment of Hypothyroidism This article is going to take a look at some data on pulsed low level laser therapy in the treatment of autoimmune hypothyroidism. This study shows two techniques of application, one which affects the autoimmune processes and another which has a stronger effect on thyroid hormones and TSH. You can […]
The human data on red and near infrared light treatment of hypothyroidism mostly falls into two categories. The low power output non-pulsed series of studies which I have discussed here and the pulsed studies with much higher peak power output which I will look at in future. This article is going to look at a […]

This article takes a look at the effects of near infrared laser therapy on thyroid hormone levels. Red and near-infrared therapy at low doses can decrease hypothyroidism and the autoimmune response sometimes causing it. Here I am going to look at some animal studies showing positive and negative effects on thyroid hormone. It seems that […]
