SS6 * Light – Diabetic Neuropathy * BPA – Neonatal Heart * Gelatin – Neuromuscular Metabolism * Neonicotinoids – Estrogen * Trichotillomania – Progesterone

Photobiomodulation induces antinociception, recovers structural aspects and regulates mitochondrial homeostasis in peripheral nerve of diabetic mice Red light therapy improves pain and nerve function in an animal model of Diabetic Peripheral Neuropathy. Scientists prove the usefulness of a pretty simple light therapy protocol using non-pulsed light, this is a relatively simple protocol to replicate. You can […]

The Pulsed Laser Treatment Of Hypothyroidism And Heart Disease

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. If […]

Dosing Low Level Light Therapy

Dosing Low Level Light Therapy – Rheumatoid Arthritis

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 […]

Lighting Up Your Brain On A Budget

Recently I’ve been seeing more and more talk about intranasal light devices and decided to look into the subject again. A few years ago I tried to read up a little but I couldn’t find much data. The early Vielight devices were out at that point but I couldn’t find specifications for them. Normally when […]

Experiences With Light Therapy

This is an article on the various light therapy devices that I have found myself using after a few years of experimentation. I’ve written about the technical aspects of some of these devices here before so it might be interesting to look back and see how useful they have been to me in reality. I […]

Light Treatment Of Hypothyroidism – Is It Possible With LEDs?

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 – Part I

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 […]

Laser Treatment Of Hypothyroidism – Part II

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 […]

Light And Hypothyroidism – Cure Or Cause?

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 […]
