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 […]
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 […]
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 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 […]
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 […]

Patreon supporters please read via this page for information on database and references. The effects of light on metabolism have been known for over 100 years. John Harvey Kellogg in Light Therapeutics recounts some of the observations as of 1910.(1) “An animal eliminates more carbon dioxide under the influence of light than when confined in […]
This is a guide to buying red and near-infrared LEDs with potentially beneficial biological effects. Most commonly this is called Low Level Laser Therapy (LLLT), Cold Laser Therapy or Photobiomodulation. Part 1 on heat lamps and halogen bulbs is here (*) Why Use Red And Near-Infrared Light? Some of the many conditions that may benefit from […]
