Red Light Therapy May Help Manage Lupus Symptoms

Lupus is an autoimmune disease that affects the body’s tissues and organs. It is estimated that 1.5 million Americans have lupus, with women accounting for 90% of the diagnosed cases (lupus.org).

Common symptoms of lupus include inflammation, severe joint pain, fatigue, hair loss, and sensitivity to light, which can lead to seasonal affective disorder in patients. Chronic pain is reported by 65% of patients as the most challenging aspect of the disease (lupus.org).

While there is no apparent cure for lupus, outside of lifestyle, traditional treatments focus on improving the quality of life for patients through measures such as limiting sun exposure and medications.

Natural therapies, including red light therapy (Photobiomodulation) and nutritional excellence, can also help manage symptoms.

What is red light therapy? (Photobiomodulation) “Changing the Body with Light.”

Red light therapy is a natural wellness modality that helps cells repair themselves and accelerate wellness. The human body is made up of 70 to 100 trillion cells, which can break down over time due to an active lifestyle and exposure to toxins.

This breakdown leads to the production of free radicals and oxidative stress, resulting in increased fatigue and a less effective immune system. Red light therapy produces ATP energy, which helps cells repair themselves and promotes wellness at a faster rate, up to 4 to 10 times faster.

Four common symptoms that Advanced Recovery and Rejuvenation Chamber can help manage:

1. Inflammation and Chronic Pain:

Lupus can cause inflammation in various systems and organs of the body, including joints, skin, kidneys, blood cells, brain, heart, and lungs (mayoclinic.org). Red light therapy (Photobiomodulation) treatments increase blood flow, aiding in the repair of damaged cells and tissues. According to Dr. Michael R Hamblin, red light therapy stimulates mitochondria to produce energy more efficiently, leading to the production of healing anti-inflammatories and disease-fighting antioxidants (nih.gov).

Advanced rejuvenation and recovery chambers offer a chronic pain setting that provides whole-body inflammation and pain management in just a 15-minute session. Reducing inflammation can help alleviate pain and calm lupus symptoms.

2. Fatigue:

Fatigue is a common symptom experienced by lupus patients. Red light therapy (Photobiomodulation) using specific light wavelengths can help increase energy levels and boost the immune system by promoting deep mitochondrial healing.

3. Hair Loss:

Hair loss can be a significant source of physical and emotional stress for lupus patients, with 85% of patients with Systemic Lupus Erythematosus experiencing hair loss (Desai). Red light therapy (Photobiomodulation) stimulates circulation, which may increase hair strength and follicle production.

By reducing inflammation and preventing rashes that can lead to irreversible hair loss, red light therapy can help patients maintain healthy hair.

4. Seasonal Affective Disorder:

Lupus patients often face mood changes, depression, or anxiety due to the challenges of their disease. Sun exposure, which is recommended to be limited for lupus patients, can trigger symptoms and cause skin rash, joint pain, and fatigue.

Red light therapy, (Photobiomodulation)  in combination with psychotherapy or hypnosis, has shown promising results in alleviating acute depressive states (healthinsiders.com). By providing a dose of light without harmful UV-rays, advanced rejuvenation and recovery chambers, delivering more than whole-body red light therapy can help lupus patients manage seasonal affective disorder.


Red light therapy offers a natural and non-invasive approach to managing lupus symptoms. By promoting cell repair, reducing inflammation, increasing energy levels, and improving mood, red light therapy can significantly improve the quality of life for lupus patients.

Consider incorporating (Photobiomodulation)  into your treatment plan to experience its potential benefits.
