All the Effects are good—You Just Get Better!
Regenus Center, at Core Therapies—a high-tech / high touch wellness center in Florham Park NJ is the first center of its kind, in New Jersey, to offer multivalve whole-body light therapy or “Photobiomodulation” as part of a complete light therapy program that is helping clients recharge from excess stress and recover from the consequent pain.
What’s new to the mainstream therapy field, and likely the essential missing ingredient is the application of Photobiomodulation (PHOTO—light, BIO—Body, MODULATION—Change). Light therapy is THE most fundamental recovery therapy next to sleep. You change the body with light, and it amps up your bodies self-healing powers to recharge, restore and reactivate.
When the regeneration of energy from light therapy via whole-body, laser and infrared (from sauna) combines with chiropractic, active release technique and other specialized kinetic treatments, and lifestyle re-training; amazing things can happen!
Photobiomodulation, which is basically “photosynthesis for the body” is a process whereby specific wavelengths of photons affect the cells in different ways. Each wavelength seems to have its healing signature.
Red, Near and Far InfraRed light, Green, and even Blue light waves all penetrate the body at different depths, and each wavelength seems to affect slightly different processes. As a general rule, Red light, for example, seems to stimulate energy and reduce inflammation in the skin and green light appears to stimulate circulation better and wound healing. But researchers are finding new benefits as they dig deeper. Blue hits the skin with the most energy but penetrates the skin the least, hence it seems to kill surface bacteria and viruses.
Infrared [IR] penetrates all the way down to the bones and sometimes through, so IR is the best choice for neuromuscular and deep tissue, organ repair. Within each color – there can be different healing signatures.
The general activity is that the cells are both detoxified and energized, and in so doing, they get healthier. The cells are the building blocks for the tissues organs and systems.
Heal the cells, and you heal the tissues organs and systems.
While there are over 500 peer-reviewed studies with up to 30 studies now coming out each month; the main effects that researchers seem to be sharing boils down to 4 cellular processes:
1. Inflammation— A reduction in oxidative stress and inflammation has been shown in nearly every study, and this seems to be the most recognized cellular benefit – Inflammation is the leading cause of disease, including cancer, stroke, diabetes, arthritis, fibromyalgia, heart disease, Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s disease. A full body system, like you’ll find in the Regenus Center at Core Therapies, treats the entire body – the largest organ, your skin and the largest mass, your muscles. The whole body is illuminated by the system using the same energies, shown effective in 30 years of research.
Free of side effects, the benefits accumulate. You Just Get Better.
2. Reduce Toxicity- Toxic threshold is a point whereby the body is overloaded with its ability to process internal and external toxicity. That threshold is the point where most naturopath and integrative medical doctors suggest disease originates. What we want for peak performance is to minimize toxins and optimize nutrients and energy.
Photobiomodulation seems to aid in detoxifying the body of waste and free radicals. Adding a multiwave system to a full body chamber, might prove to reduce toxicity in different ways, at different cellular depths, and present different healing signatures that reduce the energy the body dedicates to fighting over toxicity and reallocates it towards performance.
Think of your body like a 1000-watt light bulb. You have 1000 watts available to manage trillions of processes. Stress and anxiety might steal 100 watts from that total, and it can cause inflammation. Environmental and food toxicity can cause LGS (leaky gut syndrome) which escalates into cellular toxicity and inflammation which might steal another 200 watts. Even something as simple as desire consumes energy. The brain, which consumes most of the power of the body, dedicates energy to focus on what you want.
The focus of full body multiwave Photobiomodulation is to create detoxification and energy production throughout the entire body in as many ways as we can and for as much of the body as we can.
The benefits accumulate and You Get Better.
3. An increase in cellular energy – The current theory of aging centers on the dysfunction of the energy-producing mitochondria. The older we get, the more oxidative stress we accumulate, and the more damaged our mitochondria become. Mitochondria are in a cell like a motor is in a car. ATP is like Fuel. The respiratory chain inside the mitochondria is kind of like the fuel pump, fuel line and fuel injectors of a vehicle.
So, imagine a 4-cylinder motor in a car with 250,000 miles on it. Things go wrong with the engine; the fuel pumps go out, the fuel lines get clogged, and it stops being able to use the gasoline.
Photobiomodulation is kind of like cleaning up the fuel system and replacing the motor with a brand new V8. The increase in energy production coupled with the reduction of oxidative stress and inflammation. This new healthy energy trickles down into the tissues, organs, and systems. These side effects are all positive. You just get better. You have less toxicity to fight, less inflammation, and more energy to live.
You just get better – all the effects are good.
4. Increased circulation – Photobiomodulation seems to stimulate the angiogenesis of new arteries which improves the flow of nutrients to the cells. Now your cells are fed with not just energy, but nutrients and done so within a less toxic cellular environment.
You just get better – the side effects are good
An arthritis patient may, for example, find that Photobiomodulation reduces pain. At the same time, they may see that their skin starts to look better. That sprained knee that happened to fall off the step seems to be gone. And they are sleeping better and waking up more refreshed because of better assimilation of ATP.
Traditional medicine treats toxic threshold with toxic chemicals or procedures. While it may alleviate some nasty symptoms, the additional toxicity wears on the body. What we ultimately want is to feed and energize the cells while we reduce toxicity. Photobiomodulation seems to do this.
You get better, and the side effects are good!
