The Prism Light Pod may calm stress and reduce PTSD. Long-term stress can prove to be more than just a mental issue. From headaches to stomach disorders to depression – even very serious issues like stroke and heart disease can come as a result of stress.
When you are placed in a stressful situation, specific stress hormones rush into your bloodstream leading to an increase in heart rate, blood pressure and glucose levels. This is helpful in emergency situations, but having this “rush” for extended periods of time can be dangerous and make you susceptible to the issues mentioned previously.
According to Healthline, if your stress response doesn’t stop firing, and these stress levels stay elevated far longer than is necessary for survival, it can take a toll on your health. Chronic stress can cause a variety of symptoms and affect your overall well-being. Some symptoms of chronic stress are:
- Weight gain
- Depressed immune function
- Difficulty concentrating
- High blood pressure which can contribute to a stroke or heart attack
- High blood sugar
How to cope with stress according to the CDC:
- Take breaks from watching, reading, or listening to news stories.
- Take care of yourself. Eat healthy, exercise, get plenty of sleep, and give yourself a break if you feel stressed out.
- Get plenty of sleep.
- Make time to unwind.
- Recognize when you need more help. Talk to a psychologist, social worker, or professional counselor.
Evidence of Photobiomodulation (red light therapy) for Mental Health and PTSD relief
“We examined the use of near-infrared and red radiation (photobiomodulation, PBM) for treating major depressive disorder (MDD). … Research has demonstrated a correlation between MDD and vulnerability to oxidative stress. … Oxidative stress may be an effective target for antidepressant treatments.” (NIH)
“In addition, we used PubMed to find articles that examine the link between PBM and relevant biological processes including metabolism, inflammation, oxidative stress, and neurogenesis. Studies suggest the processes aforementioned are potentially effective targets for PBM to treat depression.” (NIH)
“One of the two cases with chronic TBI [traumatic brain injury] reported by Naeser et al. was a 52-year-old veteran with comorbid PTSD. After few months of treatment with transcranial PBM, she noticed improvement in self-awareness and self-regulation in both social and work milieus. These benefits were attributed to improved sleep and reduced impulsivity, irritation and anger, consistent with common PTSD symptoms. After 4 months of treatment her medical disability was discontinued and she returned to her prior work.” (NIH)
