One important thing that needs to be kept running smoothly if your body is to stay as close to homeostasis as possible is the clearance of toxins, pathogens, and metabolic byproducts from your system in a timely fashion.
Red light therapy can help with reducing oxidative stress, boosting the immune system and stimulating the lymphatic system to detoxify.
When cells are stressed, their mitochondria (the powerhouses of the cell) begin to malfunction. One reason is due to a build up of nitric oxide (NO) or free radicals, which blocks oxygen use by mitochondria and ATP (energy) production. High NO and low ATP levels result in something called oxidative stress
Oxidative stress leads to increased inflammation, which will further decrease production of ATP. This results in “tired cells” that cannot run like they should.
An excess of free radicals, and therefore a potential for lasting damage, can be a result of several environmental factors, like pollution, ozone, radiation, certain chemicals and pesticides, and cigarette smoke. Dietary factors and stress can also play a role in excess free radicals. One way to manage oxidative stress is by receiving whole-body red and near-infrared light therapy.
Red and near-infrared wavelengths of light promote ATP production, which boosts energy transport within cells, leading to increased cell proliferation. This boost in the body’s natural healing process helps reduce inflammation and promotes healing of damaged tissue.
Detox from Radiation Treatment
In terms of radiation, even though most radiation treatments aim to treat local parts of your body, radiation can damage unwanted DNA that aren’t a part of cancer cells. You can do a multitude of things to detox your body after radiation and help remove radioactive particles that are in your tissues after receiving radiation treatment.
Whole-Body Red Light Therapy
Oxidative stress is the imbalance between the production of reactive oxygen species (free radicals) and antioxidant defenses. Oxidative stress can lead to fatigue, depressed moods and lead to cellular and tissue damage. Whole-body red light therapy penetrates your body and mind at a molecular level and can help restore damaged cells to keep you feeling energetic and positive.
