How Light Therapy Can Help

Updated: Jan 25

December 21st, the year’s shortest day, reminds us that natural sunlight (or the lack of it) significantly impacts our mental and physical health. Natural sunlight enriches us with Vitamin D. It is necessary for maintaining healthy bones and a robust immune system. Try to find a way to get outside or allow more of it through the windows.

How Light Therapy Can Help

If you can’t get enough natural light, supplement with the right kinds of artificial light, such as RED light (660NM), NIR (850NM) light or BLUE light (450NM), to prevent Infections. Light and colour affect us beyond vision. The discovery of the non-image-forming visual pathway of sunlight has caused research into how we respond, physiologically and psychologically, to colour. Red Light also helps the body’s circadian system. Using a red light before sleep or putting one by the bed allows the user to sleep better. This knowledge has resulted from near-infrared, red, blue and green LED technology. Vitamin D supplements are also another option. Red light helps with rejuvenating and healing skin. It also helps speed up drying nail polish. The polish stays on longer as well. Near-infrared light helps speed up the healing of muscles, tendons and bones. BLUE light helps with killing infections that cause acne. Green light helps with fading sunspots.

However, it’s essential to use these light sources as the manufacturer recommends to ensure they are safe and effective.

Photosensitive products and medications can cause side effects. Additionally, it’s always a good idea to consult a medically trained professional before starting any new supplement or treatment regimen.
