What is Polychromatic LED Therapy?

Light is an essential nutrient of life. Using the sun’s light as therapy dates back thousands of years. Modern science has evolved the engineered delivery of the beneficial wavelengths (colors) of the sun’s light into low-level light therapy (LLLT) technology. Originally developed by NASA for astronauts who could become injured or ill on long-term space missions, low-level-light therapy is used today as a safe and natural method of treating a variety of skin and pain conditions such as skin conditions, anti-aging, and pain. Biolife Health Center uses LED light therapy by itself or in conjunction with sound and audio-visual entrainment (AVE) therapy, biofeedback, neurofeedback, and other modalities if needed. 

 

Cleared by the FDA for pain management and skincare, BioLife Health Center Polychromatic LED Technology uses light energy to improve cellular health by accelerating the repair and replenishment of compromised tissue cells. It mimics a natural photobiochemical reaction process to deliver safe, UV-free low-level light energy through high-intensity LED devices. Use Polychromatic LED Technology to regain and maintain your body’s natural vitality without the concern of dangerous side effects often associated with drugs and topicals.

What is low-level light therapy?

 

Low-level light therapy is the application of specific wavelengths of light energy to tissue to obtain therapeutic benefits. The energy delivered is then used to improve cellular performance. Low-level light therapy can be delivered through light-emitting diode (LED) devices or cold lasers. The treatment is non-invasive, painless, requires no recovery time, and can be used on all skin types.

 

Cells absorb particles of light (photons) and transform their energy into adenosine triphosphate (ATP), a form of energy that cells utilize. The resulting elevation of ATP is then used to power metabolic processes; synthesize DNA, RNA, proteins, enzymes, and other products needed to repair or regenerate cell components; foster mitosis or cell proliferation; and restore homeostasis. Simply put, the LED light source provides compromised cells with added energy so the performance of the cell is enhanced. For example, fibroblast cells will increase collagen and elastin production in connective tissue.

 

How does red LED and near-infrared light therapy work?

 

With red light therapy, you expose your skin to a lamp, device, or laser with a red light. A part of your cells called mitochondria, sometimes called the “power generators” of your cells, soak it up and make more energy. Some experts think this helps cells repair themselves and become healthier. This spurs healing in skin and muscle tissue.

 

Red light therapy uses very low levels of heat and doesn’t hurt or burn the skin. It’s not the same type of light used in tanning booths, and it doesn’t expose your skin to damaging UV rays.

 

Scientific Evidence

 

Scientists have confirmed that the application of low-level light therapy (LLLT) triggers beneficial cell activity. “Photobiomodulation” (PBM) is the newly established (2016) Medical Science Heading (MeSH keyword) used by the National Institute of Health published research database to describe this emerging science. Research has shown that phototherapy can increase circulation, accelerate tissue repair, kill acne bacteria, decrease inflammation, improve skin tone, texture, and clarity, as well as ease muscle and joint pain, stiffness, spasm, and arthritis.

 

This mechanism of action is a photo-chemical response, not a heat/thermal response, therefore the tissue is safe from thermal damage making the InLight Medical systems both safe and effective.

TESTIMONIALS

“It works its magic on the body by the use of gentle red light phototherapy. The phototherapy not only gets rid of unwanted fat but it also provides pain relief and healing. This type of therapy drains toxins from fat cells in addition to burning calories. You will only need 20 minutes before you can feel the positive results.”

 

J.W.

" At first I was skeptical but I was willing to try anything just to relieve my arthritis. I am off my medication because I am having issues with my kidney. This treatment helped me big time. Thank you. This changed everything for me.”

 

Brandon H.

“I have been really fat since I was 20 years old. Now I am 28 years old. I have suffered so many times because of health conditions. I have had high blood pressure and difficulty in physical activities. But I am really happy that I found this wrap. It has been a really effective way for me to lose bodyweight really really fast. I have lost 176 pounds in a year because of this. I would definitely recommend it"

 

Dodie M.

“I started to investigate the red-light phototherapy treatment, and this has to be the easiest and most comfortable way to use it. I’ve had some of my cellulite and stretch marks for 15 years, and I’ve tried many creams and lotions, but nothing has been as effective as this. I implemented a good diet, drinking water, and using the Lipo wrap daily, and I’ve been feeling rejuvenated and light.”

  • What is Biofeedback?
    Biofeedback is a process that enables an individual to learn how to change physiological activity for the purposes of improving health and performance. Precise instruments measure physiological activity such as brainwaves, heart function, breathing, muscle activity, and skin temperature. These instruments rapidly and accurately “feedback” information to the user. The presentation of this information — often in conjunction with changes in thinking, emotions, and behavior — supports desired physiological changes. Over time, these changes can endure without continued use of an instrument.
  • What conditions are helped by Biofeedback training?
    Successful outcomes, not limited to those listed below, have been reported by Neurofeedback Practitioners for: ADD/ADHD, addictions. anger, anxiety, autism, chronic fatigue, chronic pain, closed head injuries, concentration, depression, headaches and migraines, learning disorders, obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD), pain management, reading skills, seizure disorders, sleep disorders and stroke recovery. Biofeedback has also proven effective when used for Peak Performance Training, such as developing memory skills, focusing abilities, and increasing concentration.
  • What childhood conditions is Biofeedback successful in treating?
    Biofeedback has been used to treat seizures and subclinical seizure activity, problems of attention and learning, bipolar disorder, autistic spectrum, and other conditions.
  • Why does Biofeedback work?
    The brain is amazingly adaptable. It is capable of making adjustments to improve its own performance if given cues about what to change. When the brain is regulating itself well and is alert and attentive, brainwaves (EEG) show particular patterns. We challenge the brain to maintain this “high-performance” alert and active state. Gradually, after 20 or more training sessions, the brain learns to stay at this high-performance state for longer periods of time and to retain these new skills.
  • Do the effects of Biofeedback training really last?
    If the problem being addressed is one of brain dysregulation, then the answer is yes, and that covers a lot of ground. Biofeedback involves learning by the brain and if that brings order out of disorder, the brain will continue to use its new capabilities, and thus reinforce them.
  • How is Biofeedback training done?
    At a training session, sensors are placed on your body. The sensors pick up information on your brain’s and body activity at very specific locations. (No electricity enters your brain. The sensors merely read information from the brain and body and relay it to the Practitioner’s computer.) You then sit back in a comfortable chair as you watch a computer monitor that displays a computer game, a movie, a bar graph, music, sounds or simply colors that change as your brainwaves change. The Practitioner monitors your brainwaves and sets training parameters which are based upon information obtained during your comprehensive intake process. This process gives your brain instantaneous feedback about its performance during the training session. On a subconscious level it begins to “work out” and It begins to produce more of the helpful type of brainwave patterns and less of those that are correlated with the symptoms you wish to address. With practice, your brain learns new patterns. Desirable neuronal pathways are strengthened and new pathways are created.
  • How long do sessions last?
    Each session takes between 45 and 60 minutes. The actual training period lasts a maximum of 30 minutes. Additional time is needed beforehand for sensor placement and adjustment. We also speak with our clients briefly before and after each training session to monitor how things are progressing. We reserve 60 minutes for each client to ensure that no one is rushed and that there will be time to discuss the results you are experiencing.
  • How many sessions will I need?
    Results from Biofeedback training are seen gradually, over time. Initial progress can be seen within 10 sessions for most conditions. A typical treatment program consists of between 15 and 30 sessions, depending upon the conditions being addressed, with the average being 15 sessions. Current understanding among Biofeedback providers is that it takes a minimum of 20 sessions for learning to be consolidated so the client can maintain the gains that have been made. Sometimes a client will complete 20 sessions, take a year off, and then return to complete training.
  • How frequent should the training session be?
    When starting neurofeedback training, sessions should be regular and frequent at two or three (or more) sessions per week. As learning begins to consolidate, the pace can be reduced.
  • What happens if Biofeedback clients are taking medication?
    With successful Neurofeedback / EEG Biofeedback training, the medications targeting brain function may very well no longer be needed, or they may be needed at lower dosages, as the brain takes over more of the role of regulating itself.
  • What is the research on Biofeedback?
    Research continues to show that biofeedback therapy training, results in patients learning to control their own brain activity, while effectively “retraining” their own brain waves toward healthier patterns. Since its inception in the 1960s biofeedback has been rigorously studied. A recent review of the term biofeedback on the National Institute of Health’s database ‘PubMed’ reported that Biofeedback has gained attention in recent years showing only 948 articles and peered-reviewed research published between 1990 and 1995, and 2,267 published since 2010 to present.

  • What is Neuroplasticity and how Biofeedback plays a role?
    Historically the brain was seen as hard wired with each area having its own function; when that area was injured the function was lost. Today the concept of neuroplasticity has replaced the hard wired model. Neuroplasticity refers to changes in neural pathways and synapses which are due to changes in behavior, environment and neural processes, as well as changes resulting from bodily injury. Neuroplasticity occurs on a variety of levels ranging from cellular changes due to learning to large-scale changes involved in cortical remapping in response to injury. The role of neuroplasticity is widely recognized in healthy development, learning, memory and recovery from brain damage, all from which Biofeedback can help.
