Photobiomodulation – light as a basic nutrient for your body
The world of technology is constantly moving forward, the the area of therapy and treatment is no different. Because of the increased amount of sedentary indoor work, our bodies receive less and less energy from daylight. With the help of photobiomodulation, you can supply your body with the photons it uses for many metabolic processes.
Through light to health
Light therapy, or photobiomodulation, uses red and near-infrared light, as well as other colour spectra, to reduce pain and inflammation, and improve cellular energy production. It’s a different treatment option, which focuses on the causes of health problems, rather than only on the symptoms. It’s a non-invasive, drug-free therapy that addresses the root cause of the pain by stimulating the body’s own healing mechanisms, without side effects or secondary problems.
Photobiomodulation therapy works at a cellular level, in your mitochondria. These are the cells‘ engines, which produce ATP (adenosine triphosphate), stimulate cellular respiration, break down nitric oxide bonds, and allow hydrogen and water to go through the entire metabolic process. Very simply, we can say that the more efficiently the cells work, the better your body feels.
How does it all work?
Therapeutic photobiomodulation supplies radiation to your skin using specific wavelengths that are beneficial for the body. It can be overall therapy using the Nuovo LED bed, or a local effect via LED panels, a photobiomodulation pad or the Nuovo Spektrum laser device.
A number of studies show a wide range of positive effects on the skin, inflammation, joint pain, sleep quality, sexual performance, immunity, the thyroid gland etc. Light therapy is more and more often used as part of sports training, because it restores proper joint function, supports muscle regeneration and improves physical performance. We also recommend the use of light therapy to treat skin problems such as acne and psoriasis, or for skin rejuvenation. It accelerates the fusion of bone fractures.
Effect of photobiomodulation on the human body
We can summarise the benefits of light therapy in three basic effects:
The therapy supports and accelerates the restoration of cellular metabolism, and regeneration. You feel more vital and healthy overall.
Light energy reduces the sensitivity of nerve cells in the area to which photobiomodulation is applied. It stimulates the excretion of so-called endogenous opiates, which help reduce pain.
Natural mechanisms that fight inflammation are activated. Thanks to the stimulation of the immune system and blood circulation, the body can more effectively break down and expel harmful substances.
From the cell to the entire organism
Photobiomodulation therapy works at different levels:
SUBCELLULAR – collagen and protein synthesis, and oxygen exchange, are accelerated.
CELLULAR – the potential of cells‘ electrical fields increases, and tissue is revived.
TISSUE – the pH value of intercellular fluid changes.
ORGANS – their function is harmonised thanks to proper blood circulation.
ORGANISM – the comprehensive laser therapy process leads to the overall improvement of health and mental well-being.
One type of therapy for a wide range of effects
Photobiomodulation isn‘t a miracle, but therapy based on the basic principles of the functioning of the human body. We recommend integrating it into your daily life if you want help in the following areas:
- Athletic performance regeneration
- Skin, hair and nail health
- Sleep and sexual performance optimisation
- Functional, pain-free musculoskeletal system
- Mental well-being and creativity
- Pain and inflammation reduction
