Anti-Aging Support Using Near-Infrared Exposure

As young children, we often can’t wait to grow up. We eagerly anticipate that next birthday and the added responsibilities that come with it. However, at a certain point, that excitement for time to speed up eventually turns into a desire for it to slow down and for the aging process to halt. While the fountain of youth has yet to be discovered, advances in technology continue to provide ways to slow or even reverse the signs of aging. One such advancement is that of photobiomodulation, or low-level laser therapy.

What is Photobiomodulation?

So what exactly is photobiomodulation? This type of therapy employs non-ionizing electromagnetic energy to elicit certain photochemical changes within the structure of the cell. This process typically employs low-level lasers or light-emitting diodes (LED’s) at a certain wavelength on the surface of the body.

Mitochondria found within the cell respond quite well to this type of treatment. This occurs because they contain an enzyme called cytochrome oxidase c, which is a chromophore that will receive photonic energy of a certain wavelength when not performing at an adequate level.

The Effects of Red and Near-Infrared Exposure

One of the most common photobiomodulation therapies involves using red or near-infrared exposure, specifically in the anti-aging process. First, this treatment affects the body at the cellular level. It helps the mitochondria create ATP, or fuel, within the body and allows it to use this fuel more efficiently.

In turn, this has a great impact on weight loss and even contouring of the body. In one study, individuals who underwent low-level laser therapy showed a significant decrease in inches around their waist, hips, and thighs. It has also been known to positively affect the production of collagen and elastin providing a decrease in fine lines and wrinkles and giving a younger-looking appearance.

Impacting the Brain

Studies are also beginning to show that low-level laser therapy may have an anti-aging effect on the brain. During a study performed on mice, researchers found that mid-infrared exposure provided improved learning and memory capabilities, improved gut microbiota, and reduced amyloid-B plaque on the brain.

Red-Red360

A form of low-level laser therapy rising in popularity to impair the aging process is that of Red-Red360. Red-Red360 is an LED-based light therapy that provides both red and infrared light through high-powered mount microchips placed on a soft pad. It is non-invasive, comfortable, and easy to use.

The pads form around any part of the body the client wishes to target and the session is quick and painless with no downtime. Like other low-level laser therapies, the Red light therapy stimulates the fat cell walls to become permeable so the fluids inside are able to be released. Thus, it leaves the fat cell fully intact to then continue to do its job to store fat as the body needs it. While the light is strong enough to promote these changes, it will not damage tissue like laser lights, freezing, ultrasounds, and radio frequencies used in other therapies.

Try a Different Approach

So if you have been looking to improve your appearance without going under the knife, it may be time to look at photobiomodulation. These procedures work from the inside out and rather than investing in temporary, harmful therapies treat your body to something that will provide positive, long-lasting changes.

Distress or Chronic Stress

Distress or chronic stress is uncontrollable, prolonged, or overwhelming stress. Once stress becomes distress, the body manages to survive though not always to thrive. For example, when faced with periods of chronic stress, the body’s immune system function is lowered, and the digestive, excretory, and reproductive systems no longer function the way they should. In a state of distress, the cells of the immune system (and other body systems) are unable to respond normally and produce levels of inflammation which increase the risk of further health issues.

Homeostasis

Homeostasis refers to your body’s ability to regulate itself and maintain a comparatively stable internal environment despite external and internal conditions and events.

Your body is designed to be in a state of homeostasis, where all the systems within are functioning optimally.

Stressor

Stressor is anything that is perceived by the body as challenging, threatening or demanding.

Health Story

In the context of My Wellbeing Compass, your “Health Story” represents the combination of your dis-eases, conditions, symptoms and the history that binds them together. It is multi-layered and multi-dimensional. Unearthing and resolving the root causes at the core of your Health Story is the only way to truly rewrite this Story.

Natural Self-repair Mechanisms

The body is made up of intelligent, living cells that are dynamically connected. They communicate and just know what to do and when to do it in any given situation. They grow, replicate, repair, and age. Every 90 days, the body has a new bloodstream; every year, it manufactures billions of new cells; colon cells refresh every 4 days; the skin is entirely regenerated every 2-3 weeks; white blood cells regenerate in about 1 year; the liver renews itself at least once every 2 years; and the skeleton replaces its cells entirely every 10 years.

You are an incredibly complex, interactive, and dynamic living organism that is well-equipped with self-repair mechanisms that can fight infections, eliminate toxins, fix damaged DNA, destroy cancer cells, and even slow down aging.

This natural self-healing ability (also referred to as cellular intelligence or body’s innate intelligence) explains spontaneous remissions from seemingly “incurable” diseases.
