7 views

Research done by NASA in conjunction with the University of Alabama at Birmingham Hospital has shown that Red Light technology can successfully reduce symptoms experienced by cancer patients, including painful side effects caused from radiation or chemotherapy. Using LED Red Light & Near Infrared Light devices has been shown to release long wavelength energy in the form of photons that stimulate cells to aid in healing. Light Therapy also boosts the immune system, very important to anyone with Cancer or receiving Cancer treatment.

NASA tested whether Red Light Therapy could treat oral mucositis in cancer patients, a very common and painful side effect of chemotherapy and radiation, and concluded that 96 percent of patients experienced improvement in pain as a result of the treatment. Researchers stated, “The Light Therapy was well tolerated with no adverse affects to bone marrow and stem cell transplant patients. Similar Red Light Therapy is also now being utilized for the treatment of pediatric brain tumors, slow-healing wounds or infections, diabetic skin ulcers, and serious burns.
