Photostimulation Effects
In Europe, during the 1960’s, it was discovered that certain monochromatic single-wavelength light beams had an excellent therapeutic effect on afflicted cell tissue. This occurs through a process called Photo-stimulation. Various single-wave- lengths in the red and infrared color spectrums (630 to 950 nanometers) have been used extensively because they fall within the cellular frequency range of biological tissue.

However, the most widely used is the 660 nanometer red wavelength, which appears to be the most effective, as it is closer to the actual resonance frequency of the healthy cell. A single light wave is essential, because the cell tissue will not respond if more than one wavelength is present.

Depending upon whether the light beam is continuous or pulsed (turned on and off very rapidly), the single-wavelength light photostimulates the afflicted cell tissue differently. Continuous light sedates the tissue, resulting in relief of pain, relaxation of tense muscles and reduced swelling. This is accomplished by an increase in cellular blood flow (which causes a warm feeling deep within the tissue) and by actual physical tissue relaxation.

Pulsed light stimulates the DNA within the afflicted cell, causing the cell to produce an increased quantity of protein and calcium, which results in an accelerated healing of the tissue from 3 to 5 times faster than normal.

To reach the problem areas, the light beam can either be applied directly to the skin, where it penetrates about one-inch into the soft tissue, or for deeper penetration into the body, it can be applied to the acupuncture points.

A single-wavelength light beam will travel through the body’s acupuncture meridian channels like an optical fiber, to reach internal areas within the body. The light also acts as an extremely effective acupuncture-point stimulator device. Therefore, using a combination of both direct application and acupuncture/acupressure-point techniques, any problem area within your body may be reached by the light.

Methods of Production
There are only two available methods of producing this desired monochromatic single wavelength light beam without introducing other wavelengths or impurities. The first is with a "Laser" and the second is with a "Light-Emitting Diode" (LED). The choice of material used in the construction of both devices determines which specific wavelength is produced. Both devices produce a monochromatic singe-wavelength, but the laser produces coherent light (in phase) while LED’s provide non-coherent light (out of phase).

This type of laser uses very low-power, compared to the normal high-power lasers used in surgery and advanced technology applications. These are referred to as soft, cold or weak lasers, and they produce only enough light power to stimulate damaged cell tissue. Soft lasers have been well researched and used over the past 25 years. They are available in many clinics, hospitals and doctors’ offices around the world. The most extensively published uses have been for relief of pain, accelerated healing of wounds, treatment of skin conditions, wrinkle removal and acupuncture-point stimulation.

Soft-lasers are not readily available for home use. They are expensive and are approved for use only by a licensed physician, health professional or clinical technician. They can be harmful if overused or if they come into contact with the eyes. Therefore, individuals must go to a licensed health practitioner if they desire treatment with a “soft-laser”.

LEDs... A Do-It-Yourself Method
Today however, thanks to the technological development LEDs, an individual may take advantage of this phototherapy concept in the home. LEDs have changed from a simple 15-millicandle indicator light used in electronic equipment, to the brighter (15,000-millicandle) light now used in medical applications. Photostimulation by an LED unit is now 90% as effective as the soft laser unit. This means, for example, that arthritis pain which is relieved by a soft-laser in 6 minutes would be relieved by an LED unit in about 7 minutes!

The advantages of using LEDs is tremendous. The cost of LEDs is one-tenth of the cost of soft lasers and their life-expectancy is 20 times longer (100,000 hours of use). Better yet, an LED is completely harmless, cannot be overused, has no side effects and can even be used on the eyes. Therefore, you can do nothing wrong with it! This allows the LED phototherapy unit to be used on a much wider range of problems than the soft-laser.

The results show that when using photostimulation on afflicted cell tissue, it is the monochromatic single-wavelength feature that is more important to cellular response than is the coherent (laser) or noncoherent (LED) aspect of light. The simplest way to use this photostimulation technology is to acquire a portable LED phototherapy unit from a manufacturer or distributor. The least expensive type would be battery-operated. It should have a 660 nanometer LED with a brightness of 6,000 - 8,000 millicandles and both a continuous and a pulsed light beam option. The recommendation for the pulse rate is 235 - 295 cycles per second. The phototherapy unit should also have a money-back period for you to treat it.
