Influence of Low Intensity Light Waves on Neuronal based Activities in TBI Patient
Abstract: Infrared light therapy is a form of light therapy, which involves getting exposed to sufficient intensity of infrared light to experience health benefits. NIR light therapy involves shining concentrated wavelengths of light between 810nm to 850nm onto bare skin. The treatment is based on the irradiance and radiance factors of the light photons interacting with light - sensitive molecules within each cell. As NIR light photons reach these molecules, this stimulates the cells? mitochondria to produce more adenosine triphosphate (ATP), which fuels cellular energy production. This, in turn, energizes all cells irradiated by the light. Cell - protecting factors such as antioxidants are released to counteract cell degeneration from inflammation. And, the cells are able to perform their functions more efficiently, including repair and regeneration. This heightened functionality has anti - aging benefits as well as the ability to treat the underlying causes of many diseases and disorders. The infrared spectrum is between 700 nm to 0.1 mm in wavelength, which can be divided into near, mid, and far - infrared spectrum. The longer the wavelength, the lower the frequency and the further the light can penetrate tissues. Different kinds of infrared wavelengths have different health benefits. NIR - Near - infrared light, with wavelengths between 700 - 1400 nm, generates the most heat but does not penetrate deep into human tissues. In addition, the 760 - 895 nm range of infrared light can stimulate the mitochondria function, which can increase metabolism, improve tissue repair, and reduce inflammation9, 10. mNIR - Mid - infrared light, with wavelengths between 1400 - 3000 nm. It penetrates deeper than near - infrared light and generates more heat than far - infrared light. Mid - infrared light can help expand blood vessels and increase circulation so that blood can reach injured or inflamed areas of the body. Far - infrared light, with wavelengths between 3000 nm - 0.1 mm. Far infrared penetrates deepest into the tissues. Its health benefits come from both generating heat and other properties. Far - infrared light can potently reduce inflammation and oxidative stress. It increases circulation, improves blood vessel and heart functions, reduces pain and fatigue, and normalizes blood pressure.
