Red Light for Beginners

Red Light for Beginners

As we first approach red light for health, we will likely run into several main questions.

Can something as simple as light really heal us?

Which type of light is best?

How do we properly and safely get started?

If you’ve ever stepped into the sunlight and noticed it felt good, you may be surprised to learn why. Just like plants use the sun to generate energy, most animals use similar mechanisms to increase or enhance their own energy production. As energy is increased, so are┬ámaintenance tasks, which allow us to feel less sluggish.

Figuring out which light is best is still stuck between the grasps of science and nature. Luckily we have a ton of research available on light therapy, unfortunately, most of it is attached to specific wavelengths, allowing certain techniques & technology to be patented. As with many other profit generating products, the science supports technology while ignoring the natural methods it’s based on. Fortunately when it comes to getting started, the plain old incandescent bulbs have proved themselves safe and efficient enough to at least get us started before we find time to dig into the technological data.

As with any new health related information, it’s always best to consult your doctor before trying anything new. Applying red light to a body of cells that are starving for certain nutrients, could be similar to taking an old car out on the highway without checking the safety of certain important components. If our body is low on electrolytes, applying red light could potentially deplete them even further. As long as our doctor agrees with the potential for benefits, and we’re providing our body with good nutrition, getting started is simple. Just like a reptile or a brood of chickens, all we need is a quality bulb and a safe way to mount it and aim it at ourselves.
