In our episode we go over:
- How and why Scott Nelson started working with light therapy and created the Joovv device he has now
- The 2,000+ studies on using light and photobiomodulation as a therapy
- The work that Dr. Michael Hamblin from Harvard has done regarding photobiomodulation
- The many benefits of low level laser light therapy including: muscle recovery, testosterone production, wrinkle reduction, cognitive improvement, and mitochondrial improvement to name a few
- How photobiomodulation works and the science behind what is actually happening inside the body and cells
- The 600 nanometers to 1,000 nanometers range of wavelengths and why this is the sweet spot for red and infrared light therapy
- Cytochrome C Oxidase (CCO) and the role this enzyme plays in helping oxygen bind with NADH to form hydrogen ions that produce ATP Synthase which then goes on to produce ATP (energy)
- The relationship CCO plays with nitric oxide and why when using light therapy you sometimes feel a pump (from the release of nitric oxide) in your body similar to working out
- Why light is so important for our energy sources and why human beings use light in a similar way as plants
- How our body metabolizes different lights including blue lights, red lights, near infrared lights, green lights, yellows, and many others
- Using red light therapy before bed and why it can help you sleep better (and why I’ve been using this before bed myself lately)
- The difference between infrared sauna lights and low level laser therapy lights and why sauna lights don’t do much in terms of photobiomodulation
- The slight differences between red and infrared lights and what they do inside the body
- How to use a light therapy device in terms of how long you should use it for each time, how many days out of the week, how close you should be to it, and where to place it
- Whether or not you can burn yourself using these light therapy devices and whether or not there are side effects in overusing them
- The future potential for laser light therapy and the conditions it one day may be able to heal
