What role can LED light treatment play in prevention and treatment of thyroid/low metabolism problems?
Today’s post comes to you from an article on “Red-light-Man.com” entitled “Light therapy improves hypothyroidism” According to this article both Red & infrared light (600-1000nm) help metabolism in the body on several different levels particularly with regard to the production of thyroid hormones. The article states that red or infrared light from an LED source (600-950nm) can be applied to the thyroid gland to treat hypothyroid states. Thyroid hormone levels are improved in every study.
The article goes on to explain that “hypothyroidism is the state of low energy production in the entire body as a result of low thyroid hormone activity. Applying LED light directly to the thyroid gland improves production of the hormones, which improving local energy availability, increasing natural thyroid hormone production by the gland again”.
Further the article points out that “LED light treatment prevents nitric oxide poisoning, and resulting stress, by removing it from mitochondria. In this way, the LED light can be thought of as ‘protective negation of stress’. It simply allowing your cells’ mitochondria to work properly by alleviating the dampening effects of stress, red & infrared light (600-1000nm) help metabolism in the body on several different levels, similarly to supplementing thyroid hormones but also complementary to it.” The author points out several benefits of LED light:
- Light therapy directly on the neck is highly effective for thyroid treatment(Höfling et al., 2010,2012,2013. Azevedo LH et al., 2005. Вера Александровна, 2010. Gopkalova, I. 2010.
- Light therapy directly on the neck breaks this vicious cycle, presumably by improving local energy availability
- Alongside systemic benefits from thyroid exposure, applying light anywhere on the body also gives systemic benefits, via the blood (Ihsan FR, 2005. Rodrigo SM et al., 2009. Leal Junior EC et al., 2010).
- Applying red light to specific areas of the body gives a more intense local boost. This is best shown by studies of light therapy on skin disorders, wounds and infections, where healing time is dramatically reduced by red or infrared light (J. Ty Hopkins et al., 2004. Avci et al., 2013, Mao HS, 2012. Percival SL, 2015. da Silva JP, 2010. Gupta A, 2014. Güngörmüş M, 2009).
What does ThinU® provide?
ThinU® provides LED light (635nm) treatments with a very high level of energy 72,000 mw which can treat up to 60% of total body in a single 20-minute session which would take 2 to 3 treatment sessions with other competing LED systems. The system includes a large face mask that contains 281 LED diode arrays. The unique design of the face mask that covers both face and neck all at the same time.
The benefit of the LED light treatment is not only the effectiveness of fat reduction, but also, it stimulates the lymphatic system, improves thyroid hormone level. It addresses the weight issue in a holistic, safe, effective and sustainable way!
