12 Benefits of Red Light Therapy -The Gift of a Pain-Free Life

There are so many conditions, both chronic and acute, that may be causing you pain. Some may be hereditary, so you’ve seen members of your close family suffer from them for most of your life, and now you may be facing the same fate.

Some conditions are visible to others, such as rosacea, eczema, psoriasis and acne scars, and the pain in these cases can be as much emotional in nature as they are physical. This affects your confidence and enthusiasm to take on life’s challenges without hesitation.

The conditions that are not obvious to those around you might be causing you just as much distress though. Fibromyalgia, a chronic pain condition that traditionally gets managed with medication, can be quite debilitating, isolating you from your circle of friends and resulting in secondary conditions such as depression.

Depression, in itself, can take a variety of forms. Depression is an acknowledged mental illness and it can affect every area of your life, even permanently.

The management of pain is a challenging task. For some people, taking pain medication every day has all sorts of risks in that any chemical treatments for any condition usually have side effects. Painkillers can also be addictive and can damage your organs over a long period of time.

So, if you could manage your condition, or chronic pain, with a therapy that is not chemical in nature, is not addictive, and has very little, if any, side effects, would you consider it?

You probably would, especially if you also considered the costs of that therapy in comparison to the costs of taking other forms of medication in the long term.

This is why I would like to share with you what Red Light Therapy offers you, and why it is an alternative to exposing your body to chemical treatments and medications, and those benefits are listed here for your consideration.

There are a few different types of therapies that involve the use of light, and red light therapy is slightly different to infrared light therapy in that red light therapy is in the visible spectrum of light, so you can physically see the light that is being emitted onto your body.

​Why is using red light therapy better than conventional treatment methods?

The key reasons to use red light therapy rather than conventional treatment methods are:

  • Red Light Therapy is not specific to only one or two conditions, it can treat a variety of conditions, so it is a suitable treatment method for the whole family.
  • Red light therapy is not addictive as it has no chemical compound that the body can react to.
  • For most conditions, Red Light Therapy can be done in the privacy and comfort of your own home, and by you, with equipment that is relatively easy to find and affordable to buy.
  • Red Light Therapy gives the cells in the body what they need to start self-healing processes. The human body has tools to fight infection and heal damaged tissue, but sometimes these tools don’t work properly because we may have bad nutrition habits, or be unfit or be taking medication for chronic conditions that interfere with the proper functioning of the body. So the red light, in the simplest way of explaining it, adds the right frequency of energy to the cells of the body that then kick-start the body’s own natural defences against illness or injury. The Red Light Therapy is purely a catalyst that gets the body’s own functions working correctly to do what it was designed to do

What conditions benefit from Red Light Therapy?

This list is not exhaustive. As research into this form of therapy continues, the range of conditions it is found to be useful for grows all the time. What we do know at the moment is that it has both health and cosmetic benefits and that its use as a treatment is growing in popularity almost daily. The conditions for which this therapy is already proving useful are

This is a chronic pain condition with no known cure or cause. If you are a sufferer, you probably take a substantial amount of painkillers on a daily basis just to be able to function with some degree of normality. In most cases, a sufferer of fibromyalgia cannot function normally and the side effects of the painkillers results in not being able to perform certain types of work, which can negatively affect your entire quality of life. If I told you that Red Light Therapy might be the solution to your problem, I would not blame you for being sceptical, because I am sure you have heard and tried it all before. The truth is that this type of therapy has proved to be a worthwhile alternative to conventional painkillers in the treatment of this condition. Even if you don’t completely stop taking painkillers, red light therapy will most likely reduce the number of painkillers you take daily, which will cost you less money and leave you with less negative side effects and damage to other parts of your body.

How can something so simple be so effective?

The simplest way to describe the way red light therapy works is that the light moves as a wave directly into the cells of your body. The light is a form of concentrated energy and this causes an increase in blood flow to that particular area of the body. The additional blood flowing in that area brings oxygen and white blood cells with it, which gives the cells all they need to fight infection and literally heal themselves.

How does red light therapy work

Your cells work tirelessly, every moment of the day to ensure that your body is working in the best possible way. With extra energy from the red light lamp, your cells are more likely to heal, release toxins, and fight infections than they could do without the light, or in the presence of the chemicals from medication. This means that the condition or illness is being treated at its root cause, and is healing with more lasting results.

It reduces or even removes the need for taking painkillers on a regular basis, which reduces, in turn, the amount of work your organs and bodily systems need to do to keep your body functioning as normally as possible. Pain medication is made up of many different chemicals which all have some form of side effect that may be extremely harmful to your body. So while you may feel less pain, your body may be losing its ability to heal itself and may be storing harmful chemicals in your cells that could affect your health permanently in the long term. In recent years the deaths of some well-known celebrities have been caused by overdoses of painkillers, so it is no secret that these medications are harmful and possibly even deadly to you.

Taking painkillers daily will most certainly have long-term effects on you and your body, and eventually your life. From skin conditions to organ failure and even depression, you will have to deal with the consequences in one form or another.

A less obvious benefit to this type of therapy is that it replaces the need for certain types of surgery. All surgery has risks, from the exposure to anaesthesia to the risks of infection and sepsis, so surgery should always be considered only as an extreme last resort. Surgery also requires a long period of recovery time, which means you lose time off work and may even have to stop working to have enough time to recover fully.

Red Light Therapy may just be the answer you’ve been waiting for if you have been told surgery is your only option. A few treatments are likely to lessen the pain, and it is definitely worth exploring as an alternative to surgery.

What precautions should you take when using Red Light Therapy?
