LASER is an acronym for Light Amplification by stimulated Emission of Radiation.
Laser light has a narrow frequency and is coherent. It stimulates the photo receptors and modulates enzymatic activity of cells.
Systemic low-level laser therapy is a form of photo-bio-modulation.
Systemic Low-Level Laser Therapy or Cold Laser Therapy is the application of specific wavelengths of coherent laser light to blood to initiate a healing response.
L.I.F.E uses diodes with a wavelength of 660nm (RED) and 520nm ( GREEN), which have a distinctly different effect on the body’s metabolism, immune system, endocrine system and autonomic nervous system. Our lasers for systemic LLLT have a power output of just 1-5mW.
Laser light is applied transcutaneously (through the skin) over the inner side of the wrist ( in the area of the radial pulse, irradiating artery, capillaries, skin receptors and nerve cells, which disseminates to all cells, tissues and organs.
Systemic LLLT is safe, non- heat producing and gentle, stimulating the body’s own healing response.
History os systemic Low- Level Laser Therapy (LLLT)
LLLT was first introduced for the clinical treatment of cardiovascular diseases in 1981 by the Russian Scientists E.N. Meschalin and V.S.Sergievskiy. Since then it has been used and researched in Russia, North and Eastern Europe and China for many conditions. The compliance an popularity have been good, as the treatment has very little side-effects only.
Effects of systemic Low-Level Laser Therapy (LLLT) on health and wellness:
• Significant improvement of general fitness
• Improved sleep and vigilance
• Improved mood
• It activates the parasympathetic activity of the autonomic nervous system counteracting the long-term effect of stress on the organism.
• Effect of LLLT blood therapy on all organs
a. Normalization of cell membrane potential
b. Stimulation of immune response, specific and non-specific
c. Increase of IgG, IgM and IgA
d. Stimulation of interferons, interleukins and TNF- alpha
e. Stimulation of the proliferation of lymphocytes
f. Increase of phagocytes activity of macrophages
g. Lowering CRP
h. Improvement of the anti-oxidant enzymatic system with anti toxic effect
i. Improvement of regeneration of erythrocytes and micro circulation
j. Reduction of aggregation of erythrocytes
k. Activation of fibrinolysis
l. Stimulation of No production in monocytes with vasodilation and improvement of endothelial dysfunction
m. Fusion of mitochondria to giant mitochondria increase of ATP-production in the respiratory chain
Effects of low level laser therapy in research and clinical settings*:
• Optimization of diabetic metabolism
• Improved blood fat profile
• Improved liver and kidney function
• Reduction of relapse of chronic-inflammatory bowel disease
• Improved general wellbeing and mobility in multiple sclerosis
• Improved pain control in chronic pain
• Improved tinnitus
• Reduction of anti-hypertensive medication
• Reduced general inflammation
• Reduced drug consumption
• Improved immunology
• Improved rheology (reduced thrombocytes aggregation; improved deformation of erythrocytes-improved oxygen supply, decreased CO2 partial pressure; improved wound healing)
• Activation of macrophages; improved proliferation of lymphocytes [B- ( bone marrow-humoral) and T- cell (thymus-cellular) population]
• Activation of fibrinolysis
• Increased ATP Synthesis
• Normalization of cell membrane potential
• Vasodilation (Better tissue tropic situation)
• NO release from monocytes
• Avoiding thromboembolic complications and improve my of wound healing
• Analgesic, spasmolytic and sedative effects
• Improved medication tolerance
• Improved Renal function
• Stimulation of utero-placental blood exchange
• Giant mitochondria-increased production of ATP
• Improved microcirculation in CNS, especially in the hypothalamus and limbic system, leading to an activation of hormonal, metabolic immunological and vegetative processes with mobilization of adaptive reserve.
