About Light Therapy
Light therapy has been around for a very long time. For thousands of years people all over the world have recognised the importance of light for the normal functioning of the human body.
The first source of light used for medical treatment was sunlight. This is known as heliotherapy, the use of which dates back to about 1400BC. “Open-air” exposure to natural sunlight was widely used to assist with the treatment of wounds during both the First and Second World Wars.
How Does Bioptron Light Therapy Work?
Extensive research has shown that light in this form provides a strong and direct stimulus for the regenerative processes. There is no tanning or burning of the skin during treatment because the light emits no UV radiation.
Bioptron Light Therapy is not regarded as a ‘healer’ in its own right but as a trigger and a regulator for biological processes which help the cells to regenerate, rebalance, and thereby heal the body.
The human body is composed of cells. Light emitted by the Bioptron lamp exerts a direct influence on tissue and blood cells. It uses wavelengths that are similar to part of the spectrum produced by the sun and so uses natural processes as part of the healing.
In the same way that different vitamins and minerals have varying effects on the body, so do each of the wavelengths of light. Humans need a wide range of frequencies for physical, emotional, and mental well-being.
Bioptron Light Therapy has a proven medical history of more than 30 years and is used as a complementary therapy for burns, wound healing, skin problems and in the treatment of sports injuries. Read More at www.bioptron.com
Colour works on the energy field that emanates from the cells in the area being treated and either strengthens or sedates that energy field. When an area of the body has cells that are not performing properly, the energy in that area is out of balance with the overall energy of the body. These colour treatment programmes have been created to balance the energy of different areas. Each programme has been designed with the knowledge that certain energies of the body need either boosting or sedating.
Where there is nerve irritation in the system, the skin can erupt when excess chemicals are released. Acne, dermatitis, psoriasis, shingles, hives, cold sores etc. are all a result of stress that affects our chemical balance. Many of the colour treatment programmes address the stress factor and work to reduce the effect of stress on the chemical system.
The programmes work to stabilise energy fields that have become imbalanced through a prolonged period of cellular memory change thereby re-energising and balancing groups of cells in various glandular, organ and neural areas. Because this memory change usually takes 2 – 4 weeks, most of the schedules run for 3 weeks. The schedules work on the prime cause of the problem rather than the symptoms, and in this way are more effective. Changes within you are usually gradual and may require a repeat or another programme.
When used in conjunction with colour therapy, Bioptron is not a medical device and is regarded as an alternative treatment.
What Conditions Can Bioptron Light Treat?
Bioptron Light Therapy is used to treat issues such as:
Skin conditions such as acne, dermatitis, eczema and psoriasis
Improving the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines, and scars and skin tone
Burns and scalds
Leg ulcers and pressure sores
Recovery from sports and soft tissue injuries
Seasonal Affective Disorder – SAD (‘Winter Depression’)
The important therapeutic effects of sunlight encouraged many researchers to develop and use filtered solar radiation and artificial light sources. Thus, phototherapy became an alternative to heliotherapy. At the beginning of the development of phototherapy, mostly infrared and ultraviolet parts of the spectrum were used in light therapy.
In the early 1980s, a team of scientists developed a light source that was originally based on laser technology but worked with almost the whole range of visible light and a portion of infrared light. The Bioptron Light Therapy System of the late 1980s was based on this technology. The Bioptron is a medical device emitting light that is similar to a part of the electromagnetic spectrum produced naturally by the sun but without dangerous UV radiation. It is used in various hospitals and clinics throughout the world for healing. No side effects have been reported in over 30 years of use.
