I have been involved in the horse industry most of my entire life, over 50 years and in the process I have seen many new and different way to help horses heal. The day that I started to hear and research the effects that Red Light Therapy (also known as Red Light Therapy) had in the healing process with horses I became a believer.
What I found was a program that is effective and beneficial to the emotional and physical healing process that had been lacking in so many horses and red light therapy offered a safe and non-invasive method to fill that existing void.
During the time that I was initially researching and developing a program that would allow for the greater use of the protocol I discovered that there were ten areas that greatly benefited from the use of red light therapy and they are listed below.
10 Ways Red Light Therapy Improves Healing
Reduces pain by increasing production of endorphins - a natural pain killer
Reduces inflammation by suppressing enzymes that create swelling, redness, and pain.
Boosts the release of anti-inflammatory enzymes to reduce swelling quickly.
Increases cellular regeneration and healing by stimulating the mitochondria within the cell. This increases the production of ATP which causes damaged cells to accept nutrients and eliminate toxins faster
Increases lymphatic drainage and circulation.
6. Relaxes tight muscles and quickly releases muscle
Strengthens anti-viral properties by increasing antibody production in the bloodstream
Improves structure of tendons, bones, skin, teeth, and cartilage by increasing Collagen production.
Stimulates a strong heart beat by regulating serotonin levels. Serotonin helps to regulate inflammation and allergic reactions and plays an important role in blood clotting, stimulating a strong heartbeat, initiating sleep, and fighting depression. It also stimulates the smooth muscle in the intestinal wall helping it to contract.
Red Light Therapy has the ability to address physiological, mental, and emotional issues. Healthy cells vibrate at about 660 nanometers. When tissue sustains injury or illness the vibration level in the affected cells goes down. Increasing the vibration level in the cell with the Red Light Torch is like jump starting a dead car battery; it accelerates the mitochondria within the cell, which increases ATP production (which is the main food source for DNA). ATP sends signals to the brain so the brain releases endorphins, anti-inflammatories, serotonin, and more.
It has been found, and proven, that the light stimulates the mitochondria within the cell which increases ATP production. Increased ATP production allows damaged cells to accept nutrients more quickly and to eliminate toxins. If administered quickly enough, it can prevent cellular death. This process allows the body to heal itself by reducing/eliminating pain and inflammation, while increasing circulation. It also excites the collagen within the damaged tissue, and allows the body to heal itself faster.
