Infrared light therapy is a form of of photobiomodulation. The benefits of this therapy, as well as of near infrared light therapy are undergoing extensive studies. Our content in this category will focus on therapeutic effects associated with these light therapies. Although evidence-based data will take precedence, some anecdotal evidence will be a part of the discussion.

Brain Stimulation: Neurofeedback and Photobiomodulation

“tPBM has become a central element in my protocol design process. I find it to be an excellent complement to the functional support provided by neurofeedback.” “Helping brains develop new connections which support better function is an important part of neurofeedback training. Based on emerging research, tPBM can potentially support the growth of those new [...]

What about Intranasal Photobiomodulation’s Effectiveness and Research?

Photobiomodulation effects: facts and extrapolations Intranasal photobiomodulation (iPBM) is a distinct form of application of photobiomodulation. In itself, photobiomodulation (PBM) is a relatively new field. Even the word itself is quite new. It is familiar to mostly a limited group of scientists, engineers, early adopters and health practitioners. However, the applications and effects of PBM [...]

Can Light Penetrate the Skull?

“Can light penetrate the skull and reach the brain?”, is a common question that skeptics and scientists share. Thankfully, current research indicates that light energy can reach the brain, and this depends on several variables - such as wavelength and power density. As such, this article will attempt to clarify the mechanisms that play a [...]

Photobiomodulation Creates Multi-factorial Pathways

"One Intervention, Multi-factorial Pathways", A Theory of Why PBM Could Work for Alzheimer's In the treatment of Alzheimer’s Disease, to date, no medication has succeeded in modifying Alzheimer’s Disease (AD).  Some AD medications approved by the FDA before 2003 were somewhat helpful for some patients for about 6 months. Recently, we informed our readers of [...]
