An article in the Weekend Australian newspaper about red light and Parkinson’s Disease covers some of the people involved in the experiences described in this blog.
The article mentioned a home-made light hat. The instructions for making a one-wavelength version of the hat (aka Eliza) have been posted.
Instructions for a two-wavelength version of the light hat are in progress.
PS. If the link to the article takes you to a paywall, try searching for it using Google, using the search term ‘Suvi Weekend Australian’. I was able to access the full article this way.
Here are the instructions for making a one wavelength Eliza.

Making an Eliza isn’t difficult, but it is a fiddly process and takes quite a few hours.
Be brave and give it a go.
Let me know if there are things that need to be clarified.
I’d love to see photos of your Eliza.
For a really good general article about mitochondria, click here.
Some fascinating ideas are presented about how the mitochondria came to be.
These ideas fit beautifully with the otherwise perplexing fact that mitochondria can respond to specific wavelengths.
Over the last two years we have made, for people with Parkinson’s, a number of Eliza light hats, both one and two wavelength. I’ve been musing on what they and we have been noticing. Bear in mind that each person is different, experiencing symptoms in different ways.
We have seen improvements in everyone who uses the lights daily.
The person least likely to notice any improvements is the person with Parkinson’s

While writing out the instructions to make light hats from buckets, I’ve been musing on the lives of the 2-wavelength light hats we have made since 2016.
What have the light hats been doing since we gave them away?
Quite a lot, it seems.
- One went to Europe at the beginning of 2017, and floated down the Rhine, sampling the local beer.
- Three went wandering in outback Australia. One came home but two are still out there, somewhere in the wilds of Western Australia.
- One did a presentation to a Parkinson’s Support Group in February 2017. The participants were not impressed by the bucket’s attire but they were impressed by what its two wavelengths had been doing.
- One is based in regional NSW but travels all over Australia, packed in a carry-on bag with socks and jocks stuffed inside the bucket next to the switch box.
- The others are quietly working at home. They might be planning grand adventures – who knows.
I’ve just written up the story of our red/near infrared light hats.
It started in 2015 with a lampshade from an Op-shop and ends with a bucket. More
