Recently, photobiomodulation, the application of red to
infrared light on body tissues has been reported to alter the course of aged decline*.
Red and near infrared lights are complex. We know only a little, but we do know about the importance of wavelengths, dose and comfort.
I’ve just added a new page – Caution .
Check it out as it collates some of the words of warning from various blog posts.
A few people have asked how long a light hat should be worn.
A previous post about the Goldilocks Effect is really important to read, as it describes the research on the odd effect of too much red light.
