We have 4 light sensitive molecules:
1, Retina (which absorbs light for vision)
2, Hemoglobin (in red blood cells)
3, Myoglobin (in muscle)
4, and the most important of all, Cytochrome (in all the cells)
We have the energy powerhouse inside the cells, it is called Mitochondria.
The Mitochondria is stuffed with light sensitive Cytochrome.
This converts light energy from the sun into energy for the cells.
As the sun’s photons pass through the membrane and come in contact with the Cytochrome, they are absorbed and stimulate the creation of a Molecule (ATP = adenosine triphosphate) that store energy in our cells.
Molecule ATP can also provide energy that can be used by the immune system and for cell repair.
Laser light triggers ATP production, which is why it can initiate and accelerate the repair and grow the of healthy new cells, including those that make up cartilage (chondrocytes), bone (ostencytes), and connective tissue (fibroblasts).
The laser light can also increase the use of oxygen, improve blood circulation and stimulate the growth of new blood vessels, bringing more oxygen and nutrients to the tissues – especially important for healing.
So many modern diseases, depression, cancer, Alzheimer’s and all the autoimmune diseases (such as rheumatoid arthritis and lupus) occur in part because our body’s immune systems produce excess chronic inflammation.
In chronic inflammation the immune system stays on too long and may even begin to attack the body’s own tissues, as though they were outside invaders.
Chronically inflamed bodies produce chemicals, called pro-inflammatory cytokines, which contribute to pain and inflammation.
There is substantial clinical evidence published in peer reviewed medical journals that Soft Laser Therapy can stimulate repair of tissue, reduce inflammation and relieve pain in musculoskeletal disorders.
