Laser/LED Therapy For COVID & Extra With Vielight’s Lew Lim

Have you ever ever seen me sporting a loopy, laser-light helmet on my head, with red-flashing nasal probes shoved into my nostrils, and thought…

“What the heck is that, and why would somebody ever select such a horrific vogue assertion?”

However persist with me right here as a result of there’s really one thing to the science of this so-called use of “photobiomodulation.” Quite a lot of one thing and lots of science.

The idea of all of your ideas, conduct, and feelings is the communication between your neuronal networks. This interplay results in the formation of neural electrical alerts often known as brainwaves. Mind stimulation by way of photobiomodulation stimulates neuronal mitochondria, which will increase mobile power ranges. This leads to improved effectivity in neural signaling and communication.

The “helmet” crimson mild expertise I put on – which I don three to 4 instances per week for 25 minutes – is the primary on the planet to reveal the flexibility to modulate and alter brainwaves utilizing NIR electromagnetic (mild) power, measured by means of EEG. Delivering pulsed near-infrared (NIR) mild power into the mind’s Default Mode Community (DMN) upgrades mind functionality, will increase longevity, and improves physiological well being. Microchip-boosted chilly LED diodes on this setup – made by an organization referred to as “Vielight” (use code GREENFIELD to save lots of 10%) – can safely maximize power transmission into the mind, and intranasal photobiomodulation expertise is used for ventral mind stimulation. Transcranial-intranasal programs like this allow complete, non-invasive, and protected mind photobiomodulation.

In reality, the Vielight Neuro is the world’s most-researched mind photobiomodulation system. It delivers 810 nm near-infrared (NIR) power to the mind’s Default Mode Community (DMN) by way of 4 transcranial LED modules and a nasal applicator. Vielight Neuro transcranial-intranasal expertise provides an unparalleled benefit for bettering psychological acuity and neuromodulation.

Neuro Alpha causes alpha wave exercise that correlates with the alpha circulate state, psychological calmness, and stress discount. You may learn a broadcast summary of a examine with the Vielight Neuro Alpha system on Alpha mind waves right here. Neuro Gamma wave frequency correlates with energization, problem-solving, and focus. You may learn a broadcast examine with the Vielight Neuro Gamma system on Gamma mind waves right here. The Vielight X-Plus targets important constructions inside your physique: the cerebellum, thymus gland, and nasal vascular space. It may be mixed with the Vielight Neuro as an entire brain-systemic photobiomodulation system.

The expertise of Vielight dates again to 1995 in Silicon Valley – when the founders, Dr. Lew Lim, who first joined me on the episode How To Use Low Stage Gentle Remedy and Intranasal Gentle Remedy For Athletic Efficiency, Cognitive Enhancement & Extra – and a bunch of engineers explored the potential of intranasal photobiomodulation. Intranasal photobiomodulation units had been commercially developed in 2003 which had been later trademarked as “Vielight” when the corporate was included in 2011.

Over time, Vielight’s focus shifted in direction of the event of distinctive photobiomodulation units which improve cognition and efficiency, amongst different issues. Their workforce has since developed right into a formidable workforce of engineers, scientists, and enterprise professionals devoted to taking the expertise to as many individuals as attainable. My visitor on this present, Dr. Lew Lim, is an engineer with further diplomas in Medical Neuroscience and Enterprise and Accountancy. He obtained his levels and diplomas from the College of California at Berkeley, the College of Sheffield, Duke College, and The Chartered Institute of Administration Accountants, UK, and is an knowledgeable in the usage of photobiomodulation.

  • Mind Photobiomodulation – stimulating mind waves utilizing mild
  • Stimulate the mitochondria within the neural cells; enhance mobile power within the mind
  • Vielight (use code GREENFIELD to save lots of 10%)
  • Earlier podcast with Dr. Lew Lim:

-The beginnings of Photograph Modulation Know-how…11:23 

  • Within the early 90s, experimenting with lasers
  • Photograph modulation expertise was developed within the Soviet block 
    • Phototherapy was found in 1967 in Hungary 
    • Russians had been injecting crimson mild into veins
    • At the moment, many practitioners nonetheless inject laser lights into the vein 
  • Pink and infra-red mild can penetrate by means of the pores and skin
    • Nostril is the most effective space for penetration
  • Gentle is absorbed by an enzyme (cytochrome c-oxidase) to provoke ATP manufacturing
  • The wavelength of the sunshine influences how a lot is absorbed

-Why totally different wavelengths are used…16:43

  • The 655 Prime Intranasal mannequin makes use of a low-level laser, not LED (use code GREENFIELD to save lots of 10%)
  • The distinction between lasers and LED 
  • Lasers ship coherent mild 
  • Up till 2005 most low-level mild therapies had been based mostly on lasers 
  • New research present that it’s not the coherence of the laser that issues, it’s the wavelength and enzymes being extra receptive of photons of those wavelengths 
  • Lasers are a bit more practical however not considerably 
    • Lasers are regulated by the FDA with a number of danger ranges 
  • LEDs do not have security issues related to lasers 
  • The Neuro Duo makes use of near-infrared LED, switches between alpha and =gamma 
    • Alpha is nice for basic well being 
    • Gamma is utilized by individuals who meditate and are reporting some altered state, some shift 
    • One person reviews expertise much like that of psilocybin at 400Hz
  • NeuroPro has larger, extra highly effective sign
