As we are just turning the corner on an incredibly hot and sunny season.  I reflect back on our summer, and realize just how much time I spent outside this year. It was a lot. Partially due to restrictions and safest measures taken included being outside, but secondly, it was so beautiful. While outside, we are exposed to full spectrum natural light. Much of the full spectrum is not visible to the naked eye. Yes, we can see the Sun shining and the reflection of its rays, but there is so much more than meets the eye.

 

During the sunny season, typically we are outside a greater percentage of the day. This is extremely healthy for us. Think about it, usually during the Summer season, mood and energy is elevated. General body inflammation is often decreased, and appetite is normalized. This is partially due to the effect the natural spectrum of light has on our bodies.  Specifically on the powerhouse cells of our body, the Mitochondria. Mitochondria are responsible for the body’s cellular energy production.

 

If the Mitochondria are so important to long term health and wellness, what do we do for the rest of the year when the seasons change to Autumn. As we know in the Northwest, it is likely we won’t see the sun at its full peak for another 8 months! As we enter Fall, the weather becomes darker and typically we will spend a far greater time indoors under artificial light.

 

How do we keep healthy cells all year long? Treatments to help optimize our mitochondrial function helps us to feel vital throughout any season. Supercharged mitochondria help us have tons of energy; eat; and breathe.

 

Red Light Therapy is an incredible solution and highly effective treatment to supercharge your health. It is quick, simple, easy and non-invasive. It is a home unit that can be purchased and incorporated into your daily health routine.  It is ideal to sit in front of the Red Light Box for a minimum of 10 minutes per day. Ideally 10 min 2x/day. Ideally with minimal clothing so the light is exposed to a greater surface area and our reproductive organs.

 

The benefits are plenty, however, I will share a few of the universal ones:
  • Increased Energy
  • Balances circadian rhythms and sleep wake cycles
  • Skin and beauty – collagen for the face; anti-aging
  • Decreased joint inflammation
  • Increased circulation
  • Increased muscle repair
  • Increase wound repair
  • Studies have shown Red Light to naturally improve Testosterone production for men
  • Studies have shown to improve Estrogen/Progesterone levels for women, in particular Egg quality; enhanced fertility.

 

These are simply a few benefits and there are many more. I personally have purchased a Red Light Box and incorporate it daily as a part of my daily health routine. I can vouch for many of the above noted benefits, I have also noted an overall calmer nervous system. The red light seems to affect and stimulate my Vagus Nerve, and calms my nervous system, ruminates thoughts and lung inflammation.

Our very own Dario has spent countless hours researching the effect of the Red Light effects and has now become a distributor. He has kindly offered Brio Patients a 15% discount off of your purchase.
