Rebalancing the Immune System with Red Light Therapy

The human body is amazing and resilient, and at the same time, it can be quite vulnerable and fragile. In the course of everyday living, the digestive, circulatory, lymphatic, and immune systems work together and depend on one another to keep our bodies healthy. If any one of these systems is compromised, it can have a domino effect on the others.  As is no surprise, our modern-day lives do not always promote healthy internal systems within our bodies. Unfortunately, poor dietary choices, sedentary lifestyles, stress, and unrestful sleep all contribute to the noticeable downfall of our overall health and wellbeing.  

In the circulatory system, blood flows through the body, and fluids seep from the blood vessels delivering important nutrients from the digestive system to organs and tissues.  When food choices are nutrient-poor, and blood circulation is impaired, tissues in the body become inflamed causing pain and swelling.  But not just the circulatory system is impacted by lifestyle and health decisions; the lymphatic system can be compromised as well.  These two systems are highly dependent on each other, and both work in concert in the immune system.

 

Interdependent Systems of the Body 

Among its roles in the body, the immune system is designed to detect, prevent and eliminate infections like viruses and bacteria. In short, it detects the presence of these ‘invaders’, dispatches replicated immune and natural killer lymphocyte cells, and transports those cells to the target areas. The delivery system for this protective activity is the lymphatic system which is comprised of specific vessels, extracellular fluid, and lymph nodes located throughout our bodies.  When the lymph system is operating normally, harmful microbes are carried by the vessels to the lymph nodes where they are attacked and killed by the lymphocytes, and excreted from the body through urine, excrement, and sweat. But when it is not working properly, it clogs up the systems and develops an often chronic inflammatory response.

 

Red Light Therapy Rebalances the Immune System

When the body becomes inflamed and exhausted from illness, diet, or inactivity, it needs help to return to balance. Among the most sought after and effective, non-invasive, non-pharmaceutical related treatments to help the body to heal itself is red light and near infrared therapy. Specifically, the range of 635nm and 880nm wavelengths applied via the skin, provides much needed stimulation and support to both the circulatory and lymphatic systems, rebalancing the immune response.

The Contour Light red light System design goes even further by placing the light source directly onto the skin and uses a proprietary reflective coating to bounce reflected light back onto the treatment area to maximize absorption. Numerous clinical studies have proven that the combination of 635nm and 880nm wavelengths improve blood circulation and boost the immune system, thus reducing inflammation and cleansing the body of free radicals.  

In a clinical study led by Dr. Michael Hamblin, the foremost expert in the field of red light therapy, they found that red light and near infrared light therapy:

– Penetrates the skin and stimulates the mitochondria to energize, replicate and detoxify the cells

– Activates the lymphatic system to promote cleansing of lymphatic fluids

– And sets into motion a cascading message throughout the body to rebalance the immune system from an over-reactive inflammatory response M1 phenotype to a healthy immune response M2 phenotype. (https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC5523874/

While treating for inflammation, red light therapy also stimulates the mitochondria in fat cells causing them to expel lipids and toxins through the lymphatic system, promoting a slimming effect. It also rejuvenates the skin and triggers production of collagen and elastin, furthering protecting the body from germs and bacteria.

Contour Light is FDA Cleared for fat loss, pain relief and increased circulation.
