Light, at appropriate doses and wavelengths, is absorbed by chromophores such as cytochrome c, porphyrins, flavins, and other light-absorbing entities within the mitochondria and cell membranes of cells.
Once absorbed, the energy is stored as ATP, the form of energy that cells can use.
The result is that the absorbed energy of the BBB Therapy is used to repair the tissue, reduce pain, and/or restore normalcy to an otherwise impaired biological process. Every single cell as well as the whole organism needs this light.
BBB Therapy patient feedback highlights a wide range of health benefits including rapid recovery from:
- acute injury
increased athletic performance, reduction of chronic inflammatory pain
- improved sleep, reduced signs of aging,
increased strength and less fatty tissue.
BBB Therapy is beneficial in three general areas:
- Inflammatory conditions (eg, bursitis, tendonitis, arthritis).
- Wound care and tissue repair (eg, diabetic ulcers, venous ulcers, bedsores, mouth ulcer, fractures, tendon ruptures, ligamentous tear, torn cartilage).
- Pain control (eg, low back pain, neck pain, and pain associated with inflammatory conditions
-carpal tunnel syndrome, arthritis, tennis elbow, golfer’s elbow, post-herpetic neuralgia).
Other reports indicate that BBB Therapy modulates the levels of prostaglandins in inflammatory conditions, such as osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, and soft tissue trauma.
Dr Shimon Rochkind of Tel-Aviv, Israel, and 5uanita Anders of Bethesda, Md, indicate that specific energy fluences of light promote nerve regeneration, including regeneration of the spinal cord – a part of the central nervous system once considered inert to healing.
Mechanisms of light-induced tissue repair and pain control include:
- Modulation of prostaglandins
- Alteration of nerve conduction velocity
- Somatosensory evoked potential, and hyperemia of treated
- The clinical benefits resulting from these demonstrated effects are pain control and tissue repair in the multitude of circumstances described in clinical
