Photobiomodulation

The photobiomodulation category represents the top level domain expertise of the VieLight team. Specifically, it will cover information about the effects of infrared light and near infrared light (NIR) therapy on human body. Even more specifically, the focus will be on brain and blood biophotomodulation, therapies. How does infrared and near infrared light affect our vital systems, organs and well being? Light therapy is not a new discipline, and neither is photobiomodulation or PBM. The content in this category will provide further insights into the science and practice of infrared and near infrared light therapy. It will cover the latest therapeutic effects of PBM.

Can Light Therapy Help the Brain?

Brain photobiomodulation (PBM) is the use of near-infrared (NIR) energy to improve cognitive functions and mental acuity. This bioenergetics process stimulates the photosensitive cytochrome c oxidase enzyme within mitochondria to produce more ATP (adenosine triphosphate). For example, this is similar to the conversion of nutrients from food into metabolic energy but with photons as the [...]

Can Light Penetrate the Skull?

“Can light penetrate the skull and reach the brain?”, is a common question that skeptics and scientists share. Thankfully, current research indicates that light energy can reach the brain but depends on several variables - such as wavelength and power density. As such, this article will attempt to clarify the mechanisms that play a role [...]

Photobiomodulation Creates Multi-factorial Pathways

"One Intervention, Multi-factorial Pathways", A Theory of Why PBM Could Work for Alzheimer's In the treatment of Alzheimer’s Disease, to date, no medication has succeeded in modifying Alzheimer’s Disease (AD).  Some AD medications approved by the FDA before 2003 were somewhat helpful for some patients for about 6 months. Recently, we informed our readers of [...]
