This is a video showing how light exposure can increase testosterone secretion.
Sound like witchcraft?
There is a lot of science here. We were made to live on an earth with a sun that shines and a day and a night. We are told to stay out of the sun because it causes skin cancer. The light we are exposed inside of buildings does nothing biologically for us. There is a science of photo biology (light affecting life). A lot of the study and development of this was outside the United States. The Russians have done a lot of work on this.
Whether this has to do with humans starting off as a plant during evolution I do not know. But light does a lot of things for the “human machine.” The first thing is to stimulate production of nitric oxide which is essential in healing and other biologic processes. So what Ben Greenfield is doing with this machine makes total sense. He talks about the wavelength which he specifies is around the 640 nm measurement. Wavelength is important for biologic activity.
At this wavelength he is stimulating nitric oxide production. His position over the beam is to expose areas of the body that never, if ever, see the light. So the perineal area under which lies the prostate gland receives a direct stimulus. Nitric oxide also helps to dilate veins in the penis to increase an erection. Finally, the perineal light irradiation must really encourage testosterone production from the testicle.
There is a multi-radiance laser that uses a wavelength of 640 nm. It also uses two other wavelengths --- an infrared LED of 875 nm, and a third pulse at 905 nm. The wavelengths have been shown to be biologically active, but wavelength also affects the depth of penetration and elimination of any undue thermal changes in the skin or tissues. Besides stimulating nitric oxide production, increased activity of some biologic systems at the cellular level is also seen.
The unit uses pulsed delivery, and frequency along with the wavelength can affect penetration through the underlying tissue from the light source. Some of the frequencies will stimulate healing and others will inhibit nerve function. The inhibition is good when there is something like pain. Light gives us energy and allows our system to work better.
We were made to live with some sun. I have even found research indicating that with wounding at night the patient has a better and faster chance to recover than if he is wounded during the day. As a surgeon I used to operate during the day and hated to work at night. Maybe I was missing some aspects of bio physiology like phototherapy for wound healing and recovery.
This technology can be used with stem cell therapy. First of all, the joint or soft-tissue area where the injection will go is irradiated with light at a frequency to stimulate healing. Subsequently I will emit over major arteries using a frequency for stimulating nitric oxide production. Following this procedure the entire blood volume is saturated with nitric oxide. Now tell me that would not be good to help stimulate stem cells. It is very simple to do and I am convinced of its utility.
With my experience I can tell you a good variety of conditions that I have seen benefit from phototherapy. Although the article talks about raising testosterone levels, use of the multi-radiance laser leads to unexplored options for biologic healing from the exposure of light. And in combination with stem cells………….
