Having started my journey in light therapy around 20 years ago, I have seen a lot of technologies come and go. One astounding evolution is that the quality and power of LEDs (light emitting diodes) have increased substantially while the cost has gone down.

Because of this fact, one would think that light therapy devices would become more amazing and more affordable but instead, the devices have become more flashy with with ridiculous price increases.

This is obviously only made possible because these manufacturers are simply preying on the average person’s lack of knowledge about the modality in general and definitely their lack of knowledge about the technology itself.

In this presentation, it’s all laid out. We cover the general history of light therapy, how laser therapy evolved into LED therapy. Although laser therapy still exists, there are more reasons to use LEDs. We look at the origins of LEDs in light therapy devices. My personal mentors worked directly with the first man who ever used an LED for therapeutic purposes and you’ll learn the real history in this presentation.

This is a preview…

Besides the history, you’ll learn about multiple, proven applications of red and infrared light therapy, which are all backed by published studies you can look up in PUBMED yourself. PUBMED is an archive of published medical papers under the National Institute of Health’s Library of Medicine.

You’ll learn the basic and simple to understand biological mechanisms at the cellular level of what happens when light is used on the body and specifically red and infrared. You’ll also learn why pulsed LEDs are better than steady red light and what frequency set has more history than virtually every other frequency set combined!

This presentaiton is very comprehensive and even if you’re familiar with red light therapy, you will most likely learn quite a bit about it that you have never heard of.

The presentation ends with some simple recommendations of DIY (Do It Yourself) methods to have the same benefits of light therapy devices that cost hundreds to thousands for around $50! Also, there are a lot of advertisements lately for red light devices that stimulate the growth of hair. The problem is that it costs around $1000 for something that really doesn’t cost a lot to manufacture. For under $50, you can get something that will be just as effective, which literally saves you nearly $1000!

There are countless applications for red and infrared light therapy from hair growth, reducing wrinkles, speeding the healing of wounds, relaxing tight muscles, improving mobility in joints and many others.

Get a copy of Red Light Power – it empowers you with a literal fortune’s worth of information while helping you to protect yourself from getting ripped off by unscrupulous companies who are preying on the fact that most people do not know what is in this presentation!

Cold Incandescent Light Bulbs?

Just when you thought incandescent bulbs were going out, they’ve been “reinvented” to be even more efficient than LEDs!

Normally Incandescent bulbs are about 5-10% efficient as most of the energy is converted to wasted heat and this age-old problem has finally been solved.

We’re literally talking about recycling light in a two step process.

The key is to create a two-stage process, the researchers report. The first stage involves a conventional heated metal filament, with all its attendant losses. But instead of allowing the waste heat to dissipate in the form of infrared radiation, secondary structures surrounding the filament capture this radiation and reflect it back to the filament to be re-absorbed and re-emitted as visible light. These structures, a form of photonic crystal, are made of Earth-abundant elements and can be made using conventional material-deposition technology.

That second step makes a dramatic difference in how efficiently the system converts electricity into light. One quantity that characterizes a lighting source is the so-called luminous efficiency, which takes into account the response of the human eye. Whereas the luminous efficiency of conventional incandescent lights is between 2 and 3 percent, that of fluorescents (including CFLs) is between 7 and 15 percent, and that of most commercial LEDs between 5 and 20 percent, the new two-stage incandescents could reach efficiencies as high as 40 percent, the team says.

The first proof-of-concept units made by the team do not yet reach that level, achieving about 6.6 percent efficiency. But even that preliminary result matches the efficiency of some of today’s CFLs and LEDs, they point out. And it is already a threefold improvement over the efficiency of today’s incandescents.

The team refers to their approach as “light recycling,” says Ilic, since their material takes in the unwanted, useless wavelengths of energy and converts them into the visible light wavelengths that are desired. “It recycles the energy that would otherwise be wasted,” says Soljačić.

The rest of the article available here: http://news.mit.edu/2016/nanophotonic-incandescent-light-bulbs-0111 mentions that the crystal is created with readily available natural ingredients so cost will probably not be an issue if they actually get these out to the public.

Longitudinal Light Wave?

An interesting new development allows light to be directed in a unique way.

Using a gold-plated silicon array, light can be made to move at 90 degrees from where it came from and the strange thing is that the light moves in a STRAIGHT LINE instead of in a sinusoidal pattern. That prevents interference between two different phases of light.

This is not a claim that the light is transmitting in some sort of longitudinal way, but it sure sounds like it – especially when it was reported that there was no time delay between the transmission of light from one point to the other. Longitudinal transmission would mean that energy is not lost at 90 degrees from the direction that the light is moving as opposed to a transverse “sinusoidal pattern”.

Another interesting thing is that the original article posted by PBS did state that the light was transmitted instantaneously to the other side instantaneously. Shortly thereafter, they were asked to correct the article so that the laws of physics were not violated.

A previous version of this article mistakenly reported that light hitting the chip was transmitted to the other side instantaneously. That would violate the laws of physics, of course. We regret the error.
