Infrared Light Therapy for Clearer, Sharper Thinking?

I’ve been using Far Infrared Light three to four times a week for the past five years now, together with three other therapies, to give me a non-sugical facelift. I really love my results, and have been reading with great interest about research on additional uses for far infrared light. Knowing it has a positive effect on wound healing and tissue regeneration of the skin, there are now studies looking at deeper light therapy, particularly into the brain, with positive findings.

“We are applying a technology that’s been around for a while,” says lead investigator Dr. Margaret Naeser, (of the VA Boston Healthcare System),”but it’s always been used on the body, for wound healing and to treat muscle aches and pains, and joint problems. We’re starting to use it on the brain.”

Utilizing scalp electrodes to transmit the infrared light into specific areas of the brain, are producing promising results for individuals with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder where cognitive therapy alone has been effective up to a point. The researchers tested individuals who have had cognitive therapy, and found improvement in their thought clarity and more.

“The LED therapy increases blood flow in the brain, as shown on MRI scans. It also appears to have an effect on damaged brain cells, specifically on their mitochondria. These are bean-shaped subunits within the cell that put out energy in the form of a chemical known as ATP. The red and near-infrared light photons penetrate through the skull and into brain cells and spur the mitochondria to produce more ATP. That can mean clearer, sharper thinking, says Naeser.”

Our Cell – with Mitochodria

The mitochondria is the “power house” or engine within our cells. If the infrared light treatment helps to stimulate or “rev up” the cell’s engine, thereby producing more “fuel” (ATP), this will be a tremendous option for so many who have neurological issues. Hopefully, after it becomes a proven adjunctive therapy, researchers will explore its application for those with epilepsy, autism, depression, dementia and other neurological issues which could be life changing.

“Neuropsychological testing before the therapy and at several points thereafter showed gains in areas such as executive function, verbal learning, and memory. The study volunteers also reported better sleep and fewer PTSD symptoms.”

I’m looking forward to learning more about this application in the future.

Invisalign – My First Update

In my post, Braces vs Invisalign in Later Life, I was just 5 days into my new orthodontia “liners” and struggling for a daily rhythm for drinking my morning coffee, eating throughout the day and speaking coherently. Now at the 1/3 of the way point, I will give an update.

Invisalign Tray

In trying to establish a balance with new rituals, I can say I think I have forged an acceptable schedule for managing timed drinking and eating, always followed by brushing my teeth. What was once a leisurely ritual of slowly sipping and relishing my two cups of morning coffee has now become a timed sport. All other eating is planned and scheduled with a clock and toothbrush.

A Cup of Green Tea with Your Apple Boosts Health Benefits

Health benefits of an apple and a cup of green tea.

 

The old saying, “an apple a day keeps the doctor away”, has just become more valuable for staying healthy! Certain substances within apples and green tea, known as polyphenols, are proving to be beneficial in protecting us from chronic diseases. [Read more…]

When to Toss Your Makeup

Do you know when to toss your makeup?

Makeup can be a breeding ground for bacteria and fungus. While some products have expiration dates on them, there are many newer products with more “natural” ingredients, including preservatives. These may have a shorter antibacterial window of time. [Read more…]

Stress and Your Inflamed Skin

Stress & Your Inflamed Skin

It would certainly seem true that when you’re stressed, your skin shows it by the development of a large pimple in a most undesirable location (read Does Stress Cause Acne?), a new patch of eczema springing up, and the flaring up of your rosacea, right?

Scientific research has yet to confirm – until now. [Read more…]

You (almost) Can’t Have Enough Vitamin D

You (Almost) Can't Have Enough Vitamin D

Good news coming from researchers at the Mayo Clinic this week on Vitamin D and the potential for toxicity we’ve all been worried about. As information correlating sun exposure and skin cancer has been widely disseminated, and the use of sunscreens with SPF of 30 to 50 and more are increasingly used, Vitamin D levels have been seen to decline. The easy fix is to take Vitamin D supplements, but the fear of how much is too much has gnawed on my conscience. [Read more…]

Two Minutes to Health!

2 Minutes to Health!

You’ve heard that consistently sitting for extended periods of time is a death sentence, right?  Now there is a bright spot in that darkness, as a team of researchers from the University of Utah School of Medicine have discovered by adding a bit of exercise for as little as two minutes every hour, we can extend our life expectancy. If you’re anything like me, immediately a picture flashed before your eyes  of walking “vigorously” to the break room for a cup of coffee and pastry! NO! It means moving around expending a bit of energy for a couple of minutes, sans eating! [Read more…]

Kentucky Derby Hats

Kentucky Derby hats are my favorites because they are pretty much a mandatory part of the outfit which sets the fun, frolicky, dressy tone for the day. The rainbow of colors seen on a sea of heads create a much anticipated show of fashion and frivolity. Broad, lipsticked smiles on made up faces, matching tea party dresses and mint juleps in hand, are ready for the cameras and much anticipated race.

Here are some of my favorites from last year’s Derby:

Probiotics = Less Sad Thoughts?

Probiotics = Less Sad Thoughts. How does that work?

Struggle with the “the cup is half empty” voices in your head? Tend to focus on unpleasant thoughts or feelings continually looking at the negative side of life? Besides snapping a rubber band on your wrist for each negative thought, there’s an easier way to set the foundation for more optimistic thoughts and conversations going on throughout your day.

What is a Concierge Nurse?

Concierge Nursing: What is it all about?

Have you experienced concierge services when you’ve traveled and stayed in a hotel? The concierges are sharp, and have a world of information at their fingertips – or in their heads, and can “Connect the Dots” for you in no time at all. Make a reservation, direct you to an unknown destination, arrange transportation or book a tennis partner for a quick set!

Social Jetlag

How does Social Jetlag affect you?

We know not getting enough sleep, having poor quality sleep, awakening unrefreshed while still tired is not healthy. If your poor quality and lack of sleep is caused by working hours that don’t match the natural rhythms of your internal body clock, this is being referred to as ‘Social Jetlag.’

Now, researchers report in the Cell Press journal Current Biology on March 12 that sleep and workers’ general well-being could be improved if work schedules took workers’ biological clocks into account.” [Read more…]

New Targeted Approach to Acne

There's a new targeted approach to acne treatment...and here's the scoop!

Researchers at UC Santa Barbara have created a three-pronged approach to treating acne. This novel process includes low frequency ultrasound which pushes very tiny gold and silica particles deep into the skin, followed by the application of laser. The laser shines light onto the particles which generates heat and pushes the particles into the sebaceous glands, which deactivates them. [Read more…]

Beautiful Memory

Taking a breath or two, enjoying the beauty around me, and recalling found memories again of when I lived in Lausanne 35 years ago. This is pretty close to the view from my window, (without the steeples) of the majestic French – Swiss Alps in the spring.

Where does your mind wander to when you think of a place of beauty?

Thinking thoughts of peace, beauty, and nature calms me and makes me smile.

Happy Spring!

Personal Tissue Regeneration Options are Coming Soon!

Personal Tissue Regeneration Options Coming Soon.

Recent findings in the field of tissue regeneration research may be life changing for many. Those  with damaged tissues such as diabetic foot ulcers, burns, loss elasticity in tissues providing structural support of internal organs, or even loss of organ tissue, have hope for regenerative options from manipulating their own tissue cells.
