Blue Lights Deep Healing | The Types of Light

Healing effects of blue light through the natural modality of light therapy

I am so stinking excited to talk to you about blue light!

Blue Light is known for it’s antimicrobial and anti-inflammatory effects in the initial stages of the healing process. It gets down to the epidermis of your skin and allows for the release of collagen. Collagen is important for the healing process of skin conditions like eczema, diabetic wounds, scars, and has anti-aging effects too.

As we get older, our bodies produce less and less collagen. We get more wrinkles; we get dark skin spots - which I personally fight with all the time. But with the help of blue lights, there is an increase of production of collagen and it’s so much better than it used to be. Blue light is just phenomenal. What it also does is it helps to modulate and balance various hormones, cortisol, and cytokines.

Now I had never heard of the word cytokines before. So let me share the definition with you:

“Cytokines are small proteins that are crucial in controlling the growth and activity of other immune system cells and blood cells, when released, they signal the immune system. [That’s really important!] to do its job. Cytokines affect the growth of all blood cells and other cells that help the bodies immune and inflammation responses.”

So why am I making a big deal of this? There are so many auto-immune diseases out there. People are getting diagnosed with this left and right. So, nobody knows why it happens, or how it happens. I’m sure that there is so much involved: stress, chemical reactions, the environment, and beyond. All of these and illnesses can break down our immune system. So, what blue light does is it helps build the immune system up and it goes after the inflammation responses. So, yay blue light!

No for a lot of you, you have heard of all the different kinds of blue light out there. You’ve heard of TV blue light and computer blue light. This is a completely different kind of blue light, so bear with me on this. This type of blue light targets our cells and natural responses to help reduce our susceptibility to disease and illness. It also helps to treat skin disorders, specifically helping with skin texture and the reduction of enlarged oil glands. Hello puberty! This is where blue light is your friend. It also helps to reduce sunspots, which I can attest to, acne, and scars that were originally caused by acne. It also kills bacteria and accelerates healing.

So, for people who suffer from neuropathy with wounds, or diabetics who get wounds, blue light is what you want to use to speed up recovery to get that healing going. Again, there are no side effects to this blue light, red light, or infrared light.

Beyond physical symptoms, Blue light therapy can also be used for depression and anxiety which I can also speak to. Blue light is amazing in helping the balance of your hormones, and what is called SAD (Seasonal Affective Disorder).

So basically, blue light is phenomenal and I’m glad that I was able to teach you more about it! Next week I’ll be speaking about Infrared light, so stay tuned!
