Using Light to Fight Infection, Pain and Inflammation
PhotoBioModulation (PBM) comprises the delivery of photonic energy (light) to cells in the body that has been shown to improve energy, manage stress, improve mobility and sharpen mental acuity. WellnessEmpowered, in Northbrook, offers non-invasive, painless and affordable Photonx PBM, which can stimulate cells to work more efficiently and fluidly by exposing cells to specific peaks of photonic energy within the visible and near-infrared light spectrum.
One of the primary mechanisms of PBM is the stimulation of mitochondria, the energy powerhouse of the cell that produces adenosine triphosphate (ATP), an energy-carrying molecule found in the cells of all living things. Increasing ATP has positive effects on many systems within the body.
The use of PBM has been studied and documented
for alleviation of pain and inflammation, combatting Lyme disease, promotion of
wound healing, tissue regeneration and increase of mental acuity. As the
understanding of PBM mechanisms and benefits continues to improve, it has been
the subject of over 6,000 peer-reviewed publications.
