LLLT (Red light) ROS update - 11/23/21

  1. I got a few people who all say to go ahead and post, so I'll start putting my thoughts together on what I've found so far. There's so many lines of research to follow it's hard to keep it all organized!

  2. I suspect your thoughts on mitochondria would be welcome here... I think most people here would agree obesity is caused by mitochondrial dysfunction.

  3. Impressive basil temp readings. Are those oral or armpit? Mitochondrial dysfunction along with impaired endocrine function are the root of almost all health problems imho. Almost everything Brad writes about deals with mitochondria and various complexes or enzymes involved in how it functions. Kudos on the red light, boosting the cytochrome C oxidase in complex 5 of the electron transport chain.

  4. I'm very interested in anything you find about mitochondria, as I have Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, which probably has some mictochondrial aspect. Both a muscle biopsy and an Organic Acids urine test suggest that my mitochondria don't take lipids in at the rate they should. I suspect the problem has to do with not being able to maintain an aerobic metabolism when moving around, and instead swtiching to anerobic with very little activity (e.g., after walking up a few stairs).

  5. It is recommended to cover your eyes for red light treatment. There are red light eye therapies but they're far more specific than the general lights, eyes are a delicate area.

  6. Keep it coming! Def. want to hear what you have to say on this issue. I just bought a red light pad which should be in next week. Very excited to bring the RLT and saturated fat work together.

  7. How do you do the red light therapy? Do you use a red light lamp on your body similar to how infrared light therapy works?

  8. I wanted to chime in here and say that I've started red light therapy as well. It's only been a week so not expecting any amazing results. I bought a small light box so I've just been focusing on my face for the time being. I figured it would be easier to see changes in my face than elsewhere. Out of caution I've only been using it for 4 minutes at a time, once or twice a day. I want to slowly build up tolerance. I always use the goggles and I set a timer to make sure I don't go over my allotted time. I find the light incredibly soothing and I easily slip into a meditative trance, so yeah, a timer is crucial to avoid burning. I also noticed that my skin gets really dehydrated afterwards and I get thirsty.

  9. You should definitely drink plenty of water. Light therapy is commonly used as a skin treatment so that's a good place to start.
