listed in light and colour, originally published in issue 167 - February 2010

Thanks to the latest innovations by Bioptron® AG in Switzerland, burns, leg ulcers, pressure sores, psoriasis, aches and pains, arthritis conditions, acne, seasonal affective disorders, atopic dermatitis in children and skin rashes in babies, are all treatable with polarized, incoherent, polychromatic and low energy light

Ray treatment

Current technologies are offering us the latest in medical-care medicines and equipments but more than ever, people are wishing to further their understanding of the knowledge and wisdom used by their ancestors. More and more people are discovering and relying on holistic approaches, such as Light Therapy and Colour Therapy as an alternative and addition to health-care medicine.

Light Therapy already has a long history going back thousands of years. The first source of light used for medical treatment was the sunlight which is known as heliotherapy and dates from about 1400 BC In 1903 The Danish Physician Niels Ryberg Finsen was awarded one of the earliest noble prizes for his 'Finsen light Therapy' for infectious diseases. Dr Finsen hence is considered to be the founder of modern light therapy.

The important therapeutic effects prompted many researchers and scientists to develop and use filtered solar and artificial light source and the phototherapy techniques became an alternative to heliotherapy. Further studies by other researchers and scientists resulted in the creation of the Bioptron®  polarized light that works with almost the whole range of the visible and part of the infrared light, and the Bioptron®  devices were launched.

This was a huge development, and the Bioptron® Light Therapy became an effective and viable additional treatment for various conditions and illnesses, affecting both adults and children.

Studies and researches into the effect of phototherapy using Polarized, Incoherent, low energy light therapy show that polarized light help speed up the healing process in cases such as venous leg ulcers, pressure sores and burns. A quote from the University Hospital of Gent in their paper that was submitted to the British Journal of Plastic Surgery states: "In conclusion, the results of this clinical study demonstrate that polarized-light therapy reduces the need for surgery in the treatment of deep dermal burns. In this group of patients, the use of polarized light accelerated wound healing and allowed very early pressure therapy, thus reducing hypertrophic scarring and contracture. No extension of the hospital stay was required. Because of the better aesthetic and functional results (especially in burns of hands), polarized-light therapy has become the therapy of choice for deep dermal burns in our University Hospital"

The term 'light' refers to the visible part of the electromagnetic radiation spectrum. The light used in the submitted clinical trials consists of the visible and part of the infrared light measuring between 480 nanometres and up to 3000 nanometres. This Bioptron® range ensures the exclusion of any UV light thus avoiding any UV radiation and posing no risk to the patient.

Today it is known that the human organism transforms light into electrochemical energy, which activates a chain of biochemical reactions within cells, stimulating metabolism and reinforcing the immune response of the entire human body.

Light Therapy

Bioptron® Light Therapy can be beneficial to people of all ages including children and babies. Bioptron® Light Therapy can be used in children as a complementary therapy to reduce pain and promote healing in various types of conditions, such as: Skin disorders, infections of the upper airways (common cold, sinus infection, tonsillitis) and Conditions affecting muscles, joints and bones.

Bioptron® Light Therapy can be used as mono-therapy and/or as complementary therapy for pain treatment in the following indications: Rheumatology (osteoarthritis, rheumatoid , chronic arthritis), Physiotherapy (low back pain, shoulder and neck pain, carpal tunnel syndrome, scar tissue, musculoskeletal injuries) and Soft Tissue Injuries (soft tissue injuries of muscles, tendons and ligaments, muscle spasm, sprains, strains, tendonitis, tennis elbow).

General Benefits

Bioptron® Light Therapy can be used both as a complementary treatment to support conventional medical methods and as monotherapy for certain indications.

Bioptron® Light Therapy can:
  • Improve microcirculation;
  • Harmonize metabolic processes;
  • Reinforce the human defence system;
  • Stimulate regenerative and reparative processes of the entire organism;
  • Promote wound healing;
  • Relieve pain or decrease its intensity.
The outstanding characteristics of Bioptron® Light enable the light to penetrate not only the skin but also the underlying tissues. Thus the positive effect of Bioptron® Light is not limited to the treated skin area but also has a beneficial effect on the entire organism.
  • Bioptron® Light has biostimulative effects: when applied to the skin; it stimulates light-sensitive intracellular structures and molecules. This initiates cellular chain reactions and triggers so-called secondary responses, which are not only limited to the treated skin area, but can involve the whole body;
  • Bioptron®  Light Therapy stimulates and modulates reparative and regenerative processes as well as the processes of the human defence-system;
  • Bioptron®  Light Therapy acts in a natural way by supporting the regenerative capacity of the body and therefore helps the body to release its own healing potential.

Wound Healing

Bioptron® Light Therapy can be used as monotherapy and/or as complementary therapy for wound healing in the following indications:
  • Wounds after a trauma (injuries)
  • Burns
  • Wounds after operations
  • Leg ulcers
  • Decubitus (pressure sores)
We recommend consulting a physician before using Bioptron®  Light Therapy in order to receive professional advice as to whether this treatment is recommendable or whether other medical treatment is necessary.

Pain Treatment

Bioptron®  Light Therapy can be used as monotherapy and/or as complementary therapy for pain treatment in the following indications:

Rheumatology

  • Osteoarthritis
  • Rheumatoid arthritis (chronic)
  • Arthroses

Physiotherapy

  • Low back pain
  • Shoulder and neck pain
  • Carpal tunnel syndrome
  • Scar tissue
  • Musculoskeletal injuries

Sports Medicine

Soft tissue injuries of muscles, tendons and ligaments including:
  • Muscle spasm
  • Sprains
  • Strains
  • Tendonitis
  • Ligament and muscle tears
  • Dislocations
  • Contusions
  • Tennis elbow
We recommend consulting a physician before using Bioptron®  Light Therapy in order to receive professional advice as to whether this treatment is recommendable or whether other medical treatment is necessary.

Colour Therapy

Health is contingent upon balancing not only our physical needs, but our emotional, mental and spiritual needs as well. The colour chakra therapy principle is based on the assumption that colours are associated with seven main chakras, which are spiritual centres in our bodies located along the spine. These chakras are like spirals of energy, each one relating to the specific area.

Chakra is the Sanskrit word for 'wheel'. It is assumed that chakras store and distribute energy. There are seven of these chakras and each is associated with a particular organ or system in the body. Each chakra has a dominant colour, which may become imbalanced. If this happens, it can cause a disorder and physical ramifications. By introducing the appropriate colour, the disorder is considered to be improved.

Light and Colour are essential for our body and soul, however, colour therapy works purely as an alternative, non medical, holistic level, unlike the polarized, low energy Incoherent light therapy described above.
