Dr. Jacob Liberman (pioneering light therapist) says that light really is the medicine of the future. It is perhaps the least invasive form of therapy in use today. Laser therapies have become increasingly popular over the last few decades as many new types of lasers have been developed varying from tunable color lasers to solid-state lasers no bigger than an electronic chip. A number of medical and surgical procedures have become more efficient because of lasers. For instance, laser scalpels offer the advantages of cleanly cutting through tissue while simultaneously sealing and cauterizing cut blood vessels. Because different cellular structures absorb various colors of light differently, doctors have been able to develop very color-specific lasers for different treatment applications. For example, green-argon lasers are often used for diabetic eye surgery because the green – light tends to affect only blood vessels, leaving other sensitive portions of the eye undamaged.
Did you know that not only can the light of the laser beam cut through tissue, it can also activate light sensitive chemicals that are able to selectively kill certain types of cancer cells? Bronchial tumors of the lung are one form of cancer sometimes treated using photodynamic therapy. In photodynamic therapy (PDT), certain light-sensitive dyes (which tend to be absorbed primarily by abnormal cells) are administered to patients in order to selectively kill cancer cells while leaving surrounding normal tissues relatively unharmed. Many of these organic, light-sensitive dyes are derived from chemicals known as porphyrins, the ringlike chemical structures that lie at the very heart of every oxygen-carrying hemoglobin molecule in our bloodstream.
Color and Light therapy has many different uses today such as Ocular Light Therapy developed by Dr. Downing (the therapeutic projection of different colors and wavelengths of light through the eyes in order to improve various types of brain dysfunction). Dr. Downing has found that Ocular Light Therapy can improve a variety of physiological imbalances. Some health issues that have been shown to improve with Ocular Light Therapy includes fatigue, stress symptoms, headaches, various types of pain syndromes, hormonal imbalances, premetstrual syndrome, mood swings, insomnia, depression, fear and anxiety, hyperactivity, memory and concentration problems, learning disabilities, as well as selected vision problems.
The EPFX biofeedback device is able to reduce the stress in all the above areas and more using the biofeedback Color Program along with any other biofeedback programs the client’s body (subconscious mind) is responding to at the time of the session. The Biofeedback color program automatically sends the frequencies of 256 colors to the client and stops at the most beneficial stress reducing color for the client that day.
