The sun’s value to humanity is timeless. In this video, we explore the power of sunshine to heal and help those suffering from COVID-19 symptoms.

Introduction

As the sun is low in the sky in the month of January, people tend to suffer from depression, specifically seasonal affective disorder. This is more prevalent in parts of the planet where they don’t get enough sunshine. In this post, we will look at a study published in the Journal of Photochemistry and Photo Biology that explores the potential benefits of infrared light therapy in the treatment of COVID-19.

Background on Infrared Light

Infrared light is a type of light that is emitted that cannot be seen by the naked eye. It is outside of the visible spectrum and is most commonly found in the form of infrared radiation in sunlight. The specific wavelength used in the study was 940 nanometers. This type of light can penetrate deep inside the body, going through clothes, skin, and the subcutaneous layer, potentially reaching depths of up to 8 centimeters.

The Study

The study consisted of 30 patients who were hospitalized for COVID-19 and were made to wear a vest or jacket equipped with 300 infrared LEDs, each emitting at 200 milliwatts for a total of 6 watts. The patients were exposed to the light for 15 minutes a day for 7 days. The study compared the results of the treatment group (Group 1) to a control group (Group 2) in terms of body mass index, age, gender, and co-morbidities.

Results

The results of the study showed that the intervention group (Group 1) had a significant improvement in oxygen saturation levels and a decrease in the need for mechanical ventilation compared to the control group (Group 2). Additionally, the intervention group had a decrease in inflammation markers and an improvement in heart and lung function.

Infrared Light and the Body

Infrared light has the ability to penetrate deep inside the body, with some data suggesting it can reach depths of up to 8 centimeters. This is important to understand because the majority of cells in the human body are responsive to infrared radiation. This is true for both those with melanin-rich skin and those who are melanin deficient.

Infrared Light in the Treatment of COVID-19

COVID-19 patients who received infrared light therapy in the study had a significant improvement in oxygen saturation levels and a decrease in the need for mechanical ventilation. Additionally, the therapy resulted in a decrease in inflammation markers and an improvement in heart and lung function.

Infrared Light Therapy: A Promising Treatment

The study suggests that infrared light therapy is a promising treatment for COVID-19 patients. Further research is needed to fully understand the mechanisms behind the therapy and to confirm the findings of the study. The use of infrared light therapy may also have potential benefits for other illnesses and conditions.

Conclusion

The study suggests that infrared light therapy is a promising treatment for COVID-19 patients. Further research is needed to fully understand the mechanisms behind the therapy and to confirm the findings of the study. The use of infrared light therapy may also have potential benefits for other illnesses and conditions.
