#3080 Healing the Brain With the Proven Science of Light Therapy

Instructor: Melinda Couch

Low Intensity Light Therapy utilizes light photons from the red and near-infrared portions of the light

spectrum to initiate a healing process at a cellular level. When utilized on the brain and nervous system,

the light photons reduce neural inflammation, stimulate neurogenesis, neural synapses, and the microglial cells in the brain. All of this leads to the formation of new brain cells and new neural networks and the reduction of amyloid plaque or other waste products. LILT (or Photobiomodulation) has been well researched over the last 50 years with over 5,000 evidence based articles and clinical control trials. It is used more and more all over the world as a safe and effective treatment for Parkinson’s, dementia, stroke recovery, depression, and now even long-Covid symptoms.
