Thera Light Anti-Aging Therapy in Lafayette, LA Helps the Body Heal Naturally
Thera Light Anti-Aging Therapy in Lafayette, LA: When the body’s cells age and become stressed, the mitochondria produce their own nitric oxide (NO) which competes with oxygen and often wins. This molecule blocks the receptor site that oxygen belongs in during the respiratory process—the process of turning sugar in our blood into cellular energy. With a diet rich in anti-oxidants and rest, our body manages excess nitric oxide. If the body is too stressed, it cannot properly remove enough nitric oxide fast enough. This causes reactive oxygen species known as Oxidative Stress. Reactive oxygen species are toxic and begin the process for inflammation, cell death and the expression of genes responsible for cancer, Alzheimer’s, osteoarthritis and more. The Nerve Health Institute uses Thera Light anti-aging therapy to combat this process.

“Photo” means light. “Bio” means life. “Modulation” means a change in something. Photobiomodulation is the use of light to cause a therapeutic change to the body. Photobiomodulation therapy (PBMT), also known as LLLT (low-level laser therapy) is exposing the body to certain light colors (wavelengths) that encourage healing (wounds, tendons, muscles, nerves, bones) and reduces inflammation and pain. There are no side effects and it’s non-invasive. It is not a heating therapy nor ablating. In normal healthy individuals, benefits such as improved strength, ATP, recovery time and less fatigue are realized.
The Thera Light 360 Full Body Wellness Light Bed is the newest development provided by Dr. Chris Cormier for relief, recovery and wellness. The Nerve Health Institute has the only Thera Light device in the state of Louisiana. Patients can enjoy the benefits of drug-free, non-invasive full body light therapy that helps the body to heal naturally.
How Thera Light Anti-Aging Therapy Works
When red & near IR light is absorbed by a protein in the mitochondria called Cytochrome c Oxidase (CcO), mitochondiral NO (nitric-oxide) is dissociated from CcO and oxygen transport returns to normal. CcO is the last enzyme in the respiratory electron transport chain. This downstream effect increases ATP production among many other beneficial intracellular responses. In other words, the cell functions again at optimal levels. Cells make up tissues. Tissues make up organs. Organs make up humans. All aspects of the 11 organ systems benefit. From faster recovery to improved energy and strength.
Originally developed by NASA research to treat astronauts, light therapy has evolved to devices that provide professionally administered light and laser treatments. Today, Aspen Photomedicine has further advanced light therapy technology behind our new Thera Light whole body light therapy system. The Thera Light pod has identified the specific spectrums of light that generate the desired effects naturally within the body’s cellular structures. Optimal results are achieved with high power LED light micro-chips that have been engineered to medical grade specifications and are safe for all skin types.
