Greatest infrared mild gadgets for hair loss, train restoration, and extra
For at least a decade, doctors, physical therapists, and chiropractors have used infrared light therapy to heal injured muscles and treat conditions like Parkinson’s, depression, and even cancer. Now the benefits aren’t just labeled for the ones. You can buy infrared light equipment at home to manage everything from injuries to blood pressure, hair loss and wrinkles. The question is that while infrared light devices promise a medical panacea, they cost thousands of dollars. Are you worth it?
The devices vary in size, shape, and function, but all use infrared LED lights, either invisible near infrared (NIR) or visible red infrared (RI). Nobody is entirely sure what these lights do in the human body, but scientists believe that they invade our cells and activate the mitochondria, the powerhouse of our cells. The energy supply to these mitochondria makes the cells healthier and promotes repair processes.
NASA began studying artificial light therapy in the 1980s and research has increased in recent years with improvements in LED light technology. Anecdotal and scientifically aggregated data link NIR and RI to all kinds of health and healing benefits, but research is limited in scope, says Brent Bauer, director of research for the integrative medicine program at Mayo Clinic in Minnesota.
“We are still waiting for reliable, large-scale studies to confirm some of these claims,” he says. “Until we have some high quality studies evaluating both the effectiveness and safety of these new devices, caution should be exercised.”
He admits that NIR and RI light are different from the type of skin damaging energy used in tanning beds or solar UV rays. With moderate use, infrared light devices have few side effects or risks.
With the growing list of benefits, it’s worth taking a closer look at some of the options available. Here are the main options to consider.
