Energy & Lights: Innovative, Effective and Natural Healing

Energy & Lights: Innovative, Effective and Natural Healing

As a Physician Assistant with more than three decades of experience providing health care in the Grand Rapids community, Mary Wisniewski has always been passionate about studying alternative modalities to help herself, family and others who wanted to complement Western medicine with alternative natural health options.

When she learned about pulsed low-level light therapy (LLLT) and saw the amazing healing benefits of using the technique, she decided to empower and educate others by becoming a Professional Certified Light Therapist. Her business, Energy and Lights, is the result.

LLLT uses near infrared light with blue and/or red light, which is applied directly to the body using pads containing pulsed low-level light emitting diodes (LEDs) to disperse the light. wave energy.  It was first discovered to have beneficial medical uses in 1967 by Endre Mester at the Semmelweis Medical University in Hungary.

Initially, LLLT was not widely accepted in the medical community. This was likely due to a lack of scientific understanding regarding the mechanisms of action at a molecular, cellular and tissue-based level. Thousands of independent medical and scientific research studies later, LLLT has moved to the forefront as a reliable method to deliver therapeutic healing benefits for a multitude of physical & emotional problems. In 2016, Michael R. Hamblin, Ph.D., at Boston’s Wellman Center for Photomedicine, wrote that light therapy has made “major progress in obtaining recognition from authorities in medical schools, scholarly journals, the popular press and media, medical practitioners, therapists and other bodies concerned with biomedical science.”

“Pulsed light wave technology is one of the most profound, non-invasive, drug-free way to stimulate the innate capacity to heal the body from within,” says Wisniewski. “It assists the body to heal itself naturally on a cellular level, safely complementing your healthcare provider’s treatment.”

Indeed, the mass of science based medical research on this no-down-time treatment continues to grow, as LLLT is repeatedly shown to help in new ways. There is medical research evidence that supports Light Therapy especially (Red and Near Infra Red) can be used to accelerate wound healing, reduce inflammation, control pain, kill antibiotic resistant strains of MRSA, and assist with neurorehabilitation for strokes, traumatic brain or spinal cord injuries. Beneficial applications include disorders of the joints, nervous system, skin, immune system and organs.

“LLLT stimulates a cellular response that triggers the release of nitric oxide. Nitric oxide is involved in every biological function in the body and its release ignites a cascade of beneficial chemical reactions that stimulate healing,” says Wisniewski, adding that nitric oxide increases circulation, which then increases the supply of oxygen and nutrients to every part of the body.

Not only are the benefits of the treatment diverse, the therapy can be done at home. LLLT units are affordable, portable and simple to use.

Three Reasons to try LED Light Therapy

Invest in Yourself, I did.  Three Reasons to try LED Light Therapy-

I chose to invest in myself!  As a health care professional with over 25 years of experience as a Physician Assistant, I have seen many patients who have felt hopeless and frustrated with their healthcare results. They were wanting more for their body’s healing; physically, emotionally, and mentally but they were not looking for another medication. It was discouraging personally and professionally to witness the struggle that my patients were experiencing. At the time, I was also experiencing similar physical and emotional struggles in my own life and just like my patients, my doctor was doing her best but I too was not getting answers to the questions I was seeking.

Although I do not blame my healthcare provider, alternative healing suggestions were never brought to my attention as an option for my own healthcare. It is common to not be informed of alternative options for patients to seek out for healing because that is not in the scope of many medical practitioners from the Western Medicine field. However, five years ago after many hours of medical researching, I stumbled upon a program who sought out alternative professionals to talk and present their topics and areas of expertise.  I would selectively pick and listen to topics that resonated with me for my own self healing. Deep down I knew that I couldn’t help others if I was not healing myself as well. I needed and wanted to work on ME to create my best self for my clients.

Yes, I was in search of medical scientific research proven guidance to help me change my physical and emotional symptoms.

The more I listened and learned to the medical and researching educators, the more I realized that there is tremendous benefit in this area called pulsed Low Level Light Therapy (LLLT) and the healing properties Light provides with certain frequencies to repair cells, increase circulation, relieve pain and inflammation to assist me in healing my body naturally, safely without any side effects.

My top reasons why you should try Light Therapy:

  1. Promotes Relaxation, both mentally & emotionally. Eases muscle tension, specifically behind the neck and across the shoulders, thus reducing intensity of pain.
  2. Reduces inflammation around the joints in the body relieving continuous ongoing pain and discomfort that is not relieved my medications alone. Ex: shoulder, knees, ankles, back pain etc.
  3. Cellular healing in the body, FDA cleared to Increase Circulation and reduce inflammation in the body.

Take it from someone who made the change integrating Western Medicine with Integrative healthcare.  LED Light Therapy compliments your healthcare providers treatment of care safely. Could this be the lifestyle change you need for assisting your body to heal itself?
