NASA Sheds Light On Healing With Light Energy:By Maggi Cameron of Bio Beauty Health.

"The pain is gone - I can't believe it!" That is what Jack had to say when his pain suddenly disappeared after two decades of unrelenting pain from diabetic neuropathy and a treatment program that profoundly interfered with his quality of life and led to an addiction to a myriad of pharmaceutical drugs. It was just that fast - 2 x 30 minute treatments with light and his pain disappeared. Incredible! No more medicines. He began feeling like his old self - he could think clearly and his zest for life returned. Jack's family thinks it was a miracle. Yet diabetic neuropathy is only one of many health conditions that can be eliminated using red and near infrared light - also known as photonic stimulation. .

"I can feel my feet for the first time in five years" said Jim who had been given red light therapy for a diabetic ulcerated toe. The treatment used on Jim was Bioptron Light Therapy that encompasses all wavelengths of the visible spectrum in one single beam and also isolates each wavelength with seven different spectrum lenses. The lens for photonic stimulation uses red and near infra red wavelengths. The Bioptron Swiss Light unit has 650-780nm. The US Air force uses wavelengths from 630-670 nm - in the red light spectrum. Similar to Bioptron but with less near infrared. What's more the Bioptron's multi lens omits wavelengths measuring 420-3400nm - more than any other light system available in any other light source. (world patent) .

Photonic stimulation is like "Star Trek" medicine - something out of the future that sounds too far-fetched to exist in today's world. However, healing with red and near infrared photons is a reality and is poised to become mainstream in medical practice. This powerful, effective, safe, and affordable technology is revolutionizing medical treatment for pain, many neurological disorders, and a wide variety of musculoskeletal and soft tissue maladies. Many health problems that had previously been notoriously difficult or even impossible to manage successfully, can now benefit from photonic stimulation. Doctors are now examining how light wave technology helps hard-to-heal wounds, such as diabetic skin ulcers, serious burns, and severe oral sores caused by chemotherapy and radiation. The project includes laboratory and human trials, approved by the FDA and funded by a NASA. .

"So far, what we've seen in patients and also laboratory cell cultures, all point to one conclusion," said Dr. Harry Whelan, director of hyperbaric medicine at the Medical College of Wisconsin. "The near-infrared light emitted by the light therapy units seems to be perfect for increasing energy inside cells (also known as biostimulation of cells) to accelerate healing." The NASA-funded research has already seen remarkable results to promote healing of painful mouth ulcers caused by cancer therapies such as radiation and chemotherapy. The treatment is fast, painless and efficient. .

How does photonic stimulation work? Scientists believe that the action of photonic stimulation is related to its ability to cause biostimulation within the energy producing mitochondria of cells in injured tissues. This enables cells to increase production of ATP and thereby stimulate the return of more normal cellular physiology. ATP (Adenosine triphosphate) is the powerhouse of every cell and is essential for normal cell function. Accompanying this is regulation of the autonomic nervous system, which in turn regulates blood flow to injured tissues, relieves pain, and promotes faster healing. It is reported that the U.S. Air Force may soon use photonic stimulation to treat battlefield wounds and it may replace the treatment normally used to repair skin wounds resulting in faster treatment times. .

Red light therapy is now being used by carers, physiotherapists, chiropractors, and health professionals to treat a multitude of ailments. The treatment is used by carers and patients alike as it is non-invasive, easy to apply and has no known side effects. It is now possible to receive treatment in the comfort and convenience of your own home making it ideal for everyone and those who are bed ridden. .

Photo-rejuvenation, using any type of light as a form of healing isn't a new theory. The ancient Greeks are credited with first discovering the healing power of light, and often incorporated sunlight into their healing. Through various experiments NASA scientists have found that both plants and animals respond positively to light. These studies led to further research into light therapy and the development of it for medicinal treatments. .

The Swiss Bioptron red light therapy produces the red and near infrared spectrum (650-780nm) - for photonic stimulation. Other similar light units and LED's use wavelengths measuring approx. 630-670nm. However, the broader wavelengths found in the Bioptron allow deeper penetration and a broader spectrum of influence. The Bioptron is based on polychromatic (many coloured), polarised light waves. It has been researched by scientists all over the world to clinically prove its depth of penetration (25mm), faster healing power, ATP and collagen production and cell biostimulation. .

The medical team involved in the Bioptron design wanted a light system that could be used directly on the eyes as wavelengths are best absorbed via the 137 million photo receptors behind the eyes, where it triggers hormone production that influences the body's complex biochemistry. This was a major step forward as almost all other forms of light therapy are unsuitable for use on the eyes which must be protected from the light rays for both the operator and the client. By applying the light rays directly on the eyes, quicker and more far reaching effects can be achieved. For more info on Bioptron go to

At our clinic, We have used different forms of Light Therapy for over twenty years. First training with the eminent Professor Freidrich Plog in Low Level Laser therapy using helium neon lasers with wavelengths of 632nm. Then in the 90's we were introduced to Bioptron Polychromatic Polarised Light Therapy. We were one of the first Australian clinics to introduce this type of light therapy into our practise when little was known about it. Our previous training with Prof Plog had provided us with the necessary knowledge needed to assess the possibilities this type of treatment could offer - Drug free; Non-invasive; fast healing; no known side effects and could directly treat the eyes… .

It is not something for the future - it is here now to be used for the benefit of all.... Contact Bio-beauty Health for more info on or call us on 07 5580 5744

Talking Yourself Slim: by Sue Lester Head Transition Coach, Master Practitioner of NLP & Hypnosis.


Is Easter still hanging around your hips? Here are 6 powerful tips to help you release the excess and start feeling better about yourself.

1. Take responsibility (straight into the Ouch factor here). Accept that now you are an adult, you alone decide what goes into your mouth. You decide what to buy. If someone in your family can't go without chocolate biscuits, let him/her buy them and eat them alone. .

2. It's OK to say NO to someone else if you are really saying YES to yourself. Set and maintain boundaries. .

3. Mind your Self Talk - are you talking like a best friend or the biggest bitch? If you are feeling bad, even more criticism will hinder not help. Encourage yourself. .

4. Acknowledge that healthy choices are a sign of self love, NOT a punishment. You are saying No Thanks for you, not against you. .

5. Choose your words carefully, as it makes a difference to how you feel. E.g. "Healthy Choices" instead of "Dieting and Exercise". "Release" excess weight, don't "Lose fat". If you lose something it's generally a bad thing and you have to find it again, quickly! .

6. Identify what is causing your empty feeling, and find other ways to fill yourself, instead of food, alcohol, cigarettes. E.g. is the emptiness from feeling lonely, unloved, inadequate? Hugs, chats with friends, a walk in the sunshine, stroking a pet, dumping it all out on paper before burning it, are all calorie-free. .

Remember, the more you practice, the easier it gets. Be firm but gentle with yourself, and allow yourself to learn new ways of making healthier choices every day. .

If you want even faster progress, so your choices become unconsciously automatic, book yourself in for your time to change. .

.Quote of the Month!

The Dalai Lama, when asked what surprised him most about humanity.

ANSWERED: "Man, because he sacrifices his health in order to make money. Then he sacrifices money to recuperate his health. And then he is so anxious about the future that he does not enjoy the present: the result being that he does not live in the present or the future: he lives as if he is never going to die, and then dies having never really lived. I feel sure the economic state of Australia and the World is of great concern to everyone. With unknown times ahead it is paramount that you take care of your world. Focus on everything that is important to your life.
