Neurology (Light Therapy)
What Is Light Therapy?
Ocular light therapy is a method of therapeutically sending light through the eyes in order to stimulate brain function. Light through the eyes enables us to open up neurological pathways into specific brain structures, significantly affecting the brain and every cell of the body.
Light is the second most important environmental input, after food, in controlling bodily functions.
Research suggests that our nervous system, like our vascular system, may have two functions. It not only puts out and receives nerve impulses, but also may be a channel for the streaming of energy. Light ignites cellular metabolism. It enters the eye and goes to the body’s power distribution center, the hypothalamus, where it is converted into electrochemical impulses that are sent to the pituitary and pineal glands. These glands, in turn, distribute the hormonal messages via the body’s nervous system to virtually every cell in the body.
Chromotherapy: Color lens that provide stimulation to the brain using natural sunlight
Eyelights: were designed to provide optimal stimulation to the brain using the optic nerve. Eyelights target the weaker functioning hemisphere of the brain via the non-dominant eye. With Eyelights therapy, both sides of the brain are being affected, but emphasis is placed on the non-dominant system
