5 Pillars to Health and Longevity with Red Light Therapy
1. Look and Feel Younger and Healthier
Collagen and elastin are the proteins that give your skin structure and suppleness. As we become older, our bodies produce less collagen and elastin, resulting in fine lines and wrinkles. Red light therapy helps skin cells to protect existing collagen and elastin while also enhancing collagen creation, promoting youthful skin. This is accomplished by improving mitochondrial function to improve ATP production and cellular energy.
2. Lower inflammation and oxidative stress to live a long, more vibrant life
Inflammation-related health issues can arise as a result of the modern-day lifestyle. Factors such as spending less time in nature, environmental contaminants, inadequate sleep, or poor nutrition can contribute to physical symptoms that include fatigue, memory problems, pain, digestive issues, hormone imbalances, skin conditions, and so on. Lowering inflammation may very well be the single most important thing you can do to feel and look your best.
Oxidative stress is a concern because it indicates an imbalance between free radicals and the antioxidants that neutralize them. A persistent oversupply of these unstable free radicals can lead to a chronic overabundance that can interact with any number of molecules in the body by bonding with them and in doing so, can contribute to the disease process and increase your risk of chronic health issues.
Red light therapy can decrease inflammation and oxidative stress and stimulate healing by providing the body with what it needs to develop healthy cells that function effectively. Learn more about just how exactly this works. While supporting lymphatic and blood circulation and maintaining proper inflammatory responses, well-being can be attained.
3. Intentional Breathwork for Mind and Body Connection
The good news is that research has shown that a variety of natural breathing practices can help reverse the damaging effects of modern stress and disease. Breathwork Meditation is a dated practice that has gained popularity in recent years due to its multiple healing properties. Breathwork meditation is more intentional than regular breathing. It's calming, can help alleviate stressors in the body and can promote reposefullness.
According to Rudolph E. Tanzi, PhD, Professor of Neurology at Harvard Medical School, “Doing meditation engages restorative activity that may provide relief to the immune system through easing the day-to-day stress of a body constantly trying to protect itself.”
By integrating breathwork during a red light therapy therapy session, the parasympathetic nervous system is activated as a result and in turn helps to relax the mind and improve overall health.
4. Movement is Medicine
Moving is the most important thing anyone can do every day to improve their overall health and quality of life. Nothing out of the ordinary here; purely a few total-body movements to better connect and stimulate the body.
Maintaining a healthy amount of physical movement on a regular basis is important to assist in preventing chronic conditions, such as cardiovascular disease, auto-immune disorders, and diabetes, to mention a few.
Adults should engage in at least two and a half hours of moderate-intensity aerobic exercise each week to minimize their risk of chronic disease, according to the National Institutes of Health (NIH).
By adding red light therapy to an exercise regimen. You can support your endurance, physical strength and flexibility. Some evidence suggests that the application of red light therapy during rest periods may be able to improve performance and improve muscle fatigue resistance.
5. Conscious Eating
Although our lives are counted in years, the characteristics that show our physical age rather than our chronological age can differ across people. While there are other elements that influence the rate at which our bodies age, such as lifestyle and environment, food appears to be the one we have the most influence over and can act on the most quickly.
We can age gracefully by letting go of the foods we know are injurious to health. By modifying food choices and incorporating some of nature's most age-defying, life-sustaining foods, you can add quality years to your life. They'll keep you energized and give you the nutrients you need to slow down the aging process.
Food Choices and Benefits
Western society tends to conspicuously rely on processed foods and lack the suggested fruit and vegetable intake. One of the most crucial steps toward increased longevity is making fresh, locally grown produce—preferably organically—the main foundation of one's diet. Below are some examples.
- Antioxidant-rich foods and nuts for a youthful appearance: Antioxidants, commonly referred to as phytochemicals, assist in both preventing skin damage from the sun and assisting in its restoration after sun exposure. Foods strong in antioxidants to keep a young appearance as you age include pomegranates, red bell peppers, fish, avocados, blueberries, green leafy vegetables, green tea and olive oil.
- Vitamin C Anti-Aging Benefits and Foods: Food rich in vitamin C aids in the production of ATP, peptide hormones, dopamine, and tyrosine, all of which are crucial for cell renewal. As a potent antioxidant, vitamin C fights free radicals to prevent their activity from increasing and causing harm to cells and tissue. Foods such as citrus fruits, tomatoes, bell peppers, and kiwifruit contain high amounts of vitamin C.
