Photon Therapy: Light That Heals

By: Ron and Pamela Patterson


Every living cell contains enzymes that are triggered or turned on by specific light frequencies.  Our molecular biochemistry is actually nourished and modulated by light, and benefits greatly from the targeted reception of light frequencies, increasing optimal function, detoxification and actual cellular healing.  Light energy at specific wavelengths talks directly to our cells (photobiomodulation), turning on beneficial body chemistry which can help us to restore normal function to tissues, relieve pain and inflammation and rapidly heal from injury, surgery and chronic disease.


Research indicates that photon therapy further promotes healing by increasing the release of nitric oxide which plays a role in immune response and neurotransmission; increasing circulation and promoting vascularity; stimulating the production of collagen to repair and replace tissue; stimulating the release of ATP which increases the energy level within the cell; increasing lymphatic system activity; stimulating fibroblastic activity to aid in repair; stimulating growth of connective tissue; reducing the excitability of nerve tissue and relieving pain.


Lumen products use safe, super-luminous light emitting diodes (LED’s) to produce photons at different wavelengths in the near-infrared/visible red spectrums.  The FDA has approved these powerful, conveniently-sized models as capable of offering:

  1. Increased local circulation (important for people with restricted circulation in the extremities)

  2. Reduction of pain (neck, back, joint, etc.)

  3. Improved range of motion

  4. Muscle relaxation, offering decrease of tension and spasms


Dr. Stan Gross, an independent clinical researcher with multiple ongoing research studies which use the Lumen products reports in a study of acute lumbar pain with over 100 participants a 93% reduction in pain along with a an increase in range of motion.  Interestingly this study also shows an average 36% reduction in cortisol levels and an average 27% reduction in histamine levels, both stress hormones which are elevated in the inflammatory response and implicated in degenerative disease processes.


Ron Patterson, the VP of Lumen Photon Therapy™ Inc., a forerunner in the field based in NC speaks about his 11 years of experience with the lights: “I have used these lights safely on babies, canaries, horses, dogs, cats and people for everything from cuts and sprains to bone infections, and have continued to be amazed and excited by the potential for individuals to receive relief from pain and accelerate healing through access to this powerful and safe technology.”


Photon therapy is an amazing development, which is placing the power to accelerate healing and live pain free in the hands of people around the world.
