Red Light Therapy is an Adjunct to Obesity when combined with diet and exercise
Red Light and Infrared Waves are completely safe have zero negative side effects and have been used since 1994.
How Does Light Therapy Work to Reduce Fat?
It has been well documented that red light at certain wavelengths stimulates mitochondrial and cellular energy (called adenosine triphosphate, or ATP) production. This happens as part of the cellular respiration process in which cells break down and convert stored energy—releasing waste products along the way.
Most researchers agree that light therapy affects adipocytes, which are cells that store fat, causing the lipids to disperse. In other words, light therapy helps the body wash away fat cells.
Light therapy may work in other ways that affect fat and weight loss. For instance, a 2012 study in the International Journal of Endocrinology showed that light can affect hunger, which could help prevent the buildup of extra fat before it even begins. This study found that red light helped control levels of the hunger-related hormones leptin and ghrelin in sleep-deprived participants.
What Does Other Research Say About Light Therapy and Fat Loss?
Besides the obvious health concerns related to obesity and excess fat, one of the primary motivating factors for people trying to lose weight has more to do with what they see in the mirror, not what they read on the scale. The concept of “body contouring” has become a commonly used term to market all sorts of therapies and treatments. Unfortunately, a lot of these either don’t work, or they produce undesirable side effects. Red light therapy, on the other hand, has proven itself be extremely effective when it comes to physically changing the way your body looks.
Ideal Light Pads cover more body area than any other system and has 4320 powerful diodes with output power of 190 mw - 35 mW/cm2. These pads are the strongest body pads currently available for the medical and aesthetic market and have brand new German Diodes that are closer together than previous Slim Sculpt Pads.
Ideal Light has new state of the art German Diodes that are closer together than Slim Sculpt Pads and a new Slim Sculpt Body Contouring Bed that more powerful than ever at 95mw/Cm2.
The new diodes that were just released are the next generation of led diodes that are closer together than before and with more diodes and more output power the Ideal Light Pad Systems are leading the way to give better results than previous models known as Slim Sculpt or Lipo Melt or Ultimate Light. I have one demo Slim Sculpt 7 pad system available to purchase.
Whole body light therapy has no negative side effects, is completely safe. The treatment itself should be done every other day until the results you desire are achieved. The length of time is determined on whether the therapy itself is being used for pain or fat loss. The unique light emitted from our device causes the fat cell membranes to temporarily alter the permeability of the cell wall. This brief change allows some of the fat contents to seep out to where it can then be processed by the body. The process also increases collagen and elastin in the skin while creating a slimmer appearance.
LED SLIM SCULPT/IDEAL LIGHT BODY PADS
HOW DOES THE IDEAL LIGHT LED PADS WORK?
Unlike conventional liposuction, the idea of noninvasive laser lipo is not to remove fat cells, but to shrink them. The laser energy penetrates down to the fat cells and creates tiny holes in their membranes. This causes the fat cells to release their stored fatty acids, glycerol, and water into the body and then shrink, potentially resulting in lost inches. The body then flushes out the expelled fat-cell contents via the lymphatic system or burns them for energy. "Think of your fat cells as groups of juicy grapes," Heather says. "The laser beam reaches the fat cell and shrinks the contents, and those grapes become raisins."
WHO'S A GOOD CANDIDATE FOR LASER LIKE LIPO OR LED WRAPS?
The pool of ideal candidates for laser liker lipo is a little bit smaller than for traditional lipo because the procedure isn't perfect for extensive weight loss. It might be right for you if you're:
- Only about 25 pounds over your ideal weight
- More concerned with "problem areas" than total-body weight loss
- In good health with good skin elasticity
HOW DOES LED THERAPY COMPARE TO LIPOSUCTION?
Traditional liposuction requires an invasive procedure to remove fat from areas such as the abdomen, thighs, neck, and arms. But there's another way to slim down without surgery or even downtime. It's called noninvasive laser like lipo using led pads. Slim Sculpt has the latest and brightest diodes available for the best and fast results possible for eliminating fat permanently from the body when used in conjunction with diet and exercise.
WHAT IS THE PROCESS LIKE?
The technician applies the pads to the targeted areas, inundating it with the wraps for 10 to 20 minutes. You are welcome to enjoy a 30 minute session if you like but it is not necessary because of the output power of the new pads.
You may see some immediate results, however it takes a couple of weeks for the body to excrete the fat through the Urine, Stool and Sweat and to be burned off. Some of the fatty acids will get re metabolized by the liver and used as fuel.
Though some clients will begin to notice results after only a few sessions, most require 6–8 sessions to see maximum results but if you need to lose more than 20 pounds it is likely you will want to do at least 12 sessions.
Two treatments per week or every other day for four to six weeks is recommended for most people but will vary depending on how much fat needs to be lost.
How Long are the Sessions?
30 Minutes. The Wrap Session 15 to 20 minutes and WBV (Whole Body Vibration – Hypervibe) 10 to 15 Minutes can be done in a fast 30 minute sessions. (Exercise right after or within 4 hours)
EWOT and Cardio Sessions is recommended or just walking. Treadmill, Bike, Rebounder, Swimming, Walking, Skiing or any exercise will help to move the lymphatic system to assist with elimination. It is highly recommended to walk 30 minutes daily during your Lipo series. Using the WBV right after the wrap.
Burning Calories, Sweating and moving lymphatic System will assist the fat elimination process.
WHAT TO DO BEFORE AND AFTER A SESSION
Avoid eating 2 hours before and after a wrap session. Drink ½ of your body weight in ounces per day and walk 30 minutes per day. No Sugar, Alcohol, Grains, Rice, Potatoes or Processed Foods should be consumed.
Getting into Ketosis will help the body use fat for fuel. Using a Pruvit Drink Mix to get into Ketosis in hours instead of days can jumpstart the fat burning process.
Using Purium’s 10 Day Transformation Diet Plan that includes Amino Acids has shown extremely positive results for most people to help build muscle and lose fat while on a low calorie diet. Highly recommended easy to follow diet to ensure success.
Sweating and burning calories in an Infrared Sauna after the wrap is ideal to speed up the elimination process.
A Detox Footbath session can also help to speed up results twice per week.
Exercise with 4 hours of the wrap is recommended with at least 20-30 minutes of walking as a minimum daily.
Because the treatment is not invasive, no downtime is required.
WHAT HAPPENS TO THE FAT?
LED Energy safely penetrates the skin at target adipose (fat) cells and the fat absorbs the light natural. The fat becomes poreous and the Fat Cells release free fatty acids (FFA’s), water and glycerol. These compounds together are also known as triglycerides. Some of the Free Fatty Acids are converted triglycerides in the liver and returned to the plasma to be used as fuel.
Trigycerides are normally released from fat cells when the body needs energy. Fatty acids and oxygen produce energy. I also use recreational oxygen and do cardio for 15 minutes right after the wrap because higher Oxygen levels in the body can enhance fat burning. I then sweat in an infrared sauna to help burn calories and release the fat cells and Toxins. Most of our toxins are stored in our fat cells so when we eliminate the toxins and excess fat we can feel better.
Detoxification is one of the most important laws of wellness which is why I also use the Ion Cleanse Footbath to accelerate detoxification process. When doing a series of footbath sessions the footbath stimulates the body to dump toxins so there is an increased level of heavy metals that can be measured in the urine and sweat when adding the footbath to the protocol. Footbaths are relaxing and make you feel like you just had a walk on the beach. Most of the toxins are stored in the fat cells so eliminating the fat and toxins go hand in hand in achieving optimal results.
It is critical to sweat, move the lymph and drink a lot of water and to flush the fat out of the body permanantly. The fat must come out through your stool/ urine bowels, bladder, sweat glands or be burned off. The fat can be used as fuel or eliminated by the body and no harm is done to the fat cells; they simply shrink to a fraction of their original size. There is no instant fat loss and it takes weeks for the body to process the fatty acids in the blood stream so results are delayed but if consistent and diet and exercise is continued the results can be amazing.
Lipo Melt/Ultimate Light had the latest German Microchip Technology and with 4924 diodes and a Face Mask with an output power of 100 mw cm2 but now they are no longer being made since the introduction of the new more powerful Ideal Light pads at 190 mw.
Metabolism and Other Fat Loss Methods to Kill Fat Cells
Cryo is another new method that can help to stimulate and raise the body’s metabolism, improve blood circulation and improve muscle tone and burn calories. Cryo is an excellent way to release endorphins that are normally triggered by exercise to help boost mood and concentration. You can go into a Cryo Chamber for 3 minutes for a whole body treatment or use a device like Cryo 21 that is designed for body contouring and fat removal without surgery. Cryo 21 facilitates a thermal shock by reducing the temperature of fat cells, causing them to die-off in a natural way. This natural die-off process is called apoptosis which results in a gradual degeneration of fat cells and their evacuation of dead fat cells.
(Cryo (cold) Lipolysis (breaking down of fat)) of fat cells. These studies show that when cold is administered to white fat, it will promote growth of new blood vessels turning white fat to brown fat. It is much easier for the body to metabolize brown fat. Cryo Is used for the final fat loss after using the Slim Sculpt or for problem areas.
Apoptosis of fat cells occur when the machine reduces the temperature in the area from 34 °C to only 8 °C and without the client feeling cold. After 4-6 treatments it is not unusual for the clients to lose up to 12 cm around the waist or 5 sizes and this is accomplished permanently without any kind of surgery. Use very 2 weeks over a period of 3 months.
Take a look at the highlights of these clinical studies:
A study in the Journal of Obesity Surgery researched red light therapy for body contouring. This 2011 double-blind, randomized study performed light therapy at 635-680 nanometers (nm) on participants for four weeks and recorded effects on the waistline. At the end of study, participants had achieved a statistically significant reduction in waistline girth.
- In a similar study published in Lasers in Surgery Medicine, participants who received light therapy showed a significant reduction in overall circumference, including each part of the body. Researchers concluded that light therapy can cut down on the circumference of the specific areas that are treated.
- A 2013 study in the same journal also found benefits from red light therapy at 635 nm for contouring the hips, thighs, and waist. At the end of the trial, researchers found a mean loss of 2.99 inches in overall body size compared to the starting point. Separately, the thigh, waist, and hip areas all showed a reduction too. Researchers concluded that red light therapy at this level and wavelength was safe and clinically effective (Figure A).Figure A: Comparison of inches lost between Test Group and Placebo Group.
Conclusion: The Data Shows That Red Light Therapy Truly Does Enhance Weight and Fat Loss and is an adjunct to obesity when combined with diet and exercise. These are General Wellness Products and have a low risk to users safety. No Physician or license is required to offer the service to others.
Overall, red light therapy has shown positive results for fat loss and body contouring across several different clinical studies. This type of therapy offers a safe, non-invasive alternative for helping people improve their looks and their overall health. It’s time to add weight and fat loss to the long list of light therapy benefits!
