Using light therapy to help the body lower inflammation in this research from Harvard. AIMS Biophys. 2017;4(3):337-361. doi: 10.3934/biophy.2017.3.337. Epub 2017 May 19. Mechanisms and applications of the anti-inflammatory effects of photobiomodulation. Hamblin MR1,2,3. Author information Abstract Photobiomodulation (PBM) also known as low-level level laser therapy is the use of red and near-infrared light to stimulate healing, relieve pain, and reduce inflammation. The primary chromophores have been identified as cytochrome c oxidase in mitochondria, and calcium ion channels (possibly mediated by light absorption by opsins). Secondary effects of photon absorption...
