Learn the Healing Benefits of Phototherapy

post 95

Fluorescent lighting is used worldwide to provide healing benefits for a number of various medical ailments.   Treatment with light is called phototherapy, and is very effective to treat many conditions.

Skin Conditions Treated with Phototherapy

The use of phototherapy to treat skin conditions such as psoriasis is endorsed by the National Psoriasis Foundation when treated under a doctor’s care.  Indoor tanning beds are not the same as phototherapy for psoriasis as they do not emit the same UV light as prescribed by a doctor.

Ultraviolet light in the UVB range provides the most effective treatment for psoriasis.  Patients are often sent home with a special treatment lamp to receive the proper amount of UVB rays.  This is effective by slowing down production of new skin cells and allows the area to heal.

Ultraviolet light is also effective at treating many other skin conditions such as acne and eczema, and reduces the symptoms of inflamed and itchy skin.

UV Light Provides Phototherapy to Treat Jaundice

Jaundice is most common in newborn babies and occurs when the liver does not break down toxins as a fully functioning liver would.  UV light is effective at breaking down bilirubin and new parents can be sent home with these ‘bili’ lights to nurture their baby’s liver into a fully functioning state.

Diabetes Improved with Light Therapy

People suffering from diabetes can benefit greatly from phototherapy.  Ultraviolet light is highly effective at aiding would healing by killing bacteria and fighting infection.  UV light is also used to treat diabetic retinopathy, a serious eye condition that is the leading cause of blindness in people between the ages of 20 and 64.  Diabetic Retinopathy damages the retina in 80% of diabetics that have had diabetes for more than 20 years.

The good news is that this is preventable if treated early.  Phototherapy lessens the progression of this disease in 90% of all cases.

Depression and Mood Disorders Benefit from Phototherapy

People suffering from depression and mood disorders benefit greatly from phototherapy.  Exposure to UV light enhances the mood of those suffering from seasonal affective disorder when the daylight hours are lessened during winter months.  People often feel better within one week of treatment.  Consistency is key for phototherapy to be effective at treating mood disorders.
