How Turquoise Light Therapy Works
Before we dive into the specifics of Turquoise Light Therapy, let’s briefly review Polychromatic Light Therapy. PLT is a novel form of treatment involving the use of more than one color of light at once. By applying different combinations of wavelengths (colors) simultaneously, a range of additional benefits can be experienced — with ongoing research discovering more all the time.
The patent-pending Visum Light combines the three primary colors — red, blue, and green — to create what are known as “additive colors.” Additive colors provide the body with multiple benefits — each of the primary colors involved, as well as the combined color visible to the eye when using the Visum Light. And for even more added benefit, all colors can also employ near-infrared (NIR) light at the same time. This allows for deeper penetration and all the established benefits of NIR.
The most exciting thing about Polychromatic Light Therapy research is its infancy. There’s a great deal more yet to be discovered — and the more we learn about the many benefits of the primary colors, the more questions are raised about the potential of their many combinations.
Alongside the scientific research, the Visum Light draws inspiration from a number of pioneers in Color Healing Theory, including Roland T. Hunt and his 1971 book, “Seven Keys to Color Healing.” This multifaceted approach embraces the entire spectrum of LED Light Therapy, incorporating the latest scientific research with theoretical insights into Color Healing’s metaphysical understanding.
Properties of Turquoise Light Therapy
According to Color Healing Theory, blue light controls the Laryngeal Chakram, believed to be the body’s creative center due to the powers of speech. Blue light is said to ease the worried and nervous mind, bringing peace and calm. Combined with its cooling antiseptic qualities, blue light can aid both body and mind in a number of ways. These insights are reflected in the science as well, easing everything from psoriasis to Seasonal Affective Disorder.
Color Healing Theory goes on to describe green light as a harmonizer and balancer of mind and body — where pain, wounds and headaches are found, green light eases these disruptions, providing accelerated healing and pain relief to bring the body back to equilibrium. The latest research reflects these theories, as illustrated in the list of links below.
Additional research has found that turquoise light can also be used to stimulate the vagus nerve. Also called the pneumogastric nerve, it helps control heart, lung and digestive tract function, including the gut microbiome — which has recently garnered a great deal of attention as a vital ecosystem that affects nearly every aspect of your health.
