Also referred to as Low-Level Laser (light) Therapy is a minimally invasive treatment successfully used at Anatara Medicine when dealing with a number of diseases and conditions.

Photobiomodulation / Low-Level Laser Therapy

Photobiomodulation (PBM), previously known as low-level laser (light) therapy (LLLT), is a treatment approach that uses visible and near-infrared light with a wavelength from 450 to 1100 nm to trigger photochemical changes within intracellular structures.

PBM has been used safely for over 50 years and studied in various diseases such as:

  • muscle atrophy
  • wound healing
  • pain relief
  • stroke/ischemic heart disease¹
  • orthodontic mini-implant stability
  • arthritis
  • hair loss
  • neurodegenerative diseases
  • vasculature of post-viral patients²

Photobiomodulation (PBM) is a safe form of non-thermal light therapy which has been shown in the literature to effectively mitigate conditions, such as:

  • mitochondrial dysfunction
  • reactive oxidative stress
  • inflammation
  • gut microbiota dysbiosis

These conditions are inherent in complex chronic illnesses like Lyme, Bartonella, Viruses and Mold/Biotoxin illness.

PBM aka “laser” therapy is a time-tested, evidence based and minimally invasive treatment modality that can be administered intravenously with very few side effects. At Anatara Medicine we offer the Weber endolaser IV system which has been well-studied and safely used in Germany for over 20 years.

Light Frequency Benefits

Each light frequency will have an affinity or resonance with certain tissue types and physiological processes. For example:

  • The red and near infrared spectrum of light is effective in stimulating the immune system and improving blood viscosity.
  • The green and blue frequencies are effective in modulating acute pain, increasing blood supply to a region and nitric oxide production as well as bactericidal effects.
  • The ultraviolet spectrum is anti-viral and anti-bacterial.
  • The yellow frequency has anti-inflammatory, anti-anxiety and detoxificationeffects that seem to be effective in “die off”/Herxheimer reactions as well as histamine-based / MAST cell activation.
