The Science of How Color & Light Impact Mitochondrial Health, Brain Function & Sleep

  1. 1. The Science of How Color & Light Impact Mitochondrial Health, Brain Function & Sleep Leanne Venier BSME CPAOBTA Engineer, Medical Researcher, Inventor, Eastern Medicine Physician, Artist
  2. 2. From Engineering to Art to Teaching MD’s (25 years in 25 seconds) • Engineer & submarine designer at Lockheed • 7 years in Italy studying alternative medicine & psychology. Connecting dots: Ancient & modern healing ⇄ Color, Light & Energy Medicine • Back to US & Canada for Eastern Medicine training • Healing practice working with cancer patients • 2007 – started painting as Creative Flow practice Global recognition in 1st year. Conversations on how we crave color like nutrients • 2010 • Added my color system info to website 2010 – 2018 • Invited to share research: major medical centers, MENSA, NBC-TV, brain & neuroscience organizations • Spreading Global awareness validating Light Therapy with Science. YouTube, writings, interviews • Regular speaking invitations – conferences, national radio, podcasts • Nov 2016 REDjuvenator Invention: Light Therapy + Energy Medicine. Case studies & 2 Medical research studies.
  3. 3. The Basics Color & Light are Synonymous We require them for Optimal Health Evolution: Sunlight & Nature
  4. 4. Sunshine is a necessary nutrient We evolved to live & thrive in Sunlight & Healing Energies in Nature, like plants ‘Color Vitamins’ are as Important Nutrients as Food & Water Full Spectrum ‘Multi- vitamin’ Effect
  5. 5. We also need an abundance of Qi/Prana/Life Force Energy Vital Energy that keeps us healthy & vibrant Abundant in nature, deficient in Cities
  6. 6. Modern Lifestyles Living in Cities, often Indoors & Disconnected from Sunlight & Healing Energies in Nature = DIS-ease
  7. 7. Blue Light: Healthy & Necessary … during DAYTIME EYES: Blue Light Photosensitive retinal ganglion cells regulate photic entrainment (circadian rhythm) Evolution & Survival: Daytime Blue Light Shuts OFF Melatonin production via pineal gland
  8. 8. BLUE light after dusk: Unnatural & Unhealthy Shuts OFF melatonin production via eyes causing insomnia Via both Eyes & SKIN When blue light goes away, RED light turns ON Melatonin Production
  9. 9. How is Color, Light & Qi absorbed by the body? …
  10. 10. 1. Photons of Colored Light enter EYES Blue Light – Sets circadian rhythm – daytime, too much can harm eyes Reflected/Indirect Color from Objects Colored (Direct) Light Red Light –Sets circadian rhythm – nighttime, can heal eyes
  11. 11. 2. Photons absorbed via SKIN Red & Near IR on Skin boost Mitochondria, heal Skin, Muscle, Joints, Brain & induce Sleep Sunbathing. Long history of healing (heliotherapy) Sunlight Multi-vitamin effect LED Isolated Vitamin effect Neonatal Jaundice
  12. 12. 3. Photons & other Energies (Qi) travel via Energy Meridians (Channels) - Treat Systemic Imbalances Deep inside body & brain Heat IR imagery – Dr. Popp Bladder Meridian. Very important energy carrier (both sides of spine) Connects with all channels via Spine Like a power strip …
  13. 13. Why do we need Sunlight & other Healing Energies (Qi/Prana) found in nature?
  14. 14. Cells & DNA Absorb & Emit Light - Biophotons • Kobayashi Lab, Kyoto University, Japan, 2009 Biophoton CCD photography Bio = biological Photon = ultra weak light emission • All LIVING Cells absorb & emit Light Dr. Fritz Albert Popp – biophysicist Photons & Qi/Prana in nature are NUTRIENTS for the human body, like plants use sunlight for photosynthesis
  15. 15. Mitochondrial Health RED Light & NEAR Infrared stimulate Mitochondria & ATP Production via the SKIN (Note: NOT Mid or Far Infrared)
  16. 16. RED Light (~600-700 nm) & NEAR Infrared (~700-1000 nm) Heal Skin, Muscle, Bones, Joints, Nerves & Brain & Boost cellular immune response Department of Dermatology, Harvard Medical School (Huang, Mroz, Hamblin, 2009) Red or NEAR infrared Cytochrome C-oxidase cascade mechanism stimulates ATP Production In cells
  17. 17. Thousands of peer-reviewed PubMed & other published research studies since 1968: RED & NIR stimulate Mitochondria to Regenerate Skin, Muscle, Bones, Joints • Skin Regeneration, collagen boosting & anti- aging – RED or NIR • Skin disorders, inflammation & infections – RED or NIR • Muscular inflammation & pain – RED or NIR • Muscle performance & recovery – RED or NIR • Joint pain & inflammation – NIR • Broken bones, bone regeneration – NIR (or RED for small bones) • RED Light Interferes with UVA photoaging damage & prevents DNA telomere shortening (2014 Aviation Medicine Research Laboratory, Air Force Hospital, Beijing) • Autoimmune Multiple Sclerosis via immune response (2012 University of Wisconsin, Muili 2012) – RED • Cold sores & shingles (herpes simplex & zoster) via cellular immune response - RED & NIR

  35. 35. All COLORS combine to form White Light … RGB: All LED Screens Our eyes SEE white light but it’s all colors
  36. 36. All Colors in SunLIGHT … plus Invisible Rays UV & IR 43% of Sunlight is Visible Colored Light = Natural Light Therapy Beneficial rays penetrate atmosphere, UV, Colored Light & IR
  37. 37. All Light contains Color All Colors are in SunLIGHT (ROYGBIV) … plus Invisible Rays UV & IR 43% of Sunlight is Visible Colored Light = Natural Light Therapy Beneficial rays penetrate atmosphere, UV, Colored Light & IR
  38. 38. Sun’s Energy includes VISIBLE + INvisible Rays ULTRAVIOLET Radiation = Above VIOLET Light (Invisible) UVA | UVB INFRARED Radiation = Below RED Light (Invisible) Far-IR | Mid-IR | Near-IR ALL Wavelengths have beneficial properties (Sunlight or LED)
  39. 39. … in natural Sunlight or Artificial Light LED White LightsSunlight – multi-vitamin effect
  40. 40. We NEED & USE all Sun’s Rays for Optimal Health & Brain Function • 2009 – Kobayashi Lab, Japan. CCD Camera • All Living Cells absorb & emit Light (Biophotons, ultra weak photon (light) emissions from biological systems) • Think of Light Wavelengths as NUTRIENTS for the human body, just like plants use sunlight for photosynthesis
  41. 41. Biophoton Emissions can be used for Diagnostics (ex. Cancer tumor in mouse)
  42. 42. Certain Red & Blue Wavelengths Control Melatonin Production & Circadian Rhythm via EYES & SKIN
  43. 43. Let’s focus on RED, NEAR IR & BLUE Light … How do they Affect the Body & Brain via the Skin & Eyes?
  44. 44. The Implications are Vast Ex. Melatonin for Alzheimer's disease & cancer 2002 Apr; Cardinali DP1, Brusco LI, Liberczuk C, Furio AM. Department of Physiology, Faculty of Medicine, University of Buenos Aires, Argentina • Melatonin secretion is greatly inhibited in Alzheimer’s patients – about 45% suffer from sleep disruption & sundowning agitation • Melatonin treatment improved sleep, suppressed sundowning and SLOWS EVOLUTION of cognitive impairment in Alzheimer’s patients. Melatonin is a vitally important HORMONE & ANTI-OXIDANT for optimal health & preventing & healing cancer. MOST people are deficient due to avoidance of sunlight.
  45. 45. Modern research uses LED Technology to isolate Single Wavelengths Synergistic benefits from COMBINING wavelengths RED (visible) & Near Infrared (invisible) LEDs (Pictured: REDjuvenator #3 Universal) RED & Blue LEDs (Pictured: REDjuvenator #4 Bacteria Buster)
  46. 46. Heals skin – Eczema, Dermatitis, Rosacea After 15 3-minute treatments over 6 weeks
  47. 47. Harvard 2009 NEAR IR LED for Depression & Anxiety • 2 weeks after a single 4-minute treatment, all participants improved dramatically in both Depression & Anxiety scores • Department of Psychiatry, Harvard Medical School; Schiffer, Hamblin et al (2009)
  48. 48. Red Light on SKIN increased Melatonin & improved Sleep Quality & performance of Female Basketball Players (2012) • 14-day whole-body irradiation for 30 minutes with red-light improved sleep, serum melatonin level & endurance performance 2012 Dec; PMCID: PMC3499892 Jiexiu Zhao, PhD, * Ye Tian, PhD, * Jinlei Nie, PhD, Jincheng Xu, MSS, and Dongsen Liu, MS, China Institute of Sport Science, Department of Kinesiology, Macao Polytechnic Institute, China
  49. 49. Eyes – Mollie & Retinal Disease Reversal • Add retinal imagery before & after • Add vision scores before and after
