Red Light for Female Hormone Balance

I have been using red light therapy for many years to treat a wide variety of conditions, including skin problems, migraines, and even to balance estrogen levels.  

You might be wondering what red light is all about, so let me explain. Various wavelengths of red light easily penetrate the skin and stimulate energy production within the mitochondria, the energy-producing parts of the cells. They enable the energy from food to be released and trapped as high-energy bonds called adenosine triphosphate (ATP). ATP is found in all of our cells and releases energy needed to fuel nearly all chemical reactions in our bodies. So, red light therapy helps our bodies create energy, vitality, and stamina, so every tissue and organ system can run more efficiently. 

If you suffer from PMS, irregular menstrual cycles, menstrual cramps, or menopause symptoms like hot flashes or night sweats, red light therapy can be a powerful treatment. For example, if you are post-menopausal, your ovaries and adrenal glands continue to produce small amounts of estrogen and male hormones, even though you no longer menstruate. Red light therapy helps to maximize their production, balancing out your estrogen levels and providing your tissues with more hormonal support. 

You can use red light therapy right in your own home with specially designed hand-held devices. Two red light devices I use and have been recommending for years are the X-Light from the Chee Energy Company and the Red Light-Shaker from the Light Energy Company.
