Light Therapy

It’s that time of year again.  The days are getting shorter, and the sightings of the sun are getting fewer and further between.  Don’t let that get your down!!

At Elite Healthcare, we offer the benefits of Vitamin D & Far infrared light therapy right in the office!

The D Lite System, the first of its kind in the country, is a 12-lamp system that produces ONLY UVB rays. It is designed for those of you who want the benefits of the sun without tanning. If you shun the sun, suffer from milk allergies, or adhere to a strict vegetarian diet, you may be at risk for vitamin D deficiency.Known as the sunshine vitamin, vitamin D is produced by the body in response to sunlight. It is also occurs naturally in a few foods — including some fish, fish liver oils, and egg yolks — and in fortified dairy and grain products.

Vitamin D is essential for strong bones because it helps the body use calcium from the diet. Traditionally, vitamin D deficiency has been associated with rickets, a disease in which the bone tissue doesn’t properly mineralize, leading to soft bones and skeletal deformities. But increasingly, research is revealing the importance of vitamin D in protecting against a host of health problems.

In addition, the phosphor formula used to make the lamps in the D Lite unit produces UVB light and red visible light, a very beneficial feature because deep penetrating red light therapy is a non invasive, risk-free alternative to all sorts of skin problems, skin appearance and has been proven to be effective for all sorts of pain. Red light easily penetrates the skin, boosts circulation and bringing more blood and nutrients to the area. It also stimulates vital collagen and elastin production. Collagen helps plump the skin, while elastin firms the skin. The red light is energizing and repairing damaged cells, stimulating collagen and elastin and giving the skin back its youthful look. Red light therapy for pain relief is a gentle, non-invasive, drug-free, and chemical-free alternative that has been shown to reduce and in some cases even eliminate aches and pains.

They recommend the use of any Mercola Tanning Systems as a safe and effective way to help you achieve natural levels of Vitamin D.
