In June 2010, my wife Kinna was admitted to the hospital with a ruptured bowel. She spent 11 days in the hospital, and when she was released, spent another 14 days attached to IV antibiotics at home. This actually started us on a journey that has changed our lives.
Kinna has had Rheumatoid Arthritis since the age of 26. In addition to that, she also has Fibromyalgia and Osteo Arthritis. For many years she was prescribed anti inflammatory medicines for the inflammation and pain associated with her disease. For several years she had to use the assistance of a cane to walk.

History of Light Therapy
The Life Light device has been 6 years in development. It has gone through 3 prototypes phases and is now in 3rd generation production phase.
FDA Registration Number: 3010772932
Benefits of Light Therapy and why it works
The Mitochondria are thought to be the likely site for the initial effects of light, which leads to increased ATP production, modulation of reactive oxygen species, and induction of transcription factors. These effects in turn lead to increased cell proliferation and migration (particularly by fibroblasts), modulation in levels of cytokines, growth factors and inflammatory mediators, and increased tissue oxygenation.
The results of the biochemical and cellular changes in animals and people when using LLLT therapy include such benefits as increased healing of chronic wounds, improvements in sports injuries and carpal tunnel syndrome, pain reduction in arthritis and neuropathies, and amelioration of damage after heart attacks, stroke, nerve injury, retinal toxicity, and much more.
I own and operate a chiropractic office in Canada and we have a high number of athletes, ranging from Olympians and professionals to weekend warriors. I have an office whose auxiliary equipment reflects this cliental. Having just purchased the life light, I myself got hurt. I pulled a calf muscle early Sunday morning while playing tennis. It was a very humid morning and I was dehydrated from a social event the night before. The pain was incredibly intense. It took me several minutes to get to my car. This was my dilemma: I had a golf match in a few hours for our playoffs in our club championships that I could not re-schedule. With the pain being so intense, it was try and play or forfeit. I decided to drive to my office and used several life light protocols for approximately one hour and a few Advil’s. I attempted to try and golf. Amazingly, with a golf cart and a significant limp, I got a round and was able to play (and win) my match. There was absolutely no way two hours prior…
“ I’ve been using light therapy for a couple of years with positive results in relieving joint pain and inflammation. When Rick advised me to try using the Life Light device for a sinus infection I was a bit skeptical but I followed his recommendation. After 4 treatments over the course of a weekend I was back practicing Monday morning – no headache, no runny nose and my energy levels were back to normal. I can’t wait to keep exploring the clinical benefits of light therapy with my patients. Thanks Life Light”
In the brief period that I have been able to use the Life Light in my practice, I have been able to see incredible results with my patients! This tool has been able to help my patients get results much faster than I have been to achieve in the past. One of the first patients that I used the Life Light on came in after severely spraining his ankle playing soccer. After 3 sessions of the Life Light over a 4 day period, his swelling was completely gone and he had full range of motion with NO PAIN! After 8 days, he was back on the field competing again. After seeing results like this from using Life Light, I can’t help but wish that I had this tool for myself back when I was in high school and college! The results that my patients have seen have them excited and recommending the Life Light to their friends and other patients! This is a tremendous tool that will be valuable in any health care office. I’m excited to see how many more people I will be able to help in the…
Dear Life Light, My name is Sergio Franco. I had an unfortunate accident on January 21st 2014 that left me with a severely broken left leg. The tibia and fibula bones were both broken which required surgery. After surgery I started the healing process. The treatment and knowledge I have received has been invaluable. I began walking again a couple months after the accident. However I plateaued a bit after a certain stage in my recovery. It was then, that I was offered the opportunity to try something new and different with the Life Light Infrared machine. At first I was skeptical, but the relief I experienced after the first session with the machine was amazing. This machine became pivotal in my recovery by speeding up the healing process, reducing swelling, reducing pain and helping regain flexibility. I am forever grateful for all the benefits of the Life Light Infrared Machine. Kind Regards, Sergio Franco
Patient with severe post concussion symptoms from a motor vehicle accident suffered from nausea, multiple headaches daily, and blurry vision. I used the Life Light machine on her, headaches disappeared, nausea is gone. I am very impressed.
