Beneficial properties of sunlight
Sunlight consists of all types of the invisible spectrum, which includes the ultraviolet and infrared spectra, as well as the visible (violet, blue, green, yellow, orange and red colors). All sunlight consists of approximately 10% of ultraviolet radiation, 40% is visible light and 50% is infrared radiation. This percentage is almost the same in all seasons, only the intensity of the light flux changes.
Different spectra of sunlight differ in the long wavelength and frequency of oscillations, which determines their physical characteristics and different effects on physiological processes.
Ultraviolet, violet and blue rays are assigned to short-wave radiation, green, yellow and orange are assigned to medium rays, and red and infrared rays are assigned to long-wave ones.
Therefore, the use of sunlight for preventive and therapeutic purposes is as old as humanity itself. Sunlight, air and water have always been the most accessible healing factors for humans and animals.
The mechanisms of the influence of light on living cells of animal and plant origin.
- Transfer of energy from the membrane to the cell, increasing its potential activity.
-Education of physiologically active compounds in tissues
-Starting secondary neurohumoral processes and urgent adaptation processes
- Development of final photobiological effects or long-term adaptation
Therapeutic effect is associated with:
-With activation of molecules and cells
-With activation of microcirculation in biological tissue
-With potentiation of biochemical processes
-With potentiation of physical processes
Photoactivated processes in the body.
The visible spectrum of light has on the body:
Activation and microcirculation of the thymus gland
Changes in the level of PG (prostaglandins)
Equalization of osmotic pressure
Takani swelling reduction
Superoxide dismutase and catalase reactivation
Reduced lipid peroxidation
Activation of neuronal metabolism
Increased pain threshold
Activation of microcirculation
Interstitial fluid disposal
Stimulating effect on reparative processes
ATP accumulation (adenosine triphosphate)
Activation of cell metabolism
An increase in the number of fibroplasts and other cells
Stimulating effect on regenerative processes
Acceleration of defect epithelization
Acceleration of protein and collagen synthesis
Acceleration of capillary formation
Stimulating effect on the immune response
Increased immune cell proliferation
Accelerating the maturation of immune cells
Increased Immune Globulin Reproduction
Irritation of nerve endings
Excitation of nerve centers
Stimulation of physiological functions
The main effects of the visible spectrum of light
-activation of hemoglobin
-recovery of the Krebs cycle
-stimulation of immune systems
-activation of metabolism
-exposure to the autonomic nervous system
- reduces spasm of smooth muscles
- reduces the activity of tropic harmonies
-increases the activity of tropic harmonies
-activation of metabolism
