The role of non-drug strategies in reducing the risk of cardiovascular complications in women with metabolic syndrome during the menopausal transition

TLDR
In patients with MPS and MS, non-drug programs using physical therapy have a positive effect on the functioning of the endocrine system, hemostasis, carbohydrate and fat metabolism which helps reduce the risk of cardiovascular events.

Experience with non-drug strategies in women with metabolic syndrome during the menopausal transition: a focus on cardiovascular risk

TLDR
In patients with MPS and MS, non-drug programs using physical therapy have a positive effect on the functioning of the endocrine system, hemostasis, carbohydrate and fat metabolism which helps reduce the risk of cardiovascular events.

Effects of Pulsed-Wave Chromotherapy and Guided Relaxation on the Theta-Alpha Oscillation During Arrest Reaction

The search for the best wellness practice has promoted the development of devices integrating different technologies and guided meditation. However, the final effects on the electrical activity of

Effects of Maharishi Light Technology with Gems: A random-assignment, placebo-controlled, blinded pilot study

TLDR
These treatments lead to significant improvements on self-report measures, and future research could assess their effects across both meditating and nonmeditating populations, using physiological measures to probe possible mechanisms of the effects.

Light and Circadian Signaling Pathway in Pregnancy: Programming of Adult Health and Disease

TLDR
The impact of light, the circadian clock, and circadian signaling pathways in pregnancy and fetal development is outlined and how to induce maternal chronodisruption in animal models is shown.

Pills or Sleep Deprivation? Sleep-Deprivation as a Therapeutic Option Intervention in Psychiatry

TLDR
The use of sleep deprivation in clinical conditions is aimed primarily at preventing depression and its recurrence, as well as in cases resistant to pharmacotherapy, and should be used under close supervision of a physician.

Virtual Reality as a Portable Alternative to Chromotherapy Rooms for Stress Relief: A Preliminary Study

TLDR
The use of virtual reality (VR) is proposed as an inexpensive and portable alternative to chromotherapy rooms for stress relief and the preliminary results validate the approach.

Paradoxos de Retroalimentação da Pandemia da Covid-19: quebrando o ciclo

TLDR
A exposicao cronica ao estresse decorrente do isolamento social associado a massiva informacao de cunho negativo pode promover alteracoes no eixo psico-neuro-endocrino-imune e aumentar o risco de morbimortalidade e predisposicao a infeccao viral.

A Critical Analysis of Chromotherapy and Its Scientific Evolution

TLDR
A critical analysis of chromotherapy is undertaken and it is illustrated that the development of science in the field of electromagnetic radiation/energy can be very helpful in discovering new dimensions of this old theory.

EFFECTS OF VISIBLE RADIATION ON CULTURED CELLS

TLDR
In these studies, red (632.8 nm), far red (694.3 nm) and near IR (890-904 nm) wavelengths have been used and the problem of interest is whether light treatment can stimulate the proliferation of residual tumor cells, if present.

Effects of low-power light therapy on wound healing: LASER x LED*

TLDR
LED and LASER promote similar biological effects, such as decrease of inflammatory cells, increased fibroblast proliferation, stimulation of angiogenesis, granulation tissue formation and increased synthesis of collagen, which are dependent on irradiation parameters, mainly wavelength and dose.

"Quantum Leap" in Photobiomodulation Therapy Ushers in a New Generation of Light-Based Treatments for Cancer and Other Complex Diseases: Perspective and Mini-Review.

TLDR
Studies support what is described as a paradigm shift or "quantum leap" in the understanding and use of light and its interaction with water and other relevant photo-cceptors to restore physiologic function.

Proposed Mechanisms of Photobiomodulation or Low-Level Light Therapy

TLDR
After the initial photon absorption events, numerous signaling pathways are activated via reactive oxygen species, cyclic AMP, NO, and Ca2+, leading to activation of transcription factors, which can lead to increased expression of genes related to protein synthesis, cell migration and proliferation,Anti-inflammatory signaling, anti-apoptotic proteins, and antioxidant enzymes.

Mechanism of Visible Light Phototoxicity on Porphyromonas gingivalis and Fusobacterium nucleatum

TLDR
The results support the assumption that the phototoxic effect of blue light on the periopathogenic bacteria is oxygen dependent and that hydroxyl radicals play an important role in this process.

Effects of different colours in the visible region on Leishmania Tropica

TLDR
Investigation of wavelength-dependency of chromotherapy effects on cutaneous Leishmaniasis parasite growth showed that red colour (644 nm) wavelength inhibited the growth of parasite while other colour wavelengths also affected the Growth of parasite.

Colors as catalysts in enzymatic reactions.

Lightening up Light Therapy: Activation of Retrograde Signaling Pathway by Photobiomodulation

TLDR
In this review, the role of COX in the photobiomodulation will be discussed and a possible role of water as a photoreceptor will be suggested.
