The Research: Benefits of Infrared Nasal Therapy

Reduce Inflamation & Breathe Easier

Before I knew the scientifically proven benefits of infrared light, I fell in love with my infrared nasal therapy device. I was pleasantly surprised by the comfort and calming effect of the gentle lights. 

Incredibly easy to use, and I find myself hooked on the benefits, using it for 30 minutes daily while working on my computer, watching television, or simply lying down.

Scientifically Proven Benefits


Infrared light therapy possesses anti-inflammatory properties and can effectively alleviate inflammation in specific conditions. This therapeutic light can effortlessly penetrate the skin, accessing deep underlying tissues to encourage improved blood flow and stimulate cellular activity.

During the course of Infrared Nasal therapy, patients experienced significant improvement in symptoms like eye itching, nasal itching, nasal stuffiness, rhinorrhea, and sneezing. Smell impairment also showed improvement.

ABSTRACT

Allergic rhinitis (AR) is the sixth most common chronic illness worldwide, which has a significant impact on patients’ quality of life. The actual cost of AR is staggering, approximately $5.6 billion being spent annually in direct medical costs and other indirect costs. Therefore, it should be taken seriously upon its evaluation and treatment. AR is an IgE-mediated inflammation, which symptoms are likely due to increased vascular permeability. Current therapeutic options such as avoidance of allergen, medication and immunotherapy are unsatisfactory. Far-infrared (FIR) is an invisible electromagnetic wave with a wavelength longer than that of visible light. It has been used to treat vascular diseases as a result of an increase in blood flow. The objective of this study was to evaluate the clinical effects of FIR therapy in patients with AR. Thirty-one patients with AR were enrolled in this study. A WS TY101 FIR emitter was placed to face the patient’s nasal region at a distance of 30 cm. The treatment was performed for 40 min every morning for 7 days. Every day, patients recorded their symptoms in a diary before and during treatment. Each symptom of rhinitis was rated on a 4-point scale (0-3) according to severity. During the period of FIR therapy, the symptoms of eye itching, nasal itching, nasal stuffiness, rhinorrhea and sneezing were all significantly improved. Smell impairment was not improved until after the last treatment. No obvious adverse effect was observed in the patients during treatment and follow-up. We concluded that FIR therapy could improve the symptoms of AR and might serve as a novel treatment modality for AR.

Low-Intensity Laser Therapy As a Method to Reduce Stress Responses after Septoplasty.

Source

[Dokl Biochem Biophys] 2021 Sep; Vol. 500 (1), pp. 300-303. Date of Electronic Publication: 2021 Oct 25.

Background

The aim of the study was to evaluate the effectiveness of the use of photobiomodulation therapy (PBMT) to minimize acute pain in the early postoperative period in patients after septoplasty. In total, 62 patients underwent septoplasty under general anesthesia (40 men and 22 women, 18-44 years old) followed by nasal tamponade.

Conclusion

The use of PBMT after septoplasty against the background of nasal tamponade helps to reduce the severity of pain syndrome and the inflammatory response to surgical stress and, consequently, leads to less pronounced changes in the autonomic nervous system in response to surgical stress.

American journal of rhinology & allergy [Am J Rhinol Allergy] 2023 Jan; Vol. 37 (1), pp. 65-73. Date of Electronic Publication: 2022 Oct 20.

Background

Intranasal phototherapy offers an alternative treatment method for patients with allergic rhinitis who cannot benefit from intranasal corticosteroids and oral antihistamines. Different wavelengths have been tried with promising results.

Conclusion

Four-week course of intranasal phototherapy with visible and infrared light leads to clinical improvement in allergic rhinitis patients.
