  • thyroid light therapy

Would you have ever thought that you can improve your thyroid health with nothing more than light?

Well, here at Forefront Health we like to practice what we preach.

So, as I write this I’m sitting in front of my own homemade thyroid light-therapy lamp.

It’s the same exact light therapy lamp that I’m going to share with you in just a minute.

It’s the one I’ve been recommending to clients for the past few years.

And it costs less than $25, which should be an affordable invest for almost anyone.

In fact, it might be one of the cheapest investments you can make in your health.

While using light-therapy has many health benefits, I often recommend it my clients to help with a number of common thyroid symptoms and/or conditions such as:

So, I hope you use it and take advantage of the therapeutic benefits it can provide you.

In Part 1 of this post on “How to Get Off Your Thyroid Medication Using Light Therapy”, I talked about how “low level laser (light) therapy” (LLLT) is being used to effectively treat hypothyroidism.

And it’s helping people restore healthy thyroid hormone levels without the need for thyroid medication by activating an important enzyme called “cytochrome c oxidase”.

The LLLT devices used today for this thyroid light therapy involve the use of expensive lasers that can cost on the order of thousands of dollars.

And while LED (light emitting diode) technology can also be used in a similar fashion, these devices can cost on the order of hundreds to thousands of dollars. Plus they require precise specifications to match what is achieved with lasers.

This is why it’s often better to recommend something simpler and more cost-effective that anyone can use while still providing significant therapeutic results.

And that’s what I’ll be sharing with you in just a second.

But before I do, I want to answer a common question I’ve been getting because odds are you might have asked wondered the same thing.

Can You Use More Sunlight In Place of Light Therapy?

The short answer is, not exactly.

While getting adequate sunlight is important and has been shown to have numerous therapeutic effects… light therapy is different.

With LLLT or light therapy in general, we are focusing on specific parts of the light spectrum that are well researched and known to improve thyroid function and metabolism.

Sunlight itself is full spectrum, meaning that it contains larger amounts of damaging UV and blue light than the therapeutic red and infrared light that we want.

According to Dr. Michael Hamblin – Harvard Professor and Infrared Therapy Expert

Sun probably provides 20-30 millwatts/sq centimeter of near infrared….so it’s beneficial, but it’s not nearly as powerful as the LEDs [and lasers]… To get the correct dosage from the sun, you’d need to worry about UV exposure, and it would be better if you were on a higher altitude.

– Michael Hamblin

So, yes… you need to get plenty of sunlight.

However, light therapy allows us to achieve greater therapeutic effects by using higher concentrations of therapeutic light that contains far less concentrated damaging light.

You can see this by looking at the graph below…

Notice how sunlight contains a much higher percentage of UV and blue light than it does in the therapeutic spectrum noted by the black box between 600 to 900 nm wavelength.

Incandescent Light Is a Much Better Alternative

As you can see from the graph above, we can achieve a fairly good balance of therapeutic light from the use of incandescent bulbs.

While the concentration of therapeutic light isn’t necessarily large, it contains very little damaging light.

So, even in smaller concentrations the use of higher power incandescent light bulbs can be used to achieve some degree of these same therapeutic benefits as LLLT.

With that being said, there’s a problem that we’ve run into with the use of incandescent bulbs.

Governments are working to phase-out incandescent bulbs in an effort to promote other energy-efficient alternative bulbs. This is making incandescent bulbs more and more difficult to find.

While today they have been largely banned for use with general lighting, we can still get them in other forms such as “heat lamps”.

How to Build Your Light Therapy Lamp for Less Than $25

While Russian researchers recommend 2000 watts to 3000 watts of incandescent light, this is difficult to achieve with heat lamps.

For comparison purposes, the recommended lamp below uses a 250 watt bulb which would require on the order 8 to 12 bulbs to achieve the same power output.

However, the heat production would be rather extreme.

So, while a single lamp will provide some benefit, using two or three of them will provide more ans be extremely beneficial during the winter when we have the least exposure to light.

To build this light therapy lamp you need two parts, the incandescent bulb and the lamp reflector to house the bulb.

(Note for Those on 220 volt AC Power: This specific set up only works for the 120 volt AC electric service used in North America. It will not work with the 220 to 230 volt AC electricity used in most everywhere else in the world. But you can easily find replacements by finding a bulb and reflector lamp that uses 220 volt AC rated at the same power/wattage. Just go to your local hardware store and ask for a 250 watt incandescent bulb and reflector lamp. It’s that easy.)

It’s also worth noting that we use a 130 volt incandescent bulb, which when run at 120 volts is known to provide a higher concentration of therapeutic light and produce less heat.

Here are the parts you will need:

How to Use Your Light Therapy Lamp

The most important part of light therapy is to make sure the light is getting exposed directly to your skin.

The more skin exposure the better.

For general use, it’s recommended that you get plenty of exposure to both your neck (thyroid) and chest (thymus).

Or it can be used directly on other parts of the body such as arthritic joints to help relieve pain, or the scalp to help stimulate hair regrowth.

Place the lamp(s) 2 to 3 feet away.

Start slowly with 5 to 10 minutes per day and increase your exposure over time. Try building up to 30 to 60 minutes per session.

You can also use the lamp multiple times daily, and at different times of the day.

For example, some clients report improved sleep when using it before bed.

Are You Ready for Light Therapy?

Just like using thyroid hormone, light therapy can be a double edged sword.

This is something that I warn my clients about all the time.

Anytime you stimulate metabolism, it increases the rate at which your body uses nutrients.

If your diet is not adequate or you are deficient in certain vitamins then this can further deplete you and result in unwanted side effects.

For example, light therapy will increase the rate at which your cells consume sugar.

So ensuring that your blood sugar is adequate is extremely important.

If not, it can further lower your blood sugar, activating your stress response.

(Note: This is covered in more detail in this article on “How to Heal Your Thyroid By Healing Your Liver”.)

So, to be on the safe side don’t use light therapy on an empty stomach.

At a minimum, at least have a piece of fruit.

Or, if you want to get the most out of this light therapy, then use it together with our Ultimate Thyroid-Boosting Meal Plan.

    I’ve been looking locally for a far infrared sauna, the only one I can find is a cluster of lights hung over a cotton bed surrounded by a curtain. Ugh don’t really want to lay on other peoples and my own sweat! Why do you suggest the clear bulb instead of the red?

    You don’t mention that this light has to be installed by a professional electrician which adds up to much more than $20.00.

    It is NOT just a plug in lamp. It has to be wired in professionally according to the Amazon link you use.

    • Tom Brimeyer October 22, 2015 at 1:00 pm - Reply

      Ruth, it’s actually a corded lamp. You just plug it in. It does NOT require an electrician to be wired.

    I have a dual work lamp from Lowes that has two 500W halogens in it (1000W total ). What do you think of halogen as a light source? Already on a great stand. Definitely need to wear sunglasses under this thing. Thanks.

      If you take a look at the graph above in the article, it shows the light spectrum for halogen. It contains far less UV but still a lot of blue light. So, it’s not a great source for this purpose.

    • Nick December 21, 2015 at 7:24 pm - Reply

      A typical halogen worklight bulb is actually 3000k. I use worklights myself. They have a yellowish hue, so I don’t think there is much blue light at all.

      You should be able to find similar bulbs in 220/240 volt. You just can’t use the bulb recommended in the article because of the difference in voltage.

    I’m looking at the chart and am new at this. What color line in the chart is what the light bulb you suggest will give us?
    What is the wattage of the wavelengths you have along the bottom of your chart? I’m not following where the light you suggest falls in your chart.

    • Tom Brimeyer October 23, 2015 at 9:02 am - Reply

      The recommended bulb is 2700 K incandescent so it will be somewhere between the green (2500 K) and blue (300K) lines on the graph.

      The graph doesn’t show wattage. Wattage is not associated with wavelength. This bulb emits a spectrum of wavelengths, not a single one. The y-axis shows the percentage of light emitted at the specific wavelength noted by the x-axis.

      Hope this helps.

    I do most of my shopping through Amazon. Your link to Amazon was for a lamp that needed professional installation. Please send me a link for a corded lamp that meets your specifications.

    When looking for 220V lamps I can only find them with a wattage of 250 or 375. The one you use only has a wattage of 130. Is 250W okay, or is it too high?

      The recommended bulb is 250 watts… and 130 volts, so I think you got the two mixed up.

      Hi Jocelyn, It all depends on the type of bulb, light spectrum, and power. IR light is beneficial but ideally we want red to IR. I can’t speak for that specific lamp because it’s in Dutch.

    Is light therapy beneficial when you have no thyroid, only replacement hormones? (Armour 3 gr. currently)

    • Tom Brimeyer October 23, 2015 at 9:09 am - Reply

      Yes, very much so because it still activates cytochrome c oxidase which is an important respiratory enzyme that increases energy production.

    I am in New Zealand so our voltage here is totally different to US. What about a Bioptron Light, will this do the same thing. I already use this on people for problems with muscles, chronic headaches, healing of open wounds, and people who have burns etc and it works. As you may be aware it also has different colours for different problems, the blue colour is used for the throat so was thinking maybe this could work for ones thyroid. I don’t have thyroid problems but my husband does.

    • Tom Brimeyer October 25, 2015 at 7:56 am - Reply

      Blue light on the thyroid would have the opposite effect. In the article I talk about how blue light spectrum is bad for thyroid and metabolism and de-activates cytochrome c oxidase.

      Hi Eileen, they don’t provide any real specifications on their website so it’s difficult to say. Typically the lights designed specifically for skin are useful only for the skin. So, there’s still therapeutic benefit for the skin and activating cytochrome c oxidase, but the specific wavelengths used are typically not ideal for use directly on the thyroid gland.

    You should not shine the line directly on the eyes. Wearing sunscreen would nullify the effects as it would prevent the light from penetrating the skin.

      Hi Jocelyn, unfortunately it’s not something that I would recommend. According to the research link, their light peaks in the blue spectrum which will actually have the opposite effect of what we are trying to achieve. We are trying to avoid UV and blues and get mainly red to infrared.

    I have the same question as another above, you recommend to start with the light 2-3 feet above you and for 5-10 minutes a session. When would the distance of the light change and how often should we increase the exposure? Up to what max time? Thanks!

    Hi Tom, I am 62, and have been on Armour Thyroid, currently 90 mg daily for 30 + years. I still have almost all the symptoms of hypothyroid, and am tired of feeling cold, tired, constipated, depressed, insomnia, thin hair, dry skin. My mother is hypothyroid, and my sister had thyroid cancer, and had hers removed. I also have been a vegetarian for many years, with the exception of taking Armour Thyroid. I have moved more towards becoming a vegan, because I love animals, and do not want to contribute to their suffering or death for spiritual reasons. I am going to try the light therapy and the diet. Do you think there is hope for me to one day not need thyroid medication while still being able to be a vegan?

      As mentioned in the article, we’re not using this lamp to replace or lower thyroid meds. It’s not as effective as the lasers used in the studies, but it’s a very inexpensive way to help stimulate cytochrome c oxidase. The lasers cost tens of thousands of dollars.

    But I don’t know where I would clamp the lamp or onto what to use. But still I may try it.
    But I say the light enclosure on the Amazon site that looked like a picture frame and said for health and mood. I think it said 10,000 led clear light. I have bad memory problems. I’ll have to go back to see the company name. But was wondering if you would recommend this or it it is a hoax or gimmick, it is of course more expensive. 134.00. Through Amazon on sale I think???

      Hi Sophia, the 275 Watt incandescent would be best. However, make sure that the lamp/reflector is rated for at least 275 Watts.

    Hi Tom,

    Thank you for all this valuable information. Would the red heat lamp work just as well as the clear one if it does not give me a headache? Do you recommend the goggles one wears in tanning booths to protect the eyes?

    Would one of the products below work as well and if yes which one would be best? I believe they are led lights. There is one that is just red light and another that is red light plus infrared. Is it advantageous to get the one with infrared? Also, they have an amber one that works for spider veins which I would like to treat at the same time and was wondering if that would work for the thyroid as well or does it definitely have to be red light?

    Good morning, Tom! This is all new to me! I suffered YEARS of not being able to sleep thru the night. I identified with your explanation of the stress hormones being activated at night! I thought it was the stress from worrying about my Mom’s bad health, cuz that’s when this all started. Bought 3 different mattresses, hoping that would fix it. Then years latter, I begin having mental fog, memory lapses and I fear I have Alzheimers! So, go to my family MD, and he orders the blood test for thyroid and an MRI…bith were normal! So I research THYROID problems and see that I might be helped from simple Iodine! And it HAS helped. Now, I see I would benefit from the heat lamps. I am glad you have all these comments posted here fro people with your feed back! But I haven’t seen your reply to some (of which I am interested in hearing). The far infra red light therapy, the picture frame light at Amazon, and the Lightforce LED Therapy. I want the best light therapy! Thanx! Oh, I’ve been a licensed Massage Therapist since 1985 and like to be educated in all aspects of health therapies!

      Hi Imre, an incandescent bulb will work fine and would generally be recommended over the heat lamp, however they are phasing them out in the US due to energy efficiency laws and are extremely difficult to get. As long as you have a lamp/reflector that’s rated for 300W or better it should work out fine.

        its a bit pricier, but might be worth the investment – seems like a hardy choice which may produce less heat?

    Also, Tom, while I have your attention, I am eating eggshells as you approved. I wonder if soaking the eggshells in vinegar would help get the minerals out of the eggshells and into me in a slightly easier way. Right now I am eating them with my avocado pit antioxidant, psyllium hulls and iodone concoction.

      You don’t need to soak the eggshells in vinegar. They dissolve in your stomach acid, which can have a more therapeutic effect due to the release of carbon dioxide.

    hi
    the 250 watts lamps which are red coated, are they also good or we need only the clear incandescents?

      Hi Sult, the clear bulbs are what I recommend.

    So just sit 2-3 ft away from the light for 5-10 minutes a day? Sunglasses? Yes or no?

    thanks,
    Just got mine hooked up and received without incident from AMazon and I usually never am able to figuure out how to put things together! Thanks!

    How long will it take before I start to feel it “working”?
    Thanks,
    Pat
