LED Therapy For Fertility

Light Emitting Diode Therapy (AKA LED Therapy or simply light therapy) is a non-abrasive, non-invasive, and restorative treatment that uses specific color wavelengths to stimulate circulation, the formation of new capillaries, and drive ATP production.

Theoretical Mechanism

How LED Therapy Improves Fertility

  • Endocrine System

    Light-emitting diodes directly over the eye can help restore balance to the endocrine system.

  • Nitric Oxide

    LED over soft tissue triggers nitric oxide increases which help in the formation of vascularization. Increased vascularization = increased blood blow = increased nutrient delivery = increased cellular health.

  • Collagen Formation

    Improved collagen proliferation.  There are studies that prove collagen is an essential nutrient for the ligaments that support your uterus.

  • ATP Production

    ATP is the major carrier of energy in all cells.  A lack of energy can be a contributing factor to recurring miscarriage and may be an underlying cause of chronic inflammation and immune disorders.

  • Edema Reduction

    Lymph vessel diameter and the flow of the lymph system can be doubled with the use of Light Therapy.  A sluggish lymphatic system can contribute to chronic inflammation,  immune disorders, which in turn can harm fertility.

Pre & Post IVF Transfer LED

How LED is Used with or As a Fertility Treatments

New capillaries can increase blood flow which assists in a more rapid and greater healing response. An IVF transfer can be considered an “invasive”  procedure and improved healing may help ensure implantation.

During LED Therapy, photons of light energy enter the body as negative ions. This requires the body to emit positive ions, like calcium among others, in the area being treated. These ions assist in firing nerves, thereby relieving pain and reducing the excitability of nervous tissue.  This may assist your fertility, especially after embryo transfer when you want a calm, assimilating environment for implantation.
