Ocular light therapy is a method of therapeutically sending light through the eyes in order to stimulate brain function. Light through the eyes enables us to open up neurological pathways into specific brain structures, significantly affecting the brain and every cell of the body. Although we live on air, water, and food as nourishment, we are energy and light, and we are affected and nourished by light. Light is the second most important environmental input, after food, in controlling bodily functions. Studies have shown that application of light can affect the entire blood stream through circulation and elimination of toxins.
Research suggests that our nervous system, like our vascular system, may have two functions. It not only puts out and receives nerve impulses, but also may be a channel for the streaming of energy. Light ignites cellular metabolism. It enters the eye and goes to the body's power distribution center, the hypothalamus, where it is converted into electro-chemical impulses that are sent to important endocrine glands such as the pituitary and the pineal. These glands, in turn, distribute the hormonal messages via the body's nervous system to virtually every cell in the body.
