Can red light therapy help with cancer?

  • by

The use of red light therapy, or photobiomodulation, is becoming more popular as a natural healing modality for a variety of health disorders. 

Can it cure cancer? 

Here’s what research has to say.

Research into the effects of red light therapy has found that it can be effective in killing cancer cells and reducing tumour size. In one study, researchers exposed cancerous tumours to near-infrared laser lights and were able to reduce the size of the tumours by over 50%. However, this particular study conducted by the National Cancer Institute did not test for long-term effects or the effectiveness of red light therapy on metastasized cancers.

More research is needed to determine if red light therapy can be used as a treatment for cancer, but it appears that it could be beneficial in slowing or stopping the growth of certain types of tumours. Additionally, red light therapy has no known side effects when used in conjunction with other therapies and treatments.

For those living with cancer, seeking out alternative treatments such as red light therapy may provide some additional benefits. It’s important to discuss any new therapies you plan on trying with your doctor first as they can advise if this is an appropriate course of action for your individual situation.

While more research is needed to prove its efficacy in cancer treatment, there are multiple potential benefits associated with using red light therapy in combination with conventional therapies. Some people have found success incorporating it into their own treatment plan and finding relief from symptoms associated with their disorder. It’s worth exploring further if you’re interested in trying out a new form of treatment for your condition.
