Light Up Your Life: The Benefits of Red Light Therapy for Fertility and Conception

Red light therapy for fertility may be a game-changer for couples struggling with fertility. This non-invasive treatment can improve blood flow, increase cellular energy, and reduce inflammation, all of which may enhance reproductive function and increase the chances of conception. By using red light therapy to boost egg and sperm health, regulate menstrual cycles, and reduce pain and discomfort associated with fertility issues, couples can shine a light on their journey to parenthood.

Background

Infertility which is defined as the inability to conceive a child after 6-12 months of trying and subfertility, which is the reduced chances to become pregnant compared to similar aged couples. This is in both men and women and is sadly becoming more common in Europe, North America, and Asia. Approximately 10-15% of couples are struggling with infertility and subfertility, yet still desiring to become pregnant. It was once thought a “woman’s issue”, infertility effects men just as much with male infertility accounting for 50% of the reasons why couples struggle to conceive.

The fertility rates and live birth rates of many regions of the world have been declining in recent times. While socio-economic factors such as more women opting to delay childbearing until later in life, to pursue professional and career success which may play a role in this decline. Environmental changes have also had an impact. Many dietary staples in many parts of the world have been increasingly processed and made less healthy, the growing need for fast and convenience foods and the lack of home cooking, which could be linked to the hormonal changes in couples trying to conceive.

With male infertility there are factors such as the use of mobile phones and storage in pockets, tight boxers, cycling & hot baths all play a part. These unforeseen fertility consequences have been revealed in many ways, as such sperm counts in the average male decreasing by 50% over the past 40 years. This is half of what their ancestors produced back in the 1800s. Women, on the other hand, have been affected by polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS), endometriosis, diminished ovarian reserve (DOR) and premature ovarian failure rising in number.

For couples struggling to conceive, it is important to understand that there are options. Conventional methods such as IVF may be recommended, but understanding the possible causes of your struggles to conceive may help you to take proactive steps to improve fertility and increase your chances of conception.

One promising option is red light therapy for fertility, which can be used to improve blood flow, reduce inflammation, and enhance cellular energy, all of which can contribute to better reproductive health. By incorporating red light therapy into a comprehensive approach to fertility, couples can explore a safe, non-invasive, and potentially effective way to increase their chances of starting a family.

Statistics

The statistics on infertility are staggering. In Japan, one out of every six women (17%) is infertile, and the government is responding with subsidies for having children and coverage for assisted reproductive therapy (ART). In Europe, 10% of all live births come from women who have conceived through ART. In Hungary, they’ve made it a national priority to help increase the live birth rate and have even gone so far as to eliminate income taxes for women with more than four children.

Fertility levels decline with advancing age. This may be related to an age related decline on the concentration or function of mitochondria and energy (ATP) production in the egg cells.

Around the world, infertility rates and the need for ART is on the rise. Don’t feel discouraged — there are many options to explore, and you can find help and resources that can make your journey easier along the way. Red Light Therapy for fertility is one of many options available.

What can you do to help increase your chances of pregnancy?

 

Couples who are struggling to conceive can be feeling overwhelmed and stressed out. In-vitro fertilization (IVF), intra-uterine insemination (IUI), and medical treatments are all options for couples, but they can be expensive and not always covered by medical insurance plans. That’s why it’s important to be proactive during the fertility journey.

Taking steps like reducing or eliminating risk factors (like drinking and smoking) and adding helpful supplements to your diet can improve your chances of success and reduce the costs associated with treatments. Additionally, incorporating lifestyle changes like regular exercise can all help with sperm count, it can also help reduce stress and make the journey easier.

For men it is important to make sure you;

  • wear loose boxers
  • do not have hot baths
  • do not carry mobile phones in your pockets
  • have laptops or hot objects near your testicles. Heat kills sperm.
  • do not cycle

Supplements for women; Ubiquinol, NAC, Vitamin E, Lipoic Acid, Vitamin D, Prenatal Vitamin with methyl folate, Omega 3, Probiotic & Bone Broth can all help. Also anything high in anti-oxidants.

Supplements for men; Proceed Plus, Ubiquinol, Vitamin C, NAC, Vitamin E, Lipoic Acid, Vitamin D, Omega 3, L-Carnitine & Probiotic can all help. Also anything high in anti-oxidants.

When it comes to supplements please consult with your doctor or a medical professional first as you may have health conditions that prevent you from taking one or more of those supplements.

Introduction to Low Level Laser Therapy (LLLT)

 

Are you and your partner struggling to conceive? Are you looking for new ways to help with fertility? Low Level Laser Therapy, also known as LLLT or Photobiomodulation, may be something that you’re interested in exploring.

Several studies have been conducted to analyze the impact of this therapy on fertility outcomes, with targeted treatments being performed on specific areas of the body such as the testes for men, or the lower abdominal area for women. If you’re looking for alternative ways to help increase your chances of conceiving, LLLT may be worth considering.

Low level laser light therapy is a non-invasive treatment for improving fertility. It is considered a type of assisted reproductive therapy, but is much less invasive than conventional methods such as IUI or IVF.

Recent medical studies from Japan and Denmark have shown the potential benefits of Red Light Therapy for fertility, and the good news is that it can be used as a standalone treatment that can help people who are struggling to conceive on their owner it can be easily be implemented alongside existing treatment protocols and therapies without interfering with their success rates. Red Light Therapy is much cheaper than traditional treatments such as IUI and IVF. If you and your partner have been struggling to conceive, LLLT may be something to consider.

How the Red Light or Infrared Light Therapy (LLLT) works?

LED (light emitting diodes) Red Light Therapy for fertility works at a cellular level to potentially support fertility.

Let’s take a quick trip back to school and biology class – we all know that our cells are made up of mitochondria, which act as the ‘power station’ of the cell. Mitochondria is responsible for producing the energy unit ATP, which helps every cell in the body function. Without this, life stops. It’s important to understand that for highly metabolically active cells – like sperm and egg cells – ATP production is especially important. That’s why human cells have around 2000 mitochondria where human egg cells contain up to 600,000 mitochondria!

By targeting these cells with Red and Near Infrared Light Therapy, we can help to support ATP production and naturally boost fertility.

Red and near infrared light therapy is an exciting new way for couples who are struggling to conceive and have tried conventional methods such as IVF to potentially increase their chances. This type of therapy delivers specific wavelengths of light, between 600nm and 850nm, directly to the mitochondria, resulting in improved mitochondrial function and increased ATP production.

During and after treatment of Red and near Infrared light there is an increase of nitric oxide (NO). At the tissue level, nitric oxide is released during and after a session, leading to vasodilation and increased regional blood flow to the testes or ovaries – areas of particular interest for couples looking for successful conception. Furthermore, red and near infrared light therapy can also disinhibit the cytochrome C oxidase enzyme, allowing it to better utilize oxygen and produce ATP.

Red light therapy can help to balance hormones and improve fertility by stimulating the release of beneficial hormones. It also helps to increase circulation and improve blood flow to the reproductive organs. This helps to nourish and oxygenate the cells, which can help to improve the overall health of the reproductive system. Red light therapy can help to increase the body’s production of testosterone and progesterone, two important hormones for fertility, as well as stimulate the production of growth hormones, further aiding in fertility. Additionally, it can help to reduce inflammation and stress, which can help to improve fertility. Red light therapy is a non-invasive, safe, and effective treatment for couples struggling to conceive.

It’s important to understand that there are both localized and systemic benefits of Low-Level Laser Therapy (LLLT). LLLT increases production of Nitric Oxide (NO) which can help widen your coronary arteries and improve the flow of blood to your heart muscle. Additionally, when applied to the neck area, LLLT can help release beneficial hormones into the system, which can be used to help treat other medical conditions.

Light Therapy doesn’t only treat the target area, but it also benefits other areas, for example a light session administered on the hand can benefit the heart. Similarly, when used on the neck it can improve hormone production and brain function. When it comes to female fertility treatment of there are studies that show that treatment of the neck area has proven to improve fertility. Red Light Therapy removes cellular stress which enables the cells to function normal which is the same for the cells within the reproductive system.

Whether you are trying to conceive at home or receiving treatment at a Harley Street Fertility Clinic, give Red Light Therapy a go, it may just be the missing part to your journey into having a baby.

Summary of Fertility Benefits for LLLT

The energy production that takes place at the cellular level in both female and male reproduction. This is where mitochondria come in – these cellular structures use energy to produce ATP (Adenosine Triphosphate), which helps with the metabolic process of cell division, growth and development. Unfortunately, as eggs age, the mitochondria and ATP production may decline, which effects the egg quality, making it difficult for conception to take place. But with the assistance of red light therapy this can help with the production of ATP.

Red light therapy for fertility helps to increase the production of ATP (Adenosine Triphosphate) by facilitating the release of nitric oxide (NO), which helps to widen the coronary arteries and improve blood flow to the reproductive system. Increasing blood flow to the reproductive organs can help to improve fertility by providing nutrients and oxygen to the reproductive organs. In addition, increasing blood flow can help to improve hormone production, which is necessary for successful conception. This is why treatments such as red light therapy, which help to improve blood flow, can be beneficial to couples struggling to conceive. Additionally, improved blood flow can help to improve the health of the reproductive organs, creating a better environment for successful fertilizations.

Additionally, it helps to stimulate the cytochrome C oxidase enzyme, which helps to better utilize oxygen and produce more ATP in the cells. Near infrared light (830nm) has the deepest tissue penetration, meaning it can reach the ovaries and uterus in women, which can help to improve fertility. Red light therapy can also help to stimulate the release of beneficial hormones, aiding in reproductive health.

Red light therapy with a wavelength of 670nm can help to improve sperm function, motility, and count. It does this by improving blood flow to the testicles and increasing the production of ATP, the mitochondrial energy production in the Sertoli cells. This helps to improve the overall health of the reproductive system and create a better environment for sperm to develop. Additionally, it helps to increase antioxidant activity and helps to reduce the amount of free radicals, which can damage the sperm cells. By improving the sperm’s health and function, it can increase the chances of successful fertilisation.
