First Do No Harm Treat the Whole Person Identify and Treat the Cause Use the Healing Power of Nature Doctor as Teacher Prevention A discipline of medicine requiring a doctorate level education similar to degree programs in allopathic medicine, but with a different world-view that focuses on healing rather than suppression of symptoms. Unlicensed in North Carolina, which means we are free to practice Naturopathic Medicine, but not to diagnose or treat any condition.
Licensed in 15 States (and D.C. and P.R.) as Primary Care.

Light Energy and Biophysics of Light Therapy
Energy is Everything! Everything is energy! Conservation of energy: energy is not created or
destroyed, only transformed
Matter is condensed light: E = Mc2 Light turns from a wave to a particle when it strikes the
atom, energizing it
Avalon pulses its lights at resonant frequencies that the
body uses to communicate on a cellular level.
E = Mc2 Matter = Energy / Speed of light Matter = Condensed Light
Matter = Energy = Vibration = Communication
“All Matter Originates and Exists only by Virtue of Force which brings particle of the Atom to Vibration and Holds this Most Minute Solar Sistem of the Atom together. We must assume behind this that Force the Existence of a Conscious intelligent Mind. This Mind is the Matrix of All Mater!” -- Max Planck
Electromagnetic Radiation: Visible and Non-Visible
What we think an Atom looks like:
Effects of Electromagnetic Radiation on Electrons
Light Usages “Frequency” Continuous and Pulsed
Avalon pulses its lights using a solid-state device. Lights pulse at the rate of Nogier Frequencies, Solfeggio Frequencies, Shumann Frequencies, Zeropoint Frequencies.
Nogier -- seven octaves of the musical note “D” that
are proven to activate cellular communication
Solfeggio -- octaves of the harmonic sounds tuned to
Gregorian Chants. Found to be incredibly healing.
Schumann -- resonant frequencies of the Earth‟s bioelectric field. Floods our body with a coherent matrix.
Zero-Point -- aka “Quantum” frequencies that promote
healing and regeneration.
What is “Light Therapy?”
Medical/Veterinary Devices LED or Laser Diodes Hand held, portable or stationary Visible colors…blue, red, violet, green Invisible…UV, Infrared Can Shorten time to reach health goals Most researched: Infrared, red, blue
Who uses LED Light Therapy?
On every continent except for Antarctica, light therapy is being used on humans as well as animals. Just a sampling of who is using it:
Uses for Light Therapy
As well as…
The hole was three quarters of an inch in diameter and to the bone. The second picture was after using light therapy equipment for three days, three times a day for 5-10 minutes each. The third picture was taken one week later!
A Young Mans Ankle Heals in 1 Week
A clients finger was black as death. After picture is 4 days after using light therapy for 30 minutes daily.
A 54 year-old housepainter was suffering from chemical and environmental exposure. Used light therapy twice per day for 20 minutes each. This change occurred after 3 days!
This patient had a fall from a ladder causing severe trauma to his nose. Progressive treatments were made using two light pads, with two 30 minute treatments per day for 4 days. The last photo is 8 days after treatments stopped.
This patient had suffered a stroke and was wheelchair bound. When her doctor took off her socks, he was shocked. Her feet were purple, deep cyanotic purple! This lady was going to lose those toes for sure! After one treatment, those same feet are depicted in the next frame. Note the indentations from the LED's.
The Navy Seals found that LED Light therapy pads assisted them in getting back in the field 44% quicker.

Visible and near infrared light pass through human bone and tissue in small amounts, and the emerging light can be used to form images of the interior structure of the tissue and measure tissue blood flow and oxygen utilization.
How do we know Nitric Oxide is involved?
Simple, we measure it.
Human Plasma Response to Light
(dose dependent; more diodes = better response)
University of Colorado School of Medicine
Tests conducted by the manufacturer with a scanning Laser Doppler, which measures circulation at 1 to 2 millimeters (microcirculation). These tests demonstrate local circulation increases of 400% to 3200% after just one 20 min. session.

Overall, reversal of peripheral neuropathy in a clinician‟s office and subsequent use of light therapy at home was associated with a 78% reduction in falls, a 79% decrease in balancerelated fear of falling and a 72% increase in ADL (P< 0.0002 for all results)

In addition, evidence strongly suggests a reduction in blood flow in the prefrontal cortex for ADHD individuals. This region can be likened to a „braking‟ region in the brain, in which inhibitory judgment and control of behaviors is thought to occur.
Therefore, under activity in this critical brain region, either via deficiency in blood flow or chemical signaling agents and processes is thought to reduce the ability of the individual to inhibit unwanted responses and behaviors. As a result, impulsive behavior, which is a hallmark characteristic of ADHD is more likely to occur if this brain region is underactive.
Static charge clumps RBCs together. Low NO levels.
After treatment, RBCs flow smoothly. 64
