This lecture from Alexander Wunsch was presented at the 84th International Conference on Light and Vision of the College of Syntonic Optometry (CSO) in Indianapolis, IN, USA.
In photobiology, the definition of action spectra is a crucial step in understanding the underlying mechanisms. Once the action spectrum is found, it often serves as a guide for phototherapeutic interventions, aiming to match the wavelength as closely as possible. Lasers and LED light sources are on the rise and widely available. Monochromatic light is highly effective – but mother nature´s light sources are differently composed. The presentation discusses the value of diligently combined wavelengths even from opposite regions of the light spectrum for phototherapy, photoprevention and cosmetic use.
Remarks: Some of the topics have been addressed in other presentations provided on my vimeo account. Anyhow, repetitions can help to make things clearer. Or, in Latin words: repetitio est mater studiorum…

„Darkness is as essential to our biological welfare, to our internal clockwork, as light itself.“

„In the nature versus nurture debate, scientists often talk about genetics versus environmental factors in health. One environmental factor that has been getting a lot of attention lately is Vitamin D- and with good reason. Vitamin D is turning out to be a major influence in heart disease, cancer, diabetes and many other health problems. But Vitamin D is even MORE vital than was previously thought. New research is showing that even our Pre-Birth vitamin d levels are an important determinant of our future health.“

Pre-Birth Vitamin D Levels Determine Your Health for Life.

Vitamin D deficiency extremely common during pregnancy; most children born vitamin D deficient
