Breakthroughs in Boosting Neurological Health with Light
It’s Time for Light Therapy to Become Mainstream.
Benefits at a Glance
Transcranial PhotoBioModulation (tPBM) describes the innovative use of low level red or near-infrared light to benefit the brain. It has been shown to stimulate, heal, regenerate, and protect cells and neural tissues that have either been injured, are degenerating, or are at risk of dying.
Transcranial and Intranasal applications offer new hope for people affected by traumatic events (stroke, concussion, acute and chronic Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI), chemo-brain, and global ischemia). It may also help slow down degenerative diseases (dementia, Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s), and is a drug-free way to improve several psychological disorders (major depression, addiction, anxiety, insomnia/sleep disturbances, and PTSD).
tPBM has also been shown to provide enhancement of cognition among healthy normal adults. It can be used as part of an anti-aging strategy to elevate cerebral blood flow to boost brain oxygenation for better mood and memory and to improve sleep.
How tPBM Works
Specific wavelengths of light are absorbed by cytochrome-C which stimulates adenosine triphosphate (ATP) formation to “recharge” cellular mitochondria. This increases brain growth factors, blood flow, decreases inflammation and activates signaling pathways.
In the journal Photonics, Harvard’s Michael Hamblin, PhD. summarizes these processes of tPBM:
- Increases blood flow by releasing endothelial nitric oxide
- Increases ATP production near injured cells
- Increases Neuroprotection
- Decreases oxidative stress
- Reduces inflammation
- Attracts activated stem cells
- Increases lymphatic drainage
- Increases neurogenesis
- Increases synaptogenesis
- Stimulates gamma rhythms
- Improves cell membrane potential
Serving Your Patients
Dr. Narramore is reaching out to local physicians, rehabilitation providers and mental health professionals who would like to offer their patients a high quality, wearable, tPBM device for daily home use. This Class I pending device features high quality 12v LEDs powered by a medical grade, UL approved AC/DC adaptor.
The device is lightweight, custom fitted, and, unlike heavier and bulkier units, is comfortable to wear. Users can sit, read, talk, watch TV or just relax during use. It also connects to Dr. Narramore’s clean grounding and AC inlet devices for ultra-low EMF emissions. (Some tPBM devices advertised as “low EMF” actually produce unhealthy microwave and/or low frequency EMF radiations).
How a consultation works:
Step 1: Health Professional has a preliminary meeting or call with Dr. Narramore to get acquainted.
Step 2: Makes patient referral for tPBM therapy and Dr. Narramore.
Step 3: Custom fitted tPBM Device installed by Dr. Narramore at your patient’s house.
Comments from our tPBM users…
“Feel totally calm. Sadness and worry left during treatment. Nice!”
“Slept incredibly well after several nights of restless and poor sleep.”
“After treatment, I had an excellent night’s sleep again. Concentrated better today.”
“I seem to be less impulsive…to think more about consequences.”
“I feel my thoughts are more connected and less “roaming.”
Light as Therapy
Low level light therapy (LLLT) was first discovered in 1967 when Dr. Endre Mester who observed that low powered red light lasers could promote hair regrowth and wound healing in rats. Eventually, many kinds of studies were conducted on the use of LLLT and light emitting diodes (LEDs). In 2015, a global initiative was taken by researchers to standardize the term to ‘photobiomodulation’. [Factoid: Dr. Mester’s grandson, Mark, is an anchor on the KTLA 5 Weekend Morning News.]
Low EMF tPBM equipment offers excellent safety with very low known side-effects when used as directed. Dr. Narramore has received professional training and continuing education in the fields of Psychology and Building Biology but does not have a medical degree or give medical advice. If you are an end-user without a physician referral, Dr. Narramore can only discuss general, educational information. If you have personal medical questions, he can refer you to a colleague who is a licensed medical professional for consultation.

Photobiomodulation (PBM) is FDA-approved for temporary relief of muscle and joint pain, body sculpting, reduction of cellulite, hair loss, and most recently for treating fungal infection. Presently, the FDA does not yet indicate its use for other applications such as neuromodulation.
The evidence so far does not show harm for cancer patients being treated with tPBM therapy. However, if you are having active cancer treatment (Chemotherapy or Radiotherapy) or have cancer but are not in active treatment, always get your oncologist’s approval before you receive PBM or tPBM therapy.
