Photobiomodulation, Energy and Cancer: A Quantum Notion

Michael J Gonzalez, Jose Olalde, Kenneth Cintron, Michael H. Weber

Photobiomodulation  therapy is defined as the utilization of non-ionizing electromagnetic energy to trigger photochemical changes within cellular structures that are receptive to photons.  At the cellular level, visible red and near infrared light (NIR) energy are absorbed by mitochondria, which perform the function of producing cellular energy (ATP). Continuous energy supply is a necessary condition for life. Electromagnetic energy has the capacity to carry large bundles of information that may control and coordinate all chemical reactions in the cells. Disturbances in oxidative metabolism and coherence are a central issue in cancer development. Cancer can be perceived as an entropic cellular survival state that lacks differentiation information. This increase in ATP production may provide the needed energy to achieve negative entropy. Negative entropy may reestablish the necessary order, organization and compartmentalization for cellular redifferentiation.  Photobiomodulation may help restore cellular homeostasis by inducing physiologically reparative activity for disease reversal in cancer and other degenerative diseases with minimal adverse side effects, and with potentially marked improvements in quality of life even in patients with advanced neoplasms
