    I just want to know what bulbs to get. Can it be any bulb that produces red light or does it have to be a specific kind. if so what's the cheapest option. Any helps appreciated, thanks!

    I use an incandescent Bulbrite 250W heat lamp in a brooder clamp, 130v running out of a normal 120v socket, which increases the red frequencies & lowers the blue. It's not the color of the light itself that matters, you just want more of the lower spectrum frequencies and less of the higher.

    I have the ABI 12W red light lamp, you can find it on eBay and Amazon for pretty cheap. Works fine. There's also a 25W version if you want more power.

    I ordered a cheap 24 watt - led infrared/red light a couple months back. I have been using it all over my body and actually prefer it to the orange/red led light I purchased from lifegivingstore. Not that I don't like the product from LGS, rather infrared/red seems to be more energizing for me (and it doesn't ruin my erections when I use it on my testes). Thyroid feels it alot more too. Only using it 2 minutes per location (maybe less).

    on the above notes - I wear special eye glasses - is that really required?
    Seems like the lawsuits would pile up from the retailers. Thanks.
    Also, can you use too much light? get too close? Thanks all.

    I would recommend red lights for overall illumination and infrared for therapy

    I use a $5, 60W light bulb in a regular lamp.
    Am I doing anything for my body at all?

    Is it an incandescent bulb? $5 sound expensive. Usually LED are in that price range. Incandescent 60w should cost around $1.

    If it's a incandescent you won't get much penetrating light, but you won't be supressing natural sleep hormone production like most LED do.

    Thank you. Yes, LED.
    So you do think it is helping me?

    @Liubo The more red spectrum the more beneficial. I found these LED lightbulbs supress my sleep, even if it is sold as "warm white". You can see on this graph I found in another thread that LED has very little red.

    Incandescent is better! (unless it is PURE red LED)
