    Most of the old newsletters posted here are the same ones Ray has on his website.

    The study he references https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3499892/pdf/i1062-6050-47-6-673.pdf

    Intervention(s): The red-light treatment participants received 30 minutes of irradiation from a red-light therapy instrument every night for 14 days. The placebo group did not receive light illumination.

    Conclusions:
    We have demonstrated that red-light illumination positively affected sleep quality and endurance performance variables in Chinese female basketball players. Based on previous studies,6,12,14,15,33 we can infer that red-light treatment contributes to increased melatonin secretion in the pineal gland and muscle regeneration. To our knowledge, we are the first to demonstrate the positive effects of red-light treatment on sleep and aerobic performance, which is an interesting link with practical application to sports training. Although more studies involving phototherapy, sleep, and exercise performance need to be performed, red-light treatment is a possible nonpharmacologic and noninvasive therapy to prevent sleep disorders after training.

    Oh my goodness. I just tried sleeping with 500W of incandescent light on me and I had possibly one of the best naps of my life.

    Red light also makes me insanely hungry. I spent $50 on food today.

    Thanks. @raypeatclips @meatbag

    Thanks for posting.

    660nm
    30 minutes
    30J/cm2
    Eyes covered.
    Clothed (competition swimsuit).

    Those with body lights can replicate this pretty close. Idk how my smaller 12W handheld device can compare but I'll be giving it a try.

    Does anyone get chronically sore eyes from using bright light? the only thing I have found to help is wearing sunglasses in my room which is annoying...

    Don’t use light in a way to have chronically sore eyes, throat or anything else.

    I'd love to get all the old newsletters and would pay for them all. Has anybody done this before?

    I've always thought those articles in Ray's website came from earlier newsletters. Is that the case?

    Does anyone know if this can be replicated with a Redlight Mini 670nm & if so the proximity it would need to be held?

    When you consider that the light from fire is mainly in the red spectrum and that fire has a relaxing almost hypnotic effect this would make a lot of sense. I haven't read the newsletter but am considering the subscription, sounds like it is full of useful info.
