    Has anyone compared the effects from the red or clear heat lamps? Rakesh suggests the clear type but the Red Light District tells me that it isn't the best choice for relaxation: exclusively red seems better for this. I also have the impression with it you can get closer to the lamp without discomfort. It's useful to have both around.

    We got teleported.

    While I was searching for the posts, I came accross this. You no longer agree with it?

    I know Janelle might comment below that I'm appearing to the nature, but it doesn't sound natural at all. Intense red light doesn't occur during the sunset, it's probably more a visual thing. Such session must signal the body that it's still daytime and it should be disruptive.

    What Raj warns against is melatonin supplementation, but mentions that the production is protective against his beloved serotonin, for example.

    I'm writing this as someone who has never tried it at night, so I can't tell from experience.

    @Amazoniac I can tell from experience that the clear (halogen or incandescent) feel more energizing than red.

    Thank you for letting me know. What about a relaxing effect? Have you tried them at night?

    Yes. I haven't noticed any energizing effect from the clear bulbs at night but I always have on blue blocking glasses.

    I really enjoy the clear incandescents, and never got much from the red or infrared red light man products. Maybe it is something to do with the heat, although I don't think it is. I get a much more positive response.

    Recently I started noticing headaches which were adversely affecting my concentration on schoolwork whenever I stared to close at my monitor. I also experienced severe pressure in my eyes. I heard Peat (on raypeatclips' youtube channel) that pure blue light causes ROS, but that redlight neutralizes this. Moreover I noticed that within a minute or two or of stepping away from my monitor and going outside my ocular pressure and headaches would drastically diminish. the effect was most pronounced when there was bright sunlight. I installed a redlight filter on my computer and also started sitting further away from my monitor and consequently my headaches have entirely disappeared and now I have much better cognition and concentration. just my experience

    I started to expand the view after noticing better effects from cycling between clear et red heat lamps.

    There were interesting stuff in his posts, but contrarian endocrimology is pretext to push through detox for years , almost dere

    - Is Vitamin D Supplementation Even Neccessary (Table 2 in the first publication)

    - Fluorescence Spectroscopy of Biological Tissues—A Review

    "The main biological molecules that absorb the light in the ultraviolet, visible, and near infrared spectral regions are listed in Table 2. Proteins, collagen, elastin, DNA/RNA and urocanic acid absorb in the ultraviolet region (wavelength shorter than 400 nm), while oxyhemoglobin, deoxyhemoglobin, melanin, and bilirubin absorb light in the visible region (400–700 nm). In the infrared region (wavelength longer than 700 nm), we can observe the deoxyhemoglobin band (760 nm), water bands (760 nm, 900 nm, 1250 nm, 1400 nm, etc.), and other vibrational absorption bands at higher wavelengths (not listed)."

    "The two types of hemoglobin are found in blood cells and the high absorption band observed near 400 nm gives blood its reddish color. Melanin is observed in the epidermis and is responsible for the skin color (7). Bilirubin and b-carotene can be found in all skin layers: stratum corneum, epidermis,and dermis; and the structural proteins, collagen and elastin, are found in soft tissues as well as in hard tissues such as dentin and bone."​

    The difference between them (or the part that's deemed problematic) is involved in the increased the tolerance. Such spectrum is also barred earlier, and with this we has to admit that the skin is playing an important rôle.
