The Wonders of NovoTHOR
By Causenta Wellness
Increase energy? Boost stamina? Recover faster? Yep!
At first glance, the NovoTHOR machine can be mistaken for a tanning bed, but this technology is really a healthy tool for wellness and regeneration.
The NovoTHOR emits red and near-infrared light therapy to increase stamina, boost energy, reduce inflammation, and help you feel better overall.
What is infrared light?
Infrared light represents a broad spectrum of light with wavelengths from 700 nanometers to 1 million nanometers (in other words 1,000 microns). At its shortest wavelengths (referred to as near-infrared), it merges with the red spectrum of visible light; it is near-infrared frequencies that are credited with the ability to activate anti-inflammatory processes in the body.
NovoTHOR treatment, which takes a little over 20 minutes, has been shown to help in recovery for both athletes and patients with cancer, and everyone in between. Members of the U.S. Special Forces utilize NovoTHOR after training sessions to maintain health and increase stamina for real-world missions. Olympic and professional athletes utilize this technology as part of their training regimen to remain top performers in their sport.
How does it work?
This improvement is realized in part because the light therapy decreases acute and chronic inflammation in the body. Red light therapy increases the blood flow to damaged tissues, and recent evidence shows it also increases the body’s antioxidant defenses. Inflammation in the body is usually a sign of some problem, such as an infection, wound, stress, toxins, lack of sleep, and/or poor nutrition.
There are common symptoms of inflammation, including heat, redness, swelling, pain, and loss of function in the body. The pain associated with inflammation is simply your body stimulating your nerve endings as a warning; it’s nature’s way of telling you something is wrong.
Red and near-infrared light therapy also increase energy production in the mitochondria of cells, which then boosts body function. Mitochondria is an organelle found in large numbers in most cells where the biochemical processes of respiration and energy production occur. When mitochondria get a boost, the entire body will begin to have more energy, and, because the light therapy begins an organic process, the body can sustain the positive effects on its own.
How does it help athletes?
For athletes, NovoTHOR can be used after a workout or training session to help regenerate muscles, increase stamina, and limit pain. It can also be used prior to working out; there is evidence that this can actually help the muscles recover more than when only used after a workout. This is related to the boost in mitochondrial production.
How does it help cancer patients?
In people undergoing chemotherapy, NovoTHOR can help limit the negative side effects and help patients feel more energetic. Inflammation caused by the chemotherapy drugs will decrease and so will the pain associated with inflammation. And, with more activity in healthy cells, cancer patients will feel better.
NovoTHOR’s light therapy can also be used as a treatment option for psoriasis, vitiligo, and neonatal jaundice. The body uses light for vitamin D synthesis, which helps regulate the body after the vitamin is metabolized by the liver and kidneys.
What should I expect?
During the treatment session, one of Causenta’s dedicated team members will program the machine based on your needs and set a three-minute timer. This gives you time to get undressed and lie comfortably on the bed before the light therapy begins. The top of the bed does not close fully, so even if you feel uncomfortable in small spaces, the NovoTHOR can be an effective treatment to help you feel better and increase your workout results.
At Causenta, we believe in measuring the effectiveness of our treatments and technology tools. Before and after strategies are employed, we evaluate each patient to determine if what we are doing is working. In the case of NovoTHOR, we can measure certain markers in the blood to be sure that inflammation is decreasing. We also interview patients to evaluate how they feel before and after; if pain and other unwanted symptoms are decreasing while stamina increases, we know this technology is doing its job.
The award-winning NovoTHOR is made in the U.S. and every component is tested at multiple stages.
A laboratory-grade spectrophotometer measures the light output through a 24-hour process to ensure that every light bed meets a high standard for continual light output. Its medical-grade technology has a low EM/RF interference so it will not negatively react with other medical equipment in a clinical setting.
Other options at Causenta
Another state-of-the-art technology that improves circulation and stamina offered at Causenta is the Hocatt. This device, appreciated by athletes, is a chamber that combines several gadgets into one, creating an effective and safe 30-minute treatment for a variety of uses and patient types. Heat, steam, and carbon dioxide are employed and together create carbonic acid, which helps regulate a normal pH in the blood. Click here to learn more.
As with all technology tools, Dr. Tom Incledon, Founder & CEO of Causenta, recommends using the NovoTHOR as part of a comprehensive wellness program. “I urge people to be aware of their health and environmental surroundings,” Incledon says. “Sometimes things you are ingesting or around can lead to inflammation and you don’t even realize it.” Incledon recommends eating a wide variety of fruits and vegetables; you can view the Rainbow Diet guide here.
Know your baseline
Incledon also suggests regular visits to the doctor to ensure there are no drastic changes in levels of certain compounds in the blood. “Big changes can be a sign of a larger health issue like the development of cancer, so you want to know what your baseline is,” says Incledon. “Being in the know and able to make changes or seek treatment in a timely manner can be the difference between living a long, healthy life or not.”
