The Red Light Report
The Uncharted Frontier of Women’s Biology & Physiology w/ Kayla Osterhoff

The Uncharted Frontier of Women’s Biology & Physiology w/ Kayla Osterhoff

June 30, 2022
I am excited because I get to return the favor to this week's guest on The Red Light Report. Years ago and well before BioLight became popular, Kayla Osterhoff, affectionately known as Biocurious Kayla, interviewed me about red light therapy on her podcast, BioCurious. So now I get to pick her brain about women's health, a topic where Kayla is a recognized authority on the subject, being that she is a women’s health science expert. The information that Kayla covers is absolutely fascinating and gave me a more well-rounded perspective of women's health. I can virtually guarantee that the females out there will gain some very valuable insight and strategies to thrive and live life to its fullest!

Kayla is formally trained across the health sciences with a bachelor of science in health ecology, master of science in public health, and currently pursuing her doctoral degree in the field of neuropsychophysiology.


Formerly, she served as a Health Scientist for the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and spent several years prior working in the clinical setting.The last several years of her career have been dedicated to researching women's neuropsychology.


Kayla's investigative efforts into the brains and minds of women led her to a major discovery about women's unique cognitive and leadership abilities. This discovery is the basis for the Her Biorhythm program and the foundation from which to build your new limitless life!

​Enjoy listening and learning from one of the top women's health experts in the industry 
 light up your health and enjoy!

Mitochondrial Fundamentals

Mitochondrial Fundamentals

June 23, 2022

Happy Summer to everyone! Summer means sun; sun means full-spectrum light; full-spectrum light means red and near-infrared light; red and NIR light means happy mitochondria! That was a long-winded way of saying that on this week's solosode of The Red Light Report, we will once again be reviewing the fundamentals of the mitochondria. This is quintessential to appreciating red light therapy, as red light therapy directly affects the mitochondria, which provides countless health, wellness and longevity benefits.

 

The first part of the episode covers why the mitochondria is vital for our health, wellness, and longevity. If you're into the science and how things work, Dr. Mike Belkowski discusses three of the most important names in the world of the mitochondria and water: Dr. Doug Wallace, Dr. Jack Kruse and Dr. Gerald Pollack. 
 
In the second half of the episode, I cover more fundamentals of the mitochondria, the electron transport chain, how they kill themselves off, and how to best optimize your mitochondria. 
 
Get outside in that summer sun and light up your health and enjoy!

June 16, 2022

It's a bittersweet moment on this week's episode of The Red Light Report, as we are finally concluding our adventure through the third edition of the Red Light Therapy Treatment Protocols eBook. As a quick reminder, this eBook is something I have developed over the past three-years plus based on everything I have read, heard, watched, listened to, etc. about red light therapy.

In the previous solosode, I covered the following three topics outlined in the eBook: skin health, sleep and thyroid health. For each health condition, I discuss how red light therapy can benefit that particular condition and then follow that up with what the photobiomodulation research has to say about that health condition.

In this solosode, I will be discussing the last several topics in the eBook: women's health, wound healing, safety and other considerations. Once again, there is a lot of fabulous information covered and will give you a well-rounded perspective on the healing potential of red light therapy.

​Light up your health and enjoy!
