“If red light therapy could be put into a pill, it would be a billion-dollar blockbuster drug. Here’s the crazy part: That drug exists. But it’s not a pill. It’s red and near-infrared light.” In this episode, I pick my buddy Ari Whitten’s brain about red light therapy, and how it differs from other light-based medical technologies.
Discussed during this episode:
- Is there science backing up the efficacy of red light therapy?
- The difference between red light therapy, using tanning lamps or a tanning bed, blue light therapy, and other light-based technologies
- Can you overdo red light therapy? What is the right dosage?
- A few brands of red light therapy devices that Ari recommends checking out
- The many applications for red light therapy — from fat loss to muscle gains to anti-aging to thyroid function, and everything in-between…

Ari mentioned how beneficial sunlight is. Does red light therapy take the place of the need for sunlight? Also, Nick, I typed in your site´s name on securityheaders.com and it came back with an F grade. :(
Hi Kalit, red light therapy definitely does not replace the need for sunlight, especially considering the need for UV radiation which triggers your body’s production of vitamin D.
I was not aware of securityheaders.com — sent this to my tech team and we’ll work on it. Thanks!
Interesting interview. I wonder if you know the name/brand of the small red light he was showing for spot treatment? I read his book and bought the smallest one he recommends but he doesn’t mentioned the hand held type which is good for spot treatment. I see some on Amazon but they look different. I like red light and also PEMF.
I have a small PEMF machine from a Canadian company, Sota, great for pain. I was born in Montreal a long time ago and admire your work.
Hey Micheline, I don’t know about the handheld device, sorry. I do have Ari’s book and he doesn’t seem to mention it. He also features other products on his site, but no mention of a handheld one: https://www.theenergyblueprint.com/the-best-red-light-therapy-devices/
Thanks for the nice words. I’ve heard great things from SOTA products.
Can you tell me what red light would help with cold sores. I have a terrible case of cold sores all over my face.
Thank u for any help u can suggest.
Hey Sandra, the science suggests that any red light unit with a sufficient power density will do the trick. I recommend the Hooga for the most portable solution: https://hoogahealth.com/products/hooga-charge-red-light-therapy-device?rfsn=4596407.f6f7fb
I also like the Sauna Space Photon light (combination of infrared/heat/red light), and do use the EMR Tek Firewave on a regular basis.
Reason for not using the Firewave on a regular basis???
Hey Cory, not sure what your question is. Daily use of a red light therapy device may be okay, depending on the amount of Joules you’re getting. I suggest following guidelines in Ari’s book.
My brother is a self-experimenter and has found that with his whole body red light therapy panel, every other day seem to work best.
