Intravenous laser in Lyme disease

Blue light radiation

Lowers the level of inflammation in the body.
Stimulates complex I of the mitochondrial respiratory chain, increasing cellular ATP production.
Stimulating the production of reactive oxygen species destroys microorganisms in the bloodstream. The action is primarily evident in bacteria where blue light radiation produces reactive oxygen species through its absorption by bacterial porphyrins.

In combination with riboflavin, has antibacterial, antiviral, and antiparasitic effects.
Stimulates microcirculation by increasing NO.
Can be used as photosensitizers for antimicrobial photodynamic therapy (for bacterial, viral, and parasitic diseases) in combination with riboflavin and curcumin.

Intravenous laser in Lyme disease

Red light radiation

Stimulates immune function.
Activates macrophages.
Stimulates cytokine and interferon production.

Stimulates microcirculation and increases tissue oxygenation.
Stimulates cytochrome c activity, increasing ATP production in cells.
