Sunlight - Source of Life
The use of light therapy in medicine has a long history. The first light source used in photo medicine was natural sunlight. Even in ancient Egypt, sunlight was for medical treatments. Later, Hippocrates described the use of sunlight to cure various medical disorders. Although sunlight therapy has no scientific explanation at that time, the healing power of it was clear, and Roman and Arab physicians introduced light therapy into general medical use. Today it is known that the human organism transforms light into electro-chemical energy, which activates a chain of biochemical reactions within cells, stimulating metabolism and reinforcing the immune response of the entire human body.
