Red Light Therapy

Good evening.  I received a PM 4 weeks ago.  Will be starting red light therapy next week and wondering if this can interfere with the PM.  Does anyone have any experience with this?

You can search the club for information but my position would be that 1) it won't hurt your PM and 2) it won't help you.  It's snake oil.

Red-light is just light and light won't hurt your pacemaker

The best I can understand what red light therapy is, it that fundamentally it is light. Yes, the same thing that's coming from your overhead kitchen fixture. And it's no more dangerous to your pacemaker.

You could also say it's like a rainbow. A rainbow is sunlight that has been split into it's component colors. Redlight therapy uses just the red part of the rainbow.  But redlight is always there even when we can't see it. The light from a prism isn't dangerous. 

The jury is out on how useful redlight is or isn't in all applications, but there is some evidence that it can be helpful in some areas. 

Please understand that pacemakers are extremely reliable and have been tested world wide so they can be used by anyone living anywhere. Worry about a problem so rare nobody's ever seen it doing something unknown and thereby causing an unspecified problem is a total waste of energy.

I had a pacemaker when I was 11. I never once thought I wasn't a 'normal kid' nor was I ever treated differently because of it. I could do everything all my friends were doing; I just happened to have a battery attached to my heart to help it work.
