Bryan Gohl educates us on the whole-body benefits of Red Light Therapy  – a promising and scientifically validated technology that is quickly becoming a staple within the daily regimes of wellness enthusiasts. 

At its essence, Red Light Therapy looks to replicate some of the powerful human benefits of sun exposure, in a shorter more intense session that fits into our busy modern lifestyles. We are, after all, photosensitive beings that are regulated by the daily rhythm of sunlight. 

We instinctively know we feel mentally and physically when it’s sunny and we’re outside. Bryan, biohacker and founder of Red Light Rising, helps us understand the biological mechanisms for why this is, and how Red light Therapy leverages these same mechanisms. 

This episode explores Bryan’s personal wellness journey, including the profound impact his counter culture dietary choices have had on his health and wellness. He shares how he found Red Light Therapy, and what motivated him to start a company in this space. 

From there, we get into the science and evolutionary logic behind the mechanisms and benefits of sunlight, red light and infrared. We get into the details, whilst making it very practical in terms of how to integrate Red Light Therapy into your life. 

For those that want the most out of life, getting clued up on Red Light Therapy just makes sense. It’s the true expression of self-optimisation.
