LifeWave X39 Pilot Demonstrates Light Triggered Changes

LifeWave X39 Pilot Demonstrates Light Triggered Changes

Abstract

Purpose – To determine if metabolic and physiological changes were produced by participants wearing the LifeWave non-transdermal X39 phototherapy patch.

Materials
– LifeWave X39 non-transdermal patches, Sabre Sciences urine and saliva test kits.
Amino Acid panel was performed using a TSQ Quantum Triple Quadrupole LC-MS/MS Mass

Spectrometer. Adrenal stress panel, cortisol and DHEAS, from saliva were performed using a Sciex


4000 Triple Quadrupole LC-MS/MS Mass Spectrometer and Dynex DSX 4-plate automated ELISA


processing system respectively. Physiology testing was done using a Thought Technology


Biograph Infinity Physiology Suite with Cardio Pro software. Blood pressure was taken with a Model


#BPAG1-20CVS monitor. Questionnaires included: Marlow-Crowne, Arizona Integrative Outcome


Scale for Vitality, Pittsburg Sleep Quality Index, McGill Pain Scale, WAIS III- memory subtest,
Profile of Mood States.
Method
– Fifteen subjects of convenience age 40-65 were recruited through flyers and email.

Subjects were consented and baseline measures were taken. Patches were worn 8-12 hours each


day placed at either the GV14 or CV6 acupuncture points as selected by a computerized algorithm


and selected for ease and clarity of patch placement for participants. All measures were taken at all


test points: Baseline/day1, day 2 and day 7. Participants were asked to apply patch one hour prior


to testing on day 2 and 7.

Cortisol levels were obtained from 8am, 12pm, 4pm, 8pm and 12am time collection saliva


Samples were purified with Phenomenex Strata polymeric reversed phase columns and analyzed


on Sciex 4000 Triple Quadrupole LC-MS/MS Mass Spectrometer using Phenomenex Kinetex C8


3x100mm, 2.6um, 100A column with linear gradient.


Dehydroepiandrosterone sulfate (DHEAS) levels were obtained at 8am, 8pm and 12am time


collections using Pantex salivary cortisol ELISA kit on Dynex DSX 4-plate automated ELISA


processing system.
Urine samples were taken by 10am at each test point. WAIS III data was taken immediately, at

10 minutes and at 20 minutes. A full 10 number sequence was used which was randomly generated


for each subject at each data point. Amino acid analysis was obtained on TSQ Quantum Triple


Quadrupole LC-MS/MS Mass Spectrometer using Phenomenex EzFaast amino acid kit.
Results
– Significant changes were seen in most essential and nonessential amino acids over the
period of one week. These changes include:
  1. Changes of inflammatory markers and their metabolites
  2. Improvement in sleep quality
  3. Reduction in blood pressure
  4. Improvement in short term memory
  5. Improvement in reported feelings of vitality
Conclusion
– While this is a small sample of convenience the positive results in this study suggest

that further investigation needs to be done. Both the effect that appears to produce a number of


significant amino acid changes in a short period of time and the improvement in short term memory


which are particularly relevant to an ageing population and should be explored.
