David Schmidt has drawn upon years of business experience and a strong interest in health and wellness to come up with an innovative product: the patented phototherapy patch.
These patches can be placed on different places on the body and reflect different wavelengths of light back to the body to cause a variety of physical effects.
Depending on what condition you’re seeking help for, phototherapy patches can reduce pain, improve sleep, provide more energy, and generally make people feel much better all around – all without addictive drugs.
This product comes courtesy of LifeWave, a company David Schmidt founded in 2002. Phototherapy patches are currently in use in more than 75 countries, and the company is always eager to find ways to use them to improve other people’s lives.
For instance, in 2009, the company donated patches to the responders of a disastrous earthquake in Italy. The City of Rome appreciated this gift and presented him with a special commemorative coin thanking him for his support.
David Schmidt has spent the last 30 years as a successful inventor and investor. He holds over 100 issued patents and is always looking for ideas for new products that can help people’s lives, especially if they can tap into the body’s own natural energy.
LifeWave continues to look for ways to provide additional benefits with its phototherapy patches, including being able to help relieve more symptoms as well as reach more people easily.
The company has established an impressive distribution network and warehouse systems worldwide to make it easier for people to access the patches and other products.
David Schmidt continues to put a good deal of time and energy into research and development. Interestingly, some of his efforts require going back in time to study how other cultures used the sun as a source of healing.
This can go back to the Egyptians, who worshipped a sun god and built temples with different rooms that let the sunshine through colored gemstones, changing the tone and classification of each room. Patients were invited to visit the different rooms depending on their conditions or needs.
The Ancient Greeks created Heliopolis, a city of the sun. This city was known for its ability to help people and the people were considered able to cure all types of conditions.
Part of the appeal of Heliopolis was a temple inspired by Egypt: different rooms had different prisms that provided a different spectrum of light for visitors seeking different conditions.
The fact that these ancient cultures were experimenting with different light wavelengths – and their effects on the body — thousands of years ago has been inspiring to David Schmidt and his LifeWave efforts.
Today, most of us are familiar with different “colors” of light, even the ones we can’t see, but we may not know that they can have all different effects on our mental and physical health.
For instance, we use ultraviolet light, visible light, and infrared red light therapy in a variety of approaches, even tanning beds, which can not only provide cosmetic enhancements but can help with certain skin conditions.
Various versions of light therapy can be used in a variety of manners, including helping with seasonal depression. Infrared saunas are popular for relaxation as are high-intensity luminous devices.
Many doctors also are known to ‘prescribe’ that their patients get daily amounts of sunlight, which can not only help their general outlook but stimulate the body’s healing properties. If some exercise is included in here, such as a daily walk, even better for overall health and wellness.
While David Schmidt enjoys reading about the use of light for beneficial purposes in ancient cultures, he’s especially interested in more modern applications of phototherapy.
For instance, hospitals used to make a practice of keeping newborns with jaundice not only indoors but in darkness. This was believed to minimize the risk of sunlight to their seemingly delicate skins.
However, in the 1950s, a nurse took it upon herself to take some jaundiced babies outside, thinking that spending time under full sunlight could have a variety of benefits. She was correct and after comparing the recovery rates to babies that remained inside, there were definite advantages to this approach.
Today, while hospitals may not take babies outside as a matter of practice, they do use lamps with different spectrum of light to help with jaundice and other skin conditions.
David Schmidt has been fascinated by phototherapy for years, and it was this interest that eventually led to the development of LifeWave’s patches.
His academic background included studying Management Information Systems and Biology at Pace University. He then focused his attention on launching and growing businesses, including product development and manufacturing operations. He has also earned an Honorary Doctorate for his contributions to science and creative inventions.
One early endeavor was Advanced Applications Group, which provided energy-production technologies for commercial and military applications. It was here that David Schmidt was active in creating new methods for producing oxygen and hydrogen, creating unique combustion rocket engines and a multi-fueled bladeless-turbine power generation system.
His efforts also included designing emergency oxygen systems for General Dynamics which the U.S. Navy also wanted to know more about for consideration in designs for future mini-subs.
But then he began setting his sights on health and wellness products, especially tools that can stimulate energy and stamina without requiring pharmaceutical solutions.
More than 70 of his patents have something to do with regenerative science and technology, such as the Double Helix Conductor, which produces electromagnetic and non-electromagnetic fields to accelerate wound healing.
Creating LifeWave provided him with the opportunity to research how to increase energy and stamina naturally via fat burning and use wireless communication as a way for light to reach the body.
These efforts have also included detailed knowledge of how the body works. Patches can be placed in different parts of the body, depending on their purpose. Different wavelengths of light are reflected which can cause a variety of changes.
For instance, LifeWave’s patented X39 patches have been demonstrated to elevate a certain copper peptide known to activate stem cells. Stem cells can provide a wide range of natural benefits, including less minor pain and inflammation, better mental performance, and clearer skin.
