Red Light and Rheumatoid Arthritis

According to the Cleveland Clinic 1 in 15 people have an auto immune disease.  There are several auto immune diseases, Crohn's, Psoriasis, Lupus, and RA.   I have a few clients with rheumatoid arthritis, (RA).  Just learned a few things from web MD.

-80% 0f Women with rheumatoid arthritis symptoms are improved during pregnancy.  


-Collagen is also produced during pregnancy.   “Pregnancy creates a higher demand for glycine due to the increased collagen and elastin synthesis taking place in the expanding uterus and stretching skin. As a result, glycine may become a limiting factor for protein synthesis in the developing fetus. Without enough available glycine, there is the possibility that fetal growth will be restricted, albeit to an unknown extent. “  Additional Collagen is also go for pregnant women.    https://www.womenandfamilynutrition.com/collagen-for-pregnancy

-Red light therapy improves collagen production.  “Red light therapy Stimulates collagen production, which gives skin its structure, strength and elasticity.”  https://my.clevelandclinic.org/health/articles/22114-red-light-therapy

Therefore I suggest that red light therapy would be good for my rheumatoid arthritis clients
