 Vitamin D deficiency affects 1 billion people worldwide¹. A review of the medical and scientific journals reveal that this pandemic may be correlated to many disease states plaguing the population².

MediSun Technology has engineered a breakthrough technology that increases vitamin D without the harmful effects of solar radiation. Clinical trials will begin soon at the University of Illinois, Champaign-Urbana.

The Mayo Clinic,3 the New England Journal of Medicine,4 Harvard Medical School,5 Massachusetts Institute of Technology6 and many other institutions agree that maintaining adequate levels of vitamin D — which actually is not a vitamin but a pre-steroidal hormone that is produced predominantly through skin exposure to UVB rays 7 — can save your life.8

Internationally recognized physicians, scientists, and institutions believe that Vitamin D derived from phototherapy is more effective than both controlled sun exposure as well as supplementation.

Leading medical experts recognize that Vitamin D strengthens our immune system and protects against disease9 Recent meta-analyses and comprehensive studies have shown increases in Vitamin D minimizing the risk of developing breast and colon cancers;10 11 12 reducing symptoms and risk of of neurological diseases such as Alzheimer and Parkinson’s;13 14 15 and improving overall strength and wellness.16

Despite vitamin D’s many proven benefits, vitamin D deficiency has become a world wide epidemic. According to recent statistics, over one billion people, one seventh of the population, are now suffering from vitamin D deficiency.17 It is now one of the most common medical conditions.18 In the U.S., it has been estimated that three out of four Americans are vitamin D-deficient.19

MediSun Technology has developed a breakthrough vitamin D phototherapy device that may help prevent and mitigate the risks and symptoms of neurological conditions including multiple sclerosis, Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s disease, autoimmune disorders, and cancer. There are also significant findings that show potential benefits for traumatic brain injury, concussion, and depression

MediSun Technology, in conjunction with medical device engineers and scientists have developed a revolutionary, state of the art vitamin D light therapy — MediSun — to naturally deliver the vitamin D your body needs, while avoiding the sun’s harmful rays.

Recently, clinical studies have shown that phototherapy for the treatment of vitamin D deficiency may be three times more effective than controlled sun exposure20 and eight times more effective than supplementation in increasing vitamin D.21 In fact, MIT research has shown that only vitamin D produced through the skin by light can have the transformative benefits that minimize the risk of disease, increase neurological function, and improve the immune system.22

PHOTOTHERAPY – NO INCREASED RISK

In a study examining the effects of phototherapy, there has been no significant increase in the risk of developing squamous cell carcinoma or basal cell carcinoma associated with long-term exposure to UVB over 25 years.38 Similarly, a 10 year follow up study of patients exposed to phototherapy showed no significant increase in the risk of skin cancer.39 Conversely, a recent large-scale study following nearly 30,000 women over 20 years, found that women who avoid UVB are at increased risk of skin melanomas and are twice as likely to die from any cause, including cancer.40

Sun Health Research Sun Health Research

Based on our groundbreaking MediSun technology, and in conjunction with Barry Jay Riskin, M.D. our Chief Medical Officer, MediSun Technology is:

  • Beginning clinical testing at the University of Illinois, Champaign-Urbana, regarding MediSun’s remarkable efficacy in the treatment of multiple sclerosis;
  • The university has also signed a letter of intent for studies involving post-traumatic stress disorder, concussion and traumatic brain injury – all highly relevant conditions that are currently being looked at in-depth by the military and athletic organizations such as the NFL and NCAA.
  • Continuing medical research and testing on the MediSun and its potential benefits to those with Multiple Sclerosis, Alzheimer disease and Parkinson disease;
  • Performing clinical trials regarding the effect of MediSun on the strength, performance and recovery times of amateur athletes.
