Sustained Energy with No Caffeine, Drugs or Stimulants
Before starting LifeWave in 2004, our Founder and CEO (David Schmidt) was already compelled to answer one persisting question: how can people sustain energy without using drugs, stimulants, or caffeine? The answer led to the development of Energy Enhancer, the first patch we ever developed and the foundation of our patented phototherapy technology.
Energy Enhancer Release Makes National News
Shortly after Energy Enhancer was released, David was introduced to renowned women’s swimming coach, Richard Quick, of Stanford University. Just three weeks after providing the patches to his team, six of its eight members broke their personal lifetime records. Stanford Team members were then spotted wearing the patches during the Olympic Swimming trials, propelling LifeWave into the national media spotlight. As a result, over 1000 people came forward to become LifeWave Distributors.
Since that time, Energy Enhancer has helped people around the globe go further, run faster, climb higher and embrace each day with renewed stamina and vigor. A safe more effective alternative to other energy products, Energy Enhancer will make you forget you ever hit that late-afternoon wall again.
What Is Phototherapy?
The science of phototherapy, which has been around for about 100 years, uses light to improve the health of the body. And modern forms of phototherapy such as Low Level Laser Therapy, which helps reduce wrinkles and treat other more serious skin conditions, are very well understood scientifically.
But this idea is nothing new. As far back as two thousand years ago, the ancient Greeks had a center for studying the effects of different colored lights on the body. Even the ancient Egyptians, who promoted health by focusing sunlight through colored glass on certain areas of the body, understood this concept.
How Our Phototherapy Patches Work
Your body emits heat in the form of infrared light. Our patches are designed to trap this infrared light when placed on the body, which causes them to reflect particular wavelengths of light. (see Usage Tab for placement instructions). This process stimulates specific points on the skin that signal the body to produce health benefits unique to each LifeWave patch.
What Makes one LifeWave Patch Different than Another?
Energy Enhancer patches reflect particular wavelengths of light, which stimulate specific points on the skin. This enables each patch to provide unique health benefits (e.g. pain relief, increased energy, etc.). No drugs or chemicals enter your body
How Does This Relate to Increasing Energy?
Energy Enhancer patches reflect particular wavelengths of light, which stimulate specific points on the skin that increase energy production in the cells (beta-oxidation). Because beta-oxidation produces more than twice the energy of carbohydrate burning, this is the most effective and natural way to increase overall energy.
Energy Enhancer Study Results
2006 Study (Revised in 2011)
This study confirms that Energy Enhancer has significant metabolic effects, which increase energy, stamina and performance. These results include a substantial improvement in maximum aerobic capacity.

Did You Know?
It should come as no surprise that 83 percent of adults drink coffee on a regular basis1 and the conventional thinking is that moderate caffeine consumption is not considered a health risk. But the most recognized coffee chains offer beverages in multiple sizes, and that’s where the line is often crossed. For example, some large coffee options contain as much as 436 milligrams of caffeine, which is more than you’ll find in a whopping 12 cans of soda.
Too much caffeine can cause irritability, heartburn and rapid heartbeat, just to name a few. And many popular energy drinks are far worse when it comes to ingredients. Not only do they contain high caffeine and sugar levels, but they’re also infused with excessive amounts of taurine, which can cause serious side effects when consumed in large quantities.
Alarmingly, the amount of people hospitalized because of energy drink consumption doubled between 2007 and 2011, from 10,068 to 20,783.2 By 2014, more than 10 percent of emergency room visits by people age 12 or older involving energy drinks resulted in hospitalization2
We can all use a little boost of energy in our daily lives, and these patches are a safe, effective alternative with no caffeine, drugs or stimulants.
