This article seeks to revisit and highlight the growing relevance of the seemingly simple, but powerful, idea that repetitive low-energy forces of certain parameters can profoundly affect human physiology in light of last year’s Nobel Prize in Medicine or Physiology and other major advances. Based on the state of the art, we are convinced that light-water interactions in tissues by PBM will one day be able to selectively power and modulate PRs to help reestablish homeostasis–homeokinesis in higher biological systems. While not a panacea, this approach offers unique potential for multiple CDs. Challenges include developing and testing new treatment systems and documenting underlying mechanisms.
