OUR STORY

MitoGen was founded by Dr Josh Lamaro an Osteopath who also holds an Australasian Certification in Anti-Ageing Medicine. He has a special interest in the treatment of chronic conditions such as fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue syndrome, and auto-immune diseases using the modern and traditional principles.

As an owner of two clinical practices Dr Lamaro observed a concerning increase in the number of patients presenting with chronic diseases. Many patients were looking for an alternate solution as they could see no way out of using long-term medication that was becoming less effective and creating side effects. Functional medicine is a wholistic approach to health centered on treating the cause of the disease not just the symptoms. Dr Lamaro’s work centers around a wholistic approach of functional medicine with a focus on improving mitochondrial health, the energy batteries of our cells. Dr Lamaro discovered the benefits of red and infra-red light studying low level laser therapy and photobiomodulation courses and reviewing hundreds of peer reviewed medical papers. Dr Lamaro’s attributed part of his success in eradicating his patient’s chronic disease to employing red and infra-red light therapy.

He searched the global market for the best available product to put into his clinics and found all devices were extremely expensive and out of his budget. Knowing all the science behind the therapy and a part-time design engineer he decided to build his own. Using the highest quality LED and engineering is how the MitoGen Whole Body Light Pod was born.

Serendipitously Dr Lamaro met Jason who was also looking for an affordable red/infra-red pod to help with his metabolic syndrome. Josh and Jason found that they shared the same massive transformative purpose, that being to eradicate chronic disease and decided to join forces.

Jason has over 25 years diversified environmental health experience, holds two applied science degrees and published eleven peer-reviewed papers, including three in the prestigious Medical Journal of Australia. Jason has also founded six companies during his business career, including one of largest and most successful contaminated land consultancy companies in Australia (www.jbsg.com.au).

OUR DESIGN

Early in our research, we learned there are 4 key factors that should be considered when designing a light therapy device: treatment area, treatment time, convenience, durability, and efficiency.

Treatment Area

Most light therapy devices are incredibly small. You can only treat a small area of your body at any given time.  To solve this issue, we wanted a device that could treat a large surface area in one setting – ideally something that allows for full-body treatment.

Treatment Time

The sad reality is that most light therapy devices are significantly underpowered. In fact, most light therapy companies don’t even list the power output of their units. Instead, we wanted a device that would yield significant clinical results in just minutes per day.

Convenience

Even though we wanted a device that was large enough to treat your entire body, we didn’t want to concern ourselves with storage. No one wants to lug a big product out of the closet every day. At only 3″ thick, our device is designed to hang on any door. Very sleek and extremely convenient.

Durability

Built to last. That’s what everyone wants from their products – including us. So that’s why we developed our devices with the latest LED technology. Rated to last over 50,000 hours, you won’t ever have to swap out our LEDs. Why change bulbs when you don’t have to.

We Provide Light Therapy Technology Solutions for Human Health & Longevity
