More research about the benefits of Light Therapy (a.k.a. photobiomodulation) for Alzheimer's! "Treatments with light provide additional benefits: less medication is needed than other drug treatments, and there are fewer side effects. When developed, photodynamic therapy will be used widely for this reason. Professor Park said, 'This work has significance as it was the first case to use light and photosensitizers to stop deposits of beta-amyloids. We plan to carry the research further by … [Read more...] about Using Light to Treat Alzheimer’s Disease
More research about the benefits of Light Therapy (a.k.a. photobiomodulation) for Alzheimer's! "Dr Dougal claims that only ten minutes under the hat a day is enough to have an effect. 'Currently all you can do with dementia is to slow down the rate of decay – this new process will not only stop that rate of decay but partially reverse it,' he said. Low level infra-red red is thought to stimulate the growth of cells of all types of tissue and encourage their repair. It is able to … [Read more...] about Infrared Helmet to Stave Off Alzheimer’s
More research about the benefits of Light Therapy (a.k.a. photobiomodulation) for Dementia! "In desperation, his family agreed to try a revolutionary new treatment - a bizarrelooking, experimental helmet devised by a British GP that bathes the brain in infra-red light twice a day. To their astonishment, Mr Fennel began to make an astonishing recovery in just three weeks. Dr Gordon Dougal, a GP from County Durham, treated dementia patient Clem Fennell with his infra-red device."My husband, … [Read more...] about Dementia Patient makes ‘amazing’ progress after using infra-red helmet.
More research about the benefits of Light Therapy (a.k.a. photobiomodulation) for Alzheimer's! "Despite these measures, there was no noticeable improvement in Taylor’s dementia and Dr Jeffery recommended she try another alternative treatment: red-light therapy. It has been known for some time that controlled exposure to red and near-infra-red light can improve wound healing and reduce inflammation through a process known as photobiomodulation — the term for light’s ability to affect key … [Read more...] about Alzheimer’s sufferers search for a ray of hope
When I first began hearing about the benefits of Light Therapy (Photobiomodulation – PBM) for brain health, I needed to see the science. As a Light Therapist, I knew Light Therapy had a ton of benefits for humans and animals alike. However, even I was skeptical about it helping people with brain disorders. Light going through the skull seemed a bit much. My skepticism was put to rest within a few years of becoming a Light Therapist. It turns out near infrared light (NIR) does penetrate … [Read more...] about Light Therapy for Traumatic Brain Injuries (TBI)
