Red and Near-infrared Light Therapy
Photobiomodulation (red and near-infrared light therapy) is an exciting option for anyone suffering from either of these illnesses. Recent research has shown that if light of specific wavelengths and sufficient energy is used, there can indeed be improvements in both physical and mental symptoms. For Alzheimer’s, anxiety and cognitive function can improve. Care-givers say they notice their loved ones are more responsive and engaging, initiating a conversation and doing more for themselves.
Prevention and Treatment options
In addition to Red Light Therapy, there are a number of other things you can do for Alzheimer’s treatment and prevention. Dr Dale Bredesen has written “The End of Alzheimer’s Program” outlining practical suggestions, and has published studies showing these things help.
Minimal Cognitive Impairment (MCI), and mild or early-stage dementia will respond better than late-stage cases, but anyone can improve and this offers hope. In fact, it is easier to see changes in more advanced cases with those using the near infrared-light therapy.
We have developed a treatment plan using red and near infra-red light via a powerful helmet device on the head, as well as the nostril light (and likely gut light therapy too). Please ask us about this information if you are interested, however, please note that we do not provide this service in office, rather we advise you to purchase your own helmets for in-home use.
In addition, the “Bredesen protocol” and other helpful information will be offered for those looking for further ways to improve Alzheimers.
