Low level light therapy

Postby cookin74 » Tue Feb 07, 2017 9:50 am

Wondering if anyone has tried light therapy to help with neuroinflammation? Certainly inflammation is an issue with cognitive decline. I've been seeing so much about these devices lately. Wondering if anyone has tried something like this: http://vielight.com/brain-photobiomodulation/

I don't know how closely the light therapy used to combat depression is to this unit. About 15 years ago I purchased one of the units to combat depression for a friend. The unit is still in use and the friend says it helped a lot. I know another person who has used one for many years with similar positive results.

It will be interesting to hear if any of our members have any personal experience using light therapy to fight inflamation.

I'm sitting under my "daylight" lamp now. I have no idea if it helps with inflammation though. Started using it in December. Interesting idea though.
Concerned, but hopeful. Introverted, but will talk about science.

I think I saw low level light therapy come up recently in the context of Dr. Terry Wahls work. Don't quote me but it would be interesting if she's using it.
