Dr Gair will be sharing the exciting new studies that show how cold laser therapy can be beneficial for patients with Parkinson's in various stages of the disease. Cold laser, also known as "photobiomodulation", is beneficial by stimulating improved function of the mitochondria, stimulating neuronal stem cells, increased ATP production, increasing brain derived neurotrophic factor, dampening inflammation, promoting nitric oxide and glutathione production, modulating immune activity, and slowing the progression of the disease. The best thing about this therapy is that when the appropriate laser is used there are virtually zero side effects, and it can be part of a program of functional neurological rehabilitation under the care of a trained professional or can also be done at home by the patient on a regular basis. This therapy can also be used preventively in patients with a genetic predisposition for the disease as well.
The device, XLR8, uses two laser diodes and was developed by Erchonia, a leader in developing low level laser technology as treatment for various medicial conditions.There is a $1000 discount to the laser if, when ordering, you tell the agent your have been referred by Parkinsons Rrcovery.
