Enhancing Brain Health with Light Therapy

Pictured: Vielight Neuro Alpha

Compelling evidence has shown that near infrared light benefits brain health, enhancing memory function and improves cognition in alzheimer’s patients. Photobiomodulation (PBM) is light therapy used to stimulate, heal and protect injured and degenerating brain tissue. Vielight Neuro is the world’s first transcranial-intranasal near infrared (NIR) photobiomodulation device. Light therapy has the ability to alter the chemistry of the brain in an innovative approach with tremendous benefits.

At the cellular level, visible red and near infrared light stimulates cells to generate more energy and undergo self-repair. This cell activity takes place within the mitochondria, which are the energy factories within every cell and are the key to PBM. Mitochondria have the ability to absorb this type of light and convert it into biological energy which leads to healing and tissue repair. This type of light can also free nitric oxide which can contribute to cellular dysfunction. This process improves nerve function and blood circulation by expanding the blood vessel walls enhancing mental acuity.

A recent study examined the impact of PBM on patients with dementia. Saltmarche et al. (2017) found that after 12 weeks of transcranial treatment with a Vielight Neuro cognitive function improved in patients with mild-to-moderately severe dementia. The patients showed improvements on the Mini-mental State Exam and the Alzheimer’s Disease Cognitive Assessment Scale. Caregivers, who kept daily journals of their experiences during the 12 week treatment period reported better sleep, fewer angry outbursts, decreased anxiety, and less wandering in their loved ones with dementia.

The difference between the two models Vielight offers is the pulse rate which focuses on either alpha or gamma brainwave entrainment. The Neuro Alpha pulses at 10 Hz and the Neuro Gamma pulses at 40 Hz. The Gamma’s pulse rate enhances memory function and cognition and is utilized for Alzheimer’s disease clinical trials and the Neuro Alpha’s pulse rate is ideal for general brain health.

These Vielight devices are at the forefront of brain photobiomodulation. Brain Builders Neurotherapy is excited to offer this cutting edge technology to help our patients experience it’s healing effects and enhance brain function. If this type of innovative brain therapy resonates with you, both of these devices are available through Dr. Roberts’ practice.

    When working with clients, we’ve encountered many cases in which they spent 2-3 hours every day on manual function to transfer data from various applications to Magento, POS and vice versa, or from POS to Magento. Noticeably, some situations have even happened for more than ten years. Moreover, lots of them only came to us to search for an omnichannel POS solution just a couple months before their current POS license expired. They often say something like”If only we understood”,”If we have understood it before”, or”We should have paid attention to it”. Yes, it’s all about”IF”. However, you can definitely do something about this. Jacquenette Chrisse Carrington
