The gut-brain connection is gaining more traction as a path for diagnosis and intervention for a wide range fo neurodegenertive conditions. This article is discussing how it may effect the progression of parkinson's disease. We are working to understand how infrared light therapy can be used to help reduce PD by improving blood flow and reducing inflammation. THe new Neuradiant 1070 can be programmed to provide stimulation that improves cellular energy but can also help entrain specific brain frequencies that support improved motor functions.
Researchers are now able to report that the COVID 19 virus has the ability to cause small vessel damage to the brain tissue itself and not impair neuronal activity as was previously thought. The key point was made by the study author, Anna Cervantes, MD "Even though most of the coagulopathy is largely venous and probably microvascular, this does affect the brain through a myriad of ways". Our efforts to encourage the use of photobiomodulation are rooted in the knowledge that inflammatory processes include microvasular occlusion resulting in hypoperfusion. These are the fundamental hallmarks for all neurodegenerative disorders and why we advocate so strongly for taking prophylactic steps now to protect our brain with near infrared stimulation and functional medicine to reduce or hopefully remove neurotoxicity.
The combined approach of photobiomodulation and neurofeedback has proven to be of considerable benefit to many patients who needed to feel a sense of hope and control over their condition which is a key part of the integrative health model at QMF.
