Ageing naturally, managing the inevitable aches and pains that come with age, and avoiding expensive beauty products, can all be found with the effective use of Cold Laser (otherwise known as Low Level Laser Therapy or Photobiomodulation). Cold Laser Therapy has been approved by the FDA in the USA (and by NICE in the UK) for many conditions. Its effectiveness in treating more and more health conditions is becoming more widely embraced across the globe.
As the demand for sustainable and drug free health options increases, Low Level Laser is worth considering for an ageing population. Here’s why.
“LLLT is not an ablative or thermal mechanism, but rather a photochemical effect comparable to photosynthesis in plants whereby light is absorbed and exerts a chemical change” [Huang et al. University of Massachusets 2009].
When Low Level Laser is applied to the body, it creates a biological change without the need for pharmaceutical drugs. Furthermore, this biological change can be responsible for resolving a condition completely, rather than masking the root cause by treating only the symptoms. For example chronic knee pain from an injury in the past, can be treated with Cold Laser not only to manage pain but to increase deep healing within the joint so that normal function is resumed.
A major biological change precipitated from Cold Laser Therapy is the increased production of ATP (Adenosine triphosphate) at a cellular level within the body. Increasing mitochondrial respiration triggers a rapid healing mechanism within soft tissue, and arguably at an organic level (of the organs). This is how Cold Laser Therapy presents a drug-free option for optimum health. A further biological change is the increased production of collagen – great for chemical/drug free beauty. A third biological change is that of nociceptor signalling – in simple terms – the way the body experiences pain. Cold Laser Therapy reduces nociceptor activity, therefore reducing pain. Fact.
For an ageing population Low Level Laser Therapy offers a viable option for anyone who wishes to embrace the ageing process naturally, without the use for medication in many different scenarios. Cold Laser is sustainable, organic, without any side effects.
