Nowadays, health practitioners and patients are more aware of the different side effects of pharmacological drugs. Some of these are ruptured tendons from antibiotics, immune system depression from steroids and antibiotics, and even sudden deaths from cardiovascular disorder drugs.
Fortunately, we now have a procedure that is safe, cost effective, and efficiently targets the problem at its root. This medical breakthrough is Intravenous Laser Therapy.
LASER (Light Amplification by Stimulated Emission of Radiation) has established its usefulness in the fields of Dermatology, Ophthalmology and Surgery worldwide. For more than four decades, Russia, Germany, and other Eurasian countries had conducted over 2,500 studies using Intravenous Laser Therapy to address a variety of disorders involving different organ-systems and even averting major operations in the process. Said studies were spearheaded by Russians in Germany who relentlessly developed, improved, and eventually optimized the technology. Fortunately for us Filipinos, one of our
“kababayans” was generous enough to bring this technology and the particular apparatuses that deliver the effects that will be discussed later (as different types of laser apparatus produce different effects) and share it with those who badly need it at very minimal cost.
Intravenous Laser Therapy (IVLT) is also known as Blood acupuncture. During the procedure, laser light of different wavelengths and of low wattage (1-3mW) flow intravenously via a sterile fiber optic needle or cannula. Once light energy is introduced, it is carried by blood to the different parts of the body and converted into chemical energy which affects the cell membranes as well as the different intracellular organelles. Needless to say, when the cellular activity and state is optimum, so will be the organ-systems for everything starts at the cellular level. This is a minimally invasive procedure which involves no downtime at all.
IVLT has the following mechanisms of action and benefits:
1. Cardiovascular System- One of the effects of IVLT on the cell membrane is decreasing its ability to adhere to or stick with other cells thus preventing aggregation. When the cells are aggregated, this contributes to the formation of blood stasis, hypertension, and other more serious cardiovascular disorders; moreover, as the blood cells aggregate, the surface area that delivers the much needed oxygen and nutrients is decreased; hence, compromising not only the circulation but the oxygenation and nutrition of the organs which the blood supplies as well.
Studies also show that the procedure is capable of reducing high cholesterol levels in the blood; hence, the use of Statin drugs and other cholesterol lowering drugs which are not without serious side effects can be minimized if not totally avoided.
2. Immune Sytem- Both the specific (antibodies) and general (white blood cells, immunomodulators, etc.) wings of the immune system are enhanced qualitatively and quantitatively; hence, the optimal functioning of the immune system against infections and stress.
3. Nervous System- Cases of depression, other mood disorders, and even Schizophrenia were reported to improve with this modality. This is attributed to the normalization of neutransmitter levels as well as the conduction and transmission of nerve impulses/stimuli which are needed to eventually achieve homeostasis or balance of the system.
4. Pain, Inflammation, and Wound Healing- Studies conducted show marked decrease in inflammation parameters, improved microcirculation, and activated DNA repair system as well as increased activation and mobilization of stem cells to sites of trauma which all contributed to a decrease in inflammation
and pain and faster wound healing.
Its effect on one of the organelles of the cell, the mitochondria (cell’s powerhouse), is an increase in the production and storage of ATP (Adenosine Triphosphate) which is considered to be the currency of energy in our body. The availability of said energy coupled with improved microcirculation enable healing of damaged tissues faster apart from increasing one’s vitality.
5. And more… as a result of the normalization of metabolism and different substances like hormones, enzymes, etc., IVLT has been documented to address problems of digestion, infertility, obesity, diabetes, and many other disorders. Numerous studies are still uncovering its various potentials in the field of medicine.
Stem Cell Activation.
Stem cells are like medical doctors who have not decided yet what field of specialization to take and where to practice it. Ideally, these doctors would go to the barrios/provinces where they are badly needed, and then the country would have less of its citizenry suffering serious health problems. The country will be healthy. In the body, the actual stem cells are cells that have not decided yet whether to become specialized liver cells, lung cells, etc., they are usually found in sites like bone marrow, fat cells, and other tissues. When there is trauma, they are mobilized from these sites to the areas of injury. Once they reach the site of damage they blend and heal the area, just like the doctors, and finally become one of them. Earlier, it was hypothesized and later demonstrated that one of the mechanisms of action of laser therapy is connected with activation and better mobilization of stem cells to the site of injury.
With the decrease in Free Radicals (known to be one of the causes of Aging), increase in ATP, improved microcirculation as well as acivation and mobilization of stem cells resulting from the IV Laser Therapy, it is no wonder why the practitioners view this modality as having a rejuvenating and anti aging effect; Likewise, patients claim that they felt younger and more energetic even if their treatment package was not over yet. Their friends and relatives on the other hand, noticed the external manifestation of such rejuvenating effect by their youthful glow.
This unique IV laser therapy has succeeded where Conventional Medical measures had failed in helping patients address their health concerns at its root cause and in maintaining one’s health at its optimum level.
After thorough history taking, physical examination, and initial diagnostic procedures to achieve some baseline data needed for comparison and to rule out possible existing contraindications to the the therapy; the patient is then asked to either lie or sit down for the IV insertion of a sterile fiber optic needle.
The procedure takes between 30 to 50 minutes depending on the case. Wearing of anti-laser goggles is not required as they do not harm the eyes compared to the other types of laser. The treatment is usually done daily or every other day for about 10 sessions. Maintenance sessions again depends on the patient’s case.
Patient is warned of the most common side effect which is the feeling of too much calmness as the body systems are trying to recuperate initially. No serious side effects has been noted for as long as the right procedures are observed.
