Low Level Laser Therapy (LLLT) is the application of a coherent cold laser light to treat certain conditions. It has been used to successfully treat many kinds of musculoskeletal injuries, because it promotes healing and tissue repair. LLLT has also been found to be an extremely successful treatment for alcohol & drug addiction, smoking cessation, and weight control.
HOW DOES LLLT WORK?
It works along the same principle as acupuncture but of course, no needles. The laser light easily penetrates through the layers of your skin to activate healing responses by your cells and to stimulate your nerve endings to produce endorphins. Endorphins such as serotonin are produced normally by your body and are nature’s natural mood lifter and help keep you from feeling anxious or moody.
The treatment of specific points on the body helps to reduce the desire to eat, providing a natural satiation without food. The laser helps to balance organ and glandular functions that regulate weight. LLLT quickly helps to activate the bodies innate cellular communication system and positive immune, enzyme and endorphin response.
A series of treatments is usually recommended after the initial consultation.
WHAT POINTS ON THE BODY ARE USED FOR WEIGHT CONTROL?
Applying the laser to various points on the body can facilitate weight loss by giving the person a feeling of well being, which can suppress the desire for excessive and inappropriate food. The laser can also stimulate metabolism and thereby enable the body to utilize food efficiently instead of storing it as fat. Each patient is custom-treated according to his or her specific and unique diagnosis. Usually a combination of body, hand, and ear acupuncture points are used that are believed to influence the organs and energetic pathways associated with weight management and hunger control.
Diet and exercise are helpful in any program of weight reduction. Most people who come for the laser treatment for weight control, however, have been given diets and exercise regimens before. They may have good knowledge of what they should and shouldn’t eat, but they feel depressed or irritable when they try to stay on a diet. The laser should relieve such problems and improve will power.
WHAT WEIGHT LOSS RESULTS CAN BE ACHIEVED USING LLLT?
The weight loss to be expected is about ten to fifteen pounds per month. Weight loss should continue after the treatments are completed until normal weight is achieved. The effects of the laser usually last at least 6 to 9 months following your last treatment.
A succession of three laser treatments over a three to six week period is recommended initially. You may require additional treatments, depending on desired weight loss goals. Sometimes a couple of treatments within the first weeks are necessary to get things started.
IS LLLT SAFE?
LLLT is a safe, painless and medication free treatment with virtually no negative side effects. It has been used in England, Canada and Europe for over 20 years with no documented adverse side effects. Laser therapy is a non-medical procedure and is respected by many physicians as a highly effective treatment. Several companies are currently participating in a study by the FDA to validate the effectiveness of LLLT. Countless patients are raving about their successful medication free treatment.
DOES LLLT HURT?
No. LLLT is completely painless. In fact, most people describe an extremely relaxed feeling after being treated. Weight loss is enhanced when LLLT is combined with a healthy diet and regular exercise. It has been found beneficial to drink at least 8 glasses of pure water per day to help flush out toxins, eat 6 small meals per day to help control blood sugar.
The glycemic index diet is worth looking at. For the best long term results avoid sugars, refinedfoods, sodas and saturated fats. Instead, eat plenty of fresh fruits, vegetables, whole grains, fish, lean poultry and use cold pressed flax oil and extra virgin olive oil.
