A Presentation and Video By Mei-Ling Shek
Low-level visible or near infrared light has therapeutic uses. It can improve tissue repair, reduce pain and inflammation wherever the beam is applied. Called photo-biomodulation, it has been used for many years on sports injuries, arthritic joints, neuropathic pain syndromes, back and neck pain. Over 300 randomized clinical trials have been published, half of which are on pain.
First we shall watch an overview of photo-biomodulation and low level light therapy presented by James of Thor LLLT at the United Nations Global Health Impact Forum. Then he will give an introduction to the treatment for Age related Macular Degeneration (AMD).
Next will be a groundbreaking webinar on photo-biomodulation that aired during the World Summit of Integrative Medicine 2015. Dr Lew Lim and leading scientists from Harvard Medical School and Boston University School of Medicine, share their insights about the positive effects of low level light therapy (photo-biomodulation) on the body and brain at the cellular level.
Join us for this very interesting session!
