Photobiomodulation: The Role of Light in Preventing and Potentially Halting Alzheimer’s Disease

In Articles, Gamma Waves, Healing, Memory, Research, Video by Dr. Mercola

Alzheimer’s disease currently affects an estimated 5.4 million Americans. Projections suggest it will affect 1 in 4 Americans in the next 20 years, rivaling the current prevalence of obesity and diabetes and, by 2050, Alzheimer’s diagnoses are projected to triple.

Already, more than half a million Americans die from the disease each year, making it the third leading cause of death in the U.S., right behind heart disease and cancer. Worst of all, there are no effective drug treatments available. So what can you do to avoid becoming another statistic?

In this interview, Dr. Lew Lim shares his expertise in the use of near-infrared therapy to treat Alzheimer’s disease, and how you can use light therapy to radically reduce your risk.

“Let me first say that I speak with some evidence,” Lim says. “We have just been accepted for publishing into a scientific journal. Our recent case series report is a clinical study on a small number of people with Alzheimer’s disease. The findings actually are quite significant. We do get questions from skeptics like, ‘How can light actually reach the brain to begin with, and then get a response from the brain?’. What I’d like to do is try and demonstrate that first. Then you can see that this is not all hocus pocus. It’s actually doing something to the brain. Then we’ll talk about the evidence.”…
