How Can PBM Successfully Treat So Many Different Conditions?
Photobiomodulation does one thing very well. It heals at the CELLULAR LEVEL by reducing Oxidative Stress.
All of these conditions have one thing in common, Oxidative Stress. Oxidative Stress (an imbalance between free radicals and antioxidants) causes inflammation in your cells. Although inflammation is a natural response to injury, chronic inflammation can cause pain, swelling, stiffness, and cell and tissue damage and is at the root of most health conditions. Time Magazine calls Inflammation “The Silent Killer" after medical studies linked chronic inflammation to many serious illnesses including Alzheimer's, Rheumatoid Arthritis, Diabetes, Cancer, Heart Disease and more.

PBM is a very powerful way to eliminate Oxidative Stress from damaged cells to reduce inflammation, increase circulation and accelerate the natural healing process.
