After just 3 Valeda LDS treatments ” Oh, I have noticed that I can now see the red and the blue on the shower controls, when I first arrived here I could not see them.
After 5 treatments the client was discussing progress with another client who had flown in from the USA and commenced treatment at the same time and said “oh I have noticed a difference, today I could see the butter on my plate and I buttered my toast myself, whereas normally I cannot see the food on my plate”
I have used the Novo Thor whole body pod and I must say it works. I definitely feel more energized after each session. By the time I get home at the end of a long day I am able to do so much more. In fact I have also noticed an improvement in my sleep. I am pretty sure the red light is related to this. A. M.”
WHAT IS AMD ?
If you’ve found our website, you probably already know what AMD is, but here is some more information about the condition.
Age-related macular degeneration, or AMD, is an ocular disease characterized by cellular dysfunction in the macula resulting in significant visual impairment. Initially, the sharp, central vision is impacted but the progression of the disease can lead to complete blindness. While there are two forms of the disease, AMD starts with the dry form characterized by protein deposits called drusen that form on the retina (beneath the macula) causing degeneration of the cells over time.
The mechanism of photobiomodulation (PBM) at the cellular level has been ascribed to the activation of mitochondrial respiratory chain components resulting in stabilization of metabolic function and initiation of a signaling cascade, which promotes cellular proliferation and cytoprotection.
PBM works through the absorption of photons by photoacceptors in the targeted tissue. Once absorbed, secondary cellular effects include increases in energy production and changes in signaling modalities such as reactive oxygen species, nitric oxide and cellular calcium. Cellular changes occur through activation of transcription factors leading to modulation in protein synthesis, proliferation and ultimately improved cell survival.
PBM is currently used in physiotherapy, arthritis, wound repair and sports medicine and is increasingly being recognized as a therapy for the treatment of serious, life-threatening disease states.
Mitochondrial dysfunction and oxidative stress play a key role in age-related macular degeneration
Age-Related Macular Degeneration is a Leading Cause of Blindness in Adults Over 65.
Global AMD prevalence is expected to reach 196 million by 2020.
Approximately, 90% of patients with AMD have the dry form and 10% have the wet form.
