Laser is an acronym for Light Amplification by Stimulated Emission of Radiation. Light created in this way is then culminated and directed into an intense beam of coherent light through the use of cathode and anode reflecting components in order to produce a single frequency. Low Level Laser therapy is the use of low intensity photonic energy as a treatment modality. The results are at a cellular level, with the primary energetic reactions being, reduction of inflammation, cell regeneration and increased blood flow. This allows the low level laser to be used for multiple conditions from acute injuries and inflammation to neurological dysfunctions.
Erchonia's low level laser was the first to gain FDA clearance in January 2002. Since then, they have published clinical research and double blind studies with extraordinary results in pain management, inflammatory conditions, burn/wound healing, bone healing, and carpal tunnel. Further studies have been submitted to the FDA for review, and provide promising research in treating conditions such as Parkinson's disease and high LDL cholesterol levels.
Professor H. Klima from the Atomic Institute of the Austrian Universities in Vienna, Austria, has conducted various research studies that document the following biological effects of laser therapy:
With the laser, we are using very specific light energy for the exact frequency of firing of a healthy cell. When a healthy cell replicates, when the DNA replicates, for instance when I exercise my muscles the protein DNA replication in the muscle cells every 6-10 days. If we only workout one time there will be very little protein DNA replication as a result, there will be no increase bulk or strength. It takes approximately three weeks for an old muscle cell to be replaced by a new one. By using the laser, we are allowing tan older cell to replicate at a faster rate.
The skin regenerates one cell in about 28 days.
Liver, gall bladder, and organs in general take about 3-6 months for one cell to be replaced by a new cell.
Bone cells take about one year. The latest information is that every cell in your body replicates in about one year.
What we are dong with the laser is putting in a light frequency that is the same frequency as a healthy cell with the same frequency replicates, when the DNA replicates it is at a wavelength of 630-640nm. The Erchonia PL3000 laser emits a wavelength of exactly 635nm; it is very exacting. This does not waver more than 5nm in either direction--up or down. It never gets less than 630nm and never gets more than 640nm. This is why we are able to get such incredible results--because it is so precise.
Something very small, like a chronic condition, for example-- Oshira does tomography and finds that there are cold spots in the body where there is not enough blood supply, he comes back and administers laser therapy to the area to increase blood supply and affect the micro vasculation and increase the nerve potentiation and you can see changes in the tomography within an hour. Something that is too much activity like an inflammatory response, it is actually able to bring down and return to normal.
