Peripheral neuropathy is a condition characterized by damaged nerve endings, most commonly in the feet and lower legs. Generally, a patient’s symptoms are initially localized to the digits and plantar aspect of the foot but over time can spread proximally to the distal third of the leg.
Most cases are related to diabetes which impacts between 60 to 70 percent of all patients with diabetes. This is because elevated blood sugars eventually damage the small blood vessels that provide nutrients to the nerves. Since the blood vessels cannot provide adequate nutrients to nerves, nerve injuries do not properly heal and regenerate. There are dozens of other causes of neuropathy including trauma as well as the side effects of prescription drugs.
Red/Near Infra-Red Light Treatment
Medical treatment for years has centered on pain management medicine to cover up the symptoms while the condition progresses. A much more natural, effective, non-invasive approach is the cutting-edge Ultimate Light. This painless approach employs a powerful system that focuses on healing the damaged nerve endings, rather than covering up the symptoms with dangerous drugs which can cause terrible side effects.
How Does It Work?
The key discovery is that Red/Near Infra-Red Light actually stimulates the tissues of the body at the cellular level. The light energy penetrates the skin and is absorbed by the mitochondria of the cells. This energizes the mitochondria and accelerates healing of damaged nerves and surrounding tissues. It does this in part by increasing the oxygenation of injured tissue. In fact, regardless of what type of tissue that is involved, Red Light dramatically increases cellular function.
