Utilize Aura PTL II Hand-held Laser Therapy to Treat Chronic Pain

Most of us, at some point or the other, suffer from chronic pain in our body that last for an indefinite period of time. Still, we continue to suffer in silence and do not pay attention to these ailments till the situation gets out of hand. With the advent of Low Level Laser Therapy (LLLT) combined with our bioenergetic supplements for pain and inflammation plus a good alkaline diet, pain can be resolved. Low Level Laser therapy, when applied to different body parts, carries frequencies to the body cells that communicate with the body. It targets the stress inducing substances and causes the release of natural chemicals that facilitates rehabilitation of the body system. Aura PTL II Therapy Laser System is a major technology in this field that works as a hand held portable system to help relieve pains and nerve related issues. It can address the pain from many issues including pain from rheumatoid arthritis, osteoarthritis, surgery and other injuries including all body parts. Additionally, it can also facilitate the acceleration of the healing of different kinds of wounds. Biolight Technologies is the manufacturer of the Aura PTL II handheld low level laser therapy. If you are a practitioner and want to include Aura PTL II Therapy Laser System in your clinic to treat patients, you can get in touch with us through our...
Bax 3000, Bax Aura, and how the PTL II came to be

Bax 3000, Bax Aura, and how the PTL II came to be

BioLight Technologies was previously known as BioVeda Technologies. We rebranded in 2013 in order to more accurately reflect the power of our low level laser technology in the corporate brand. Though our new name came into being in 2013, we have over 10 years of experience in the low level laser therapy field, and our equipment is the most precise and effective laser therapy system available today. Because of our dedication to research and quality, we continually evolve our products to take advantage of the latest research available. Because our product has gone through many levels of evolution, we are often asked: How did the PTL II come to be? The Bax 3000 product was the number one allergy treatment technology available at the time. Our success with the Bax 3000 was unprecedented, and the success of our current products such as the PTL II is built upon that legacy. The success of the Bax 3000 is such that thousands of Bax 3000 are still being used by practitioners around the world today. The second generation of our product was the Bax Aura. The Bax Aura added features while simplifying the operation of laser therapy in the office. The results of using the Bax Aura in the office continued to provide impressive relief for patients. Both the Bax 3000 and the Bax Aura had the capability to run “scans” on the body to determine what frequencies required therapy. However, this often wasted time as the body would fail to reveal true causative issues (i.e., the body would “cloak” problems). Practitioners, however, were still looking for a system that did...
Laser Pointers are not Therapy Lasers

Laser Pointers are not Therapy Lasers

If you look long enough on the web you will find almost anything. One popular article claims that all you need is a laser pointer to perform laser therapy. We think laser pointers are better suited for PowerPoint presentations and playing with cats. There is a big difference in the technology available in low level laser therapy systems and your average laser pointer. They may seem similar. After all, they’re both focusing light, aren’t they? The FDA controls all forms of lasers, from scanners at the grocery store to the laser pointer entertaining our feline friends to highly precise medical therapy laser systems. These lasers all have different functions, and if you’re going to be using low level laser therapy, it’s good to know the difference. Therapy Lasers True Low Level Laser Therapy (LLLT) requires a very specific type of laser. It must use a wavelength (color) of exactly 635-nm (nanometer). Then it must be powered at less than 5mW (less than 5 thousands of one watt). Then it must be a true laser which produces collimated coherent light. Coherent light is where all of the photons are in phase with each other. This is the form of light that the body communicates with itself. It is the only form of light that can be received and activate the internal light receptors (chromophores) of the body. Any deviation of this form of light will not activate the physiological light receptors located in the tissues of the body which is required for LLLT. The typical 635-nm laser diode that is utilized in a low level laser therapy system costs so...

Dr. Rosen: Sweeter Dreams Await & Good for You Grains

– by Dr. Michael Rosen, D.C.  BioVeda Health & Wellness Center of West Loop, IL Sweeter Dreams Await! It’s important to make an overall commitment to healthy, restorative sleep. Here are some tips from the Better Sleep Council for maintaining a healthy sleep cycle and ensuring the best night’s rest: Make sleep a priority by keeping a consistent sleep (bedtime) and wake schedule, including weekends Create a bedtime routine that is relaxing. Experts recommend reading a book, listening to soothing music or soaking in a hot bath. Transform your bedroom into a haven of comfort. Create a room that is dark, quiet, comfortable and cool for the best possible sleep. Evaluate your mattress and pillow to ensure proper comfort and support. If your mattress is five to seven years old, it may be time for a new one. In general, pillows should be replaced every year. Keep work materials, computers and televisions out of the bedroom; it should be used for sleep and sex only. Exercise regularly, but complete workouts at least two hours before bedtime. If you sleep with a partner, your mattress should allow each of you enough space to move easily. Couples who’ve been sleeping on a “double” (full size) may think they have enough room, until they learn that each person has only as much sleeping space as a baby’s crib! Avoid nicotine (e.g., cigarettes, tobacco products). Used close to bedtime, it can lead to poor sleep. Avoid caffeine and alcohol (e.g., coffee, tea, soft drinks, chocolate) close to bedtime. It can keep you awake. Finish eating at least two to three hours before bedtime....

Dr. Gibson: Can Your Job Be a Pain in the Neck?

– by Dr. Jean Gibson, D.C. BioVeda Health & Wellness Center of Fayetteville, AR Have you experienced neck pain after a long day at work? There are many cause of neck pain, but one of the most common causes is related to poor posture, muscle fatigue and stress while in front of your computer or while at your desk. Your head, which weighs approximately 10 pounds, is balanced on your cervical spine (the neck) and is controlled by muscles, tendons, and ligaments. It’s like balancing a bowling ball on a broom stick using dental floss and twine – if you don’t keep the bowling ball perfectly balanced on the stick, the ball will pull on the floss and twine, which will stretch and ultimately the ball will not stay in place! While your head will not fall off your neck, the damage done to the muscles, tendons, and ligaments by poor posture does require intervention. Many of us have our work stations set up for us by either our employer or the previous person in the office. We never think to personalize the placement of our computer keyboard, mouse, monitor and telephone to fit our body. Just a few changes in the set up of your office can make a big difference in your neck pain: Make sure your desk, chair, table and work station are at the right height for you. Position your computer at eye level or just below eye level. You do not want to be looking up at the screen or looking down at a sharp angle at the screen. Keep all paperwork as close...

Dr. Augustine: Holistic Dental Care

– by Dr. James Augustine, BioVeda Health & Wellness Center of Cerritos, CA Does Fluoride Really Fight Cavities? via articles.mercola.com So it’s up to you. Fluoride for you? Your dental health has everything to do with your full body health, therefore, there is way more that you can do to improve and protect your dental health than using fluoride. – Dr. Augustine Amalgam Fillings Update At the end of the two-day hearing to evaluate the safety of amalgam, the FDA’s own scientific panel – including neurologists, toxicologists, epidemiologists, and environmental health specialists – told the agency to stop amalgam use in children, pregnant women, and hypersensitive populations. After reviewing the available scientific studies and the presentations of researchers, experts, dentists, and injured consumers, the scientists concluded that – contrary to the claims of the FDA’s in-house dentist Susan Runner – amalgam is not safe for everybody. According to the panel, the FDA’s amalgam risk assessments were not adequate to protect hypersensitive adults, children, and unborn babies. Repeatedly, panel members expressed their concern about amalgam use in children. Pediatric neurologist Dr. Suresh Kotagal of the Mayo Clinic summed it up for the entire panel: “There is really no place for mercury in children.” Other panelists went on to explain that dental mercury is like lead. The panel urged the FDA to quickly contraindicate amalgam for these vulnerable populations and insisted that the FDA provide consumers with labeling containing clear...

Dr. Southard on Herniated and Bulging Discs

– by Dr. Fred Southard, BioVeda Health & Wellness Center of Hamilton, OH Often throughout my career I have been asked what is the difference between a herniated and a bulging disc. The way that I like to explain the difference is to compare the discs, or the cushions between the bones in your back, to jelly doughnuts (had one at the Y this morning after I finished my workout. One of the guys who comes in to the Y brought in some doughnuts to celebrate his return to health and I couldn’t resist replacing the calories I had just spent approximately an hour exercising off!). To get back to business, the annulus, or wall of the disc though much harder and much firmer, is like the dough of the doughnut. Inside the annulus, or wall of the disc, is a gel material, the nucleus of the disc, which, again, is much harder and much firmer than the jelly inside the disc. For numerous reasons, the wall of the disc develops a small tear and that tear grows and grows due to the strains associated with everyday life. Gradually, the nucleaus, the gel inside the disc, fills in the tear and such simple things as coughing or sneezing cause the tear to become bigger and thus more of the gel fills in the enlarged tear. Gradually, over a period of time, the tear works its way from the center to the outer edge of the wall of the disc and causes the outer wall of the disc to bulge, thus what is known as a bulging disc. Or, for comparison to the jelly doughnut, as long as the jelly in...

2014: The Year Alternative Therapies Go Mainstream! (We Hope)

We follow the health sections of mainstream media sources such as The New York Times, CNN and WebMD, and lately we’ve been seeing more and more stories related to Complementary Alternative Medicine.  It’s exciting to see this adoption of holistic remedies by conventional health practitioners and hope that it continues to become more commonplace as we enter 2014.  Here are a few of the latest articles: Acupuncture Goes Mainstream WebMD: Acupuncture, which has been practiced for millennia in China, is a small part of her own practice. But she makes frequent referrals to the clinic’s Center for Integrative Medicine. There, acupuncture, which uses needles to stimulate specific parts of the body, is increasingly popular for problems like chronic pain, allergies, and asthma. Five thousand patients underwent acupuncture at the facility in 2009, up from 3,600 in 2007. Light Therapy for Depression The New York Times: Antidepressants like Prozac and Paxil are widely used to treat depression, but a much less costly alternative called bright light therapy, in which a patient sits under an artificial light for a set period of time each day, is not. Light therapy is typically recommended for seasonal affective disorder, the “winter blues” brought on by shorter days and limited sun. Some psychiatrists prescribe it for this condition, often as a last resort when patients fail to respond to drugs. Green Tea May Help Prevent Alzheimer’s Disease WebMD: Regular consumption of green tea may offer protection against Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias and may also slow growth of cancer cells, new research indicates. Green tea, an ancient Chinese remedy, has been shown to have protective properties in undigested,...

Surgeon General Report: No Amount of Cigarette Smoking is Safe!

EXPOSURE TO TOBACCO SMOKE CAUSES IMMEDIATE DAMAGE, SAYS NEW SURGEON GENERAL’S REPORT Report focuses on how tobacco smoke causes disease Report focuses on how tobacco smoke causes disease Exposure to tobacco smoke – even occasional smoking or secondhand smoke – causes immediate damage to your body that can lead to serious illness or death, according to a report released today by U.S. Surgeon General Regina M. Benjamin. The comprehensive scientific report – Benjamin’s first Surgeon General’s report and the 30th tobacco-related Surgeon General’s report issued since 1964 – describes specific pathways by which tobacco smoke damages the human body and leads to disease and death. The report, How Tobacco Smoke Causes Disease: The Biology and Behavioral Basis for Smoking-Attributable Disease, finds that cellular damage and tissue inflammation from tobacco smoke are immediate, and that repeated exposure weakens the body’s ability to heal the damage. “The chemicals in tobacco smoke reach your lungs quickly every time you inhale causing damage immediately,” Benjamin said in releasing the report. “Inhaling even the smallest amount of tobacco smoke can also damage your DNA, which can lead to cancer.” “Over the last two years we have stepped up efforts to reduce tobacco use, including implementing legislation to regulate tobacco products, investing in local tobacco control efforts and expanding access to insurance coverage for tobacco cessation” said Secretary of Health and Human Services Kathleen Sebelius. “This will remain a key priority of this Administration.” The report also explains why it is so difficult to quit smoking. According to the research, cigarettes are designed for addiction. The design and contents of current tobacco products make them...
