The above setting can be used as a starting protocol for ANY "diagnosis" given for a brain imbalance. This application has been taught to me by 100's of clinicians and listening to the thousands of treatments perform and the shared results.
The standard 1 minute each lobe 3 times per week for 4 weeks is a good start and re-evaluate to determine protocol moving forward. If you have rental laser program in your office that is ideal. The patient can perform 1-3 times per day.
The setting of 40 Hz has been published a few times in PubMed showing benefits to those with a neurodegenerative brain condition. Practitioner preference.
Alzheimer's, Parkinson's, senior dementia (and others) are ALL chronic neuro-degenerative conditions. In most cases there are numerous, long term contributing factors, heavy metals, toxins, essential fatty acid, nutrient, and hormone depletion, poor mechanical afferentation (you were asymptomatic but could not do basic life movements well at age 30 or 40 years old; example. grip strength, feet, lunges, get off the floor) and it just went downhill from there, low grade infections and more.
Low Level Laser Therapy provides mitochondrial ATP benefit which is an injured common denominator no matter what the cause. But by the time you have the first symptom, of these three, 70% of the synapses are severely injured or gone.
Recent Publications using Light Therapy and a separate study using Photic Therapy (eyelights and sound acoustic sound therapy such as the Focus Unit I discuss in this manual) at the frequency of 40 Hz showed measurable improvements.
Lasers work point and shoot; however, lasers work better with activation. Dr. Jerome's Brain/Body FIT® provides exercise to the brain pathways while the patient is receiving passive (or additional "active" such as Dexterity Balls) laser therapy.
Alzheimer's and ALL neurodegenerative conditions lack neurological firing in the body. Use or lose it speeds up the disease. Vibration therapy using the VibePlate specifically for unattended "Active Unattended Laser Therapy" and to increase neural drive is fantastic!!!! The RPM can be set to mirror your laser settings from 10 - 60.
