Fatigue and Autoimmunity and the Visum Light
It’s no secret that one of the most common symptoms in many autoimmune diseases is fatigue. From type 1 diabetes and irritable bowel disease to rheumatoid arthritis, psoriatic arthritis and more, fatigue is a common thread that makes managing your condition all the more difficult.
Recent studies involving Photobiomodulation Therapy (PBMT) are producing exciting results for a wide range of symptoms, providing patients suffering from all manner of autoimmune diseases with an effective adjunct or alternative treatment. What’s more, these benefits are achieved without the risks and side effects of standard immunosuppressant therapies, such as higher risk of infection, loss of appetite, nausea, vomiting, tremors and more.
Coupled with the facts that PBMT is non-invasive, more cost-effective, and can even be self-administered at home, it’s no wonder that light therapy is fast becoming a game-changer in autoimmune disease treatment.
PBMT & Inflammation
Autoimmune diseases like psoriasis, rheumatoid arthritis and others all have another major symptom in common — inflammation. And the constant pain and discomfort associated with this inflammation only adds to patient fatigue. One of the most established areas of study (Hamblin, 2017) regarding PBMT focuses on this ubiquitous symptom, providing a great deal of encouraging results for a number of conditions both near the skin and in deeper tissues and organs — from psoriasis and rheumatoid arthritis to alopecia areata, thyroiditis, multiple sclerosis and more.
Numerous light therapy patients have reported decreased pain and increased mobility in joints as a result of PBMT, often in as little as a few short sessions, vastly improving quality of life. Combined with the ability to apply this treatment in the comfort of the home, with virtually no side effects, adds another advantage that has helped make light therapy an increasingly popular treatment option.
PBMT & the Microbiome
The close relationship (Xu et al., 2019) between the immune system and the microbiome of the GI tract shows that maintaining a healthy microbiome can aid the body in avoiding autoimmune diseases. This strong connection also provides a fascinating line of inquiry regarding the possibility of mitigating autoimmune symptoms via repair and maintenance of the microbiota of the gut.
With the introduction of the term photobiomics (Liebert et al., 2019), a new area of study is focused specifically on how PBMT can affect the microbiome, with the latest studies on human subjects showing that light therapy indeed has a beneficial impact. This opens up a number of encouraging avenues of study for a variety of inflammatory bowel diseases, in addition to a host of other conditions related to the all-important gut microbiome.
How the Visum Light Can Help
PBMT’s ability to aid in the relief of fatigue and other symptoms brought about by autoimmune diseases is clear, yet there exists a plethora of device options for professionals and those who wish to self-administer in the comfort of their own homes.
The main distinction between these devices involves the lightning-fast evolution of the technology. Many handheld light therapy devices on the market today are obsolete, whether due to their design, capabilities, or battery life.
The Visum Light stands at the forefront of this technology, offering the latest capabilities and options in one convenient, ergonomic device. Yet what really makes it stand out is the fact that it was built to remain at the forefront. With manually controllable color combinations, Nogier Frequencies and time/intensity combinations, the Visum Light can adapt to the latest research to provide the most effective results — for years to come.
And with a 45-day No Worries Guarantee, professionals and consumers alike can try the Visum Light at no risk.
