    Hi Suze

    Thank you.

    Photobiomodulation studies have shown that it improves neuronal function, promotes cell regeneration and reduces pain and inflammation. I was inspired by hearing a man, Robert, who after using his own home made device, lost his tremor, regained his sense of smell and lostsome anxiety.

    There are several devices that can be used for red light therapy.

    I have a commercially produced headset called Vielight. It does not come cheap but there ae other less expensive options.

    If you read up about photobiomodulation you can decide whether or not you want to pursue getting a device.

    PS It’s not something you use walking down the street, best done in the privacy of your own home.😆
