Treating Diabetes with Light

Several years ago I was diagnosed with pre-diabetes condition during my regular check up in the Bay Area, California. It came to me as a surprise because I hadn't noticed anything different i.e. I had not felt any negative implication of this condition and I was doing quite a bit of walking on a regular basis. Doctors gave me advice and tips on changing my diet and my lifestyle. To be honest I found it very hard to deal with changes.

I was more surprised, even stunned when I went to my regular check up the following year and they told me that my health was back to normal. There I also learned that diabetes can't be reversed, so my doctors were scratching their heads too. I didn't change my diet much because I found it really hard to do, and the level and intensity of physical exercises was the same as before. Yet there was one thing that I introduced since I was diagnosed with a pre-diabetic condition and that was a regular use of an intranasal light therapy device. Since that time my diabetic condition has never been a issue for me.

By now we have accumulated a number of testimonials from diabetic patients of various stages i.e. prediabetics and diabetics who are on medications including type one diabetic patients. For some of them there is a need to adjust the use of medications so they don't get hypoglycemic.

I should not have been that surprised if I had faith in the collection of evidence even though they are not published in "gold standard" peer-reviewed journals. The sheer number of papers in itself should provide some credibility to the evidence.

This evidence that supports positive outcomes resulting from the use of intranasal light therapy devices for diabetic patients can now be viewed on the Mediclights website.

Achieving such good results with the application of intranasal light therapy for treating diabetes is due to the fact that this therapy:

  1. Restores systemic homeostasis i.e. balancing oxidant and antioxidant levels, blood sugar levels etc.
  2. Improves microcirculation hence a better blood supply to the extremities
  3. Regulates secretion of hormones
  4. .. and helps release nitric oxide

I would also theorize that the light - through the human nasal cavity - can also reach brain's hypothalamus in order to stimulate it thus restoring the balance of sugar levels. This is possible because this therapy has been found to have a positive effect on patients with dementia and other diseases of the brain.

So as a result the following conditions that are attributed to diabetes can be controlled:

  1. Peripheral neuropathy
  2. Retinopathy
  3. Cardiovascular diseases
  4. Fatigue
