RED LIGHT THERAPY FOR NEUROPATHY






I was fortunate enough to find some research about red light therapy for the pain and lumps of lymphedema. I bought the red light unit at Amazon.com for $40, the Pretika Lightsonic.

Imagine my surprise when I found that, in addition to helping the pain and swelling of lymphedema, that red light therapy also helps diabetic neuropathy. It takes away the pain and tingling in my toes, and stimulates circulation.

I use the red light for about 10 minutes on each set of toes, daily. My toes tingle after the treatment, and feel much better.

So, diabetic neuropathy can be helped a lot with red light therapy. And since the price is so reasonable, most people can afford it.

And, in using it for lymphedema, the lumps go away within 24 hours of treatment, so I treat my arm and breast area every other day. It takes me about 1 hour to go over all the swollen and lumpy parts. The light also kills pain within just a few minutes of use.

So, this is a universal help for those fighting neuropathy and/or lymphedema.

Thank you for the tip on Pretika Lightsonic, I already bought it and found it a great aid in reducing the neuropathy pain and also for edema (water retention) and improving blood circulation, actually a great product at a nice price.

Wow, I am so glad I stumbled upon this blog. I never heard about this red light therapy before. Any idea how long the lifespan of this red light unit is?

I have purchased 3 lights. I use two at a time. I had to purchase another light about 3 months after the first two because the switch failed and I was tired of plugging the batteries in each time I wanted to use it. All the other units are doing fine.

The only added expense is AA batteries. It uses two of them, and I use two lights. So, when the light runs down, time to replace them. Be sure to save your used batteries and return them to a recycling center.
