Cellular Mechanisms of Intravenous Laser Therapy

Elucidating the mechanisms of laser blood irradiation (LBI) is required for this treatment to become accepted among medical professionals. This lecture will explore some of the known mechanisms of LBI, concentrating on the effects upon red blood cells, white blood cells, platelets and stem cells.

Latest Therapeutic and Diagnostic Protocols to Manage Oxidative Stress Related Diseases with Low-Level-Lasers, Platelet-Rich-Plasma and Stem Cells

Nitromedicine is a new medical speciality that focuses on developing diagnostic and therapeutic protocols to manage oxidative stress related diseases by modulations of Nitroredox sensitive epigenetics and biochemical pathways. To develop effective therapeutic approaches against Oxidative stress related diseases , it is important to identify the mechanisms underlying the initial pathological events. targeted antioxidant treatments could be a promising therapeutic...

Functional Medicine View Of Chronic Infammation, Headache and Pain (Tales From A Recovering Allopath)

From the viewpoint of a Recovering Allopath, utilizing a case presentation, Functional Medicine root causes are discussed that reflect an interconnected web of conventionally unrecognized dysfunctions. How these dysfunctions can produce inflammation, oxidative stress, immune dysfunction, autoimmune reactivity and chronic disease and generate downstream effects that seem disconnected (e.g., Hypothalamic-Pituitary dysregulation, exocrine pancreatic insufficiency, small intestinal bacterial overgrowth, stealth infections,...

Laser Assistance in Pain Management

Pain, Mindset, and Spirituality This talk will look at the role of Mindset and Spirituality on pain perception. We will look at where these two concepts impact brain function. This would include concepts of depression, anxiety, catastrophizing, and suicidal risks. Included will be a recent Medline review of this topic with mention of published results. Also, we will focus on...

An Integrative Approach to Parkinson’s Disease Treatment

Parkinson’s disease now is the 14th leading cause of death in the U.S., with 1.5 million Americans currently suffering from the disease. Although significant scientific advances such as deep brain stimulation and medications help ease motor and non-motor symptoms, but at this time there is no cure. This program integrates several contemporary but scientifically founded therapies to help slow and...

Laser, PRP and Stem Cells for Pain Management and Regenerative Therapy – Part 1

Laser Therapy in combination with injection therapies such as Platelet-Rich Plasma or stem cells is a new and very powerful tool in regenerative medicine. Platelets contain a high amount of tissue-regenerating growth factors and cytokines. They stimulate cell reproduction, angiogenesis and the formation of connective tissue. The PRP injection can be combined very successfully with laser therapy, taking advantage of...

How Low Level Laser Treatment Has Provided Game Changing Improvements in our Orthopaedic Medicine Outcomes: Data from our Prospective Studies

In our practice Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) injections effectively reduce pain in most but not all arthritic patients. However, for patients who fail PRP treatment, no good alternative currently exists except total joint replacement surgery. For our study we hypothesized that intra-articular laser treatment would be an effective augmentation to PRP injection and would increase its efficacy in patients who...

Eating Sunlight – the Essential Nutrition for the Health and Enlightenment

When we sit down to eat a meal, we humans consume the three major food groups, proteins, carbohydrates and lipids, along with macronutrients and some environmental toxins. All health depends upon the energy factory of our body – the mitochondria – and these creatures do NOT consume food. Rather, we are nourished at the mitochondrial level by the truly essential...

Laser Therapy in Veterinary Medicine – PBMT for Two Very Common Small Animal Diseases

Chronic Renal Failure is the leading cause of death in felines and the second leading cause of death in canines. The use of PBMT as part of a multimodal treatment plan for these patients is a significant contributor to improved outcomes. Results from an ongoing pilot study will be presented as well as a discussion of proposed mechanisms and the...

Dynamic Clinical Outcomes With Integration of PDT – Case Reports From Port Moody Health Centre for Integrative Medicine and Cancer Care

In this lecture, Dr. Gurm will present case experiences and outcomes with PDT as part of a multi-modal integrative approach for metastatic pancreatic adenocarcinoma, localized prostate adenocarcinoma, localized anal carcinoma and a case of Lyme disease. Other therapies that will be described in this lecture include DCA, pharmacologic ascorbate, local-regional hyperthermia and EGCG. Dr. Gurm will briefly describe the scientific and therapeutic rationale for...

High Potency Intravenous Blood Irradiation and the Treatment of Lyme Disease

Dr. Rade will present on the clinical results he has observed using high-potency intravenous blood irradiation in patients with complex chronic illness, the majority of whom present with persistent Borelliosis or coinfections. Indeed, he has observed that utilizing a 40-100mW output power versus the common output power recommendation of 5mW appears to exert a markedly stronger clinical effect for patients...

Latest Developments in Photodynamic Cancer Therapy – Indocyanine Green in Nanoparticles for Highly Effective Cancer Targeting

Photodynamic therapy (PDT) is one of the most promising therapeutic approaches in oncology. The procedures are not complicated and in contrast to traditional chemotherapy without severe side-effects if applied correctly. The principle is the photoactivation of a light sensitive substance (photosensitizer) which is injected into the bloodstream or directly into the tumor. The lecture will focus on the development of...
