Transcranial red light can improve Parkinson’s disease symptoms. This article calls for increased recognition of the huge potential of Photobiomodulation as a safe, home-based therapy in neurodegenerative diseases.

The article Exploring the use of transcranial photobiomodulation in Parkinson’s disease patients has just been published in the journal Neural Regeneration Research.

It is based on the work of Dr Frank Nicklason, Dr Catherine Hamilton, Prof John Mitrofanis, Nabil el Massri and David Hamilton.

This article provides a strong argument for faster action in clinical trials. The improvements being experienced and documented by daily light hat users provide convincing and exciting evidence that red lights on the brain do something good.

Improbable as it might sound, plastic bucket hats lined with with LED lights improve symptoms and may even slow down the progression of disease. The improvements can’t be explained away by the placebo effect – there really is something going on here.

As always, sincere thanks to everyone who contribute to the understanding of the effect of transcranial light on neurodegenerative disease, especially those who use the Eliza light hats on a daily basis.

Dr Frank’s patients and generous Blog readers continue to strengthen the arguments for formal clinical research use of transcranial red lights in the management of neurodegenerative diseases, particularly Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s diseases.
