I’ve been answering a lot of emails from people who have recently read about the red/near infrared lights and Parkinson’s disease.
The stories have given hope, and justifiably so, as the case reports have shown that red and near infrared light can help PD symptoms.
But expectations must match the reality of red and near increased lights.
Red and near infrared light will NOT cure Parkinson’s disease.
Red lights will not magically return people to their previously healthy selves.
Red lights will not take the place of PD medication.
Red lights will not create immediate improvements.
In different people, depending on the degree of the disease and their general health, the lights will have variable effects. These effects occur slowly and subtly over time.
Any improvements, however small are worth having, but they do not occur speedily nor dramatically.
I would ask that you temper your expectations.
Maintain hope, but do not expect miracles for you will be disappointed.
