In late 2015, I started making “hats” and other items using red and near infrared lights. They have been given them to people to try out. At the moment people with the following conditions are using home-made trans-cranial light hats:
- Parkinson’s Disease
- Progressive Supranuclear Palsy
- Huntington’s Disease
- Alzheimer’s Disease
- Multiple Sclerosis
- Meige’s Syndrome
- Motor Neurone Disease.
All are extraordinary people, all with hope that something might improve their health, but also with hope that their experience with the lights will translate into useful information for future treatments.
It made sense to collate the information into one place, to summarise the research, create and maintain a list of references on the effects of red/near infrared light, to chart the ongoing experiences with the lights, to document the changes in the design of the home-made lights and give detailed instructions about how anyone can make a light hat. Hence this blog.
