Duo Coronet vs Vielight

Grumpy77 profile image

I couldn't find this comparison done before in the searches

Any thoughts on advantages, disadvantages and comparative benefits and effectiveness for PwP tremors and other symptoms

If you had bought one over the other, what criteria tipped your decision? Cost? Reviews? Or other?

I'm about to order my coronet, but I might return it and still get the vielight if I have to

I'm not surprised that you couldn't find this comparison. They are both pretty expensive, so it is unlikely that anyone has bought both.

What we really need is a clinical trial to compare them! 🙂

Okay, but you can't stop there! You have to give us a comparison.

I bought the Vielight Gamma in 2019 . There was some improvement in sense of smell after 12 weeks of use but it did not improve beyond that. The Vielight has a head piece with 4 light points and a intranasal clip, shining on top of the head. The first point was 1 cm from the hairline and the other 3 a little further back.

We were not so diligent using it after awhile because his sense of smell was not fully restored and we gave up.

In May this year, we ordered the Coronet Duo after reading about JIm’s progress. The Coronet Duo has many light points that shine all over the head. Catherine mentioned that the important part was the back of the head. I felt comforted that no part of the brain would be missed out. My husband experienced an amazing change together with the probiotic PS 128. I would be using both simultaneously since I cannot exclude either for this improvement.

Do you know how the PS 128 helped? I tried it and it made my tremor worse.

It says on the back of the box that Psychobiotic PS 128 can significantly ameliorate anxiety, depression like behaviours, increase dopaminergic activity in the brain and reduce stress induced elevation of serum corticosterone and inflammatory cytokine levels .

It also has K21 which can modulate immune responses in order to restore or prevent metabolic disorders caused by chronic inflammation.

My husband always had gut issues. With PS 128 within 10 days of consuming it he had vast improvement in balance, driving and mental alertness. He had only been using Coronet Duo for 4 1/2 weeks. He moved slowly but did not have tremor. Instead of taking 2 sachets at bedtime try spacing it out like one early in the morning and another just before bed. In the Taiwanese clinical trial they used 2 sachets at bedtime. But the agent here just said take 2-3 sachets a day 1 hour after food or on empty stomach.

I did mention that my husband was using Coronet Duo and probiotic PS 128 simultaneously.

He is not on any PD meds other than B1 and Niacin, ubiquinol . Are you on any meds? Is there a possibility that with the PS 128 and your meds you are having too much of something that has aggravated your tremor because PS 128 increases dopaminergic activity in the brain. You can email the company for support. Wishing you the best outcome .

Thanks for all the information and suggestions! Did you purchase it from Solace? I don't believe my box says K21. I've been thinking of trying the Coronet. Thanks

I purchased the product from here

activhealth.com.sg/multibio...

It’s psychobiotic PS128 plus K21

I don't believe it's my meds but it might be. I am definitely worse for about a week after I take any probiotic??I take 6-7 C/L and 2 Gocovri and 1 Lexapro.

Very helpful info, thank you. BTW which niacin is your husband using ?

Millbrook profile image
Millbrook in reply to KERRINGTON

He is on the flushing niacin. He gets 100 mg from his B complex and another additional 125 mg flushing niacin. I have solgar 250 mg niacin and I break it into half to add to his dose.

I read a book written by Ari Whitten, "Red Light Therapy" and he said if you are wanting to use it primarily for your brain then the Vielight is the best option. He states that near- infrared is superior to infrared because it gets through the skull more effectively, specifically for the brain. He also said they make a product called Vielight Neuro which is a much higher power device with multiple white points around the skull. It can be placed to admit like through the hair follicles directly on the skin so that hair doesn't block the light. The Vielight Neuro may very well be the best product for treating the brain specifically we don't know for sure as there are no studies comparing it to LED lights but it looks to be a great product.

Does the book say anything about the Coronet Duo?

laglag profile image
laglag in reply to jeffreyn

No it doesn't but if you are going to use one I recommend buying it, There is a lot of good info in the book ón how they work, the proper timing, placement etc.

jeffreyn in reply to laglag

Thanks.

I note from your Amazon link that the book's publication date is given as July 2018. Maybe the Coronet Duo was not yet available at that point in time.

Hello Jeff

About 2 months ago you said you have been using the Coronet duo since October 2020 and you haven't noticed any difference to your symptoms good or bad

Is that still the same or have you noticed some improvements?

jeffreyn profile image
jeffreyn in reply to Grumpy77

I bought a Well Red TheraPad about that time (i.e. about 2 months ago), and have been using it on my abdomen during my twice-daily sessions with the Coronet Duo. Since then, I have noticed improvements with my tremor and my general happiness. I tend to associate these improvements with the TheraPad, but it could be that it is the combination of the 2 products that is causing these improvements.

Hello Jeff

I know it's early days and improvements is still progressing but how much % do you feel your tremor has improved so far?

Thank you

jeffreyn profile image
jeffreyn in reply to Grumpy77

It is hard to be precise because I have not kept a written record, but it is noticeable. Some days I don't seem to have any tremor at all. Other days I have just an internal tremor (i.e. I can sometimes feel a tremor but it's not visible). Other days there is a mild tremor now and then, but it does not bother me. Stress still brings on the tremor, but it's a weaker tremor than before.

Can you use if you had dbs

laglag in reply to hanifab23

I really don't know. I think I would ask your doctor. 🥊

There was some research done recently in Australia, which was described in an article in The Australian newspaper on infrared and near infrared light. I wanted to send it to a couple of friends, but only had it in hard copy and couldn’t get it on line. Catherine from Wellred emailed it to me , with some comments. She would no doubt send it to you.

My husband’s neurologist said that the researchers are well regarded. He also said that some of his patients have used the coronet with very good results.

I hope this helps. I will report on our experience in time.
