Has anybody tried the red light therapy or the light beam generator to improve lymphedema?

I have come across these two technologies and was thinking about giving the red light a go. The light beam generator instead looks a bit expensive and difficult a place where to do it.

Hello,

we had a speaker from haddenham health care come along to our support group last year.she showed us the hand held version. It seemed eady to use but like many of these appliance's how it worked for you would vary.Go onto hadhealth.com, producit explains what the low level lazer does. There is also a form for vat exemption if you pay uk VAT. I have spoken and emailed them and find them very helpful . Good luck.

I have a red light therapy bed but I wasn't aware that it could help with lymphodema. I haven't found it to increase collagen.

I think the one that works with lymphedema has to have a specific wavelength...

Haddenham Healthcare LtdCrendon House, Crendon Industrial park,Long Crendon, HP18 9BB I have copied and pasted phone fax and postal address for you. Let me know how you get on. I have an email address somewhere for the speaker we had but think its in work. I have rung them a few times and have always found them helpful. I have also set up a V.A.T. Exemption certificate with them so do not pay VATon some products. This last bit may not make sense if you are not from theUK.

GOOD LUCK

I bought a book about coping with lymphedema the holistic way and it mentions the red light therapy, only to be done with LED emitting lights at a certain frequency (it should 660nm but double check before trying), results vary from person to person.
