My husband's good results fromthe VieLight 810
I will preface this by saying that about one month before using the VieLight 810, he started on Seraquel, 25 mg. for psychosis. At that time, he was totally disoriented, wandering the house constantly,wearing diapers and couldn't sleep at all. It brought him out of that to the point he was no longer "crazy.". He was still in bad shape.
About a month later, January 7, 2018, he started using the VieLight 810 after I read about it in AARP magazine in an article on light therapy. It is a small , playing card sized devise that can hook on your pocket, or be hand held, and it has an attached devise that delivers ultra red light therapy through the nasal cavity. The premise is that there is a membrane at the top of the nose where the pulses can go through to the base of the brain and repairs brain damage of many sorts, Alzheimer's, Parkinson, stroke. You use it once a day for 25 minutes.
He was in such bad shape with moderate dementia, that it took him days to figure out how to turn it on at a little area you press on. I marked it with red fingernail polish so he could find it.
He is 78 years old and has had Parkinson's for around 7 years. He doesn't have bad tremors, but had significant insomnia, dementia and balance problems. He hallucinated horribly. (he saw hands coming out of the bedspread, teams of people playing baseball in our yard, ants all over the floor, etc.)
The theory is that the ultra red light nourishes the bottom of the brain and repairs damage. It releases serotonin to the brain.
They say it will start showing results in about 2 weeks and it did.
He couldn't be trusted to drive and now he can. He had horrible insomnia, and now he sleeps most nights and doesn't doze off all day. The hallucinations are gone. He doesn't need a diaper. He is walking much better; he uses a cane and hasn't fallen in a long time. (He is still getting wound care from when he fell while being psychotic and fighting off imaginary intruders, but it is healing well.)
He is playing chess with a friend and playing free on line poker.(this when he couldn't turn on the devise previously) He interacts with normal conversation.I can only tell you how wonderful the results are, as I thought he was close to needing hospice and/or going into a home. As a caregiver, my life was unrelentingly horrible!
He is using less Sinemet.
There is also a VieLight Gamma. That one also has a band that fits over the head and works more to help the immune system. Maybe it helps with tremors. It is $1600.
If one stops using the VieLight 810, supposedly, the bad symptoms come back in about in a month. This one (the 810, which is the frequency of light used) costs $499 and has a guarantee that if it doesn't work within 6 months they give you your money back, less 20 percent. They don't resell them, so they are taking a loss in that case.
You can go to VieLight.com where there is a lot of information and video.
I suggest you try it if your loved one, or you, yourself, has dementia.
If anyone has any questions, feel free to ask. I want others to be spared the awful life we were leading that can be, hopefully, helped with this devise.
