How the VieLight 810 helped my husband

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.

I want to point out something very important here. What rhyspeace12 is describing with her husband is VERY MUCH in line with lewy body dementia or PDD (Parkinson's disease dementia). To confirm this, I read through her previous comments about her husband and they match extremely well with PDD or LBD. In her husband's case, he has extreme impairment of his cholinergic neurons. These neurons are located right behind the nose and they branch out deeply, supplying the cortex with acetylcholine. The cortex is responsible for cognition and memory. When it is not supplied adequately with acetylcholine, you get dementia. In the case of PDD and LBD, there is SEVERE impairment of the cholinergic neurons. In PDD/LBD these neurons 'downregulate their phenotype' and they shrivel up and stop producing acetylcholine. As rhyspeace12 has found with her husband, if you tickle these neurons using the Vielight 810, these cholinergic neurons will rejuvenate, at least to a moderate extent, so long as you continue to use the device on a regular basis. That's why he's improved so much cognitively.

Why is this important? If you have LBD, PDD, or a flavor of Parkinson's that features significant cognitive impairment, then the Vielight 810 might be for you. Significant impairment/loss of the cholinergic system is also seen in Alzheimer's, so the device would likely be helpful with that as well.

What about this device for regular PD? Well, the nasal cavity allows that Vielight 810 to shine into the lower part of the front half of the brain. (The nasal cavity is unique in that it is pretty much the only area that allows direct access to the brain.) Even then, the light energy will only penetrate 1-2 cm into the brain tissue. These frontal circuits are involved in cognition, attention, memory, speech, etc. While boosting these circuits are of great benefit to someone with PDD or LBD, the results will be less dramatic for someone with PD. For example, the 810 shines into the nucleus basalis of meynert which is located right behind the nose. This is where most of the brain's cholinergic neurons are located. Boosting the cholinergic system will not typically improve Parkinson's movement symptoms very much. Now, that's not to say that someone with PD wouldn't see any improvement. Maybe it might help with non-motor symptoms a little bit.

I am a fair bit skeptical about the more expensive devices, the Vielight alpha and gamma models. These have energy emitters on top of the head that shine downwards though the skull, with hopes of penetrating more of the brain. The trouble with this is twofold. One, the skull is reasonably thick and also quite dense, so a fair portion of the energy won't make it through to the brain. Also, directly behind the skull there is a cushion of brain fluid, and this fluid would absorb a good bit of the energy as well. So this means that the idea of applying energy through the skull is not going to be nearly as effective. As of right now, I would not shell out $1400 or $1600 for the expensive Vielight alpha or gamma devices.

This is all still a very much experimental technology.

Great info. Did you see the post that yeramian just posted about some type of light? Is it similar?

Reply

No that's different. Yeramian's post is talking about bright light therapy, which is essentially just a really bright light that you put in front of you for a few hours upon waking in the morning. It might help a little with fatigue and sleepiness, but probably not much more than that. More info on that can be found here:

I have what the neurologist referred to as "classic" Parkinson's. Tremor and some impact on my motor abilities such as foot dragging when walking. I have noticed that an anticholinergic made walking more difficult. With that in mind is it not reasonable to try this device in the hope that it might make walking easier?

My husband says it hasn't improved his walking, but I think it has. When he was psychotic, he was crawling. He uses a cane now and walks slowly.

Too bad they're not a sideline business of the pharmaceutical industry -has to come from them to get covered by insurance - no matter how well it works.

The VieLight doesn't make money for anyone, so it doesn't get the word spread. It doesn't have sponsored trials. I told my husband's neurologist i was going to try it and he laughed AT me! We don't have another check up until early March. I am not going to mention it and I will see if he comments on seeing any difference. But, I doubt he will. He is not a pleasant man and I doubt he even recognizes us from visit to visit. He is who we have to put up with because of our insurance. When my husband had psychosis, the neuro mentioned a new drug that cost $2700 a month! I figure at $499 this is a deal!!

There is a neurologist here that people love, unfortunately, he isn't ours. He mostly gives the proper treatment, but he doesn't care about how the patient feels. I've learned more here than I ever have from him.

So I'm confused. Is this the maker ? vielight.com/about-us/

They appear to be a corporation - not a non-profit & it reads as though they are involved in clinical trials (but maybe not for PD ?) - anyway, just trying to get clear. I have no patience with doctors who laugh at ANYthing - they are not real scientists. (And how arrogant & condescending.) A REAL scientist knows that they don't know everything & that the most profound discoveries are often found where least expected. The world is not flat & just because an idea doesn't fit one's present parameters of reality doesn't mean it's not real/true. Ok - I'm off my soapbox for now. ;-)

Thanks for sharing the info !

These seem to be the people who invented it and are marketing it. I understand they don't have the backing with money to do trials. It isn't a money maker like prescription medicine to make a big profit on. For whatever reason, i am so glad to have found about about it . It has mostly been used for Alzheimer's patients and tested on them.

From a simple, personal perspective, my husband and I were laughing today about what a fun time we had going to Costco as he drove a motorized cart around inspecting everything as i shopped, and then he drove us to In and Out Burger. We had a normal day, a day I never expected to have again, before he started using the VieLight 810.

We need to be advocates! If it doesn't work we need to know that too, but if hers isn't too far advanced, I bet it will!

Hello rhyspeace12

I am so fortunate to find this website this morning. Your sharing and succint explanation by hopeful88 have edged me to purchase Vielightneuro gamma for my husband's alzheimer's. I only came across this device 2 wks ago. Disappointingly, Alzheimer’s Organisations are not aware. At the same time, I saw a trial recruiting Alzheimer’s participants for transcranial magnetic stimulation. The trial protocol on treatment durations are similar to current trials on the Vielight in US and Canada. Our acceptance for the transcranial magnetic stimulation is still pending. Treatment is only delivered at clinics unlike the Vielight. Effects can last for 8 months after the treatment and hence requires booster treatment follow ups. As time is of the essence for a faster recovery, your information and that of hopeful88 have convinced me to go ahead with the purchase.

Thank you, All for this opportnity to follow this community.

Warmest regards

I tried the 810 a couple of years ago, and much to my chagrin (and now relief), there was no effect for me. That being said, I think the technology is interesting because in theory, it stimulates the mitochodrian electron transport chain. Ubiquinol did that for me too, so I thought it was worth a shot.

I just went and looked it up. I had never heard of it before. It sounds like another good thing to try. I got phosphatidyl serine for my husband in the past. He didn't stay on it long enough to see if it was helping, but I take it to feel calm and it has made a big difference over the last 3 years, or so.

For many months I went through the same thing with my husband, it is really hard to watch your loved one slip away that way he wasn't quite as bad with the hallucinations but it was bad enough he saw a little people running all over our house and the lack of sleep for both of us was unbelievable. I believe the hallucinations also become stronger with sleep deprivation. His neurologist started him on Quetiapine.25mg and hallucinations stopped thank goodness but he does suffer from difficulty speaking at times and confusion he has always exercised and is extremely lucky because he still can go to the gym and work out daily with the help of a friend. We are interested in trying this and appreciate very much you sharing this information.

I sure hope it helps you. It is a miracle to me, and I also ordered some choline capsules on Amazon, figuring maybe it would deliver more actyelcholine to his brain. Quetapine 25 mg. once a day is also what my husband is taking (Seraquel) It has worked well for the psychosis.

I didn't realize that his hallucinations were so scary at times, he wasn't mentioning the monsters he was seeing.

Once he started the VieLight 810 he stopped requiring so much Sinemet. I think he is getting more natural dopamine from the ultra red light.

Order it directly from the VieLight site and you will get the 6 month money back guarantee.

I agree, just being able to get some sleep helped a lot. It is the confusion that I think the Vie Light has helped the most, in addition to the ability to sleep.

I'm using the vielight neuro gamma with the headset. I don't know if the headset is really effective. It seems like just the nose insert is sufficient and is probably the most helpful. I've been using it a few months. It's a set timer for 20 minutes that I use each evening before bed. Best wishes!

Hello janers, Do you have a rest from the treatment on one day a wk as recommended? I worry about overdosing my husband. Did that on the 5th day when he had 2 treatments of 20mins. His sleep talking and jerkings returned at the night. Delighted you are responding.

Hello Janer. He has embraced the device. Still early days with progress slowed down possibly due to positioning of the LED modules. Finally beginning of the 4th week, I think I have got it right with confirmation from the agent and our doctor, together with the website diagram.

All the info i got was by typing in VieLIght.com and looking for the VieLight810 results (many articles an videos) and others devises using light therapy. I first got the information on light therapy helping in an article in AARP magazine. It was the December 2017 issue. The paragraph with the heading Alzheimers Disease. It is still working for my husband.

PS. The most it would cost you is 20 percent of $500 if it doesn't help you within 6 months

My husband came home today very happy. He had won all three of the chess games he played. At his worst,several months ago, he couldn't even remember how to play. Since acytelcholine is supposed to be delivered to his brain with the VieLIght, I decided to give him choline capsules too, starting about a week ago. Maybe it is helping. I am trying choline myself and it has really perked me up. So much so, I won't take it at bed time.

Reply

Trying this on my dad now. But what I don't understand is, if this stimulates acytelcholine and he's on Kemadrin aka Procyclidine which is an anticholinergic and blocks receptors for acytelcholine, is the Kemadrin causing long term harm?

Reply

It would make sense that it would deprive him of need choline, but i really don"t know. Hopeful88 gave me some really good information on why the VieLight 810 works; maybe he would know the answer to your question.

Reply

If the cost of the Vielight 810 seems prohibitive, check out this prior discussion titled Red Light Therapy on this site. You can make your own red light therapy device and there is a Blog that gives you instructions for doing it. The blog is redlightsonthebrain.blog and is associated with research being done on Parkinson's in Tasmania. It has tremendous resource information as well as instructions and a forum where persons creating their own light devices share their questions and experience.

To view an online article about one person's results with the self-constructed light helmet, search on the words Max Burr Parkinson's in Google.

Unfortunately the Vielight devices' cost greatly limits the accessibility of these products. It's a shame that the company is a very much for profit venture. ARRP mentioned the Vielight in an article about newer treatments for Alzheimers and Vielight was giving a 10 percent discount at least a number of months ago if you mentioned that you learned about the product from the ARRP article.

I purchased the Vielight 810 for my dad who has Parkinson's and although I think his attention span and social interaction has improved a bit, the rest of my family hasn't recognized anything. I've just built the homemade light therapy device and we are going to give that a try.

Reply

Since they will give you your money back if it doesn't work within 6 months, it can't hurt to try. It has definitely helped my husband. It helps those most who have Parkinson's dementia. If you don't have dementia, you may not notice any difference.

They still don't return 20% which is double it's genuine worth. They sell the returned ones to other customers. I am saying this because the batteries of mine don't work; it seems used one

It worked for my husband, that's the best i can say. I know it is expensive, but I would willingly pay more. Since Nuplazid, for the dementia in Alzheimer's and Parkinsons costs at least $700 a MONTH, using this devise to help repair his brain has been well worth it.

I've heard they don't resell the ones that are returned. I looked up a lot of information from many sources before i bought it. Did you read the info on why it works from another PD patient in response to my original post? I'm not selling anything, i just wanted others to have hope that perhaps it could work for them like it did for my husband.

Thank you for sharing as I am searching for more reviews on Vielight Neuro Gamma before purchasing one for my husband's Alzheimer's. Came across this device only 2 wks ago and missed only 2 articles in the newspaper. Not much publicity on overall transcranial photobiomodulation/ direct current/transmagnetic stimulation for Alzheimer's in Australia. The science behind these treatments show their effectiveness and indeed safe and beneficial. Some recovery will benefit both. The PD Communities in this forum are very knowledgeable about these latest innovations. Hence, I have tapped into your forums.

I have tried to find out what LED specs to use for the purchase to constructing one. What is the equivalent of 810nm at 40Htz etc

Is the Vielight easy to use? Given its portability n positive outcomes, we are planning to order it soon n indeed share the hopefully benefits with the Alzheimer's communities

Any more information will be appreciated. Thank you

Reply

I don't know anything about about the LED specs. There is so much information everywhere that I found here, I will look at some that I have saved and try to send it here. My husband is still doing well as long as he uses it and takes his medication regularly I don't have the Gamma, I have the VieLight810. That is what they used in the short studies they did.They tested Alzheimers patients in the office/clinic for a few months. They saw good improvement. They sent the patient home and took them off of it for a month and the symptoms came back. The care givers were beside themselves, seeing all of the progress go away. Then they made this little devise that they could use at home and the patients got better again.

It is extremely easy to use. you hold or clip on a little devise similar to a cigarette package with a line attached that has an infa red devise on the end of it and goes inside one of the nostrils. You sit there for 25 minutes. It can be used twice day.

It didn't work for you ,and that is unfortunate.

It clost less than a crown on a tooth ,which no one seems to mind paying, and you can get all but 20 percent back for trying it if you return it within 6 months.

A monthly dose of Nuplazid for Parkinson's psychosis costs at least $700 a MONTH with insurance, and this is cheaper by far than that.

I sure hope it works for you! Why did you chose the Neuro Gamma instead of the VieLight810?I thought it was the 810 recommended for dementia? Everything else seems to be an up and down thing with his Parkinson's, medication frustrations and so forth. The VieLight 810 has been the one constant. His physical health leaves a lot to be desired, but having his brain back is wonderful.

I wrote to the founder of the Co and from the various interviews among medical practioners for more information. This device is more intense to reach the whole cortex n specifically focusing on Alzheimer's. I am indeed fortunate to come across this site of proactive sharers. Better now than latter! Lately, my husband's gait n posture were also affected. Tried physiotherapy n now wearing a posture support which helps him to increase our daily walks from 30mins to 45mins. The difficulties started 12 months ago from long distances of 2 hrs to current duration from last 8months. I believe we have to go through this difficult journey to help others! Enjoy now whilst we can!

I have forgotten to mention in all my conversations that the PD patient with dementia is not the one who notices the immediate improvement. The PD patient has Parkinson's dementia,brain damage. He does not recognize the slow improvements. It is the caretaker who does. That's why the Alzheimer's caretakers got so distraught during the trials and wanted to continue with the devise when it was taken away.

It was about two weeks in when i noticed the improvement. It has been great! But, my husband has no clue how much it has helped him, as the new reality is just what it is, normal to him. He doesn't realize how much he has improved.

I have one more comment. First,I want to mention that Seraquel worked wonders in handling bad psychosis. If he goes off it ,he gets confused.

Here are the differences I see in my husband since he started using the VeiLight810 since January. He couldn't do any of these things before the VeiLight810.

1. He is driving again.

2. He is walking up and down our long driveway. He no longer needs his cane.

3. He is sitting in the sun, or in his bedroom reading novels.

4. He is interested in the news on television.

5. He is winning at chess

6. He is communicating and enjoying family gatherings.

7. He spends a lot of time with" Alexa" listening to Music.

8. He is mowing our fields with a lawn tractor.

9. His balance is a lot better and he has stopped falling down.

10. He can sleep at night.

Hello rhyspeace12

I am very inspired by your husband's response, and those of the trials. Our Neuro Gamma arrived on Thurs 17th May evening and had to be charged for 6hrs before use. I had difficulty adjusting the headset and mistook the placement of the front module to be at the centre of the forehead - the frontal lobe. It should be 2cms above the hairline. Nevertheless, he slept well and less jerks. However, the next morning he was tired and lack concentration for his mental test with the GP. We will use this result as the baseline. Interesting to note, his appetite has improved. I am quietly pleased and evidence of his improvement will be best noticed by our friends! As recommended by the manufacturer, I will use the 6 days a wk regime at night. I was tempted to apply twice a day at leadt 6hrs apart for fastet benefits! Looking forward to share more benefits with the Alzheimer’s community on 29th May event.

Reply

Do you know why one day a week it is recommended not to be used? My husband always uses it twice a day, at least 6 hours apart.

Reply

The Neuro Gamma is more intense, pulsed @ 40Hz vs 10Hz for the Alpha. This upgrade application regime was recommended. From yesterday's one application at 8pm vs the first day of2 applications, the lucid moment started to decline by 6pm. Today, I have decided to change to 2 applications of 10mins 8hrs apart. Hopefully, this will be more effective.

Reply

He actually got more lucid with the first day of use? I hope you keep a record of how it works for him each day. I wish i had done that. Before we started our journey,about 5 months ago , I thought he would have to go into care home because I just couldn't handle him . He uses the 810 twice a day at least 6 hours apart for 25 minutes.. It took about a week for him to figure out turning it on.I finally marked the spot with red nail polish. Now, as I say, he can play chess with friends, free on line poker and Suduko again.Sometimes he uses it extra if he feels he needs calming down. Since i don't think it will hurt him, i don't worry about it.

I really appreciate your sharing. I am keeping a record of the progress. My observation to date for optimum performance, 2 applications a day @ 8hrs apart. Yesterday, I kept to the 20mins schedule for the 2nd application at 8pm whilst the 1st @ 12pm. At 2.30am he was restless for 30mins after getting up for the toilet. This has been the case for many months. There were no jerks or sleep talks untill 8am this morning. Looking forward to ongoing recovery! Have a great week.

I so much want to vindicate my belief that it really works and I love hearing how it goes for you. Fingers crossed.

Are you in Australia? I think I mentioned that my daughter married an Australian that she fell in love with in Greece, on a trip she took after graduating from college.We spent a lot of time in the Melbourne, Yarraville area, before they moved over here.

I am in Adelaide, S Aust. Where are you from? Like you, I can't wait to vindicate this device n the science evidence behind light therapy. My husband is a sensitive person, psychologically n physically. He can sense the mobile phone's silent mode calls 2 metres away! He just had his 10min. Trt and will time the 2nd after 8hrs. A minimum of 6hrs apart is often the recommended duration for most prescription. We will keep to this 2x/day plan for 12 wks as in the trial protocol for benchmarking! Hopefully, he has recovered many of the functions to use the device alternate days.

I am in Templeton, California, it's half way between Los Angeles and San Franciso in wine country. We have a little vineyard on 1/3 of 22 acres, and I dread the thought of ever having to leave.

My husband is always questioning how much the VieLight actually does for him. When you mentioned the sleep talk, i said to him, "I'd forgotten how you were always talking in your sleep and muttering during the day." He agreed.

So many little changes that are better. Medicines are added and taken away, but the VieLight seems a constant. His neurologist laughed when I told him we were trying it 5 months ago He doesn't need to see him often anymore because he has improved so much, and i just don't mention it. It's very nice that you have a scientific support group.

Congratulations! But the change in medicine could have contributed- it can take a month to reach maximum effect, right? What Has his dr. Concluded? Happy for you!

My husband started noticeably improving around 2 weeks with the VeiLight. Since Alzheimers, and Parkinson's dementia is a lack of aceltylcholine (sp?) i also give him choline tablets twice a day, but i started that later after he got better with the VeiLight. . Luckily, he likes medications and supplements and will try anything.

I just spotted your note in my hotmail. Our neurologist is not a friendly person so I didn't mention the VeiLight success. It's no fun to be put down by him. We usually dread seeing him. He gives us the proper medications but has no bedside manner. He will think that the anti-psychotic Seraquel is the reason my hubby is doing so much better, and it helped a lot, but I know it is the VieLight that has brought about the great changes once his psychotic brain healed. The VieLight helped a good deal with his sleep and restless legs.Sleeping made a big difference in his health.Not falling over all the time helps. I hear the VeiLight doesn't do a lot for tremors. The Gamma might help more with that than the 810.

Hello rhyspeace12, It's now 12th day of the LED applications. Though early days yet, I have to share these positive results despite trialing out the application schedules n one day overdose of 2 applications of 20 mins in one day:

1) minimal tremors/body jerks and sleep talks

2) improved appetite, finishing the serves n small snacks in between meals

3) no more hand movements at naps n bed times. This is unbelievable.

4) stopped night wandering with his favourite torch to check for intruders. I teased him it's his security run! We now have good sleeps, despite a few bladder calls.

I am looking forward to more recovery to report. Thanks rhyspeace12 for your promising reports n sharing.

God bless us All.
