It's either a complete fluke or its the best treatment I have come across so far.
Do a search and you will see there have been some trials conducted.
I am referring to infa red or red light therapy.
Ages ago I read about supposed healing of aches and pains by directed red light therapy. We bought a light from Amazon for about £20. I think it got used once or twice and then was put away and forgotten.
Recently I have been suffering a finger ulcer. Yesterday it got so painful I was ready to consult a&e or contact my team about the infusion they can give you. But something made me remember the red light. As a last ditch effort to retain control I thought I would give it a try.
It's got a very short lead and the unit is not very manoeuvreable. I had to get myself to a position whereby the red light would concentrate on the wound. Instructions said to use a maximum of 15 minutes. But you would have to be a contortionist to do more with the extremely short lead.
Long story short..
I noticed pain relief almost immediately. But i redressed the wound and spent yesterday with a sock covering my hand and the dressing. Last night was the first night in about a week I haven't been woken by the ulcer pain.
I have just removed the dressing to take a look. Wound has dried out and much less inflammation around it. I have been here several times before but it really does seem to be healing.
I am going to repeat the process again later. If this really does work then it's a full 5 stars from me.
So good I had to share.
