Is Cold Laser Good for the Brain?
People are asking about cold laser therapy. They want to know if it is good for brain damage and if it will help with Alzheimer's, dementia and seizures?
These are excellent questions and we could certainly use some good news around these subjects because all too often drugs and surgery do not seem like a viable solution to help ourselves or our loved ones. Following is some very encouraging information that I'm sure you will appreciate.
A teenager who experienced up to 40 seizures a day received relief and healing from Cold Laser Therapy. The therapy consists of laser beams being pointed at Rachel’s head for 12 minutes at a time, three times a week. Her mother said the beams almost instantly made her seizures disappear. “The seizures quickly diminished to nothing,” she said.
Laser therapy has been found to improve the brain function and structure following traumatic brain injury (TBI). Following TBI in animals this study assessed the effect of laser therapy producing a beneficial effect on the long-term outcome of brain lesions. An 810 nm laser was employed transcranially 4, 6 or 8 hrs post-trauma to illuminate the entire cortex of the brain. The wavelength of 800-830 nm is often used because of its deep penetration. MRI analysis demonstrated significantly smaller brain damage in laser treated mice as compared to controls and the best results was when the laser was pulsed at 100 Hz. This is one more study documenting that low level laser applied to the skull provides a significant long-term functional neurological benefit following brain injury.
“An experimental helmet, which scientists in the UK say could reverse the symptoms of Alzheimer’s disease within weeks of being used is to be tried out on patients. The strange-looking headgear – which has to be worn for ten minutes every day – bathes the brain with infra-red light and stimulates the growth of brain cells.
Its creators believe it could reverse the symptoms of dementia – such as memory loss and anxiety – after only four weeks.

There is a Cold Laser that is well suited for doing treatments on the head and skull. It incorporates both Red Laser and Infrared Laser beams (a total of 16 lasers), plus violet light to cover a large 2.5" diameter area and provide significant low level laser energy to the brain and surrounding cells and tissues. This FDA cleared laser is called the Scalar Wave Laser, which allows the user to program any desired frequency or combination of frequencies from 0-40,000 Hz. Additionally it produces scalar waves, which help to accelerate healing by clearing cellular memory through the shifting of polarity, and the unwinding frequency, which helps to remove contraction and returns cells to neutrality.
The Scalar Scalar Wave Laser comes preprogrammed with 11 key Hz frequency settings that support the user in working with the widest range of symptoms and conditions on a cellular level. For a free consultation with a laser specialist call Kalon Prensky at 808-870-0348
