Skin Damage Prevention Using PBM Therapy

PBM Therapy For Radiation Dermatitis

Preconditioning PBM Therapy For Radiation Dermatitis

X-ray radiation has been used successfully as a treatment to damage and kill harmful cancer cells and tumours for more than 100 years.  It is estimated that about two-thirds of all cancer patients will receive Radiation Therapy (RT) either as a unique treatment or as a part of the more complex therapeutic protocol.

RT nowadays uses a variety very high-energy waves such as X-rays, Gamma Rays, and high energy particles such as electron beams, or protons.  All with the aim of destroying or damaging cancer cells/tumours.  Unfortunately, as a consequence of this valuable treatment any normal cells/tissues in the way also get damaged repeatedly during the weeks/months of treatment.  This gives rise to a horrific painful skin condition called Radiation Dermatitis (also known as Radiodermatitis).

PBM Therapy prevents radiation skin damage

As many as 95% of patients treated with Radiation Therapy for cancer will experience this often debilitating skin reaction.  The severity of the condition is graded 0-3 , the most severe being 3.  Research has shown (see below) that Preconditioning PBM Therapy is a way to help prevent/severely lessen this horrible condition.   What is preconditioning PBM Therapy?  Just click the link to find out more about how PBM Therapy can enhance how your cells function!

Radiation Skin Grading

The Results

Above shows trial results comparing patients with breast cancer who had preconditioning PBM Therapy and Radiotherapy and those who just had the Radiotherapy on its own.

“The skin cells and tissue of the preconditioning PBM Therapy group becomes more resilient to Radiation Induced Dermatitis”

The preconditioned PBM Therapy group were almost all graded as zero or 1 and those without preconditioning PBM Therapy were graded mostly 2 or 3. This is a hugely significant difference in terms of health, quality of life, pain and disability!

What Health Advantages Could Preconditioning Give You?

Preconditioning PBM Therapy* could potentially have big benefits for your cells and so your health.  Triggering defensive cell mechanisms, maximising repair and rejuvenation mechanisms, helping to make the cells more resilient to damage and death.  PBM Therapy is already accepted by mainstream medicine to help prevent and help reverse some diseases caused by chemical attack – chemotherapy treatments.   Clinical trials for example have also shown how:

*PBM Therapy Clinic comment almost all the preconditioning research has been performed using hand held devices (like our LX2’s) targeting a specific body part.  Researchers did not use whole body PBM Therapy.   Why? Whole Body Light beds are very expensive and scarce.  There are only about 170 NovoTHOR PBM Therapy light beds at this time in the world and only 7 in the UK.  Hand held devices by comparison are much cheaper and therefore more plentiful.

NovoTHOR Whole Body PBM Therapy Vs Body Part PBM Therapy

The NovoTHOR light bed pod means you have the potential to have multiple preconditioning benefits all at the same time, even some that you were not expecting. e.g. enhancing muscular strength, performance and recovery.  Apart from preconditioning – there are so many other health benefits that PBM Therapy has demonstrated that are good borne out by years of research.

The NovoTHOR PBM Therapy light bed pod surrounds your whole body thus bathing you head to toe with Red and Near Infra Red (NIR) penetrating light with the potential to affect all the Mitochondria in the cells that the light interacts with.  These are found in abundance in each and every cell in your body and are needed to provide energy to the cell so it can perform the job it has been programmed to do!

It’s been recently discovered that these Mitochondria can also migrate in your blood stream travelling around your body reaching potentially all parts of the body, even where the PBM Therapy light cannot reach.  This might explain some of the systemic effects PBM Therapy has on parts of the body or the brain tPBM affects that occur too deep for the light to reach.
