Energy Healing: Lasers May Help Skin Healing in Diabetics
Posted Aug 25 2008 3:13pm
Light energy has been known for its healing effects for many years. Recently the use of light energy in the form of low level lasers (LLLT) has been increasing for a variety of conditions. One of these conditions is the healing of skin lesions. For example, diabetic patients can suffer from skin sores that defy healing.
Now researchers at Mazandran Medical University in Iran studied the effects of LLLT on skin lesions in diabetic mice. They induced the mice with diabetes and took two sets of skin samples. One sample was exposed to LLLT and the other had a sham treatment. The results showed an increase in tissue cells (fibroblasts) in the LLLT group. Fibroblasts are important in the repair of skin tissue.
This study may have important implications in the treatment of sores from diabetes using low level laser therapy. How does LLLT work? There are some theories and I write about these in "Unlocking the Healing Code."
