sleep better without medication

How many times has someone asked how you were doing and ‘tired’ was your response? Many people have fatigue and insomnia, but don’t know what can help. If it gets really bad, you may get a prescription, but are there other options to medication? YES! Red Light therapy, also known as Photobiomodulation (PBMT), has been proven to help people to get a better night’s sleep. See below for real studies and patient experience and learn how Red Light can help you sleep better without medication!

Proof It Really Works!

In a study for Alzheimer’s, the researchers discovered that in the active treatment group, the sleep duration increased by an hour after 8 days of treatment and caregivers noted improved mood, energy, and positive engagement in daily activities. None of these functional changes were noted in the placebo arm subjects.

There are so many studies like this one where they were researching PBMT for issues like strokes, brain injuries, anxiety, PTSD, and more. where they had subject report longer deeper sleep as a side effect. This goes to show that Red Light can help with fatigue – even if it is not what you’re working for!

When used specifically for insomnia, it has been observed that patients have had an easier time waking up, felt less tired throughout the day, and had fewer insomnia symptoms. PubMed did a review on PBMT for the brain and confirmed that after reviewing studies that Red Light is an effective treatment for a wide range of brain conditions – including insomnia.

In Our Own Practice, we asked our patients who have been coming in regularly for treatment about their sleep. Here’s what they reported!

  • Deeper Sleep
  • Waking Up Feeling more Rested
  • Falling Asleep faster
  • Needing Less Hours of Sleep to Feel Rested
  • Lots of Dreams – some started dreaming again for the first time in years!

I have been using the Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy for the last few weeks and It has helped me so much. I struggle quite a bit with work related stress. When I'm in the chamber I feel completely relaxed, so much so that I can bring my laptop inside and work without stressing. The calmness I feel in the chamber lasts for the remainder of the day as well. I have found too, the more consistent I am with sessions throughout the week the better I feel. The office staff seems well trained in running the tanks too, so I feel safe. I see Dr. Kilcup as well for my brain and gut health. Until now, I don't think I've ever known what "normal" or "healthy" feels like. Thank you all, sincerely!

I am very grateful to have found Dr. Kilcup and be his patient for the last couple of years. He has helped me restore my health back after being exposed to toxic mold for years. He helped identify and treat all of my symptoms I was experiencing and address the root problem. I was looking for the right person who could help me heal with natural therapies and supplements and Dr. Kilcup was the perfect fit. Every appointment and session was necessary and one step towards all the progress I made. Dr. Kilcup is a great functional medicine doctor who was also an advocate for my own health and well-being. I never received any care or attention to detail from other Doctors in past experiences except with Dr. Kilcup. Anyone who is seeking a holistic path towards healing or improving their own health should see him.
