Red Light helps Alzheimer's

Alzheimer’s disease is currently ranked as the seventh leading cause of death in the United States and is the most common cause of dementia among older adults. But did you know changes in the brain may begin a decade or more before symptoms appear? During this very early stage of Alzheimer’s, toxic changes are taking place in the brain. Also known as Photobiomodulation (PBMT), Red Light is an amazing therapy to combat this! Red Light helps Alzheimer’s patients and can even help prevent Alzheimer’s.

Red Light Helps Alzheimer’s by…

When taking all these finding together it is clear that PBMT is a powerful therapy in the prevention and treatment of neurodegenerative diseases like Alzheimer’s. This therapy no real side effects & it is not expensive, it is not difficult to do. I highly recommend it!

See the Video Below:

From a Functional Medicine perspective red light therapy is a part of a overall approach to brain problems. We ask the questions like:

  • Why is the brain inflamed?
  • Why is the patient not sleeping well?
  • Why is the brain toxic?
  • Why is there poor blood flow?

The testing I recommend with my patients looks for the root causes of these problems that lead to diseases like Alzheimer’s. The treatment I give my patients focuses on fixing the problems this testing identifies. See more about Functional Medicine HERE.

To get your body to the best baseline, I recommend coming in 3 times a week for full body sessions – each session only lasts fifteen minutes! After 2-3 months (of consistent use), patients usually see results, but some notice immediate benefits! Then, after that, it can be used less frequently or just as frequently to maintain results.

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!

Darrell is highly knowledgeable and really gets to the root of the problem. Unlike a lot of doctors, Darrell doesn't just throw prescriptions at issues. He will test and test - digging for the cause and then working on fixing the issue. He and his staff are professional, courteous, and a joy to be around.

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.
