The first time that I was diagnosed with prediabetes during a routine medical when I was in the Bay Area about 5 years ago, I was surprised. I had not felt any different and had been doing a lot of walking. The medical center gave me counseling about the need and how to change my lifestyle and diet, which I had a hard time complying with.
When I was cleared of this a year later, during another medical, I was just as surprised. I had learned by then that diabetes cannot be reversed. The only thing I had done differently was to take care of my general health the with the regular use of the Intranasal Light Therapy device. Since then the diabetic condition has never surfaced again in medical check-ups.
We now have a collection of testimonies from diabetic patients: prediabetics like myself, full-blown diabetics on medications, including type 1 diabetic patients. For some, there is a need to adjust the medication so that they do not get hypoglycemic.
I should not have been that surprised if I had faith in the collection of evidence even though they are not published in “gold standard” peer-reviewed journals. The sheer number of papers in itself should provide some credibility to the evidence.
The keys to the success of Intranasal Light Therapy for treating diabetes lie in its ability to do several things well:
1. Restore systemic homeostasis – balancing oxidant/antioxidant levels, blood sugar levels etc.
2. Improve microcirculation to improve blood supply to the extremities
3. Managing hormonal production
4. Help release nitric oxide
In addition, I would theorize that the light, through the nasal cavity, would also reach the hypothalamus in the brain to stimulate it to restore balance in the sugar level. This is possible because this therapy has been found to positively affect patients with dementia and various diseases of the brain. See for example the outcomes with stroke patients.
As the result of these activities, typical diabetic conditions such as the following can be controlled:
1. Peripheral neuropathy
3. Cardiovascular diseases
