LED phototherapy with polarized light for problems in adolescence

PROBLEMS IN ADOLESCENCE ACNE AND BLACKHEADS A large proportion, almost 90% of teenagers suffer from this “illness”, which may cause severe esthetic and psychological problems. Additionally, improper treatment may leave behind permanent scars. Acne or blackheads – commonly called pimples – form when the opening of the sebaceous glands in the skin becomes blocked for some reason, which leads to the proliferation of bacteria, and eventually to inflammation. Pimples usually emerge during adolescence in response to a combination of factors, such as hormonal changes, inherited predisposition, and environmental effects. In order to prevent more significant blemishes and unsightly scars, acne treatment should start early. Cleansing is very important: facial skin should be thoroughly cleaned in the morning and in the evening with lukewarm water and soap or a cleansing lotion. Remove all powder or makeup before going to bed. Only non-irritating and nondrying facial care products should be used. Do not use strongly drying and irritating liquid soaps because they increase sebum production. In order to avoid oiliness of the forehead, frequent hair washing is recommended. Topical treatments used in home care may be sufficient for the mildest cases: in order to counteract a too thick stratum corneum, pimples should be treated with exfoliants, drying paste, or suspensions, usually applied in the evening. Pharmacological therapy may be used in addition to localized treatments. Treatment ■ treat the affected area for 10 to 15 minutes two or three times a day. Color therapy ■ the color green is recommended for the affected area, yellow for the liver and the spleen, and orange for the kidneys.

NEONATAL DISEASES The significance of treatment with the lamp is that since it has no side effects, in can be used for the treatment of infants. It accelerates healing, it is painless, and in many cases can be used while the infant is asleep. ALLERGY Allergy is an overreaction of the body to substances that generate no response under normal conditions. These substances are called allergens. The binding of allergen to an antibody triggers tissue inflammation. Generally speaking, allergies are an illness of the young, and unless chronic organic disorders are present (such as the narrowing of bronchi in asthma), symptoms usually become more moderate with advancing age. The symptoms of infantile or childhood allergic disease may shift as the child ages. For example, the symptoms of pediatric eczema and food allergies may clear up, or be replaced by other allergies such as hay fever and/or asthma. Diagnosis and proper treatment are very important, because any childhood allergy can increase the risk of developing asthma. Symptoms can vary greatly depending on which organ is the site of the allergic reaction. In all cases, the cause of the allergy should be clarified before commencing treatment. Since a predisposition to allergies can be inherited, and other factors also play a role in the development of allergic symptoms and allergic diseases, it is very important to take certain preventive steps in the case of high risk infants (a family history of allergies) in order to decrease the risk of the development of symptoms or disease. These precautions include: Breastfeed your child as long as possible. (Studies have shown that 6 months of breastfeeding decreases risk.) If you are unable to breastfeed, choose a so-called hypoallergenic formula. Unless it is medically indicated, do not take any medication during breastfeeding. Under the age of 1 year, your infant should not receive any foreign proteins such as cow’s milk. Any new foods should be introduced gradually into your infant’s diet. Do not smoke around your child. The environment of your infant should be free of allergenic materials (e.g. dust and mold, etc.) and domestic pets (e.g. cats and dogs, etc.). Treatment ■ According to the standard practice of the treatment of skin problems, the area to be treated should be cleaned first. Light therapy should be applied 2 to 3 times a day, illuminating the affected area for 4 minutes during each session. If your doctor prescribed a cream, it should be applied to the affected area before light therapy, and if the area is large the light should be moved back and forth over it. Color therapy ■ illuminate the area of the spleen and liver with yellow light for 6 minutes each, and the thymus with green light (in children). HIVES (URTICARIA) This is a local allergic reaction. A small, itchy rash that does not rise above the skin surface, it is mostly caused by food or drug allergy or contact allergens (such as chemicals), but can also be triggered by inhaled allergens (such as pollen). It is a very common allergic symptom. In rare cases, a chronic (long-lasting, frequently recurring) form occurs, and a thorough medical check-up and longterm monitoring might be required to identify the triggers. It is worth identifying and then eliminating the trigger. Treatment ■ 2 to 3 times 10 minutes daily. Color therapy ■ the color green, then orange is recommended. TEETHING Teething typically starts at the age of four months, and lasts until about age 2.5 to 3 years. Polarized light therapy helps reduce pain, promotes restful sleep, and alleviates the potential cold-like symptoms that accompany teething. Treatment ■ 10 minutes, on the affected area. Twice daily. Color therapy ■ light therapy can be complemented with the color blue. EAR PAIN Middle ear infection Frequent in children and infants, but also occurs in adults. In response to ear pain, small children frequently touch their ears, or the ears may be extremely sensitive to pressure. Hearing can deteriorate, moreover, neglected illness can lead to permanent hearing loss in children. See your doctor as soon as possible – do not wait until your child’s eardrum has to be lanced! Otitis externa A skin disease, inflammation of the external ear canal that is accompanied by severe pain, caused in most cases by water entering the ear canal. The child should be examined by a doctor in all cases, because antibiotic treatment is often unavoidable. In such cases the lamp should be used as a complementary treatment. Treatment ■ as a complementary treatment, 6 to 8 minutes, 2 to 3 times a day. The healthy ear should be treated too! Color therapy ■ the color green alleviates inflammation of the ears, then orange strengthens the immune system. ABDOMINAL PAIN Abdominal pain arises due to a variety of conditions. Always make sure that your child’s abdominal pain is not caused by serious illness! Newborns frequently experience abdominal discomfort due to swallowed air, and they have not yet learned how to get rid of wind produced during digestion. In addition to burping, these pains can be alleviated with polarized light, and the treatment also has a calming effect on the baby. Treatment ■ twice daily for 6 to 8 minutes on the abdominal area. Color therapy ■ the color blue has a calming effect on children. BRONCHITIS Polarized light therapy (used as a complementary treatment) can accelerate this illness running its course. Treatment ■ the mucosa of the throat and the pharynx, the maxillary lymph nodes on the front side of the neck, the hili of the lungs on both sides of the sternum and the area under the shoulder blades, and the thymus in children, twice daily for 6 to 8 minutes.

LED phototherapy with polarized light for sleep disorders

SLEEP DISORDERS Sleep is part of the life of humans and most vertebrates. It is essential for our bodies from both a qualitative and a quantitative standpoint. During sleep, the body regenerates and prepares for the next physical and mental challenges, and our subconscious sorts out the events of the previous day. The need for sleep is different at different ages: newborn babies only seem to wake up to feed, while old people can get by with only a few short hours of sleep. Two cycles alternate during sleep. During the non-rapid eye movement (NREM) or slow wave sleep (SWS) phase, the energy of the body is restored, and growth hormones are released. This cycle is interrupted by REM (rapid eye movement) periods, primarily characterized by irregular, faster and shallower breathing. The eyes perform rapid movements in all directions, while the muscles of the extremities are temporarily unable to move. Dreaming mostly happens during the REM phase. Studies have shown that brain areas involved in learning, thinking, and organizing are active during this period. Lack of sleep impairs performance and adaptability, increases the risk of accidents, decreases immune defenses, and prolonged sleep deprivation can lead to death. Most sleep disorders are associated with some type of physical, psychiatric, or psychological illness or problem, although they can also occur as a separate condition. Sleep disorders most frequently manifest as problems falling or staying asleep, early waking, or a combination of both. However, there are also specific sleep disorders such as narcolepsy (sudden, unexpected sleep attacks at various times of the day) or somnambulism (sleepwalking). Today there are several sleep centers in Hungary (one center in the Heim Pál Children’s Hospital is specializing in the treatment of children). It is recommended that you visit one of these if the sleep disorder has been present for a long time. Treatment ■ illuminate the back along the spine for 4 minutes, proceeding from point to point. Color therapy ■ the use of the color blue is recommended.

LED phototherapy with polarized light for diabetes

DIABETES (DIABETES MELLITUS) The most common metabolic disease in the world, diabetes can lead to severe complications and the number of patients is increasing year after year. It is caused by a lack of insulin or the insensitivity of the body to insulin. As a consequence, glucose is not taken up by the cells, but is excreted through the urine while taking a large amount of water with it. Type 1 diabetes usually develops quickly and is only recognized when the affected individual falls into a coma. Type 2 diabetes develops slowly, almost imperceptibly, so it usually comes to light in the course of a routine medical check-up, indicated by elevated blood glucose levels or elevated urine glucose levels. Since the cells are unable to absorb glucose, the concentration of glucose increases in response to absolute or relative insulin deficiency. The amount of excreted urine increases due to high blood glucose levels (hyperglycemia), because above a certain glucose level (usually from 10 mmol/L) the kidneys can no longer retain glucose and it is excreted with the urine together with a large volume of water. This water loss makes the patient thirsty. In some cases, prolonged fatigue, delayed wound healing, recurrent acne, or itching may point to diabetes. Hyperglycemia can induce ophthalmologic complications, such as visual disturbances. Ophthalmologists sometimes call attention to possible diabetes after recognizing characteristic changes to the back of the eye. Since glucose is not taken up by the body, the weight of the individual may decrease even with unchanged or increased appetite. The patient can adjust to the symptoms, so it is common for the complications of diabetes to be first recognized by a doctor. Polarized light therapy is an important complementary therapy in diabetes, especially because diabetics often suffer a weakened immune system and vascular damage, both of which can cause a plethora of other disorders. These can be mitigated by treating the appropriate areas with polarized light. Treatment ■ treat the eyes, the kidneys and the pancreas for 10 minutes each, repeated after 30 minutes. Color therapy ■ the use of the color yellow is recommended, and the kidneys should be treated with orange
