LED phototherapy with polarized light for neonatal diseases

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:

  1. Breastfeed your child as long as possible. (Studies have shown that 6 months of breastfeeding decreases risk.)
  2. If you are unable to breastfeed, choose a so-called hypoallergenic formula.
  3. Unless it is medically indicated, do not take any medication during breastfeeding.
  4. Under the age of 1 year, your infant should not receive any foreign proteins such as cow’s milk.
  5. Any new foods should be introduced gradually into your infant’s diet.
  6. Do not smoke around your child.
  7. 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.
Color therapy ■ the color green as an anti-inflammatory treatment, blue for lymph nodes.
