Here's another story from the case book of Wendy Boast at the Sunu Centre.
It may seem suprising that a cold laser treatment can heal digestive problems – after all there is a massive pharmaceutical industry built on antacids and other (temporary) remedies, and the organs we are targeting are deep in the body. Doctors often don’t have a cure – just remedial drugs, and as the condition is usually not life threatening it is a low priority. Sadly many people live with pain or severe discomfort as a result – IBS and Hiatus Hernias seem to affect a huge number of people. The good news is that I have regular success with these kinds of problems – resolving them for the long term, not just a quick fix.
Many Crohns sufferers have long term pain, for which doctors usually often have to say “live with it”. However, a short treatment with cold laser can remove discomfort for months at a time. I have a number of regular clients who come for a treatment about twice a year to keep them free from pain; here’s a quote from one:
"I have had Crohns disease since a teenager, and still suffered discomfort many years on; with the doctors unable to offer more help. The LILT treatment has really eased the discomfort without any invasive issues or side effects. It is quick and easy and I didn’t feel a thing."
Hiatus Hernias are another example; the standard approach is antacids. These hernias can cause problems with the lungs by leaking acid during sleep, and many of us can testify to the horrible burning reflux in the throat at night. I myself had a large hiatus hernia (X-ray of barium swallow to prove it). The great news is that the laser can heal these hernia easily. Its been three years since mine was healed, and its only when clearing out cupboards and finding the old gaviscon that I remember that I had one!
IBS is another condition which afflicts many people, and although there are drugs available, the condition continues to restrict enjoyment of life for many people. However, again the cold laser has a great impact, helping people to live without symptoms for long periods of time.
The approach is the treat the Gall Bladder and pancreas, as well as the main nerves supplying the affected area. When light is then applied to the affected area the body is ready to start healing the issue.
