Low Level Light Therapy helps diminish pain associated with digestion problems
Do you suffer from chronic constipation, acid reflux, irritable bowel syndrome, chronic colitis? If you do you are not alone; more than 50 million Americans suffer from some form of digestive disease/condition. The good news is Low Level Light Therapy can help alleviate your symptoms.
There are many contributing factors to constipation, including:
medications (such as narcotics, some anti-depressants)
- dietary factors (not enough fiber, not enough water, too much dairy)
- neurological conditions which affect the nerves in your digestive system (such as Parkinson’s Disease)
- other medical conditions (such as hypothyroid, diabetes, and even pregnancy)
Constipation is not only uncomfortable (bloating, painful stools), it also predisposes you to other colo-rectal disorders such as: hemorrhoids, colon polyps, and even colo-rectal cancer.
The symptoms of acid reflux include the following:
- difficulty swallowing
- feeling of fullness in the throat
- chronic throat irritations
- waking suddenly in the middle of the night with a choking sensation
- hoarse voice
- sour taste in your mouth
- pain in the throat and chest area
- bloating after meals
More than 25% of Americans suffer from acid reflux symptoms. When acid reflux persists for an extended period, it can lead to inflammation of the esophagus which can then lead to tissue damage.
Irritable Bowel Syndrome:
Irritable bowel syndrome is a condition in which the motility (functional movement) of your large intestine is impaired. The symptoms of irritable bowel syndrome include:
- bloating (abdominal distention)
- abdominal pain
- food intolerance
- diarrhea or constipation
- excessive gas
- mucus in stool
colitis is a condition of inflammation of the inner lining of the colon. Colitis may be caused by inflammatory bowel disease (such as ulcerative colitis), ischemia (not enough blood flow to the colon), auto-immune and allergic conditions. The symptoms of colitis include:
- abdominal pain
- diarrhea/bloody diarrhea
Digestive conditions are a serious medical concern. There are more than 20 million hospitalizations every year in America which relate to digestive diseases. If you have a digestive disease, or think you may have one, it is important that you are under the care of a physician or health care practitioner who is evaluating and treating you specifically for this condition.
Illuminant Being and Wellness may be an important part of your digestive wellness regimen. LLLT is utilized to diminish the inflammation in your digestive system (including your esophagus and colon), and to enhance blood flow to your digestive system. By doing this, LLLT helps diminish many of the symptoms which are associated with chronic digestive diseases.
