Intravenous and Topical Low Level Laser Therapy

Kristy Fassler, ND is pleased to offer a therapy that is new to the US in recent years. We have acquired the Weber Laser System from Germany as an intravenous and topical low level laser therapy to assist with treatment of chronic pain, fatigue, infections and inflammation.

These are some of the healing benefits of intravenous low level laser therapy:

  • Stimulation of the immune system

  • Stimulation of cellular mitochondria for cellular regeneration and improved energy

  • Healing of inflammation and pain

  • Promotion of sleep, hormone balance, healthy blood vessels

  • Treatment of infections

  • Assists with the destruction of pathogens, including viruses, bacteria, and other microbes. Photosensitizers are special substances (nontoxic) which bind specifically to pathogens. They do NOT bind to healthy cells. The pathogens are irradiated with laser light of a specific wavelength to activate the photosensitizer causing the photodynamic reaction with cellular oxygen of killing the pathogen.*

*These statements have not been evaluated by the Food and Drug Administration. This therapy is not intended to diagnose, treat, cure, or prevent any disease. It is an adjunctive therapy along with other therapies your doctor may prescribe.

As with all intravenous applications, there is some localized trauma to the blood vessel which typically heals within 24 hours. Also to be noted, when infections are killed by any anti-microbial therapy, there can be a temporary worsening of symptoms due to the die off of infection, also known as the “Herxheimer reaction”.  

Currently, we do not recommend this therapy intravenously for patients taking blood thinning medications.

“Photobiomodulation has made, and is continuing to make, major progress in obtaining recognition from authorities in medical schools, scholarly journals, the popular press and media, medical practitioners, therapists and other bodies concerned with biomedical science”
