Photobiomodulation: The Secret Weapon to Speed Healing and Recovery at a Cellular Level

Photobiomodulation: The Secret Weapon to Speed Healing and Recovery at a Cellular Level

As a parent of a child with a neurodevelopmental disorder, I was often overwhelmed by the options for therapies, tests and protocols that we should consider. It can be unnerving and have us question which path we should take for our child. Part of the process of determining the right path is being educated on these options. Having trusted practitioners to explain these therapies is crucial to our understanding of what to do next.

Photobiomodulation–low level laser therapy is one of the options to consider (and definitely one of my favorites) but it often brings up concerns about safety and questions about how it can truly help with brain function. This is why I reached out to Dr. Brandon Crawford to interview him for the Autism, ADHD and Sensory Processing Disorder Summit. Dr. Crawford is an expert in the field and is able to explain the use of Low Level Lasers in neurodevelopmental disorders and how this might be a good fit for your child too.

I decided I wanted to share this interview from the summit with the My Child Will Thrive Podcast listeners which is why I’ve released the full interview from the summit on the podcast this week, too.

But as the years went by and I dove into the science surrounding my daughter’s health, I learned that she—and many children just like her—may have mitochondrial dysfunction. When I learned about the signs and symptoms of the condition, my radar went up.  Today, I'll share with you details about mitochondrial dysfunction—what you need to know to help your child.

What if someone told you that a particular type of food or food additive was causing your child’s symptoms?

Find out How Common Foods Can Trigger Your Child’s Symptoms and what you can do to identify what foods your child should avoid.
