HOW LASER ENERGY HEALS Low Level Lasers re-energize sick and injured cellular membranes allowing nutrients to pass through.
Uses of Low Level Laser Therapy? Acute or chronic pain or inflammation Any acute or chronic injury May be effective on any disease or disorder Different bacteria, viruses and diseases respond to different wavelengths, frequencies, power densities, and other variables, many of which are incorporated into the lasers seen here
More LLLT Uses Reduce pain – cells produce their own endorphins Relax muscles Reduce inflammation by 75% Promote faster healing Increase bone regeneration Enhance the immune system Re-energize cellular membranes

Purpose: To measure the impact of Low Level Laser Therapy on changes in the Autonomic Nervous System
Research Study Evaluate changes in Stress Index and PNS/SNS Ratios, by measuring Heart Rate Variability (HRV).
Q-1000 Low Level Laser (2035, Inc.) 12 laser diode laser, 6 soliton waves, at wavelengths from nm. 3 preset modes and 4 programmable modes. Power per diode: <5mW. The total power output per 3 minute cycle: 3.9 joules. Lasers made from combination of Indium, Gallium, Aluminum and Phosphorus.
Safety The Q-1000 Laser is registered with the FDA as a Class 1 device, based on Underwriters Laboratory research. Class 1 lasers present minimal potential harm and are classified by the FDA as non-significant risk.
The Protocol 1. Establish baseline Stress Index and Stress Balance by measuring HRV. 2. Laser 4 proprioceptive stress points. 3. Re-test HRV
Stress Rx ( BK Specialties ) Software to assess Heart Rate Variability (HRV) through analysis of blood flow. Measures biofeedback reflecting bodys response to stress.
Heart Rate Variability Change in heart rate controlled by the ANS, regulated by the Sympathetic and Parasympathetic. HRV biofeedback - a reflection of the balance of the ANS, to assess bodys response to stress.
Autonomic Nervous System (ANS) R egulates 80% of the bodys organs and functions and prepares the bodys response to stress.
Stress Index Results 31% of people tested had a starting Stress Index outside of the optimum range. Stress Index improved by an average of 29.6% after lasering for this group.
Stress Index Results The higher the starting Stress Index, the greater the correction after lasering.
Stress Balance Results The average improvement in PNS/SNS ratio (for starting points >10% from balance of 1.0) was 28.2%
Conclusions Reduced Stress Levels Improved PNS/SNS Ratio
Future Directions Low Level Lasers Dentistry Patient Health
Future Studies Impact of LLLT on ANS vs. time Proprioceptive guides and the ANS.
