Review… Youve learned that the relationship between universal energy and human energy, AND the way that you think, affects everything you do!
Understanding Low Level Laser Therapy
In this section you will learn about BASIC LASER PHYSICS
Light Amplification by Stimulated Emission of Radiation
Laser History Planck's defined Quantum Mechanics Einstein photo effect called Photon First Laser (Ruby) – Maiman First CO2 Laser – Patel First surgical Use – W. Yahr First use in Oral Surgery – G. Jako First Laser Diode - Japanese
Laser Terminology Photons * Amplitude Coherence * Phase Wavelength * Interference Frequency * Constructive Power Density Interference Joules * Destructive Soliton Wave Interference
PHOTONS Are small packets of light energy in the form of a wave element with a defined wavelength & a frequency related to that wavelength
Low Level Lasers Most low level lasers today use semi-conductor diodes.
COHERENCE Means the photons are well-ordered or are in synchronicity
Laser Energy Coherent Monochromatic
WAVE Are encoders & carriers of information When they overlap, the combined amplitude is greater than each individual wave
PHASE Two waves are peaking and troughing at the same time even though they have different frequencies or amplitudes
INTERFERENCE When two waves are in phase & overlap each other
CONSTRUCTIVE INTERFERENCE When the combined amplitude of waves is greater than individual amplitude, the signal gets stronger.
DESTRUCTIVE INTERFERENCE When one wave is peaking & the other is troughing, they cancel each other out
Wavelength = Color Blue Light Red Light Wavelength
- - Cosmic Rays - - Gamma Rays - - X-Rays - - Ultraviolet - - Visible Light - - Infrared - - Microwaves - - Radio waves Wavelength In Millimeters Lasers are measured in Nanometers ,000
FREQUENCY Pulse Frequency or Number of pulses per second measured in Hertz and is Altered by movement
Frequency One way frequency works is by Canceling Waves ½ cycle off
How Energy Heals Frequency is the key Canceling waves Ability to penetrate Jack Schwartz Yogi
Best Laser Results STIMULATE Nerves, bone, joints, tendons, cartilage & ligaments RESONATE Muscles, organs, glands Acupoint Therapy with the right laser
Review… In this section you have learned some laser physics, and the basic terminology like Photons, Coherence, Wavelength, Power Density, Joules and Soliton Waves.
Proprioception to the Brain
In this section, you will learn about the importance of controlling the proprioceptive feedback mechanism to the brain and about the embryology of brain development.
Proprioception Receiving stimulations within tissues of the body
Proprioception Visual Sensory Motor Integrates incoming stimuli and outgoing responses
Proprioception Feedback from the oral area that regulates significant brain functions
Proprioception Affects Over 50% of body functions Blood supply to the brain Low level electrical feedback to the brain
Dental Distress Syndrome (DDS ) Affects over 75% of the people in this room!
Disease & Stress Stress, particularly stress of dental origin, pervades mans life in health and disease. Medicine would benefit by a closer alliance between members of the medical and dental professions. Hans Selye, MD, Ph.D
Harvard Study Highest morbidity risk factor was loss of teeth
Japanese Studies Dr. Koichi Miura, MD 75% Improvement in 75 of 100 medical parameters
Air Force Study WWII Pilots who received immediate dentures lived an average of 10 years less than those who kept their own teeth
Embryology Ectodermal thickening Neural tubeNeural crest Central nervous system Peripheral nervous system (4 weeks) OVUM
Neural Tube Neural Crest Brain & Spinal cord Central Nervous System ½ of master pituitary Thalamus & hypothalamus Outgrowths of forebrain All sensory Receptors Peripheral Nervous System ½ of master pituitary All other hormonal glands Midnose Upper lip Premaxilla Four maxillary incisors Balance of the dental system, except tooth enamel
Neural CREST Cell Function
Neural TUBE Cell Function
Proprioception Thalamus & Cerebral Cortex
Almost half of the sensory and motor aspects of the brain are devoted to the dental area. The Cerebral Cortex of Man by Penfield & Rasmussen Published 1950 by Macmillan Co
Mandibular nerve has fibers connecting with the Vagus Nerve.
Mandibular Function 68 Pairs of muscles above and below the mandible determine head, cervical, shoulder, and jaw posturization The 136 muscles must function at their endowed contracting and relaxing lengths and be in reciprocal balance
Proprioception Controls the sympathetic nervous system Controls the parasympathetic nervous system
Autonomic Nervous System Regulates organ function Coordinates sympathetic and parasympathetic nervous systems
Autonomic Nervous System Stimulation of sympathetic system: Increases stress Raises blood pressure Increases heart rate Speeds breathing rate Decreases glandular, stomach & intestinal function
Autonomic Nervous System Stimulation of parasympathetic: Reduces stress Lowers blood pressure Decreases heart rate Slows breathing rate Increases glandular, stomach & intestinal function Builds up body reserves
Proprioceptive Guides Restores lost posterior support Releases tight TMD muscles Restores blood to brain Restores facial symmetry Controls clicking & TMD pain Helps control headaches Enhances endocrine system Increases energy levels
Miracle Bite Tabs

Easy Adjust Proprioceptive Guide
Easy Adjust Proprioceptive Guides combined with Low Level Laser Therapy improve health dramatically
Low Level Laser Therapy & Proprioceptive Guides are Synergistic
Review… Youve learned about proprioception, embryology, and how they affect the balance of the sympathetic and parasympathetic nervous systems
Low Level Laser Safety & Research
FDA Laser Classification Class I Class II Class IIIa Class IIIb Class IV
FDA Approval Low level lasers have been approved for carpal tunnel, cervical neck pain, low back pain, joint pain, muscle pain, & wound healing. NASA is using technical light therapy for medical conditions in space
LEDs What about them?
Systemic Effect Laser Energy is: Accumulative Cascading
One of the Most Important Principles Low Level Lasers re-energize sick and injured cellular membranes allowing nutrients to pass through.

How to choose a Low Level Laser
In this section, you will learn what features to look for in a Low Level Laser
Choosing a laser Look for: State of the Art Technology Handheld - Easy to use Portable & rechargeable Multiple frequencies Multiple wavelengths FDA Registration - Totally safe Customer Service & Tech Support
Introducing Low Level Lasers from 2035, Inc.
2035, Inc. Lasers are SAFE! Studies done by Underwriters Laboratories (UL) have classified the Q100 & Q1000 as Class I – Non-Significant Risk medical lasers
Low Level Lasers, in general, are SAFE! No reported side effects in over 2000 studies on LLLT LLLT wavelengths are well above the ionizing electromagnetic radiation (320nm and less) that may be harmful LLLT output powers are much lower than the high powered, collimated lasers that can burn and/or injure the eye

In this section you will learn about the uses of Low Level Lasers and actual results.
Uses of Low Level Lasers? Better answered by asking What CANT Low Level Lasers be used for? Answer: Nothing!
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
