In this part I would like to share some ideas about transcranial low level laser (TLLLT) application as it is a promising option for brains suffering from stroke, Parkinson´s, Alzheimer´s, migraine, vertigo, tinnitus, chronic inflammation like Lyme or other cerebral disorders.

Infrared light passes readily through scalp and skull and a few % of incident power density can arrive at the cortical (brain) surface. As mentioned before the primary photoreceptors for red and infrared light are mitochondria (power stations of the cell), and it should be noted that cortical neurons are exceptionally rich in mitochondria. Although the human brain comprises only 2 % of total body weight, it consumes 20% of total body oxygen consumption, and 25 % of total body glucose utilization.

One of the main mechanisms of action of TLLLT in the brain is to prevent neurons from dying, when they have been subjected to some sort of hypoxic, traumatic or toxic insult.

The application of TLLLT works with a helmet that looks similar to a cycle race helmet that is loaded with 360 infrared diodes. Application time is 30 minutes. Besides increased neuron plasticity, enhanced microcirculation, increased ATP (the fuel cells run on ) and number of mitochondria there is also a welcomed side effect (the only side effect we know of): hair growth is activated.
