Diabetes is a chronic metabolic disorder, and one of the symptoms of such, is a reduced ability to heal. Over time, less oxygen is supplied to parts of the body, and various aspects of that area can suffer. As the metabolic disorder continues, sores may develop on areas such as our feet. If these sores are not attended to properly, they may develop into ulcers or infections of tissue and/or bone.
Luckily, we are able to supplement our cell’s energy, with red light. Although there are several other important factors to keep in mind while treating, such as proper footwear, proper diet, exercise, lifestyle etc, there is a great chance that supplementing our cell’s energy will help us move forward.
So not only can red light help our body process and remove toxins in general, which may be able to alleviate some of our diabetes symptoms, but it may be able to provide direct aid to wounds in general, including diabetic related issues.
Although it is always suggested that any new medical or health treatments should be discussed with a doctor, it’s worth repeating this for anyone with diabetes.
