For many people who suffer from a severe addiction to drugs/and or alcohol, the usual treatment to cure an addiction is not always the best option – both physically and mentally. There is an alternative rehab treatment available if you are willing to try something new, Low-Level Laser Therapy.
Addiction often has an understated effect on your body. Not only cosmetically, but also internally. The energy you need to live your daily life, both physically and mentally is generated by core cells throughout your body.
As the energy in your body can be destroyed through an addiction to alcohol or drugs, your core cells need to relieve and re-strengthened. These core cells – also known as mitochondria – are sensitive and can get damaged over time. Low-Level Laser Therapy can add an extra layer of strength to your core cells, and accelerate healing. At Rehab Clinics Group, we now offer Low-Level Laser Therapy (LLLT) as part of our already extensive rehab program.
The Way Low-Level Laser Therapy Works
An LLLT session lasts about 45 minutes and is done by applying a cold laser on the area around your wrist. The laser operates in a non-thermal wavelength, which means there is zero risk of burning. Low-Level Laser Therapy is a safe treatment option, that has been proven effective through various studies worldwide.
Low-Level Laser Therapy: Boosting Energy and Mental Wellbeing to Battle Your Addiction
Many specialists can confirm that your physical and mental health are dependant on each other. A lack of energy could be due to sub-optimal mental health. LLLT can be useful in both cases. As the lasers transmit healing responses through your body, the effect of the lasers can lead to:
- Improved fitness levels
- Healthier sleeping patterns
- Improved mood
- Lower stress due to a positive effect on your nervous system
Once you have improved on these factors, you will be able to battle other mental health issues such as these. These mental well being related improvements can cause a domino effect, and help you battle mental health issues such as depression, anxiety and addiction.
Rehab is not always the most pleasant experience. often, many addicts suffer from withdrawal symptoms. LLLT will be able to make your rehab experience a lot easier, and thus more effective. As you start the session, there will be a release of endorphins in your body – which will lead to something a bit more interesting.
To add to that, the endorphins will also ease your dependence. You will feel a lot less cramps, suffer from less nausea, insomnia and restlessness.
Low-Level Laser Therapy: Physical Health
LLLT can also improve your physical wellbeing, as the improving mitochondria cells are the driving part of your immune system. For many addicts, your immune system could have been damaged by a long-standing addiction to heroin and alcohol for example.
Also, the blood vessels tend to expand through LLLT, which can reduce swelling throughout your body and can also help form a barrier for scar tissues. Low-level laser therapy is often used for sporting injuries – as it speeds up the natural healing process. Low-Level Laser Therapy can help people with other complications arising from addiction such as:
- Bowel Disorders
- Cardiovascular diseases
- Immune system diseases such as Rheumatoid arthritis
- Alcohol-related liver diseases.
