Laser Acupuncture for RP Treatment

This is me undergoing my daily acu-laser treatment. (I had no idea I look so sci-fi.) I asked Dr. Rosenfarb if he could provide an overview of how his laser acupuncture treatment works. Here’s what he had to say.

 Laser Acupuncture works by using photo-biomodulation (laser-light impulses) at specific acupuncture points around the body. It is believed that the body’s organ meridians in the Chinese Meridians exist at a light frequency. We use Acu-laser or “light needle” as a non-invasive way to stimulate certain acupuncture points that may benefit vision and improve function.

 My general theory is that acupuncture works more on the Qi (energy) and Blood (circulation) level.  Acupuncture opens the blockages and increases the flow of Qi and Blood to the eyes (branch symptom) and is also used to correct/support the underlying cause (root issue). Acupuncture does not add anything or take away from the body, it just helps regulate function. If the eyes receive oxygen, nutrients, fluids, glucose for fuel, and fats for nerve regeneration, the vision will stabilize and may improve.  

Laser therapy actually puts photon (light) energy into the body. This light energy is absorbed by the cells and stimulates the mitochondia in the cells to produce more ATP-energy and increase function. Mounting research suggests that cellular mitochondrial dysfunction is a key factor in the neuro-degenerative process (brain and eye). The laser treatment “doses” the cells with energy—like when you charge your cell phone battery. Due to the nature of RP, the eyes have genetic “weak batteries” which need regular recharging to keep them functional. We recommend periodic recharge using acu-laser treatment to keep the nerve cells fully charged.  This will help optimize eye health and function.

 Dr. Rosenfarb told me he uses laser acupuncture  in cases where patients don’t respond to traditional acupuncture, have experienced severe vision loss (me), and those who are uncomfortable with the needles. He stresses that when it comes to laser acupuncture, getting it just right is KEY. Too little “dosing” (power + time), and you won’t get a result. And he says overdosing can actually cause a negative response. He said he developed his treatment method in collaboration with European doctors who have done extensive research on laser therapy for eyes and is currently the only practitioner using it to treat eye diseases.

    Ingrid, I am so excited and nervous for you all at the same time. I’ve been doing quite a bit of research on Dr. Rosenfarb and I will have to say I am impressed with his work. I know this may seem awkward at lest for me, is there any way you could ask the receptionist to forward me additional information strictly with RP and Ushers? I would love to even get a phone call from them and discuss financial expectations. And I would love to hear from you as well. Shoot me an email and I will send you my cell number. I’m already in your emails. Good luck and remember to breathe in the moments as your body adjust through the healings of your eyes.
