    My son has decided to get cold laser therapy to help him stop smoking. I have never heard of this before, but from what he tells me and what I have read online it similar to acupuncture but instead of needles a laser light is used.

    Has anyone out there tried cold laser therapy? Was it successful?

      I too have never heard of it, but it would solve a problem for me.  I have been advised by several people, including my doctor, that acupuncture would benefit me.  However, as I have a phobia of needles, this would not be possible.  I have just checked it out though, and can only find information about it being applied to detmatological conditions.

        I searched Google using the term: laser in ear to stop smoking

        Some of the sites listed are built purely for AdSense, but there is one or two that have information including prices and clinic locations. For example http://www.omegalaser.net/ but it looks like they only operate in Canada.

    I spent several thousand dollars on this hoping to alleviate my wife's pain.

    No help at ll.

      Perhaps it’s the skeptic in me, but I kind of expected that kind of response.

        I did a lot of research and it looked possible.  My wife has a missable life so I took a chance.  I do not regret trying.  I've spent much more trying to help her - heck, we spent more than that on our last bed.  No help there either.

          PC, I have no idea what your wife's problem is or what bed you have, but:

          A couple of years ago I broke 2 ribs.  Sleep on our very firm foam mattress was impossible - I was surviving on about 2 hours a night instead of the 8 I need.

          We bought a 2" memory foam mattress topper and I got instant relief.  Still didn't get 8 hours, but 6 or 7 made a tremendous difference.  You can get those things from 1 1/2" to 4" and in different densities.  They are not particularly expensive.

          Just a thought...

            I have to laugh because I have a hub about this.

            We've spent more money on mattresses, toppers, pads and I don't know what else than some people earn in a year.  None of it has ever helped her.  She has joint inflammation.  Her doctors say that she never really heals - any injury always remains inflamed and just doesn't  go away. 

            It's horrible and nothing has ever helped.  As I said, I researched ths laser stuf.  It was worth a hot, but no luck.

              You ever changed what she eats to eliminate foods that trigger inflammatory responses in the body?

                Yes - deflame diet and more.  Really, we've been working on this for multiple decades.  We've wasted many, many thousands of dollars, tried many silly and unsilly things and nothing works.  I hate it.

                However, I don't want to discourage anyone about this laser stuff.  My research indicated it was worth a shot and I do not regret it.  It might be just placebo that is helping people, but people do say they have been helped.

              smile  Funny - I wrote one of mattress toppers as well.  I was so impressed with the one we got and what it did for my ribs I just had to.

              sad  I figured you had probably tried these, but you never know so mentioned it anyway.  It never hurts to pass on a tidbit of information that just might help someone else - at worst it costs you and I both a few seconds of time.

                Ayup.  I just find it funny because our friends and relatives have benefited greatly from our mattress shuffling, but it's never helped her at all.  Ever optimistic, we keep trying..

                But yes, it never hurts to mention, though after decades of failure, it's not likely we'll hear anything new.  However, other people read these forums too, so someone else might be helped.  Just because something doesn't help one person doesn't mean it won't help someone else.

    I don't know about smoking but I've had some cold laser treatments on my knee from my chiropractor and it's helped that.  And it didn't cost anything extra.
