Photobiomodulation Therapy (PBM) is available for Cancer Patients at LifeWell MD wellness Centers in the Palm Beaches

Photobiomodulation (PMB) therapy is giving serious hope to the 15.5 million cancer survivors in the USA and also those who will be diagnosed with cancer this year (estimated at 1.8 million).

PHOTOBIOMODULATION therapy has recently been recommended as the standard of care for preventing and treating the side effects of radiotherapy and chemotherapy.

There is so much HOPE for cancer patients and cancer survivors with PHOTOBIOMODULATION (PBM) therapy!

YOU CAN GET PHOTOBIOMODULATION THERAPY AT LIFEWELL MD WELLNESS CENTERS IN THE PALM BEACHES and PORT ST LUCIE!

Many of the current cancer treatments such as chemotherapy treatments and radiation treatments are severely  damaging to the patient’s body and certain complications can cause excruciating pain. Complications such as the patient developing oral mucositis (OM), which is when the patient develops painful ulcers and sores inside the mouth.

This often results in suspension of the cancer treatments in order for the patient to recover from the complications, thus reducing the effectiveness of the treatments.

According to the Centers for Disease Control, OM occurs in approximately 80% of patients receiving radiation therapy and nearly 40% of patients receiving chemotherapy.

OM is debilitating and excruciatingly painful often necessitating a feeding tube to prevent malnourishment if/when the patient can no longer swallow food.

It can lead to a downward spiral potentially causing depression and hopelessness in the patient.

In June 2019, the MASCC (Multinational Association of Supportive Care in Cancer) recommended PHOTOBIOMODULATION as the standard of care for preventing and treating the side effects of radiotherapy and chemotherapy.

Photobiomodulation (PBM) is a light therapy treatment (laser treatment for pain and inflammation) that reduces inflammation, promotes healing and helps repair the oral tissues. You can imagine how exciting this breakthrough is for the millions who are suffering with chronic illnesses!

Photobiomodulation (PBM) can help by:

  • Improving energy production in cells. 
  • Stimulating the cells’ mitochondria. 
  • Reducing free radicals that cause inflammation.
  • Reducing cell death.
  • Helping tissues heal and become healthier.
  • Repairing cells and restoring their function.
  • Potentially preventing some side effects of cancer treatments.

St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital is now using it on their pediatric cancer patients.
