So I went to my chiro yesterday for an adjustment. While there, I was telling her I was finally diagnosed with lyme.

I usually would get tx with the erchonia laser for my lower back and neck which seems to have helped throughout my course of tx.

Anyway, she said there were settings on the machine for lyme patients and asked if I wanted to do it. I say, sure...why not?

So I did. But I'm not sure about the benefits of this and had trouble finding info. Anyone have any experience with this?

I think it'll be a good idea to get back into going to the chiro again. I started with one last yr but i quit because she wasnt helping. I hope your tx works well. Never heard of the type treatment you mentioned, but Im sure its gotta be helpful.

look up threads for either the bionic 880 or PE1. The erchonia is cold laser and the bionic and PE1 are LEDs. The erchonia doesn't use the light wave lengths as the PE1 or 880. The 880 is totally 880 nm in the NIR which isn't visible to the human eye. The erchonia is for the most part IR or infrared which is visible. It is specifically used for tissue repair or regeneration. Nasa uses such technology for astronauts and is part of nasa's medical bag to keep the astronauts healthy.

Philly, the Erchonia effects on Lyme, Bart, Babs, EBV, Candida are AMAZING. My Tx initially began with abx, but a wonderful friend introduced me to the laser. I would pick it over abx any day.

There are herxes, but mine were not as severe as the abx and there are no side effects. There are immune boostind and detox settings also for the laser. Ultimately the decision is yours.

good luck

c3mom - you might find the pe1 or the 880 had a similar benefit.

Thanks lymie. I'll look into that. I had already paid for a package of tx for my back and neck problems related to injuries and right now we are concentrating on my back.

c3mom, thanks for the feedback! I only did it once at my last visit but I have an appt again tomorrow.
