Testimonial: Patricia Berry

A wonderful letter from one of Josh Crawford’s Fibromyalgia patients :-)

To whom it may concern,

Patricia BerryMy name is Patricia Berry. I am 39 years old as of present and was given the elusive diagnosis of Fibromyalgia when I was only 19 years of age. Over the years, I have developed many other chronic pain and auto-immune conditions, but believe that they may all stem from this distressingly obscure original diagnosis.

The origin of my condition is likely due to a severe care accident at age 13 combined with a head injury and emotional trauma. Suffice it say, I know pain intimately.

My search for health and wellness has lead me down many paths, encompassing numerous medical and natural modalities. None of which have offered me anything more than the slightest amount of relief.

Last fall I had become exceptionally ill and was almost unable to eat, losing weight rapidly and working less. By some grace, one of my customers suggested a new therapy at a place called Genoa Laser Therapy with a gentleman named Josh Crawford.

I now consider that day one of the greatest turning points of my life.

I have undergone 60 plus photobiomodulation treatments, and it has changed my life. The number one immediate and consistent benefit has been the lessening of my overall chronic body pain. My sleep has improved drastically; insomnia being a perpetually awful part of this disease. Another wonderful benefit has been an incredible uplift in my mindset and mood, increasing my capacity to cope with my health issues.

The list of therapies, medications, treatments, and specialists visits that I have undergone is too extensive to even mention. But more importantly, it is now redundant. The comprehensive manner in which the photobiomodulation Thor light therapy heals the body from a cellular level is by far the most advanced technique being utilized today. I believe that this technology will only flourish from here on, to the wonderful benefit of all those who suffer from so many conditions, but especially for those with the previously incurable Fibromyalgia.

Sincerely,
Patricia Berry

Course Testimonial: Dr. Kevin Hole

Dr Kevin Hole“Thank you for the recent Training Course conducted in Sydney. This was the fourth training course that I have attended and I was not disappointed. James Carroll provided an engaging and interactive exposition of the principles and application of Photobiomodulation Therapy. It was a pleasing opportunity to reflect on the significant expansion in research and treatment protocol development. As one who has adopted this technology and uses THOR equipment, I do not hesitate to recommend the devices as serviceable and effective.”

NovoTHOR testimonial: CrossFit™ Athletes

Article Source: NovoTHOR Helps CrossFit™ Athletes

NovoTHOR Helps CrossFit™ Athletes“I started using NovoTHOR after months of knee irritation left me unable to squat. I also injured my neck and a Cat Scan indicated that my chronic neck pain was due to a slightly herniated disk in my cervical spine. For the next month, I started noticing that the excruciating pain I felt on a day to day basis that hindered me from doing certain movements in CrossFit, started declining the more I did NovoTHOR. Not only was I noticing a decrease in pain, but I noticed an overall improvement in my recovery from workouts, and I was starting to receive a deeper night’s sleep. Just about 6 weeks after starting NovoTHOR I hit a 10# PR on my Clean and Jerk at 315#, a number that I thought was untouchable due to my neck and knee pain. I’m now able to squat and do many other movements pain-free, just in time for the 2017 CrossFit Open.” – Tim Payne

“In 2012 I underwent shoulder surgery. When I returned to CrossFit, my shoulder was never 100 percent. I battled with pain on and off, while my performance slowly dropped. I sought NovoTHOR as a last resort before I decided if I wanted to undergo surgery again. Not only was I able to compete without restrictions within the first few weeks, but I achieved massive personal records on movements that were hindered by my shoulder pain. I added 7lbs to my snatch and 10lbs to my clean after years of 2-3lbs increases. NovoTHOR has made it possible for me to follow my passion of competing pain-free while reaping the benefits of increased performance.” — Jake Wade

Testimonial: Dr. Teresa Caprio

Dr. Teresa CaprioHello James,

I am the Cranial Osteopathic Physician that attended the August 2014 THOR Training in Boston and spoke with you quite a bit and my husband was the Naturopathic Physician there that day.

We now own 2 Thor Laser Lx2 Control Units with the 810nm infrared cluster probe and an LED probe. We have been using LLLT since September 2014 and we have had very remarkable results. Here are 2 case studies I would like to share.

• The first case was a woman in her early 60’s that came into my office on crutches in excruciating pain. She was crying out in pain so much that I sent her husband to the Pharmacy to pick up a prescription for Narcotic, which she took in my office while I was treating her with Osteopathic Manipulation.

It was a confirmed Herniated Nucleus Propulsus ( it’s called an intervertebral disc herniation by your treatment protocol). I treated her for 5 consecutive days (with the first IVD Herniation protocol) and on the Monday after these 5 treatments she was able to walk without assistance and was very close to being pain free.

In only 8 months of operation our customer base has risen to just over 600 patients, with 80% being referral service, and 20% being from our radio advertisements.

The story of how LLLT / Photobiomodulation was discovered

This is an extraordinary lecture. It is the story of how LLLT / Photobiomodulation was discovered, and because of the context in which it occurred you might also find it very moving, so get some tissues. It is an hour and 10 minutes long so get comfortable, maybe get some popcorn and a drink too. I will paste the email that Andrew Mester wrote into the comments section below.

Here is the email from Andrew Mester :

I had the privilege to give a keynote presentation at the most recent NAALT (North American Association of PhotobiomoduLation Therapy) meeting in February 5, 2017 in Coronado Island, San Diego. The title of paper was: “Invention of Laser Biostimulation”. My lecture is in Youtube now.

BACKGROUND:
Photo-medicine is an exciting new field in both scientific and clinical research all over the world and most recently in the USA. I learned in this interesting meeting that low intensity laser and LED light may stimulate, heal and regenerate neural tissue. Possible treatments are under investigation regarding traumatic events (stroke, traumatic brain injury and global ischemia), degenerative diseases (dementia, Alzheimer and Parkinson’s disease) and psychiatric disorders (PTSD, depression and anxiety). Most American studies are sponsored by the NIH (Michael Hamblin, PhD, Mass General Hospital) and by the VA (Margaret Naeser, PhD at Boston Jamaica Plain VA Hospital).

My association to this field is that my Father, Endre Mester, MD published first biostimulatory effect of the low power laser in 1967. My father, myself and my brother, Adam Mester, MD have published all the basic both research and clinical studies in the literature. We described the stimulatory effect primarily in wound healing and also the systemic effect of laser irradiation which is used now in all of the above mentioned research protocols.

My father is called in the literature the “Father of Photobiomodulation”.

The NAALT society established an Award named after my father: “Professor Endre Mester Award who made the seminal observation on the therapeutic benefits of low dose laser treatments”. The award recognizes a clinician or researcher who has made significant contributions to our understanding of light-biological tissue interactions and its therapeutic benefits, specifically in the area of Photobiomodulation Therapy. I was asked to present this award to Michael Hamblin, PhD from Massachusetts General Hospital, Harvard Medical School because of his lifetime achievements in Photobiomodulation.
