<p>(<a href=NewsUSA) – When Americans feel a pain coming on -; whether from a headache, backache or sore muscle -; they reach for their medicine cabinets. And while popping a pain pill on occasion probably won’t cause lasting harm, overuse of even over-the-counter drugs can prove harmful.

Most people think nothing of taking painkillers like Advil, Aleve, Ibuprofen, Motrin and aspirin. But these common pills belong to a class of drugs called Non-Steroidal Anti-Inflammatory Drugs (NSAIDs), which are known to cause gastric ulcers, cardiovascular problems, gastrointestinal bleeding, and liver and kidney damage.

Acetaminophen, or Tylenol, can damage the liver, especially in those who drink alcohol on a regular basis. In fact, according to the Food and Drug Administration, Osteoarthritis” liver toxicity from acetaminophen poisoning is the most common cause of acute liver failure in the United States.

Taking more than the recommended dosage increases the risk of side effects, as does taking the drugs over a long period of time, Those managing chronic pain with NSAIDs or acetaminophen prove especially susceptible to damage.

Osteoarthritis patients often use over-the-counter or prescription painkillers to relieve pain and inflammation. But in doing so, they risk developing new health problems, some of which may prove life-threatening.

But there are other ways to treat pain. For example, the FDA has recently approved an at-home low-level laser device, the QLaser, for treating osteoarthritis in the hands. Low-level lasers have also been approved for treating carpal tunnel syndrome and myofascial shoulder pain.

Low-level laser therapy uses laser light to ease pain by stimulating endorphins, reduce inflammation and encourage cell regeneration. Long used by professional athletes and the British military, low-level laser therapy is non-invasive and produces no known side effects.

The low-level lasers approved by the FDA are completely safe. “Laser light is as gentle as the kiss of a butterfly,” Dr. Larry Lytle, in his book “Universal Healer, Osteoarthritis,” “but from a healing perspective, it is quite possibly more effective than drugs or surgery.”

Medicine Shifts Toward Laser Technology

<p>(<a href=NewsUSA) – If you are old enough, you may remember seeing science fiction comic books that used lasers to zap the enemy. It’s not unusual that ideas so noted and seemingly far-fetched become realities. We are more familiar with the military’s laser-guided missiles and LASIK than we are with low-level lasers in the form of healing light. But healing lasers are at our doorstep.

Our bodies are dependent on the health of our cells. In fact, studies show that only a 2 percent loss of cellular water can decrease our energy levels by as much as 20 percent. The health of our cells is dependent on energy. If they are exposed to excessive energy, they will be fatally damaged, and the body will die. On the other hand, if the cells receive insufficient energy, they will weaken and become sick or diseased.

Over the years, scientists and doctors have been fine-tuning low-level lasers to increase the body’s adenosine triphosphate (ATP) for cellular energy, resulting in exactly the right kind and amount of energy. What they have discovered is that lasers help in more ways than just boosting energy.

“What we have found is that low-level lasers stimulate the body to release pain-relieving endorphins, help the body heal damaged DNA and scar tissue and even help repolarize cell membranes for better nutrient absorption,” said Dr. Larry Lytle, author of the book “Universal Healer: Book I Osteoarthritis.” and developer of the QLaser.

Lytle’s QLaser was recently cleared by the FDA for over-the-counter sale and use in treating osteoarthritis in the hands. The Q1000 is a Class I laser device that has been classified by the FDA as a non-significant risk device as related to eye injuries, yet it helps the body release endorphins reduce inflammation, increase circulation, heal damaged cell membranes and boost cells’ energy levels, resulting in less pain and more healing. Keeping a personal laser, like the QLaser, at home can help patients address their osteoarthritis without turning to costly medical treatments.

FDA Approves Low-Level Laser for Osteoarthritis

<p>(<a href=NewsUSA) – Osteoarthritis, a degenerative disease in which joint cartilage wears away over time, proves a common problem. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), approximately one-third of American adults suffer from chronic arthritis.

The pain of osteoarthritis not only affects Americans’ joints, but also their wallets. Thirty-three percent of American workers report that arthritis interferes with their ability to perform their job. In 2007, treating arthritis cost $128 billion — $81 billion in direct expenses, like medical costs, and another $47 billion in lost wages and other indirect costs.

Osteoarthritis typically affects older adults, but it does not affect every senior citizen. It can strike any animal with a bony skeleton, causing pain and disability.

“No one needs to describe that the pain comes and goes, prevents sleep, makes walking difficult, causes you to drop or spill things, and renders you unable to sign your name or write,” writes Dr. Larry Lytle in his book, “Universal Healer: Book I Osteoarthritis.” “In short, it is the most common form of disability.”

Osteoarthritis cannot currently be cured, but effective treatments can improve the quality of life of millions of people. To many people, it comes as exciting news that the FDA has recently approved a low-level laser treatment, the QLaser, for treating osteoarthritis in the hands.

The Q1000 is a Class I laser device that has been classified by the FDA as a non-significant risk device as related to eye injuries, yet helps the body release endorphins (natural painkillers) reduce inflammation, increase circulation, help heal damaged cell membranes and boost cells’ energy levels, resulting in less pain and more healing. Keeping a personal laser, like the QLaser, at home can help patients address their osteoarthritis without turning to costly medical treatments.
