Intravenous Laser Photodynamic Therapy (PDT)

Photodynamic Therapy (PDT) is one of the most promising treatment approaches in modern medicine.

Using the laser technique, photosensible substances (photosensitizers) are “activated” deep within the body. When photosensitizers are exposed to a specific wavelength of light, they produce active oxygen radicals that can destroy targeted cells.

Each photosensitizer is activated by a light of a specific wavelength.  This wavelength determines how far the light can travel into the body. These photosensitizers are very specific in binding targeted malignant or other diseased or infectious cells within the body.

A photosensitizer is typically administered into the bloodstream intravenously and absorbed by cells all over the body, residing in cancer cells longer. The photosensitizer in the tumor absorbs the light and produces an active form of oxygen that destroys nearby cancer cells.

In addition to directly killing cancer cells, PDT appears to shrink or destroy tumors in two other ways.  The photosensitizer can damage blood vessels in the tumor, thereby preventing the cancer from receiving necessary nutrients. 

PDT also may activate the immune system to attack the tumor cells. 

PDT is also useful in treating bacterial, viral and parasitic infections.

The most commonly used photosensitizers are Riboflavin, Hypericin, Curcumin, Nano Icg, Methylene Blue, Poly MVA, DCA, Artesunate/Artemisinin, Vitamin C and Glutathione.  

PDT is exclusively offered at few places in the United States, one being Kare Health & Wellness. Treatments once unattainable by patients is now available close to home.

Broad Range Of Applications With
Clinically Proven Effects

The light used for PDT can come from a laser directed through fiber optic cables and delivered to areas inside the body. Intravenous Laser Therapy enables the application of laser light directly into the bloodstream by using a special catheter technology.   From outside the body it is very difficult to apply sufficient laser power into deep tissues due to the barrier function of the skin.  Weber Medical designed special fiber optic light guides (Weberneedle Lasercath) and cannulas that allow laser light to be brought directly into the bloodstream, interstitial compartments and joints. Using this new approach of intravenous, interstitial and intra articular laser therapy therapeutic results are improved significantly.  Also, green, blue and yellow lasers, which are typically absorbed at the skin surface can now deliver their cellular and anti-inflammatory effects in deep tissue layers. The laser light stimulates circulation of blood cells and stem cells.  

The Weberneedle Endo Laser for administering Intravenous Laser Therapy utilizes different colors of laser light: Red, Green, Blue, Yellow, Ultraviolet and Infrared.  Each color of light requires a specific photosensitizer and then produces different positive effects in the body through the bloodstream. Your total blood volume can be irradiated by a specific color in 16 minutes.  Various laboratory tests and clinical data show that the irradiation of blood cells can trigger a number of positive effects.

Colors of Care

Red Laser

Red Laser has energizing effects, increases ATP production, strengthens the immune system, increases cell activity, regenerates damaged tissue structures, improves blood viscosity and circulation, stimulates metabolism, relaxes muscles and calms nerves, reduces cholesterol levels.

Green Laser

Green Laser increases oxygen uptake and delivery to the whole body, improves the function and behavior of red blood cells, reduces pain caused by inflammation and swelling, reduces lactic acid, activates tissue repair, improves glucose metabolism, and improves circulation.

Blue Laser

Blue Laser improves microcirculation by Nitrogen Oxide release, increases immune function and stem cell production, has strong anti-inflammatory and antibacterial effects, accelerates wound healing, supports pain relief, has anti-aging effects  such as lengthening telomeres and increasing biogenesis of mitochondria, reduces cholesterol and triglyceride levels

Yellow Laser

Yellow Laser has antidepressant effects by enhancement of vitamin D and serotonin production, improves anxiety and panic attacks, is effective against chronic (viral) infections, has strong antibacterial effects, aids in detoxification, has a positive influence on hormones and metabolism.

UV Laser

Ultraviolet Laser improves the overall immune function, stops replication and destroys fungi, viruses, and bacteria, improves circulation, increases oxygen absorption into body tissues, and improves the body’s to detoxify and remove toxins.

Infrared Laser

Infrared laser allows the low-level light to gain the maximum tissue penetration. By using Infrared in conjunction with other laser colors, significantly better results are achieved.

Exposure time of intravenous laser therapy is generally 60-90 minutes. A course of ten treatments is recommended.  Treatments are usually administered 2-3 times per week but can be done daily if needed.  

Areas of application for PTD include:

  • Viral/bacterial/parasitic infections
  • Cancer, chronic pain
  • Cardiovascular diseases
  • Neurodegenerative diseases (MS, Parkinsons, Dementia)
  • Tinnitus
  • Depression/anxiety
  • Allergies
  • Autoimmune disorders
  • Diabetes Mellitus
  • Chronic fatigue
  • Lyme disease
  • Sports performance.
