It's a fascinating combination of phototherapy and medical science: LumeRX, a private firm, has developed technology that destroys the bacteria that cause stomach ulcers by using specific wavelengths of light.
To accomplish this result, a light wand is inserted into the patient's stomach with a small incision. Blue light is pumped through the light wand, illuminating the stomach and, ultimately, killing the H. pylori bacteria (the ones that cause stomach ulcers).
It's a perfect example of how vibrational medicine represents the future of healing. Rather than using toxic chemicals and pharmaceuticals to kill the bacteria, these scientists are turning to something much safer: light. It's called phototherapy, and the number of potential applications for this technology are staggering. Light-based therapy can treat depression, heal broken bones, heal flesh wounds, invoke healthy sleep patterns, and even function as an appetite suppressant. Using it to kill bacteria is just one of many exciting applications of phototherapy.
Interestingly, modern medicine typically scoffs at phototherapy unless it's combined with some element of drugs or surgery. In this case, the light wand is inserted through the patient's skin, which involves a small surgical incision. It is that incision that makes the entire procedure "acceptable" to the institutions of western medicine. Without the incision, they'd be calling this hocus pocus.
Now here's the really exciting part about all this: the procedure can be accomplished without an incision, too. How? By simply swallowing a pill-shaped light emitting device (LED) that emits wavelengths of light inside your digestive tract. Unfortunately, no such products currently exist. If you hear of one, let me know. Technically, the concept is quite feasible, and it could help heal all sorts of digestive tract disorders, perhaps even Chrohn's disease or irritable bowel syndrome.
