Additional Information

Official title Phase 1 Study to Determine the Efficacy of Using Far Infrared Radiation for the Treatment of Alzheimer's Disease.
Principal investigator Ken Nedd, M.D.
Description Alzheimer's destroys brain cells, causing problems with memory, thinking and behaviour severe enough to affect work, lifelong hobbies or social life. Alzheimer's gets worse over time and it is fatal. Alzheimer's, which has no current cure, is the most common form of dementia. It is hereby postulated that far infrared radiation of the central nervous and endocrine systems will help with the management of the disease and possibly cure the disease.
