Far Infrared Irradiation for Management and Treating of Parkinson's Disease (PD)
This trial is active, not recruiting.
|Treatment||far infrared radiation (5μm to 20μm wavelength)|
|Sponsor||GAAD Medical Research Institute Inc.|
|Start date||May 2008|
|End date||May 2010|
|Trial size||10 participants|
|Trial identifier||NCT00674895, GAAD-PD-CTP1|
Parkinson's disease (PD) is a degenerative disorder of the central nervous system that often impairs the sufferer's motor skills and speech. This study will investigate the use of far infrared radiation to manage, control and treat PD.
|Endpoint classification||efficacy study|
|Intervention model||single group assignment|
Cure for PD
time frame: 2 years
Rehabilitation of PD Patients
time frame: 2 Years
Male or female participants of any age.
Inclusion Criteria: - People with Parkinson's Disease Exclusion Criteria: - None
|Official title||Phase 1 Study to Determine the Efficacy of Using Far Infrared Radiation for Control and Treatment of Parkinson's Disease.|

|Description||Parkinson's disease belongs to a group of conditions called movement disorders. It is characterized by muscle rigidity, tremor, a slowing of physical movement and, in extreme cases, a loss of physical movement. The primary symptoms are the results of decreased stimulation of the motor cortex by the basal ganglia, normally caused by the insufficient formation and action of dopamine, which is produced in the dopaminergic neurons of the brain. PD is both chronic and progressive. Observations from our research studies indicate that, far infrared rays provide energy to the body, improve the autonomic functions of the nervous system, restore the functions of the endocrine system, strengthen the immune system, improve blood circulation and increase the level of oxygen in the cells and promote the regeneration of muscle cells, nerves and brain cells. It is hereby postulated that irradiation using far infrared, with wavelength between 5 to 20 microns, of the central nervous system, the endocrine system and the whole body could prevent, control, manage or possibly lead to complete rehabilitation of people who have PD.|
