Curing migraine pain with LED lights

HYPER EXTENDED FOOT AND A FRACTURED VERTEBRAE >>> INJECTIONS, NERVE BLOCKERS, NATURAL REMEDIES, WHEN NONE OF THIS WORKS FOR PEOPLE SUFFERING FROM CHRONIC MIGRAINES, MANY ARE WILLING TO TRY JUST ABOUT ANYTHING FOR RELIEF

RESEARCHERS HAVE FOUND A NEW WAY TO END THE PAIN USING LED LIGHTS AS CHANNEL 2 HEALTH REPORTER HALEY HERNANDEZ SHOWS EXPOSURE TO GREEN LIGHT COULD BE THE ANSWER TO ELIMINATING MIGRAINES AND FIBROMYALGIA PAIN

>> Reporter: DEBBIE'S MIGRAINES WERE DEBILITATING >> T WAS ONE RIGHT AFTER ANOTHER THERE WAS NO BREAK IN BETWEEN >> Reporter: SHE WAS DEPRESSED AND SICK, UNABLE TO GET OUT OF BED SOME DAYS THEN SHE HEARD ABOUT HER PAIN DOCTOR'S TRIAL

PARTICIPANTS SCARED AT LED — STARED AT LEDE GREEN LIGHTS ONE TO TWO HOURS ON DAY FOR 10 WEEKS >> VERY SKEPTICAL BECAUSE IT IS SO SIMPLE AND IT DOESN'T MAKE ANY SENSE THAT JUST SOME LIGHT CAN FIX A PROBLEM THAT MODERN MEDICINE CAN'T EVEN ADDRESS AND IT WORKED

>> REGARDLESS OF THE MECHANISM T OUTCOME IS WHAT MATTERS AND PEOPLE ARE BOTH FEELING BETTER AND THEIR PAIN IS GETTING BETTER >> Reporter: THE DOCTORS ARE TRYING TO FIGURE OUT WHY IT WORKED ON RATS, SO THEY RAN A STUDY USING GREEN LIGHTS ON EIGHT PEOPLE, WHITE ON FIVE MORE THE GREEN LIGHT GROUP SAID THEIR PAIN FROM MIGRAINE AND FIBROMYALGIA DROPPED 40 TO 50% IT COULD BE PARTLY PSYCHOLOGICAL

>> BUT IT ALSO — AT A CHEMICAL AND NEUROCHEMICAL LEVEL, IT DOES SOMETHING TO TUNE THE SYSTEM SO ESSENTIALLY WHAT IT'S DOING IS INCREASING YOUR HAPPY HORMONES, YOUR LEVEL OF INDODGENUS OPIOIDS >> THE PEOPLE IN THE GREEN GROUP REFUSED TO RETURN THE GREEN LIGHT AND THEY WANTED TO KEEP IT SO WE LET THEM KEEP IT

>> Reporter: THAT INCLUDES DEBBIE WHO USES THE LIGHTS 15 MINUTES THREE TIMES A WEEK AND HAS STOPPED TAKING PAIN MEDS THE DOCTORS HOPE TO GET GRANTS SO THEY CAN EXPAND THE STUDY THEY ALSO CAUTION PEOPLE NOT TO
