In 2019 Dr. Suzan Syed and I conducted a small study on patients diagnosed with cognitive decline in 2019-2020. With dementia affecting 5.7 million Americans and over 50 million people globally, we wanted to know first hand if our light therapy could help. This was a small study with patients who had a definitive diagnosis of Dementia from their neurologist. Read the full study here.
Patients were evaluated with the F-Scan to determine frequencies that were sensitive. The frequency found most sensitive was then programmed into a function generator. The function generator was set to input frequency information (sinusoidal waveform, 5V peak-peak) into the Bales Photonics Firefly Clinic Pro using 37,700 mW intensity. Subjects received 10 treatments for 10 minutes over the course of 4 weeks with a minimum of 2 treatments per week using their unique frequency.
Nine subjects completed the pilot study. The average Mini-Cog score improved by 7% from the pre-trial to the post-trial exams. Scores improved by another 26% from the post-trial exam to the post washout exam. The overall average Mini-Cog score improved by 35%.
