Intranasal Light Therapy – a personal-use healing technology with surprising promises
Monday, April 23, 2012 from 5:30 PM to 8:30 PM (EDT)
Homeostasis is a much sought after medical outcome because a person this state can naturally overcome many chronic diseases and disorders. Professor Timon Liu, a leading expert in Intranasal Light Therapy has been especially invited from China to present the case for this simple self-administered technology to be seriously considered as a safe and effective method to deliver this desired medical outcome.
Although North America is unfamiliar with this medical technology, Chinese scientists have already invested many years into investigating its potential. Attendees of this event will learn from Professor Liu on how Intranasal Light Therapy works, why it works, and his knowledge of its clinical applications.
The objective of this event is not only to educate attendees on the technology. Ontario-based MedicLights Research, advised by MaRS, have already independently developed the devices that can be made available to practitioners and researchers who are interested to collaborate with Professor Liu to investigate the outcomes on their selected medical indications. These may include conditions related to the immune, circulatory, endocrine and autonomic nervous system.
This special event is from 5.30 pm to 8.30 pm, Monday, 23rd April 2012, at the MaRS main auditorium, 101 College Street, Toronto.
