Thank you for your post--I understand that medical professionals have pursued that profession with an interest in helping people.
My concern was that Dr. Nase made a categorical--and I might venture to say, vindictive--post regarding LED therapy.
I'm not a doctor, nor am I a scientist. I studied English literature and taught myself how to build my own array. But, as a writer, I've been told, over and over again, that when someone makes statments using the words, "all", "always", "any", "never", etc... that one should regard said statements with extreme skepticism.
I am only here to express qualified statements regarding my anecdotal experiences with LLLT. When someone posts a categorical, contrarian, and patently false sentiment, please do not hold it against me for responding.
I only want to help fellow rosaceans that may be uninsured, spending hundreds--if not thousands--of dollars a year for medical care.
It's incredibly frustrating when you're 21 years old and you get your vitality and ability to be a functioning adult ripped away from you. And then you keep trying to help yourself with available treatments and a parade of dermatologists, doctors, and laser physicians.
And, say, 3 years into this process, when you're admitted to the Emergency Room with a core temperature of 84.6 degrees F, as you've been trying to stay cool in the air-conditioning and avoid a heat-response flush during several weeks of a US midwestern summer, and then you spend 7 days in the internal medicine ward of a US private hospital,w with your doctors saying you really shouldn't be alive--all the while, again, still uninsured--and end up costing yourself 10,000 USD, and after this, you still get no help from laser doctors and fall back AGAIN into that same state trying to deal with this disease....
I could go on with this story. PM me if you're interested.
What I will not do is allow falsehoods to go as unchallenged facts because a poster here has a "Dr." in front of their name. I'm not accusing you of anything; you've been quite helpful in defining your experience with patients and I share your honest interest in finding where red light therapy stops being helpful and begins to harm rosaceans.
When I have found something that anyone can do, for a few hundred dollars, and it will last them several years--I'm not going to shut up about that. And I won't be shut up by anyone. That's all.
Again, thank you for your posts. I very much appreciate your clarifications.
