Therapy System This state-of-the-art system has been proven effective
with all breeds of horses. The technology has been used on some of
the world's most elite equine athletes and is also perfect for any
individual's trusted trail horse. The "Equine Light" is
very user friendly and is the most effective equine therapy system
on the market today. Not one to re-invent the wheel, please visit
Body Balance - they have a very detailed site not only on the
Equine System but also LED Lights. We are not partners with Infinite
Body Balance, just wanted to share their site as it is packed with
Carol using our LED Scanning Unit on Shooter a Certified Therapy
Horse. Shooter is wearing our LED Happy Hat during his first experience
with LED Light Therapy. This session was conducted during the Purple
Cow Festival in Port Orange, FL - there were many adults, children,
alpacas, birds of prey in the area...because of the LED Happy Hat
Shooter remained calm and was enjoying life.
our little darling, and thanks to the lights Avie
is still an important part of our family
this is his story.
We raise English
Angora rabbits for their fiber
you know those really, really
soft sweaters and socks, yep, they are made from rabbit fur. We
had just ventured into the rabbit world and had our first successful
breeding (okay, that isn't saying so much since they are rabbits
and well rabbits
breed). We had a litter of 10 kits (baby rabbits),
one of which had a cute little white dot on his nose and quickly
became my husband's favorite, which we named Avie.
When Avie was
just over a month old we noticed the other rabbits jumping and laying
on him and he was not very active. Upon further investigation we
found he had lost the use of both his front and hind legs. In essence,
he was paralyzed. After frantic calls to the breeder and two different
veterinary offices we found this is very common - these rabbits
are very fragile and they "break" very easily, they can
become startled, jump and break a bone, usually in their back. Everyone
told us we had no option but to put him down - that was something
we just could not abide by without exhausting any and every option.
had previously used the lights on a friend's Abyssinian guinea pig
that was found lethargic and extremely dehydrated with awesome results
(Gibbs is a very rotund and happy fellow now). I told Kevin (my
hubby) that I really wanted to give the lights a try before we had
to do anything drastic - yes, he was skeptical but we really had
no other viable alternative. I spent that night in my reclining
chair with Avie firmly entrenched in my lap. I set my alarm and
every four hours I would place Avie on the eye mask and "flip
the switch". At the time we had only had our lights for a few
months and all the only setting I was familiar with was the 'A'
setting. By the second day, Avie raised himself up on his front
legs for a short time
I cried. My husband couldn't believe
that the lights were actually working!!! I took a dresser drawer,
made a little bed for Avie and put him on my desk in front of a
picture window so he could get plenty of sunshine. At this point
we were still setting the alarm placing him on the lights every
of the third day I went to get Avie for another session and found
his box was empty. I went looking for hubby to see if they were
having some quiet time together, but he did not have him. I went
running back to my office and started searching
he had actually
JUMPED out of his makeshift bed onto my desk where I found him on
top of my paper shredder
oh happy days! He continued to improve
and become more and more active. We kept him on the lights twice
a day for a week, then once a day for another week just for good
As you can see
from the pictures Avie is a very much alive. A lively and justifiably
(according to my hubby) spoiled rabbit who has suffered no permanent
damage from his incident. He (and the lights) made a believer out
of my husband who also began to use them on a regular basis with
great results. Kevin has embraced the light technology to the point
where he provides a testimonial (using Avie) at the start of every
one of his twice a month educational seminars. We also operate a
light room during the seminars allowing potential customers to experience
the power of the LED Light Therapy system. Kevin is quick to point
out during his seminars that "it's the best and safest way
to get lit and then still legally drive home"
both a native plant nursery and fiber farm, we don't hesitate to
use the lights on any of our animals be it dogs, cats, rabbits or
livestock. We have seen the lights close wounds and clear infections
without the costly visit of a vet.

Avie one year
later - waiting to be groomed
a bird, it's a plane...it's my platypus dog
Living in the
country you never know what the morning will bring...but this was
something we were just not expecting...one of our boys tangled with
something...and the sores would just burst and start bleeding.
We had already
been treating him for an ear infection so we just added another
pad. Caine loves his light therapy, he sees me come outside with
the unit and jumps up on his platform - he must know they make him
feel better! To add insult to injury, the next day I ran over Caine's
leg with the golf cart - I didn't see him and he didn't hear me.
I am happy to report that in a matter of days my big boy was back
to stalking, running, playing and protecting his property.
Abyssinian Guinea Pig Named Gibbs
we found Gibbs he was laying under a toy, lethargic and dull-eyed.
His once beautiful coat was short and coarse. He road home on my lap,
not moving or showing any interest in his surroundings. We put him
in a cage and gave him a drop or two of vitamin C water, yet he just
layed where we put him. Remembered Racer Carol telling us she used
the lights on animals with great results. With that in mind...
to my hubby's dismay, we surrounded Gibb's cage in Lights. During
the first session he actually moved to one of the pads and layed in
front of it. After his third session, Gibbs started to nibble on food
and take water on his own - he just loves parsley which is packed
with vitamin C. My 4-H friends were amazed Gibbs recovered at all.
They told us most guinea pigs in his severe condition (poor little
guy didn't have a belly at all he was so de-hydrated) would not have
made it. Thanks to light therapy Gibbs is running about and his beautiful
coat has been restored.
