Any technology that relates to shifting or moving our energy around has always fascinated me. As a dancer, I have always felt an intuitive connection to the energy that runs through us all. Dancers can often feel each other without looking at each other, sensing the energy of those around them. Throughout my life I’ve felt especially attuned to these subtle energetic shifts which is what draws me to technology like cold laser therapy. I was first led to laser technology by a healer friend who helped me find my way back to homeostasis while I was a working dancer in my twenties. I found scalar lasers to be powerful at shifting energy; they often would help my injuries heal faster. I’ve also found that using the laser on my chest before bed helps my body calm down after a long day. I never really understood the science behind the technology that’s been so useful for me, so I’m grateful for this opportunity to learn more about these devices.
Cold laser therapy has also been instrumental in the health of my animal companions. All of my pets are rescues, and many of them have had health problems ranging from blindness to intestinal issues to chronic sinus infections. Animals often react well to small shifts of energy and whenever one of my pets is having problems and I don’t know the cause, a session with a laser set seems to relieve their discomfort.
All in all, I’ve been using cold laser therapy for almost thirty years now to help balance, restore and shift my energy as well as invest in the wellness of my animals. I’m so excited to have this opportunity to speak with the founder of Discover Lasers, Kalon Prensky, about his story and this amazing technology.
Carrie Ann: Thank you so much for speaking with us about your product. I love my Scalar Laser; I have been using it for years and have experienced what it can do. Can you explain the science behind the laser, how it works and what the health benefits of using it are?
Kalon: Cold Laser Therapy, or CLT, has been in use for over 50 years. Albert Einstein played a role in creating the first cold laser made from a red ruby in the 1960’s. Since then, thousands of lasers have been created and used consistently throughout the world for humans, animals and even plants.
Red lasers are now known to offer the strongest anti-inflammatory results along with pain relief and stimulation of elastin, and they have strong antiviral properties as well. They penetrate approximately a half inch into the body and are wonderful for all soft tissue issues, skin, wounds, wrinkles, cold sores, gums, mucosal tissues, acne, arthritis and shallow pain.
Near InfraRed (NIR) lasers are the longest wavelength and penetrate up to three inches into the body. They are popular for acute and chronic pain and all musculoskeletal, spine and joint related issues including arthritis, increasing collagen in joints and spine, increasing bone density by stimulating osteoblasts and fibroblasts, reducing inflammation and increasing blood circulation. Cold lasers help to increase the movement of both blood and lymph and they deactivate seven of the nine enzymes that cause inflammation by up to 70%. They are an all-natural analgesic pain reliever.
Carrie Ann: It’s incredible that the laser has such a wide range of benefits. Are there any potential risks in using the laser, i.e. damage to the eyes or other body parts?
Kalon: Cold lasers are extremely safe and many are cleared by the FDA for home use, including the Scalar Wave Laser. Cold lasers biostimulate cells and tissues and cannot make a cell worse, but there are a few contraindications for use. Do not shine in an open eye as damage to the retina is possible with enough close range or direct exposure to the retina. Do not use over the fetus of a pregnant woman and do not use directly over a known cancer as not enough research has been done to clarify the exact parameters of what might cause a cancer to grow or shrink in the presence of CLT. Some medications can cause light sensitivity and some people can be extremely light sensitive, but this is rare.
Carrie Ann: It’s great to know that using this laser is relatively safe as long as it’s used correctly! Does the laser get hot?
Kalon: Cold lasers such as the Scalar Wave Laser do not produce enough heat to cause any damage to cells and tissues.
Carrie Ann: Can you walk us through the best way to use the laser?
Kalon: There are many ways to use a cold laser and there are many different types of cold lasers. The main Scalar Wave Laser (SWL) is a cluster laser consisting of 36 diodes (8 red lasers, 8 IR lasers and 20 blue/violet LEDs). It has 11 unique preset settings that contain special therapeutic Hz frequencies and each one has a name. It also produces a patented Scalar Wave that helps to clear outdated cellular data.
I offer a two page cheat sheet to our customers who purchase the laser through DiscoverLasers.com which summarizes the use and benefits of each setting, along with a large array of specialized treatment protocols for treating hundreds of symptoms and conditions. I love the blood cleanse protocol, the unwinding protocol, the chakra protocol and many of the other protocols that are based on the principles of acupuncture and reflexology.
Carrie Ann: These protocols sound fascinating! From the 11 basic settings, could you describe a generic wellness routine to get new users started?
Kalon: Using the Scalar Wave Laser every day for a month in the following ways can create an incredible reset for the body, glands and nervous system. The blood cleansing protocol is very easy but profound as the bloodstream is the “river of life.” 20 minutes with the laser on the Pleo or Vital Settings (I like to alternate between them each time I use it) will transform the blood from a low energy, low oxygen state into a high energy, high oxygen state. Simply set the timer to 20 minutes, select your setting and place the laser against the skin, three inches below the navel. All the blood in the body passes through this artery every 20 minutes, thus energizing and oxygenating all of the blood in your body, which lasts for about 24 hours. Of course this process does many more beneficial things to the blood and organs as well. I usually do this process when l go to sleep at night, as I find it quite comforting and it is easy to do.
If you have more time, the unwinding protocol is fantastic for resetting the adrenal glands, opening up the energy and information transmission through the spine, resetting the nervous system and the vagus nerve and boosting the immune system. It takes about 25 minutes. There are five points to place the laser for four minutes each. Use the unwind setting on both adrenal glands, sacrum, occipital ridge and then switch to the quantum setting for the last point over the thymus gland, the anti-aging and immune boosting gland, in the center of the chest.
My included training program goes over these and hundreds more protocol options to support optimal health.
Carrie Ann: Thank you for walking us through some of the ways we can use this laser for maximum relief. Does the laser work on arthritis?
Kalon: Yes! The Scalar Wave Laser is an ideal personal laser for treating arthritis. It is FDA cleared for arthritis, pain relief, increasing blood circulation, reducing inflammation and relaxing contracted tissues.
Carrie Ann: A lot of our readers have autoimmune conditions. Is there a laser regimen you would suggest for autoimmune symptoms like lupus rash, joint pain, restless leg syndrome, insomnia, anxiety, or depression?
Kalon: Autoimmune conditions, anxiety and insomnia are often a result of a combination of accumulated stressors in a person’s life such as trauma, accidents, injuries, heavy metals, glyphosate, molds, fungus, yeast and other toxins that build up in the body over time. This leads to high levels of chronic contraction within the cells and tissues, preventing or slowing down proper blood circulation, detoxification and other optimal cellular processes from occurring. A healthy cell will absorb energy and nutrients, and eliminate wastes and toxins. When cells become saturated with unhealthy ingredients, it can lead to hypoxia or cell death, resulting in degeneration and disease.
With cold lasers we work to remove the stress and contraction from the cells, tissues, glands and organs, and feed them with frequencies and photons. Cold laser therapy repolarizes cells so the cell membrane can once again become permeable, allowing wastes and toxins to be released and for photons to be absorbed. Cold lasers deliver a flood of photons that are converted into ATP, the preferred fuel source of all cells in the body. Thus lasers give the body and cells the energy that is needed for healing and repair to occur. Laser therapy supports healing, pain relief, organ and gland balancing, regeneration and rejuvenation on a cellular level, naturally, with zero negative side effects. Cold laser therapy is a perfect natural compliment to a healthy lifestyle to support health and healing in ways that are simply not achievable in any other way.
Carrie Ann: This is good to hear; I’m always looking for health resources that can help with my autoimmune conditions without any additional side effects. Can you explain the laser’s use for animals? What sort of benefits can it have for them?
Kalon: With Cold Laser Therapy there is no placebo effect. It either works or it doesn’t. Animals are often quite sensitive and they tend to be naturally attracted to things that are good for them.
Most dogs, cats and even horses love laser therapy and respond to it very well. It is common to watch old dogs get up after treatment and behave like a puppy with youth and energy that may not have been witnessed for some time. Laser therapy works in the same ways for animals as it does for humans, increasing blood circulation, treating the joints and spine, reducing pain and inflammation, balancing hormones, glands and organs. The laser is used to support the areas of the body that need energy, balancing and unwinding. Laser probes can also be used to quickly and effectively treat the acupuncture points of the animals, which further supports healing and rejuvenation.
Carrie Ann: I’ve definitely seen this effect in my own animals when I’ve used it on them. Can you share any stories of amazing results from people who used the laser?
Kalon: I certainly could but I hardly know where to begin. I have thousands of satisfied customers over nearly 14 years of sharing the Scalar Wave Lasers with both home users and practitioners. I regularly speak with customers after many years of them using the Scalar Wave Laser and in nearly every case there are two common responses: “I love my laser” and “I couldn’t live without my laser, I use it all of the time.” Laser therapy is like oral hygiene; you never want to be without it.
A few years after I had been using the SWL with great success on myself my mom came to visit me. She was walking with a cane because her knees were really bothering her and she was afraid she would have to give up two of her favorite things: long walks and dancing. I said, “You have got to try this laser on your knee, because many of my customers tell me it has made a huge difference in their lives and some folks even cancelled scheduled operations.” In that week while she was visiting I gave her three laser treatments. The day before she left she threw away the cane and we went out dancing. That was about fourteen years ago and guess what? She never had an operation, and instead she got her own laser. She is still cane free and enjoying life.
Carrie Ann: That’s wonderful to hear! Could we get some background on you and how you get involved in laser healing? Do you use the laser yourself for any sort of chronic pain?
Kalon: I got involved in holistic healing, massage, reflexology, Reiki, yoga, acupuncture, diet, nutrition, herbology, chiropractic and naturopathic medicine about 35 years ago. I have personally been using and sharing cold lasers for over 18 years as a means of repairing my body and keeping my cells and systems operating at peak performance. It is an essential part of a well balanced lifestyle: healthy diet, nutritional/herbal supplements, exercise and cold laser therapy. Being able to do cold laser therapy at home on a regular basis has given me a new lease on life. Nothing else compares with it. I have suffered from many health issues including fibromyalgia, adrenal fatigue, carpal tunnel syndrome, degenerative disc disease with ongoing chronic pain in my neck and lumbar spine, rotator cuff inflammation, knee pain, foot pain, hand and wrist pain to name a few.
As a natural health practitioner I have refused to take pharmaceuticals most of the time and I prefer to avoid surgical procedures, with the exception of my right wrist, which was shattered in a skateboarding accident when I was a teenager. Later a car accident resulted in whiplash and the X-ray revealed a degenerating disc in my neck. This was in 2002 before I discovered how effective cold laser therapy can be, and I spent a year doing all kinds of therapy with only temporary relief from the ongoing chronic pain which was ruining my life. In 2003 I was introduced to a Scalar Wave Laser precursor. I used it on my neck every day and it healed my neck after just one month. Next, I used it on my old wrist injury that now had full blown carpal tunnel syndrome along with arthritis in my hand and fingers. I could not make a fist and was frequently in pain. After a week of using the laser on my hand and wrist daily, the carpal tunnel was completely gone. After a month of using it my arthritis was over 30% gone and after 3 months it was 95% gone. The bulging lower back disks also normalized with regular laser use and I literally got my life back.
I lived on a farm at the time and I could finally work the land again and do many challenging physical things that I had feared I might not be able to do again. I was even able to spend the next three years building a beautiful house overlooking the ocean and jungle. Unfortunately, a friend convinced me to use Roundup to kill off a huge patch of cane grass that was taking over parts of the farmland, exposing me to toxic glyphosate which I later learned is much more toxic than was previously believed or promoted. Some years later my wife of 14 years and I filed for divorce. It was a challenging time to say the least and my adrenal glands were maxed out. At this point I had been using the Scalar Wave Laser for a while and I decided to do the unwinding protocol that was taught to me by the inventor of the SWL. We were friends at the time and he had a unique approach to laser therapy that was quite revolutionary. He developed the laser to not only address musculoskeletal issues, but to also support the glandular and organ systems of the body. Through using the laser I found that my adrenal glands responded beautifully to the treatment and my nervous system was able to relax and unwind from the constant contraction of one stressful event after another.
As I continued on my healing journey, I kept using my lasers, using, learning, sharing and practicing laser therapy in many different ways. I found that using the cold lasers and particularly the Scalar Wave Laser on a regular basis supported significant pain relief and overall healing that was not attainable with any other means. Cold lasers are a valuable part of any health and maintenance program to treat fibromyalgia, arthritis, pain and discomforts associated with stress, autoimmunity and inflammation issues. I highly recommend it.
Carrie Ann: Wow, that’s an incredible story. I’m so glad you were able to discover laser therapy to heal your own pain and then use it to help countless others as well. Thank you for sharing your journey and giving us an inside look into how this incredible technology works.
