    I fractured my superior pubic ramus on Easter Sunday. I’ve used red light wand every day since. I’m almost back to normal and everyone surprised how quickly I’ve recovered. I’m 67. I also eat low carb with if.

    I use far and near infra red every morning , I don’t have gout but it has helped with many many things. Using a steam spa every night also has many benefits 😊 thanks Dr berg

    • Dr. Eric Berg DC on May 12, 2023 at 4:52 pm

    In the early 90s, my ex-boyfriend’s father was a cardiologist. He invented a red light therapy called the Bio-tron. Everyone in the medical field deemed him a nut job. Now a days, I see more of this red light therapy. His name was Dr. Christian Dan Roehm, if you want to research any of his work. He also did Chelation in conjunction with red light.

      Sounds flashy but actually it’s nonsense. It’s very likely old infrared filament lamps from the ’30 are the most effective. It is wideband with a small portion of UV which LED doesn’t have, i think.

      I’m using old style Edison filament lamp with the well known red filter on it

    • Blessed.2.Teach.4.God on May 12, 2023 at 6:23 pm

      What type of condition(s) did he advocate/intend using it for? Thank you.

  10. Yankee 🌹 Rose on May 12, 2023 at 11:48 am

  12. Elizabeth on May 12, 2023 at 1:26 pm

    I’m a physical therapist in the UK. I trained 1991-1994 and we trained with infra red light treatments. They were used extensively for skin, joint and soft tissue injuries. It went out of fashion in favour of magnetic therapies. I continued to use it despite protestations from many colleagues. What goes around comes around re branded, repackaged and given a PR boost. Reinventing the wheel comes to mind.

  13. John Sellers on May 12, 2023 at 1:44 pm

    I use to eat a lot of bologna and hot dogs that were made from chicken, beef and pork products and a lot of pork as well and I suffered from gout so bad. But I stopped eating them and I haven’t had gout since. Vienna Sausage is the worst in case you were wondering.

  14. Ruth Keto on May 12, 2023 at 1:55 pm

    Dr Berg, can taking enough vitamins to turn your urine colors be bad for your kidneys or liver? I try to find vitamins that are food based without additives, but I worry that I’m overworking my body. Sometimes I feel hot at night and cool during the day.

  15. Vero Vino on May 12, 2023 at 2:22 pm

    Great video! Thank you and your guest. I’ve been using infrared light therapy for my shoulder and knee pains and it does work. I have a friend with gout problems and I’ll share this video with him.

  16. N2 DaAIR on May 12, 2023 at 2:31 pm

    Hey Dr. Berg, been a fan for awhile now and I’m seeing where there’s much more to supplementation than just downing some pills or powders. It would be awesome if you could make a video about HOW certain supplements should be taken! There’s so many little nuances to this issue. Just saw one where taking vitamin b12 needs to be under the tongue to be effective. Lots to these supplements that aren’t known. Thanks for what you’re doing!

  17. David on May 12, 2023 at 2:37 pm

    In the description below the video, can you please include links on what you may think are effective home red light lasers for Gout?

  18. Mark Carey on May 12, 2023 at 2:41 pm

    Good morning, Dr. Berg. My sister discovered you 2 months ago with your video about nutritional yeast for memory. We have been taking it for 2 months now. I have been able to focus more. Thank you Sir for teaching videos!!

    • Dr. Eric Berg DC on May 12, 2023 at 3:29 pm

      Glad you found the video helpful!

    Hey Doc, its so convenient that you posted this, because I wanted to ask if you know a reason why some people such as myself expierence burning sensation in the belly area during high intensity training or even just rotating your hips alot causing the acid in stomach to shake. Im not sure if its because I may have more stomach acid than usual, or if its another condition which i can seem to identifty clearly on the internet. Any feedback is much appreaciated!

    Hello Dr Berg and team, can you please make a video about toenail discoloration and what it could be. Thank you 🙏🏽
