For complete healing the core emotional and spiritual wound(s) that manifested as arthritis need to be healed on the cellular, subconscious and spiritual level. Also, food sensitivities/allergies and lack of minerals, vitamins and supplements need to be addressed. While the laser treatments reduce the swelling and drives the pain below the surface of the conscious mind; the emotional, cellular and spiritual core wound will remain and will resurface after a period of time. Therefore, it is imperative that emotional and spiritual healing are simultaneously administered rather than a wait and see philosophy as to what results the laser treatment will provide. Because in the short-term, Laser treatments will provide absence of pain and swelling, but not heal the cause of the arthritis.
