Red Light Therapy
Investigators at the Sackler School of Medicine at Tel Aviv University in Israel report that using a painless probe that delivers pulses of red light to the nasal passages relieved allergy symptoms in 70% of patients studied. By comparison, only 24% of patients who received a sham light treatment reported fewer symptoms. The technique appears to help dry up the respiratory passages. Further research is needed before the device becomes available in the U.S.
