On the Vielight device usage protocol
August 17th, 2020
All information being shared here are specific to my case, and there is more that Dr. Marvin has stated and typically provides to his patients.
During my session with the doctor, I was asked to get into three different protocols/setups for the Vielight device. The easier to do is to share them in photos below
The doctor stated that is is best done in sequence, where each one of them is done on a separate day.
The session takes 20 minutes, typically. However, Dr. Berman stated clearly that it is best that those 20 minutes are separated into 5 minutes each, with 10 minute break in between seeking to see if there are any reactions.
So, in total, the whole experience will last 50 minutes
The doctor stated clearly that if I felt any of the symptoms below, then I should be stopping for the day and not continue that 20 minutes protocol. The symptoms includes
- Stuffiness or ‘fullness’
I was also told to not increase the length of time until I am no longer reacting with any of the above responses
On my third session (Protocol C in the photos), I felt sleepy but I continued until the 20 minutes where over (by mistake!). So, Dr. Berman informed me to take a 3 to 5 days off before starting the process again.
Well, some doctors stated that 6 weeks and others said it’s 12 weeks. Dr. Berman said to me that this treatment is likely something I’ll be doing forever as a way to regain and maintain your capabilities
He did inform me that if things did not work for the first month, we would have to review and revise our approach.
The doctor is also an expert in the Neurofeedback area, and he wished I could do a recent qEEG so he would make further recommendations that will go along the Vielight design. Perhaps sometime soon, that will be possible.
Until then, I thought I will just use my NeurOptimal neurofeedback device.
