Anodyne treatment for EM

Hi Guys,

I am back with new and exciting stuff after my enforced EM sabatical . Get your reading glasses and discussion hats ready :

Something which, i must admit, is unfamiliar to me

'Anodyne Physical Therapy' - given for peripheral neuropathy BUT could be applicable to EM.

Anodyne Therapy (Monochromatic Infrared Photo Energy or MIRE) is designed to maximize the effectiveness of infrared photo energy to increase circulation and reduce pain in the area to which it is applied.

Non invasive machine which is applied to area

Up to 3,200% increased circulation within 20 minutes.

Given as a 12 week therapy.


People have told me good results. Immediate reduction in all type of vascular- related pain

Peer reviewed studies.

How it works:

Infrared photo energy causes the photo-dissociation of Nitic Oxide (NO) from the endothelial cells at the site of treatment and from hemoglobin in the red blood cells (RBC's). The continuous delivery of RBCs sustains the local increase of NO during delivery of Anodyne Therapy, resulting in vasodilation which can indirectly relieve pain caused by lack of blood flow. NO release may also directly contribute to the pain relief documented to occur during treatment.

Now nitric oxide - otherwise known as Nitroprusside - usually given as an IV Sodium nitroprusside a vasodilator that works by relaxing the muscles in your blood vessels to help them dilate. This lowers blood pressure and allows blood to flow more easily through your veins and arteries. endothelial dysfunction is a systemic pathological state of the endothelium (the inner lining of blood vessels) and can be broadly defined as an imbalance between vasodilating and vasoconstricting substances produced by (or acting on) the endothelium. Endothelial dysfunction is thought to be a key event in the development of atherosclerosis and has been reported to predate clinically obvious vascular pathology by many years. Interesting for us secondary EM'ers who are idiopathic (secondary unknown ).

God bless

It is best not to trust the seller to give you the real scoop. Look to an outside, non-commercial source for information about treatments.

There is one review of studies for anodyne, but it is not particularly helpful, as the study designs and limitations were not reviewed, only the results:

In a more rigorous study, the news isn't looking good for anodyne:

What is interesting, though, is that a strong placebo effect was observed from the "sham treatment" in the double-blind study.
