  • Can Light Heal Pain?

    The first time I heard about laser therapy, a type of light therapy for pain, a veterinarian recommended it for my cat, who had osteoarthritis in her hip.  My knowledge of lasers at the time was limited to a vague idea that they were used to cut tissue in surgery.  I couldn’t imagine how that […]

  • Smoking vs. Eating Marijuana
