SneezerBeam is a non-invasive light therapy that treats allergic symptoms such as congestion, runny nose, watery eyes and a headache using only light. SneezerBeam works by using two combined beams of light to inhibit the cells in your nose that release histamine, which is at the center of what triggers your allergic symptoms. The technology is based upon a clinical trial on 40 patients suffering from allergic rhinitis. During the trial 20 patients were given the same light therapy used in Sneezer Beam and 20 received a placebo. The results showed 72% of patients using the light therapy showed a marked improvement of their symptoms (compared to just 24% in the placebo group) and were published in the Annals of Allergy, Asthma and Immunology.
