As explained in the page on the history of light therapy, Colour Light has been applied
for thousands of years for treatment of diseases and disorders. After a break during
the Industrial Revolution it again found its way into healing in the 20th century.
However a lot has changed in the last decades: light therapy is no longer a mystery.
A vast field of rational science has emerged, which fully supports the principles
of Colour Light therapy and is capable of explaining its miraculous results!
Albert Einstein was one of the first scientists, to show that light, even in small
quantities, has a significant influence on solid matter. He proved that light waves
(photons) caused a flood of electrons to detach from metal exposed to light.
After Einstein other researchers confirmed his observation and went on to demonstrate
that when an electron absorbs a photon (light wave), it moves into a faster orbit
with a higher frequency. Conversely, if electrons release photons they revert to
a slower orbit with a lower frequency.
In the 80’s Nobel laureate, German biophysicist Fritz-Albert Popp demonstrated that
humans are beings of light and showed that all natural organisms transmit light at
cellular levels. Organic life forms absorb and process light which forms the basis
for all communication between the cells.
Further support for this was gained in the late 80’s by the scientific team led by
Russian Professor Kaznecheyev. The team proved that the human body contains channels
of light, which run parallel to the twelve meridians of TCM (Traditional Chinese
Medicine). They also showed that the acupuncture points absorb light.
The meridians form an information transportation system around the body using light
waves, in much the same way as optic fibres of modern telecommunication transmit
information around the world.
This was also shown by another research project by Peter Mandel in cooperation with
Dr. Helmut Schimmel. With sophisticated diagnostic instruments they showed an energy
pulse being sent via the meridians when coloured light was administered to the surface
of the body on acupuncture points. The energy pulse had a significant influence on
organs and endocrine glands far away and deep inside the body. They also noted that
each colour generates its own pulse with another impact on the body. Red generates
a pulse which stimulates whereas green invites relaxation.
In addition to the light that originates outside the body and is utilised by it,
light is also produced inside our body. The “spiritual” community had long held this
view, one which has recently received scientific backing. Based on the theoretical
models of Dr. Herbert Fröhlich (he calculated that the DNA in cells should deliver
a very weak ultra-fine light signal) it was again Dr. Popp, who provided the evidence.
Using highly sophisticated cameras, Dr. Popp photographed light emanating from cells.
Eventually, Popp's work expanded to video taping groups of living cells. One of his
more notable videos depicts two groups of cells, each in their own individual culture
mediums, each physically separated from the other by a glass partition. The video
clearly shows one group of cells collectively flashing semaphore like messages which
in turn brought light responses from the cells across the partition.
Each cell broadcasts
messages to its surrounding cells by means of the information encoded in the flashes
of light that it regularly transmits. All these signals generate an electromagnetic
field (aura or light matrix), which is powerful enough to be felt outside the physical
More recently Valerie Hunt of the University of California, Los Angeles has
developed specific methods to study this electromagnetic field. She measures the
light matrix and has shown that there are chaotic fluctuations days before a disorder
reveals itself in the body. Disorders are present outside the physical body as energetic
disturbances in the light matrix and can be treated there before they impact on the
When a cell divides (mitosis), it emits a bright flash of light. Again at cell death
there is a flash of light. Intercellular communication is via light frequency modulation.
Together, they generate fields powerful enough to extend far off our body.
not only guide what happens inside our body, but produce an atmosphere around it,
continuously in touch with the environment. Inside the body, the cells react to their
environment. When these outer fields are muddled and show stress, the reaction of
the cells is to isolate themselves from the stressor. In the short term this shows
itself as an acute illness. When the stress continues the cells switch to a more
permanent chronic reaction, they re-program to survive the stressor. In this state
they cease to communicate with the rest of the body.
Although nobody has yet succeeded
in decoding the information contained in the flashes of light inside our body, it
is clear that there is a meaning, and light is the language of the body.
“We are still on the threshold of fully understanding the complex relationship between
light and life, but we can now say, emphatically, that the function of our entire
metabolism is dependent on light”.
(Fritz Albert Popp)
The remarkable characteristics of UV light
In another field of research, William Douglass,
MD, writes of his experience as a medical doctor working with ultra-violet light.
In his clinic he commonly destroys bacteria and viruses by radiating blood samples
with UV light. He says that UV light has distinct germicidal properties, often more
potent than any anti- biotic medicine. Dr. Douglass says that the UV light both kills
invading viruses, and simultaneously strengthens the host's immune system to prevent
any further infections. Equally remarkable, Dr. Douglass says that UV light has the
power to neutralize chemical toxins. He gives many examples of the kinds of toxins
that light can render harmless, but it is the snake bite poison stories that will
stick in your mind the longest. Rattlesnake, copperhead, cobra......When a southerner
was brought to his clinic for a potentially fatal rattlesnake bite, Dr. Douglass
used UV light to neutralize the poison within minutes!
The importance of healthy food
In the International Institute for Biophysics (IIB)
in Kaiserslautern (Germany) a study of the photon emission in food, cultivated in
various manners has been done. The outcome of the research is, that the nutritional
value is stipulated by the degree in which the food contains light. Among other things
they noted, that the use of fertilizer decreases the light and the nutritional value
by 20%. They saw similar effects with oil used to prepare food: the more saturated
the oil is, the less light it contains and the less it contributes to health. Meanwhile
the IIB have developed an instrument, which measures the light (photon emission)
