Old School Red Ray Therapy

According to Adano Ley (Swami Nitty-Gritty) …

“There’s nothing new under the Sun.”

He was quoting Ecclesiastes 1:9 …

“What has been will be again, what has been done will be done again; there is nothing new under the sun.”


Neils Ryberg Finsen (1860-1904) won the Nobel Prize in 1903 “in recognition of his contribution to the treatment of diseases, especially lupus vulgaris, with concentrated light radiation, whereby he has opened a new avenue for medical science.”

He wrote …

“I […] devised the treatment of small-pox in red light (1893) and further the treatment of lupus (1895).”


Red light therapy has been practiced for hundreds (maybe thousands) of years.

Professor Finsen “reinvented the (color) wheel.”


Reynold Webb Wilcox, M.D., & A.A. Stevens, M.D. (“Materia Medica, Experimental Therapeutics, and Pharmacology,” American Year-Book of Medicine and Surgery, Vol. 10, 1905) wrote …

“N.R. Finsen reinforces his defense of the red-light treatment of smallpox (see Year-Book, 1904) by reference to 5 communications that have recently appeared, all favorable to this treatment. In addition, he has had reports from 2 small epidemics on the Faroe Islands and in England, in which red light was used with unquestionably good results. Naunyn was especially impressed with its action in 11 cases at Strasburg, although 1 exceptionally severe confluent case terminated fatally. Emmerson, in a private letter to Finsen, expresses himself much more favorably than in his published report. Five of his 11 patients had never been vaccinated. Carassa did not have any suppuration fever in his 6 cases thus treated, including 3 confluent ones.

“J.T.C. Nash has employed the red-light treatment in 30 cases of smallpox. Though none of the cases were regarded as being extremely grave, he believes that the suppurative stage was considerably modified and rendered less severe by the red rays, or rather by the exclusion of the other elements of light. H. Peck reports the results of the red-light treatment in 85 cases of smallpox. There were 2 deaths, 1 an unvaccinated child of 7, giving a mortality among the unvaccinated of 8.3%; the other of a debilitated tramp, giving a mortality among the vaccinated of 1.3%. Disfigurement was less frequent. Peck believes that the results point to the advisability of a more extended trial of the treatment. T.F. Ricketts and J.B. Byles have employed the red light in 13 cases (5 vaccinated, 6 unvaccinated; 4 discrete, 9 confluent) of smallpox. Two of the patients died. The authors regard the treatment as being harmful rather than beneficial. A great drawback to the treatment, they find, is that it puts a check on the supply of fresh air. J. Regnault calls attention to the fact that red applications (red lotions and red curtains) have been extolled by the Chinese for centuries as effectual in smallpox.”


Today’s air condition easily overcomes any “check on the supply of fresh air.”

    When a person’s “aura” reflects any color and is not clear, it indicates a biased and ‘dis-eased’ psychophysiology.

    An “aura” represents the part or parts of the visible spectrum that are REJECTED, not absorbed, and therefore remain visible.

    “Colored” is defined as “influenced, biased, or distorted,” and shares the same etymological root as the words “hell” and “conceal.”

    To be “clear” of a trauma is to be done with it.

    Nobody goes to a therapist to be “colored” of a trauma; they go to be “cleared” of it, to become “transparent” (trans/parent).

    The Diamond Body is the body that “casts no shadow.”

    A colorless diamond is a pure diamond.

    Sunlight can pass completely through a block of ice without melting it.

    The trouble doesn’t begin till sunlight’s specific color frequencies – red through violet – are stopped.

    The cell’s constituents are mostly colorless, otherwise the cell’s chemical unsaturation of biocolorants would lead to a greater degree of chemical reactivity and an increase in temperature and entropy – heat death.

    An analogous entropic situation occurs in Earth’s biosphere, which smashes yellow solar photons into infrared heat photons 20 times lower in energy but 20 times greater in number with 20 times as much entropy.

    So, red light administered via Dinshaw Gadiali (sp) book “Let There Be Light” ?

      The Ghadiali Spectro-Chrome Metry is the highest choice … until I complete my latest e-book on color.

    this is ambiguous to me. Is this a good thing?

      Yikes! Thanks for catching this, Chris!

      Ventilation by fan is ideal.

      Ventilation by refrigerated air conditioning is contraindicated.

      Modern air conditioning is a major cause of atherosclerosis and arteriosclerosis.

      AC disrupts circadian temperature rhythms, especially for indoor people who can’t compensate with an intact circadian light/color rhythm.
