Colored glass
hinders passing other rays with the exception of those which are of that color like the glass itself. (chapter 32)

Water beings - irradiation of water
Plants and beings above all are consisting in water, and therefore colors have a big effect on plants and beings. Therefore the color irradiation is principally a "water irradiation". But "normal medicine" does not take this earnest... (conclusion in chapter 6)

1. Goethe's color theory as a base and signpost

With Goethe the colors are put into a circle in a complementary order. According to Eberhard the color circle of Goethe is the best, and there are rules: Mixing the opposite colors in same quantities the result has to be a gray.

The original of Goethe's color circle is a little bit yellowed. The colors are given characters and qualities:

Later Goethe's color doctrine is presented often as a fake. Goethe himself means:

"I was the only one in my century detecting the real nature of the colors, and I can be proud of it."
(orig. German: "Dass ich in meinem Jahrhundert der einzige bin, der das wahre Wesen der Farben erkannt hat, darauf tue ich mir etwas zugute.")

But important is not only the content of Goethe's color theory, but also the framework, the method around it. Goethe is also the founder of the physiological optics.

Goethe's point of view is the following: Who is not capable to get the nature of the color, he never will conceive the big values of the forces of the colors, can never conceive the law of God in the colors as a witness of a better world.

Getting the nature of the colors is only possible contemplating the colors in nature and by investigation of their principles.

Goethe's point of view about color investigation is the following:

Psychological effect is more important than the physical effect. Impressions of colors have a specific effect and the result are different moods of tempers.

In experiments the force of different colors can be shown: A stay in a room with only one color has consequences that the person is identifying with the color. The color is influencing eye and spirit in one.

Colors can be rated in friendly and unfriendly colors, in harmonic and disharmonic colors. The effect depends also from the light intensity. And the color has different effects when the light is different.

Goethe's thesis:

- colors can change the humans

- colors can have different effects depending on the light

                          forest edge
A forest edge [5] is a good example where the light provokes different tones of green on the same plant.

Goethe about laws in the "book of nature"

Nature has it's order - colors are the signs of spirit
Goethe means who is capable to read in the "book of nature", these persons can detect wonderful things. All laws in nature are witnesses of a big mental order. In all elements an order principle can be recognized.

In 20th century technique is dominating and only technical orders are allowed. But nature is ordering the spirit. [Native religions have partly preserved their contact with nature, are preserving their contact with the Great Spirit, the creative spirit]. Nature [of creative spirit] is ordering the things depending on forces, energies, and characteristics. Nature [of creative spirit] is ordering the visible from the invisible, is ordering the corporal from the spiritual. Only with the colors nature is showing us the spirit in a visible way which is connecting time, fame and body forming a "unity". [The creative spirit shows himself to the humans only in the colors].

Spectrum of colors by prism or rainbow - colors in different lights
Color as spirit
we can see in the color beam parted by a prism (light refraction) or in the sky in a rainbow

                          2008 [9]

[When it's raining and sun is shining at the same time, the water drops of the rain have the effect being a prisma, and therefore a "rain bow" is visible].
Color as a body
we can see in the colors of the plants and of the living beings, pigment colors, coloring material
                          forest edge in Central Europe during autumn [6]
Color as a body and spirit together
we can see in brightening colors with colored electric light bulbs
                          in blue [10]
                          wheel (mandala form) [11]

Colors come as a spirit (the color of the light) and as bodies (the colors on bodies), separated or united. By the colors also the terms "time" and "space" are united.

One could say that the colors are the bridge from the material world (this world) to the mental world (the beyond) by the simultaneous visualization of spirit, time, space and body.

Giver of the colors is the sun. The sun is the origin of all life and is the condition for all. But the mental steward of the colors is nature [creative spirit].

Character of colors according to Goethe

Colors on the positive side (plus) are: red, yellow-red [orange], and yellow.

Goethe about the contrasts of the two opposite colors yellow and blue

Goethe about yellow: color of light, enlightening, exciting in a smooth way

A yellow room gives a warm and
                            mentally inspiring atmosphere
A yellow room gives a warm and mentally inspiring atmosphere [12]

Yellow is the next color to the light. Yellow is created by a little temperance of the light, for example by dim auxiliaries or by a weak echo from white surfaces. Yellow is lightening the room and the soul, gives a cheerful, lively and smoothly exciting character, and therefore is comfortable for clothes, curtains and wallpapers.

Yellow giving warmth and mediating cheerfulness
-- gives a warm, comfortable impression
-- has a warming effect
-- the warming effect can be noticed above all looking by a yellow glass a landscape - above all during gray winter days
-- yellow mediates cheerfulness, something noble, and something sensitive
-- yellow is also called the color of intelligence.

Goethe about gold
Gold is a strong yellow with a glamor, for example on silk.

Pollution of yellow has bad consequences
-- only a little pollution converts yellow in something brown (when yellow is polluted with a felt or when yellow blankets are polluted)
-- polluted yellow is also a sign of polluted [destructive] intelligence.

Goethe about blue: color of the dark

Blue has a cooling effect which
                          is very useful in certain difficult situations
                          of life
Blue has a cooling effect which is very useful in certain difficult situations of life [13]

Blue as the opposite to yellow has always something dark, and has a strange and almost inexpressible effect. Pure blue is an exciting nothing.

-- is associated with the sky, with something far away
-- a blue surface seems to retreat when we are watching it
-- blue is not coming to us, but likes to come after oneself
-- blue mediates a feeling of cold.

Dark blue in painting is a color for shadows.

Goethe describes it like this: Rooms painted in a good sky-blue give in a certain sense a wide effect, but basically empty and cold.

Blue glass shows objects in a sad light.

Goethe's characteristics of colors
Yellow (growth rays)
Yellow growth rays
gives warmth mediating cheerfulness
Yellow polluted Yellow polluted
is the sign for polluted intelligence
Blue (restraint rays)
Restraint rays of blue Restraint rays: dark
something dark, inapproachable, cold

Spectral analysis

Physics are working with spectral analysis using the Bunsen burner - detection of new metals

Light beam is composed with all colors, and can be parted by a prism. The sequence of colors, the "spectrum", is the one of the rain bow. [Thus a rain bow is the spectrum].

Spectrum can be applied also in other senses, because also every flame (the reaction of heat and air) has got a color spectrum. Depending on the substance burning the flames are different and different colors are dominating (blue, yellow, green etc.). And with this investigation work results the technique of "spectral analysis".

[Bunsen was perfecting the so called "Bunsen burner" named after him [2]]. Spectral analysis as a chemical investigation method was developed by the scientists Bunsen and Kirchoff in 1859. So, investigating the flames precisely chemical analysis are possible. Putting the substance into the flame is changing the spectrum of the flame. With this method of Bunsen burner flame the existence of substances can be proved, e.g. sodium, lithium, potash salts etc. By this method also some unknown metals were found: rubidium, cesium, indium, and talkium [talc?].

The device for spectral analysis [16]
The device for spectral analysis: On the pillar E is put a little peace of the substance to be burnt by the Bunsen burner (D). The flame shows different colors depending on the substance. The light of the flame is lead by the gap (S) by the objective (B), and is broken at the spectrum (F) and is watched by the lens (C). The different spectrums are recorded.

Examples for different spectrums of lights of the flame when different substances are burnt:
Green flame
                                    burning copper
Green flame burning copper
White-yellow-orange flame
                                    burning sodium

Red flame
                                    burning lithium
Red flame burning lithium

Color therapy: effect of colors on the soul

Basics for color therapy
1. Colorless life provokes to be mentally ill
2. Colors have a fine forces and oscillations having effect on life
3. Color therapy is not taken earnest.

Colorless life provokes to be mentally ill

Colorless life provokes to be mentally
                            ill, e.g. life in gray industrialized
                            building (Plattenbau), here an example of ex
                            communist Kaliningrad
vergrössernColorless life provokes to be mentally ill, e.g. life in gray industrialized building (Plattenbau), here an example of ex communist Kaliningrad [21]

Humans in such settlements who have no mental training are automatically driven into alcoholism, aggression or drugs because they are looking for something "exciting" what cannot be given by the gray surrounding of concrete.
Gray hospital
                                    in Langenthal in Switzerland
Colorless life provokes to be mentally ill, e.g. life in a hospital consisting only of gray concrete and in a rejecting shape with not at all an inviting effect (example here is the hospital in Langenthal in Switzerland) [22]

Gray concrete has got a suppressing and lifeless effect. Ill persons should recover in such a suppressing and lifeless surrounding? But healing processes are delayed. But common health insurance is paying all, and all society members have to pay the health insurance tax, so nobody can do anything about this nonsense. And stocks of pharma enterprises only rise with more selling of medicaments. So, gray hospitals are good for stock exchange addicted governments, or even "positive"...

Mentally ill banker in colorless
vergrössernColorless life provokes to be mentally ill, e.g. the life of bankers in black dresses when a tie is the only color of the clothes. But at the same time just this tie is blocking a big part of respiration and blood circulation in the brain... [23]

One can only shake one's head how the upper class (e.g. the bankers) want to feel healthy in ill surroundings with ill combinations of colors and in clothes provoking more illnesses. These men are mentally ill and nothing more than converted into "tie clowns". The same counts for justice (judges), for ministers, for managers, and for higher teaching staff ("professors")...

In a colorless world the fashion would be without colors, all walls would be dark, all curtains would be tight. Statistical investigations can prove that in regions where less colors can be found, more mentally ill people can be found than in regions with much colors: mentally ill, psychological ill, hysterical ill, raving mad people, people with nerve damage. At the end of the 20th century such a dead and colorless life is not imaginable any more.

Colors have forces and undulations having effects on the beings

Colorful life inspires the spirit, e.g.
                            with a garden with flowers
vergrössernColorful life inspires the spirit, e.g. with a garden with flowers [24]
                            life inspires the spirit, e.g. a colorful
                            pedestrian zone like in Lima
vergrössernColorful life inspires the spirit, e.g. a colorful pedestrian zone like in Lima [25]

Body, spirit, and soul have the characteristics and the capacities for undulations which are corresponding with the different characters of colors. The fewest of us have an idea how our mental life is always again and again surrounded by the fine forces and undulations.

There are diverse harmonic and disharmonic connections of these fine forces having an effect on the humans according to his talents:

-- there are good and bad "connections"
-- there are constructive and killing connections
-- there are harmonic and disharmonic connections.

-- harmony is supporting a beneficial and useful force
-- disharmony often has a little cause, but a big and bad effect.

The first color searcher were Dr. Babbitt and Pleasonton

The first color searcher was Dr. med Babbitt (Edwin Dwight Babbitt, 1828-1905 [3]) and Pleasonton (Augustus James Pleasonton, often called A. J. Pleasonton (January 21, 1801–1894) [web19]). He was publishing analysis works and experiences how healings with colors are possible to perform. There is a book by Pleasonton (from 1876 prescribing better growing of wine under blue glass: "The Influence of The Blue Ray Of The Sunlight And Of The Blue Colour Of The Sky" [web20]). As a consequence color therapy was ridiculed by the "exact scientists".

Another book by Pleasonton as it seems was "The blue disintegration of the mind" (German: "Die blaue Geisteszerrüttung"). As a consequence color therapy was ridiculed by "exact scientists" [who are working in gray houses].

Website "Light biology" ("Lichtbiologie") says:

<Babbit was one of the first therapist working with colored light at the end of the 19th century getting the healing effect spreading the light on the whole body. He developed a set of new devices converting sunlight into colored light and in 1978 he published the comprehensive work "The Principles of Light and Color".> [3]

Scionova lexicon says:

Babbitt and Pleasonton described <healing force of colors (above all blue) with effect against different illnesses.> (orig. German: <die Heilkraft der Farben (besonders Blau) bei verschiedenen Krankheiten beschrieben>) [web04]

Research for changing of colors and effect of colors: Dr. Ghadiali

                portrait, doctor, searcher, inventor, a pioneer of
                modern color therapy
Dr. med. Dinshah P. Ghadiali (1873-1966), portrait, doctor, searcher, inventor, a pioneer of modern color therapy [29]

A medical doctor of India, Dr. med. Dinshah P. Ghadiali, also made research in color effects and was asking for changing of colors. Why colors are changing?

-- tomatoes change their color from green into red
-- grass is green
-- but milk is white
-- flowers are blooming, but when they wither then the color is leaving
-- food looses color with digestion
-- red color radiation has got an effect on sexual organs
-- yellow radiation has got an effect on digestion organs
-- flowers of plants being used for the production of laxatives are yellow
-- red radiation has got an effect on more forming of red blood cells (hemoglobin)
-- iron in humid surrounding gets a rust-red color
-- copper red in humid surrounding gets a bluish green color (verdigris).
Why all this?

4. Research in color therapy

There are the following facts about colors:
-- humans have their favorite colors

-- humans and animals are reacting differently to certain colors, why?
-- why the flame is differet by burning different elements?
-- why one can detect inner illnesses observing the skin colors of [white] human beings?

Dr. Ghadiali's research has got it's base on the thesis: By color radiation one can heal illnesses.

At the end Dinshah Ghadiali published sequences of colors as healing recipes which are valid until today. The patients get color radiations in certain sequences of colors, with transparent colored panes resp. with simple colored plastics put at a lamp.

[Color therapy healing heavy diseases]

The web site Horusmedia says (translation by Michael Palomino):

<New respect gets in our times the detailed radiation recommendations by Dinshah Ghadiali, medical doctor, scientist and inventor. For many diseases from asthma up to diabetes and psychological disorder and with bone fractures inclusive Dinshah found out combinations in color radiation therapy. The most important criteria of his color therapy is not the character of the patient, but the most important point is the question if the illness is acute or chronic. When there is an acute illness, so the first radiation is in cyan, and then there are more colors in different blues. When the illness is a chronic one, therapy begins with yellow-green, and then colors in different reds follow. Add to this there is green color for purification, harmonizing and recovery, and there is the color of magenta [red-violet] reinstalling the balance, and if necessary also having effect on the blood. New and partly spectacular healing successes confirm the more than 6,000 healings which were documented in the first half of our century [20th century] with the application of the 12 spectro chrome colors of Dinshah. [...]

There is a natural health professional near Munich, Monnica Hackl, and she can report astonishing successes in healing by light therapy with the 12 healing colors of Dinshah Ghadiali. For example she radiated a person with heavy epilepsy every week one hour with blue. And since the first treatment there was no epileptic attack any more! A shifted cervical vertebra of a patient - which seemed to be shifted for ever provoking also a deformation in the face and of the mouth - was radiated with the color of magenta and was shifting automatically back into the right position. An elder man with heavy depressions sitting around only like a frozen statue got six color radiation sessions and was liberated from all fears and depressions. [...]

[Colors corresponding with chemical elements]

He [Dr. Dinshah P. Ghadiali] detected that his twelve healing colors are corresponding with certain chemical elements. For any element there is a typical spectral line - Fraunhofer spectrum, like a finger print. He ordered the chemical substances to his spectro chrome colors. Therefore could be shown that for example Dinshah colors orange and yellow-green - used for bone constructioning - are also characteristic for calcium and phosphorus. Both elements are the essential substances for building up bones. According to Dinshah's meaning the colors have got their effects not using any element, but they copy the characteristics transporting the energetic information by the colored light. Therefore it's for example possible to heal pains by purple colored light instead of taking bromide pills, because only in bromide the purple color is dominating. Purple in the most effective wavelength - found out by Dinshah - has a good effect for sleeping and calming down.

[Energizing of drinking water with colors]

Indigo water calming nerves: According to many therapists and color searcher water has got the capacity for storing and transmitting undulations of colors as a healing information - similar to homeopathy. When one is taking water which is "energized" by a color, so harmonizing processes can be activated in the body and in the soul. Natural health professional in Munich, Ingrid Kraaz von Rohr, has composed a set of 12 colored dinner mats for energizing water in glasses. The glass of water should be five to ten minutes on the colored dinner mat. And shortly after that the water should be drunk in little portions. By this method there can be healing effect

-- with cyan energized water against electromagnetic undulations and computer undulations
-- indigo water has the effect against appetite and is calming down the nerves
-- and lemon is said to help to leave the past.

The color researcher Dinshah Ghadiali is suggesting the energizing of the water in a much more longer way - at least one hour. Add to this the glass of water should be put into a carton box protecting the water from not wanted light and foreign information around. The color filter is installed in the tap of the box, just over the opening of the glass energizing the water.> [web05]

Color therapy with animals

Colors also have an effect on animals. A red cloth is provoking anger in certain animals: bulls, turkeys, swans, cocks, geese, peacock etc. Other animals do not at all feel provoked by red cloths as [the females] cows, chicken or turkey hens.

Experiments with color influences on small animals: Prof. Finsen

Prof. Niels Ryberg Finsen, portrait
Prof. Niels Ryberg Finsen, portrait [30, web06]

-- Finsen performs experiments with worms, insects, frogs etc.
-- the small animals like mostly certain colors and have an incredible memory of colors
-- for example bees
-- male dorbeetles are evading red and develop an unrest with it
-- female dorbeetles are normally living on a red board.

Conclusion: Red has got an exciting effect only with male animals, not with female ones.

Color therapy with human beings

Medical doctors make color experiments in hospitals stating that ill persons and persons needing recovery often are really "hungry" for certain colors, never dark colors, never gray and never brown tones, but pure and beautiful colors are needed.

When the hospital management knows about it that certain colors have a healing effect on certain illnesses, so the healing process can be fastened, for example with a
                            room in sea green / pastel light green
hospital room in sea green / pastel light green [31]
or with a
hospital room in light blue
hospital room in light blue [32]

Ill people with typhus:
mostly claim for a light green of spring. With this color a new reconstruction of forces is connected.

Suffering children without force:
want the whole scale of spring colors.

Children with a rachitis are recovering fast in rooms with spring colors, when at the same time is also a supply of darkest violet by corresponding pains in the sun bath. This is the indication of color searcher Ewald Paul. There is also a healing effect by invisible ultra violet radiation of a quartz lamp.

Ewald Paul wrote a little booklet "Light and colors in the service of the people." [web15]

Lethal rates can be managed according to the color of the room: Indications by engineer F. E. Schillinger and Prof. Finsen
There are the following results with experiments with colors in hospital rooms:
-- in a room with 11 patients in rose color are dying 3 patients
-- in a room with 9 patients in a bluish gray are dying 6 patients
-- and in a new room with walls in a strong yellow, with stripes in orange on the ceiling on a bright blue background there is not dying anybody. This combination of colors is mentally totally exciting so nobody dies.

The prism with 12 color grades
The color prism is parted into 12 color grades like in a chromatic musical scale, or like a calendar with 12 months.

Colors with mutual undulations: pairs of color
"Pairs of colors" correspond to a distance of a fifth in the prism: blue-yellow, orange-blue. The distance of the fifth corresponds to the phenomenon of the resonating tones of the scale of harmonic series etc.

Color therapy in prisons

There is the clear thesis of Prof. Ewald Paul: Just in prisons should be applied the color psychology educating the captives right as the colors also have effect on mentally ill people reviving their lives.

Prison in gray, for example the prison
                          "Waaghof" in Basel Prison in gray, for example the prison "Waaghof" in Basel. As it seems Swiss responsibles have no idea at all about colors. There is only gray supporting negative energies [33]

Effect of colors in prisons according to Prof. Ewald Paul

-- Blue is giving a reminder of sky, of luck, and of love
-- dark green and green of trees gives the people the reminder of billiard tables and ambition of play
-- red provokes a general unrest with passion
-- orange color provokes that the captives are thinking about business and past, making projects for the future, there is a desire for freedom, and there is also an impatience
-- changing again to blue colors this impatience is converting into devotion
-- gray is provoking to think at common things of all day life, people are thinking of people who have big problems with themselves with split identities. The direct line of thinking is lost. The captives are getting tired and are waiting for a better mood with beautiful colors.

[Well, now one can see what is going on in schools in Switzerland when the school building is only of gray concrete which is so loved by the architects. The children get tired and are waiting for better times. The children feel themselves like in a badly managed prison].

Prof. Ewald Paul has more information about detainees in prisons:

Well loved are flower colors of the park of the prison, above all the colors of pansies.

Add to all the ugly and dark gray colors have a dominating effect and this provokes that loneliness is unbearable.

Dark blue: The captives develop a shy behavior without courage.

                          is the court of the prison on the prison
                          island of Alcatraz near San Francisco This is the court of the prison on the prison island of Alcatraz near San Francisco [34]. More desolate a prison cannot be, and corresponding to this desolation will also have been the mental energy. In 1963 this prison was shut.
                          inner prison court (walking court) of the
                          prison of Garsten in Austria The inner prison court (walking court) of the prison of Garsten in Austria [35] with lawn, benches and paths in a spiritually inspiring circle (mandala) with little flowerbeds.
Prison court of Stuttgart
Prison court of Stuttgart Stammheim [36] has got a playing field for energy. Mental training and change of energy into mental energy does not seem to be present here.

Harmful colors for prisons
Harmful for prisons are principally dark colors, brown colors, gray colors, also dark green, dark blew, black and violet. The consequences can be:
-- depression with the patients
-- bad and melancholic moods
-- and there are also different reactions: some are dissatisfied, others are contemplative, others are quarrelsome.

Beneficial and cheering colors for prisons [and this also counts for all other homes and buildings]
-- a beneficial and cheering effect have sky blue, beautiful spring green, yellow, orange, wine red, rose etc.
-- nervous and slightly excitable prisoners can be calmed and refreshed well by fresh, yellowish spring green, and the sockets can be in a strong green, and all in all also other bright colors are possible.

                          prison cell in pastel colors A prison cell in pastel colors [37] has got not only a comfort impression but the captive can think better about elements of his soul which were perhaps missed since years: peaceful "domesticity".

When mental training and psychological treatment would be standard in prisons, so the combination with the colors could have a really good effect lowering the crime rates. With the colors alone the work is not be done to convert the criminal habits of the detainees. There has to be a common work with color therapy, mental training and psychological assistance, but this combination is missing in the prison system of "civilization" until today. Until today, the conversion of the mental capacities of the culprits is undertaken only after the stay in prison, and this is a huge loss of time, and it comes too late.

Mentally ill persons

The effect of the colors is proved with mentally ill persons by experiments. Considering general health of the state gray or dark prison cells should be abrogated.

Dr. med. Georg von Langsdorff was one of the pioneers for color therapy

Georg von Langsdorff, he was a German medical doctor (1822-1921) [web07] going on with Brabbit's ideas for a color therapy [web08]. In the 1890s he developed a color therapy, and the central colors for him were blue and red. For that he used "chromo lenses" which were filled with a liquid [web09]:

The successes of Langsdorff with his color therapy were just wonderful. The detections were the following ones:

Red light [38]
has the effect of extension of vessels provoking more blood circulation
Blue light [39]
has got the effect of restrictioning the vessels provoking lack of blood so the skin is not sensible any more.
Blue light

Application of blue light in dental works with the dentists

Blue light radiation can be applied with short operative actions for example hindering toothaches.

Rejuvenating cure with color therapy: Dr. Sciascia

The main detection of Dr. Sciascia was the partition of color radiations into

-- cold color rays: green, blue, violet
-- warm color rays: red and yellow.

Sciascia was treating patients with color light devices, also rejuvenating procedures.

enlargeDr. Antonino Sciascia, monument in Canicattì (southern coast line of Sicily)
[40, 41, 42]

Dr. Sciascia (1839-1925) [web12] was a medical doctor from Sicily treating his patients with colors. For his therapy he used a color light machine ("photo canter") also proceeding rejuvenating procedures. Sciascia was adored as a "faith healer" [web10]. Sciascia was the inventor of light therapy and reported about it in 1892 at the 13th Opthalmologic Congress in Palermo and in 1894 at the 11th International Medical Congress in Rome. But in 1903 the detection was attributed officially to Niels Ryberg Finsen who got the Nobel Prize for it. In Palermo Dr. Antonino Sciascia is kept in all honors. Also his lens is well conserved with which he was executing his heliotherapy [web11]. Pietro Macaluso wrote a book about Dr. Sciascia: "The reasons  for Sciascia - chronology of a man to whom was rejected Nobel Prize" (orig. Italian: "Le ragioni di Sciascia - Cronaca di un nobel negato") [12].

And there is more research:

Morchini could watch that needles of steel were converting into magnetic needles when the needles got a 1 to 2 hours treatment half covered and radiated with green, blue or violet color rays.

Red color rays - have the strongest force getting through materials and penetration

-- red for example has got the double wavelength as violet

-- red for humans is a color of movement, ans also the coming and going sun is shining in red, and the circulating blood is also red.

Red rays as healing color
Red can applied as a healing color
-- with all kinds of blocks of moving
-- has got an effect for heart, lung and muscles
-- is recommended with blocks of blood
-- can be applied as a heating technique against colds, also against rheumatism, sciatic and gout
-- and there are successful treatments of skin diseases: scarlet, measles, damages of freeze, eczemas, diseases of larynx, asthma, and against all kinds of paralyzations

Blue color rays as healing color

-- have a calming and cooling effect
-- treatment of nervous troubles
-- healing treatment against insomnia and petulance
-- treatment of troubles with anxiety and fear.

Violet and ultra violet rays as healing colors
-- these rays have a strong healing force
-- the treatment is going on in a change with blue color
-- healing nervous diseases.

Yellow rays as healing color
-- favorable influence against infections of the nutrition organs: stomach, intestine, liver, kidney, milt, urinary bladder
-- the yellow color is the hottest radiation.

Yellow and red in turns
-- is well recommended against paralyzations.

Process of therapy working with humans
-- one can fix colored window panes at the window and let in sun beams to the parts of the body which should be treated
-- the intensity of the effect depends on the energy of the sun respectively depends on the force of the bulb.

6. Changing water by irradiation with colors

There is a detection by Reichenbach: He detected the so called od rays of humans.

These od rays are coming always from humans, are red on one side and blue on the other side. Od rays are also transmittable to the water.

Irradiation of water
-- according to the irradiation by colored energy the water is changing it's taste
-- at the end test subjects could recognize with the taste of the water with which color the water had been irradiated.

[Plants and beings above all are consisting in water, and therefore colors have a big effect on plants and beings. Therefore the color irradiation is principally a "water irradiation". But "normal medicine" does not take this earnest...]

Color healing forces according to Dr. med Dinshah P. Ghadiali
from Spectro Chrome Institute in New Jersey

Dr. Ghadiali is defining illness as a disorder in the machinery of the human organism. Healing is a coming back to the order in the human organism. Order is reinstalled by the application of colored light energy rays.

Colored light has a profound stimulation effect because the different colors have different stimulation effects on the organism and also on psyche and soul.

E. D. Babbit in 1878 is publishing his book about essentials of light and color.
But this book is rejected by the medical doctors in New York. The color science cannot win through in "science".

Searcher Pleasonton in Philadelphia has especially good successes with blue light with flowers and fruits. But Pleasonton's indications are ridiculed by "American" "scientists" as "blue megalomania".

Exhibition "Rays and Healing" (orig. German: "Strahlen und Heilkunde") in Munich 1938
Plants were irradiated by blue, red, green, and yellow light. Rays in blue and ultra violet were a big success.

Exhibition "Rays and Healing"
                          ("Strahlen und Heilkunde") in 1938
                          in Munich, poster Exhibition "Rays and Healing" ("Strahlen und Heilkunde") in 1938 in Munich, poster [43]

<Exhibition "Rays and Healing" Munich 1938 from 2 July until 17 August 1938 in Munich in the Exhibition Park, hall 3, 4, 5 and 6, under the patronage of Gauleiter and state's minister Adolf Wagner.>

(orig. German: <Ausstellung "Strahlen und Heilkunde" München 1938 vom 2. Juli bis 17. August 1938 in München im Ausstellungspark, Halle 3, 4, 5 und 6, unter der Schirmherrschaft des Gauleiters Staatsminister Adolf Wagner.>

It seems strange that there cannot be found anything in the Internet about this pioneering exhibition about healing effect of colors in 4 exhibition halls (!!!). Pharma industry is dominating the world with their chemical pills with propaganda and advertising and manipulations by corrupt doctors and hospitals, and the journalists do not realize it.
