Q Light Color Light Unit
Colour light treatment
Light and colour contain the primordial information of life on Earth. Organisms and inanimate material either reflect the light according to their condition or filter certain colours, so that oscillations develop, which can be perceived by suitable sensory organs. Our eyes convert radiation energy of colours into chemical energy. Like vitamins also pure colour light can strengthen resistance. Effective colour light baths with monochromatic light refuel the soul and reanimate the immune system.
Not only modern alternative medicine valuates color light therapy as one of the best and most efficient supportive treatments; ancient Ayurvedic medicine, Chinese medicine, Hippocrates, Paracelsus and Goethe ascribe healing effects of colour and light.
Colour light therapy is based on different experiences and findings, which nowadays are to be found predominantly in naturopathy or in complementary medicine. History of colour light therapy dates back thousands of years. The Egyptians built colour temples with seven different colour rooms for this purpose. Depending on the needed colour, the patient was brought into one of these rooms in order to take a healthy colour bath. Also the old Chinese used colours for therapeutic purposes. For example they painted intestine patients yellow and let the daylight penetrate into the room through yellow curtains. Epileptics were set on violet carpets while the windows were covered with violet veils. They wrapped scarlet fever patients into red robes; left them in a room lined with red cloths and irradiated them with red light.
The poet Johann Wolfgang von Goethe was one of the first in the European civilisation to study the effects of colour on the human psyche. In 1810 he published “Zur Farbenlehre” (“About Chromatics”). He considered this book his life work and more significant than his literary publications. Goethe developed the first scientific chromatics and defined physiological effects as sensations of the eye.
The Danish physician Niels Ryberg Finsen won the Nobel Medicine Prize in the year 1903 for his development of an ultraviolet lamp to prognosticate skin tuberculosis and other skin diseases. From numerous other sources further findings are available particularly on an empirical base, e.g. from Dr. Dinshah Ghadiali, who performed his first experiments with colour light by placing a coloured glass bottle in front of a light source and who discovered water irradiated with coloured light to have the same effect as the direct colour irradiation.
World War II and the destruction of the German colour research institute in Munich stopped all scientific studies on colour in Germany. Despite the worldwide success of treatment and prophylaxis with colours, scientists and universities ignored this type of treatment for a long time.
In the last decade of the 20th Century the interest in this natural remedy gained momentum. Many old naturopathic documentations turn up again and the pioneers of the so-called “chromo biology” or “colour therapy” are remembered.
Taking into consideration both proven experiences and latest findings Q.Light Products AG started to develop modern engineering to develop the Q.Light light products. The sense of sight is the strongest of all human senses, digesting approximately 83 % of all sensory perceptions. However we need only ca. 25 % of the light entering through our eyes for seeing. The predominant light energy serves other purposes, which are not scientifically investigated to the last extent yet. This is where colour influences our mind and well-being as well as many body functions. Wherever and whenever colour comes across, we notice it, consciously and unconsciously. They say that body, spirit and soul correspond to the three basic colours red, yellow and blue, as do the elements oxygen, carbon and hydrogen. Colour is omnipresent. It is known from complementary medicine, that colours penetrate the body in different ways to unfold its effects: through the eyes, through food (e.g. in fruits, salad, vegetables), through the skin (by clothes, irradiation, bath).
According to latest research the skin is in the position to perceive colour oscillations and to transmit the effects inside the body. There are particularly sensitive skin areas and points, most of them being the well-known acupuncture points. After several years’ work a Russian research team reported to have successfully proved that there are conduction lines for light in the human body, which exactly correspond to the course of those meridians known in traditional Chinese medicine. They say that coloured light is indeed capable to transmit energy and information into the body and thus to adjust dis-balances on Qi meridians. Light energizes non-specific processes on the skin easing and counteracting disease symptoms and stimulating the endogenous resistance and regeneration.
The success of colour therapy could be explained like that: Illness is a sign of deficiencies in organ cells; specific vibrations equivalent to waves of the colour light spectrum correspond to waves of the colour spectrum. If the missing oscillations are replenished by colour irradiation, the lack is balanced and the organ can increase its performance again. It is even possible to optimize the success of colour light treatment by training colour sight and colour feeling.
