The light affects all living and nonliving objects; plants, animals and man alike. Light is based upon colours. Every matter discharges waves of a particular type. When a metal is placed in the sun, its colour underaoes a change. Some metals are affected, quickly and some take time to be affected; even the colour of gold changes after some time. when placed under the sun.
Life of every living thing is enclosed in a covering of lights. Light has deep effects upon our health.
The, sunlight disperses into seven colours after striking against our conscious. Every man uses these colours. according to his taste and temperament, for creative or destructive purposes. When these lights are used for destructives designs, they produce such a poison. which impedes the construction and the life giving effects of these lights are destroyed.
Red and colours close to it produce anxiety whereas blue and similar colours have soothing effects. Every colour has many shades and tone, which result from various frequencies. Light produces chemical changes. Our feelings also change when the intensity of light changes.
Curative rate of colour therapy is more than any other therapeutic system so far discovered. tested and tried in the history of mankind. This treatment is economical for the patients. If the surgery is unavoidable, treating the patient before and after operation with colours help in success of the surgical operation. Colour Therapy gives best results in treating the heart problems, asthma, malaria and fevers, pneumonia, sore eyes and other infections and, ailments of eyes.
Treatment of Carbuncles using colours is also easier and effective than other therapeutic svstems A lady whose carbuncle had spread from the neck to her lower back, had remained under treatment or ten prominent doctors, after having lost her faith, when started the treatment suggested under this systcm of treatment. she was cured in a few weeks time without having heavy doses of tranquilizers.
In burning cases this system invites every doctor to research. The burning sensation in the burnt part of the body comes toan end in minutes.
The sunlight after its absorption in the body kills the germs. relieves pains. and helps in the formation of vitamin D. which is responsible for maintaining the balance of calcium quantities in our blood, thus, preventing the bone diseases in children
The sunlight is also helpful in healing of wounds as it tights against the infectious substances. After absorbing in the body it helps these substances excrete through natural outlets. It also helps in drying the water that accumulates in the cavities of joints, lungs and abdomen. The sunlight vitalizes the internal organs of the body including the heart and increases
the vital energy of body. which causes the sweating, and the waste materials are excreted. The sunlight improves the mental and nerve working by providing them extra energy. It also corrects the digestive system. increases the appetite and sleep and, helps in overcoming insomnia.
Deficiency of Red Blood Corpuscles occurs in the people who remain in dark or work in an atmosphere where the sunlight is not adequately available, wheres remaining in the sunlight helps in increasing these corpuscles, or to say, the sunlight also
helps in overcoming the anemia.
Even the disease like tuberculosis can be treated successfully by exposing the pauent to the sunravs for few hours daily. The method of this treatment is given as under:
Firs day, the patient is made to expose both the feet. up to the knees. in the sunlight, six to seven times, for five minutes only in each session. Next day, the time is increased to ten minutes for each session, having an interval of 10 to 15 minutes in between. Third and forth day, legs up to the naval point of the patient are exposed in the sun, for six times. ten minutes per session. From the fifth day’ the whole body of the patient is made to remain in the sunlight in such a manner that the patient is exposed to the sun for an average of three to five hours (according to the intensity of the weather), equally divided into four to six sessions, according to the tolerance and general condition of the patient. If, in the first session the front is exposed to the sun then the next session is for the back thus, postures are to be alternatively changed.Head and neck is to be kept covered during these sessions.
This may give us an idea of the energy supplied by the sun that 16-to 26- mega joules energy per sq meter per day is supplied by the sun in the form of radiations of light and heat. The average of this energy for the world is estimated to be 13 mega-joules per square meter per day whereas in Pakistan this average is around 19 mega-joules per square meter per day.
Since excess of everything, no matter how beneficial it might be, is bad, therefore, the utility of the sunlight lasts till the body feels comfort and vitality.
The factor of ultra-violet rays in the sunlight is more in those places where the sun light reaches the earth directly. The ozone layer existing around the earth reflects the ultra-violet rays back and thus stops them from reaching the surface of the earth. If the ozone covering is intact the quantity of ultra-violet rays remains moderate.
If the body is exposed to ultra-violet rays excessively, it can cause cancer, Utmost care must be taken when handling the ultra-violet or infra-red rays. This care is equally necessary for x-ray’s and gamma rays. Excessive exposure to x-rays damages the bone marrow and the bones become tragile, It can result into blood cancers like leukemia etc. Excess amounts of x-rays can irreparably damage the muscles under the skin even to the extent of injuries. These injuries can be treated with violet rays.
TV. and particularly the Coloured ones are more harmful as these emit radio active radiations. TV is like a small x-rays producing unit. Coloured TV is more harmful than the Black and White as it emits more powerful rays. Therefore caution must be exercised while watching the TV. The recommended distance. which is as many feet as wide is the screen of the TV in inches, must be kept for watching TV.
Natural light vs. Artificial Light
Scientific researches have proved that in the pinkish fluorescent tube light, the male plants nurtured well but the female plants withered, In contrast to that. the day light bulbs, which emit bluish light helped the female plants to grow but damaged the male plants.
Growth of plants continues in the electric bulb light but they did not bear flower as early as they do in the natural light.
Animals kept in the tube light reacted almost in the similar manner. Animals kept in natural light had equal numbers of male and female offsprings. Those kept in the pinkish fluorescent light had male but the animals reared under the bluish light had all female children.
Life is growing in natural light since this world has come into being. Plants are preparing food for themselves and the animals using the photosynthesis process. The sunlight is helping the bodies to prepare vitamin D. The light is a mean of sight as well.
Those associated with poultry industry know that the light entering the chicks’ eyes activates the working of their pituitary gland, which helps them to increase their egg production. Not only in the chickens but also in animals and human beings this
gland plays an important role in maintaining the balance in the working of their glandular system.
Glands like thyroid, adrenaline and sex glands, responsible for the secretion of certain necessary fluids in the body, gradually slow down with aging. All these glands are affected by ultra-violet rays and the sunlight
People who have experienced treatment of this therapeutic system talk very high of its remedial and curative system. Fat people got smart and the thin grew bulky and developed their muscles.
In winters the sunlight falls obliquely therefore it is not so strong. Not only in the winter people suffer from the scarcity of sunlight, the people working in offices and factories also suffer from the shortage of the natural light.
Lite originates from lights. light maintains life and finally the life ends in light. Our phy sical and mental health depends upon the balance in the colours and the lights.
