This separation into color subranges has deep
physical sense. The reason is that each particular wavelength
corresponds to a precisely defined energy of light quantum. In this
sense the Red light has the lowest energy of the quantum, the energy of
a Green quantum is higher than the energy of a Red one, the energy of a
blue quantum is higher than the energy of both Red and Green ones.
This fact directly translates into different
chemical activity of different color subranges. The low chemical
activity of Red light is common knowledge, red lamps were used in
photographic dark rooms without doing harm to the photographic film or
paper. Green light is more active than the Red one, but chemical
activity of the Blue is the highest of them all. The chemical activity
of Blue light is so well pronounced, that it was notced by physicians
as early as in late 19-th century. This is when the Russian physician
A.V.Minin introducedinto the practice his Blue Light Lamp, well
remembered by all readers of older generations. Inflammations of ear
and throat were treated with this lamp, it was well known that Blue
light kills germs on the surface of the skin, that if facilitates
healing of blisters, ulcers and wounds. Quite recently it was
discovered that Blue light has a beneficial influence on body's immune
system - later we will talk about this in detail...
Our predatorious tenants
numerous, they are different, but they all share one common property -
they cannot be seen with a naked eye. In short, they are bacteria.
Some of them, strange as it seems, are necessary to us for normal
life activities, mainly those which reside in the gastro-intestinal
tract and help us digest our foods. However, there are also others...
let's speak of others.
These others are known under the generic name
"pathogenes", or in plain English, disease-producing bacteria. We all
heard about the tuberculosis rod, streptococcus, staphilococcus,
pus-producing bacteria, pale spyrochetta, and countless other invaders.
Each one of these tries to seize some place inside the human body,
sprawl the roots and build up its colony. If the body cannot put a good
fight and defeat the invasion, the invaders start poisoning the body
with the products of their metabolism, and a disease occurs.
To get an idea, how the body can be occupied by a
pathogehic bacteria, let's consider two examples. Bacteria in these
examples are very typical, they differ from the rest of the pack
probably only by the fact that they are widespread on all continents,
and corresponding diseases are characteristic for tens of millions of
Example 1. Streptococcus
The most widespread variety is the haemolytic
(destroying the blood) Streptococcus
pyogenes. This is the very same germ which
invades our throats when we have common tonsillitis, and which
continues residing in the soft tissues of the larynx even when there
are no visible symptoms of a tonsillitis. You know it pretty well -
once you have a cold throat, tonsillitis is right here, the tenant will
not miss such a chance! However, would the problem be limited to
tonsillitis, it would be less than half of a disaster...
The real disaster starts when strptococcus becomes
brave enough to venture into an exploratory voyage around the body. In
a normal healthy body such a voyage usually ends when the reckless
voager is killed and eaten by the immune cells of the body - he gets
exactly what deserves, to put it mildly. But if the immune system is
weakened - be it the result of an illness, unhealthy diet, physical
exhaustion or nervous stress - the voyage of our streptococcus might
end up in a new place of habitat for the invader. Most typical of these
habitats - joints, cardiac muscle and gums. Sometimes streptococcus
comes to the extreme and starts its debauche right in the bloodstream,
we call this condition general sepsis or blood infection.
If you ask people suffering from rheumathoid
arthritis, polyarthritis and rheumathoid cardiac problems, in the
majority of cases they will remember, that in their young years as
children and teenagers they frequently suffered from tonsillitis.
Obviously, it doesn't make sense to discuss this topic any longer, the
picture is clear - the predatorious tenant has occupied all the corners
of the house, with the firm decision to make the landlord's remaining
years as miserable as possible.
Example 2. Peptic
It was suspected since longtime ago, that
stomach ulcer and duodenal ulcer both have bacterial origin, but only
towards late 70-s it was proven by australian physician Barry Marshall,
that majority of known ulcer varieties are caused by a specific
bacteria Helicobacter Pylori. Marshall
did prove it by the most direct way possible - he distilled the pure
culture of the bacteria, ingested the liquid containing live bacteria,
waited 3 days until he developed all clinical symptoms of peptic ulcer,
took a course of antibiotic treatment, and observed the disappearance
of all symptoms.
Helicobacter Pylori resides
usually only in one area of the body - in the mucous linings of the
stomach and duodenum. It lives there not on the surface, but under the
protective layer separating the tissues of the stomach from the stomach
chamber. Being thus protected from the etching action of strong acids
contained in stomach juices, the germ starts its own destructive
activity. It releases its own acid and ferments straight into the
tissues of gastrointestinal tract, impedes normal food digestion,
causes pain, and in short, displays the firm decision to
make the landlord's remaining years as miserable as possible.
Despite the firmly established facts, American
medical establishment during more than 20 years successfully barred the
ulcer sufferers from getting the appropriate therapy. Their motivation
is easy to understand - only in USA there are about 15 million people
diagnosed with ulcer, so if those will stop suffering, doctors can
kiss their fees goodbye. Russian "healers" behaved even more
primitively - they just looked in the Americans' mouths, so if
Americans refused to admit the bacterial origin of ulcer, Russians just
echoed. Fortunately, the situation is changing during the last 3-4
years, now bacterial origin of ulcer is recognized by (not yet all,
but) a significant part of practicing physicians.
Seven Troubles - One Answer
We are all accustomed to seeing M.D.-s dripping honey off their
tongues in order to convince the patient that here they have an
exceptional individual program for his treatment, specifically tailored
to combat his and only his individual disease. Naturally, the dumbed
and stupefied patient listens to all this with his ears hanging down,
he cannot take it into his mind that in reality he needs something
The patient wants his health back! He wants his
health back not for a brief interval of time, until the new onset of
the disease, but he wants to do it so that health would be his normal
state, and disease would become a rare exception from the rule. It
would be even better if the attacks of disease itself would become
light and short-lasting, and the body would immediately mobilize itself
to fight the illness.
In order to achieve this goal, our bodies must not
allow inside the kinds of "tenants" described above. Fortunately, our
bodies have this ability, inherited from our ancestors in the course of
many centuries long fight for survival. This ability is called
"Immunity", we get it from our parents at birth, as well as all other
abilities of our bodies. However, it is entirely up to ourselves, shall
we put this ability to good use or not.
Immunity is that universal magic wand, which our
stupefied patient needs above all. Sure, the victim of a car crash
needs urgent surgery, in case of poisoning the first need is an
antidote, and so on. But it is impossible to avoid sepsis in the wound,
to avoid the ulcer disease, to avoid pneumonia, if your immune system
is weakened and cannot close the door to opportunistic infections.
People have discovered a multitude of ways to
strengthen their immune system (and a multitude of ways to harm it and
impair its functioning). To strengthen the immune system, people do
physical exercise, take cold shower, go to steam bath and sauna, eat
garlic, carrots and ginseng, stand on their heads as prescribed by
yoga, follow diets and fasting courses, attend hypnotic sessions, etc,
etc. Lots of different things are done by people full of hope that lo
and behold, after (..., substitute your favorite method) they will
suddenly become healthy and shining, like fresh cucumbers.
Strange indeed it might be, but many of these
methods really work, people really get healthier after applying these
methods to themselves, and then start "religious wars", where each
follower praises his/her own method and denounces all othes as quackery.
I am also only a human being, differing possibly
only in that I am not inclined to blame and denounce other methods of
immune system strengthening. On the contrary, before going over to the
description of Pulsed
Concentrated Solar Light (PCSL) procedures, I should make a remark.
Solar procedures by themselves will result in nothing if the body will
be deprived of wholesome food, if physical exercise will be neglected,
and above all, if the unending nervous stress will be allowed to
maintain its pressure on our lifestyle - the situation too well known
to us, the big city dwellers.
Those who are now under stress, please go take a
sauna, stand on your head by the yoga teachings, relax yourself in a
hypnotic session, and then only, in a peaceful state of mind, return to
How to boost up your immune system
Golden Root, aloe, ginseng, pumpkin seeds and all other onions/garlic
are covered in detail by other authors. Here we will be concerned about
light in general, and Solar Light in particular.
At the origin of Light Healing in medicine there
stands the monumental figure of the Dutch physician,
Nobel Prize winner Niels Finsen.
In 1886 Niels Finsen founded in Copenhagen the
Light-Healing Institute, with the mission "...to study the influence of
light on the animal organism, preferentially with the goal to
practically apply the acquired results to the healing of diseases."
Starting from 1887, Institute conducted a series of experiments in
order to investigate the action of light on different bacteria. It was
found that light slows down the growth of bacteria, and even kills
them, provided the big enough intensity and duration of light.
Concentrated light was found to be especially efficient. The regular
sunlight killed bacteria after 5 hours of exposure, a 900-candle arc
lamp did the same job in 8 hours, and an incandescent lamp - in 11
hours, whence the congentrated light weakened most bacteria in 1
and killed them in 5-7 minutes. Experiments confirmed that it was light
and not heat that acted upon the bacteria. All experiments were
conducted on the bacteria species m.prodigiosus, bac.tiorescens,
bac.colicim, typhoid and anthrax bacilli.
Investigation confirmed that all parts of light
spectrum slow down bacterial growth, but violet and UV light
(wavelengths from 200 nm and shorter) is most efficient in this
respect. Improving the equipment allowed Finsen to shorten the
extermination time of bacteria down to two seconds.
Methods developed by Finsen were used for the
therapy of skin diseases, primarily for lupus (cutaneous tuberculosis,
Lupus Vulgaris), which was traditionally considered to be incurable. In
Finsen's Institute more than 500 people were successfully treated
against lupus. These people had lesions on parts of their faces, on
lips, nose, mucous surfaces, even on extremities. The results of
treatment were so spectacular, that lupus was reclassified into the
category of curable diseases. It is for successful treatment of lupus
that Finsen received the Nobel Prize in medicine in 1903.
Already at that time it was suggested that light not
only kills bacteria, but also stimulates
in body tissues due to
absorption of the external light energy in the body.
This fact was proven in USA when W. Hancock and E.
Knott made their famous experiments with dogs. They infected dogs with
haemolytic streptococcus, and later, when dogs had developed general
sepsis, irradiated their blood with UV light, passing it through the UV
transparent quartz tube connected to blood vessels. The result of this
experiment was spectacular. Dogs died, but their blood was sterile, all
streptococcus bacteria were exterminated. The method worked! The
problem was in finding the safe dose of irradiation.
As it frequently happens, "misfortune brings fortune
on its tail" - during one of experiments the electricity in the
building was cut off when only a mere quarter of dog's blood was
irradiated. The scientists were forced to interrupt the experiment, but
to their surprise, the dog stayed alive and recovered from sepsis. It
turned out that not all blood of the patient needs to be irradiated,
but only a fraction of it.
Soon the experimenters had the chance to verify
their findings in practice. In 1928 they got a patient - a young woman
dying from postnatal sepsis. Antibiotics did not exist at that time, so
only a miracle could save her. And this miracle happened, when she was
injected with 120 ml of her own blood, after that blood was irradiated
with broad-spectrum UV light. The woman fully recovered, and several
years later brought to life 2 more children. This is how this wonderful
method of UV irradiation was discovered and practically proven.
A similar case happened later, in 1933, when a woman
developed sepsis after abortion. Diplococcus and haemolytic
streptococcus bacteria were rapidly multiplying in her blood, and her
life was hanging on a thin thread. She was injected first with 100 ml
of her own blood irradiated with UV light, and with 400 ml more on the
next day. On the 4-th day the testing showed, that her blood did not
contain bacteria any more. The healing was complete!
Impressive results of these experiments not only did
raise hopes, but also raised new questions. Why did these women
recover? Not all their blood was irradiated, but only 1/50 part of it,
1/10 part at most. It is well known how quickly the bacteria multiply,
hence the remaining bacteria should promptly make up for the losses,
even if all bacteria in the irradiated blood were exterminated.
Here we come again to the importance of the proper
functioning of the immune system. It is our immune system that reliably
protects us from the invasion of any foreign bacteria. There exists the
opinion that many infectious diseases are caused primarily not by
bacteria and viruses (these are always abundant in and around us), but
by failures and errors of our immune protection. There is another, not
less important function of our immune system - it maintains the
"wholesomeness" of our bodies, meaning that it exterminates our own
cells, when they deviate significantly from standard parameters. Some
specialists in oncology believe that on each given day the human body
produces hundreds of virus-infected cells, potentially cancerous. All
these cells are immediately detected and exterminated by killer cells -
the avant-garde of our immune system.
So now here is the situation when suddenly a portion
of blood is subjected to massive irradiation with the chemically active
light. Frankly speaking, we can visualize the process as if the
absorbed quants of light give a violent "push" to the sleeping immune
system, dramatically stepping up its activity. All other therapeutic
effects are merely the consequences of this intensive activity. In
particular, it is the immune system, not light radiation by itself,
which exterminates all pathogenous bacteria in the bloodstream.
Unfortunately, the interrelations between the
different cells of immune system (and there are many of them!) are very
complex and intertwined. It is highly improbable that some simple model
can be built which would describe the immune system response to UV
light radiation. A plethora of parameters recorded by scientists all
speak about the same thing: following the UV irradiation the immune
system switches to emergency mode of functioning. In particular, there
is some 50% increase in fagocytosis speed in lymphocytes, fermentative
activity and hormone secretion increases, number of lymphocytes in
blood rises about twice, fibrinolytic activity increases (blood clots
and thrombes are dissolved), blood microcirculation is improved,
intensity of many bioenergetic processes increases. UV radiation
response is manifested in better oxygen absorption in blood, increased
resistanse to infections, adrenaline and cholesterol contents are
normalized. Even the DNA repair rate is improved following UV blood
irradiation! As a result we see miraculous therapeutic effects.
And finally here are some exceptionally good news
for the readers. Recently - just 6-8 years ago - it was discovered that
UV radiation is not absolutely necessary, the visible light is fully
adequate for the purpose. It turned out that blue and violet light can
cause the same impact on the blood as UV does, at the expense of
somewhat higher dosages. This means that we can use some simple
household items in order to achieve right at home practically the same
results, which are achieved by physicians in their laboratories with
the help of specialized expensive equipment.
At Home, at the Beach, anywhere
To make a
long story short, we are going to use the natural free Solar Light in
order to arrange the irradiation of our own blood. First question is,
do we need to do anything at all? Maybe, it is sufficient to go out to
the beach or to the backyard and expose our bodies to these vitalizing
Solar Rays? Frankly speaking, for many people this will already be
better than nothing, however we will go ahead, and pursue some more
efficient way, which will be just as simple.
Here we must keep in mind that Solar Light
penetrates the human body only to a very small depth. The green light
penetrates only to 3-4 mm, the blue light to 1.5-2 mm, UV penetrates
even less than that - less than 1 mm. True, the red light penetrates to
15-20 mm inside the human body (this is why if we place the palm of the
hand between the Sun and the eye, we can see red light passing through
the palm), but due to its low chemical activity the red light does not
produce such a stimulating impact as green, blue and UV.
For blood irradiation to be successful, it is
necessary to surpass some threshold intensity of this radiation. When
blood flows in the laboratory across the quartz tube and is directly
irradiated by some mercury-discharge UV lamp, it is easy to make the
intensty of radiation many times higher than the threshold. However,
the Solar Radiation is absorbed in the skin and in subcutaneous
tissues. When the rest of it reaches the blood, it does not reach the
threshold intensity. You can easily understand that if the threshold is
not surpassed, you can irradiate yourself fron sunrise to sunset - the
only result will be skin sunburns.
It is very easy to increase the intensity of Solar
Light - just to concentrate it with a lens or with a mirror. If it is
possible to find a condensing lens with a diameter of 15-20 cm, this
will be quite good for the purpose, however, such lenses are not common
in our households. On the other hand, a concave cosmetic mirror of this
size can be found practically in any house.
Usually these mirrors are made 2-sided, one
side is flat, the opposite is concave. The concave side can gather all
the Solar Light from its surface into a small "focal spot",
dramatically increasing (up to 1000 times) the intensity of the light.
Really, when the 150 mm mirror concentrates all the Solar Light from
its surface into a 5 mm spot, this translates into a 900 times increase
So now the threshold intensity, which the ordinary
Solar Light could not surpass, is no challenge for Pulsed
Concentrated Solar Light (PCSL).
Why is it "concentrated", is obvious - it was collected, concentrated
by the mirror. Now in this definition we must
understand the significance of the word "pulsed", where it comes from
and why is it necessary.
It s quite obvious, that if the Solar Light is
concentrated on a small spot of the skin, the temperature there will
soon rise to such an extent, that it will burn a hole through the
skin... By this virtue the lighted spot must be moved along a cetain
path, so that the possibility of local overheating will be avoided.
Accordingly in each spot along the path moments of high
light intensity will be interspersed with moments of low light
intensity, that's where "pulsed" comes into being. The following
picture shows a practical procedure of irradiation for the forearm and
elbow joint, where the blood vessels come close to the skin, and where
we can do the "through-the-skin" irradiation of the blood.
parameters: mirror diameter 16 cm, focal length 40-50 cm (sometimes
branded as 3x mirror), hot spot diameter 0.5-1 cm, the spot oscillates
between the wrist and elbow bend approximately at 1 full cycle per
second. This procedure can be done without assistants, with your left
side turned towards the Sun (if you are going to irradiate your left
arm), or with your right side towards the Sun (you take the mirror in
your left hand and irradiate your right arm).
This general setting can be modified in order to
irradiate the knee bends from behind, the chin and throat area, and
even the area between the legs. In all above cases it will be better to
do the procedure with the help of an assistant. The cases of lesions,
cuts, wounds, pustulas, etc may require some individual invetiveness
and extreme caution. Remember always that it is YOUR body, do your best
in order not to harm it with careless application of this very POWERFUL
Getting Started. How to start? First, ask yourself the question
- are you ready or not? Certainly you arre ready to apply the PCSL
method to yourself - no doubts about it - but are you ready to do it
quietly and slowly, start with very small dosages, increase dosages
step by step, and above all, not to expect any quick miracles?
Are you prepared to the fact that Sun will not come
out on clear sky each day, so that you would miss the planned exposure
Are you ready that in the beginning stages you will
feel worse instead of feeling better? This fact is so important and so
unexpected for the majority of enthusiasts, that it deserves special
detailed consideration. It was already said more than once, that
pathogenous bacteria intoxicate the human body with the products of
their metabolism. Now it is the right time to stress the fact that
these toxic products are released into the body not only during the
life of bacteria, but also at the moment of their death. This is
natural, since at the moment of death all toxic substances contained in
the bacteria are released and go inside the human body, bloodstream and
other places. Thus, if our immune system starts working at higher
speed, the massive death of bacteria follows, increased amounts of
bacterial toxins are released, and our body will feel very very bad.
Increased amount of bacterial poison may result in the sensation that
healing is worse than disease itself. This phenomena was discovered in
medicine already more than a century ago, and has a special name "Herxheimer Syndrome" by the name of
the German physician who first described it. So if your body hosts
streptococcus, who reside in your heart muscle, don't be surprised when
after PCSL irradiation you will feel increased heartbeet, fever and
shortage of breath. This will be the final greeting that the dying
streptococcus army will send you from their common grave.
Finally, if you are ready and understand what you
are doing, roll up tour sleeves above the elbows (just like that!), go
out into the backyard, parking lot, or other sunny place, take the
mirror into your right hand, turn your left side towards the sun, and
start according to the last picture. The better you focus the solar
light spot, the deeper will the light penetrate your veins and
capillaries, the more efficient will be the session.
Keep a moderate speed of the spot movement, about 1
full cycle per second, make a full swing from the wrist to the elbow
bend and back. Do not start with a big dosage, do about 30-40 swings on
your left arm, then same number on the right arm, for the first day it
will be sufficient. In the following days increase the dosage in
increments of 15-20 swings per day, until you reach 180-200
per each arm.
If at any day you will experience the "Herxheimer Syndrome" (short breath,
increased heartbeat, aching sore joits, problems with digestion,
stomach cramps, etc), do a 3-4 days break. Then restart with the last
dosage where you had no adverse symptoms, slowly increasing the dosage
in following days. Be careful and pay attention to reactions of your
Eventually you will come to the moment when you will
receive 180-200 swings per arm without any adverse sensations (possibly
not each day, but once in 3-4 days). Now you can add the underknee
bends to the irradiated areas, you can start directly with 100 swings
per side, decreasing the dosage on the arms also down to 100 swings.
Further progress depends on your needs. Some of you
will stay in this mode and do regular irradiations, provided that
weather is favorable for such exploits. Others will put the mirror back
into the dark corner of the drawer, and will take it out only at
moments of emergency. Still others will irradiate some particular body
areas - joints, pustulas, cuts, bruises, lesions, chin area (especially
with sore teeth and gums).
I wish good health to all of you!
