Light therapy or Phototherapy consists of exposure to daylight or to specific wavelengths of light using lasers, light-emitting diodes, fluorescent lamps, dichroic lamps or very bright, full-spectrum light—by a so-called light box. The light is administered for a prescribed amount of time and, in some cases, at a specific time of day. Light therapy directed at the skin is used conventionally to treat acne vulgaris and neonatal jaundice. Light therapy which strikes the retina of the eyes is used to treat circadian rhythm disorders such as delayed sleep phase syndrome and can also be used to treat seasonal affective disorder [SAD], with some support for its use also with non-seasonal psychiatric disorders.

With the use of various natural agents in the treatment of disease, light has through the ages played a prominent part. The ancient Egyptians who worshipped their sun-gods, among whom Ra was preeminent, erected temples to these gracious deities, as did later the Babylonians. There is evidence that even 4000 years ago many were worshipping the sun particularly at times when the photochemical powers were greatest, with the possible inference that this was a factor in the epidemiology of prevalent diseases. Early Biblical peoples, as the Philistines and Israelites, further had a composite God of healing and sun in the person of Baal. From the identification of heliotherapy with a deity to a mere realization of well-being experienced by the exposed individual was the next step in the history of this most interesting curative agent.

The increasing use of sun baths by early peoples was instigated more particularly by the feeling of well-being after exposure than a realization of any specific therapeutic properties. The construction of solaria in Greek and Roman homes and the more pretentious “arenarias” for the exposure of the nude body at the seashore, was carried on because of the pleasure-giving properties of sunlight. Indian medical literature dating to 1500 BC describes a treatment combining herbs with natural sunlight to treat non-pigmented skin areas. Buddhist literature from about 200 AD and 10th century Chinese documents made similar references.

Danish physician Nils Finsen is believed to be the father of modern phototherapy. He developed the first artificial light source for this purpose, and used his invention to treat lupus erythematosus. He received the Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine in 1903.

Since then a large array of treatments have been developed from the use of controlled light. Though the popular consumer understanding of "light therapy" is associated with treating seasonal affective disorder, other applications, growing in recognition include the application of low level laser, red light, near-infra-red and ultraviolet lights for acupuncture, pain management, hair growth, skin treatments, accelerated wound healing. The modalities include light-based acupuncture, directing light on painful areas, blood irradiation therapy and photodynamic therapy.


st PhotoCognitive Therapy (PCT) is a new method of spiritual healing using pulsed, colored light for stress release and enlightenment. Over the past 60 years, neuroscience and psychology has shown that the brain has 'photocells' which convert light into nerve impulses called 'photocurrent.' This current passing through the eyes reaches many important parts of the brain:

1. Visual cortex where it procures sight.
2. Cerebral cortex where it stimulates learning and mental abilities.
3. The Limbic system where is stores and procures emotional
4. The brain stem where it produces coordination and balance.
5. The hypothalamus where it programs the body's biological
rhythms (in essence a neural pacemaker ).
6. The autonomic nervous system where it regulates hormones
from the body's glands.

The biological rhythms regulated by hypothalamic discharges dramatically influence how we feel and function. Light generated photocurrent stimulates the brain's vital energy. Clinical evidence conducted in Europe and Russia suggest that a lack of abundant color rays decreases photocurrent transmission and affects behavior, learning ability, and health. Called by John Ott malillumination syndrome, lack of proper light decreases brain activity and health. (See the author's book PHOTOBIOTICS for more details).

Malillumination syndrome constitutes a variety of problems since so many of the brain's activities are dependent on light:

* Learning disability/deficit * Poor vision
* Color blindness * Overeating & snacking
* Night blindness * Headaches
* Insomnia * Anxiety & nervousness
* Poor concentration * Poor sleep patterns
* Mood swings * Poor self-esteem
* Food allergies * Constipation

The transmission of photocurrent is directly connected to the eyes and exposure to sunlight does not necessarily insure proper color exposure. Sunlight is often filtered through glass, plastic or eyeglasses and therefore modifies or taints incoming rays. Additionally, the light is broad banded, not isolated to one color. Twelve different colors have been found effective in treating malillumination syndrome which reactivates photocurrent reception and transmission. Therapy, in short, must be with monochromatic (colored) light.

Photocognitive therapy is a technique where one administers pulsed, colored light to the eyes, having the person sit comfortably in a darkened room in front of the Suntron (see the author's book- Reading Faces: East & West for more details). This pleasant and relaxing experience usually includes one or more of the following:

1. Gemtherapy since the Suntron uses faceted stones in the color
disks of the machine.
2. Aromatherapy, to enhance desired results.
3. Music therapy.
4. Healing by PhotoCognitive Facilitation.

The number of PhotoTherapy sessions depends upon the extent of the photocurrent deficit and the patient's disorder or level of stress. It can be a little as a few sessions as an aid to relieve stress, making other therapeutics more effective, to as many as 30 sessions for compulsive disorders like addiction, seasonal affective disorder (SAD), neurasthenia, etc.

Visual ray therapy through the eyes began in the 1950's by British optometrist Simpkins. His therapy help many people not only with visual defects but also improved their vitality. Since the late 1960's, many optometrists all over the world have used colored lights on the eyes on thousands of patients with remarkable success.

The stress factors of today's society, especially on today's youth with institutionalized education, telecommunications and mass media presents an ever burdening pressure on the psyche. We all have been secretly hypnotized since birth. Every day, newspapers, radio and television programs, and other people are implanting harmful thoughts and emotional perversions which become deeply embedded into the subconsciousness, should one be out of control of his/her mental faculties, which is typical in children. Inevitably, as adults, we become outer-directed instead of inner-protected. Indirect hypnosis manipulates the minds and behavior of millions of people, leading to destructive behaviors and disease.

From the moment a baby is born, society, family, parents and guardians begin molding the psyche. The moment the infant leaves the womb, he/she becomes recipient to suggested behaviors and habits that will drastically affect his/her future. Experiences, sensations, behaviors, and even conversations are stored in electronic memory banks and result in images and impulses for future reference, action and reactions, and a plethora of compulsive behaviors.

Habits quite simply are acts so frequently repeated that they become almost automatic in performance. Most human beings respond to stimuli in patterns similar to animals in that sensory stimuli set off reflexive behaviors in the nervous system, out of control of superior intelligence factors, unless they develop complete control of their instincts. These are known as conditioned reflexes. These are electronic memories so automatic we call them activated shells. Habits feed on childhood memories and even past-life traumas which act as deep emotional locks which become most difficult to break without strong therapeutics.

The sources of compulsive behaviors can be now readily traced back. We develop a complex of physical and emotional habits which branch out from primitive emotions formed in early childhood or left as residue from genetic memories. Once the soil and roots of these behaviors are identified by the individual, they lose their power over behavior patterns. Total Recall and mental awareness initiates a break in habit patterns, thereby initiating a healing response.

Photo Cognitive Therapy (PCT) is a new method of healing and rejuvenation using pulsed, monochromatic light for optical, resonant induction and procurement of powerful, emotional states. By direct access of activated shells (traumatic memories forcing behaviors in undesirable manners), prior episodes can be accessed and effectively neutralized. Finding a means of accessing these early, uncontrollable feelings - and then altering the dynamic associated with them - has been the goal of nearly all psychotherapies in decades past.

The advent of Photo Cognitive Therapy since 1989, has offered unparalleled speed and ease at which to access these tortuous emotions, in a clinically clean format using a heretofore, unrecognized dynamic - light, instead of darkness. Classical forms of hypnosis requires the subject to close the eyes, in order to drift into lower levels of the sub-conscious. Light impact upon optic nerve, however, allows the conscious mind, to continue its perception. In this zone of awareness - subconscious access, deep impulses can be accessed and effectively encountered neutralized. This remarkable discovery came about quite by accident as a similar device was originally used for improving vision. Upon working with children with learning disabilities, enormous improvement in behavior was demonstrated early on. Upon treating adults, regressive states were so easily accomplished, interactive auditing was began. Revolutionary results followed as interviewing techniques were developed. The colors were amplified with select gemstones adding a more coherent component to the optical pulsation and unlocked the therapeutic power. The results were even more dramatic and conclusive.

The effective feature of Photo Cognitive Therapy is to resolve and heal unwanted feelings. The result is that the adult, in command of their feelings, will be able to experience the child-like feelings as they exist now, and consciously neutralize their dest ructive power and influence over musculoskeletal impulses, oral communications, and faulty autonomic steering of the body's glands and tissue systems. Clean language and interviewing skills of the practitioner, are used to discover and facilitate a change in the patient's deep memory. The end result is the patient instantly feels better. Pains due to psychosomatic control are instantly eliminated. The patient gains an avenue of freedom not realized by an form of medication, even homeopathics.

It has been aptly stated that we are creatures of habit. We develop a complex of physical and emotional habits that foster s health, or leads to its detriment. Both fostering hygiene and health practices the integrity of the body is sustained. Yet today, the average person eats foods that cannot sustain the body biologically leading to gross corpulence, spends fifteen years of time gazing at the television, and engages in conversations littered in vulgarity. Self-preservation becomes overshadowed by subconscious impulses to the point the average person loses control, developing addictive impulses for junk food, over-the-counter drugs and stimulants, and delight in the destructive affairs of others.

From the moment a baby is born, parents and society begin its molding process. Once the power of selection and rejection is lost to the subconscious, desire overpowers logic, bad habits develop into the plethora of destructive lifestyles:

Overeating Smoking

Drinking Negative Thinking

Shopping Talking
Poor hygiene Meddling in the affairs of others

Taking drugs

Physical habits and impulses are the counter side of the way we feel about ourselves. Emotional habits color not only the surface of the personality, but the deeper character as well. People are habitually depressed, habitually evasive, habitually late, habitually disorganized, habitually dishonest, habitually disaster-prone. The list is endless.

Photo Cognitive Therapy is for patients when symptoms which cannot be resolved by other, usual therapeutic approaches. When the origin of the patient's symptoms relates directly to childhood trauma, PCT is indicated. It is of great benefit when pains and discomforts are ongoing and recurs without explanation, even after successful therapy. And it is also greatly indicated when bad habits directly interfere with therapy, as in smoking, drinking, and overeating.

Pulsed light synchronizes the brain rhythms. The recipient is at all times conscious and can claim total recall. The pulsing invokes the void spoken of in Oriental meditation that allows these thoughts to surface into consciousness. The pulse is variable and can thus be adjusted for individual comfort.
