What is Light & Colour Therapy?

Light is:

  • The main source of life
  • The main source of energy

It has been scientifically and medically proven that many diseases and mental disorders are

caused by the lack of light. Today we spend almost 90% of our time indoors, without natural

light. This is highly risky for our health and is the known cause of multiple diseases.

Light is essential to keep healthy and to prevent diseases.

But there is more to BIOPTRON Light:

  • It activates cell growth
  • It improves the body’s defense system
  • It stimulates the whole body’s healing processes

    The successful use of light in medicine has a long history. Ancient civilizations,

    the Greeks, the Egyptians and the Arabs, understood the importance of light and its

    healing effects on our health.

    “Heliotherapy” was the first natural Light Therapy successfully used as an effective

    medical treatment for preventing & healing various medical conditions.

    Hippocrates, a Greek scientist, the father of modern medicine (460BC-370BC)

    used to say:”Vis medicatrix naturae” – Honor the healing power of nature.

Color Wavelengths and Frequencies

Energy is considered to travel in waves. The distance between successive waves is called

wavelength and the number of times a wave oscillates in one second is called frequency.

As per general rule: the longer the wavelength, the lower the frequency. Each color has its

own specific frequency and its individual wavelength. Only a small part of the

electromagnetic spectrum is visible to the human eye.

Violet has the shortest wavelength while red has the longest.
Beyond violet lies ultraviolet which, although invisible to the human eye,

can pass through our body. Ultraviolet provides us with a suntan and kills bacteria.
The longest wavelength at the other side of the spectrum is red.

Beyond red lies infrared followed by

microwaves, radar, radio and television wavelengths, all invisible to the human eye.

Red, orange and yellow, carrying longer wavelengths, seem to reach the eye faster

than the colors on the other side of the spectrum. They are called warm colors as we

associate them with fire and sunshine.

Green, blue and violet are perceived as cool colors.

They travel in shorter wavelengths,

so they seem to take longer to reach our eyes; they bring to mind the water of the

sea and rivers, the sky, the winter dawn.

They are also called receding colors, because of the long time their energy

takes to reach our eyes.

Each warm color has its complementary cool color:

red – blue, orange – indigo, yellow – violet, green – red (magenta).
