Electromagnetic Therapies

by Glen Swartwout

When I began Vegatesting, I had been practicing other Bio-energetic modalities for several years, notably EAV and Syntonic Optometry. Syntonics is that branch of the health and visual sciences which utilizes the therapeutic effects of visible light frequencies. The term “syntonize” means to balance the tone of the sympathetic and parasympathetic divisions of the autonomic nervous system. Syntonics traces its roots to Harry Riley Spitler, M.S., Ph.D., D.O.S., N.D., M.D., founder of the College of Syntonic Optometry in 1933. His book, The Syntonic Principle, published by the college in 1941 still stands as a work of major importance in the field of phototherapy.

Vegatesting essentially measures the body’s electromagnetic responses to electromagnetic stimuli. The surface of the body has points of differential sensitivity to electromagnetic stimuli. These points correspond closely to many of the classical acupuncture points of TCM and have been mapped extensively as points of electrical conductivity maxima by the EAV school. The eye is the primary sense organ specifically adapted to the absorption and transduction of electromagnetic oscillations (photons). Touch and hearing respond primarily to mechanical oscillations, while taste and smell respond to the chemical realm. Thus the eye can be understood as a highly advanced acupuncture point, where the skin embryologically develops the ability to specifically transmit and focus electromagnetic oscillations via the cornea and crystalline lens. In conjunction with this specialization of the embryonic ectoderm (skin), the neurectoderm (brain) develops an outpouching which forms the retina as the primary electromagnetic receiver of the body. Two thirds of all electrical nerve current (action potentials) transmitted to the central nervous system in humans comes from the two retinae.

When a test ampule is placed in circuit during the vegatest or VBK protocol, it is not necessary for any current to pass through the ampule for the body to respond to the ampule. Only radiant electromagnetic energy (photons) need be emitted by the ampule and received by the body via an optically or electrically conductive media, such as a fiber optic or a wire. Electrons are known to absorb and emit photons. This occurs every time an electron shifts to a different orbital or when a chemical bond is formed or broken. In an electrical conductor, electrons move freely with respect to the matrix of atoms of the conductive substance, such as silver, copper, or aluminum. When these two properties of electrons are understood, it becomes obvious that electrons in the aluminum well of the Vegatest unit are continuously absorbing photons emitted by an ampule placed in the well. These electrons will then travel through the electrically conductive media of the wire, the hand electrode and the body’s intracellular fluids. These electrons will travel down a concentration gradient, forming a wave front of similarly energized electrons when a new ampule is placed in the well. The motion of this wave front phenomenon will exceed the speed of transmission predicted by Brownian (thermal) motion alone due to the extra energy content of the photon absorbed by each electron. The photon may at any time be re-emitted and subsequently absorbed by another electron along its path. In the biological system, there are fewer free electrons, and electron transport occurs mostly by the motion of ions, which of course consist of a nucleus and an electron cloud with unbalanced electrical charges.

It is precisely the wavelength (frequency) and characteristic waveform of the photons received by the body during Vegatesting that carry the specific information to which the body then responds. Research at the Hans Brügemann Institut in West Germany has demonstrated the correspondence between electrical oscillatory frequencies and homeopathic potencies. Matt Van Benshoten, O.M.D., C.A. of California has related photon frequencies (which are much higher than electron frequencies because of the damping effect of the mass of an electron) to homeopathic potencies using Dinshah’s color filters. These results are summarized in Table 1. Note that the biologically active photons emitted by homeopathic remedies are in the visible range of the electromagnetic spectrum.

Table: Energetic correspondence of Homeopathic Potency and Color with Electronic & Photonic oscillations

Tincture (0) 0-100 Hz Red 4.4 x 1014 Hz
3 X 100-250 Hz Orange 4.7 x 1014 Hz
6 X 250-500 Hz Yellow 5.1 x 1014 Hz
8-10 X 500-1,000 Hz
12 X 1,000-2,500 Hz Lemon 5.5 x 1014 Hz
15 X 2,500-5,000 Hz
30-60 X 5,000-10,000 Hz Green 5.8 x 10 14 Hz
100 X 10,000-25,000 Hz
200 X 25,000-50,000 Hz Turquoise 6.2 x 1014 Hz
400 X 50,000-100,000 Hz
1 M Blue 6.6 x 1014 Hz
10 M Indigo 6.9 x 1014 Hz
50 M Magenta*
CM Violet 7.3 x 1014 Hz

10 MM Purple*

*Magenta, Scarlet and Purple are produced by combinations of spectral colors, so a single representative frequency is difficult to assign. Their resonance with higher potencies may be related to higher harmonics of the visible frequencies transmitted by these filters. Note that both color is a subjective (psychophysical) response of the organism, while electron and photon vibrations are objective. Homeopathic potency is objective, yet its importance lies in the field of biological response, which, like color, may vary both between individuals and over time.

Any frequency as represented in Table 1 may act as a carrier frequency for a given characteristic waveform, which determines the information content of the photon. Thus the message and the biological response to a given homeopathic potency (e.g. 30 X) depends upon the substance from which it was produced (e.g. Nux vomica versus Cinchona). There is, however, also a qualitative difference in the organism’s response to different frequencies (potencies) even though they are carrying the same information. Thus a higher frequency, which corresponds to more energetic photons, will affect a deeper and more lasting effect upon the organism. Research by Fritz Popp in Germany has shown that DNA is an extremely good resonator for the storage of photons. This is undoubtedly how miasmatic information is transferred across generations. His research shows a high level of DNA bio-photon interaction in both developmental and degenerative phases of the life cycle as compared to periods of relative biological stability.

Integrating photo-therapy with Vegatesting has brought forth some interesting applications, which have applicability for other Vegatesters. When determining which photon frequency will be effective and tolerated as syntonic photo-therapy, there are a number of color filter testing options which may be utilized, each of which has its own significance and interpretation.

Behavioral Vegatesting is the most direct means to an answer to the clinical questions of tolerance and effectiveness of a therapy. In behavioral Vegatesting, the actual therapeutic stimulation is set up and testing performed simultaneously. The duration of each treatment and frequency of sessions can easily be determined in this way, as well. While this is the most direct and precise method of testing, it is also the most cumbersome clinically. It should however be kept in mind as an important testing alternative. Behavioral testing can easily be applied to other electromagnetic and mental therapies such as MORA, Magnetosette, Rife frequencies, Indumed, therapeutic touch, visualization, affirmation, yoga postures, etc.

In electromagnetic frequency therapies, the frequency may be tested by directing it into one of the wells of the Vegatest unit. This may be done with test vials containing color filter material, or by irradiating and then succussing a vial of alcohol and water. The irradiated sample method works well for testing oscillations such as VDT, color television, sunlight, Ott Light Systems, Vitalight, Neodymium bulbs, standard fluorescent (warm and cool white) and incandescent light. The filter sample method works well for color phototherapies such as Vegalux, Dinshah tonations, MORA Color, Lumatron, and Syntonics. I prefer behavioral testing for specific individualized settings on such instruments as the MORA and Magnetosette, although samples treated with a range of frequencies on the Magnetosette is useful to as a starting point.

Color filters may be interposed between a sample and the test well in order to isolate the harmonic frequencies of that substance which are effective and tolerated. For example, you are testing a Chinese herb combination that you would like to use with the patient and you find it is tolerated but not effective. Placing a Lemon filter under the bottle results in both tolerance and effectiveness. You thus prepare a 12 X homeopathic potency of the remedy to dispense to the patient. In my practice I use the color filters in this way, together with the Injeel forté test set from BHI when I need to test a homeopathic remedy which I do not have in stock.

Occasionally, I utilize a color filter box which fits over the entire Vegatest well, to illuminate a remedy with that frequency. Specific energizing of a remedy can increase its effectiveness. If this is found to be the case, specific phototherapy with that frequency would be given in coordination with dosing of the remedy. The total blood volume of the body passes through the eyes in less than 40 minutes, and only in the eyes is the blood exposed directly to the full visible spectrum of electromagnetic quantum energies. Because each mineral, vitamin, hormone, enzyme and toxin has a unique electron configuration, it has a unique signature in the electromagnetic spectrum. This is how we identify an unknown chemical in the organic chemistry lab, the minerals in a hair sample or the composition of a distant star. Our own sun’s light, when viewed through a prism to separate the various frequencies, is seen to have black bands, called Fraunhofer lines, which are especially prominent for Hydrogen, Calcium and Sodium. This is because of the prominence of those minerals in the sun’s atmosphere. The black absorption bands are precisely the same frequencies that those substances will emit when energized, such as the well-known Sodium D line. This is the emission/absorption spectrum of each substance, which represents those specific quanta of photon energy which the electrons of that substance can interact with in changing orbitals (energy levels). By energizing the electrons of Zinc, for example, with Turquoise light, the biological activity of a Zinc atom is increased several hundred percent instantaneously. According to Nobel prize winner, Albert Szent-Gyorgi, enzyme activity levels are specifically increased and decreased by the color of light with which they are illuminated. He has found that vitamins and hormones are similarly affected by color. Ultimately, even solid matter is, as another Nobel Laureat, physicist David Bohm, puts it: “frozen light.” Of course, it is the light that is active as photons which is the most dynamic, including in the biological system.

: Color & Light:

Color and light are intimately related to electromagnetic stress. The visible octave of the electromagnetic spectrum is the one to which we are most sensitive. Our ability to receive appropriate light information and energy stimuli from our environment is a key factor in the regulation of every cell in the body.

Melatonin, the hormone produced by the pineal in response to the light dark cycle, goes to every cell in the body. When regulated properly by environmental light, it is the most potent force know for longevity and prevention of cancer. Misregulated, it can actually promote cancer.
Color has been shown to shift the balance of the autonomic nervous system, which innervates every organ in the body. This dual control system consists of the parasympathetic division and the sympathetic division. This system can become imbalanced by environmental stimuli such as EMF, artificial light and other stressors.

The individual can also adapt to acute and chronic stresses in an attempt to maintain homeostasis. This imbedded adaptation is another major cause of imbalance, because it interferes with the ability to respond optimally even to a stress free environment.

Note the types of dysfunctions which are produced by imbalances in the sympathetic and parasympathetic nervous systems as listed in Tables 1 and 2. The first table shows symptoms related to overactivity of the parasympathetic nervous system. The second shows symptoms of an overactivity in the sympathetic branch of the autonomic nervous system.

(Andrew, R.J., Beyond Disease, The Energy Economics of Preventive Health, (Reno, NV: Earthly Promotions, 1983))

Some of the conditions known to be strongly stress related are:

  • Accidents
  • Addiction (e.g. nicotine, caffeine, sugar)
  • Alcoholism
  • Allergies
  • Anti-social behavior
  • Anxiety
  • Arthritis
  • Asthma
  • Back pain
  • Cancer
  • Chronic viral syndromes

Table 3 lists some of the most common stress related diseases. It is estimated that 85% of all disease is related to stress as one of the principal triggers. Table 4 outlines the portion of the electromagnetic spectrum which we call light, from ultraviolet to visible light through infrared, along with new interferences now present within those frequency ranges.

An Integrated Approach to Color Therapy

A complete set of 12 color filter combinations is available for those wishing to practice this art for themselves or as an adjunct to their practice. Another available format is a set of 9 color therapy glasses and 7 clip-ons. Green can also be used as a sunglass. Other colors are recommended for use 20 minutes once or twice a day outdoors (e.g. walking, reading, playing), by a window, or in full spectrum indoor lighting. Warm colors are often used early in the day, while cool colors are often used before bed. Several forms of color therapy in use at Remission Foundation are described here.

To find out which color or combination of colors is most safe and effective for you to use in self treatment at any given time, contact Remission Foundation for a Biofield Analysis test kit. This will give you all the materials we need to evaluate your responses to the various color frequencies, as well as to a broad array of nutrients, foods, herbs, homeopathic remedies and other potential nutritional and energetic support modalities. You will get a report describing your major stress factors and how they can be supported or eliminated at this time.

The purpose of this method is to help you eliminate enough stressors and receive enough support for you physiological priorities, that you can accomplish completion of your top priorities at this time. Your system will then be free to identify and prioritize its next set of goals to bring you closer to balanced and optimal health and performance.

Do be sure to specify in your cover letter to Remission Foundation that you specifically are interested in any information on your responses to color and light, as there are so many areas covered in this approach. Otherwise, we will simply follow our normal testing protocol which will not always lead in the direction of color therapy.

It is important, also, to realize ahead of time that we may find either that color is not an effective modality for your present situation, that you need to combine color with other methods, or that your system is so toxic that light stimulation would actually be contra-indicated at this time, until preliminary detoxification relieves the burden on important intra-cellular photo-electric transport systems, especially in the mitochondria.

Syntonics is the optometric use of color through the eyes to improve visual health and fitness. If you experience problems with your eyes or vision that are not solved by the usual means, this is an excellent visual therapy to turn to. These frequently misunderstood problems often relate to poor or distorted ability to effectively receive the colors of the electromagnetic spectrum. Referral to the nearest qualified practitioner is available by writing to the College of Syntonic Optometry.

If this therapy is not yet available in your area, locate the nearest behavioral optometrist for more traditional approaches to vision therapy through the Optometric Extension Program Foundation International (Optometric Extension Program Foundation International, 2912 South Daimler Street, Santa Ana, CA 92705-5811, phone 714-250-8070) or the College of Optometrists in Vision Development (Dr. Robert Wold, Secretary, College of Optometrists in Vision Development, 353 H. Street, Suite C, Chula Vista, CA 92010).

The traditional vision therapy approaches have been shown to enhance color receptivity and discrimination when approached as a learning process rather than an exercise (Swartwout, J.B. and Swartwout, G.M., Color Perception Changes Following Vision Therapy, in Procedings of the 1988 Northeast Vision Conference (Lebanon, OR: Caryl Croisant, 1988). Eye exercise per se has been associated in the research more with actual decreases in light receptivity and integration.

Because vision is the dominant sense for humans, and because it is also our most sensitive electromagnetic reception system, increased development and flexibility of this system through Vision Therapy or Vision Fitness programs reduces the total electromagnetic stress (Swartwout, J.B., Optometric Vision Therapy, Introduction to Behavioral Optometry, (Santa Ana, CA: Optometric Extension Program Foundation, 1977); Swartwout, G.M., Vision Improvement audio tape and materials, (Remission Foundation, 1991)). Vision Fitness programs are available through Remission Foundation.

Neurosensory Development is a method of color therapy utilizing the Lumatron instrument developed by Dr. John Downing. More information on instruments and practitioner certification is available through Remission Foundation or the Downing Institute (Downing TechniquePractitioner Certification Training Manual, San Francisco, CA: Downing Institute, 1989).

Spectro-chrome is a system of color therapy in which the color is applied to the body rather than to the eyes. Magenta is often indicated on the body in cases of electromagnetic stress. It is especially beneficial over the chest and low-back. It helps the body to minimize the circulatory effects of electromagnetic stress.

Color Therapy Eyewear is available in the form of clip-ons to wear over eyeglasses as well as several styles of glasses. The colors available are:

  • Red
  • Orange
  • Yellow
  • Green
  • Blue-Green (glasses only)
  • Blue
  • Indigo
  • Violet
  • Magenta (glasses only)
  • Yellow-Green (Lemon) is produced in the Color Therapy Eyewear system by combining a clip-on with glasses, one being yellow, the other green. Purple and Scarlet (Ruby) are not efficiently accessed with this system.

Bathe Your Body in Water-Colors

Hydrotherapy tubs are now available with built-in color therapy. Colors can be set to rotate through the spectrum, or set at a particular therapeutic color. One such unit is the HydroSpa, manufactured in Australia, using Japanese technology. As with most color therapy instruments, the colors are most effective in a completely dark room.

Avoid extensive use of yellow and orange as they can often be too stimulating, leading to an increase in inflammatory symptoms.

Environmental Lighting

Dr John Ott has developed state of the art full spectrum lighting which simulates a solar spectrum. These lights are specifically designed to eliminate the electromagnetic stress caused by the imbalanced visible spectrum emitted by all standard incandescent and fluorescent lights. They also eliminate harmful frequencies outside the visibel octave, by special built-in shielding and grounding (Facts of Light, Santa Barbara, CA: Ott Light Systems, 1988).

If you can’t get Ott lights, you may be able to install your own shielding, using chicken wire over the whole fixture and lead tape over the starters at the ends of the bulbs, and then grounding all of this. The one limitation with most fluorescent lights (but not the Ott lights) is that the light emitted is still going on and off at 60 Hz. Because flickering light like this uses more nutrients in the retina, people with light sensitivity problems may still experience symptoms. Other support is then certainly needed.

Another alternative for better indoor lighting is various balanced spectrum incandescent bulbs. Some of these (e.g. Chromalux) use a purplish Neodymium coating inside the bulb (deficient in the yellow green ranges), while others appear slightly blue. These lights do not contain the ultraviolet portion of the full solar spectrum, nor are they energy efficient. They do present a more balanced visible spectrum of light (compared to standard incandescents and fluorescents) for reduced electromagnetic stress, however.

Table 5 outlines some of the specific physiological effects of various colors on the 5 body systems. The 5 body system model, developed by the author, is a systematic way of understanding the body’s functional systems in a unified way without oversimplification. It is based on embryological tissue layers, after the observations of the famous 20th century European homeopath Dr. Reckeweg. Because it is a simpler model than Reckewegs, it finds broader application as both an introductory level model for clinicians, as well as a useful model for the general public to understand and regulate their own health maintenance.

System 1, Flow, involves the deepest tissue layer, which produces the urogenital system and the muscles. System 2, Support, involves all of the connective tissues, which includes the cardiovascular system, the immune system and the skeletal system.

Color & Light: Stress

Night lights, flashlights, and the use of other lighting during the night disrupts the normal function of the biological clock, suppresses the pineal gland, and its hormone melatonin which is the only hormone that regulates every cell in the body. You should use a red filter over any night light or flashlight and avoid turning on or leaving on any lights to eliminate this suppression of pineal function . Normal pineal function is strongly linked to normal maturation and longevity, while pineal suppression is linked to early maturation and degeneration, including cancer.

TV is a major source of both electromagnetic stress and light stress. Time Magazine recommends sitting “at least 10 feet from the television set.” Also, by reducing the number of hours you watch per day, you decrease the chronicity of the exposure, and therefore, the associated risk goes down as well. Color television sets emit more EMF than do black and white sets, yet even the black and white t.v.s have been associated with 2.5 times the risk of leukemia among children (University of Southern California study of 464 children, February, 1991).

A color television set, even unplugged, maintains a charge for at least 3 days. Don’t sit closer than 10 feet when watching, and limit your viewing time to less than 2 hours a day. The flicker of the light from the screen is in the alpha brain wave range. This is one of the main reasons that the “boob tube” is so named. By looking at a television picture we are automatically entrained, or electromagnetically forced, into a relaxed, meditative, hypnotic, suggestible state. Also, old color TVs may emit x-rays.

Sunlight in excessive amounts can be received by those who spend many hours outdoors, especially near snow or water, in the tropics, or at high elevation. This not only causes sunburn, but also predisposes to skin cancer and other tissue degeneration. The dark tans some people prize block the normal ability of the skin to produce vitamin D, essential to absorption of Calcium. Much of the damage done is due to the presence of toxic or potentially toxic (phototoxic) synthetic or pharmaceutical compounds not belonging in the body.

The Ultraviolet (UV) part of the solar spectrum includes both ionizing and non-ionizing radiation. Ionizing radiation splits up molecules directly when they absorb its photons, or energy packets. Non-ionizing radiation, in contrast, can only do harm either by building up heat faster than the circulation can carry it away, or by energizing toxic substances present in the body.

The retina in the eye can be most easily burned by heat build-up, when looking directly at the sun, because the macula or center part of the retina has no capillary circulation to efficiently remove excess heat. Sunbathers are 700% more likely to develop skin cancer by eating margarine versus butter. The synthetic chemicals which are not a normal part of the human physiology become more toxic when they absorb light.

Ozone depletion is increasing the amount of UV in the sunlight reaching the surface of the earth. One theory is that this is caused by Chlorinated Fluorocarbons emitted by refrigeration plants, leaking refrigeration systems, and many spray cans. This means that in the future, excessive exposure to sunlight may be even more harmful than now.

The incidence of UV related diseases like skin cancer and cataract may continue to rise. It could become even more important to maintain a truly healthy and clean body, eliminating those toxic and synthetic chemicals from the body which become even more detrimental when energized by the absorption of radiant light energy from the sun.

Ultraviolet light detectors are available. Many eye doctors have them in their offices to check UV absorption of ophthalmic lenses. Some, like the UV Sensometer, are as simple as a card that fits into your wallet. If you use sunglasses, you should have one of these simple, inexpensive cards.
Normally, the pupil of the eye gets smaller in bright light, protecting the inside of the eye from excess UV exposure. Sunglass tints absorb visible light, so the pupil stays larger. If these same lenses do not absorb UV, that means the sunglasses have caused an increase in UV exposure to the delicate tissues of the eye!

Metal eyeglass frames are a common source of interference. The metal connection in these frames short circuits the brain’s hemispheres where a difference exists in the electrical potential of the two sides of the brain. This can contribute to mental confusion and fatigue as well as headaches for those with a strongly dominant hemisphere. It also strongly affects visual functions because most of the neocortex of the human visual system serves vision.
Most metal frames contain toxic metals such as Nickel, which can be leached out of the frame by electrolytic processes, contributing to allergic and toxic reactions.

Optical glass in ophthalmic (eyeglass) lenses may contain Uranium and Thorium, exposing the eye to ionizing radiation that can contribute to cataracts.

Eyeglass prescriptions affect the intensity and distribution of electromagnetic energy on the retina. The retina is specifically designed to receive light which is one octave of the electromagnetic spectrum. The retina is the primary sensory receptor of the body. Each retina has the capacity to send as much information and electromagnetic energy to the brain as all other sensory systems combined. This electromagnetic nerve current is transmitted in the form of waves of electrical action potentials.

Nerve current is what stimulates and regulates the brain and all of its functions. Since 70% of the body’s sensory receptors are located in the retinae of the two eyes, the total nerve current received by the brain is dramatically affected by your lens prescription. The lens prescription which minimizes electromagnetic stress on the retina and brain may not give the sharpest vision. Vision that is too sharp reduces the total information flow and increases stress (Effects of Low Plus Lenses on Reading and Physiological Indicators of Stress, Ph.D. thesis at Indiana University).

Match your activity cycle to the sun: Sunlight out of synchronicity with the biological clock’s rhythm becomes a major electromagnetic stress. This is a major problem for night and swing shift workers. It is also a major element of jet lag. Keeping a regular activity cycle each day is very helpful.

Color-Perception

All but a few individuals labeled ‘color blind’ are actually color deficient. Color deficiency is most common among males, and is a genetically linked inefficiency in the function, typically of the Red-Green discrimination system. The Blue-Yellow system is usually intact. The degree of dysfunction varies between individuals, and can change for a given individual as well, based on clinical observations and studies.

Color discrimination was shown to increase in the course of behavioral optometric vision therapy, as measured on the Farnsworth D15 test(Swartwout, J. B. and Swartwout, G. M.© Improvements in Color Discrimination with Behavioral Optometric Vision Therapy as measured on the Farnsworth D-15 Hue Sequencing Test. Procedings of the NorthEast Vision Conference, 1987). Many cases have been observed over the last 70 years in Syntonic Optometry where color deficiencies have improved with direct retinal color stimulation.
One patient I recall, after 60 years of color deficiency, noticed the yellow lines on the highway became much more vibrantly colored (almost orange, when he had thought them to be a dull yellow) during the course of his light therapy, and the following spring (in Vermont), he found himself experiencing color in with a richness, meaning and depth, as though for the first time. Greens were more green than ever.

For those with severe Red-Green deficiency, a red contact lens may be prescribed for wear on one eye, allowing the individual to learn to discriminate between red and green, since red stimuli will maintain their brightness when viewed through the red lens. Green stimuli will appear darker through the lens than through the fellow eye, providing the opportunity to experience luster on green objects (and not on red ones).

The experience of luster, however, further demands that the two eyes be operating simultaneously and integrating through to the visual cortex level. About one out of three people have significant disruption of this binocular integration process, and show varying degrees of suppression of one, or alternately each eye. In such an instance, I recommend fitting the red lens over the non-dominant (suppressing or ‘lazy’) eye. This utilizes red light’s stimulatory effect on neural and visual functions, as in the nascentizing (one eye red, the other blue) treatments in Syntonic Optometry.
