AILMENTS SUCCESSFULLY TREATED WITH VIOLET RAYS:
THE HISTORY OF THE VIOLET RAY
Many stories of King Arthur’s court in England are about the Holy Grail. The grail was the cup used by Jesus at the Last Supper. The continental European legends speak of the grail as a stone with spirit. The Parzifal calls it the “lapis electris.” Angels, who were neutral in the strife between God and Satan, guarded the electric stone. The legend of the Holy Grail is a picture of the future of electricity. The divine power can be either a healer or destroyer. Movies show the Frankenstein monster seething with electric currents. The saints and saviors are pictured with a golden electric halo. William Gilbert (1544–1603) became the chief physician to Queen Elizabeth. She had such a good opinion of him, that he was later given a pension to continue his scientific studies. He used the money to buy many rare books and experimental equipment. One was a magnetic lodestone ground into a sphere, which used magnetic needles to show how it mirrored the earth’s field. He showed that friction on glass, sulfur and other substances would generate an attractive power, which he called “electricity.” He named it from the Greek word for amber. In 1897, physicist Joseph Thomson completed the physical side of Gilbert’s work. He made a vacuum tube with two charged plates and a fluorescent screen. Magnetic and electric fields deflected the current, and he found a stream of charged particles. He announced the discovery of the electron. The history of medical electricity begins with the first practical static generator in 1742 and the Leyden jar for storing electricity in 1745. Doctors electrified patients with static electricity or gave them strong shocks. This produced some promising results, but the technology was incomplete. The first battery appeared in 1800, opening the door to low voltage direct current. Michael Faraday opened the door to alternating current in 1831 with pulsed “faradic” current. Electricity could now be generated through motion, and batteries could be charged. In 1836, Guy’s Hospital of London set up an “electrifying room.” Patients sat on an insulated chair and received an “electric bath” from a static machine. Most patients were women. The treatment consisted of drawing sparks up and down the spine or passing shocks through the pelvis with the Leyden jars. A brass ball grounded to the earth was used to draw the sparks. Nikola Tesla was the great genius who made alternating current the standard for transmission and use. He observed that high-frequency electricity had important effects on health. In 1892 he met with Paul Oudin in Paris where they discussed ways of building therapeutic high-frequency oscillators. Months later Oudin produced the first device that became known as the “violet ray.” Paul Oudin began to experiment with skin disorders and found that acne, eczema, and psoriasis were easily treated with the new device. After a few treatments the skin patches would begin to break up and disappear completely in two to three months. When the devices were used to spark warts or skin cancer, the anomalies often were removed within weeks. The violet ray often took away pain, and many times it was almost considered a miracle.
The early electrical healing devices were called by several names but were generally known as “high-frequency oscillators.” The Dental Brief first used the term “violet ray” in 1913. In 1916, the first inexpensive hand-held devices appeared in drug stores. The public accepted the violet ray and hundreds of thousands of units were sold. Twelve companies made the devices in the United States, Canada, Germany, France, Spain, and England. Drugstores had front window displays of violet rays. When they became popular with the public, doctors and the FDA started to despise them. At first the Journal of the American Medical Association published promising therapeutic results in articles. Then it printed an article about a man who deliberately short-circuited his violet ray and electrocuted himself. This implied that the device was dangerous and should be outlawed. The Depression put the companies that made violet rays out of business and the devices became unavailable. There is another reason why the device was forgotten. A stream of violet rays of light passes through a glass tube into the skin. Tiny sparks shoot out, and when the device is withdrawn, there are sparks causing the muscles to jerk. Using the device is very unsettling at first and slightly uncomfortable. After the initial sensation passes, the violet ray is easy to use. Edgar Cayce was the “sleeping prophet” who gave 14,000 readings between 1920 and his death in 1945. Desperate people seeking help for medical problems consulted him when doctors couldn’t help them. In his self-hypnotic trances, he recommended the violet ray treatments over 900 times. He kept interest in this nearly forgotten device alive. The winners wrote the history books and textbooks of medicine. They made certain that everyone knew about the glories of surgery and wonder drugs. They made sure that electric medicine was placed in the category dominated by cranks and frauds. Robert Becker was the leading scientist engaged in regeneration work with electricity. He discovered the ideal currents for regenerating broken bones. As his research became more interesting and promising, he found that the National Institutes of Health denied him monetary grants to continue. He was so discouraged that he wrote: “The pigeons of Zeus cover new ideas with their droppings and conduct rigged experiments to disprove them.” The violet ray is a grandfathered device, meaning that it was produced before 1976 and is generally presumed to be safe and not subject to federal regulation. In spite of this, the FDA threatened legal action against the companies that produce them and the people who use them. The climate of official intimidation has been so strong that only one journal (Chinese Medical Journal) has published studies in the last 70 years. The violet ray is not a medical miracle, but it often produced remarkable healing in a short period of time. Those who use it should take the same precautions as with any electrical device. In any healing treatment, qualified medical advice should be sought. This book does not make medical recommendations, but it does tell the history and results of those who used electricity for healing. There is more to be told of the story of medical electricity, but this is a beginning.
NIKOLA TESLA LEADS THE WAY
“When a person is subjected to the action of such a coil, the proper adjustments being carefully observed, luminous streams are seen in the dark issuing from all parts of the body. These streams are short and of delicate texture when the number of breaks is very great, and the actions of the device are free from any irregularities. But when the number of breaks is small or the action of the device imperfect, long and noisy streams appear, which cause some discomfort. The physiological effects produced with apparatus of the kind may be graduated from a hardly perceptible action when the secondary is at a great distance from the primary, to a most violent one when both coils are placed at a small distance. In the latter case only, a few seconds are sufficient to cause a feeling of warmth all over the body, and soon after the person perspires freely.” - Nikola Tesla 1898
The word “tesla” is the Serbian word for the broad ax, which was once used for squaring timber. Nikola Tesla’s father began his career in the army, but the tough discipline wasn’t suitable for a poetry writer. He married and began work as a pastor in the Velebut Mountain community of Smiljar near the eastern shore of the Adriatic Sea. As a boy in the 1850s and 1860s, Nikola had particular ability to see light and images about him. It had just snowed, and the snow left a luminous trail with flares of light from his snowballs. When he was an older man, he told the story of his discovery of electricity as a boy. He sat in the house stroking Macak, the finest of all cats in the world. “I felt impelled to stroke Macak’s back. What I saw was a miracle which made me speechless . . . Macak’s back was a sheet of light, and my hand produced a shower of crackling sparks loud enough to be heard all over the place.” “My father told me that this was electricity. My mother told me to stop petting the cat lest I start a fire.” He thought to himself, ‘Is nature a gigantic cat? If so, who strokes its back? It can only be God.’” He was sickly as a young boy, and it didn’t look as if he would survive. He credited his survival to reading a book by Mark Twain, giving him the will to live. When he was in his teens, he became ill with cholera and almost didn’t make it. His family pressed him to become a minister, but he wanted to become an electrical engineer. His parents lost their oldest son, and they didn’t want Nikola going off into a world they didn’t understand. He showed tremendous ability in mathematics. He could visualize the answer almost as soon as the problem was stated. When he was seven, his family moved to Gospic, where he finished grammar school. Then he entered the Polytechnical Institute at Graz in Austria, where he studied mathematics and physics. He finished by studying philosophy at Prague for two years. In 1881, he began his career by working in Budapest for the telephone company. In 1882, he moved to Paris to work for the Continental Edison Company. The company opened a new generating plant in Strassburgh, Germany, and Emperor Wilhelm I was present at the dedication. A short-circuit explosion blew out a wall. The company sent Tesla to do the difficult job of soothing over the Germans and repairing the plant. He was promised substantial compensation if he could successfully resolve the difficulties. He worked miracles in getting the plant operating and resolving the anger. When he asked for his reward back in Paris, the company simply ignored him. As a result, he quit his job, sold his belongings, and boarded a ship to the United States. He landed in the United States in 1884 with a few cents in his pocket, a book of poetry, and an introduction to Thomas Edison. Edison put him to work fixing the direct current generators and making them more efficient. He was given the job of designing direct current dynamos with short field pieces to replace the original Edison generators. He was put to work for $18 a week on an emergency basis and promised $50,000 if he could accomplish the tasks. He worked 18 hours a day for seven days a week. When he tried to collect from Edison, he was told it was only a joke. Tesla quit the job, and in 1886 dug ditches for $2 a day in order to survive. The foreman of the ditch digging crew introduced him to A.K. Brown of the Western Union Telegraph Company. He then was able to organize and finance the Tesla Electric Company. He constructed alternating current motors, generators, and transformers. He was granted seven patents in 1887 and five more patents in the next few years on the basic alternating current system. George Westinghouse was working on a system of alternating currents, but he recognized the superiority of the new system and bought Tesla’s patents for $1 million. His engineers were using 133 hertz, but at Tesla’s recommendation, they standardized AC power at 60 hertz. Now he could accomplish his dreams of harnessing Niagara Falls to produce large amounts of power. In 1895, the first alternating current generator at Niagara Falls began to supply 5,000 horsepower. In 1896, a 22-mile transmission line carried power from the falls to light Buffalo, New York. It took ten-kilowatt hours of electricity to make a pound of aluminum. Charles Hall was now able to get enough power to make the process a commercial success. In a few years, Niagara Falls was feeding the largest industrial plants of the world. By 1902, the falls was generating 80,000 horsepower. In 1891, Tesla gave a lecture to the Society of Electrical Engineers. He had spectacular demonstrations of giant sparks and sheets of flame. Newspapers gave him great publicity, and he was invited to lecture in Europe in 1892. The 1893 World’s Fair in Chicago was lit with Tesla’s system. In 1892, he went to Europe to lecture on alternating current. He would never repeat a lecture, but while traveling in England, James Dewar sought to get him to repeat a lecture to a group of scientists. He escorted Tesla to Michael Faraday’s chair and brought out Faraday’s last bottle of whisky, which had remained untouched since his death in 1867. After a good drink, Tesla gave the lecture. When he returned from Europe, Tesla began to work on his big dream. In 1895, fire destroyed his laboratory. This loss set him back a great deal, but he was able to find backers for his new inventions. His great ambition was to broadcast power, so that houses, airplanes, boats, and cars with a small antenna could pick up the power they needed. In 1889 to 1900 his men worked in Colorado Springs, Colorado. They built a building around a gigantic tesla coil, with a high antenna linked to a copper ball above the building. The currents were so high, that during preliminary tests, he and his crew walked about with four-inch rubber pads on the bottoms of their shoes. He asked his men to work with their left hands in their pockets to prevent electricity from shorting across their chests and killing them. When he threw the switch, lightning strokes 135 feet long streamed from the antenna on the roof. The thunder could be heard at Cripple Creek 15 miles away. Then the generator at Colorado Springs went dead. It overloaded, and the insulation began to burn. But Tesla’s men were able to fix it and complete their work. Tesla believed he had discovered the resonant frequency waves of the earth. Now he could broadcast electricity to any point on earth. There is an unconfirmed story that during the Colorado Springs experiments, he lit 50 light bulbs 26 miles away. When he returned, he tried to get financing for broadcasting electricity. J.P. Morgan gave him some money, but not enough to continue his experiments. Morgan was concerned with the idea that if electricity were freely broadcast, people wouldn’t pay for it. In 1902, Tesla worked on his great Wardenclyff station. It was supposed to be a world broadcasting system and send out power. He also intended to mount a death ray on it to protect the U.S. from planes, ships, and missiles. He couldn’t get money to finish it and was deeply in debt. Eventually the building was sold and destroyed to pay his debts. His great career as an inventor seemed to be over at this point. He never got enough money to finish the great dreams he had. He eventually was able to pay off his debts, and he largely became a forgotten man. He did make several minor inventions such as the car speedometer, which brought him enough money to continue working. He gave interviews, popular in newspapers, on the great projects which he hoped to do. In 1932, he had friends pull the gas engine from a new Pierce Arrow car. An 80-horsepower electric motor was mounted in place. He installed a mystery box about two feet long, a foot wide, and six inches in depth, with two rods coming from it. He drove the car at speeds up to 80 miles an hour. He later wrote to Robert Jonson, saying he had an electrical generator that didn’t need an outside power source; that he was able to harness cosmic rays to operate a car. His early experiments led him to the idea that high-frequency currents had important medical uses. He could thrust a heavy bar of iron into a wire loop carrying the currents. The iron would quickly grow red and melt. He could thrust his arm into the same loop, and nothing would happen. When Professor Stephane Leduc announced the discovery of electro sleep, Tesla remarked that he had discovered the narcotic effect of electric currents. He passed high currents through his head and didn’t lose consciousness. There was warmth all over his body and sweating. He could hardly keep his eyes open afterward and he fell into a deep lethargic sleep as quickly as he lay down. Manufacturers of the violet ray mention him as the inventor, but this is only partially so. He did discuss building medical devices with Jacques-Arsène d’Arsonval and Paul Oudin in 1892 in Paris. The next year Paul Oudin built the first device that later became known as the violet ray. Tesla met with Frederick Strong in 1896 while testing an electric motor. The next year Strong came out with the American version of the violet ray. Nikola Tesla talked about taking electric showers. When he subjected himself to currents of several million volts, small particles adhering to his body were removed. “I find that not only firmly adhering matter such as paint is thrown off, but even the particles of the toughest metals are torn off.” He invented a vibrating platform, which had a powerful laxative effect. Mark Twain often visited his laboratory. One time Twain stood on the platform for several minutes. Tesla asked him to get off, but Twain kept enjoying the vibrating effect. He finally ordered Twain to step off, resulting in a quick emergency trip to the bathroom. Tesla worked on X-rays, which he initially believed would stimulate the brain. In the spring of 1897, he was ill for weeks. He realized that the X-rays were dangerous to the health and gave a talk to the New York Academy of Sciences about the need for lead shielding. During Tesla’s great period of invention, George Scherff was his accountant. He kept advising Tesla to work on smaller inventions that would bring in money, but Tesla was interested in his world radio, death ray, and electrical current broadcaster. He wasn’t interested in small things; he wanted to revolutionize the world. But without the small things, there was no money for the big things! George Scherff tried to get him to complete work on the Tesla pad in 1898. This was a high-frequency pad, which would work the same way that we now use a hot water bottle. It was a type of diathermy device, but Tesla never finished work on it. In 1903, Scherff tried to get Tesla to produce a better violet ray. Newspaper stories and interviews resulted in letters from many doctors asking for a small high-frequency medical oscillator. Tesla was working on his world communication system and wasn’t interested. In 1910, the Tesla Ozone Company was organized with capital of $400,000 to develop a process with commercial uses including refrigeration. Ozone was of great interest to doctors, and the high-frequency currents generated it easily. Nothing came of the venture. Throughout his life Tesla believed in the ability of high-frequency currents to refresh the body. He proposed burying high-tension wire in classrooms to stimulate students. He talked about a high-tension dressing room, so actors would be properly stimulated before going on stage. The money to finish the great dreams didn’t come. If he had concentrated on small things, he might have been like Thomas Edison, and perhaps he could have realized his great dreams. By the late 1930s, he was a gray-haired recluse engaged in feeding and caring for sick pigeons in New York City. When Tesla died in 1943, he left a legacy of giant dreams, and a creative imagination that has never been surpassed.
EDGAR CAYCE SAVES THE VIOLET RAY
“The vital force is not enclosed in man but radiates within and around him like a luminous sphere. It is a radiating essence, and in these semi-material rays, the imagination of man produces healthy or unhealthy effects. But of these invisible causes of disease popular medicine knows next to nothing. Men who are devoid of the power of spiritual perception are unable to recognize the existence of anything that cannot be seen externally. There are some who have learned so much that their learning has driven out all their common sense. Medical science may be acquired by learning, but medical wisdom is the gift of God.” - Paracelsus (1493–1541)
“Life in its expression in a human body is of an electrical nature. The vibrations from low electrical forces, rather than the high vibrations, produce life-flowing effects.” – Edgar Cayce
The violet ray was almost completely forgotten by 1960. Historians wrote nothing about it, and no books were available. Yet many people knew about the device, and it could be obtained for medical use because of Edgar Cayce. The interest in his readings kept the device from dying. Edgar Cayce was born in 1877 on a farm near Hopkinsville, Kentucky. At the age of four he witnessed the drowning of his grandfather. He then had visits from his grandfather’s ghost as he was growing up. At the age of 13, a light filled his bedroom, and he experienced an angelic being who promised him that he would become a healer. He thought that it was his mother, so he ran into her bedroom, but she quickly sent him to bed. When he returned to bed, the figure said: “Thy prayers are heard. You will have your wish. Remain faithful. Be true to yourself. Help the sick, the afflicted.” He had been a poor student, but after the vision became a good student. He discovered that he was able to sleep over a book at night, and he would awaken knowing everything in the book. Cayce was a deeply religious teenager who became president of the “Glad Helpers Society,” a group that visited jails and hospitals. When the famous evangelist Dwight L. Moody came to town, Cayce told him about his visions and meetings with invisible beings. The evangelist quoted the Bible verse about stoning people to death with ‘bad spirits.’ Then Moody talked about God appearing to people in dreams and an experience of his own that had come true. In 1898, Cayce moved to Louisville, Kentucky, to work for a store. He slept on the company catalogue and instantly memorized it. His abilities were quickly rewarded, and the business became more prosperous. In 1900, he joined his father in traveling sales work. Once there was an outbreak of smallpox, and they had to remain in a small town. A hypnotist tried entertaining the trapped travelers. He hypnotized a man, so he was able to play the piano. Then he hypnotized Cayce, and he, too, was able to play piano. A year later, Cayce began to have headaches and lost his voice. He consulted doctor after doctor and after a year passed, he was only able to speak in a faint whisper. Now he was a hundred-pound skeleton and looked like he was dying of tuberculosis. In desperation he went to the hypnotist Al Layne. When he was put into a trance, he was able to speak normally. “Yes, we see the body. In the normal physical state, this body is unable to speak, due to a partial paralysis of the inferior muscles of the vocal cords, produced by nerve strain…” He began to suggest remedies for himself, and after awakening, was able to speak normally. A few days later Al Layne called on him. Layne was suffering from stomach trouble and wanted to see if Cayce could help him. Edgar didn’t want to be hypnotized, but he felt obligated to try. Under hypnosis he was able to describe Layne’s problem and suggest remedies. He was through with this experience—or so he thought. Then he lost his voice again and had to go to Al Layne. The cycle kept repeating, and Al Layne began asking him for help for other needy people. Cayce gave a reading for the sick daughter of a medical doctor. The reading said that she had swallowed a celluloid collar button. Eventually an operation was performed to remove it and the girl recovered. A newspaper reported this, and Cayce tried to escape the publicity by moving to Bowling Green, Kentucky. People went all the way there for help, and Cayce continued to wrestle in his mind about the appropriateness of helping them this way. The case that enabled him to feel that he was doing right was his reading for the principal of the high school at Hopkinsville, Kentucky. She suffered from flu, which resulted in convulsions. Her mind went blank without any reasoning power, and it looked like she would die. Her relatives followed his advice in the reading, and soon she was in perfect health. A sick relative gave him the new perspective “Old man [a childhood nickname], God has given you something He has given to few people. You must consider well what use you put this gift He has given you. Do not abuse it but use it. Do not be ashamed of it as you have been, but help poor suffering humanity, such as I.” When the readings proved correct, people began asking the sleeping Cayce about the horse races and stock market. He would give accurate answers, but the next day would suffer from bad headaches. He was once asked about a dry well drilled in Texas. The drillers were told to shoot explosives at a certain depth, and the well would begin to produce. They did this and got 600 barrels of oil a day. But everything that Cayce did for financial gain seemed to fall apart. He rarely dealt with crime, but on one occasion he did a reading about a Canadian murder mystery. A girl was found dead in a home, and her sister was shrieking hysterically, unable to say anything. The reading said that the sisters quarreled over a boyfriend, and one shot the other and threw the pistol down a drain. The police retrieved the gun, and the sister confessed. In 1911, Cayce’s wife became ill and steadily got worse with tuberculosis. No air at all was going through one lung, and she was bleeding internally. Cayce finally did a reading for her and gave the answers to the druggist, who wasn’t sure that he could make the formula. When she was given it, the bleeding stopped, and in a few days the fever went down. In two weeks, she was feeling better, although it was months before she was back to normal. Dr. Wesley Ketchum believed that he had appendicitis and needed an operation. He believed that Edgar Cayce was simply hoaxing people, but he got a reading anyway. The reading turned out to be true; he did not need an appendix operation. Ketchum became a faithful supporter. Cayce made his living as a photographer during most of his early years, but pressure on him kept growing to do readings full time. When he was in Selma, Alabama, he found Gladys Davis, who became the perfect stenographer and helped transcribe his readings. Now he began to read professionally and founded the Cayce Research Institute in Dayton, Ohio. Gladys Davis suffered from dull headaches while transcribing the first readings. She finally asked for a reading, and it attributed the headaches to eye strain resulting from bad posture. It told her to do neck stretching exercises, discard the glasses and use the violet ray three times a week. She did so, resulting in no more headaches. She didn’t need glasses until the age of 50 when her eyes began to change. In 1923, Cayce was secretly called to Washington, D.C. to give a reading for President Woodrow Wilson. We don’t know if the advice was followed, but Wilson didn’t recover and died in 1924. In the same year, his first readings mentioning karma and reincarnation were given. Cayce realized that many Bible passages became clear with the recognition of reincarnation. One of the gospel stories tells of the blind man of whom the disciples asked: “Who sinned, this man or his parents?” If the man’s blindness was a result of his actions, it must have been in a previous life. During his readings and dream experiences, Cayce began to remember going to the “hall of records.” An old man would hand him a large book, which contained the record of the individual who sought the information. The mysterious health problems all had a cause, but often it lay in the distant past. In the next 20 years, he gave 14,000 readings and mentioned the violet ray some 900 times. During the 1920s, the violet ray could be bought at many drugstores, so the treatment was easily obtained. He recommended it for arthritis, skin disorders, digestive disorders, physical exhaustion, and lethargy. For those who were tired, the violet ray was to be used along the spinal column, to “charge the centers of the nervous system.” A person with general debility had this reading: “This will give the pickup or the stimulation that is needed for what might be called the recharging of the center along the cerebrospinal system, so that there is better coordination between the ganglia of the cerebrospinal and sympathetic nerve system.” Cayce recommended the violet ray for all cases of “demonic possession.” People who heard voices or had mental problems were to run it over their body regularly. “These treatments will tend to make for the raising of the vibration of the body, dissociating the effects of repression in the system, producing better coordination throughout.” For a person with anemia, he spoke: “Still using the electric forces as would be applied from the violet ray, that we may bring more of the blood supply through the nerve reaction in and through the tissue in exterior portion, as well as through the deeper tissue. Apply across the abdomen very thoroughly, that we may waken the functioning of the liver, spleen, and those portions in the digestive tract.” A person with eye problems had this recommendation: “With the application of the violet ray to the eye proper, we will find that there will be more response from the optic centers proper, and the relief gradually through the stimulating of the circulation to remove those pressures on same as cause the neurotic or the neuralgia-like condition as exists there.” A patient with goiter was given this advice: “We would have each day the violet ray treatment along the spine and over the throat where there are the tendencies for the nonactivity of the glands and those accumulations and the fullness that appears in the throat. These will naturally be somewhat irritated at times by the electrical vibrations, but with the taking of properties for the glands themselves, the body will gradually adjust itself. We would use the bulb applicator along the throat, up to the head and down the cerebrospinal system for at least three to five minutes. Then we would hold in the hand the applicator, where the body charges, and is charged by the electrical forces passing through same, for about five minutes. Do this each day, preferably before retiring at night. These will make for better conditions and electrify, as it were, the energies of the system.” For glandular problems he remarked: “This is a high voltage [device] stimulating all centers that are as the crossroads, the connections between the various portions of the physical body functioning, the mental attitudes, and attainments, as well as the sources of supply, which arose by the choice of the entity in entering this particular temple, this individual temple.” A woman with menopausal problems was told: “After at least four or five of the complete adjustments osteopathically are made, we could use the violet ray in the evening before retiring to soothe the nerve forces of the body. Begin at the base of the brain, a circular motion along either side of the cerebrospinal system, extending all the way to the lower portion of the spine, then down the sciatic nerve to the bottoms of the feet. Do this for periods of a week to two weeks, rest from the same a few days, and then begin again.” During World War II, there were terrific demands on his time, and his health began to fail. Readings on himself said the demands on his energy were killing him. A reading on his failing health told him that his work would be finished on a certain day, which was the day of his death. He died in 1943, but his work was never completely forgotten. In the 1960s, there was an explosion of interest in his philosophy. In 1967, Thomas Sugrue published There is a River, the Story of Edgar Cayce. In the same year, Jess Stern published Edgar Cayce, the Sleeping Prophet. These books had great success and exposed a new generation to “new age” ideas that had been circulating 50 years before. The Cayce Association kept many of the formulas alive mentioned in the readings. They made the violet ray available in spite of opposition of the Food and Drug Administration.
THE VIOLET RAY
“The properties of the high-frequency current are: it does not kill, it does not tetanize or even contract muscles; unless concentrated at a point, it does not burn; it does not cause pain, and the body seems to offer but little resistance to its passage, as seen in the X-ray photographs. No matter where it enters the body it penetrates every organ and tissue, and, when a Geissler tube is held by another person near to the person saturated with electricity, the escaping vibrations will light the tube, even when held, for instance, close to the shoe of the person taking the electricity. In its passage through the body, it seems to contract or modify the vibrations of individual cells everywhere, changing or stimulating abnormally vibrating cells, bringing them back to their normal vibrations, and thus restoring their health and function, as well as stimulating healthy cells to increased action.”- Howard van Rensselaer 1912
The “violet ray” is first mentioned by that name in a dental journal in 1913. In 1916, the Roger’s Electric Company publicized a small hand-held device under the name of violet ray. The name quickly caught on and soon the public was using this term. Before 1916, most medical literature calls it “high-frequency” treatment. By the 1920s, both the French device and the American Tesla model were called “violet ray.” It was known by several names, before it became the violet ray. By the time the device had become the “violet ray,” the earlier names had been forgotten. The idea began in 1891, when Nikola Tesla gave a widely publicized lecture on electrical therapeutic devices. He was not interested in marketing or building medical devices; they were just a byproduct of his research. He found that he could pass intense currents through his body that would have killed him, if they had been of a lower frequency. The currents relieved pain and produced deep sleep. He felt that this would become the medicine of the future, but he had greater plans and didn’t pursue the medical applications. In 1892, Tesla made a widely publicized lecture tour of Europe and met with Jacques-Arsène d’Arsonval and Paul Oudin. The three men quickly became good friends. d’Arsonval is said to have tried using the Tesla circuit device on a patient, but it nearly killed him with a powerful shock. This ended his work with the device. Paul Oudin devised a spiral solenoid of copper wire in 1892. He was using a circuit first made by Oliver Lodge in which one end of a d’Arsonval spiral was grounded, and the other end went into a knob that gave a brush discharge. He believed that the skin would act as a dielectric, and the body would vibrate from the electric oscillations spreading through its mass. The body was a container of water vibrating like it was struck by a stone. He called the apparatus a “résonateur.” It was often called the “Résonateur de Oudin” or the “Montage en Oudin.” In 1908, a portable French apparatus known as the “anemos” was marketed; the “effluvogene” came on the market in 1911. In 1913, the French Electrotherapeutic Congress voted to call the treatments “d’Arsonvalization.” Paul Oudin used two spiral windings end to end to create the high-frequency current. The Oudin Résonateur proved to be useful in therapy and highly useful in dermatology. In 1896, Oudin made the first French X-ray, and he also was the first to publicize the dangers of X-rays. He was one of the first to work with radium and diathermy, which represented the cutting edge of medicine at the time. The violet ray device consisted of three major parts. The first was an oscillator generally producing a frequency of half a million to a million oscillations per second. Some models used a lower frequency. The frequency of the device depended on the size of the capacitor. The voltage of these circuits varied from 20,000 to 50,000 volts. The second part of the circuit was an interrupter. There is no constant oscillating current; it is regularly interrupted in short pulses of a few milliseconds. The first interrupters were mechanical or mercury. A simple doorbell buzzer interrupter was used in many models. The initial purpose may have been to keep the heat from building up with a steady current. The interrupted current may work the same way we do when we have a stuck car. We don’t give it a steady push; we give it short alternating pushes to get it out of the snow or mud. Mercury interrupters were first tried, then centrifugal interrupters and ring type mechanical interrupters. In 1905, Reinhold Wappler devised an efficient mechanical interrupter: a metal strip acting as a spring with a piece of soft iron with two platinum points as contacts. The magnetic iron core draws the soft piece of iron and interrupts the current. The third part of the device was the applicator. Paul Oudin used Tesla applicators with his circuit. Frederic de Kraft invented the blue pencil electrode, which was a rubber tube filled with asbestos and capped with a brass ring at one end. When you turned on the device, a purple effluve was visible, extending from the end of the electrode put to the skin. The blue pencil was mainly used for static generators. The blue effluve was applied to the skin. When it was pulled away, the discharge was a purple feathery character. When the blue pencil was put over a black eye, it would remove the marks quickly. It would treat the spasms of bronchial asthma, herpes, and wounds. If the polarity of the static generator was wrong, the discharge irritated the area, but the blue discharge had a sedative and pain-relieving effect. The people with static generators knew that the violet tint showed them the negative pole, while the whitish light was the positive pole. The basis of all static treatments was a good general electrification. The first mention of bluish light is found in Martin’s essay on electricity, quoted in the 1871 edition of John Welsey’s The Desideratum; or, Electricity made plain and useful. “When it is a little condensed, it appears bluish; when a little denser, it appears purple; when denser still, it appears yellow; when highly condensed, it is clear and white, like the light of the sun.” Blue and violet are colors which were seen in other healing modes of this time. The blue “od” light is seen over the north pole of an electromagnet in the dark. As Edgar Cayce became more aware of his gift, he found that he was filled with purple silvery light while traveling to the hall of records. When the conducting wire of a d’ArsonvalDopuin apparatus was seen in the dark, bluish rays strike it at right angles along its entire length. Frederick Strong reinvented the violet ray in 1897 in the United States. He had met briefly with Nikola Tesla while he was testing an electric motor. He didn’t know about Paul Oudin’s work, and he set out to produce a useful electrical medical treatment. Strong was influenced by Tesla’s article on the therapeutic possibilities of electricity and was determined to find a suitable applicator. Metal electrodes produced a painful spark. He tried putting a sheet of glass on his patients and passing the output of the Tesla circuit through the glass. The flat glass didn’t cover the areas he wanted to reach. He took an ordinary test tube and turned it into a vacuum electrode. This proved to be very useful, so he worked to perfect it. In 1834, Sir W. Snow Harris showed that the spark-length of an electrical machine increased in inverse ratio to the pressure of the gas through which it passes. He was able to exhaust his tubes down to 1/500th atmosphere, and the discharge became violet-pink. In 1838, Johann Geissler experimented with improved vacuum pumps and was able to get the air pressure down to 1/1,000,000th of an atmosphere. The discharge changed from violet to pure white. A New York company sold glass electrodes to electrotherapists. They didn’t pay much attention to the vacuum in the glass applicators. As the air was removed from the glass tubes, the color changed from rose pink, violet, blue, blue-white, and finally to a yellowish –white, and in a high vacuum, there was no color at all. A perfect vacuum didn’t conduct electricity well. Strong believed that a moderate red vacuum was the best therapeutic applicator. The standard eventually became a “violet vacuum” of about 1/500th atmosphere. Paul Oudin’s circuit consisted of a series of disks of light of equal thickness. They were much like the pulses often seen in fluorescent lights. The Tesla circuit produced long threads of purple light. Frederick Strong used an interrupter on the high-frequency currents to give pulses. He found that this produced greater vitality and stimulated the circulation. He tried imposing sound waves on the high-frequency currents to produce a musical or speaking arc. He believed that imposing a voice wave over the high-frequency current could enable a totally deaf person to hear when put over the ears. Strong opened a “High-Frequency Clinic” in Boston. There isn’t a great deal of difference between an X-ray and a violet ray. The X-ray has a high vacuum tube with a slanted metal electrode at the end. Its voltage is higher, and the electrons travel through the vacuum at high velocities slamming into the metal releasing X-rays. The higher the vacuum, the shorter and more energetic the X-rays. A special X-ray applicator for the violet ray devices was available from some manufacturers. The third therapy resulting from these experiments was the generation of ozone by high-frequency discharges. The violet ray generates small amounts of ozone, but this is not generally considered part of the electrical treatment. Ozone is a powerful disinfectant, and modifications to the device used tubes with many small metal points to produce ozone. Special glass applicators made to generate ozone were made for the violet ray. Strong’s first devices were the size of small refrigerators. The units had to be wheeled around a doctor’s office. Tesla’s experimental units used giant coils soaked in oil, for no insulation would contain the high-voltage electricity. The first Tesla units were dangerous to operate. The key to making practical units was efficient insulation for the wires. Vacuum tubes eliminated the noisy spark gap circuit. Strong continued to refine his design and produced a smaller simplified coil known as the “Ajax.” Then he devised a combination unit to generate high-frequency currents, X-rays, and ultraviolet rays. In 1904, Frederick Strong patented the first true violet ray, which he called the “Midge.” All of the parts were arranged concentrically around a paper tube. It was only five inches long and could easily be held in the hand. The voltage could be adjusted, and glass tubes adapted to various needs could easily be replaced. In 1908, the General Electric Company offered “electromedical apparatus” in its catalogue. Buyers could select either the Oudin or the Tesla device. The buyers were told: “Strong violet rays are produced on the surface of the skin by means of a special electrode.” Niels Finsen won the Nobel Prize in 1903 for his work in using ultraviolet light for treating tuberculosis. People worried about TB, and they wanted ultraviolet light. The violet ray did not produce ultraviolet light, and light wasn’t the key to its healing abilities. The advertising statement by General Electric grew into the name “violet ray.” Some models were made with the larger low-frequency coil separate from the high-frequency coil. An electric cord connected the large low-frequency unit to the small high-frequency hand-held coil. This produced a lightweight, hand-held model. In 1915, the Bleadon-Dunn Company put out a compact handheld high-frequency generator that it called the “Violetta.” This proved so successful that the next year the company issued a “Baby Violetta” selling for $15. In 1916, the Victor Electric Company put out a small portable high-frequency apparatus. They advertised it as a “violet ray” containing a “Tesla circuit.” Four more manufacturers would produce the device in North America and continue until the Depression destroyed sales. The glass applicator of the device was rubbed over the area for up to 10 minutes. The coils heated up and then had to be cooled for about 20 minutes. Talcum powder or starch was often dusted on the skin to make the glass tip glide over the skin. If used at a short distance from the skin, it sparked, which produced some stimulation. Some companies sold a special glass electrode cap fitted with a cotton tampon saturated with a solution of silver nitrate or iodine. The pulses of high frequency drove the substance into the skin. For lupus, a pad was saturated with an aqueous solution of a bismuth salt.
THE VIOLET RAY IN HEALING
Sometimes a majority group of these body cells, or a large minority in some section of the anatomy of man ‘lay down on him’ because they have not been treated kindly or are worn out and exhausted by the excessive strain thrown upon them. Then man gets peevish and cross and goes to the doctor. This always is a wise thing to do under the circumstances, but very often the circumstances could be prevented were the cells treated properly. To aid in the proper treatment of the cells, science has invaded the home with a new and domesticated apparatus for the application of the violet ray. The duty of the violet ray, hitherto confined to the elaborate and expensive apparatus of the laboratory or the special practitioner, is to massage gently the tired-out cells and make them feel good. The violet ray is a first cousin of the X-ray, but unlike its relative, it is utterly amiable and docile, producing no irritating effect. For this reason, and because cellular massage is much more penetrating and gentler than the common or muscular variety, the violet ray apparatus bids fair to become as important as an adjunct to the home as is the Victrola, which massages dull care away from the mind.” From a 1920s advertising bulletin for the Violetta Joseph Rivière was a close follower of developments in medical electrical research. He made a duplicate of d’Arsonval’s electrical device and treated a musician for neurasthenic symptoms. After a few treatments with auto conduction, the man’s insomnia was gone. During treatment he accidentally received a stimulating but harmless spark. He had an ulcer on the back of one hand that had been treated without result. He decided to try applying sparks and current, and it soon healed. This aroused interest in using the violet ray to cure ulcerations and injuries that healed slowly. A 41-year-old person was injured on the face and arms, with healing was so slow that it was expected to take five weeks. After the first treatment, healing could be seen on the second day. Six treatments were given; healing took two weeks. A contused wound with ragged edges didn’t heal in the first 23 days. After the first violet ray treatment, less fluid was seeping from the wound. After the second treatment, the wound began to heal over. Paul Oudin used three treatments a week, and the healing was complete in ten treatments. A 69-year-old man had a large purple ulcer on his right leg. There were many small ulcerations nearby, and the leg didn’t heal over a three-year period. He was given two violet ray treatments a week, and the healing was complete in three months. A 45-year-old patient had an ulcer the size of a shilling, which refused to heal for two years. It was carefully dressed and covered with an elastic bandage. The ulcer was given eight treatments in three weeks, and all of the pain and tenderness disappeared. It was completely healed after 18 treatments. The skin broke down again, and with another series of violet ray treatments, it was completely cured. A 50-year-old lawyer had a severe bruise on his left foot, after a large swinging door struck it with considerable force. The pain was unusually severe, and there was a good deal of inflammation. The injury turned purple a week later, and there was severe pain. Gangrenous spots appeared on his foot. The injury was treated with five-minute violet ray treatments that were extended to ten minutes. After 12 treatments the pain lessened, and the injury began to heal. A man banged his head against a faucet resulting in severe pain and swelling. It was massaged for two weeks, and the swelling was reduced, but the pain remained. The first violet ray treatment eliminated most of the pain, and seven more treatments healed the injury. A woman used her violet ray to treat a painful sprain, which quickly gave her relief. Her husband remarked: “I wonder if that would do my face any good?” He had lupus for 15 years, with redness and ulceration of the face. After seven violet ray treatments, the entire surface healed over. Professor Emmanuel Doumer used the violet ray to treat several cases of fistulas, which are hollow abscesses. An 18-year-old man had a fistula of the left leg for six years, which didn’t yield to medical care. After three months of violet ray treatment, it healed completely. A 25-year-old woman had a dozen fistulas of the foot oozing pus, which lasted for 13 years. With violet ray treatments, they completely healed in 18 months. Septic areas or local areas of infection readily yielded to treatment with Tesla currents. Frederick Cook made a fine wire effluve electrode that dispersed the current so that it didn’t shock. Soon after this, a Paris manufacturer put Bisserie’s Brush Electrode on the market. It was applied over the infected area or ulcer. A woman working in Paris had a fistula of the right knee for three years. She was given two treatments a day, three days a week. The fistula was completely closed after the seventh week of treatment. A grocer scratched his hand on a nail. His entire arm from the shoulder downward was red and swollen. The whole arm was treated with high-frequency current and bandaged. After three treatments over three days, the arm was cured. A man cut his finger at work but didn’t treat it. A week later it was swollen to twice its normal size. The doctors didn’t think that violet ray treatments could do any good, but it looked bad, so they tried treating it twice a day for the next three days. The swelling disappeared, and there was complete restoration of function. The electrical pulse directed to the spine and solar plexus aborted many varieties of acute infectious disease, if it was used to treat them early. Often colds, flu and sore throat were made to disappear or become so mild that they were hardly noticeable after persistent treatment. A friend of mine ran the violet ray over his sore throat and nose daily. This reduced the discomfort to such a low level that he was hardly bothered by the cold. A manager of the Dominion Rubber Company of Ontario, Canada, bought a number of violet rays and put them in the first aid kits. When the electrical dealer asked him how they were doing, he wrote: “The violet ray machines which we purchased from you last year, have been very satisfactory. The reports we have from our different branch factories are to the effect that these machines are very useful in our hospitals. We feel quite sure they have saved us many dollars in keeping our employees at work. In cases of headache, they are treated in a few minutes, whereas they were formerly off duty for the entire day.” These observations and stories have all been forgotten as medical science moved on. The electrotherapy journals are quite rare, and only a few doctors have seen them or had an interest in their contents. Now we are trying all sorts of expensive high-tech skin grafting procedures in ulcers and wounds that won’t heal. Modern work suggests that wounds and injuries have “currents of injury.” These send a signal to the central nervous system to begin the healing. In normal conditions, the outer layer of the skin is negative, and the inner layer is positive. In injuries, the polarity breaks down. Healing work with direct current has been somewhat contradictory. The anode often has a stronger healing influence, but faster healing may take place by switching polarities every few days. The optimum wound healing current has been found to be 600 microamps, which increases ATP synthesis. Calcium is important to the healing of cells, and electrical stimulation causes an increase in cellular use of this. An experiment that confirmed the early violet ray tests was published in 1961. Twenty dogs were put under anesthesia and given a standard wound. Ten were returned to their cages and allowed to heal on their own. The remaining dogs were treated with pulsed high frequency radio waves. This resulted in signs of marked stimulation. Strands of fat migrated towards the edges, and large numbers of white blood cells were seen in the wounds. Most of the indexes of wound healing took about half the time under the influence of high-frequency radio waves. Another experiment that confirms the acceleration of wound healing with electricity was done in 1988. A group of patients was studied with high voltage pulsed direct current. The patients who didn’t receive treatment had ulcers 29% larger over a seven-week period. The ulcers in the treatment group were 100% healed in a period of 7.3 weeks. None of the modern researchers used the violet ray. The violet ray may have other applications in general healing. An alcoholic had blood in the urine and signs of Bright’s disease. The lower back was treated with high-frequency treatments three times a week. By the 16th treatment, the amount of albumin in the urine began to fall. After 18 treatments, it had dropped from 1.5 grams to 0.2 grams per liter of urine. Multiple chemical sensitivity is difficult to treat and maddeningly difficult to deal with. Often it lasts for years, and nobody can seemingly help the disorder. Hardy Heinke wrote an account of his experiences. He had done a great deal of work with the chemical solvent carbon tetrachloride. Now he had chronic fatigue syndrome and a poor memory. He found that magnesium supplements helped a good deal. He also felt that general violet ray treatments had restored his health.
THE VIOLET RAY IN SKIN DISORDERS
“High-frequency currents, more especially those of the Tesla type, possess therapeutic powers which are not exhibited by any of the remedial agents known to the profession. In passing through the body of the person whose vitality has been almost exhausted through the encroachments of disease, these currents appear to promote circulation, increase metabolism, and more or less completely restore the general harmony between the different functions of the body, seemingly without the slightest expenditure of the scanty residue of vital energy stored up in the cells and tissues. In other words, we have in these currents a means of increasing vitality without the necessity of digesting, assimilating, and storing the nutritive material which ordinarily carries the potential energy which forms the single source of supply for organisms belonging to the animal kingdom.” High-Frequency Currents Frederick Strong 1908 In 1893, Paul Oudin told the Société d’Eléctrothérapie about his work on the treatment of skin problems with high-frequency electricity. He believed that the electrical currents stirred up the body, increasing metabolism and nutrition. He began with a case of psoriasis, which had resisted all other treatments. After two electrical treatments, the plaques began to break up and heal. It took a month of treatments to completely break up all plaques. The next year, a 25-year-old man with psoriasis came to him. Large plaques covered practically all of his legs, so Oudin gave him three treatments per week. By the second week of treatments, the plaques were nearly gone. The treatment was interrupted for three weeks. After three more treatments, the remaining plaques on his back and arms disappeared. A woman came to him with horrible skin with furrows all over it. He treated her skin four times a week with the high-frequency currents. The improvement was slow, but in about a month, her skin began to clear up. A mechanic suffered with arthritis and a red face. After he took three treatments, his face began to look normal. The face turned red again after a week, so he returned for two further treatments. This brought his face back to normal. A 34-year-old woman suffered from arthritis for years. She developed patches of eczema on her cheeks and ears. Doctors were unable to help her appearance. Oudin treated her face, and after five treatments, her skin began to look normal. The device, now known as the violet ray, proved to be useful in nearly all skin conditions, and many doctors began to experiment with it. One patient had intolerable itching of the legs. There was a patch of dry eczema on the arms but nothing on the legs. The doctor did a series of 10-minute treatments over the legs, and the itching went away and didn’t return. Static currents and the static spray had been used to treat itching, but the violet ray proved to be more effective. One man was so sensitive that he was forced to undress and retire to bed because his clothes became unendurable. A current of cold air caused an extreme reaction. Positive static spray reduced the itching to normal. A 72-year-old man suffered from senile pruritus. He consulted several skin specialists, who were unable to help. He itched and scratched day and night. Three treatments a week for several months completely cured the condition. A 27-year-old man suffered from severe vasomotor ataxia with intense itching in both legs. There was no external evidence of irritation. The first violet ray treatments took five minutes for each leg. This checked the itching and gave relief for six hours. In 10 treatments, his condition was completely cured. In ten treatments, the violet ray cured a case of ringworm that extended almost around the body. A second case of ringworm with thick crusts of chronic eczema was cured in 28 treatments. A case of palmar psoriasis resisted all treatment for two years. After 11 treatments lasting five minutes, the trouble cleared up. The palms remained free of the disorder for the next 18 months. The violet ray was used to treat common acne. The first result of the treatment was an intense hyperemia, which left the treated area very red and speckled. The acne usually disappeared in eight to 12 treatments. Any patient could be completely cured in a month. A testimonial that was sent to Renulife company reads: “I had been subjected to pimples for almost five years and had tried everything, vibrators, and all, but without clear results. I used your generator one week, as I was out of the city when it came. Today my face is as clear as anyone could ever wish for.” A woman had acne rosea of the nose for 10 years. The nose was bright reddish and greatly enlarged. She was treated with a needle point violet ray discharge. Small crusts formed on the area and fell off. Her nose and face became nearly normal. A man had acne rosea of the nose for seven years, with increasing enlargement. He looked so offensive that he was given a lesser position at work, so he didn’t have to deal with people. His nose was large and covered with red inflamed pustules. The needle point discharge was applied to limited areas with each treatment for ten weeks. His face looked much better, and he was given his old job back. The violet ray appeared to help excessive perspiration. One woman had severe perspiration under her arms. She used powders without real results. After six treatments, her sweat glands became normal. Another lawyer had to change his socks three times a day; he corrected the sweating with a few violet ray treatments. The violet ray readily treats both dry and scaly eczema, after all other methods of treatment fail. Dr. Gaston Bloch of Paris reported that cases of eczema lasting more than 10 years were cured with half a dozen treatments. A woman suffered from eczema exudans for 20 years. The eruption covered her face and almost every part of her body. She used nearly every remedy without result, and she was so discouraged that she didn’t want to try the violet ray. A few treatments resulted in her complete cure without a return a year later. A 60-year-old woman suffered from irritable eczema for ten years. The eruption affected chiefly the neck and scalp. The violet ray removed the eczema, but it returned. She used more treatments and applied boric acid powder, and that completely cured the problem. 214 215 One person wrote a testimonial to the Renulife company: “I had weeping eczema on my face and had spent not hundreds, but thousands of dollars and still wasn’t cured. Before trying your Renulife Generator I noted good results after the first few treatments. I am now entirely well, and my face is perfectly smooth.” In one case a baby had infantile eczema over the entire body. It looked awful with constant oozing and swollen eyelids. Improvement began after the first treatment, and soon the skin was clear. This treatment proved to be useful for boils. The violet ray aborted the condition as quickly as the treatment started. If boils formed in the area in the past, they ceased to form. One doctor wrote: “A man came to me with a big boil on his forearm and his arm was so lame he could not lift it. I gave him a treatment with my violet ray machine, and the next day the boil was gone, and the soreness was all gone out of his arm. This shows you what the violet ray will do.” One man had a continuous succession of large boils around his nose, mouth, and chin for more than a year. Vaccine treatment failed. He was given three violet ray treatments weekly. There was immediate improvement, and no new boils arose. After four weeks of treatment, his skin was perfectly normal, and he had no boils thereafter. Lupus erythematous is a curious condition that results in a large butterfly-shaped rash over the face. This is believed to be a condition in which the enzyme that breaks down DNA is not working. Researchers shut down the enzyme that breaks down DNA in specially bred mice, and after 6-8 months most of the mice showed lupus symptoms. The enzyme takes care of cellular garbage. DNAse is the enzyme that breaks down DNA. This enzyme has been used to treat cystic fibrosis. In 1897, Emmanuel Doumer began to treat lupus with the violet ray. He gave one to three treatments a week; if there was an intense reaction, the period of time between treatments was longer. Some people could take three treatments a week; others only one treatment a week. He believed that stopping the treatment for a week or two was useful in some patients. It generally took about 20 treatments. The area affected by lupus would become covered with a thin crust, which would fall off and leave a red surface after months of treatments. Dr. Frederic Bisserie reported that he was able to cure 33 out of 62 cases. Jules Jacquot was able to cure 39 out of 56 patients with the electrical treatments. Henri Bordier used a glass electrode with cotton soaked in a bismuth solution. This seemed to make the lupus disappear more quickly. The high-frequency electrical currents were also used for herpes, impetigo, and chilblains. Chilblains were promptly cured by applications of the brush discharge. One patient had disfiguring scars on his face and hands as a result of a childhood accident with glass. After five treatments, the disfiguring scars were beginning to disappear. Dr. Duncan Buckley reported on the use of the violet ray in birthmarks. A girl had a large port wine stain on her face. He used mild sparks and surface treatment, and the stain disappeared. A young woman with a huge birthmark was treated. After a week, it formed a crust. When it fell off, the tissue underneath was mildly pink, but it gradually whitened to a normal skin color. By 1920, most of the high-class beauty parlors adopted the violet ray as an essential part of their equipment. It was used on all facial marks, warts, moles, and wrinkles. Some schools gave their graduating beauticians a violet ray as part of their operating kit! Patients in Europe were still treated with static generators and the violet ray until WWII. Then the therapy disappeared. There was an attempt in 1974 to find out if any doctors were still using electricity to treat skin conditions. No such doctors nor could any universities be found where any violet ray work was done. A violet ray sat on a university shelf for nearly a half century. A man with a skin lesion for six years borrowed it. The lesion was a brown spot about the size of a quarter. It finally turned black and developed roughness, and parts would flake off. He borrowed the old violet ray and used it on the lesion. After about a month of treatment, the entire thing disappeared. Stories like this should have aroused interest, but the political climate against medical alternatives was so strong that it was impossible at this time.
ELECTRICAL EYE TREATMENT
“Something might now be added about a certain very subtle spirit [electricity] that pervades all dense bodies and is concealed in them, by whose force and actions the particles of bodies attract each other when separated by being concealed in them. They attract each other when separated by very small intervals, or cohere when contiguous; and by which electric bodies act at greater distances, both repelling and attracting neighboring corpuscles; and by which light is emitted, reflected, refracted and inflected, and heats bodies; and by which all sensation is stimulated, and the limbs of animals are moved at will—for this is done by the vibrations of this spirit transmitted through the solid capillaments of the nerves from the external organs of sensation to the brain, and from the brain to the muscles. But these things cannot be explained in a few words, nor have we at hand a sufficient number of experiments by which to determine and demonstrate the laws of action of this spirit accurately, as ought to be done.” Principia Isaac Newton 1713
In 1748, Joseph Bruni of Turin, Italy, wrote of treating a woman with a painful irritated eye. He electrified her and drew sparks from the eye. It appeared bloodshot, but that disappeared quickly. The next day the problem was better. He did the same thing twice more and her problem was cured. In 1755, the parents of a blind son implored Dr. Charles LeRoy to try electricity. They heard of a seven-year-old boy cured of blindness by electric shock. Their 21-year-old son became blind after a high fever. The doctor gave him 12 shocks through a well-charged Leyden jar. The man saw electric flames from the discharges, but he remained blind. John Wesley, founder of the Methodist church, was the first to treat the blind successfully with electricity. He put a Newcastle man, who had been blind for years, on an electric platform, and drew sparks from his eyes. After resting for a time, the patient could distinguish objects and walk home without a guide. After a second treatment, he was able to work normally. Wesley treated a 17-year-old girl that became blind from smallpox 12 years earlier. He drew sparks from her eyes and gave shocks to her head and neck. After two 90-minute treatments a day for several weeks, she was able to see enough to function, although her vision was poor. These miracles certainly helped Wesley gain converts! When Alessandro Volta began to experiment with his newly discovered battery, he found that a current applied to the eyes produced a sensation of light. Changing the direction of current produced different colors. In 1801, Justus Christian Loder began to use electricity on the eyes of patients in his clinic. He claimed to have cured two patients with amaurosis, which is blindness caused by disease of the optic nerve. He also showed that direct current could help some problems caused by a diseased retina. The physicist Hermann von Helmholtz found that when the cathode (negative) was applied to the eye, objects could be seen more clearly. The application of the anode made them appear darker and less distinct. He believed that the electric current increased or diminished irritability of the optic nerve. When the cathode was applied to the eye, it produced a blue center with a yellowish green color, as the current was interrupted. William Neftel treated a patient with retinitis pigmentosa. The patient’s vision was so poor that he couldn’t read or cross the street without assistance. He was treated by placing the cathode on the eye, which greatly increased his vision. Soon he could walk without assistance and read for hours every day without problems. Samuel Harris treated eye disorders with negative current applied to the eyes and the positive electrode attached to the neck. A woman came to him with atrophy of the optic nerve and vision of 10/200. After six months of treatment, this improved to 20/60. He began with daily treatments for ten days and then every other day for two to three months. He was able to successfully treat iritis and glaucoma with negative current. Doctors told a patient who came to him that he would be blind at 30. The negative current gave him excellent eyesight. The president of a big corporation had double vision, and objects became double images several feet apart. He had 12 operations without any permanent result. Both negative current and violet ray currents were applied to the eyes. After two weeks of treatment, he could focus on a candle and see only one image. He was extremely grateful for relief from his eye condition. An oculist tried treating three cases of glaucoma with direct current. He applied the positive pole to the eye, but this resulted in pain. When the negative pole was put to the eye the pain was immediately relieved. The oculist had poor results from treating glaucoma by other means. He applied negative current through the eyelids and attached the positive electrode to the neck. This produced immediate improvement, and 25 more treatments were given. Vision in the right eye went from 20/200 to 20/40. Vision in the left eye went from 20/160 to 20/30. A second patient had no change in his left eye, but the right eye went from 20/160 to 20/40 after 14 months of occasional treatments. In a third case, iridectomy failed to help the disorder. After 11 treatments lasting three to 15 minutes, the eyes improved enough to enable the patient to count fingers at a distance of six feet. Dr. Gustat Crusell applied negative electrodes to the eyes, and a positive electrode to the patient’s tongue for cataracts. Short treatments dissolved the cataract. Dr. Friedrich Heidenreich reported that he was able to cure two cataracts and improve one, with current interrupted every five minutes and applied for an hour. In 1912, William Franklin Coleman published a study on this way of electrical treatment. Both eyes of a glaucoma patient became blind, and pilocarpine injections failed to help. Specialists said that the vision of the patient’s right eye was probably lost, and the left eye could only distinguish light. A cathode was applied to the right eye and the current slowly increased for 10 minutes a day. After four days, the patient could see to count his fingers and function with reasonable vision. The negative pole was useful in improving vision; the positive pole was useful in stopping hemorrhages. In one case, three months of treatment made no impression, but positive current showed immediate improvement, and after four months the patient was discharged with vision of 20/30. Some cases had phenomenal improvement, but others weren’t helped. About two-thirds of those receiving electrical treatment got help from electricity. Paul Oudin was the first to try the violet ray on the eyes. Cotton was soaked in salt-water pads, then wrung out and placed over the eyelids. Oudin found that blepharitis [eyelid inflammation] could be cured by 10-minute treatments in two weeks. He was able to improve retinitis pigmentosa. He cured eight of 10 cases of retinal hemorrhages. He had no results in treating glaucoma with his equipment. Trachoma is a viral disease of the eyes, which is spread by flies. In tropical countries such as Egypt, trachoma was a terrible problem. Most people gradually went blind. A few doctors treated it with zinc or copper salts. These were irritating, but slowly cured the disease. Cotton was soaked in salt water and then wrung out and put over the closed eyes. A special branching eye electrode was used to treat the eyes. A 10-minute treatment was administered every day for a week. Then a treatment every other day was given for the next two weeks. This would usually cure the most stubborn cases. Albert Geyser treated 18 cases of trachoma with vacuum electrodes over the eyes. He used three treatments a week, and the treatment lasted from three weeks to three months. Conjunctivitis is a catchall term for eye inflammations. Helping this disorder took from 10-45 treatments. Sensitivity to light disappears after a few treatments. The treatment is effective in curing chalazion, which is a small growth on the eyelid. Generally, 5-6 treatments would cure it. Acne and eczema around the eyes were cured quickly. Dacryocystitis is inflammation of the tear sac, which may result in inflammation of the lids and conjunctiva. A vacuum electrode was applied to the eyes. The inflammatory symptoms were relieved in four cases in 24 hours, and in five more cases the problems cleared up with more treatments. Dr. Lawrence Webster Fox found only one failure in treating 100 cases of eye inflammation. There was relief in iritis but not a cure; however, the treatment’s effect on pain was magical. He treated three cases of toxic amblyopia resulting from alcohol and tobacco use. The degeneration may result in blindness. He found that about 20 treatments restored the patients’ sight. William Snow was noted for his use of electricity in therapy. He remarked: “The use of the vacuum eye electrodes with the static current is of great value in the treatment of epiphora when the tear duct is closed but not stenosed. If a vacuum electrode is held against the canal and a short spark gap employed, it will remove the infiltration and open the canal.” Edgar Cayce mentions the use of the violet ray in eye conditions. He advised treating the third, fourth, and fifth cervicals and the first and second dorsals on the back first. He recommended treating the eyes no longer than one minute. He suggested the eye applicator to clear cataracts. A Chinese peasant was buried in earth by a shell explosion and was unconscious when dug out. Emergency treatment restored him to life, but he lost his sight. Both eyes had no light perception, but light reflexes were present. He suffered from headaches and blindness for 18 years. After his first violet ray treatment, his headache was less severe. After the second treatment his headache disappeared, and his perception of light returned. By the fifth treatment, he was able to recognize people. After nine treatments, he was able to read numbers and words. A woman was treated in a hospital for optical nerve atrophy. She completely lost her color vision and could only count fingers at six inches away. Doctors couldn’t help her, so she used the violet ray. After four months of treatment, she was able to read and write. Glaucoma is one of the most trying disorders to treat. People fear eye operations, and if they wait too long their sight may be gone. A study on the violet ray for glaucoma was done in 1911. A woman had no vision in the right eye and very little in the left. She said that she was able to read and thread a needle two weeks before. Before telling her that her condition was hopeless, Dr. Samuel Risley decided to try the violet ray. She was given 10-minute applications over her closed eyelids. She then had a steady improvement in vision in her left eye. A man had cataracts removed from his eyes. The pressure rose to 90 in both eyes, with a diagnosis of glaucoma. An operation gave him some relief for weeks, but he had pain and an inability to see. Eye drugs didn’t help him. After nothing else worked, he was given violet ray treatments. The ocular tension dropped to 50 after a month’s treatments. Most of his vision was destroyed, but he could see a little. A 78-year-old woman complained of excruciating pain in her left eye. The tension was 90. She was given myotics and violet ray treatments. In three weeks, the tension dropped to 50, and she felt comfortable. Then the eye tension dropped to normal and stayed there. A man had an eye injury and became blind in that eye. Two specialists condemned the eye, and a surgeon wanted to remove it, but the man refused. He put the vacuum electrodes over the eye and alternated the treatment with a negative current. Vision returned to the eye, and the pain disappeared. When the violet ray is used to treat cataracts, there is a “mackerel sky” appearance after treatment because of disintegration of the cataract. The vision is poorer for a few days, and then it becomes much better. The edge of the lens is the first to clear, where the opacity is thinnest. As the eye recovers, the ability to see green returns, followed by blue, red, and yellow colors. A 70-year-old woman had been blind in her left eye because of a childhood injury. She had a cataract on her right eye. She started violet ray treatments, and in two days, she was able to count the number of fingers a foot away and see the green leaves of the shrub in the pot beside her bed. A week later she could tell onions by sight and see the difference between peas and beans on her plate. After two months of treatment, she was able to read fine print and function normally. A 62-year-old woman had a cataract in her right eye for four years and a cataract in the left eye for 15 years. After a week of violet ray treatments, the woman wasn’t bumping into objects so often. After six weeks of treatment, she could see bumps in the sidewalk, instead of having to feel for them. She could now distinguish faces. After three months of treatment, she was able to write and could see her sister’s face. The treatments were taken occasionally, and improvement was slow. Soon she was able to read magazines. A year after her first treatment, she could see the eye of a sewing needle and thread it. A 15-year-old English boy was born with a cataract in his right eye and suffered from severe myopia in the left. He got a small portable violet ray from Canada and began to use it. After a week his vision began to clear. In three weeks, he could distinguish between meat and vegetables on his plate. After using it for three months, he was able to count the number of books on a shelf. Earlier, he couldn’t tell the weeds from the vegetables; now he could weed the garden. A six-year-old child had an unusually severe attack of chickenpox, which damaged both corneas and left him with poor vision. Violet ray treatment was given every other day for six months, and vision returned to 20/30. The companies that made violet rays had testimonials from their customers. One wrote: “I purchased one of your Marvel Violet Rays and with it I cured my eyes that three doctors, two of them noted specialists, gave up as a hopeless case. I got results in the first treatment and could read without glasses – something I could not do before, and now I am practically cured. Another customer wrote: “I wish to say a word in regard to your Marvel Violet Ray outfit. I have been using it on my eye for a pronounced cataract; it has nearly cured it. I have been loaning my outfit to a friend for the same trouble. He is benefited and is ordering one.” No treatment is a panacea for eye conditions, but many more cases where electricity made a major change could be cited. The violet ray was able to relieve the sensitivity to light known as photophobia. It greatly helped Bell’s palsy, which was disturbing the vision of a patient. Negative current and the violet ray in eye conditions often produced wonderful results.
THE VIOLET RAY ON GLANDS
“The key . . . to the understanding of the effects of the currents of high frequency is to remember that they can be made to exercise a manifold action: to increase metabolism, allay sensibility, stir up the sympathetic system of nerves, and increase or diminish the functions of glands, tone up unstriped muscular fiber, and incidentally act as a general tonic.” - The Use of Currents of High Frequency in Diseases of the Digestive Organs George Herschell 1904
“They [high-frequency currents] promote heart action and digestion, induce healthful sleep, rid the skin of destructive exudations and cure colds and fever by the warmth they create. They vivify atrophied or paralyzed parts of the body, allay all kinds of suffering, and save annually thousands of lives.” - Nikola Tesla
The glands pour their secretions into the blood and influence the whole body. Most of the glands lie deep within the body and we cannot influence them readily. A few are close to the surface, and these are easily treated. We notice the thyroid because the throat enlarges when it doesn’t have enough iodine. If we are always tired and overweight, it may be due to a lack of activity of the thyroid gland. If it is too active, we may be lean and restless. Most goiters came from a lack of iodine, but some goiters came from polluted water. The violet ray often worked well for treating simple goiter. One user wrote to say that he used it twice daily on his goiter. After one week, his goiter began to decrease in size. After three weeks, it was not noticeable, and he felt better. One violet ray testimonial reads: “I have used the Renulife Violet Ray generator in the treatment of my goiter with remarkable results. I used it twice daily. At the end of the first week my goiter began to decrease in size. At the end of three weeks, it was entirely unnoticeable, and I immediately began to feel better generally.” The goiter enlarges in autoimmune conditions, and produces the added effect of bulging eyes, which we readily notice in Graves’ disease. In 1864, France appointed a commission to study goiter. It found that half a million inhabitants suffered from some form of goiter. The simple goiter often is an indication of impaired health, but Graves’ disease is a serious health condition. The first attempt to treat the condition electrically was with the Morton wave treatments. A woman had prominent bulging eyes, with a pulse of 160 per minute. The electrotherapist used ten-minute applications of an electrode over the throat. After the second week, the pulse dropped below 90 and the difficult breathing disappeared. The eyes gradually shrank to normal over a period of a year. A second woman showed extreme enlargement of the thyroid gland, with bulging eyes, rapid heartbeat, and nervous symptoms. The static wave currents were used for four months. The symptoms were almost gone, and her gland was much reduced in size. Graves’ disease was also treated with ionization with salt solution. One victim, a 48-year-old man, was compelled to give up his business. He got steadily worse and had marked nervous symptoms. The negative pole was placed over a cloth soaked in salt solution, and a current of 10 milliamps was passed for 15 minutes. The treatment was given daily for the first week, then three times a week. His pulse rapidly lowed. After a month, he was normal and able to return to work. Basal metabolism is a result of thyroid activity. Jacques-Arsène d’Arsonval exposed normal people, and people with low basal metabolism, to his autocondensation couch. Normal people didn’t change, but people with low thyroid activity improved. A 30-year-old teacher had an enlarged thyroid and bulging eyes. She had heart palpitation and great fatigue with no relief. She was treated every fifth day with the static wave current for 30 minutes, sometimes to the thyroid alone, and sometimes to the thyroid and solar plexus. She began to improve, her heart palpitation stopped, and her hair began to grow again. Her bulging throat diminished and the exophthalmos visibly improved. A 58-year-old carpenter had to give up work because of growing feebleness, shortness of breath, constant diarrhea, and general nervousness. There was pronounced goiter and a feeble irregular heart action. The currents were applied to the goiter and above the solar plexus. The improvement was rapid, and in three weeks he was able to resume work. He could eat heartily, and his heartbeat was slow, strong, and regular. When he felt run-down, he would resume treatments for a few days. Violet ray treatments in Graves’ disease were generally given over the thyroid for two minutes and applied to the eyes for one minute. Then half-inch sparks were applied up and down the spine for 10 minutes. The patients were treated three times a week for about four weeks. A woman always had a lump in her throat and noticed that the lump was getting larger. She became very nervous and had heart palpitations and difficulty breathing. She had difficulty swallowing and had to force food down. Her pulse rose to 170. She was given violet ray treatments and her pulse fell back to 82. Her nervousness disappeared, she gained weight, and went back to work. A 46-year-old woman became sleepless, nervous with fears and showed marked protrusion of the eyeballs. Her pulse rose to 115 and her thyroid was moderately enlarged. After the fourth treatment, it began to shrink, and in four weeks it wasn’t noticeable. She gained weight, slept normally, and worked normally. A woman had a history of nervous and physical collapse. Her eyes were markedly protuberant, and her pulse was 200. She was treated three times a week for four weeks, and then twice a week for the next six weeks. After the first treatment, she fell asleep going home and slept soundly for 12 hours. Her pulse dropped by 50 beats after the first treatment. Her thyroid decreased an inch in circumference after the first treatment. Her eyes improved constantly, and her mental state was much improved. Two years later, she was in excellent health. A young schoolteacher came to Dr. Frederic de Kraft suffering from Graves’ disease. Her face was yellow, her tongue coated, and she was weak and nervous. Her heartbeat was 130, and her eyes were bulging out. Dr. de Kraft gave her three diathermy treatments a week and applied the glass electrode to her thyroid. After eight treatments, menstruation reappeared, her pulse rate subsided, her skin lost its yellow color, and she felt well. High-frequency currents could also influence the pancreas. D’Arsonval and his co-workers treated many cases of diabetes with their autocondensation equipment. They gave 10-minute treatments for up to 20 days in a row. This didn’t often change the amount of sugar in the urine, but it did markedly improve the general health. In 1906, Albert Laquerriere and Georges Apostoli treated 34 diabetes cases at their Paris clinic with three treatments per week. They observed an almost constant improvement in the general condition, and an increase in strength with a decrease in diabetic symptoms. There were great variations in results among the early electrotherapists—which may be due to the poor equipment used. Some had poor results, while other claimed good results. They didn’t usually cure diabetes, but they did improve the condition of the patient when there was no insulin. A 33-year-old man passed an average of 16 pints of urine in 24 hours with an average of 32 grains of sugar per ounce. After the first week of high-frequency treatment, the urine fell to 11 pints. After the second week of treatment, it was 7 pints and the sugar fell to 14 grains per ounce. After a month of treatment, there were 3 grains of sugar in an ounce of urine. His weight increased by six pounds, and he felt better, but wasn’t completely cured. A short-wave current of 18 meters has a marked effect in increasing the action of the pituitary. This wavelength penetrates deeply into the head. If the pituitary isn’t operating correctly, the secondary sexual characteristics don’t develop. Stimulation caused normal development of sexual characters and menstruation in women, and the descent of the testicles in men, and the development of normal secondary sexual characteristics. The prostate gland is located at the base of the bladder in men. It is common for the gland to swell when men are in their mid-fifties. This may be a product of aging, or the shifting hormone balance. In 1861, August Tripier devised a urethral prostate electrode, which he termed exciters. At first, he used painful direct current, then he switched to faradic current with rapid interruption. In 1895, M. Porosz devised another stimulation type of current. He found that stimulation of the muscle fibers of the prostate shrank the gland. Most of the early electrotherapists used the Morton wave current. This was similar to the effects of the violet ray. A 63-year-old man was depressed, for he had to get up several times during the night to urinate. He was treated with the Morton currents, and in weeks the prostate returned to normal size. William Snow reported that he was able to cure about 80% of those who came to him with prostate enlargement. He treated 210 cases with the Morton static wave current, and nearly everyone had relief in five to eight sessions. Sometimes it was near normal in only three treatments. A 53-year-old man had frequent urination and trouble urinating. The wave current was administered with a rectal electrode held against the prostate with the patient lying on his side. The gland softened after the first treatment and reduced in size. After the fifth treatment, the gland was reduced to less than half the size at the onset. In five weeks, he was back to normal. Emmanuel Doumer reported favorable results in 122 cases of prostate enlargement by 1906. The best method was using a glass electrode with a treatment for 8-12 minutes. An enema was used first, and the glass electrode was introduced 5-6 centimeters into the rectum, and treatment applied 5-10 minutes. By the third or fourth treatment, the swelling reduced, and after 15 to 18 treatments, it was normal. Often it was near normal with half that many treatments. He also used high-frequency currents to treat impotency. The glass vacuum electrode was applied to the scrotum and penis and the lower region of the spine. After 6-8 treatments, there were often vigorous erections during treatment. The violet ray treatment of the prostate was simple and had no problems or operations. A 79-year-old businessman had to get up to urinate 4 to 6 times per night. After twelve treatments, he had natural urination with little residual urine. A brick mason had an enlarged prostate and had to get up several times a night to urinate. He was treated 10 minutes a time every second day. The surgeon who diagnosed him didn’t want him to try the violet ray treatments, but when he examined him after the treatments, he remarked: “The prostate is gone.” William G. Lewi treated 12 cases of prostatis and got nine cures. These were enlargements marked with cystitis. One patient had been treated for five years and all treatments failed. It took three months to cure him. An 80-year-old man had to be catheterized in order to urinate. After three treatments, he was able to urinate normally.
ALL CONSTITUTIONAL DISEASES BASICALLY ALIKE
Constitutional diseases are made possible by the failure of certain groups of body cells to carry out the Life Process properly. Every constitutional ailment---whether it be rheumatism baldness or any other--- can be traced to the failure of certain cells to either absorb sufficient oxygen, burn it up properly, or completely eliminate the waste. In rheumatism, the failure is in the improper elimination of the waste that clogs up in the tissue and cause the painful swelling. In baldness, the scalp cells have failed to absorb enough oxygen to keep them vigorous and strong enough to grow hair. The causes of every constitutional ailment can be similarly traced to a nonfunctioning of some part of the Life Process of certain cells.
VIOLET RAYS PROMOTE THE LIFE PROCESS
Violet Rays have been proved to have the power of being able to painlessly penetrate the tissues, reach the ailing cells, cause them to absorb oxygen, burn it up, throw off the waste created---in other words, restore the sick cells, to normal functioning under the Life Process, thus putting them in condition to fight for heath. Medical science has found that Violet Rays aid the cell tremendously in carrying on the Life Process; hence, the high esteem in which they are held by the member of the medical profession.

Invention of the Nikola Tesla
Nikola Tesla, the famous scientist. (The one-time associate of Thomas A. Edison) known
throughout the world for his many inventions, especially his development of dynamo and electric motor, invented the Tesla Coil, the forerunner of the modern, portable Violet Ray outfit, back in 1892. Long before this, the medical profession knew that a current of electricity running through the body had a curative effect. The discovery led to the utilization of the so-called faradic and galvanic currents for healing purposes. Secured by their uses, theses currents gave the patient severe pain from the “shocks” the caused. Tesla took the ordinary electric light current and by first passing it through a special coil of his own invention broke it up into an " electric mist" (high frequency) that could enter the body without causing a “shock" He then took this "electric mist" and passed it through a vacuum tube. This action gave off a combination of genuine Ultra-Violet Rays, high frequency curative electricity (“electric mist") and ozone. The Violetta—the well-known portable Violet Ray outfit we manufacture—-is an evolution of Tesla’s revolutionizing invention.
Medical Research Enlarges Violet Ray Usefulness
In the paper he read before a body of scientists in which he described his
invention, Nikola Tesla showed that even he did not realize the curative possibilities of
the results of his great genius. It has proved to be an infinitely greater boon to mankind than he ever dreamed.
