In the early 1970's, Peter Mandel developed a healing method based on colours, called "Chromotherapy". Every colour emits a certain vibration (frequency) that reaches (informs) the cells, rebalancing and bringing them back to a state of health by means of a sort of self-healing. Chromotherapy has proven to be very effective in children too. It has positive effects in the improvement and in many cases the healing of relapsing diseases such as:
- chronic bronchitis
- lumbar pain
- bone diseases
- hepatic and renal colics
- behavioural disorders
- multiple sclerosis
- ... and many other deseases
Moreover, it is recommended to accomany convalescence or for preventive purposes.
Most diseases are psychosomatic and Chromotherapy may considerably contribute to achieving positive results. Chromotherapy, namely "treatment with colours", has been known since ancient times. Many peoples use coloured environments or clothes to heal a number of illnesses still today. Also colourpuncture is a non-invasive therapy which involves beaming coloured light onto certain points of the skin. Every colour has a specific wavelength which produces the therapeutic effect. This wave provides impulses to the energy channels of the body, just like the meridians of Chinese acupuncture. The basic units of light are the photons, weightless particles travelling at the speed of light (300 thousand km/sec.).
German biophysicist F. A. Popp was able to scientifically demonstrate that each living cell emits ultra-weak light radiotions, called "biophotons", similar to the radiotions that can be seen when oserving a lighted candle at a distance of twenty kilometres. This electromatnetic vibration triggers a process of intra-cell communication and Popp himself defines light as the "language of cells", able to regulate all the biophysical processes of the body. Our body is made up of fifty billion cells!
Chromotherapy is the method that teaches the body to restore communication with itself. In addition, it is a holistic therapy since it does not heal the pain directly, as when taking a medicine, but it rebalances th basic energy disorder which is causing the symptom. Therefore, this type of therapy does not merely address the disease, but it involves the whole person.
