[C.E. Iredell/review Dr. George Burford]
"Furthermore, one fact is perfectly clear, and that is, that under the influence of Colours, even when X-rays and Radium have ceased to help, the pain of a malignant lump may disappear; the tumor be reduced
in size; offensive discharge dry up; and the duration of life be prolonged".
"The first experiment with Color was made by placing a piece of violet glass against a malignant swelling in a patients neck, and holding an ordinary electric glow lamp by it for an hour. The patient experienced
definite soothing effects, and the experiment was therefore repeated in other cases. It was noticed that the more intense the colors used, the more effective the application seemed to be".
Adjuncts to this elementary procedure were continuously devised during the years of observation. Intermittent radiation through apertures in a revolving disc; variations in colors by
different colour plates on the same disc; time variations in the color ray radiation through the disc apertures; the use of vulcanite rings for a theoretical "insulation"; the employment of electro- magnets, converting
the room into a magnetic field; the estimation of the high frequency resistance of the patients body, in electrical ohms, before and after each sitting; the use of silk screens to completely surround the radiation
mechanism and the patient; the addition of wireless valves; all these were made co-operant to the main factor in procedure the direct utilisation of coloured light rays.
Numerous observations were made, verified by repetition, of a character specially interesting to the Homoeopathic expert.
As regards the subjective sensations of the patient: "these are of considerable importance, and in actual practice it is a great convenience to assume that they are due to a real physical condition".
Concerning the local and constitutional factors in treatment: "No individual case of Cancer should be approached only from what may be described as a purely surgical point of view which, while aiming at the
eradication of the tumour, is apt to over-look the general condition of the patient. This method, however, is the only one at the disposal of ordinary surgery".
Again: "Colour in certain cases produced effects on the body quite distinct from, and additional to, the effects of Colour on the tumour itself and in some cases were more important than those on the actual growth".
Concerning the actual practical results of the Colour method of treatment: perhaps the most spectacular case cited is that of a patient with pain in the back, which proved on X-ray examination to be due to malignant
invasion of the spine. The pain improved and finally entirely vanished, by the use of yellow light applied to the painful area. A second X-ray examination showed that the growth had disappeared.
The type of work is similar to that carried out by Rollier at Leysin for Tubercle. The utilisation of the influences of Nature in exciting a curative reaction of the bodily powers against pathological change is new in the
sphere of malignancy, and brings additional hope to both physician and patient that the circle of controls making for the elimination of Cancer-growth is ampler than hitherto conceived.
