    I burned by right foot when I accidentally tripped into a campfire with bare feet. By that night I had massive blisters about the size of ½ lemons all over my foot and could not step on it.

    My wife set up turquoise light to shine on my foot all night long and I stuck my foot out of the covers, under the light, for over a week. The blisters went down in size every day. Within a week the blisters had dried up and pealed off leaving fresh new skin underneath. I never had any scarring.

    Does any have any experience with Spectro Chrome Therapy on depression and / or Paranoia?

    I have just received the book Let There Be Light and a set of colour filters however from what I can see there is no mention in the book about psychological disorders. Any experience would be much appreciated.

    According to Darius Dinshah, color schedule #323 in “Let There Be Light” has suggestions. The subject is complex and may not have a simple answer but it is worth trying as suggested.

    I find the when in doubt, just using green on the whole body can have amazing results. It makes me feel so much brighter, happier, calmer and more energized at the same time. That may be because when there are imbalances in the body, the emotions and state of mind are affected. Green tends to balance things out, and that’s why I feel so much better.

    Where do I find the : Roscolene filter tints
    Thank You

  5. colorlight says:

    There are several places to get Roscolene filters online:

    Stage Spot – Dinshah Health Society Roscolene Colors

    Ken Adachi is also selling them in small sets, so you don’t have to buy the full large-sized filters. Here’s his website: Roscolene filters

    Pre-assembled sets: Color Therapy Filters

    Filters and light fixture available here: Products on Demand

    Modified version for “Color me Healthy:” Theater House

    Now, you can get Spectrochrome Glass Filters
    They are the only glass filters calibrated to produce the Dinshah colors.

    You can also try calling a local Theater lighting supply. Many of them will order the Roscolene filters for you (if they handle the Roscolene brand).

    I have a question about the Spectrochrome Glass Filters. It claims that it would only take 20 minutes (instead of one hour) to tonate for each color. Is that valid? Thank you for your answer in advance. Jenren

  7. colorlight says:


    If you are talking about the glass filters on this website: http://www.spectrochrome.net I could not tell you as I have not tried them and know little about them. These glass filters are not made by, nor endorsed by the Dinshah Health Society. Some people that have tried them, have reported disappointing results. I’m sure other find them valuable, but because these filters are not endorsed by the Dinshah Health Society, I can not recommend them.
    The roscolene filters work very well, are time-tested, and are far less expensive.

    Color-charged water – Once it is charged, how long can it stay charged? Can I store it for later use? How much water to drink each time? 8 oz or more?
    Tonation time – is it okay to tonate more than one hour? Sometimes I would drift into sleep and wake up more than one hour later.
    Thanks again!

    I asked the Dinshah Health Society to respond to your questions, since they are very specific. Here are their answers:

    Color-charged water – Once it is charged, how long can it stay charged? Can I store it for later use? How much water to drink each time? 8 oz or more?

    Q. Color-charged water – Once it is charged, how long can it stay charged? Can I store it for later use?

    A. Since this does not cause a chemical change in the water which can be tested, we feel it should be charged and consumed promptly. There must be a degrading of its energy at some rate though at a rather slow pace.

    Q. How much water to drink each time? 8 oz or more?

    A. Dr Babbitt used a few ounces at a time, but it is not like a drug which increases the effect according to the dosage – 4 to 8 ounces would probably give all that can be expected.

    Q. Tonation time – is it okay to tonate more than one hour? Sometimes I would drift into sleep and wake up more than one hour later.

    A. One hour at a Forecast time is the norm though there have been instance of hypersensitivity where a shortened time was preferred,. Around-the-clock tonations have been used to control the itching from poison ivy. Tonating while asleep is acceptable.

    Thanks again!

    Does one suppose to tonate only twice a day (one in the day and one at night)? But a lot of symptoms require tonating with more than two colors. How would that work?
    For example, #296 Abscess (p. 87, Let there be light) has 7 color filters listed. What’s the best way to handle that? Thanks again!

  11. colorlight says:


    Tonate with only one color at a time. So if you tonate with green in the morning, you can use Indigo in the afternoon or evening. Make sure that at least 4 hours go by between tonations.

    Generally, the way to handle the different colors listed is to start with the first one. In most cases, that is green, because green is the balancing color and the best place to start (however, if you have a fever, you could start with blue or turquoise.)

    So if we are looking at the tonation schedule for abscesses, start with the Green systemic front for your first tonation.

    For the next tonation, later that evening or the next day, use Indigo on the affected area.

    The next suggestion is orange, but only if the abscess is in an area where it can break through the skin. If not, you can skip orange.

    Magenta is suggested only if fever is high. If there is no fever, you can skip magenta.

    Blue is also suggested if fever is high. Again, if there is no fever, there is no need to use blue.

    So, if there WAS fever, you would have used magenta on the abscess, followed by blue systemic front. If not, you would have skipped to turquoise systemic and the affected area.

    After a few tonations of turquoise (continue with the same color as long as you feel you are getting results), you can try indigo on the affected area – or you can alternate between turquoise systemic and indigo on the area.

    I hope that gives you an idea of how you can use the color schedules.

    Part of figuring out what to do is experimenting, part intuition and a lot is observing what happens when you use a certain color. If one color doesn’t seem to do anything for you, try another. Occasionally, a color may see too strong. In that case, either cut the time of the tonation down, or use a closely related color for a few tonations, then try the strong color again and see if your body does better with it.

    Cataract – How effective is Spectro-chrome color therapy to reverse or at least slow down the incipient cataract? Has anyone tried with good result? Thanks again!

  13. colorlight says:


    We have had reports of successful use. Due to so many variables such as age, heredity, stress, diet, and other living habits , it cannot be foretold at what level change may occur. We feel it is certainly worth trying.

    – Best wishes from DHS.

  14. jenrenn light says:

    Could I tonate more than three times a day?

    Second, How long (number of hours) should I wait between two tonations? Of course, I follow the forecast time as closely as I can. Thank you very much!


  15. colorlight says:

    One of the things to keep in mind is that color therapy encourages your body to heal. Tonating more than twice a day may stimulate healing faster than you expect and could make you very uncomfortable or put you into a healing crisis.

    Very often, you’ll get a “cleansing effect” which is really your body throwing off toxins (diarrhea, headache, runny nose, possibly fever, etc). If your body is throwing off too many toxins at once, it can be overwhelming. That’s why only two tonations a day are recommended. One is usually enough.

    Personally, I wouldn’t tonate more than twice a day unless I was badly burned or had a high fever – or maybe if I was doing just 15 minutes each tonation (that would only be if the light felt so strong that I couldn’t tolerate it any longer). For normal things, and especially chronic conditions, I would give my body time to adjust. Remember it took a long time for my body to get into that condition, and the body will need time to reverse it.

    There is no set amount of time between tonations, but I feel that at least 4 hours is needed, and 6 hours are better.


  16. Jenren Light says:

    “Let there be light” – I have the sixth edition. Do I need to order the latest edition (11th) in order to get many important revisions?
    Tonation distance – What is the ideal distance for tonation? 3 feet? Would 5 feet be okay? Thank you!

    • colorlight says:

      I have the second edition and it’s still great. The new editions do have a few more tonation schedules for more conditions, but they are otherwise the same, so you’re probably OK with the sixth.

      A good distance for tonations is about 3 feet. Five feet is OK for whole body tonations if you are using a 40 watt bulb, but I think 8 or 10 feet could be too far. If you are tonating a smaller area with a small light, like a tooth in your mouth with a flashlight, getting much closer (an inch or two) is just fine (and necessary).

    Hi All,

    I am looking for an alternative treatment for my sister who has dark brown birthmark. Birthmark is on foot covering 6 x 8 area. She has tried laser treatments, creams, bleaching but nothing worked. She seems to be very depressed about her situation because of this birthmark. It seems she is unable to live her live and pursue her career goals because of lower self-esteem.

    I was doing some research in alternative therapy to treat birthmark and by accident came across color therapy using Dinshah’s Spectro-Chrome. Does anyone have any idea which color to use on Birthmark area? Any help about color suggestion is highly appreciated, Thank you for your time.

    Peace and good health,

  18. colorlight says:

    This may not be in our province though orange/lemon/turquoise can be tried. Since this is not really a disorder, we cannot say what effect may be had – we would like to hear of the results.

    Best wishes from DHS.

  19. Raj says:

    Thank you for suggestion of colors to try on affected area of birthmark. We will try in this order only on the affected area first:
    1) Orange, 2) Lemon, 3) Turquoise

    I will update you in a month or so.

    Peace & Good health to everyone…

    Does the amount of lumens and color temperature matter when shopping for an incandescent bulb?

    • colorlight says:

      A bulb with color temperature is a bulb that has been altered to produce a certain spectrum of the light in higher or lower degrees. This is not advisable for Dinshah Color Therapy.

      The lumen is a measure of the total “amount” of visible light emitted by a source. It does not refer to the power (wattage), only to the eye’s perception of the wavelengths of light.

      According to Wikipedia:

      On September 1, 2010, European Union legislation came into force mandating that lighting equipment must be labelled primarily in terms of lumens, instead of watts of electric power consumed.[7] This change is a result of the EU’s Eco-design Directive for Energy-using Products (EuP).[8] For example, according to the European Union standard, an energy-efficient bulb that claims to be the equivalent of a 60 W tungsten bulb must have a minimum light output of 700–750 lumens.

      There is more info here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lumen_%28unit%29

      The best thing for Dinshah Color Therapy is an old-fashioned, incandescent, clear lightbulb that is 40 watts or less.

  21. M says:

    Also, are incandescent bulbs the best option at the moment?


    • colorlight says:

      Correct, with a caveat…

      Actually, the best thing for Dinshah Color Therapy is sunlight. Only natural sunlight gives you the full light spectrum in the perfect amounts.

      After that, a standard, old-fashioned, incandescent, clear lightbulb that is 25 to 40 watts comes closest. Any more than 40 watts is unnecessary and can melt or warp the color filters.

      Typical fluorescent bulbs have large energy peaks in the yellow, green and violet areas. Full-spectrum fluorescent lights (Ott-Lite) also have many large energy peaks and other areas that are weak. Many of the newer “hi-tech” fluorescents have similar characteristics.

      Even “full-spectrum” neodymium incandescent bulbs (Chromalux, Bulbrite, Enrich, etc) are not full spectrum at all. They have a virtual absence of yellow frequencies.

      The spectra of halogen bulbs is also similar to the sun’s, however, it is weighted more towards the red end. Halogen bulbs are also hotter than incandescent lights, so if you use them, move the filter further away from the bulb.
