Dinshah was interested in helping people with mental disorders. His research determined that the color violet acted as a motor depressant. Therefore it was useful in cases of insanity, in which violence was evident. Violet was found to reduce excessive irritability and to relax the sufferer. Violet will also be beneficial in heart conditions where there is over-activity of the heart muscle. Finally, another attribute of violet is that of a leukocyte builder, or builder of white blood cells in the blood.
Today, in the United States, there is an epidemic of opioid abuse in patients seeking relief from pain. Codeine, morphine, and other derivatives of opium are frequently prescribed by doctors for pain relief. Unfortunately, these drugs are highly addictive with severe side effects including death in many cases. Dinshah considered this criminal negligence on the part of the health provider. The color indigo arrests and controls abnormal gland activity, thereby acting as a pain reliever, sedative, and hemostatic. It will shrink tissue and help dry the area. Indigo acts as phagocyte builder it helps destroy micro organisms.
Dinshah’s first attempt at using color therapy was in 1897 when a young woman, Jerbanoo Framji Jussavala, suffering from severe dysentery whose case was considered hopeless by her physicians. Her mucous colitis was successfully treaded by Dinshah using the color indigo. The patient was still alive in 1940 as reported by Dinshah.
Dinshah said vomiting is nature’s safety valve. Improper materials will first cause sensory stimulation, followed by motor stimulation. Orange is indicated, and finally, to stop the retching, use indigo.
Dinshah pointed out that all inflammatory conditions have an excess of blood flowing through the affected area. Since all inflammations show signs of tumor (swelling), calor (heat), and dolor (pain) which are characteristics on the infra-green side of the spectrum, the remedy lies with the ultra-green colors.
Dinshah P. Ghadiali, the originator of the colored light-healing science, wrote profusely about his thoughts on human diseases. He looked at cancer as nature’s most powerful effort to purge the body of its undesirable materials. Cancer, he observed, was a common disorder of meat-eating and smoking countries. He believed animal foods produce foul emanations and the chemicals in tobacco will eventually take their toll. Traditional therapies like surgery cannot eradicate the disease and radiation therapy will often make matters worse. In Spectro-Chrome therapy, since cancer is a chronic disorder, the color lemon, which is the chronic alternative, is used to normalate the disorder. The color indigo may also be used to tonate, or help shrink the tumor and control bleeding.
Dinshah generally characterized childhood diseases as acute communicable disorders stating they usually show symptoms including fever and skin eruptions. Examples of these diseases include measles, mumps, diphtheria and whooping cough. In Spectro-Chrome Metry, diseases of this type require the acute alternative, which is the color turquoise. Blue will help control fever and green acts as a disinfectant, germicide and detergent. If there is a persistent cough and no fever, lemon may be used for its expectorant effect.
Dinshah was vehemently opposed to vaccinations and called them a curse. He said the introduction of any foul matter into the blood will produce powerful surges of reactions, calling them the resentment of nature against the interference with her rhythmic and lawful functions. Compulsory vaccinations, he posited, never failed to leave a trail of various disorders.
