Of all environmental factors, light and colour are the ones that have the swiftest and most significant impact on our well-being.
This authoritative guide shows how to benefit from light in all its forms, including sunlight and electric, coloured, ultra-violet and laser light. It explains how light works and how we perceive it; makes sense of the confusion about whether sunlight is a friend or a foe; and suggests practical ways of getting the balance and intensity of light and colour that's right for you.
The book discusses 33 therapies involving light and colour, from do-it-yourself psoralen-UVA (PUVA) therapy for eczema and psoriasis to treating cancers with photosensitising drugs and red light. It explains how they work, what they are used for and how reliable they are likely to be. The book also includes a directory of 57 common ailments, from acne to wound healing, which may benefit from such treatments.
