What the Violet Ray Is
inflamed condition of the nerves. Any nerve can be affected.
Pain and tenderness extend usually over the whole diseased
nerve trunk. A mild current should be used at first and
electrode kept in close contact with the body, moving it
lightly. In some cases an increase of the pain may be noted at
beginning. However, this state is soon overcome, then a more
powerful spray can be applied.
Effects from Violet Ray
treatments are systemic and not only local. Therefore all
treatments have a fundamental action on health and benefit
nerves and nerve endings.
The Violet Ray High Frequency Current, or as
it is more commonly called, the "Violet Ray," is a new phase of
electricity. It is applied to any part of the human body without
pain, muscular contraction or disagreeable sensation of any kind.
The electrical oscillations representing the High Frequency Current
follow each other with such tremendous rapidity that they outspeed
our nervous sensibility; we do not become conscious of their
presence; in other words: our nerves are insensitive to the
electrical oscillations of the Violet Ray. The oscillations are so
rapid that they exceed many hundred thousand repetitions per second.
The Violet Rays are pleasing, and though most stimulating and highly
invigorating to the entire system, nerves or muscles, cannot record
the presence of their great power.
What Violet Rays Do
Violet Rays or High Frequency Currents benefit
all living matter. Through the glass vacuum applicator light, heat,
electric energy and ozone are created. These forces are uniformly
potent in relieving and eliminating human ailments. Violet rays
present a remedy upon which we can rely. They are positive and
certain in action. They will reach where medicine does not, and
often cannot yet they cause no pain, no disagreeable sensation or
discomfort. They furnish a soothing relief. They destroy germs and
have a strong power over infection. Violet Rays for Well People, Too
Ray treatment is the surest method of relieving pain. Applied to
that part of the body where the pain is severest, the rays and High
Frequency electrical discharge penetrate every cell, tissue and
organ and tranquilize and soothe. They build up the forces of
nutrition and general health. Violet Rays will stimulate and
strengthen the vital organs, develop the body and steady the nerves,
spraying thousands of volts of High Frequency electricity into any
weak, sluggish or painful organ or muscle, purifying and causing the
flood of warm, rich blood to surge through the treated part, at the
same time being painless and pleasant. Violet Rays have only to be
tried to be appreciated.
Even if you are at present strong and well in
every respect, the use of Violet Rays will be of immense benefit to
you. They provide a stimulation to which a healthy body immediately
responds. They safeguard you against the coming illness and
reduction of vitality.
Why You Should Use Violet Rays
Violet Rays should be used by everyone
experiencing sickness or ailments of any kind.
The healing properties of Violet Rays are
manifold, and they accomplish what drugs and medicines never can.
The regular introduction of a vitalizing shower of diffused
electricity into your system is exactly what is needed to make it
function properly and efficiently.
how well you may be feeling today, tomorrow may bring sickness. But
if you have been taking regular treatments with Violet Ravs the
chances that you will succumb to illness are very slight. Violet Ray
treatments keep your constitution at " par."
The healthiest people in the world are those who are always striving
to better their physical conditions. And there is nothing like a
Violet Ray treatment to infuse vitality and energy into your body.
To be healthy, use Violet Rays. To keep
healthy, use Violet Rays.
To Relieve Pains Use the Following Technique
kidneys perform a very important task in our body. They are
the organs of excretion. If their function is somehow impaired
by inflammation due to heavy cold or due to congestion or
other causes, grave con-sequences are resultant.
Violet Rays exert a powerful
influence. The very fact that albumen in the urine quickly
disappears after a few applications alone proves sufficiently
their importance in fighting this class of sickness. Nobody
who suffers from kidney disorders can really afford to be
without a Violet Ray. It helps when other means, especially
drugs, have long been given up as
Always apply as much of a current strength as can be tolerated. If a
person is very sensitive, keep the electrode in close contact with
the painful spot and move it slowly about. If the sufferer from pain
does not object to it, treat through clothing or a towel and cause a
counter irritation by sparks. It depends largely on the part or area
you treat what method should be employed. It is therefore necessary
to adapt yourself to circumstances.
people, after stopping their treatments for many weeks, and even
months, report continual increase in health and strength. As a
matter of fact, the greatest benefit comes after the course of
treatment is over. This answers the question often asked as to
whether the treatment does not have to be kept up indefinitely.
All orificial electrodes must be lubricated
before insertion. They should be properly sterilized. It is wrong to
believe that orificial treatments are painful. There is, in fact, no
other sensation than that of a beneficial warmth during the
application. Orificial treatments do not last over 5 minutes. It is
also advisable to move the electrode during the treatment just
slightly so as to avoid its sticking to the mucous membrane.
Orificial treatments require, for safety's sake and for better
results, always two people, patient and operator. Always turn the
current on after insertion of the applicator and turn the current
off before removing the same.
Preparation for Treatment
Surface treatments can be given in direct
contact with the skin, and also through the clothing. As any
clothing represents an interposed dry resistance, a treatment
through the same would cause small sparks. It depends entirely on
the desired effect, which way to treat, and the instructions given
in our booklet refer to the proper technique. If no sparks are
desired any clothing covering the part to be treated must be

yield to treatment using Electrode No. 5 with the strongest
current that can be tolerated. Treatments should be of not
longer than four minutes' duration and not more than once a
day. Results are not usually apparent until a dozen or more
treatments have been taken.
For sore throats, also for improvement of the voice, the
surface applicator can be used. Singers, actors and speakers
have reported wonderful improvement and
Keep the applicator in close contact with the
body at any part which requires a mild treatment.
Start with the weakest current possible.
Avoid the initial little discharge which occurs when you bring the
applicator close to the body in making the contact. Make contact
quickly and the initial discharge will not be annoying. Do the same
when the treatment is finished. Remove the electrode quickly. This
will save you the little sparks you may otherwise feel. By no means
does this little spark, when making contact with the applicator and
when removing it, hurt. If you think it does, it is imaginary. Just
use common sense and a little judgment and you will find that even
one-half inch of High Frequency discharge does not cause any pain.
Backache, except in cases of strain or internal injury, is a
symptom of some internal disorder such as lumbago and
rheumatism or weak sexual organs, bladder or kidneys. Local
applications will relieve immediate pain but the cause should
be located and treatment applied. Relief from the above
ailments is usually obtained most quickly by local application
on the affected area, using the Surface Electrode with fairly
strong current. |

What the Ozone Treatment Will Do For You
If you lack physical exercise a good number of
so-called functional troubles (of men and women of the sedentary
class) will gradually make their appearance. These are clearly due
to under-oxygenation, which means that an insufficient quantity of
oxygen is absorbed by our system.
exercise, deep breathing, will increase oxygenation and do wonders
to us, as is well known but how often can the person' needy of
plenty of exercise, have same, especially when professional
occupation and duties offer little chance for it? There are also a
good many who may be invalid and should not exert themselves by
physical strain. For all of these the Ozone Treatments will do
The Ozone Generator converts the
oxygen of the air into ozone. Ozone, therefore, is a modification of
oxygen; in fact, it is concentrated oxygen. It has a strong chemical
action. It is a colorless gas which has a peculiar, not unpleasant,
Ozone exists in larger quantities on
mountain tops, at the Sea Shore and in the Country. In cities, and
especially in crowded places, it is hardly recognizable. Oxygen is
as we all know most vital to our welfare; in fact, without it we
could not exist. When life is at its lowest ebb in grave cases of
sickness the physicians resort to the oxygen tank to keep us
breathing and alive. It is therefore not difficult to realize of
what great importance ozone, which is concentrated oxygen, can be to
High Frequency current produces a cellular
massage, the contractile effect being expended upon the individual
cells composing the tissue rather than on the individual muscles.
This form of massage is very effective, penetrating as it does every
part of the body, and can be drawn to any desired part by the
application of another person's fingers to the part of the body to
which treatment is particularly desired, the patient first grasping
the electrode as shown in above illustration.
No. 6 Electrode is especially designed for this treatment.
You can, however, use No. 1 with very good
results; current not so strong, however. Where a very powerful
treatment is wanted the metal Electrode No. 6 is used, but to avoid
the sting turn the current on and off while the person treated has
hand on the metal Electrode as illustrated.
Effects Desired Easily Obtained
Careful study of different ways of
administration should be made before using Violet Ray so as to
secure best results.
For sedative or quieting
results, your entire body can be thoroughly charged with Violet Ray
High Frequency current. You can completely electrify yourself.
Painful sensations by sedative treatments can be calmed, as sedative
action is strongly constitutional in its effects. Nervous ailments
are greatly benefited by sedative treatments. They tranquilize your
nerves. By keeping the electrode in close contact with part to be
treated sedation can be produced locally. Sedative current creates
quick and beneficial results in all nervous conditions. The entire
nervous System is refreshed with a general electrification
Violet Ray can be stimulative.
When an electrode is somewhat lifted during the application or used
through clothing or cloth, a general stimulation is produced. This
stimulation is caused by the many small sparks generally called High
Frequency Spray. They cause a pleasant and tingling sensation and
bombard thoroughly the area which they cover, causing a very
beneficial heating effect at the same time. They also generate ozone
which is directly driven into the tissue, causing the ozonization of
the blood. These sparks are also germ-killing and overcome
Follow Instructions Carefully
It is necessary to give strict attention to
the following instructions to receive benefits if same are
followed, excellent results will positively be obtained.
ABSCESSES Keep electrode No. 1 in close contact with the skin.
Use enough current to get the full effect of the heat generated.
Treatment of 3 to 5 minutes' duration and repeat daily or twice a
day, if necessary. If applied to a developing abscess, its growth
can be arrested.
ACNE (PIMPLES, BLACKHEADS) A common and very distressing
condition in young people, one in which quick and permanent relief
may be obtained by the use of a short spark. Treat the entire
surface for about six minutes, using electrode No. 1. Use electrode
No. 46, creating a mild fulguration spark where blackheads are
deeply imbedded in the tissues, thus softening and permitting their
easy removal. Steaming the face before treatment will be found
beneficial. During period of treatments diet should be carefully
regulated, avoid rich and greasy foods, and keep bowels in a healthy
ALOPECIA (LOSS OF HAIR) Commence treatment with weak current
and increase to medium strength later, by using electrode No. 3.
Pass comb electrode back and forth over scalp for about four minutes
every day. Use same treatment for baldness due to sickness and for
gray hair in order to restore it to natural condition. Electrodes
No. 1 or No. 5 can be used if more convenient.
ALCOHOLISM AND DRUG ADDICTIONS Use surface electrode No. 1 in
alcohol, morphine or opium habits, apply a strong current over
liver, solar plexus and spine, for six to eight minutes daily. In
cocaine habits use a mild current to the soles of the feet, arms and
legs until reddening results. These applications should be made
through interposed towel or clothing. Short sparks are best for
these treatments. Never apply current through shoes.
ANEMIA AND CHLOROSIS Use electrode No. 1 for eight to ten
minutes three to six times per week, treating thoroughly the entire
chest, abdomen, back and spine, thus increasing the oxygenation of
the blood, which is as effective as iron tonics to the system. Ozone
inhalations are helpful and of utmost value in these cases. Use
Ozone Generator No. 28.
Electrode should he applied to the naked body over the chest,
abdomen, back, and particularly up and down the entire spine.
This will have a general stimulating effect through the
increase of the oxygenation of the blood. In this way the
oxygen-carrying powers of the red blood corpuscles are
ARTERIOSCLEROSIS AND HIGH BLOOD PRESSURE Daily treatments of about 8 minutes' duration will lower
blood pressure. As the blood approaches normal, reduce treatments to
three a week, then to twice a week. A treatment every week or two
should be maintained for some time to be sure of the permanency of
results. Apply electrode No. 1 or No. 2, using a medium current
strength over the body generally.
asthmatic conditions, the best results may be obtained through the
use of the Ozone Generator, electrode No. 28. Choking and coughing
fits will be promptly alleviated. A local auxiliary treatment may
also be used for a sedative effect by a gentle massage over the area
with the surface electrode No. 1 and mild current. Also apply
electrode No. 5 to throat glands for about 6 minutes.
ATAXIA Use a sharp spark along the spine, over buttocks,
abdomen and to the back of the legs. Apply electrode No. 1 or No. 4.
Daily treatments lasting about 10 minutes are necessary at first.
They can be gradually decreased to about two a week with the
BACKACHE To relieve pain treat sore muscles with electrode No.
1. As backache may be due to weakness of the bladder or sexual
organs, lumbago, rheumatism, kidney disease, it is important to
treat the cause as well.
BARBER'S ITCH (CYCOSIS) Cleanse the infected area with warm
water and castile soap, and a mild antiseptic wash. Then treat with
mild current from the surface electrode No. 1 in close contact,
followed by a short spark till counter-irritation is produced. The
condition is usually stubborn and may require extended treatment.
BLADDER DISEASE (CYSTITIS) The result of vacuum tube treatment
through the rectum or urethral is remarkable in inflammation of the
bladder. Treatment lasting 7 minutes given daily at first and then
every other day, will clear up urine very fast in nearly all of
these cases. Use electrodes No. 1 or No. 2.
BRONCHITIS Short sparks applied with electrode No. 1 or No. 2
over the chest and back, until well reddened, will give relief. This
treatment may be repeated every hour until a sufficient moderation
of congestion is obtained. More important than the high frequency
application is to ozonize the air by means of electrode No. 28.
FOR THE COMPLEXION
is no more delightful or effective method of removing
blemishes or wrinkles and other complexion disorders than by
Violet Ray treatment. The blood is brought to the surface and
the bloom of youth and health is restored to the cheeks.
Skin-troubles, Acne, Pimples and Eczema respond quickly to
Violet Rays. No beauty specialist is nowadays without a Violet
BRAIN FAG Use electrode No. 1
over the forehead and eyes and to the back of the head and neck with
spark just strong enough to have good tonic effect. In all cases, 2
or 3 minutes' inhalation of ozone (electrode No. 28) is desirable.
BREAST DEVELOPMENT Treat the entire area to be developed. Use
electrode No. 1 for about 5 to 8 minutes daily. Move it lightly over
each side, from the neck downward and also from arm pit to arm pit,
under each breast, pressing lightly upward.
BRIGHT'S DISEASE Apply strong current with electrode No. 1 over
the region of the kidneys for at least 10 minutes every day.
BRUISES Treat injured area with electrode No. 1.
First with close contact and later with gradually increasing spark.
BUNIONS Electrode No. 18 or No. 51, using a fairly strong
current, should be applied directly over the inflamed area followed
by a gentle spark.
CALLOUSES On calloused areas of foot a mild fulguration spark
obtained from electrode No. 20 will soften the hardened tissues so
they can be readily removed. If soreness follows, treatment over the
area with the surface electrode No. 1 in direct contact with the
skin will afford relief.
CANCER Mild forms of cancer are treated with a strong spark.
Use electrode No. 20. Consult authority, as surgery is usually
required in conjunction.
CANKER A medium current for 1 or 2 minutes should be applied
with electrode No. 10 or No. 58, or any suitable dental electrode.
CARBUNCLES Use electrode No. 1 in loose contact with the
inflamed area and pass it back and forth over it for 5 to 10 minute.
This will relieve pain and promote an early ripening of the
carbuncle. Electrode No. 18 is also very convenient.
CATARRHAL CONDITIONS In catarrh of the nose and throat the
ozone generator No. 28 is of great value and should be used two or
three times daily for about 5 minutes at a time, followed by
treatment in the nostrils with the nasal electrode No. 16 or 52 with
mild current for about 3 minutes. Care should be used that the
current is not turned on until after insertion of the electrode.
CATARACT Five minutes daily treatments with electrode No. 18 in
contact with closed eyelids, with not too great an intensity of
CHAFE Use vaseline, followed by a medium current with electrode
No. 1 for 5 to 6 minutes in close contact with skin.
CHAPPED HANDS OR FACE Apply vaseline first. Then use a weak
current with No. 1 electrode for 2 minutes in contact with skin.
CHILBLAINS Use electrode No. 1 for 6 to 8 minutes in contact
with the skin. It may he held steadily over the chilblain or moved
slowly about as desired. Repeat daily or every other day until
COLD HANDS OR FEET Improper circulation in the extremities may
be relieved by a gentle spark over their surface, gradually
increasing until a sense of warmth prevails. Use electrode No. 2.
Repeat often; if necessary, three times a day.
COLDS Cold in the head will be benefited by inhalation from
ozone generator (electrode No. 28), followed by mild current through
nasal electrode No. 52. The surface electrode No. 1 may also be used
over the antrum, mastoid region, and back of neck.
COLD IN LUNGS Treat the chest and back. Follow instructions
given under Asthma. Take ozone inhalations repeatedly for several
minutes. Electrode No. 28.
CONSTIPATION Relief will be obtained by a thorough downward
massage over the abdominal region with surface electrode No. 1
applied first directly to the skin and followed by short spark over
the same area. Ten minutes daily is advised first, later dropping to
two or three times a week. If the constipation is particularly
stubborn, peristaltic action will be stimulated by means of the
insertion of an insulated rectal electrode (Nos. 14, 34, 36 or 63),
properly lubricated, for a period of 4 to 6 minutes. Apply current
CORNS Hard corns may be entirely removed by the application of
the fulguration electrodes Nos. 18 or 51, care being used to apply
the spark particularly upon the hard tissue and not on the
DANDRUFF Shampoo the scalp before treatment, dry it thoroughly
and apply a medium current, with applicator No. 3, using it in the
same manner as an ordinary comb for 3 to 5 minutes. Repeat this
treatment at intervals of 2 to 3 days. Do not use any hair tonic.
DEAFNESS Unless the drum of the ear is ruptured, chronic
deafness may generally be relieved and in many cases entirely cured
by high frequency treatment. Ear electrode No. 10 should be used for
about 4 minutes. The gentle stimulation thus afforded the delicate
aural nerves and the mild massage of the drum will often result in
an immediate improvement in hearing. As a further treatment the
surface electrode may be applied over the mastoid region for 2 or 3
minutes with a gentle, mild current.
DIABETES Apply, electrodes Nos. 1 and 2 over the abdomen, and
if proper diet is observed, results will be quickly obtained. Apply
a strong current for about 8 minutes through a thin towel twice a
DIPHTHERIA Apply electrodes Nos. 10 and 58 to inside and
outside of throat respectively. Ozone inhalations have proven most
beneficial (Ozone Generator No. 28).
DYSPEPSIA Apply surface electrode No. 1 over stomach and solar
plexus. The great tonic effect of ozone inhalations makes it a
FOR THE EAR
inflamed condition of the nerves. Any nerve can be affected.
Pain and Earache, deafness and other disorders of the auditory
organs yield readily to the Violet Ray. In some cases, hearing
has been restored completely.
Use Electrode No. 10, inserting
it into the ear, using a mild current for a short length of
time. Where the pain is acute it is sometimes necessary to
take hourly applications. If heating effect is too marked
during treatment interrupt the application and repeat
exists treat about the ear with No. 1 Electrode from 5 to 6
minutes with mild current.
EARACHE Relief obtained by
application of ear electrode No. 10, using a mild current for 3 to 5
minutes. Applications to the back of the ear and over the side of
the face covering facial nerve with electrode No. 1 assist treatment
ECZEMA A handkerchief laid over the surface will cause a slight
spark and is preferable. If the skin itches hold the electrode
slightly away from the surface. This will relieve and gratify. Use
electrode No. 1 or No. 18.
EYE DISEASES Iritis, retinitis, atrophy of optic nerve,
conjunctivitis, trachoma, glaucoma, incipient cataract, paralysis of
ocular muscles, intro-ocular hemorrhage have all been treated by
high frequency currents. Close eyelids and apply a mild current with
electrode No. 18 or No. 39 for short periods, not exceeding 3
minutes at one time.
FELONS Treat with No. 1 electrode and a mild current in close
contact daily from 4 to 6 minutes.
FEMALE TROUBLES Use electrodes Nos. 13, 30 or 31. They should
be lubricated before insertion. Turn the current on after insertion
of electrode and turn the current off before removing to avoid
unnecessary sparking. A medium current for 5 minutes is applied.
Repeat treatment as circumstances require. During menstruation an
excessive flow of blood may result, as high frequency currents draw
FISTULAS Use electrode Nos. 14, 36 or 63, as indicated.
Lubricate electrode before insertion into rectum. Use a medium
current for about 5 minutes daily.
FLABBY BREAST A stimulating application with the surface
electrode to the relaxed nipple of the flabby breast will
immediately Show its beneficial effect.
FRECKLES Several weeks' treatment will be required. Use
electrode No. 1 with a medium current daily from 4 to 6 minutes.
FROST BITES Treat affected part with No. 1 electrode, using a
mild current for from 5 to 7 minutes.
FURUNCULOSIS Treat with No. 1 electrode with mild or medium
current. Inflammation will cease quickly.
GOITRE The absorption of tissue being necessary, treat with
external throat electrode No. 5 in close contact with the skin and
follow with moderately sharp spark over the surface and sides of the
protuberance. Persistence in this treatment is necessary.
GOUT This condition may be helped by a continued massage over
the area with a surface electrode and a mild current. If pain is
felt at first begin with short treatment and increase. Do not treat
during acute attack.
GRAY HAIR The natural color of hair can often be restored by
patient treatments with electrode No. 3. See under Alopecia.
Sometimes several months are required for results. Keep the scalp
clean. Use a current of sufficient strength for good stimulation
once or twice every day.
is more beneficial to the scalp than the application of the
Violet Ray. It revitalizes impoverished hair, restores its
natural lustre. In order to obtain results it is necessary to
be both persistent and consistent in the use of Violet Ray, as
treatments must sometimes continue over a long period of time
in obstinate cases. Treatments should be from 3 to 5 minutes a
day using the comb Electrode. Do not use hair tonic that
contains alcohol, as this is inflammable. Falling hair can be
stopped in time by Violet Ray scalp applications. Prematurely
gray hair can be restored to its natural color by persistent
applications. Dandruff and other scalp troubles are usually
quickly relieved. |
GRIPPE (INFLUENZA) Treat spine, solar plexus, over eyes and
sides of nose. Inhalations from Ozone Generator (No. 28) will
greatly aid. Intra-nasal applications by electrode No. 52 are also
HAY FEVER Apply electrode No. 1 over the nose and the spine and
No. 28 in nostrils. Anticipate the trouble and begin before
discomfort is felt.
HEADACHES Headaches are from varying causes. If relief is not
had from applying to the seat of pain, cover the spine and stomach.
Apply No. 1 electrode.
HIVES AND RASH Use electrode No. 1 with medium current strength
to affected area. Use vaseline before applying the electrode; 3 to 5
minutes should be sufficient. Repeat daily.
HEMORRHOIDS (PILES) Use hemorrhoidal electrode No. 63 with mild
current for about 4 to 6 minutes, care being observed that the
electrode is properly lubricated and that current is not turned on
until after insertion.
INSOMNIA Cover back of head, neck and eyebrows in order
mentioned. Use electrode No. 1; a strong current is essential in
treating this ailment.
LEUCORRHEA Follow the directions given under female troubles.
Also use electrode No. 4, moving it up and down the spine slowly. A
strong current must be used for about 5 to 6 minutes daily.
LUMBAGO Treat over painful area until all pain is dispelled.
Use electrode No. 1 and as strong a current as can be tolerated.
Repeat treatment whenever pain reappears until cured.
MASSAGE Metal electrode No. 6 to be held by patient in one
hand, turning on current after it has been grasped. Masseur's
fingers will draw sparks to point massaged. Use lubricant while
MUMPS Treat the swollen parts with a medium current, using
electrode No. 1, keeping it in contact for about 5 to 8 minutes.
Repeat as necessary, at least once a day,
NERVOUSNESS Treat the spine, back of head and neck with a mild
current, using electrodes Nos. 1 and 4. Immediate results are felt
in all cases. Use a weak current at first and increase the strength
gradually; 5 to 8 minutes is the average duration of treatment.
NEURALGIA Apply to seat of pain, after applying lubricant,
raising electrode occasionally to produce spark. Treat with No. 1
electrode; time of treatment 5 to 10 minutes.
NEURITIS The first few treatments usually increase the pain,
after which relief is felt, and the current may be increased and a
short spark given. Apply at the seat of pain with surface electrode
is no surer antidote on earth for rheumatism than Violet Ray
treatment. In some cases rheumatism disappears almost
completely after a few
OBESITY Use electrode No. 1 and
apply to affected parts consistently. Begin with a medium current
and increase to full power. Rigorous diet, exercise and personal
hygiene must, of course, be observed.
PAINS Apply at seat of pain until relieved with current and
method to give best results. Use electrode No. 1.
PARALYSIS With electrodes No. 1 or No. 2 treat paralyzed
muscles, employing a current strong enough to produce a half or
three-quarter inch spark. Part of the time keep the applicator in
contact with the skin and part of the time raise it above the
surface to get effective spark.
POISON IVY Apply lubricant first. Use No. 1 electrode or No. 2
edgewise so as to cause plenty of sparking over the whole affected
area. Lift the applicator here and there and treat with a strong
current for from 3 to 5 minutes.
PROSTATIC DISEASES This most distressing ailment, common to so
many men of middle age, is one in which the high frequency current
is almost a specific. The treatment indicated is with the prostatic
electrode No. 9. See Pages 14 and 15.
PYORRHEA Treatments with suitable dental electrode with a weak
or medium current will help to re-establish a healthy condition of
the gums. High frequency treatments promote proper nutritional
improvements and in addition to this have antiseptic and antitoxic
properties. A dentist should always be consulted.
RED NOSE Use electrode No. 1 and apply for short periods, say
about 2 minutes, small sparks by holding the electrode edgeways or
lifting it about one-eighth of an inch. The object is to destroy the
enlarged veins and treatment must not be carried too far at one
time. It should be repeated as condition permits. Several days
between treatments may sometimes be advisable.
RHEUMATISM High frequency currents are of exceptional value in
muscular and in chronic articular rheumatism. The pain will be
relieved by application of surface electrode No. 1 with massage,
using lubricant, if necessary. Follow with fairly strong spark until
pronounced redness is produced. This treatment persistently followed
has in many cases resulted in a permanent cure. While relief may be
obtained in one treatment, a permanent cure may require much time
RINGWORM Use electrode No. 1 and apply short sparks for several
minutes two or three times every other day. A medium current is
sufficient. Move the electrode so as to cover the entire affected
SCARS If the tissue is hardened or callous its removal may be
facilitated by the application of a mild spark through electrode No.
SCIATICA Treat with a sharp spark along the course of the
sciatic nerve until a redness is produced. Use electrode No. 1 or
SKIN DISEASES Treat over the affected tissues with surface
electrode No. 1 held in close contact for from 5 to 15 minutes.
Follow by moderate spark 3 to 5 minutes. Treat once daily. If the
skin is moist, talcum powder should be used so that electrode will
not stick. See also Acne and Eczema.
SORE FEET AND STONE BRUISES Applications with any suitable
applicator in close contact with the skin bring quick relief. Use
lubricant and treat for several minutes.
SORE THROAT (TONSILITIS) Electrode No. 5 is best suited for
external throat applications. Hold directly against the skin with
fairly strong current. The use of the Ozone Generator No. 28 for
several minutes following will also be beneficial.
SPRAINS The pain and soreness following a sprain may be
alleviated by treatment, first with the surface electrode in contact
with the skin and later by a mild spark, gradually increasing in
strength until a hyperemia is produced.
STIFFNESS OF JOINTS AND MUSCLES This
condition is generally due to the over-employment of certain
muscles. The resulting stiffness and soreness may be relieved by the
use of surface electrode No. 1.
ULCERS Apply a strong current with No. 2 electrode for 5
minutes in contact, lifting applicator once in a while to produce
sparks of at least one-quarter inch. Repeat daily.
WARTS AND MOLES These disfigurements, no matter of how long
standing, may be most successfully treated by the application of a
spark through the fulguration electrode No. 20. The greatest care
must be exercised that these sparks do not come in contact with the
surrounding tissues. Permanent results may be expected, and the most
disfiguring warts or moles removed without leaving a trace by these
WHOOPING COUGH Apply No. 1 electrode in the same manner as
explained under Asthma and use also Ozone Inhalations with the Ozone
Generator No. 28.
WRITER'S CRAMP Treat with gentle spark over the affected
fingers and thumb, also massage with surface electrode over palm of
WRINKLES Are commonly caused by using a given set of facial
muscles more than normally. They can be removed by applying
electrode No. 1 or No. 18 with a rotary, massaging movement. With
frequency current revitalizes tired muscles and arrests the
blighting marks of time.
Medical authorities agree that 65% of all men
past middle age (many much younger) are afflicted with a disorder of
the prostate gland. Aches in feet, legs and back, sciatic pains, are
some of the signs. No longer should a man approaching or past the
prime of life be content to regard these pains and conditions as
inevitable signs of approaching age. The Halliwell-Shelton Violet
Ray is used to restore youthful health and vigor and to restore the
prostate gland to its proper functioning.
treating the Prostate through the rectum the technique consists in
placing the patient on one side in the Sims' position with the knees
well drawn up. The No. 9 Electrode is lubricated, inserted in handle
and then inserted into the rectum about six inches with the
depression in the tube turned toward the front or anterior wall of
the rectum so the gland rests into depression for best results. In
Prostatic diseases of all kinds the High Frequency current has
proven most efficacious. If, however, you are fortunate to have a
Low frequency circuit in your machine, that is preferable in this
treatment. For home use a two-piece machine is more desirable on
account of the convenience of turning the current on and off. The
duration of each treatment is 3 to 5 minutes. Results found in all
forms of Prostate diseases are extraordinary. Enlarged Prostate
should show improvement from the very first-about two to three
treatments a week.
Same treatment used with
remarkable results in Senile hypertrophy. Two or three treatments a
week then skip a month.
Directions for Operation
1 Insert the Glass
Applicator into the handle of machine.
2 Attach the plug to the lamp socket.
3 Turn the current on: first, electric light switch; second,
knob switch on machine.
4 Turn the adjusting knob switch to the right or left also to
increase or to diminish the Violet Rav discharge. Also give
extra turn when finished to insure electric current is broken.
5 In the indirect treatment, the party to be treated
should hold the instrument, with the metal Electrode No. 6 attached
in hand. The current should then be turned on and some second party,
with either hand, fingertips or another applicator, draw the current
to the desired spot of the patient's body. This method can be used
for body Massage, facial massage and scalp treatment. No. 1
Applicator may be used in place of No. 6, although it is not so
strong and desired results not so easily obtained.
6 Do not attempt to repair instrument, if the necessity arises,
but write to the factory, advising of your difficulties and we will
inform you what to do.
7 Do not use our instrument in connection with any
tonic containing alcohol on the hair.
8 Any treatment should be started with a mild current and
gradually increased to the required strength.
9 When a treatment is completed, do not forget to turn off the
current at the switch, or to be on the safe side, remove plug
from the electric light socket. Damage arising from carelessness
is not covered in our guarantee.
10 The standard winding for this instrument is 110 Volts. If
voltage is higher or lower than 15 per cent, special windings or
series resistances must be used to obtain the best results. We will
supply all necessary information upon request.
11 Take care of the connecting cords. They should be kept dry
and free from knots and twists and must be repaired when signs of
wear are apparent.
12 Should you break the glass Electrode off in the machine
accidentally, simply take a pair of long-nose plyers and pull out
the broken part. General High Frequency Electrodes
Made from the best annealed imported glass.
Do not confuse the Halliwell-Shelton
with Electrodes made from plain glass.
