The Migraine Case

BILL came to us because no-one had succeeded in getting rid of his migraine. As blue is the colour which we recommend, we started with this colour. However, Bill said: “I hate blue.” So we were stuck because to treat successfully we need the patient to at least accept the treatment colour. Bill refused and we were unable to help him. At the third consultation I asked him: “Has there been any time when you were experiencing blue and something negative happened at the same time?” The answer was “No.” But I persisted. “Think back – such a colour dislike can hang in your mind for years.”

To this Bill replied: “I think this is unimportant but for what it’s worth . . . no, I won’t even mention it.” There was suddenly in Bill an expression of fear, so I asked: “Was it something that frightened you?” “Oh, that’s some 36 years ago when I was only 8 years old.” “It could, nevertheless be important, even today,” I replied. “I was travelling in a night sleeper train between London and Edinburgh when the train became derailed and I fell out of the bunk. The first thing I saw was the little blue night light over the door, still shining – but that’s impossible to matter now!” I remarked to Bill: “So you are now all right? Apart from your migraine, If I am to help you to overcome this you must start saying thank you to the blue light which signified even then that you are alive. Do you feel you can accept blue now?” “Yes, I think I could.”

Thereafter, Bill overcame another small dilemma. He proposed to redecorate his office and blue was the recommended colour. After four monthly treatments Bill felt that he had really benefited very much. I met him in the street one day and I asked: “Did you paint your office walls blue?” “Oh yes, you were right; the ICI interior design advisors also agreed but with one exception – that the wall behind my desk must be multi-coloured. (Bill was a financial advisor and the clients would always face that excitingly decorated wall.) Their interest would thus be transferred from what Bill was saying to this wall. After a while Bill would say to his client. “This is the document you need now to sign here.” No client wants to admit his ignorance. We at the treatment centre are aware that this is colour manipulation. Bill never had any more migraine.

The Colostomy Case

KATHY: This lady came to us as a last resort to overcome her rejection problem with the colostral pouch. She emptied her handbag on the carpet so as to show me her desperation over 31 different allopathic drugs she had to use each day. K looked ashen grey and was 42 years old. At my first encounter I would have assumed her to be 68/70 years old. She was not supposed to say that the Ward Sister told her to come and see me.

We treated her here three times in the first month and then for two years thereafter twice a month. After the third treatment the improvement in her appearance was unbelievable – she had rosy cheeks and looked almost her real age. Using the Hygeia Colour Therapy Instrument we treated K. with the colour Turquoise. Over the ensuing two years our diagnosis showed Turquoise to be the significantly recurring colour. (Turquoise is the colour which supports and strengthens the immune system.) Coloured full spectrum stained glass filters are used.

Each treatment lasts for 19¾ minutes and the production of the diagnostic chart takes up some 25 minutes. The Hygeia method uses only white robes, in which the patient is clad. Each treatment ends up with colour counselling and homework with colour for the patient.

Very recently I met Kathy – I did not at first recognise her. She said: “Theo, you have saved my life,” then she drew me closer and said: “They operated on me and opened my anus again so that I can now eat all I want and feel very well.”
