The popularity of electric devices was as pervasive a century ago as today. The early naturopaths were themselves smitten with the mysteries of electricity. In an article published in 1900, Schaefer exclaims, Nothing in modern science causes us so much amazement as electricity, the sovereign ruler of all. (Schaefer, 1900, p.110) It was an exciting time with the wireless telegraph, the unrelenting spread of analog telephone systems, and the growth of X-ray use. The world of electricity offered much promise to the medical arts. This fascination is still with us as we are always on the lookout for new diagnostic and documentation tools in the form of devices in providing health care for our patients. One such electrotherapy that was prominent a century ago was the high-frequency device calledViolet Ray. THE VIOLET RAYThe Violet Ray devices were manufactured by many companies but the device essentially looked and worked the same, with the exceptions of milliamperage currents used. The 2 most popular were:The DArsonval type [high frequency, not very high voltage, and high amperage],Tesla Transformer and Coil [very high frequency, alternate current, less amperage than the DArsonval] (Eberhart, 1910, p.30-37)High-frequency currents that were attached to a vacuum tube electrode emitted a violet-colored light when in use. Monell explains: Vacuum electrodes are made in various shapes to suit various purposes and also exhausted to different degrees of vacuum. (Monell, 1910, p.204) The shapes of the electrodes were designed to deliver the current directly to the diseased part and were ideal for aural, nasal or throat work, and for rectal, prostatic, urethral and vaginal treatments. (Monell, 1910, p.205) THE THERAPEUTIC BENEFITS The Violet Ray instrument had numerous therapeutic benefits. The light and thermic properties of the Violet Ray offered a stimulus to blood circulation and also to nerve action. (Martin, 1921, p.443) Martin adds, Light [and color] Therapy also enters as a part of Violet Ray treatment because [color] is produced in the vacuum tube when in operation. The violet light is produced by the many ions of electricity discharged in the vacuum tube bombarding molecules within the tube, becoming most predominant and resulting in the phenomena of exhibiting a Violet light. (Martin, 1921, p.443) However, the purple light, these early naturopaths reminded their colleagues and their patients, is accompanied by Ultra-Violet Rays, invisible to the eye, yet particularly destructive to micro-organism. (Martin, 1921, p.443) Ultraviolet is well known for its germicidal activity.Monell and Eberhart outlined specific protocols for treating numerous diseases affecting every system in the body. The Violet Ray was effective in reducing congestion and inflammations, (Monell, 1910, p.258), inducing relaxation in cardiac and nerves, (Monell, 1910, p.88) and as a non-irritating antiseptic, healing skin lesions and infections. (Monell, 1910, p.102) In EberhartsA Working Manual of High Frequency Currents,eight constitutional effects are listed:Increase general metabolismIncrease glandular activityIncrease temperature and bodily heatIncrease oxidization and hemoglobinIncrease secretionsIncrease eliminationLower blood pressure when hypertension existsSoothing to the nervous system(Eberhart, 1920, p.64) Some of the conditions that the Violet Ray was used for included: neuritis, neuralgia, rheumatism, gout, sciatica, diabetes, asthma, dyspepsia, impotence, influenza, leucorrhea, paralysis, pneumonia, gonorrhea, hay fever, high blood pressure, anemia, and a wide range of other conditions. (Puderbach, 1927, p.134) Reading through this list of ailments, one might conclude that the Violet Ray was a type of panacea. Monell, for example, utilizing the Violet Ray, lists many treatment plans in his book for chronic nephritis, tuberculosis, rheumatism, gout, headaches, neuralgias, and digestive complaints, to name a few. Eberhart lists an equally impressive list of conditions that Violet Ray high-frequency current successfully treated in their clinical experience.Edgar Cayce recommended the Violet Ray for alternative Holistic therapy in over 900 psychic readings. The Violet Ray is a Tesla Coil High-Frequency Argon Gas healing device.The Edgar Cayce Clinicalso used the Violet Ray during its electrotherapy sessions on its patients for pain, skin conditions and spinal issues. With the rather unique varied shaped electrodes this unique instrument was used during Cayces day by physicians and laypeople. Cosmetologists still use it today for acne, wrinkles, psoriasis, and stimulating hair growth and rejuvenation. The Violet Ray is making a come back today as a pain relief therapy along with skin rejuvenation and hair growth. Vintage Antique 1920s Medical Device MASTER HIGH FREQUENCY Violet Ray Generator.
