Reviews

"A must-read for everyone interested in the field of light--beginners, experts, lay-people, health and wellness practitioners, teachers, and scientists." * Ray Gottlieb, O.D., Ph.D., Dean, College of Syntonic Optometry *
"Plants use light effectively. Why not humans? Would Mother Nature take a strategy developed so effectively for the plant kingdom and wantonly squander it as she created the animal kingdom? In an articulate and beautifully illustrated book, physicist and long-term president of the International Light Association Anadi Martel authoritatively describes the therapeutic effects of light in a comprehensive, reader-friendly fashion, beginning with the nature of light and the ancient history of light therapeutics all the way to the modern, exponentially growing field of science and medicine that uses light as a foundation. The book is liberally sprinkled with highlighted boxes containing little-known facts and fascinating insights. It's a joy to read. Highly recommended." * Gerald H. Pollack, Ph.D., professor of bioengineering at the University of Washington *
"In this wonderfully detailed and beautifully illustrated book, Anadi has thoroughly documented the present status of this rapidly advancing and very exciting field as has never been done before. Follow Anadi's remarkable scientific and spiritual journey as he uncovers the essence of light and its diverse therapeutic applications. Here you will find the fascinating physics of light described with accuracy that can only be provided by a physicist but also with the clarity that can only come from a person with a real love and passion for communicating science in ways anyone can easily understand. As we move toward the medicine of the future, all of us need to know how light and color can benefit us. Whether light therapy is a new or an old subject for you, this is the most valuable, enjoyable, and up-to-date book you can read." * James L. Oschman, Ph.D., author of Energy Medicine: The Scientific Basis *
". . . a masterful work on the myriad applications of color and light. It is a pleasure to read for all who are interested in the fields of light and color. This book is a major contribution to the field and a valuable addition to any library." * Larry B. Wallace, O.D., Ph.D., former president of the International Light Association *
"Light Therapies is brilliant, a star among books about light. It is a must-read for everyone interested in the field of light--beginners, experts, lay-people,health and wellness practitioners, teachers, and scientists. It covers the broadest spectrum of information about the historic, scientific, healing, and spiritual aspects of light's past, present, and future. . . . A spectacular achievement." * Ray Gottlieb, O.D., Ph.D., dean of the College of Syntonic Optometry *
"An important book that spearheads the new scientific paradigm in health and well-being. With profound insight, Martel explores how light lies at the very heart of our lives and outlines the effects of light on health, brain functions, cellular life, and our overall physical well-being. Here is a book that updates our understanding of physical reality--and how to benefit from it. Light Therapies will change the way we look at medical practice. Light medicine is the future, now. It will tell you everything you need to know--be informed!" * Kingsley L. Dennis, author of New Consciousness for a New World *
"Light Therapies is the best book on the subject I have ever come across. Anadi Martel gives descriptions of ALL of the therapeutic techniques using light and color that he has personally investigated and experimented with. Anadi is also an expert in Buddhist culture which completes his concept of light having three aspects: the physical, the energetic, and that of consciousness." * Daniel Asis, M.D., author of Chromo-Psychotherapies *
"Anadi Martel has written a highly informative book on light therapies. It summarizes and explains the whole spectrum of light-based treatment methods and their broad applications in a beautifully illustrated manner. Surely, this volume will be very useful for beginners as well as for experts." * Detlef Schikora, Ph.D., professor of science and biophysics at the University of Paderborn *
"The kind of light that Anadi brings to us is beyond alternative therapy; it is the healing power of light to restore alignment between the physical and emotional bodies with the reality of the spiritual Source of all light." * Nishant Matthews, founder of Samassati Colortherapy *
"For those who seek a deeper understanding of how light can heal our lives, this timely book is a must-read." * Pauline Allen, principal of the Sound Learning Center (London) *
