When I heard about raphaology and what it was about, it immediately made sense to me. The principles are basic — give the body what it needs to heal, and it will heal. However, the American diet is so far off track. If we can get back to the basics, get back to the foods that have not been altered by man through genetic engineering and foods that have been grown in mineral rich soil, I believe we will be able to get back to a state of health that will allow us to enjoy our lives again.

Basic raphaology starts with the sun; it provides the energy that plants need to grow. Some plants absorb a specific color frequency from the sun. For example, avocados absorb a gold light. Also, each one of our hormone-producing glands absorb a frequency from the sun; our pituitary also absorbs gold light.

Each hormone-producing gland governs a set of organs; for example, the pituitary gland governs the gallbladder, the large and small brains, the spleen, the teeth and sinuses and the tonsils. In order for this set of organs to function effectively, the pituitary needs gold light so it can produce the hormones it needs to support these organs. If you are gold light deficient, you might start experiencing problems with these organs. You might also experience a lot of worry, stress or guilt. When you start eating the food that supports the pituitary gland — in this case lemon — this could help bring you out of these negative emotions and give your pituitary what it needs to support the organs it governs.

If damage has been done to the glands and organs of the body, specific herbs are used to repair it. If you want to boost the function of glands and organs, eat foods that provide a specific light frequency from the sun. It’s a pretty simple system.

To begin the healing process, you can take tinctures, drink herbal teas made straight from bulk herbs, and eat the foods for which your body is asking. Knowing what your body wants is done through testing the feet. This is similar to reflexology, yet it takes it a step further by determining what the body is asking for through muscle testing. If you test strong, your body wants the food; if you test weak, your body doesn’t want the food. This is how we determine where your body wants to begin the healing process.
