Some Secrets of a Healthy House

Editorial Feb 2019

At one of his seminars, homeopath Robin Murphy said that you have to know many healing methods, because you might not find the remedy, you won’t have it handy, or the situation calls for something else. My wife Janice and I subscribe to that completely, and so our house has an array therapies and devices to handle a wide range of problems.

Of course, we have hundreds of remedies, occupying cabinets, shelves, drawers, just about everywhere. Almost every room has a repertory and materia medica and there are empty bottles, mortars and pestles, alcohol lamps, tinctures, graduated cylinders….   And then we also have:


We use autopathy bottles developed by Jiri Cehovsky, for quickly potentizing one’s own saliva, breath and anything else for that matter. These use the vortex method and can produce a 200c potency in just a few minutes.  There have been times when the simillimum was evasive and autopathy won the day. His latest book Autopathy Handbook is now available. You can also visit Jiri’s website to learn more. Here’s a review I did of his earlier book.


Homeopathic remedies are essentially frequencies, but there are other ways to apply frequencies. The Spectrochrome method of using colored lights to heal was developed by Dr. Dinshah Ghadiali (1873-1966).  Dinshah, as he was known, established a system that used 12 specific colors shined directly on the body in order to restore homeostasis. Anyone can use this at home, and it doesn’t require special medical knowledge. All one needs is a set of the colored filters, a small theatrical lamp and a list of the best times to take a treatment, called a “tonation”. I’ve used Spectrochrome for over 20 years and have given numerous lectures on it. I’ve found it effective for both acute and chronic health issues. At the house we have several lamps for taking tonations, and often the cats will lie next to us under the lights (which work just a well for animals) You can read all about it in this little book: “Let There Be Light”, written by his son. It can be ordered from his website ($12) along with a $3 membership, which will provide the important time schedule for tonations.  http://www.dinshahhealth.org/   The filter, lamp and book can also be had from Products on Demand.


About 30 years ago I spent many days researching magnets at Drexel Institute’s library in Philadelphia. I read books so old that the pages threatened to crumble.  I learned that the North and South poles have specific and very different effects on the human body. North poles normalize pH, oxygenate the cells, reduce pain and inflammation, trigger the release of melatonin from the pineal gland and stimulate natural growth hormone. They reduce cellular edema, clear toxins, slow electrical activity in the brain and tend to inhibit the growth of parasites. North poles also help offset the effects of electropollution.  South poles have essentially the opposite effects, so North poles are generally used for healing purposes. You can use a compass to determine the North pole.  Nowadays I use a magnet board under the mattress. I constructed this with about 140 small magnets, North side up, glued an inch apart on a wooden board. Aside from its other benefits, I find I can get by with much less sleep!The company Polar Power Magnets has the Magnetic Health Quarterly covering various topics. The one called Magnetics of Sleep actually covers a lot of basic information. It’s based on the work of Dr. William H. Philpott, one of the pioneers in the field.


No healthy house would be complete without a vegetable juicer. Raw vegetable juices, such as carrot, beet, spinach, cucumber can be used to detoxify and rebuild the cells of the body. The art of using juices this way was taught by Norman Walker DSc (1886-1985), who believed that raw foods and juices were the path to health. Dr. Max Gerson (1881 – 1959)used fresh raw juices as an important component of his famous anti- cancer therapy.   (http://gerson-research.org/)  To maintain health, I’ve been juicing on and off for 30 years and have found raw vegetable and fruit juices to be life sustaining. They’re also delicious!  There are many good juicers available. I’ve used the sturdy Champion juicer, which has been chugging along for a few decades. There’s a little book on juicing from Norman Walker that’s still in print.

My wife Janice is a Reiki master, craniosacral therapist, certified massage therapist and aromatherapist. Those skills, along with all the above modalities provide lots of options for us and all the people we’ve taught.

  • Alan, very uplifting editorial! I have a Champion juicer too, bought it decades ago–I could probably never afford to buy it today! Fortunately, the average decent juicer costs around 100 dollars and should be considered indispensable for anyone who’s got a disease.

    • Hi Elaine,
      I think juicers have saved very many lives. Champion juicers sell for about $250. Not bad in today’s market for a product which will last 30 years!

  • Thank you so much. I live in an Allopathic environment where Homeopathy etc is considered ‘placebo’, ‘scam’, ‘freaky’ and so on. Reading your editorials gives me a sense of kinship and bolsters my faith in myself and my chosen methods of healing. I will indeed check out the things you mention.

  • Yes, it’s important to have community support when using alternative therapies. The conventional wisdom is often far from wisdom. I’m glad the editorial was helpful!
