NEURITIS
 
     Is an inflamed condition of the nerves. Any nerve can be affected. Pain and tenderness extend usually over the whole diseased nerve trunk. A mild current should be used at first and electrode kept in close contact with the body, moving it lightly. In some cases an increase of the pain may be noted at beginning. However, this state is soon overcome, then a more powerful spray can be applied. 
     Effects from Violet Ray treatments are systemic and not only local. Therefore all treatments have a fundamental action on health and benefit nerves and nerve endings. 
 
 
What the Violet Ray Is

    The Violet Ray High Frequency Current, or as it is more commonly called, the "Violet Ray," is a new phase of electricity. It is applied to any part of the human body without pain, muscular contraction or disagreeable sensation of any kind. The electrical oscillations representing the High Frequency Current follow each other with such tremendous rapidity that they outspeed our nervous sensibility; we do not become conscious of their presence; in other words: our nerves are insensitive to the electrical oscillations of the Violet Ray. The oscillations are so rapid that they exceed many hundred thousand repetitions per second. The Violet Rays are pleasing, and though most stimulating and highly invigorating to the entire system, nerves or muscles, cannot record the presence of their great power.

 
What Violet Rays Do

    Violet Rays or High Frequency Currents benefit all living matter. Through the glass vacuum applicator light, heat, electric energy and ozone are created. These forces are uniformly potent in relieving and eliminating human ailments. Violet rays present a remedy upon which we can rely. They are positive and certain in action. They will reach where medicine does not, and often cannot – yet they cause no pain, no disagreeable sensation or discomfort. They furnish a soothing relief. They destroy germs and have a strong power over infection.
    A Violet Ray treatment is the surest method of relieving pain. Applied to that part of the body where the pain is severest, the rays and High Frequency electrical discharge penetrate every cell, tissue and organ and tranquilize and soothe. They build up the forces of nutrition and general health. Violet Rays will stimulate and strengthen the vital organs, develop the body and steady the nerves, spraying thousands of volts of High Frequency electricity into any weak, sluggish or painful organ or muscle, purifying and causing the flood of warm, rich blood to surge through the treated part, at the same time being painless and pleasant. Violet Rays have only to be tried to be appreciated.

 
Violet Rays for Well People, Too

    Even if you are at present strong and well in every respect, the use of Violet Rays will be of immense benefit to you. They provide a stimulation to which a healthy body immediately responds. They safeguard you against the coming illness and reduction of vitality.

 
Why You Should Use Violet Rays

    Violet Rays should be used by everyone experiencing sickness or ailments of any kind.
    The healing properties of Violet Rays are manifold, and they accomplish what drugs and medicines never can. The regular introduction of a vitalizing shower of diffused electricity into your system is exactly what is needed to make it function properly and efficiently.
    No matter how well you may be feeling today, tomorrow may bring sickness. But if you have been taking regular treatments with Violet Ravs the chances that you will succumb to illness are very slight. Violet Ray treatments keep your constitution at " par."
    The healthiest people in the world are those who are always striving to better their physical conditions. And there is nothing like a Violet Ray treatment to infuse vitality and energy into your body.
    To be healthy, use Violet Rays. To keep healthy, use Violet Rays.

 
 
KIDNEY TROUBLES
 
     The kidneys perform a very important task in our body. They are the organs of excretion. If their function is somehow impaired by inflammation due to heavy cold or due to congestion or other causes, grave con-sequences are resultant. 
     Violet Rays exert a powerful influence. The very fact that albumen in the urine quickly disappears after a few applications alone proves sufficiently their importance in fighting this class of sickness. Nobody who suffers from kidney disorders can really afford to be without a Violet Ray. It helps when other means, especially drugs, have long been given up as useless.
 
To Relieve Pains Use the Following Technique
 
    Always apply as much of a current strength as can be tolerated. If a person is very sensitive, keep the electrode in close contact with the painful spot and move it slowly about. If the sufferer from pain does not object to it, treat through clothing or a towel and cause a counter irritation by sparks. It depends largely on the part or area you treat what method should be employed. It is therefore necessary to adapt yourself to circumstances.
    Many people, after stopping their treatments for many weeks, and even months, report continual increase in health and strength. As a matter of fact, the greatest benefit comes after the course of treatment is over. This answers the question often asked as to whether the treatment does not have to be kept up indefinitely.
 
Orificial Treatments

    All orificial electrodes must be lubricated before insertion. They should be properly sterilized. It is wrong to believe that orificial treatments are painful. There is, in fact, no other sensation than that of a beneficial warmth during the application. Orificial treatments do not last over 5 minutes. It is also advisable to move the electrode during the treatment just slightly so as to avoid its sticking to the mucous membrane. Orificial treatments require, for safety's sake and for better results, always two people, patient and operator. Always turn the current on after insertion of the applicator and turn the current off before removing the same.

 
Preparation for Treatment

    Surface treatments can be given in direct contact with the skin, and also through the clothing. As any clothing represents an interposed dry resistance, a treatment through the same would cause small sparks. It depends entirely on the desired effect, which way to treat, and the instructions given in our booklet refer to the proper technique. If no sparks are desired any clothing covering the part to be treated must be removed.
    Metallic objects as hairpins, corset steels, chains, should be taken off if they cannot be avoided in the treatment.

 
 
GOITRE
 
     By using the No. 5 Electrode, throat and neck may be treated with admirable results. Many physicians recommend this treatment for Goitre. 
     Many cases yield to treatment using Electrode No. 5 with the strongest current that can be tolerated. Treatments should be of not longer than four minutes' duration and not more than once a day. Results are not usually apparent until a dozen or more treatments have been taken. 
     For sore throats, also for improvement of the voice, the surface applicator can be used. Singers, actors and speakers have reported wonderful improvement and benefits.
 
 
For Mild Treatments

    Keep the applicator in close contact with the body at any part which requires a mild treatment.
    Start with the weakest current possible. Avoid the initial little discharge which occurs when you bring the applicator close to the body in making the contact. Make contact quickly and the initial discharge will not be annoying. Do the same when the treatment is finished. Remove the electrode quickly. This will save you the little sparks you may otherwise feel. By no means does this little spark, when making contact with the applicator and when removing it, hurt. If you think it does, it is imaginary. Just use common sense and a little judgment and you will find that even one-half inch of High Frequency discharge does not cause any pain.

 
 
BACKACHE
 
     Backache, except in cases of strain or internal injury, is a symptom of some internal disorder such as lumbago and rheumatism or weak sexual organs, bladder or kidneys. Local applications will relieve immediate pain but the cause should be located and treatment applied. Relief from the above ailments is usually obtained most quickly by local application on the affected area, using the Surface Electrode with fairly strong current. 
     For tired, wornout, rundown feeling, often accompanied by headache, nothing is more appropriate and relieving than Violet Ray treatments. They re-vitalize the system and reestablisb the correct vital functions of the body.
 
 
Ozone Generator

    This instrument when attached to our Generator produces enormous quantities of Ozone which is purified by passing through the inhalant mixture provided with this attachment. A few drops of the inhalant are poured on the cotton, and when the rubber bulb is agitated, the Ozone is forced through this mixture and inhaled in the form of a vapor.
    When using the Ozone Generator, support the instrument on a table so that it will not roll and insert the Ozone Generator the same as any other electrode. One hand must be in contact with the glass stem of the Ozone Generator as in the illustration.
    The Ozone permeates every cell in the lungs, destroying any germ life and soothing the inflamed tissues. For Anemia, Hay Fever, Coughs, Catarrh, Asthma, Bronchitis, Insomnia, Nervous Debility and Tuberculosis of the Lungs, there is no better treatment.
    The treatments are exceedingly agreeable and remind one of a trip to the pine woods.
    No. 28 Ozone Generator. Price, complete with all the attachments and 1-ounce bottle of inhalant. $10.00

 
 
OZONE GENERATOR
 
     This style Ozone electrode can be attached to all Halliwell-Shelton Violet Ray Outfits excepting Nos. 205 and 206, which contain built-in attachments. 
     Treatment not over 5 to 10 inhala-tions at one time. Use twice a day.
 
 
What the Ozone Treatment Will Do For You

    If you lack physical exercise a good number of so-called functional troubles (of men and women of the sedentary class) will gradually make their appearance. These are clearly due to under-oxygenation, which means that an insufficient quantity of oxygen is absorbed by our system.
    Muscular exercise, deep breathing, will increase oxygenation and do wonders to us, – as is well known – but how often can the person' needy of plenty of exercise, have same, especially when professional occupation and duties offer little chance for it? There are also a good many who may be invalid and should not exert themselves by physical strain. For all of these the Ozone Treatments will do wonders.
    The Ozone Generator converts the oxygen of the air into ozone. Ozone, therefore, is a modification of oxygen; in fact, it is concentrated oxygen. It has a strong chemical action. It is a colorless gas which has a peculiar, not unpleasant, odor.
    Ozone exists in larger quantities on mountain tops, at the Sea Shore and in the Country. In cities, and especially in crowded places, it is hardly recognizable. Oxygen is – as we all know – most vital to our welfare; in fact, without it we could not exist. When life is at its lowest ebb in grave cases of sickness the physicians resort to the oxygen tank to keep us breathing and alive. It is therefore not difficult to realize of what great importance ozone, which is concentrated oxygen, can be to us.
 

Indirect Massage

    High Frequency current produces a cellular massage, the contractile effect being expended upon the individual cells composing the tissue rather than on the individual muscles. This form of massage is very effective, penetrating as it does every part of the body, and can be drawn to any desired part by the application of another person's fingers to the part of the body to which treatment is particularly desired, the patient first grasping the electrode as shown in above illustration.
    No. 6 Electrode is especially designed for this treatment.
    You can, however, use No. 1 with very good results; current not so strong, however. Where a very powerful treatment is wanted the metal Electrode No. 6 is used, but to avoid the sting turn the current on and off while the person treated has hand on the metal Electrode as illustrated.
 
Effects Desired Easily Obtained

    Careful study of different ways of administration should be made before using Violet Ray so as to secure best results.
    For sedative or quieting results, your entire body can be thoroughly charged with Violet Ray High Frequency current. You can completely electrify yourself. Painful sensations by sedative treatments can be calmed, as sedative action is strongly constitutional in its effects. Nervous ailments are greatly benefited by sedative treatments. They tranquilize your nerves. By keeping the electrode in close contact with part to be treated sedation can be produced locally. Sedative current creates quick and beneficial results in all nervous conditions. The entire nervous System is refreshed with a general electrification treatment.
    Violet Ray can be stimulative. When an electrode is somewhat lifted during the application or used through clothing or cloth, a general stimulation is produced. This stimulation is caused by the many small sparks generally called High Frequency Spray. They cause a pleasant and tingling sensation and bombard thoroughly the area which they cover, causing a very beneficial heating effect at the same time. They also generate ozone which is directly driven into the tissue, causing the ozonization of the blood. These sparks are also germ-killing and overcome infection.

Follow Instructions Carefully

    It is necessary to give strict attention to the following instructions to receive benefits – if same are followed, excellent results will positively be obtained.

ABSCESSES – Keep electrode No. 1 in close contact with the skin. Use enough current to get the full effect of the heat generated. Treatment of 3 to 5 minutes' duration and repeat daily or twice a day, if necessary. If applied to a developing abscess, its growth can be arrested.

ACNE (PIMPLES, BLACKHEADS) – A common and very distressing condition in young people, one in which quick and permanent relief may be obtained by the use of a short spark. Treat the entire surface for about six minutes, using electrode No. 1. Use electrode No. 46, creating a mild fulguration spark where blackheads are deeply imbedded in the tissues, thus softening and permitting their easy removal. Steaming the face before treatment will be found beneficial. During period of treatments diet should be carefully regulated, avoid rich and greasy foods, and keep bowels in a healthy condition.

ALOPECIA (LOSS OF HAIR) – Commence treatment with weak current and increase to medium strength later, by using electrode No. 3. Pass comb electrode back and forth over scalp for about four minutes every day. Use same treatment for baldness due to sickness and for gray hair in order to restore it to natural condition. Electrodes No. 1 or No. 5 can be used if more convenient.

ALCOHOLISM AND DRUG ADDICTIONS – Use surface electrode No. 1 in alcohol, morphine or opium habits, apply a strong current over liver, solar plexus and spine, for six to eight minutes daily. In cocaine habits use a mild current to the soles of the feet, arms and legs until reddening results. These applications should be made through interposed towel or clothing. Short sparks are best for these treatments. Never apply current through shoes.

ANEMIA AND CHLOROSIS – Use electrode No. 1 for eight to ten minutes three to six times per week, treating thoroughly the entire chest, abdomen, back and spine, thus increasing the oxygenation of the blood, which is as effective as iron tonics to the system. Ozone inhalations are helpful and of utmost value in these cases. Use Ozone Generator No. 28.

 
 
ANEMIA
 
     Surface Electrode should he applied to the naked body over the chest, abdomen, back, and particularly up and down the entire spine. This will have a general stimulating effect through the increase of the oxygenation of the blood. In this way the oxygen-carrying powers of the red blood corpuscles are increased.
 
 
ARTERIOSCLEROSIS AND HIGH BLOOD PRESSURE – Daily treatments of about 8 minutes' duration will lower blood pressure. As the blood approaches normal, reduce treatments to three a week, then to twice a week. A treatment every week or two should be maintained for some time to be sure of the permanency of results. Apply electrode No. 1 or No. 2, using a medium current strength over the body generally.
 
ASTHMA – In asthmatic conditions, the best results may be obtained through the use of the Ozone Generator, electrode No. 28. Choking and coughing fits will be promptly alleviated. A local auxiliary treatment may also be used for a sedative effect by a gentle massage over the area with the surface electrode No. 1 and mild current. Also apply electrode No. 5 to throat glands for about 6 minutes.

ATAXIA – Use a sharp spark along the spine, over buttocks, abdomen and to the back of the legs. Apply electrode No. 1 or No. 4. Daily treatments lasting about 10 minutes are necessary at first. They can be gradually decreased to about two a week with the progressing improvements.

BACKACHE – To relieve pain treat sore muscles with electrode No. 1. As backache may be due to weakness of the bladder or sexual organs, lumbago, rheumatism, kidney disease, it is important to treat the cause as well.

BARBER'S ITCH (CYCOSIS) – Cleanse the infected area with warm water and castile soap, and a mild antiseptic wash. Then treat with mild current from the surface electrode No. 1 in close contact, followed by a short spark till counter-irritation is produced. The condition is usually stubborn and may require extended treatment.

BLADDER DISEASE (CYSTITIS) – The result of vacuum tube treatment through the rectum or urethral is remarkable in inflammation of the bladder. Treatment lasting 7 minutes given daily at first and then every other day, will clear up urine very fast in nearly all of these cases. Use electrodes No. 1 or No. 2.

BRONCHITIS – Short sparks applied with electrode No. 1 or No. 2 over the chest and back, until well reddened, will give relief. This treatment may be repeated every hour until a sufficient moderation of congestion is obtained. More important than the high frequency application is to ozonize the air by means of electrode No. 28.

 
 
FOR THE COMPLEXION
 
     There is no more delightful or effective method of removing blemishes or wrinkles and other complexion disorders than by Violet Ray treatment. The blood is brought to the surface and the bloom of youth and health is restored to the cheeks. Skin-troubles, Acne, Pimples and Eczema respond quickly to Violet Rays. No beauty specialist is nowadays without a Violet Ray outfit.
 
 
BRAIN FAG – Use electrode No. 1 over the forehead and eyes and to the back of the head and neck with spark just strong enough to have good tonic effect. In all cases, 2 or 3 minutes' inhalation of ozone (electrode No. 28) is desirable.

BREAST DEVELOPMENT – Treat the entire area to be developed. Use electrode No. 1 for about 5 to 8 minutes daily. Move it lightly over each side, from the neck downward and also from arm pit to arm pit, under each breast, pressing lightly upward.

BRIGHT'S DISEASE – Apply strong current with electrode No. 1 over the region of the kidneys for at least 10 minutes every day.
 
BRUISES – Treat injured area with electrode No. 1. First with close contact and later with gradually increasing spark. Use lubricant.

BUNIONS – Electrode No. 18 or No. 51, using a fairly strong current, should be applied directly over the inflamed area followed by a gentle spark.

CALLOUSES – On calloused areas of foot a mild fulguration spark obtained from electrode No. 20 will soften the hardened tissues so they can be readily removed. If soreness follows, treatment over the area with the surface electrode No. 1 in direct contact with the skin will afford relief.

CANCER – Mild forms of cancer are treated with a strong spark. Use electrode No. 20. Consult authority, as surgery is usually required in conjunction.

CANKER – A medium current for 1 or 2 minutes should be applied with electrode No. 10 or No. 58, or any suitable dental electrode.

CARBUNCLES – Use electrode No. 1 in loose contact with the inflamed area and pass it back and forth over it for 5 to 10 minute. This will relieve pain and promote an early ripening of the carbuncle. Electrode No. 18 is also very convenient.

CATARRHAL CONDITIONS – In catarrh of the nose and throat the ozone generator No. 28 is of great value and should be used two or three times daily for about 5 minutes at a time, followed by treatment in the nostrils with the nasal electrode No. 16 or 52 with mild current for about 3 minutes. Care should be used that the current is not turned on until after insertion of the electrode.

CATARACT – Five minutes daily treatments with electrode No. 18 in contact with closed eyelids, with not too great an intensity of current.

CHAFE – Use vaseline, followed by a medium current with electrode No. 1 for 5 to 6 minutes in close contact with skin.

CHAPPED HANDS OR FACE – Apply vaseline first. Then use a weak current with No. 1 electrode for 2 minutes in contact with skin.

CHILBLAINS – Use electrode No. 1 for 6 to 8 minutes in contact with the skin. It may he held steadily over the chilblain or moved slowly about as desired. Repeat daily or every other day until cured.

COLD HANDS OR FEET – Improper circulation in the extremities may be relieved by a gentle spark over their surface, gradually increasing until a sense of warmth prevails. Use electrode No. 2. Repeat often; if necessary, three times a day.

COLDS – Cold in the head will be benefited by inhalation from ozone generator (electrode No. 28), followed by mild current through nasal electrode No. 52. The surface electrode No. 1 may also be used over the antrum, mastoid region, and back of neck.

COLD IN LUNGS – Treat the chest and back. Follow instructions given under Asthma. Take ozone inhalations repeatedly for several minutes. Electrode No. 28.

CONSTIPATION – Relief will be obtained by a thorough downward massage over the abdominal region with surface electrode No. 1 applied first directly to the skin and followed by short spark over the same area. Ten minutes daily is advised first, later dropping to two or three times a week. If the constipation is particularly stubborn, peristaltic action will be stimulated by means of the insertion of an insulated rectal electrode (Nos. 14, 34, 36 or 63), properly lubricated, for a period of 4 to 6 minutes. Apply current after insertion.

CORNS – Hard corns may be entirely removed by the application of the fulguration electrodes Nos. 18 or 51, care being used to apply the spark particularly upon the hard tissue and not on the surrounding area.

DANDRUFF – Shampoo the scalp before treatment, dry it thoroughly and apply a medium current, with applicator No. 3, using it in the same manner as an ordinary comb for 3 to 5 minutes. Repeat this treatment at intervals of 2 to 3 days. Do not use any hair tonic.

DEAFNESS – Unless the drum of the ear is ruptured, chronic deafness may generally be relieved and in many cases entirely cured by high frequency treatment. Ear electrode No. 10 should be used for about 4 minutes. The gentle stimulation thus afforded the delicate aural nerves and the mild massage of the drum will often result in an immediate improvement in hearing. As a further treatment the surface electrode may be applied over the mastoid region for 2 or 3 minutes with a gentle, mild current.

DIABETES – Apply, electrodes Nos. 1 and 2 over the abdomen, and if proper diet is observed, results will be quickly obtained. Apply a strong current for about 8 minutes through a thin towel twice a day.

DIPHTHERIA – Apply electrodes Nos. 10 and 58 to inside and outside of throat respectively. Ozone inhalations have proven most beneficial (Ozone Generator No. 28).

DYSPEPSIA – Apply surface electrode No. 1 over stomach and solar plexus. The great tonic effect of ozone inhalations makes it a useful adjunct.

 
 
FOR THE EAR
 
     Is an inflamed condition of the nerves. Any nerve can be affected. Pain and Earache, deafness and other disorders of the auditory organs yield readily to the Violet Ray. In some cases, hearing has been restored completely. 
     Use Electrode No. 10, inserting it into the ear, using a mild current for a short length of time. Where the pain is acute it is sometimes necessary to take hourly applications. If heating effect is too marked during treatment interrupt the application and repeat later. 
     When inflammation exists treat about the ear with No. 1 Electrode from 5 to 6 minutes with mild current. 
 
 
EARACHE – Relief obtained by application of ear electrode No. 10, using a mild current for 3 to 5 minutes. Applications to the back of the ear and over the side of the face covering facial nerve with electrode No. 1 assist treatment greatly.

ECZEMA – A handkerchief laid over the surface will cause a slight spark and is preferable. If the skin itches hold the electrode slightly away from the surface. This will relieve and gratify. Use electrode No. 1 or No. 18.

EYE DISEASES – Iritis, retinitis, atrophy of optic nerve, conjunctivitis, trachoma, glaucoma, incipient cataract, paralysis of ocular muscles, intro-ocular hemorrhage have all been treated by high frequency currents. Close eyelids and apply a mild current with electrode No. 18 or No. 39 for short periods, not exceeding 3 minutes at one time.

FELONS – Treat with No. 1 electrode and a mild current in close contact daily from 4 to 6 minutes.

FEMALE TROUBLES – Use electrodes Nos. 13, 30 or 31. They should be lubricated before insertion. Turn the current on after insertion of electrode and turn the current off before removing to avoid unnecessary sparking. A medium current for 5 minutes is applied. Repeat treatment as circumstances require. During menstruation an excessive flow of blood may result, as high frequency currents draw the blood.

FISTULAS – Use electrode Nos. 14, 36 or 63, as indicated. Lubricate electrode before insertion into rectum. Use a medium current for about 5 minutes daily.

FLABBY BREAST – A stimulating application with the surface electrode to the relaxed nipple of the flabby breast will immediately Show its beneficial effect.

FRECKLES – Several weeks' treatment will be required. Use electrode No. 1 with a medium current daily from 4 to 6 minutes.

FROST BITES – Treat affected part with No. 1 electrode, using a mild current for from 5 to 7 minutes.

FURUNCULOSIS – Treat with No. 1 electrode with mild or medium current. Inflammation will cease quickly.

GOITRE – The absorption of tissue being necessary, treat with external throat electrode No. 5 in close contact with the skin and follow with moderately sharp spark over the surface and sides of the protuberance. Persistence in this treatment is necessary.

GOUT – This condition may be helped by a continued massage over the area with a surface electrode and a mild current. If pain is felt at first begin with short treatment and increase. Do not treat during acute attack.

GRAY HAIR – The natural color of hair can often be restored by patient treatments with electrode No. 3. See under Alopecia. Sometimes several months are required for results. Keep the scalp clean. Use a current of sufficient strength for good stimulation once or twice every day.

 
SCALP TREATMENT
 
     Nothing is more beneficial to the scalp than the application of the Violet Ray. It revitalizes impoverished hair, restores its natural lustre. In order to obtain results it is necessary to be both persistent and consistent in the use of Violet Ray, as treatments must sometimes continue over a long period of time in obstinate cases. Treatments should be from 3 to 5 minutes a day using the comb Electrode. Do not use hair tonic that contains alcohol, as this is inflammable. Falling hair can be stopped in time by Violet Ray scalp applications. Prematurely gray hair can be restored to its natural color by persistent applications. Dandruff and other scalp troubles are usually quickly relieved. 
 

GRIPPE (INFLUENZA) – Treat spine, solar plexus, over eyes and sides of nose. Inhalations from Ozone Generator (No. 28) will greatly aid. Intra-nasal applications by electrode No. 52 are also beneficial.

HAY FEVER – Apply electrode No. 1 over the nose and the spine and No. 28 in nostrils. Anticipate the trouble and begin before discomfort is felt.

HEADACHES – Headaches are from varying causes. If relief is not had from applying to the seat of pain, cover the spine and stomach. Apply No. 1 electrode.

HIVES AND RASH – Use electrode No. 1 with medium current strength to affected area. Use vaseline before applying the electrode; 3 to 5 minutes should be sufficient. Repeat daily.

HEMORRHOIDS (PILES) – Use hemorrhoidal electrode No. 63 with mild current for about 4 to 6 minutes, care being observed that the electrode is properly lubricated and that current is not turned on until after insertion.

INSOMNIA – Cover back of head, neck and eyebrows in order mentioned. Use electrode No. 1; a strong current is essential in treating this ailment.

LEUCORRHEA – Follow the directions given under female troubles. Also use electrode No. 4, moving it up and down the spine slowly. A strong current must be used for about 5 to 6 minutes daily.

LUMBAGO – Treat over painful area until all pain is dispelled. Use electrode No. 1 and as strong a current as can be tolerated. Repeat treatment whenever pain reappears until cured.

MASSAGE – Metal electrode No. 6 to be held by patient in one hand, turning on current after it has been grasped. Masseur's fingers will draw sparks to point massaged. Use lubricant while massaging.

MUMPS – Treat the swollen parts with a medium current, using electrode No. 1, keeping it in contact for about 5 to 8 minutes. Repeat as necessary, at least once a day,

NERVOUSNESS – Treat the spine, back of head and neck with a mild current, using electrodes Nos. 1 and 4. Immediate results are felt in all cases. Use a weak current at first and increase the strength gradually; 5 to 8 minutes is the average duration of treatment.

NEURALGIA – Apply to seat of pain, after applying lubricant, raising electrode occasionally to produce spark. Treat with No. 1 electrode; time of treatment 5 to 10 minutes.

NEURITIS – The first few treatments usually increase the pain, after which relief is felt, and the current may be increased and a short spark given. Apply at the seat of pain with surface electrode No. 1.

 
 
RHEUMATISM
 
     There is no surer antidote on earth for rheumatism than Violet Ray treatment. In some cases rheumatism disappears almost completely after a few treatments. 
 
 
OBESITY – Use electrode No. 1 and apply to affected parts consistently. Begin with a medium current and increase to full power. Rigorous diet, exercise and personal hygiene must, of course, be observed.

PAINS – Apply at seat of pain until relieved with current and method to give best results. Use electrode No. 1.

PARALYSIS – With electrodes No. 1 or No. 2 treat paralyzed muscles, employing a current strong enough to produce a half or three-quarter inch spark. Part of the time keep the applicator in contact with the skin and part of the time raise it above the surface to get effective spark.

POISON IVY – Apply lubricant first. Use No. 1 electrode or No. 2 edgewise so as to cause plenty of sparking over the whole affected area. Lift the applicator here and there and treat with a strong current for from 3 to 5 minutes.

PROSTATIC DISEASES – This most distressing ailment, common to so many men of middle age, is one in which the high frequency current is almost a specific. The treatment indicated is with the prostatic electrode No. 9. See Pages 14 and 15.

PYORRHEA – Treatments with suitable dental electrode with a weak or medium current will help to re-establish a healthy condition of the gums. High frequency treatments promote proper nutritional improvements and in addition to this have antiseptic and antitoxic properties. A dentist should always be consulted.

RED NOSE – Use electrode No. 1 and apply for short periods, say about 2 minutes, small sparks by holding the electrode edgeways or lifting it about one-eighth of an inch. The object is to destroy the enlarged veins and treatment must not be carried too far at one time. It should be repeated as condition permits. Several days between treatments may sometimes be advisable.

RHEUMATISM – High frequency currents are of exceptional value in muscular and in chronic articular rheumatism. The pain will be relieved by application of surface electrode No. 1 with massage, using lubricant, if necessary. Follow with fairly strong spark until pronounced redness is produced. This treatment persistently followed has in many cases resulted in a permanent cure. While relief may be obtained in one treatment, a permanent cure may require much time and patience.

RINGWORM – Use electrode No. 1 and apply short sparks for several minutes two or three times every other day. A medium current is sufficient. Move the electrode so as to cover the entire affected area.

SCARS – If the tissue is hardened or callous its removal may be facilitated by the application of a mild spark through electrode No. 20.

SCIATICA – Treat with a sharp spark along the course of the sciatic nerve until a redness is produced. Use electrode No. 1 or No. 2.

SKIN DISEASES – Treat over the affected tissues with surface electrode No. 1 held in close contact for from 5 to 15 minutes. Follow by moderate spark 3 to 5 minutes. Treat once daily. If the skin is moist, talcum powder should be used so that electrode will not stick. See also Acne and Eczema.

SORE FEET AND STONE BRUISES – Applications with any suitable applicator in close contact with the skin bring quick relief. Use lubricant and treat for several minutes.

SORE THROAT (TONSILITIS) – Electrode No. 5 is best suited for external throat applications. Hold directly against the skin with fairly strong current. The use of the Ozone Generator No. 28 for several minutes following will also be beneficial.

SPRAINS – The pain and soreness following a sprain may be alleviated by treatment, first with the surface electrode in contact with the skin and later by a mild spark, gradually increasing in strength until a hyperemia is produced.

STIFFNESS OF JOINTS AND MUSCLES – This condition is generally due to the over-employment of certain muscles. The resulting stiffness and soreness may be relieved by the use of surface electrode No. 1.

ULCERS – Apply a strong current with No. 2 electrode for 5 minutes in contact, lifting applicator once in a while to produce sparks of at least one-quarter inch. Repeat daily.

WARTS AND MOLES – These disfigurements, no matter of how long standing, may be most successfully treated by the application of a spark through the fulguration electrode No. 20. The greatest care must be exercised that these sparks do not come in contact with the surrounding tissues. Permanent results may be expected, and the most disfiguring warts or moles removed without leaving a trace by these means.

WHOOPING COUGH – Apply No. 1 electrode in the same manner as explained under Asthma and use also Ozone Inhalations with the Ozone Generator No. 28.

WRITER'S CRAMP – Treat with gentle spark over the affected fingers and thumb, also massage with surface electrode over palm of the hand.

WRINKLES – Are commonly caused by using a given set of facial muscles more than normally. They can be removed by applying electrode No. 1 or No. 18 with a rotary, massaging movement. With frequency current revitalizes tired muscles and arrests the blighting marks of time.

    Medical authorities agree that 65% of all men past middle age (many much younger) are afflicted with a disorder of the prostate gland. Aches in feet, legs and back, sciatic pains, are some of the signs. No longer should a man approaching or past the prime of life be content to regard these pains and conditions as inevitable signs of approaching age. The Halliwell-Shelton Violet Ray is used to restore youthful health and vigor and to restore the prostate gland to its proper functioning.
    In treating the Prostate through the rectum the technique consists in placing the patient on one side in the Sims' position with the knees well drawn up. The No. 9 Electrode is lubricated, inserted in handle and then inserted into the rectum about six inches with the depression in the tube turned toward the front or anterior wall of the rectum so the gland rests into depression for best results. In Prostatic diseases of all kinds the High Frequency current has proven most efficacious. If, however, you are fortunate to have a Low frequency circuit in your machine, that is preferable in this treatment. For home use a two-piece machine is more desirable on account of the convenience of turning the current on and off. The duration of each treatment is 3 to 5 minutes. Results found in all forms of Prostate diseases are extraordinary. Enlarged Prostate should show improvement from the very first-about two to three treatments a week.
    Same treatment used with remarkable results in Senile hypertrophy. Two or three treatments a week then skip a month.
 
Directions for Operation
 
1 – Insert the Glass Applicator into the handle of machine.

2 – Attach the plug to the lamp socket.

3 – Turn the current on: first, electric light switch; second, knob switch on machine.

4 – Turn the adjusting knob switch to the right or left also to increase or to diminish the Violet Rav discharge.  Also give extra turn when finished to insure electric current is broken.

5 – In the indirect treatment, the party to be treated should hold the instrument, with the metal Electrode No. 6 attached in hand. The current should then be turned on and some second party, with either hand, fingertips or another applicator, draw the current to the desired spot of the patient's body. This method can be used for body Massage, facial massage and scalp treatment. No. 1 Applicator may be used in place of No. 6, although it is not so strong and desired results not so easily obtained.

6 – Do not attempt to repair instrument, if the necessity arises, but write to the factory, advising of your difficulties and we will inform you what to do.

7 – Do not use our instrument in connection with any tonic containing alcohol on the hair.

8 – Any treatment should be started with a mild current and gradually increased to the required strength.

9 – When a treatment is completed, do not forget to turn off the current at the switch, or to be on the safe side, remove plug from the electric light socket. Damage arising from carelessness is not covered in our guarantee.

10 – The standard winding for this instrument is 110 Volts. If voltage is higher or lower than 15 per cent, special windings or series resistances must be used to obtain the best results. We will supply all necessary information upon request.

11 – Take care of the connecting cords. They should be kept dry and free from knots and twists and must be repaired when signs of wear are apparent.

12 – Should you break the glass Electrode off in the machine accidentally, simply take a pair of long-nose plyers and pull out the broken part.
