What the Violet Ray Is
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.
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.
Violet Rays for Well People, Too
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.
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.
To Relieve Pains Use the Following Technique
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.
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.
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
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
Metallic objects as hairpins, corset steels, chains,
should be taken off if they cannot be avoided in the treatment.
For Mild Treatments
By using the No. 5 Electrode, throat and neck
may be treated with admirable results. Many physicians recommend this treatment
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
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.
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
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.
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
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.
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
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
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
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.
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
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
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
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
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
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
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
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.
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.
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.
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
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
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
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.
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 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
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
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
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.
