Research has shown that we are more than our physical bodies, we are also bioenergetic beings. Complementary and alternative healthcare has championed this fact for decades, and conventional medicine is slowly catching up. To be healthy, we have to attend to both aspects of our being—the physical and the energetic (in the form of a biofield, or field of energy that surrounds and interpenetrates our physical body). Integrative Life Solutions is here to partner with you to do just that. You can choose from among the energetic therapies explained in the Energy Therapies section of this website and see related technology-based energy therapies in the Bioenergetic Therapies section.
Light and Color Therapy
Theragem™ brings the power of light, color and gemstones together for revitalizing well-being.
Many scientists would say that there is no light more healing than sunlight. Yet, modern science is showing that all kinds of light frequencies, strengths and colors have healing properties. In fact, a new therapeutic discipline of light therapy is emerging from all of this research. There are now various kinds of targeted light therapies to stimulate physical, mental and emotional well-being.
Some of the health conditions currently treated with light include:
• Pain and inflammation
• Jaundice in newborn babies
• Sleep disorders
• Behavioral disorders in elderly people with dementia and Alzheimer’s
• Acne, psoriasis and other skin disorders
• Seasonal affective disorder (SAD)—also known as the winter blues or
• Generalized depression, bipolar depression and mood disorders
• Certain physiological effects of a weightlessness environment in astronauts
Gemstones and Light Therapy
Gemstones have been used for centuries in many cultures as healing agents, especially in Far Eastern countries and in healing systems such as Ayurveda. They come in a rainbow of colors, and each type vibrates at a specific frequency that is thought to be beneficial to the body and mind. By reflecting light through a slice of gemstone, the body receives the therapeutic properties of both the light and the frequency/vibration of the gemstone.
The Theragem™ represents the marriage of the ancient knowledge of the healthful effects of gemstones and light with twenty-first century LED technology. Gemstone light therapy is also known as dielectric resonance, as it uses a blend of wave frequency, color, light, and gemstone energy to rebalance the body on a physical, mental, emotional and energetic level. The Theragem works within the 480- to 780-nanometer (nm) LED light range. The 660- to 670-nm level is known as the “wellness zone” because of the way it harmonizes with the body’s natural frequencies. It is believed that stimulating this particular resonance zone in the body helps revitalize and restore health at a cellular and sub-cellular level.
When using the Theragem, light is reflected through various interchangeable gemstone “cups” that are selected to address your particular issue. The light is directed at specific areas of the body, including the temples and the spleen, and any area for which healing is needed. This form of colored light therapy encourages the body overall to release vital hormones and endorphins, and this physiological response then helps to relieve pain, boost localized healing, and shift troublesome moods. Specifically, the Theragem may promote wellness not only through the relaxation and stress-reduction effect, but also by helping to:
• Improve micro-circulation
• Promote proper cellular function
• Stimulate positive immune responses
These photos show a baby with severe weeping eczema before and after a Theragem therapy session. Within five days of that single session, the eczema lesions have stopped weeping and are healing.
The photo at the far left above shows a Theragem therapist whose lower leg was burned by an outdoor fire. Doctors advised she might need skin grafts. She immediately started Theragem therapy and experienced rapid pain relief. She continued therapy for two months, and as the next two photos show, her calf healed so well that there was virtually no scarring. (Photos courtesy of Medica Health International.)
A Theragem session is non-invasive and there are no known contraindications. If you are interested in gemstone light therapy, the Theragem is the perfect choice.

Theragem Gemstone Cups
The following is an alphabetical list of the gemstone cups available for Theragem sessions at Integrative Life Solutions.
There are a variety of Theragem cups that focus on enhancing beauty, and Integrative Life Solutions uses the cup called Age-Defying II. It contains more than 30 carats of gemstones, each included for a specific anti-aging skincare purpose:
• Peach and White Pearl for improving complexion and plumping collagen
• Selenite for reducing free-radical skin damage and restoring the skin’s radiance
• Sapphire for strengthening veins, improving elasticity, and boosting skin radiance
• Rhodocrisite for gently dilating blood vessels and improving skin tone
• Amethyst for cleansing and rebalancing
• Diamond to amplify the properties of all the gemstones in this cup
Amethyst is recognized in ancient traditions as a master healing gemstone. It is renowned for its transformational nature and for bestowing meditative and calming energies. It is thought to stimulate the opening of the mind and the releasing of “negative” emotions, especially fear. It also helps ease deep-seated pain at both the physical and psychological level. For these reasons and others, amethyst is said to enhance self-awareness and self-knowledge, and to increase a sense of personal responsibility. As such, it is thought to be especially useful for addressing illnesses that arise primarily from blocked emotions.
Carnelian and Diamond (Combination Cup)
Traditionally, carnelian has been used to heal open sores, rejuvenate tissues and cells, alleviate the symptoms of rheumatism, and treat kidney problems, gall stones, colds, pollen allergies, and neuralgia.
According to various ancient belief systems, carnelian is associated with creativity, individuality and courage. Like all agates, it is thought to have protective energies, especially for protection from anger, jealousy, and fear. It is said to aid memory, including the recall of past lives, and is associated with attracting the most suitable mate. Generally, it is thought to bring good luck and to help manifest desires. It is also said to help ease or heal sorrows and to stabilize energies in the home. It is associated with the root and sacral chakras.
Diamond is known as the king of gemstones, and because of its clarity is thought to contain all the frequencies of light. When mixed with another gemstone, diamond is purported to increase the energy of that gemstone. Historically, crushed diamond was taken as a treatment for many ailments, although it is traditionally associated with restoring the body’s balance and enhancing metabolism. Its many therapeutic associations include clearing “mind fog,” counteracting the effects of poisons, strengthening relationship bonds, enhancing love, increasing longevity, restoring clarity, amplifying strengths and weaknesses, and promoting courage and hope.
Emerald emits healing frequencies that are thought to lower skin and body temperature and to be useful for treating conditions where too much heat is present, such as burns, fevers, arthritis, asthma, eczema, anorexia, irritable bowel syndrome, stomach ulcers, diarrhea, and cystitis. In ancient Vedic cultures, emeralds were associated with Mercury, the planet of nerves, intellect, memory, creative ability, and mind. Over the centuries, the healing properties of emeralds have been applied to all sorts of eye and ear conditions and to a diverse range of problems from forgetfulness and stammering to epilepsy and nervous disorders. Traditionally associated with the heart chakra, emerald is a stone of love and romance. It emits frequencies that are said to stimulate joy, communication, clairvoyance, truthfulness, memory, and faith.
Ruby is associated with raising the skin and body temperature, increasing the body's metabolic rate, and stimulating circulation. It is thought to be beneficial for people with large, heavy body types and a slow, cold energy level. Therapeutically, it is said to aid those with heart troubles, tuberculosis, indigestion, prolonged fevers, diabetes, ulcers, bone disorders, arthritis, blood diseases, anemia, and general weakness.
According to ancient traditions, ruby bestows the energy of integrity, devotion, and happiness. It enhances generosity, attracts prosperity, and increases romantic love. It is a stone that has been used for bringing protection to the home, worldly possessions, and children. It also is used for psychic protection. Ruby is associated with the root chakra.
Sapphire emits a cool, soothing, analgesic blue light energy that in modern medical trials has been used successfully in the treatment of pain, skin diseases, migraines, heartburn, rheumatism, lack of appetite, stomach bloating, insomnia, hearing problems, and more. In the Vedic tradition, blue sapphire is said to be sedative in nature, and so counteracts the fast beta brain waves associated with nervous disorders. Its light energy is also thought to help increases endorphin production.
In many ancient traditions, sapphire was believed to have miraculous and magical healing powers, especially for diseases of the brain and stomach. Its known uses include treating diarrhea, dysentery, gastric ulcers, nervous disorders, heart troubles, paralysis, Parkinson's disease, arthritis, and certain mental disorders. Sapphire also is thought to strengthen concentration, precision, and perfection in any activity. It is a gem associated with creative expression, intuition, and meditation. Correlated to the brow chakra, sapphire is said to be especially beneficial for mental clarity and to lift depression.
Sri Lankan Chrysoberyl Cat's Eye
This relatively rare and expensive gemstone is found in small quantities in Sri Lanka and Brazil. This gem cup combines Sri Lankan cat's eye with ruby, topaz and coral for a synergistic therapeutic effect. According to the Ayurvedic healing tradition, cat's eye is the "hottest" of all gemstones energetically, and so is often used in the most difficult or chronic cases. Traditionally and in folk medicine, it has been used for such challenging conditions as cancer and paralysis.
