Theragem: The Therapeutic Use of Light and Gemstones
The healing power of light has been recognized by conventional medicine, and a new discipline of Light Therapy has developed to harness the frequencies of various wavelengths and colors of light. The many kinds of light therapies to stimulate physical, mental and emotional well-being include ultraviolet light therapy, colored light therapy, photodynamic therapy, photo medicine and photo modulation.
In contemporary medicine, various colors of light are used therapeutically to treat many kinds of conditions, including:
• 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 mal-illumination
syndrome—generalized depression, bipolar depression and mood disorders
• Certain physiological effects of a weightlessness environment in astronauts
Color, of course, is light. And colored light in the form of gemstones has been used for centuries in many cultures as a healing agent, especially in Far Eastern countries and in healing systems such as Ayurveda.
While quartz crystals also are said to be healing—because of their highly ordered atomic state—they are usually clear or white in color. Gemstones, by contrast, come in all kinds of colors, and so vibrate at a range of frequencies, most of which are thought to be helpful for restoring order to the body or an organ when it has lost its own natural frequency and so is contributing to illness or “dis-ease.” By reflecting light through a slice of gemstone, the body receives the healing properties of both the light and the frequency/vibration of the colored gemstone. Some of the common correlations between the gemstones used by Integrative Life Solutions and health or well-being are listed below in the “Theragem Gemstone Cup Attributes” section.
The Science Behind Theragem
The TheragemTM, developed by Medica Health International, represents the marriage of the ancient knowledge of the healthful effects of gemstones and light with twenty-first century LED technology. Theragem 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.
Theragem features the highest-quality LEDs and digital technology to ensure a consistently accurate signal output. Specifically, Theragem utilizes:
• Incoherent polychromatic light technology (480–780 nm)
• Electromagnetic field technology (alpha, delta, beta, theta)
• Multi-frequency generator technology (0.1–20,000 Hz)
• Schumann resonance technology
• White noise technology
• Precious metals (gold and silver)
• Precious and semi-precious gemstones and crystals
When using the Theragem, light is reflected through various interchangeable gemstone “cups” that are selected to address the client’s specific issues. 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
For those who prefer a more technological explanation, Theragem combines low-powered non-coherent polychromatic light and pulsed electromagnetic fields. It beams them through precious or semi-precious gemstones and crystals. This process amplifies the colored light frequencies and delivers them to the part of the body at which the light is directed. By focusing these wavelengths, Theragem is able to produce a photo-stimulation response in the body whereby a chain of chemical reactions at the cellular level is triggered by the targeted exposure. As a result, a healing response is induced in the body.
The Proof Is in the Pictures
In the images at left, the first photo shows a baby suffering from extensive weeping ezcema. The second photo shows the same baby five days after a single Theragem therapy session. The lesions are drying up and healing.
This series of photos shows a Theragem therapist whose calf was burned in an outdoor fire. Doctors advised she might need skin grafts. She started immediate treatment using only aloe vera gel and Theragem. She continued treatment over two months.Notice that there is next to no scarring on her healed calf.
A Theragem session is non-invasive and there are no known contraindications. You can choose from among several models of the Theragem and from more than 40 gemstone cups, which are sold individually or in various pre-selected assortments.
The technology can be used hands-free in a custom-built cradle and stand, or it can be used hand-held for maximum flexibility of treatment. It runs off a standard electrical supply (110v – 220V) and has approximately one-hour of battery back-up. You can use the system while the battery is charging
Most models offers options that include hundreds (up to 700!) pre-programmed protocols based on the internationally recognized Consolidated Annotated Frequency List (CAFL), so you can make individualized therapeutic treatment choices for clients based on their particular needs and goals. There are also randomized protocols that can be used in a “sweep” and/or “hammer” approach in appropriate situations (as explained in the training).
Acupuncture: Needles of Light
Optional components include acupuncture wands, which are lightbeam condensers that fit over the gemstone cups, acting like needles of light for use at acupuncture points. These also are ideal for using on small joints, warts/moles, and areas of the body that need to be precisely targeted.
Encoding Liquids and Creams
There is also a gem essence encoding device that allow you to add the healing energy of any gemstone or crystal to water, oil, or cream carriers, offering an endless list of possibilities.
Work at Both the Physical and Bioenergetic Levels
Theragem also works at the level of the biofield. Much of the theory behind Theragem arose from ancient systems such as Ayurveda, traditional Chinese medicine, and shamanistic healing. Thus, you can work simultaneously at a physical and a bioenergetic level, for example by balancing your client’s “assemblage point,” a core regulating aspect of the human energy field that comes from shamanistic practices. This aspect of using Theragem is covered in training.
The new Theragem T1005 Clinique represents a leap forward in this technology, and it comes in three configurations. The basic Clinique "Active" configuration includes:
• A fully portable and detachable Theragem control unit (with LED light windows and full-color touchscreens)
• A stand with Clinique adaptor for fixed-place use
• A power adaptor/supply unit (Class 2A)
• 1 sapphire gemstone cup
• 1 emerald gemstone cup
• 1 diamond and carnelian gemstone cup
• An aluminum storage/flight case for up to seven gem cups
• A three-year international warranty
• Printed operator safety manual
• "Friends of Theragem Protocol" and Set-up Guide CD-ROM
If you are interested in gemstone light therapy, the Theragem is the perfect choice—combining hard science and technology with a more energetic understanding of the body, and integrating the healing power of colored light and gemstones.

The following gemstone cups represent a few of the dozens that are available. More than a dozen are designed to target the energetics correlated to specific health issues, such as diabetes, migraines, and depression. Still other gemstone cups are designed for more generalized goals, such as for anti-aging, beauty and “health spa” uses.
Carnelian and Diamond (Combination Cup)
Traditionally, carnelian has been used to heal open sores, rejuvenate tissues and cells, alleviate the symptoms of rheumatism, and to 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. In the Theragem protocol, this combined gemstone cup is used especially to influence the spleen and associated meridian.
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 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, reumatism, 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 beneficial for mental clarity and to lift depression.
