Near Fine. 7" X 10" 230 Pages. Front cover showing very minor wear to edges and corners. Interior text and illustration pages are flawless. This book is a record of the numerous legal battles Dinsah Ghadiali fought from 1931 to 1957 defending the unique therapy he designed in 1920 called Spectro-Chrome. This volume recounts his unusual courtroom style which at times may not have been very lawyerly but at least it was effective. The Not Guilty verdict was attained by the powerful testimony of his Spectro-Chrome graduates some of whom were also practicing physicians. Few changes are made in this Second Edition compared to Dinshah's 1944 First Edition. Dinshah was born in 1873 and moved from India to the United States in 1911 and was naturalized in 1917. His medical degree was not recognized in the United States so he was alienated from medicine as it existed then. He was led to naturopathy, which developed from older natural schools of healing. In 1919 he became vice president of the National Association of Drugless Practitioners and actively participated in efforts to have the government recognize alternative medical practices. By 1920 Ghadiali had perfected the techniques of spectro-chrome therapy, a method of healing using attuned color waves. Color beams of light were projected upon the body of an ill person. In addition, Ghadiali received his medical degree in chiropractic, naturopathy, and several other healing practices, and moved to Malaga, New Jersey, and opened the Spectro-Chrome Institute. He finished the three volume Spectro-Chrome Encyclopedia in 1933. Meanwhile, Ghadiali faced a series of court actions as the government moved against his healing practices. He was arrested for fraud in 1931 but was acquitted. Ghadiali was able to train more than 100 students in the techniques of spectro-chrome therapy. In 1945 the government acted again. Charging that he made false claims about his spectro-chrome healing device. In 1947 he was convicted but not sent to prison on the condition that he cease practicing chromotherapy. His books and unsold devices were destroyed, and those that had been sold were confiscated from their owners. In the 1950s he resumed his healing practice and operated quietly until his death in 1966. His son, H. Jay Dinshah, continues Ghadiali's work. In 1944 Dinshah wrote regarding this book that he was now 70 years of age and wanted to leave behind full information to prevent opponents taking advantage of his physical absence and that the trail of knowledge blazed by him would continue to illuminate for the perpetual Service Of Mankind.
