You can think of these patterns of signals in the human subtle energy field as types of Morse code transmitting vital information between cells in your body. It is possible that these four meta-types of oscillating patterns stem from the distinct oscillations in the four core elements of life: oxygen, nitrogen, hydrogen and carbon. These are the elements that make up 96% of all living matter and they are also four of the building blocks in your DNA –the fifth is phosphorus: an essential element that is present in your body only in trace amounts. The ancient Greeks referred to phosphorus as "the light bearer” and it is possible that along with oxygen, it functions as an internal catalyst and conductor in the metabolization of light by the endocrine system. The impact of light on the endocrine system is now being researched and documented extensively. The Alpha Element types in AET may represent four distinct types of metabolism/processing of light by the body. When analyzed in the context of the circadian system and its four major feedback loops (liver, kidney, heart and brain) the four meta types may indicate twenty-four types of endocrine profiles.
Distinctions in the impact of various frequencies of light on physiological processes, have been documented by research on the role of blue and green light in the release of the hormone melatonin by the pineal gland which regulates the central 24 hour, circadian rhythms in the body. The circadian clock has a vital and broad range of influence on biological processes such as metabolism, temperature regulation and the immune system. According to the Center for Chronobiology at USC, San Diego, the timing of drug administration may increasingly become a factor to be controlled in the clinical evaluation of experimental cancer drugs.
New studies have also found that creating distinctive light signals by dynamically manipulating color, duration and pattern of light exposure, current light therapies can be optimized to treat conditions such as dementia and Seasonal Affective Disorder. Another dimension of the impact of light on information processing by the body has been documented by scientific studies on the health benefits provided by different flavonoids (plant pigments) in foods. This research suggests that it is the specific color (visible light frequencies) of pigments that function as potent factors in intracellular communication and that different colors produce distinctive, unique signals that stimulate or inhibit specific neurochemical reactions and immune responses in the body.
As an aspect of diet and nutrition, research has shown that the impact of phytonutrients (micronutrients in plants) is substantial. Nutritionists recommend taking color as well as freshness into account when making dietary decisions. Many of the pigments in phytonutrients have potent anti inflammatory agents as well as other health benefits. For example, curcumin, the yellow pigment in turmeric, has an anti-inflammatory effect comparable to those of hydrocortisone and ibuprofin - without the side effects.
