Who is Helios in Heliotherapy?


Helios was one of the Titan gods of the ancient Greek pantheon.  


On occasion you may find him called Helius, his Latin name.  His job was to take the sun across the sky each day.  When the day was to begin,


he drove the four steeds of his chariot,


which carried the sun, into the sky and toward the west.  Because of his strong association with the sun, in time Helios began to be identified with the god of light, Apollo.


Therefore as we start to look at heliotherapy, we understand it to be at first sun therapy.  

sun therapy

Modern politically correct healing arts thinking notwithstanding, exposure to pure sunlight has been a healing therapy down through the ages.  There were in times past and even now in some cases the use of the solarium and light as part of or and aid to the healing process.  


[We will talk about this later, but anything can be overused.  More is not necessarily better. This is especially true about primal heliotherapy.]


That being said heliotherapy is also light therapy in the use of various specific wavelengths of light for therapeutic purposes.  Sunlight is full spectrum light.  So what you do in light therapy

light therapy

is isolate the specific wavelength of light that is purpose or healing effectual for the specific issue at hand.  


In heliotherapy we are talking about physical light and not metaphysical light.  I am not speaking here against metaphysical light as a tool in healing.  That is a great visualization in the healing process.  But it is not in the same class of what is called heliotherapy.


Judiciously used sun therapy can be healthful, therapeutic, and beneficial.

About The Author

He was the author of two books now out of print and several that he has not pushed for publication. He has written numerous articles in pier review journals during his time in traditional ministry.

He was invited to be on the translation committee for a modern Bible translation but declined, for philosophic differences over translation presuppositions.

His studies in comparative religions led him into an in depth study of metaphysics.

He has a knack for noticing overlapping principles in different systems. It occurred to him that when things keep showing up in many religions that these maybe the secret truth past down from our ancient past that are applicable to us today.

As in folk lore Odin hung from the tree upside down and after nine days, came to know the secret runes. Today Dr. Bill strives to look at repeating truths in a different way. He is willing as needed to take the time to see the secrets that are ready to be opened from different directional considerations.

Dr. Bill was a traditional minister for 25 years, filling pulpits two times a week and teaching many classes.

Now he has centered his work on the metaphysical of spirituality.

Dr. Bill looks at the metaphysical and spiritual from a new eclectic perspective. This rare insight has been a boon to him and as he works to help you can be a boon to you
