Bis heute blieben ihre Erkenntnisse leider nur einer Minderheit zugänglich, ihre Bücher seien heute zum Großteil nicht mehr erhältlich. Daß Fettsäuren der eigentliche Lichtträger und Lichtspeicher im Organismus seien, werde nun von anderen Seiten der Wissenschft bestätigt (F. A. Popp). Auch neue Erkenntnisse der Diabetes- und Allergie-Forschung gäben ihr immer wieder recht.
