Color Therapy

Scientists have studied the effects of color on our moods, health, and way of thinking for years.

Even a person’s preference for one color over another may be related to the way the color makes you feel.

Color can be described as light – visible radiant energy – of certain wavelengths.

Photoreceptors in your retina, called cones, translate this energy into colors.

Your retina contains 3 kinds of cones:  one for blue, one for green, and one for red.

You perceive other colors by combining these colors in your brain.

The colors you choose for your clothes and for your home, office, car, and other surroundings can have a profound effect on you.

Colors have been known to ease stress, fill you with energy, and even alleviate pain and other physical problems.

This idea isn’t new.

In fact, the “color your world” idea is part of the ancient Chinese design technique feng shui.

When choosing a color to make a change in mood or to relieve discomfort, it’s vital to choose the color suited to your objective.

For instance, blue has a relaxing, peaceful, and calming effect.

Blue may slightly lower blood pressure, your heart rate, and respiration.

In one study, children prone to aggressive behavior became calmer when placed in a blue classroom.

Blue has also been found to make people feel cooler in hot and humid environments.

To help relieve the pain of ulcers, back problems, insomnia, rheumatism, and inflammatory disorders, surround yourself with blue, and focus your mind on the body part you want to heal while looking at the color.

One good place to do this is in the countryside, where the blue of the sky and the water can bring about a feeling of calming “oneness” with the universe.

Green, like blue, has a soothing and relaxing effect on your body as well as on your mind.

People who are depressed or anxious can benefit from green surroundings.

Green also helps nervous disorders, exhaustion, heart problems, and cancer.

When you’re ill, try sitting on a hillside or by a green pasture, and focus on the body part you want to heal.

Green may also be a good environmental color for your diet.

Like blue and green, violet creates a peaceful environment.

Violet also suppresses your appetite and is good for scalp and kidney problems and for migraine headaches.

The color red stimulates, excites, and warms your body.

Red increases your heart rate, brain wave activity, and respiration.

The color of passion and energy, red is also good for sexual dysfunction, as well as for anemia, bladder infections, and skin problems.

If you have poor coordination, you should avoid wearing the color red.

In addition, people suffering from hypertension (high blood pressure) should avoid rooms with a red decor, as this can cause their blood pressure to rise.

Conversely, red has a good effect on those with hypotension (low blood pressure).

Pink has a soothing effect on your body, relaxing your muscles.

Because it’s been found to have a tranquilizing effect on aggressive and violent people, pink is often used in prisons, hospitals, and juvenile and drug centers.

Those suffering from anxiety or withdrawal symptoms can benefit from pink surroundings.

Pink is also a good color for the bedroom, where it can help evoke feelings of romance.

Orange is the color of choice for stimulating your appetite and reducing fatigue.

Use this color in place mats and tablecloths, for example, to encourage a finicky eater or to pique the appetite of someone who’s ill.

This color should be avoided by those who are trying to lose weight.

If you’re feeling tired or run down, try wearing an orange garment to lift your energy level.

General weakness, allergies, and constipation may also improve.

Yellow is the most memorable of all the colors.

Whenever you want to remember something, jot it down on yellow paper.

This color also raises your blood pressure and increases your pulse rate, but to a lesser degree than red does.

As the color of sunshine, yellow has an energizing effect; it can help relieve depression.

A chromotherapist may use this color to treat muscle cramps, hypoglycemia, overactive thyroid, and gallstones.

Black is a “power” color.

Try wearing black clothes for a feeling of strength and self-confidence.

Black also suppresses your appetite.

If you want to lose weight, cover your dining table with a black tablecloth.

So surround yourself with green, violet, and black and stay away from orange while you’re trying to lose weight.
