Color has such a subtle effect on our lives that we rarely
give it a second thought. Color comes from daylight which
contains all eight colors of the spectrum: red, orange,
yellow, green, turquoise, blue, violet and magenta. It is
also a form of radiation.
Research has begun to validate the importance of color
in treating disease. For example, looking at blue light
has been shown to lower blood pressure by calming the autonomic
nervous system, while red light causes it to rise.
Each color is associated with one of the seven chakras
of the body, and every color has its complementary color.
Single colors or combinations of complementary colors can
be used to treat imbalances in the chakras or illness associated
with that bodily region.
We will examine how the various colors affect us. We will
cover all spectrum colors as well as some useful combinations.
