Possible Health Benefits of Color Therapy

Color and Alternative Medicine

As part of alternative medicine, color therapy uses light to treat some conditions. Each color has different associations, attributes and possible benefits. See for more information on this subject. Color therapy is thought to work like this:

Each color vibrates at a specific frequency. It is thought that our glands and organs also vibrate at specific frequencies. Color frequencies are matched to the glands and organs with the same frequencies. When sickness occurs, our glands and organs may become out of balance and not function at their proper frequency causing them to not work properly. The thought is that if the proper frequency can be restored, glands and organs will then function properly again.

How could color therapy glasses affect your mood? Try yellow for intellectual clarity. Are negative thoughts a problem, perhaps red would help. Blue may be calming. Green could be a color for achieving an overall feeling of wellbeing. For more information, please click on color therapy. Or click here to read about color therapy associations. Even the established medical community uses color for healing. For example, for decades, babies with jaundice have been treated with blue light. Read more here about the possible medical benefits of color therapy.

Can RED help you sleep?

It has been shown in a small clinical study that wearing red or magenta glasses after the sun goes down increases the secretion of melatonin by 70%.

If you watch TV or a movie after 9:00, try wearing magenta glasses which will block out the green light.

Conventional Medicine Uses Color

Most people would agree that light affects us. Even conventional medicine uses light to treat certain diseases. Here are some examples:

  • Premature babies with hyperbilirubinemia, or jaundice, a liver condition, have been treated for decades by putting them under blue light.
  • It has been recognized for a long time that exposure to full spectrum light helps with SAD, Seasonal Affective Disorder.


Color Therapy and Holistic Health

For those interested in holistic health, color therapy glasses are a convenient and effective way to apply color therapy. Color entering through your eyes is thought to be directed to the hypothalamus gland, then to the pineal gland, followed by the pituitary gland which regulates hormone production. Cellular and hormonal changes could result as the brain processes this information. The frequency of the color may be transmitted to the corresponding area of the body, the area which recognizes it. Since the frequency of the color does not change, the vibration can "tune" the body. That area of the body could be restored to health by restoring it to the proper vibration. If the color is used regularly, it may learn to function properly on its own.

Besides wearing color therapy glasses, you can wear specific color of clothes, talk a colored bath, use color therapy oils, use a colored lamp or paint your walls certain colors.

Following is information on how each color is used in color therapy, however more research is needed. If you choose to use color therapy to compliment medical treatment, please advise you doctor you are doing so. Also note that different states have different regulations regarding alternative medical practitioners. Please choose one that is licensed by a national organization which requires members to abide by the organization's standards.
