Color Health

The use of color as a form of treatment has not been taken very seriously in the medical world until recently. Forms of alternative medicine such as color therapy/chromotherapy, gemstone therapy, and crystal therapy were cast aside as superstitious hoaxes, which warranted no medical respect. This disdains or the use of color in the medical field has been replaced with the acknowledgement of the effects that color can have on a person's general health and well-being. It is true that, on a daily basis, color can improve your mood and help to counteract common ailments. Seeing the color red can generate a little extra energy. A blue wall may help to calm, while dark blue can help to focus. The color purple can help increase creativity. In this way, color greatly improves your daily mental health.

The question arises, "why do different colors have different effects on the human body and health?" Some believe the driving forces behind these effects are the human mind and cultural symbols. The human mind has been conditioned to associate certain colors with certain feelings and for this reason; color can have an impact on health. Support of this theory is drawn from the fact that different cultures tend to sometimes have different color associations. In the western world, black is a color representing evil, darkness and other symbols of negativity, but it can also represent prestige or sophistication. These contrasting symbols, lead to contrasting effects of color on the human psyche in different cultures. Others believe that the effectiveness of color on health lies in the different wavelengths of each color. It is an accepted theory that, red, blue, yellow, etc. have different frequencies and therefore different vibrations. Color therapists also believed that different organs in the body have different frequencies as well. This theory places the ability for color to heal, in the ability to match specific frequencies of color with the matching organ. Through this match of frequencies, it is believed possible to cure, or lessen the effect of diseases, pain and any other unbalance that the human body can be subject to.

Is the connection between health and color all in the mind? Or are there actual medical benefits? As of now, there is not a clear agreement on the reason why color effects human health, nor is their agreement on to the extent of the effects. It is however, noted that color has an effect on the human psyche. Colors have the power to calm, excite, or even depress people. It is through this connection with the human psyche that makes the power of color with health limitless; it is also what makes the further exploration of color and health necessary.
