The Healing Secrets of Color

From ancient times, healers from all over the world have used color to harmonize internal energies so that the entire body is in better balance. This leads to greater overall health and well-being. Now, modern research has agreed by concluding that color can have a positive affect on our state of mind and overall health. Here is a list of common illnesses and complaints with the colors best suited to assist in healing them.

  • Blue: anxiety, acne, asthma, backache, blisters, bruises, burns, cough, cramp, dermatitis, earache, emphysema, gallstones, hernia, herpes, hiccups, influenza, itching, laryngitis, PMS, sneezing, sores, sprains, stiffness, stings, stress, sunburn, tonsillitis, toothache, wheezing.
  • Violet: Conjunctivitis, earache, menopause, mental illness, myopia, neuralgia, paranoia, warts.

How to Use Color for Healing
  • Simply visualize or imagine the color in your mind as you bathe or lie quietly on your bed, in order to restore your well-being.
  • Purchase a colored light bulb in the shade you need. Insert into your bathroom fixture or portable lamp (making sure it is a safe distance from the water) and use it while you take a healing bath.
  • Use natural food coloring in the bathwater. Several drops won’t affect your skin and will tint the water to a gentle hue.
  • Burn a candle in the appropriate color as you meditate, bathe, or simple lie quietly.
  • Eat foods of the same colors that you are wishing to work with.
It is not recommend that you use color therapy in place of medical attention, but rather as a compliment to your treatment plan.
