Alternative Therapy: Health Benefits of Color Therapy
Colors play a very important role in treating certain diseases. All colors vibrate at a specific frequency. It is said that organs and glands of our bodies also vibrate at specific frequencies and that colors correspond to the areas of our body which have the same frequency. When we are sick, our organs and glands may become out of balance and not function at their proper frequencies. Restoring the proper frequency is thought to restore health.
Following is information on how each color is used in color therapy, however more research is needed. Please consult a doctor before practising Color Therapy.
