The Healing Power of Color: How Chromotherapy Can Enhance Your Health

Chromotherapy, or the use of light to boost health, has been used for over 2000 years. Evidence of its use by the Egyptians has been well documented, again during the Middle Ages by Sir Issac Newton, and more recently, in 1997, the effects of light and color began to be studied on a DNA level. Today we know that color affects our bodies in multiple ways from hormonal processes, inflammation control, mental health, and more. Similar to infants with jaundice exposed to blue light and white light to treat cancers, medical practitioners can use various colors to treat things like depression and behavior concerns.

Chromotherapy refers to the visible spectrum of light and its healing properties. The rainbow of color available triggers your body's natural functions, sending various messages to release hormones, heal sickness, and stimulate wellness. While the ancient world understood this, the science behind it was limited. Today, studies are finding that various colors can heal, calm, stimulate, and energize. Patients may reduce or eliminate symptoms by combining chromotherapy with other naturopathic medicine. While all therapies should continue under the guidance of a licensed medical practitioner, chromotherapy is an un-invasive treatment that is customizable to the patient.
