Color, which is a manifestation of light, can be a very valuable clinical tool. I have used color for several years and can assure people that it is not an anemic or esoteric modality. The fact that it is simple and inexpensive does not diminish its clinical potential. Evidently the authorities thought there was something powerful about it since they actually banned its use years ago.

Color can be utilized therapeutically in different ways. One of my favorite ways is through the eyes. Looking through colored colorssheets or lenses are a direct way to access the brain and nervous system. The eyes are actually an extension of the brain. Of the three billion messages sent to the brain every second, two billion are sent from the eyes. Input via the eyes has a direct route to the hypothalamus in the brain. The hypothalamus is the conductor of the autonomic nervous system, which controls and regulates the internal functions of the body. It is constantly trying to keep balance within the body.

There are two parts to the autonomic nervous system (ANS). One part is the sympathetic nervous system and the other is called the parasympathetic nervous system. The sympathetic system is used when action and movement are required and the parasympathetic system helps with repair and relaxation. The two systems should operate in balance. Health issues arise when one system is dominate. Color therapy can assist in maintaining balance. If a person is mostly sympathetic, a color in the blue spectrum might be beneficial, for example. In the office, I can analyze the response in the person’s nervous system to determine the precise color that gives the desired result. If one is predominately parasympathetic driven, a color in the red spectrum might be called for. Wearing the appropriate colored glasses every day will help to restore balance. It is difficult for healing to occur when that balance is absent.

Another application of color therapy is color applied directly over a particular body part or organ. Some colors would stimulate the area while other colors would have a depressed effect. By analyzing the reflexive response in the nervous system, the correct color can be found. I use colored film sheets. The appropriate one is put over the area and then I shine a light through the film for a few minutes. This is something the patient can do at home as well. For example, if a person had an intestinal issue that needed stimulation, yellow color might be applied to achieve the desired result. The film would be put over the specific area of the intestines and then a light would be shone through the film.

Color is a form of vibrational medicine that has withstood the test of time. I feel it is vastly underutilized. Brilliant pioneers of the past like Darius Dinshah have dedicated themselves to researching color therapy. He treated patients using only color therapy years ago and had significant clinical success. These were often very sick patients. This therapy does have a history and a track record, even though it is not known generally. It’s worth trying.
