Colour therapy or chromotherapy as it is sometimes known is a treatment that is available and being used throughout the world as a complementary treatment for a wide range of illnesses: asthma, arthritis, eating disorders, skin diseases, digestive ailments, blood and circulation problems, fevers, rheumatism, shock, relief of pain and as part of the treatment for serious illnesses such as paralysis, multiple sclerosis, M.E, cancers and Aids. It can be used to great effect in the treatment of nervous and mental disorders and depression.
Using Colour may also help to speed up recovery after an illness or an operation. Even modern medicine understands the healing property of different colours and many hospitals now use appropriate colours for the decoration of wards with very positive results.
Many ancient cultures from the Mayans to the Native Americans knew how the different colours in nature affected them and used colours to bring balance and harmony in all areas of their lives. Light and colour connected them to nature and to the rhythms of the universe.
When people moved away from nature and began living indoors and away from natural daylight, they found that they started becoming ill. People then began to realise that the colours of the food they ate affected their well-being and that colours could also be used for protection and to encourage good fortune.
