Color and light therapy.. “Big secret” in blue and green

And it doesn’t stop there. Another study showed that students who got the red number before taking the test scored 20 percent lower than the students who got the green and black numbers.

While a third study shows that people who work in green offices have higher job satisfaction.

This major breakthrough in research dealing with the effect of color and light therapy, is associated with the increasing prevalence of visible light spectra, and their incorporation into complementary medical treatments.

Color therapy through the ages

Color therapy was not a coincidence. It has existed for thousands of years in the ancient Egyptians, who used sunlight and colors to heal, as well as the Chinese and Greeks who used stones and dyes in colorful therapeutic shelters.

The course of color therapy was further developed by the eminent philosopher and physician Avicenna in AD 980, according to the Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy. It must be exposed to the blue color to stop the bleeding.

Other definitive studies made their way in the 19th century, thanks to scientist Edwin Babbitt who developed a set of protocols, including the use of blue and violet frequencies for sedatives, orange as a stimulant, and yellow as a laxative.

Then the Danish physician Nils Ryberg-Vinsen received the Nobel Prize in Medicine in 1903 for his use of white light in the treatment of diseases of the brain.

Subsequently, the Indian Dinsha Ghadiali proposed the encyclopedia of spectrometry in color therapy, for more than 300 diseases.

What is color therapy? And what are its benefits?

Color therapy is a narrow band in the cosmic electromagnetic energy spectrum, consisting of red, green, blue and their derivatives combined, producing the colors we perceive visually and sensory, lying between the ultraviolet and infrared bands.

These visible colors at a specific wavelength and unique vibrations, when combined with light and selectively projected onto malfunctioning organs or systems in the human body, provide much needed healing energy that the body needs. Colors are radiant energy that generates electrical impulses and magnetic currents, which activate chemical and hormonal processes in the human body or be soothing to balance the entire system.

Scientists divide colors into two main types:

Positive colors: They are characterized by their acid reaction and activating rays; Like red, orange, yellow and black.

Negative colors: They are characterized by an alkaline reaction, as their rays are cool and soothing, such as blue and green.

Regarding the benefits of this treatment, Duke University Anesthesiology Professor Padma Golor confirms that the use of color therapy is beneficial for a variety of physical and mental illnesses, and to relieve emotional disorders such as depression.

The clinical trials conducted by Golor on the use of green light for pain relief have achieved high positive results with patients who were suffering from acute or chronic pain, such as cancer patients or those suffering from migraines, after they were exposed to the green light either by sitting in a green room or wearing green-lighted glasses. They felt relief from pain despite reduced use of pain relievers and opioids.

Green is also a color that improves performance and learning skills. Kate Lee of the University of Melbourne advises learners, employees and employers to be in an environment rich in the following colors:

Green: Promotes feelings of well-being and calm, and improves long-term efficiency, focus and clarity.

Orange: improves mood and nervous performance, promotes rest and increases the supply of oxygen to the brain, which stimulates mental activity and readiness to “get things done”.
Blue: Relaxing and calming, but it suits most intellectual employers such as programmers and academics, they are more productive in a blue environment.
