Since light is the source of all color, it is only natural that colored light be the most common tool used today by physicians and practitioners of color therapy. Dichromatic lights provide pure color at its highest intensity. Physical healing is encouraged by directing colored light either towards the ailing areas of the body, directly through the eyes to affect the brain's hypothalamus, or by treating the chakra system of the body.

Color Therapy Lights

GE's Dichromatic Lights feature the purest, most intense color available in an incancescent type bulb. Provides warmth which is nice when treating colds, flu, and neuropathy in the legs and feet. Available in Red, Amber, Green and Blue.

here's what these GE dichro light bulbs look like-

Enlux High Intensity LEDs - use 65% less energy, lasts about 15 years, earth-friendly. No heat in the beam makes these lights great for treating larger at a closer distance a closer distance.

Instructions for General Therapy and Use for Infection Control

Illuminate the infected area for 10 - 20 minutes once or twice daily at a distance of two to four feet.

If infected area is on or near the face, please use the protective eyewear (I got sun tanning goggles for $2 on Ebay). I actually put the lights really close to my skin. close enough to feel warm. sometimes I lay in bed with light shining on me- my face and body. I adjust it when I feel like covering different sides of my body.

By the way, my cat loves to sit under these lights as well

The Color Yellow and the Human Being

Yellow is a combination of the RED & GREEN rays and therefore is both stimulating and regenerating. Yellow is very advantageous for the nerves and the brain bringing a sharpening of the mental abilities. In Color Therapy it is used for psychological problems like melancholy, depression and world-wariness. Standing for lightness and cheerfulness it enlivens and comforts. Yellow carries additional physical benefits in its effects on the nutritional organs; the liver, intestines, stomach, spleen and bladder. Purification and elimination through the liver, color and skin are promoted by the Yellow ray.
Yellow light at 590 nm is used for its healing, draining and detoxifying properties. It is absorbed by the body fluids in the lymph and blood circulatory systems and promotes wound healing. Yellow light also increases lymphatic flow to evacuate more wate products and boosts cellular activity.

Can you link us to the evidence that shows these colours have the very specific effects you're claiming for them?

Human beings have evolved to function best under sunlight. We don't do so well in darkness, or under light of any particular colour, simply because our eyes don't work so well in monochromatic light. It is unusual for a human being to spend all or most of her time in a monochromatically-lit environment. I suppose it is possible that very long periods of time spent under light of a single colour would cause our bodies to function differently in various ways, but one would hardly imagines these changes could be beneficial to us.

It is true that colour affects mood. But somatic (bodily) changes are something else again.

Please show us some scientific evidence, or stand accused of talking fantastic bollocks.

Hmm. Half a month gone by and no response. Clearly there is no evidence, and chromotherapy is a crock.

Thought so all along.
