Color Therapy

 

Overview

Color therapy has been used for centuries to treat a number of physical and mental health problems. According to BHIA Organization, a branch of the medical site Healthcare Media International, color can be used in a number of ways to treat problems. Light therapy is a common option, but you can also explore colored crystals, Bach flower remedies and aromatherapy based on oils and flowers of certain colors and even a color-related diet.

Basics

According to the BHIA Organization, colors affect our mood and energy and as such can be used to treat or affect many aspects of our health and lives. Color therapy is a form of vibrational healing. Colors affect the pituitary, which in turn affect the entire metabolism. Because color therapy hasn't been properly studied, most of the results should be considered anecdotic and might or might not work for you.

Appetite Suppression

According to Reader's Digest, the color blue suppresses appetite, so making it part of your eating plan can help your weight loss efforts. Blue plates, a blue tablecloth or even painting the kitchen blue can all help. Colors in the red group, on the other hand, increase appetite, so they're best avoided when trying to lose weight. The color-therapy expert website Lightstreamers recommends exchanging the small bulb inside your fridge for a blue one so you're less tempted to snack every time you open the fridge.

Increased Metabolism

The color red increases appetite and shouldn't be used in your kitchen. However, according to Lightstreamers, red also increases metabolism, so it might be a good addition to your weight loss program. To include the color red in your weight loss program without tying it to foods, you could make red solarized water. This is done by wrapping a clear glass with red cellophane paper and putting the glass in the sunlight. After a few hours, the water will be energized with the color red and ready to drink.

Home Process

According to ColorMatters.com, blue is not a common color in nature, so your body automatically reacts against any blue food. If you cook, try using blue food dye on the meals you prepare. Adding a few drops to rice, pasta or bread can significantly reduce your attraction to the dish and cause you to eat less. If you can't afford to change the paint or replace the curtains in your home, add touches of the chosen color in small areas around the kitchen or dining room. Introduce one change at a time so you can see what works and what doesn't.

Color Therapy Weight Loss Tips

1 Replace your current refrigerator light with an inexpensive blue light. Blue light is thought to shrink growth and suppress the appetite.
2 Invest in a pair of yellow color therapy sunglasses, and wear them for 20 minutes a day to improve your focus and help you stick to your diet.
3 Take 10 minutes to visualize the color red. Do this twice a day for best results. Imagining red works differently on the mind and body than actually seeing red.
4 Hang pictures around the table or dining area that feature greens, violets and blues. These colors are thought to suppress the appetite.
5 Invest in a stylish black tablecloth. Black is also thought to suppress the appetite.

Being overweight is a result of an instability between the two colors that is red and blue, these colors rays body extracts from foods and from other resources.
