Have you heard about color therapy?

I just heard about color therapy last night. The theory is that different colors can heal the body. For example, if you have a specific condition, you should shine different color lights on yourself in different areas or drink water that has been sitting out in the sun for a while with a specific color filter on it (specific to whatever the ailment might be). I know it sounds pretty "out there," but believe it or not some people swear by this. I was wondering if anyone knew about this & if they have ever heard about it working......

Color therapy is not so "out there" as one may think. Chromatherapy is an concept that dates back to ancient Egypt.

Over the years, I've taken numerous color tests, including the Luscher to a recent one with a name that I forgot (it was for management training), for learning how to deal with various personality types at work.

About healing properties of color:

"Egyptians built healing temples of light four thousand years ago, bathing patients in specific colors of light to produce different effects. Now, before you begin to pooh-pooh the pyramids, consider these factual goodies. Research shows that a blindfolded person will experience physiological reactions under different colored rays. In other words, the skin sees in Technicolor. Noted neuropsychologist Kurt Goldstein confirmed this information in his modern classic The Organism, where he notes that stimulation of the skin by different colors creates different effects."
