For centuries it’s been believed that colours affect our health, body parts, mental harmony and even our emotions. Colours are vibrating electromagnetic energy. Everything in nature as well as all organs in our body have some vibrant colour or the other. Even modern scientists and medical experts have come around to the view that our body has specific energy fields (chakras). These emit different colours depending on our health.
In the ancient religious Hindu text Kurma Purana, each of the seven planets of the solar system is defined as the condensation of one of the seven cosmic rays. Interestingly, the principle of Chroma Therapy is that it harnesses the medicinal qualities of sunlight.
Chroma Therapy is said to be very effective and without any side-effects. In chronic cases, it should never be considered as a substitute for a professional physician or a super-specialist.
