Color affects our moods, health and the way we think.
Color can be defined as light- visible radiant energy- of wavelengths. The retina contains photoreceptors called cones, they translate this energy into colors. The retina has three kinds of cones: One for green, one for blue and one for red, other colors are understood combining these colors. Studies indicate that when the energy of color enters our bodies, it stimulates our pineal and pituitary glands. This in turn affects the production of certain hormones, which in turn affects a variety of physiological processes. This explains why color affects thoughts, moods, behavior and health. Many experts feel this process is separate from psychological and cultural factors. Color even has an effect on blind people who are thought to sense color as a result of the energy vibrations created in our bodies.
Colors have been known to alleviate stress, stimulate energy, alleviate pain, and help with other physical problems.
