Scientists have been studying the affects of color on our moods and energy levels for years. Even the color one person prefers over another can be a suggestion as to how color makes someone feel. Dr. Alexander Schauss is one of the leading experts when it comes to color therapy and his research shows that when the energy of different colors enters our bodies it then affects the pineal gland. From here this then affects the production of certain hormones, then affecting a variety of different physiological cycles throughout our lives. This is one clear way to describe why and how color can affect our mood and lives in different ways each time we take in a new color or color energy.

From this theory, it is easy to see how the colors we choose for the clothes we wear, within the rooms we decorate and the colors we choose to surround ourselves with on a daily basis have an affect on our lives. Different colors have been proven to relieve stress, create more energy within the body and even alleviate pain and other chronic physical conditions. Of course each color has a different affect on different people. Blue for instance is a calming and relaxing color and is often used to lower blood pressure, heart rate and respiration. One study was conducted to show the powers of the color blue when it was placed in a classroom to improve student’s behavior, it was successful.

Green is another color that tends to have calming affects on a person. People who find that they are constantly depressed or anxious will find relief when they choose to surround themselves with green. Green can help with nervous disorders, heart problems, cancer and even exhaustion. On the other hand, the color red stimulates the energy within the body and creates a warming feeling on the contrary to the cooling feelings promoted by blue and green. So as an opposite of blue and green, red can increase your heart rate and brainwave activity. Red can help with many medical conditions that include anemia, bladder infections, impotence and skin problems as well.

Pink has been found to have calming affects on people with violent tendencies. Pink is often found within the décor of prisons, hospitals and rehabilitation centers throughout the country. Yellow is the most memorable of all the colors and is often used for paper color to help students and business professionals remember notes, etc. This color also has the potential to raise blood pressure and heart rate but not in an extreme way like the color red can.

Each and every color we take in during the day has one affect or another on us, even if we do not realize it. For those suffering from conditions like high blood pressure, heart disease or other serious conditions, consider what color therapy can do to help alleviate your symptoms on a daily basis.
