Chromatherapy, also known as color therapy, uses color wavelengths or vibrations combined with a light source to provide the necessary healing energy the body requires. Inspired by the father of color medicine, Dr. Dinshah P. Ghadiali, Charles Klotsche developed the 49th Vibrational Technique, which uses color vibrations directed at specific parts of the body to increase, decrease, or neutralize the energy level in order to stimulate self-healing.
Although not widely accepted in mainstream medicine for other ailments, color therapy is used on a daily basis in hospitals to treat preterm infants with jaundice, which is caused by elevated levels of bilirubin. One study comparing turquoise versus blue light found that the decrease in serum concentrations of bilirubin was greatest in infants treated with turquoise light. Consequently, color therapy does have significant health benefits.
