Color psychology as therapy? Do you believe that different colors have different healing capacities?
Yes it is true that colors make a positive or negative effect on you depending upon the circumstances you are in.
For example: when you enter a red colored room, the pulse and heart beat increases and when you enter into a blue colored room, your heart beat and pulse will come down to normal.
It’s silly to hear that colors can cure your diseases and can affect the systems in the body. But many psychologists and physiologists believe in color therapy and its effects on the bodies of diseased persons.
Physiological effects are the effects that are shown by the color on your body. Psychological effects are those, which let others know about you. Here are some of the colors and its effects
Physiological effect: Stimulates body and mind by increasing the blood circulation. Stimulation of adrenal glands is shown so consequently that you become strong and increase your inner stamina.
Red color dispels the negative thoughts but some times make the person irritated. The negative effects of red are increase in blood pressure and heart beat.

Color can make an impact on you- we all have different tastes and different ideologies for color. But many researches have proven that, colors show impact on us and can heal diseases without showing much adverse effects.
