How can we use Color Therapy on the physical level of our body by directing colors?Color Therapy works on the physical level by directing the appropriate color on the diseased part of the body. Each colour has its properties and so different colours can achieve different effects on the same area of the body, but the same colour can also have different effects on different areas of the body as well. Colours are a very powerful treatment medium especially if used directly in the form of coloured light, and as such they can have very powerful results if used in the appropriate way.
Color Therapy works on the physical level through the body, by absorbing the selected color from the sunlight. In this process the body abosorbs the colors required to maintain balance, and these colors are absorbed by vibrations.

How can we use Color Therapy on the physical level of our body through the intake of Color Charged Water?Color Therapy also works on the physical level through the intake of Color-Charged Water. An ordinary glass of water can become medicinal when charged by sunlight. Tape a piece of colored paper or acetate around the glass (a colored bottle is even better) and let it sit in sunlight from six to eight hours. Even if the sun does not directly shine on the water it will still be charged.
An example of this is drinking red water in the morning to wake one up or invigorate the person, and drinking indigo at night to relax him. Treatment by the use of color-charged water is called Hydrochromotherapy.
