Color therapy in the treatment of eye disease — nothing new under the sun

The College of Syntonics has investigated specific color wavelengths and has studied their affects on eye disease. This research is ongoing, but data indicate that certain frequencies of blue-green light can improve the vision of patients with macular degeneration, while certain frequencies of green light can reduce eye pressure in patients with glaucoma.

Color therapy sounds like something that belongs in the interior design business and not in the doctor’s office, but you may be surprised to know that there is a long history of color in the treatment of eye disease. The College of Syntonics, a 73-year-old institution, has long investigated color therapy and eye disease.

Evidence shows that disease is caused by an imbalance in the autonomic nervous system, which has two parts: the sympathetic nervous system and the parasympathetic nervous system. The sympathetic system is responsible for survival (also known as the “fight or flight” instinct), while the parasympathetic system is responsible for everyday, life-sustaining activities like digestion and healing disease. To illustrate the difference: when you are running away from a grizzly bear, your body does not care about digesting your food.

Stress certainly contributes to disease, but it can also be the fuel that sustains disease and prevents healing. The mechanism of stress is believed to overstimulate the sympathetic nervous system and to suppress the parasympathetic. When the parasympathetic system is suppressed, the body has a difficult time healing disease. Healing will not take place unless and until there is a balance in the autonomic system.

No, we do not need any extra of this type of stimulant, since most of our life takes care of this very nicely. The color red has been associated with anger, increased heart rate and elevated blood pressure.

The color blue, on the other hand, tends to relax the sympathetic system and stimulate the parasympathetic. This is the first step towards healing disease. Think about how relaxing the blue ocean water and blue sky can be. A vacation to the beach can be very healing.

The key is “certain frequencies,” as each color contains myriad frequencies. The task is to identify the frequency that best resonates with a particular person’s eye.

This therapy can be compared to microcurrent stimulation. In microcurrent stimulation, specific frequencies of low current are administered to the body to treat disease. Just like ion color therapy, the success of the treatment is based on selecting the proper frequency for the patient.
