REYES PEREZ, Amarilys  and  ALVAREZ GOMEZ, José Ángel. Uso terapéutico del color como método tradicional. Rev Cubana Enfermer [online]. 2001, vol.17, n.3, pp.163-167. ISSN 0864-0319.

Color therapy is a natural traditional method and diseases are caused by unbalances in a certain color of the spectrum in the human organism, where each color has a compensating effect to attain the organic balance. Taking into consideration all these aspects about the effect of color in its multiple actions, we conducted a clinical trial in which 80 patients from a health area of "Wilfredo Santana Rivas" Polyclinic, in Eastern Havana, were studied aimed at identifying the color in charge of the energetic balance in the organism and the deficient color in those patients with emotional disorders and to verify the results obtained in the therapy with the use of color in clothes and food, after having made a visual test of balance by colors. They were evaluated during the 4 weeks of the experiment. The statistical method used was the chi square test and it was concluded that the energetic balance of the organism was composed of the color opposed to the one they like and the one they dislike in order of frequency. The deficient color in those patients with alteration of their emotional state was the blue color, the green color when they were anxious and the red color when they were depressed.
