that colors hold a unique frequency for every hue and they have been
proven to impact our physical health as well. For example a study

lenses that were tinted rose and indigo. Other studies have shown
that white light used during the day helps with seasonal affective
disorder (SAD), sleep disturbances and Alzheimer's disease; while
another study showed that blue light positively affected women who
suffered from rheumatoid arthritis.
In addition, phototherapy has shown that using specific types of colored
light help to treat neonatal jaundice and erectile dysfunction. Examples
of such light are dichroic lamps, full-spectrum light and polychromatic
polarized light. Even the sun emits every single one of the color
wavelengths of the electromagnetic spectrum and we know how important
sunlight is to our health.

and color in particular affects us on many levels
through our mind, body and emotions. Every living

to sex and yet the impact of how they affect performance and
perception of your sexual experiences are enormous. With only

that we can't keep focusing only on the physical aspects of
our sexuality while neglecting that we are a whole person with
mental, emotional and even spiritual needs. In order to have
the best sex life you can, you must open your mind to try things
that empower, enlighten and return you to the magic of youthful
energy which is and will always be within you regardless of

in this fast paced society eating without even really tasting our
food. We tend to be on automatic pilot missing many beautiful parts
of life, including our sexuality. We all benefit when we take those

the essence of it. Things such appreciating the colors of sex are

while visualizing a color. Other techniques are to surround
yourself with that color using lighting, clothing and decor.
