colour therapy

Popular psychology
Any form of sensory “therapy” in which a patient is exposed to specific colours in the environment, in clothing or by lighting. While some data vaguely suggest that the autonomic nervous system is aroused by the colour red, and attenuated by blue, the efficacy of colour therapy is dubious at best. Colour therapy is integral to ayurvedic medicine, but is peripheral to mainstream psychiatric therapy.

Pseudomedicine
Any pseudotherapy in which a patient is exposed to coloured light, environment, clothing or food as a vehicle for treating organic disease.
