and Complementary Medicine for Heart Disease
A number of colors are important in cardiovascular health.
Red increases circulation and energy and reduces nervousness. Red is an important color for heart disease because healthy arteries are light red and the heart is dark red. Red should not be used if there is already too much red in the patient (indicated by an overly reddish face, fever, easy excitability or red hair).
You can also meditate on the colors or eat appropriately colored foods. Red foods include radishes, beets, tomatoes, red cabbage, red currants, red plums, watermelon, whole wheat, liver, red wine and grapes. Red metals and chemicals include barium, cadmium,
copper, nitrogen, iron, neon, oxygen, potassium and zinc.

It stimulates the heart and adrenal glands and acts as a diuretic to flush excess fluid from the body.
Magenta also helps to calm excited emotions.
