  title={Chromo therapy-An Effective Treatment Option or Just a Myth ? ? Critical Analysis on the Effectiveness of Chromo therapy},
  author={Somia Gul and Rabia Nadeem and Anum Aslam},
Background: Chromo therapy or commonly color therapy falls under the category of Complementary and Alternative Medicine System (CAMS) of treatment by utilizing electromagnetic radiations with different frequencies which effects human nuerohormonal pathways and can be helpful to cure diseases. It is one of the most successful ancient practices which are now gaining interest as a valid and effective science. It is a well established fact that chromo therapy triggers the specific points in our… Expand
