A colour said, in the construct of the pseudoscience of colour therapy, to combine the healing powers of red and yellow light.

Orange is believed–by colour “therapists”–to stimulate the thyroid, lungs, and circulation, integrate mental and physical energy, and promote a sense of well-being; orange colour therapy is claimed to be useful for gout, rheumatism, and tumours. There are no peer-reviewed studies to even vaguely suggest that colour therapy provides any form of health benefit.
