Orange:  The Color of Confidence,
Energy, Joy and Warmth

The person with an abundance of orange color energy is usually an extrovert.  They can be very creative and have lots of energy.  Orange energy relates to our sexuality and digestive system, as well as our self-worth and confidence.  These people are sensual eaters....they often eat on the level of that which gives them a pleasurable experience.  They want to feel and experience everything.  Orange is a color that is often used to treat depression.  Orange individuals often start many projects they do not finish, but these creative expressions are needed to keep the orange energy from being block.  If it does become blocked, physical problems can occur related to the sexual organs and digestive system.  To keep them in balance, they should eat plenty of fresh natural orange foods, such as apricots, carrots, papayas, peaches, and squashes.

To find out if you have an orange predisposition, ask yourself:

1.  Do you have auburn or copper-colored hair?
2.  Do you have a fair skin or freckles?
3.  Do you have hazel or brown eyes?
4.  Do you tend to have many projects on the go at once?
5.  Are you generally outgoing and sociable?

If you scored 0 to 1, your orange center is probably under-energized.
If you scored 2 to 3, you received a balance of orange energy from your parents
If you scored 4 to 5, you have an orange color predisposition.

If you feel your orange energy is out of balance (too energized),  the antidote for orange is blue, specifically indigo.  Both will calm you, but indigo is just a little bit more powerful than blue.

Blue foods include:

blueberries, blue plums, cabernet grapes, asparagus, kelp, mushrooms, blue-skinned potatoes, spirulina, blue maize, brewer's yeast, polyunsaturated oils, blue-scaled whitefish.

Blue herbs include:  borage flowers, chamomile, chicory flowers, clary sage, cloves, hyssop, marjoram, pansies, caraway, catmint, garlic, hops, irish sea moss, kelp, sweet marjoram, thyme, valerian, yarrow.

Blue herbal teas include:  blackberry, borage flower, elderflower, licorice root.

Those with too much orange energy will want to avoid all red and yellow food coloring additives.  When reading labels, here are some of the names to watch for:

allura red, amaranth carmoisine, azorubine, erythrosine BS, FD&C red no. 40, FD&C red no. 2, FD&C red no. 3, ponceau 4R, cochineal redA, and FD&C yellow no. 6 which in imported foods can be called either E110 or E102.
