Not only Mayan and Aztec pyramids, but long before them temple complexes and even dwellings were painted red. Here is why:
1. The wavelength of red light (colour) is the largest, so it has maximum effect. This exciting, warming, active and energetic colour, penetrates and activates all functions of the organism, stimulates nerve centers, energizes muscles and liver.
2. Our ancestors used it for the treatment of chicken pox, colds, pneumonia, asthma, etc., as well as some skin diseases.
For a short time, red colour increases muscle tension (acts like a dope), raises blood pressure and accelerates the breathing rhythm. During meditation, it is possible to recharge oneself, using the energy of red.
Red is not recommended in case of strong inflammatory processes, since it will be activating these processes even more.
