Yellow is warm (yang) and is associated with things sunny, cheerful, joyous, optimistic, practical, confident, and illuminating. It is also associated with wisdom, knowledge, logic and the mind.

Yellow is used to benefit the adrenal glands, gallbladder, liver, muscles, nervous system, pancreas, and stomach. Illnesses that can be treated with yellow are allergies, arthritis, asthma, constipation, coughs, depression, diabetes, eczema, gallstones, gas, hiatus hernia, hypothyroidism, indigestion, lymphatic congestion, motion sickness, and obesity. Yellow is a nerve stimulant; it can be helpful with depression, fear, and tension, and can soothe mental exhaustion.

Yellow in food often indicates the presence of lutein, magnesium, and Vitamin C and limonene. Because it is a sharpening colour that enhances alertness, concentration, communication, and focus, you will often find yellow on food packaging. May reduce the risk of cancer and heart disease. May strengthen bones and teeth, help the body heal wounds, keep skin healthy and maintain eyesight.

Yellow is happy, warm radiant and represents the Solar Plexus. Yellow whole foods are loaded with many antioxidants and phytochemicals which help promote healthy function of the liver, gall bladder, pancreas as well as other vital organs and the nervous system.
