|Healing Food for Your Chakras - Infographic from|
In Ayurveda, an ancient healing and life science, it is thought that when a chakra becomes blocked or imbalanced, the energy flow in the body is disrupted. This disruption may then lead to a variety of illnesses and diseases, and overall diminished health. Over the centuries, many methods have been developed to heal, balance and clear blocked chakras - including yoga, meditation and visualization practices, aromatherapy, gemstone, color and sound therapy.
In addition to these therapies, one other way to balance and clear a blocked chakra is to nourish it with foods that are in alignment with the color, vibration and other characteristics of that chakra.
This infographic from Dahn Yoga & Tai Chi illustrates some of the foods that nurture each of the chakras:
☯ Root Chakra - red foods, root vegetables, protein-rich foods and spices
☯ Sacral Chakra - orange foods, sweet fruits and vegetables, raw honey, nuts and spices
☯ Solar Plexus Chakra - yellow foods, granola, grains, dairy, spices
