Our bodies need a variety of fresh and unprocessed foods to be healthy. Chemical additives, GMOs, and artificial sweeteners have been shown to be detrimental to human health. Fluoride, which is commonly added to drinking water and toothpaste has done more to undermine chakra balance than all other additives combined.
There is growing evidence that natural foods such as beta-carotene in carrots and other orange and yellow vegetables play a vital role in overall health. Five servings daily of beta-carotene rich fruits and three servings of pumpkin, squash, sweet potatoes and/or rutabagas, are recommended by many dieticians.
An under-active base chakra may be restored by eating red colored fruits like apples, tomatoes or cherries. These provide nutrient-dense fiber and vitamins and should be eaten as often as possible.
An under-active solar plexus chakra may be restored by eating yellow fruits such as peaches, pears, bananas. Aim for 2 servings daily. Wash the skin well before peeling.
Lightly cooked or raw vegetables bring balance to the higher chakras like the Brow or the Anja [ 3rd eye, pineal gland ]. Organically grown salads, sunflower seeds, raw spinach, kale, lightly cooked green cabbage, should be eaten several times each week. Fresh fruit smoothies as well as green smoothies are excellent for restoring chakras.
Avoid high protein diets where 50% or more of the daily calorie intakes comes from beef, pork or antibiotic-fed poultry. Animal proteins disrupt the transmission of pranic energy through the nervous system. Slowly switch over from meat consumption to legumes, sprouts, nuts, organic eggs, raw vegetables and whole, unprocessed grains.
The three major chakras perceive food in this manner: base chakra = smell; sacral chakra = taste, and solar plexus chakra = sight.
Blessed be, sweet ones.
