Health with Colors: The Interrelation of Food and Chakras

Light is necessary for all physiological functions in our bodies. In fact, it acts as an ignition system. Each color has a specific wavelength that stimulates specific body systems. But we are spending most of the time under the influence of artificial light and our bodies are starving for real light and color.

Food is one of the ways to get real light and color. Scientists have concluded that the light energy from the food we eat has a remarkable effect on many biological functions.

  9. A friend of mine taught me the Chakra’s and the colours and this reminded me about it all over again! Now I can print it out and have another copy to keep, thank you.

  10. Thank you Lucy.

  11. thank you for this information, but i feel that you haven’t reseached it properly, there are plenty more things you should write about the chakras and not stick to what is commonly thought of as ‘normal’ for them. you do not have to stick to the trdaitional ‘colours’ or thoughts concerning each chakra. allow your instincts to guide you. i am a teacher in this field and although what you have put is basically correct, do not restrict people by only stating what everyone else ‘feels,thinks’ about our energy system.

    Thank you.

  12. I don’t think the foods included here are exactly correct about supporting each chakra. Some or a lot of them seem arbitrary, or simply indirect at best.

    For example, why would carrots, sweet potatoes, oranges, and corn support the sacral chakra? I can understand that the vibrations of colors can make a difference but not as much as the biochemistry of those actual foods. If that chakra has so much to do with the endocrine system, desire and sex, if you lived off those foods you’d find yourself being amenorrheic and having no/low sexual desire. I think that it is more logical to think that eating fat and not being in a Calorie deficit will result in it being balanced.

  13. I’m portuguese and i make a project work about chakras!
    these site it’s very interresting and help me in my project!
    thank you!
