The chakras are at the heart of traditional Chinese and Indian medicine. Even if they are invisible, they are of paramount importance to our physical, mental and emotional health.
That’s why we must take care of them! Here is everything you need to know about chakras.
7 chakras govern our health
Located in different parts of the body, there are 7 chakras. They are points through which energy enters and flows through the body.
The chakras form the basis of Ayurvedic medicine and are an integral part of the practice of acupuncture.
To understand the meaning of the chakras it is enough to know what the word means in Sanskrit: circle. They are indeed circles, about 10 cm in diameter, which form a whirlpool in different places of the body.
Here are the 7 chakras and their location:
- the sacred chakra, below the navel…
- the solar plexus chakra, between the heart and the navel
- the third eye, in the middle of the forehead
- the root chakra, at the base of the spine
- the crown chakra, above the head.
- the heart chakra, in the middle of the chest…
- the throat chakra
Natural stones all have different therapeutic virtues.
Here are a few examples: Amber would protect children against whooping cough and toothache (when children were born, it was customary to give them an amber necklace); emerald would be beneficial for memory, heart, sleep, sight; jade would be effective for kidney problems; ruby would be a great re-energizer for the whole body, improve blood circulation, fight depression; sapphire would eliminate headaches, improve eyesight, make people happier; blood would relieve haemorrhoids, fight anaemia, increase longevity, etc.
All these are just a few examples among many others
As you can see, there would exist natural stones that cure all the little daily boo-boos or all the illnesses.
Their strong energy and color would have the effect of rebalancing the body and mind. You can visit www.france-minerals.co.uk/ and learn more about natural properties.
Serious and extensive studies are still lacking to confirm their benefits, however, many people use them and seem to be better off.
In any case, a priori, it should not have any harmful effects on your body to wear, for example, a natural stone on you.
However, if you are interested in this form of therapy, don’t hesitate to consult specialists (provided you choose them carefully, as there is no federation or state-recognised training) and above all, never neglect to go to your GP in the event of illness or health problems.
