HEALTH: THE CHAKRAS.
Both, the Thyroid and the Thymus gland, are important for our health and we need to work on the respective chakras to prevent any disease related to them.
Let us check this out.
THE VISHUDDHA CHAKRA AND THE THYROID GLAND.
<< The thyroid gland controls how quickly the body uses energy, makes proteins, and controls how sensitive the body is to other hormones.>>
· Thyroid nodules
· Thyroid cancer
That article (MedicinNet.com) also explains the symptoms and signs of each disorder. If you would like to read the whole article please check here: Thyroid Disorders
WE NEED TO WORK ON THE VISHUDDHA CHAKRA.
When working on the Vishuddha Chakra, for example, we bring more energy to the Thyroid gland and it can, eventually, work better.
Working on the chakras is possible, but it is to prevent any disease or disorder; but it does not cure them. Once you are sick you need to see your doctor for a better advice.
THE ANAHATA CHAKRA AND THE THYMUS GLAND.
Wikipedia has a very nice article about the Thymus gland and the immune system:
“The immune system is a multicomponent interactive system. It effectively protects the host from various infections. An improperly functioning immune system can cause discomfort, disease or even death. The type of malfunction falls into one or more of the following major groups: hypersensitivity or allergy, auto-immune disease, or immunodeficiency.”
Wikipedia explains different malfunctions such as: Hypersensitivity, Immunodeficiency, DiGeorge syndrome, SCID, HIV/AIDS, Autoimmune disease, APECED, Myasthenia gravis, Cancer, Thymomas, Lymphomas, Cervical thymic cyst and Thymectomy. If you would like to read the whole article go here: Thymus
The Thymus gland, as we can see, is really important. Practicing mantras for the Anahata Chakra affect both: The thymus and the heart! Isn’t that great? Yes, it is! I have a good friend who was having allergies from many years. He got rip off those allergies working with yoga, meditation and using mantras for the Anahata Chakra. It took a lot of work, but he did it. I have to mention that this is a particular case and it might work well with some people, but maybe it will not work with everyone. Talking to your doctor will be always my first advice; then you might try alternative medicine (Including Yoga and meditation).
THE ANAHATA CHAKRA AND THE HEART.
A healthy body can do many things, but a sick one cannot do anything. Yoga and meditation can help you to have a great body, a good health, a nice mind and a beautiful soul!
THE IMPACT OF HEAR DISEASE!
I think The Heart Foundation has a very nice article about this matter. Let me show you a bit:
· “Heart disease is the number one cause of death for both men and women in the United States, claiming approximately 1 million lives annually.
· Every 33 seconds someone in the United States dies from cardiovascular disease which is roughly the equivalent of a September 11th-like tragedy repeating itself every 24 hours, 365 days a year.
· More die of heart disease than of AIDS and all cancers combined.”
Well, I invite you to read the whole article: Heart Disease: Scope and Impact
It is really important to be aware of all that information and we need to take action. Actually The Heart Foundation explains what do to minimize the risk of heart disease. It recommends exercising, a good diet, Maintaining a normal body weight, taking fish oil supplements, avoid smoking and drugs, etc. It could be nice if you read the whole article: How to Reduce Your Risk
It is really important to work on this chakra to avoid heart problems; but you have to visit your doctor. Yoga, meditation, mantras, etc. can help you to prevent heart disease; but a doctor can help you better, especially if you already have problems with your heart.
