These are the basis of the five thousand year old Ayurvedic medicine. There are 7 major chakras, situated in a line along the back bone. Other medicines recognize them in different ways: in China, they have been included in acupuncture; in the West, they correspond to plexuses, networks of nerves and vessels, the best known of which is the solar plexus.
Chakras (energy centers) are a way of decoding the body's aches and pains. They trace the physical problem back to the emotion that created it, which is often deeply buried. Each chakra (energy center) is in close relationship with an endocrine gland. And the whole body is controlled and regulated by the endocrine system. By rebalancing the chakras (energy centers), many physical and emotional problems can be substantially improved.
|Chakra||Gland||Physical disorders||Emotional disorders|
|Root||Adrenal||Problems with muscles, kidneys, skin, blood, bones, obesity.||Nervous disorders, apathy, lack of reality, emotiveness.|
|Sacral||Gonads||Genital and urinary, blood and lymph disorders.||Insensitivity, shyness, anxiety, impotence, frigidity.|
|Navel||Pancreas||Digestive and immune system disorders, diabetes, obesity.||Egocentrism, nervousness, stress, irritability, depression.|

|Crown||Pineal||Psychomotor problems, headaches, skin problems.||Lack of reality, disconnected from reality, excess mysticism.|
It is vital for chakras to be balanced. A hyperactive energy center has adverse effects on physical and mental health. If a chakra is in a weak state, the energy is too low for it to function correctly, and disturbances occur. The right balance has to be found.
