The thyroid is located at the site of the fifth chakra (light blue, above). In traditional Indian medicine, the chakras dictate the energy flow and health of the person; they represent certain parts of the body. A blocked chakra indicates an imbalance, and fifth chakra blockages can indicate a few things, namely: improper voice modulation, sore throats, thyroid problems, and issues with independence, creativity and self-expression.
how to keep your thyroid healthy this summer, tip #5: speak your mind
Speaking truthfully and honestly, and not hiding our thoughts or creative impulses helps to heal the fifth chakra. This can be a challenge, however, for those people with more passive personalities, or those scared of expression for sake of rejection. Lies can also damage this chakra. Unexpressed emotions can be especially hurtful to those with fifth chakra problems (specifically, thyroid disease and throat problems). Singing, chanting, and humming can help clear energy out of the fifth chakra.
Have you ever considered working on your fifth chakra as a complimentary healing modality for your thyroid, voice, or throat problems? Have you had success with it?
