Have you ever wondered how the chakras relate to our physical, emotional, and mental health? When it comes to our physical body, the chakras directly correlate with our endocrine system!
The endocrine system is a system of glands found in the body that controls hormone production and regulation. Each gland emits hormones in to the body’s bloodstream which plays a significant role in how our body functions. If a gland is imbalanced, it can have major repercussions including secretion of excessive stress hormones or inhibiting the body’s ability to metabolize nutrients. The practice of yoga and meditation is pertinent to maintaining balanced endocrine system and directly effects our physical and psychological wellness. The endocrine system and chakras also have a close connection in the way that each chakra resonates with a different endocrine gland, which can all be maintained and balanced through the practice of yoga and meditation.
