The thyroid is located in the Fifth Chakra area and is sacred because it had the job of holding and metabolizing many things including information from the other chakras as well as environmental toxins . Toxins can wreck havoc on the thyroid. The environmental toxin PBDEs (polybrominated diphenyl ethers), is commonly used as a flame retardant and can be found in everything from carpets to electronics to perhaps the sofa you are sitting on. Although thyroid cancer isn’t common in the United States, rates seem to be increasing. However, doctors have new technology that allow them to find small thyroid cancers much more easily than in the past.

Working with the Chakras helps to balance the body’s energies because it stimulates fresh energy into the body and moves out stagnant energies. The Chakras service the organs, muscles, ligaments, veins, and other body parts that sit in their fields. The basic function of each is to work as a clearing house for physiological, psychological, and spiritual information coming in or out of the body’s field. Chakra work often unblocks energetic and emotional energies. Working them may cause emotions, imagery, memories, or sensations to rise up. Energy Medicine helps with clearing and balancing Chakra energy in a soft and gently way.
