Chakras are energy centers in your body. Dr. Christiane Northrup talks in detail about each of the seven chakras.
She says that healing and health in your body is significantly influenced by what you think, and feel and believe. And she goes on to say that what you have learned in and from your family will also leave a big imprint on your health.
Studying the chakras is one way of looking within, and bringing about change for the better in your life.
Dr. Northrup links each chakra with its corresponding organs, attributes, and spiritual and emotional states. She also details the physical disorders that would be associated with each chakra as well.
"Understanding how energy works in your body can help you decipher your individual body’s unique language. The chakras are the energy centers in the physical body where your beliefs and emotions are transformed into your state of health."
