|Pomegranates - More Than Just Antioxidant Rich!|
Recently I came across thus great article on one of my favorite fruits - the pomegranate. Combine it with the info I heard on Dr. Oz yesterday about these gems of the fruit world, and they just may be a perfect solution for hormonal imbalances at any age . . .
Yesterday's Dr. Oz show explored the ancient Tibetan forms of healing, including the 7 chakras. For those of you who are unfamiliar with this system, it is believed that there are 7 energy wheels in the body that must be in balance to achieve optimal health.
According to this theory, the root chakra, located at the base of the base of the spine or coccyx is the energy center responsible for our vigor, survival, security, passion and sense of self. The color associated with the root chakra is red.
Interestingly enough the organs this energy center is associated with are the large intestine and organs of reproduction.
In this system of healing, deep red foods are energetically supportive of the chakra. Traditionally, one of the favorite foods to balance this chakra are pomegranates!
Is this a case of coincidence or ancient wisdom?
