Thank you to Simona Stepancic, RHN, ROHP, for this article on healing with yellow food.
Food carries a vibration, and the colour of the food corresponds to an energy center or chakra in the body. A chakra is a link between energy and the physical body.
The yellow colour chakra is the solar plexus chakra located between the navel and the heart. Associated organs are the stomach, spleen, skin, pancreas, liver, and gallbladder.
Feed your solar plexus chakra with yellow food: bananas, lemons, pineapples, grapefruits, yellow peppers, parsnips, and cinnamon.
Pineapple contains the protein-digesting enzyme bromelain, which is a powerful anti-inflammatory agent. Banana is soothing for the stomach, and helps balance intestinal flora. Cinammon is a digestive tonic; it relieves gas and balances blood sugar.
Yellow is the colour of the sun and is the colour of happiness and cheerfulness.
Eating yellow food will help you focus, and aids in concentration.
