Healing with Blue Food

Thank you to Simona Stepancic, RHN, ROHP, for this article on healing with blue 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 blue colour chakra is the throat chakra located in the throat at the base of the neck.  Associated organs are the throat, thyroid, and ears.

Feed your throat chakra with blue food:  blueberries, bilberries, blue grapes, seaweed, kelp, and blue cabbage.

Blue food is rich in flavonoids, and has cooling, soothing, relaxing and calming effects on the body.  Blueberries lower cholesterol, cleanse the kidneys and help with circulation. Kelp contains iodine, which helps with thyroid function.

Blue lowers blood pressure, helps people with respiratory problems, is anti-inflammatory, and antiseptic. It is one of the most healing colours for children.

Blue food can be used to awaken intuition, and help ease loneliness.
