Healing with Green Food

Thank you to Simona Stepancic, RHN, ROHP, for this article on healing with green 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 green colour chakra is the heart chakra, located at the heart.  Associated organs are the heart, hands, arms, and thymus gland.

Feed your heart chakra with green food:  avocado, broccoli, celery, kiwi, asparagus, cucumbers, lettuce, parsley, peas, zucchini, and green grapes.

Avocado, rich in B’s, beta carotene, and potassium, nourishes the blood and nervous system and prevents constipation. Broccoli, rich in beta carotene, B’s, vitamin C, zinc, fiber, calcium, and sulfur, is one of the best detox superfoods.  As it helps prevent high blood pressure, it is very good for the heart and cardiovascular system.  Celery, containing vitamin C, potassium, magnesium, fiber and beta carotene, helps neutralize acids in the body, and prevents constipation, high blood pressure and nervousness.

Green food is good for the heart on a physical and emotional level. It is exceptionally purifying, cleansing and rejuvenating. Eating green food will improve memory, allergies, and the immune system.
