Healing with Red Food

Thank you to Simona Stepancic, RHN, ROHP, for this article on healing with red 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 red colour chakra is located at the base of the spine and is a basic survival center in the body. Associated organs are adrenal glands, kidneys, bladder, legs and feet.

Feed your root chakra with red food:  beets, red peppers, red radishes, tomatoes, red apples, strawberries, cherries, red grapes, and raspberries.

Red food contains high amounts of vitamin C, which strengthens the adrenals, colon, connective tissues and artery walls. Eating red food is also beneficial for people who have back pain, poor circulation, poor blood, and anaemia.

Red food will give you confidence and well-being. If you are tired, cold, depressed, and have little energy, then you are probably missing red from your food.
