Chakra Foods for Optimum Health: A Guide to the Foods That Can Improve Your Energy, Inspire Creative Changes, Open Your Heart, and Heal Body, Mind, and Spirit
Nutritionist and yoga practitioner Deanna Minich's Chakra Foods provides information on how to heal emotional and physical woes through making the right food choices. The material for this book developed out of the author's highly successful "Nutrition for the Soul" classes, workshops, and private counseling sessions. Not a diet book, it looks at both the nutritional and spiritual aspects of the foods we eat and how they can heal us. For example, someone feeling stuck in their lives could turn to chapter 5 and find a list of orange foods -- apricots, carrots, salmon, pumpkin, oranges -- to help their sacral chakra. For each chakra, specific affirmations and other practices are also offered, as are meal plans and recipes. Helpful lists, charts, and diagrams help readers easily pinpoint and diagnose themselves and the various prescriptive options are all very clearly explained. With lots of useful sidebars, this book really is a treasure trove of energy medicine in the form of food -- truly food for the body, mind, and soul!
* Looks at the energetics of what and how we eat and how to rebalance through healthier choices.
* Easy to implement and stick with plan.

"Chakra Foods For Optimum Health" integrates modern, Western nutrition science with ancient Eastern yogic knowledge and wisdom. It provides the best introduction to the chakras that I have read (and I've read a lot of them), and an explanation of how to eat for the chakras that is very easy to digest and internalize. The author presents this material in a very well-written and intuitive package. I recommend this book very highly for anyone who wants to add dimension to their understanding of the chakras, or who wants to expand their awareness of how foods affect them."
Interesting New Perspective
By Sean O'Kelly "cubs fan" - June 17, 2009
This book provides an interesting new perspective on the connection between nutritional science and spirituality. Essentially, it synthesizes eastern and western thought in a very understandable, concise way. Readers will learn how the body's energy centers, or chakras, contribute to the physical, emotional, and spiritual well being of each person. And, how the food you eat can diminish, maintain, or improve the resonance of the chakras. The book also provides plenty of dietary guidelines and tasty recipes that help readers make real changes. I highly recommend it.
Craving Chakra Foods Knowledge
By Jill Daniel "EmpoweredMom" - June 12, 2009
Until I read this book, I never thought about the HOW of eating, only the WHAT. Deanna points to the equal importance and the studies behind who we're eating with and how the meal takes place. For example, she cites a study published in the New England Journal of Medicine from Drs. Christakis and Fowler. They demonstrated that patterns of body weight gain were directly connected to our social networks. What does that mean? The greater the connection an individual has with obese friends and family (even if miles apart), the larger the influence on he or she developing obesity. If you're emotionally close with overweight people, there is also a higher chance of you becoming obese. As a mom, this makes me thing about being in great shape for my kid's healthy future and my own too! This is only one of many amazing insights and studies presented in Chakra Foods. It will have you thinking about food in a whole new way, an empowering way.
