Relationships between chakras and endocrine glands.

Chakras interact with the physical body through two major vehicles, the endocrine system, and the nervous system. Each of the seven chakras is associated with one of the seven endocrine glands.

Each of the  Chakra s  or has control or  is responsible for  particular areas  of your  body.  The endocrine  system  includes a  number  of  ductless  glands that  produce  the  hormones,  acting  as chemical messengers, that are secreted into the bloodstream from particular organs to stimulate or inhibit physical  processes.  by  adjusting  the  hormone  levels,  the  endocrine  system  works  to maintain  the body  in  a  state of  optimum health.  The  Chakras are  linked  with  the  glands responsible for creating the hormones. Unsurprisingly, the positions of the Chakra s, correspond to the positions of the glands in the endocrine system and have an effect on their functioning. The link between the  Chakra s  and   the glands emphasises   the  holistic  nature of  health  and demonstrates that you need to maintain a balance in your emotional and mental activities as well as your physical diet and exercise, as they are all deeply interrelated.
