Your root chakra is the energy point of your body that keeps you feeling safe, helps you feel grounded, and gives you an air of security. Located at the base of the spine, this swirling point of energy roots you to the earth and empowers you to see life from its most realistic point of view.
How do I know if my root chakra needs healing or chakra balancing?
Your Muladhara, or root chakra, needs healing if you notice:
- Chronic lower back pain
- Constant bladder infections
- Circulatory issues
- Reproductive health issues
- Easily distracted
- Waves of depression or anxiety
- Lack of self-esteem
- Increased laziness
- Increased fear and insecurity
- Feelings of abandonment or loneliness
These signs and experiences mean that your chakra is out of balance or blocked. You need to add energy work, spiritual healing, specific crystals, or specific foods to your physical body to balance your chakra system.
What foods can I eat to balance my root chakra?
As a rule of thumb, foods that are colored red or orange will activate and empower your root chakra. Here are our favorite foods that bring balance to your mind, body, and spirit.
1. Root vegetables
It’s no coincidence that foods that grow deep in the ground would help us connect to the ground, itself. Root vegetables and rhizomes immediately ground us and grant us the healing powers of Earth. Next time you’re feeling low or have sciatica pain, eat or drink:
- Dandelion Root Tea
2. Hot Peppers
Firey and often red, spicy peppers immediately pull us back into the physical space and help us become aware of our physical bodies. The spice of peppers is what gives us an energizing zap while grounding any excess energies. Try:
- Sweet Red Cherry Peppers
- Red Jalapenos
- Hatch Peppers
3. Red Meats
Anything colored red immediately energizes our root chakra. Red meats have an extra form of energy to help us ground since they contain lots of iron and protein. So, if you’re feeling lethargic, try:
Protein and basic vitamins and minerals strengthen the root chakra, and eggs contain the most complete types of proteins and vitamins. So, an easy way to charge your root chakra is to eat:
- Chicken Eggs
- Quail Eggs
5. High-Protein Foods
Vegans can also charge and balance their root chakra, even though meat and eggs are not part of their diets. If you’re Vegan, try balancing your Muladhara with:
- Peanut Butter
- Sunflower Seeds
- Cacao Nibs
6. Red foods
The easiest way to balance and restore your root chakra is to eat foods that are naturally red. Red foods that heal the root chakra include:
- Sweet or tart cherries
