Chakra healing is a method for healing physical illnesses through “aligning” or “balancing” one’s chakras. While many mainstream physicians consider chakra healing to be pseudoscience, millions of people around the globe consider it to be a legitimate method for healing the body.

Some even consider it a superior alternative to mainstream medicine. Advocates of chakra healing claim that the method is simply an unexplored scientific reality; one which can’t yet be measured or detected by our modern instruments or understood by our limited understanding of the human body and the human mind.
But is chakra healing just an ancient superstition or is it truly an unexplored scientific frontier?
Chakra Healing and Its New Place in Mainstream Science
Everything that’s now an accepted part of mainstream science was once unexplored, rejected or misunderstood. Considering some scientific discoveries of the past few decades, it’s quite likely that chakra healing is not just an ancient superstition, but a soon to be validated scientific truth.
Even mainstream scientists now agree that everything in the universe, including your physical body, is made up of energy. The rate at which energy vibrates determines its form: solid, liquid or gas. Your body, therefore, is nothing more than a field of energy. The field of energy which makes up your being is sometimes referred to as your “biofield.”
A Chakra is simply a concentrated field, or vortex, of energy within the larger biofield which makes up your physical body. Recent scientific discoveries have revealed that these concentrations of energy which for centuries have been called Chakras, are a real physical phenomenon…
Scientific Validation for Chakra Healing?
For decades, neuroscientist Dr. Candace Pert has been studying the impact of a person’s vibrational state on their physical and emotional well-being. Dr. Pert has found that the emotions are nothing more than the mind’s interpretation of your body’s vibrational state. This vibrational state is caused by neurotransmitters (or what Pert calls “Molecules of emotion”) being transferred between the cells of your body.
Shortly after making these discoveries about neurotransmitters, Candance Pert was surprised to discover that these same “molecules of emotion” were stored in large concentrations within the body. All of these concentrations of neurotransmitters were in the same places as the seven ancient Chakras.
Candace Pert’s experiments and research in the field of neuroscience now suggest that disease is caused by energy imbalances or blockages which inhibit the transference of these molecules of emotion.
“My research has shown me that when emotions are expressed–which is to say that the biochemicals that are the substrate of emotion are flowing freely–all systems are united and made whole. When emotions are repressed, denied, not allowed to be whatever they may be, our network pathways get blocked, stopping the flow of the vital feel-good, unifying chemicals that run both our biology and our behavior.”
This quote clearly describes how a person’s emotional state determines the state of their physical body and that it has a direct impact on their emotional well being. In other words, when the “chakras” are out of balance, this imbalance has a direct effect on a person’s physical well-being.
Chakra Healing and Its Link to Modern Medicine
The practice of Chakra healing involves methods such as prayer, meditation, honest expression of emotional states and other methods which promote emotional well being. Since Dr. Pert’s discoveries have revealed that a person’s emotional state is a condition of their physical body, this means that what has long been called chakra healing has a similar or identical goal to that of mainstream psychology and psychiatry.
Chakra healing affects positive changes in the physical body through methods which promote emotional and physical well being. Meanwhile, modern physicians, psychologists and psychiatrists also agree that a person’s emotional well-being directly impacts their physical well being.
Chakra Healing as an Alternative to Modern Medicine
The exploding popularity of expensive prescription medications is causing more and more people to seek out safer, less expensive and more natural alternatives to heal and to prevent disease. Chakra healing is one of these alternatives, and contrary to what some skeptics might believe, it’s could turn out to be more practical than a lot of practices of modern medicine.
Just because a medical practice is modern or popular doesn’t make it safe or even effective. Bloodletting was used for a long time to treat many terminal and non-terminal illnesses. Full frontal lobotomies were once used to treat depression. Heroine was used for a time as a cough suppressant. There have been electronic belts for healing erectile dysfunction and mercury was once considered a good medicine for healing fevers and STDs such as syphilis.
Likewise many popular, prescription drugs cause dangerous side effects and often even create the need for additional drugs in order to treat those side effects.
While it might never be called chakra healing by mainstream scientists, it’s likely that the treating of disease through the balancing or one’s emotional energy will prove to be a much superior alternative to the currently embraced methods of treating disease.
