Just imagine being able to look in the mirror without the shame and judgmental comments you throw at yourself each day…
Imagine not constantly falling off track finding yourself mindlessly devouring an entire packet of biscuits, crisps or chocolates without even realising it after a long day at work or looking after the kids….
Imagine the fulfillment you’d have if you cooked healthy meals for yourself each day and never over indulged whenever temptations were presented….
And imagine finding yourself in a healthy stable routine with exercise whether that be going to the gym, working out from home or discovering a fun invigorating rhythm with a daily yoga practice.
But the problem most people have is they find themselves consistently falling off track with their commitments to diet and exercise…
Leading to what seems like a never ending battle with food and their body’s.
While most people believe that finding the right diet or exercise program is the answer to ending this ongoing battle…
In our experience working with hundreds of people at the IGo Yoga studio we often find that dietary choices and exercise are in fact not the solution to making healthy changes and finding peace with your body
The real problem lies in an energetic imbalance most people have within what’s known as their root chakra.
The chakras are energy centres that lie within the subtle body which govern the flow of energy that comes in and out of your life.
The root chakra is the first of 7 chakras and each one is responsible for how we feel, how we act and the quality of how we live our lives.
The root chakra in particular is responsible for our ability to feel safe, secure, independent and grounded within our lives… it’s located at the base of the spine and is associated with the colour red.
A balanced root chakra will show up in someone’s life as one who takes personal responsibility for themselves from moment to moment when it comes to their health, relationships, career and even finances.
An imbalanced root chakra shows up in someone’s life as one who is struggling with one or more aspects of their life leading to the mental, emotional and sometimes physical pressures piling up to the point they’re struggling meeting the demands life is presenting them.
In other words…
An unbalanced root chakra leads to someone struggling to manage the amount of stress they’re facing in life.
This is exactly why people struggle with food and their body so let us explain…
You see, no matter what type of stress you face in life the body will always react in the same way.
It will activate the adrenal glands located just above your kidneys which are responsible for the release of stress hormones known as the body’s fight or flight response.
Meaning the body is preparing to literally run for its life or fight to the death.
Now in a modern world it’s very rare we’d have to run or fight for our life in any situation but the body doesn’t know that… to the body, Stress is stress but the real problem comes with staying in this state of stress for prolonged periods of time…
So the questions are…. “why and how does this cause you to constantly struggle with food and your body?”
Well, the answer is simple.
We live in a time where food is readily available in abundance and majority of that food is very tasty because of all the added sugar, additives and preservatives.
When your root chakra is imbalanced and the stress in your life in piling up… it’s easy to turn to these unhealthy foods to numb the mental, emotional and physical pressures in life and find joy in the moment with these unhealthy foods.
Although the experience elevates the stress you’re facing in the moment because bad foods taste oh so good it actually adds more stress to your system in more than one way…
The first being the food is unhealthy and doesn’t do any favours for your digestion and the second is it causes you to create an unhealthy relationship with food and your body leading to even more stress.
This is one of the main reasons why people who find they lose weight when starting new diet and exercise programs find themselves constantly falling off track and putting the weight back on.
So while most people are fixated on constantly jumping from diet to diet or stopping and starting the gym…
They miss the underlying reason that’s causing the constant struggle with food and their body’s.
So if the demands of life are starting to take their toll on you causing you to reach for the wrong foods that do not serve you then it’s likely you have an energetic imbalance with your root chakra like most people unknowingly have.
