Mesothelioma and Natural Chakra Healing
Posted on 20 June 2017
Although there are numerous traditional medications and treatment plans available for people with mesothelioma, many have turned to alternative forms of treatment, and with great success. Natural chakra healing is a complementary form of energy therapy that is generally used in combination with other treatments.
What is Energy Therapy?
According to the National Center for Complementary and Alternative Medicine (NCCAM), energy therapy is a palliative form of treatment that enhances peace of mind and relaxation. Stress can bring about added fatigue and increase pain associated with mesothelioma, but energy therapy helps to balance the body and reduce stress.
What is Natural Chakra Healing?
Natural chakra healing takes on various forms of treatment, and each type of treatment is intended to heal and cleanse the body’s chakras, which in turn can promote physical, mental, and emotional health. There are seven main chakras within the body. Chakras are our body’s “energy centers” and different types of natural chakra healing that can potentially help patients with mesothelioma battle the debilitating illness. The seven main chakras in the body include:
- The Root Chakra: The base of the spine, near the pelvic floor
- The Heart Chakra: Chest area at heart level
- The Solar Plexus: Between the belly button and solar plexus
- The Sacral Chakra: Pelvic area
- The Throat Chakra: Neck and shoulders region
- The Third-Eye Chakra: Between the eyebrows and behind the forehead
- The Crown Chakra: Crown of the head
One of the most basic yet beneficial forms of chakra healing is massage. Massages can release stress in all areas of the body, including the back, neck, limbs, abdomen, jaw, and more. Different massage techniques can be used to focus on specific areas. For example, applying oils to the stomach area and massaging in a clockwise motion can be beneficial for people with peritoneal mesothelioma.
Chakra Stones, Healing Crystals
Chakra stones, also known as healing crystals, contain unique colors and vibrations that can help promote wellness in the damaged body part. For instance, people with pleural mesothelioma have cancer along the lining of their lungs. Chakra stones such as Rose Quartz are used to help promote energy in the chest and lung area, while Smoky Quartz is used to promote healing and detoxify the body after cancer treatment such as chemotherapy and radiation therapy.
To help release stress and reduce depression, Amethyst is said to have strong mental and emotional healing properties, while Citrine and Sunstone can help boost energy levels.
Sounds and Healing
Music is a powerful way to help the body relax, while at the same time, de-stress and boost cleansing in the chakras. Trained music therapists are professionals who can tailor sound based on the patient’s diagnosis, musical preference, and needs.
According to the American Cancer Society (ACS), music/sound therapy can reduce nausea and vomiting in chemotherapy patients. It can also help reduce breathing rate, high blood pressure, and ease depression.
Many people believe that essential oils are an “essential” part of chakra healing. Although essential oils are typically used in conjunction with massages, some oils can be used as a dietary supplement, as well as a form of aromatherapy.
Common oils used to heal the chakras include:
- Blue Chamomile
- Gotu Kola
Important Things to Remember
Although numerous studies and years of research have shown the positive benefits that cancer patients can potentially have with alternative medicine and natural chakra healing, it still is not considered a replacement for traditional medicine. It’s important to speak with your physician if you have any questions, especially before ingesting essential oils.
