This chapter is based on the fifth chakra, vissudha which means purification. This detoxification process needs to take place in order to rid our bodies of the toxins within it. This purifying system focuses on strengthening two areas within our bodies; the throat and the thyroid.

The throat is the narrowest passage within the whole chakra system and it is a bottleneck for our energy systems to flow freely. It also acts as a filter system, sorting through messages from the body and connecting them with information in the brain. We can release and free up this passage by eating and cooking soothing foods for our throats such as warming soups, restorative tea and moist fruits.

The thyroid is the other major organ in this chakra, it is responsible for determining our growth and developing tissues for our body, but most importantly, in adult life the thyroid regulates our temperature and our metabolism. Foods rich in iodine, such as sea plants, feature in this chapter because the cells in the thyroid are the only ones that can absorb iodine.

The fifth chakra is where our individual creative expression is at its highest. This selfexpression becomes the means for relaying to the outer world what is really inside us.
