The word chakra in San­skrit means “to wheel.” In Ayurveda, this term re­lates to the wheels of en­ergy within our bod­ies—from the bases of our spines to the tops of our heads. Each chakra re­lates to spe­cific emo­tional and men­tal char­ac­ter­is­tics and can ex­pe­ri­ence ei­ther ex­cess or de­fi­ciency, sim­i­lar to the doshas. We can use foods, along with life­style prac­tices, to bring our chakras back into bal­ance.
