Mesothelioma and Natural Chakra Healing
Although mesothelioma patients have several options for traditional treatments and medications, many turn to alternative options with some success. Natural chakra healing is a complementary form of energy therapy 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 treatment that enhances peace of mind and relaxation. The stress of dealing with cancer can increase the fatigue and pain associated with mesothelioma. Energy therapy helps balance the body and reduce stress.
What is Natural Chakra Healing?
Natural chakra healing is intended to heal and cleanse the body’s chakras to promote physical, mental, and emotional health. Chakras are the body’s “energy centers.” Different types of natural chakra healing may help patients with mesothelioma battle the debilitating illness. There are seven main chakras within the body.
- The Root Chakra: The base of the spine, near the pelvic floor
- The Sacral Chakra: Pelvic area
- The Solar Plexus: Between the belly button and solar plexus
- The Heart Chakra: Chest area at heart level
- 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
Massage is a basic and beneficial form of chakra healing. Practitioners use massage to release muscle tension and stress all over the body, including the back, neck, limbs, abdomen and jaw. Different massage techniques focus on specific areas. For example, massaging the stomach area in a clockwise motion can help people with peritoneal mesothelioma.
Chakra Stones, Healing Crystals
Chakra stones, or healing crystals, contain unique colors and vibrations thought to promote wellness in a damaged body part. Pleural mesothelioma patients have cancer along the lining of their lungs. Chakra stones like rose quartz is believed to promote healing energy in the chest and lung area. Smoky quartz is used to promote healing and detoxify the body after cancer treatments like chemotherapy and radiation therapy. Practitioners believe amethyst has strong mental and emotional healing properties, while citrine and sunstone boost energy levels.
Sounds and Healing
Music has powerful relaxation properties and can reduce 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. Therapists then use sound and music to promote healing.
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, lower blood pressure, and ease depression.
Many people believe essential oils are an “essential” part of chakra healing. While essential oils are often used in conjunction with massage, some can also be used as a dietary supplement. Aromatherapy also uses essential oils.
Common oils used to heal the chakras include:
- Blue Chamomile
- Gotu Kola
Note: Do not use these oils before consulting with your medical team and a licensed aromatherapy practitioner.
Important Things to Remember
Years of research have shown the positive benefits of alternative medicine and chakra healing for cancer patients. However, it is not a replacement for traditional medical treatment. Always speak with your physician if you have questions regarding any form of chakra healing. This is especially important before ingesting essential oils.
