"Chakra Foods for Optimum Health is a "roll up your sleeve" self help book. Describing in detail, techniques that Dr. Minich has used successfully to assist her patients in rebalancing their chakra centers, overcome obstacles to health, regain energy, creativity, and find new meaning in their lives. Her Chakra questionnaire is a tremendous asset assisting you in pinpointing areas of dysfunction and imbalance. She expertly takes you through each of the seven chakra centers discussing in detail food and eating healing plans, simple affirmations that make a big difference, imaginative activities you can easily do to help rebalance your chakras, and a specific eating plan to support energy flow through each chakra. At the end of the book are countless tasty recipes to help you enjoy healthy variations of familiar foods and explore new flavors and sensations. - Jacob Kornberg, MD, FACS

Not a diet book, it looks at both the nutritional and spiritual aspects of the foods we eat and how they can heal us.

With lots of useful sidebars, this book offers a treasure trove of energy medicine in teh form of food - truly food for the body, mind, and soul!

One thing that most books like this (I dislike putting things into categories but I will go ahead and say it anyway--'new agey') disappoint me in is that by their very intention of putting such information into factual little boxes they contradict the true nature of such information, which is fluidity and self-discovery. I guess, in other words, by trying to look directly at the star it fades from sight
for example, phrases like "work with yourself to develop playfulness"
maybe it's just me, but i experience these types of sayings as contraindications. Nevertheless, a book that tries to say what can't be said (which 99.99 percent of self-help books do) will by their nature be full of paradoxes. So is it fair to judge this book only against other books, or against what I would wish to read?
That said, I suppose it will depend on the reader
--So, I had originally given this book a 3 star rating, but upon reflection this seems a bit unfair, because in the category of books that it falls into it should probably be a 4 to a 5. I think I have just been expecting something that is unlikely to come along, which is probably a book written by someone like-minded. Anyway, looking at it as something written for people who are just getting introduced to these ideas, it is actually a fabulous book, because she is a very sensitive writer who is good with clarity. Her passion and wisdom on the subject shine through, and she is neither imposing nor boring on anything. I had originally thought it deserved a lower rating because every now and then one of the ideas she presents has flawed or incomplete reasoning behind it, but hey, what book doesn't nowadays? I guess it's just up to the reader to do proper research.
simply - reading this book will definitely change your approach to the "process of eating" itself...it will change your opinion about the food completely....you will finally understand, that food is something, that is not just the way, how to receive the energy, but also one of the ways, how to HEAL yourself.....
YOU REALLY NEED TO HAVE THIS BOOK IN YOUR LIBRARY!!!!!!:):):):):):)
I feel badly for my 2 star review and am upping it to 4. The print is small for my liking but that shouldn't be a reason for 2 stars. If you are interested in chakra's then this is a cool book to review- in regards to how one eats. Is there even anything else on the market that touches on this subject? For that alone this is something to be read and reviewed. My apologies to the author, for the initial low review.
I highly recommend this book for anyone who is looking to enrich their understanding of how foods nourish and heal the body.
