“When you meditate, you balance the nervous system so that the “fight or flight” response is activated less frequently. As a result, you become less likely to act out maladaptive behavior in response to stress. So you might stop overeating or drinking to soothe yourself. Meditation provides a buffer against stress and that has a ripple effect that you experience throughout the day.”
Each chakra has a corresponding gland. When we balance the energy here, we balance the functioning of the endocrine system and it’s many valuable processes.
