  1. So interesting: thyroid, respiratory system, teeth, vocal chords — I believe I have a thyroid condition, struggled with asthma, have beautiful (but weak teeth) and took voice lessons but struggle because of the crazy tension I carry in my throat. Never once thought about caring for my chakra. So excited to try some of this!

  2. Wow interesting chakra. I thought it is just on animes. Well not so familiar with it but having this knowledge will let you control your emotion and be mentally and emotionally prepared.

  3. Wow, This is very educational. I have wanted to learn about the Chakra and healing stones. I think I need to learn more about the throat Chakra, I know Thyroid problems run in my famil.
