Have you ever heard of the term "eat your chakras?" In a nutshell, it means eating with the colors of the rainbow. This requires incorporating more live & colorful foods into your diet, as they coincide with the colors of your Aritu. Colors carry a frequency & this alone + consuming live foods can help raise your vibratpry frequency. If you look at the shapes of fruits & veggies, you can see the resemblance of your organs. This is no coincidence. All is connected. Detoxing and or fasting helps you strengthen yout spiritual connection + your connection to all of the elements. No matter the season, it is always a divine time to tap into all 4 elements:
RA [sun], Shu [Air], Tefnut [moisture/water], Geb [grounding].
Detoxing and fasting is also implemented to help develop many levels of discipline. All is mind. Sometimes we think we are hungry, but the truth is, we may be dehydrated. Other times, we are allowing our bodies to control our mind, which our mind should always control our bodies. We have to build discipline in order for spirit to get through to us, for us to experience spiritual growth, to be light beings. We should not feel heavy all the time. That could indicate spiritual, physical and emotional baggage created by an unhealthy mental patterns.
The word Aritu is a Kemetic word which is used to describe the kara kasa or chakras because it means "wheel". These sacred energy centers are said to swirl in a circular motion very quickly & are seen as small wheels within us. The word chakra is derived from the Kemetic word kara, meaning shrine, karkar means cylinder & thesu/kasu, which means knots. These energy centers connect us to the higher forces & are aspects of the Higher Forces within us. They are also connected to the planets & days of the week, as well as give, receive and store energy. It is at these points where energy is exchanged. If our life force is low on energy there is not much to be used & dis- ease begins in the physical. A imbalances are created mentally and emotionally before they manifest in the physical body. With consistency, juicing is sure to help you release all that does not serve you so that your Aritu are Maatic instead of chaotic.

The Endocrine System is made up of glands; the pineal, pituitary gland, thyroid, adrenal, pancreas, thyroid, parathyroid, ovaries, and testicles. These glands produce, store, and release hormones. Hormones are chemicals that serve as a form of communication within the body. The Endocrine System triggers the glands to release hormones into the bloodstream, which distributes the hormones throughout the body. These hormones are critical to our survival; they help maintain homeostasis, which includes regulating blood pressure, blood sugar, sex hormones, digestive enzymes, stress response, and more. Keeping the glands functioning well is key to overall health and quality of life. The pituitary gland is known as the master gland. It controls all other glands in The Endocrine System. A special part of the brain called the hypothalamus controls the pituitary gland, so the Endocrine System is actually under the control of the nervous system. Hormones controlled by the Endocrine System control the function of the many organs and body systems, including the skin, kidney, stomach, liver, pancreas, reproductive system, and heart. Essential oils can be used to support the endocrine system and promote balance and homeostasis. Here are a few additional resources to help you balance your systems:
