Below we will look at the best 7 detox foods to open your throat chakra and give you ideas to heal from within and feel like YOU again! It might just be balancing your energy flow and chakras with energizing foods. Let’s do this!
First of all, what the heck are Chakras?
Chakras are life energy centers that all connect with the physical body. They form a circuit and the life energy force is constantly flowing through each center or chakra supporting and stimulating the body. It is very important to have balance and nourishment through all of the seven chakras.
There are seven major chakras located along the physical spine. They are all represented by color and name. The base of the spine is the Root Chakra(red), the lower abdomen is Sacral Chakra(orange), the gap between the ribs is Solar Plexus Chakra(yellow), the center of the chest is Heart Chakra(green), the center of the throat is Throat Chakra(pale blue), between the eyebrows, is the Third Eye Chakra(dark blue) and located at the top of the head is the Crown Chakra(purple).
They are all part of an ancient energy system that binds together and brings harmony to the mind, body, and spirit. Chakra is a Sanskrit word from India and means “wheel.” The energy centers are constantly spinning throughout the body from front to back, and as I mentioned above, the physical spine is the connection between all seven chakras.
The Fifth Chakra – The Throat Chakra (Vishuddha)
COLOR: Sky Blue
MANTRA SOUND: HUM
The throat chakra is located at the base of the throat under the voicebox. This spiritual fifth chakra craves creative verbal expression, communication, and speaking our inner truth. This can be accomplished by physical communication, singing, chanting, facial expressions, body language, thoughts, and speaking truth within our hearts.
The fifth chakra has a direct connection to the thyroid. If the throat chakra is not balanced or feels low energy vibrations, you may experience sore throats, throat pain, neck pain, mouth pain, and thyroid deficiencies.
Detox and Balance for Throat Chakra
There are many ways to nourish, replenish, and strengthen the throat chakra. Restoring the voice, communication, and energy vibrations
The throat chakra can be highly affected by past trauma or emotions that cannot be fully expressed outward with speaking. You can literally be blocked for years. I absolutely was!!
Here are some affirmations to use for the fifth chakra to feel into the imbalance, restore, and speak your truth.
I speak my truth clearly from the heart. I hear and speak my truth. I have an important voice, and my voice is heard. I express my gratitude every day with love. I communicate with ease. My voice is clear.

Today, let’s dive in and take a look at a few of the best detox foods to open your throat chakra, gain energy, and feel amazing!!
Throat Chakra Detox Food #1
The whole body antioxidant support and energy you receive from blueberries are the best and at the top of my detox and healing list for the Throat Chakra.
Blueberries are anti-aging and are packed with fiber and vitamins A, C, and Copper. They improve cognitive function, regulate blood sugar, support healthy blood pressure, prevent cancer, and can improve your memory.
We currently have a million blueberries in our garden this summer and they are super juicy and delicious! You need blueberries in your life!
Throat Chakra Detox Food #2
Blackberries are magical! I grow them in my garden and we are getting hundreds! They are rich in many nutrients and taste incredible. They have vitamins A, B, C, and E along with many antioxidants, potassium, magnesium, and calcium.
Blackberries have endless natural anti-aging detox benefits for the skin, hair, body, and optimal health overall. It is insane what this fruit can do. The vitamins and minerals from blackberries improve brain function, helps control diabetes, improves digestion, regulates menstrual health, promote hair growth, and can be used to improve and hydrate skin.
Throat Chakra Detox Food #3
This detox food is the Bees Knees! With the throat chakra, you can become severely imbalanced with inadequate supplies of water or dehydration, and you can have throat issues and setbacks.
The throat needs to be lubricated and hydrated for optimal health, so raw honey is very soothing and gives your throat what it needs naturally. Always purchase local or raw honey from sources you know because it also helps with allergies and respiratory issues having the local bee pollination.
Detox Food #4
Lemons are such a wonderful detox for your body and your throat chakra. Lemons hold so many benefits and some include lowering blood pressure and increased levels of HDL. (the good cholesterol). The flavonoid Limonene found in lemons are anti-inflammatory and help with conditions of allergies, iron deficiencies, rheumatoid arthritis, and celiac disease.
Lemon juice also acts as a natural lightener to the hair and skin which is very nourishing and soothes dry skin. It also protects the immune system and & prevents infection.
Throat Chakra Detox Food #5
Sea Vegetables and Sea Plants
Sea vegetables and sea plants are so nourishing and detoxing for your throat chakra, and your thyroid. Seaweed, seaweed nori wraps, arame, kombu, dulse, wakame, sea lettuce, seaweed salads, sushi, and any other sea plants can bring energizing benefits and balance everything else!
Sea plants and vegetables are great for the thyroid and throat chakra for iodine(which most thyroid deficiencies include lack of iodine), preventing and treating diabetes, helps with weight loss, helps with bone loss, slows cancer growth, and helps with some blood disorders.
I have sushi and sea veggies in my life on the daily, and my absolute favorite is the yummy seaweed snacks. Wasabi flavored of course! YUM!!!

Throat Chakra Detox Food #6
Plums are fantastic and I have loved them for years. They are a great detox food for the throat chakra and have many healing properties. Plums are an anti-aging fruit as well and very rich in B-complex vitamins such as B6, niacin, and pantothenic acid.
Plums also increase the absorption of iron into the body, help stabilize blood sugar levels, and prevent oxygen-based damage to fats in the bloodstream, brain, and cells. WOW! Gimme some plums right now!!
Other tree fruits that are healing and detox the throat chakra are apples, apricots, pears, and peaches.
Throat Chakra Detox Food #7
The “Queen of the Fruits” Purple Grapes (and dark blue) are a great detox for your throat chakra, thyroid, and liver for healing. They are packed with Vitamin A, B1, B2, B6, and C and phytonutrients.
Purple Grapes provide energy, relieve fatigue, help with memory, and stimulate metabolism. Grapes contain 80% water as well so they are perfect to hydrate the throat chakra.

To speak your truth and have healthy creative verbal expression, the fifth chakra must be healthy. Maintaining the correct posture and keeping your throat and mouth lubricated is vital. Foods to avoid include sugar, whole dairy, and all processed foods. Regular yoga practice, stretching, meditation, and releasing your truth journaling exercises are all great daily energizing tools for the throat chakra to thrive.
I hope some of these healing detox foods will balance your throat chakra and help you speak your truth and free your blocks for vocal expression. More blog posts coming on how to balance with meditation, journaling, working with crystals, and using yoga movement to heal the chakras.
