Throat Issues

The throat lies at the fifth chakra in the body. Energetically, this relates to our control center. It also relates to our ability to not only speak our truth but how our actions follow that which we say. In other words, as spiritual beings, we must not only speak our truth but live our truth day to day. The throat area can also signify a Beech personality out of balance. When I feel I am not in control of something or want to try to control something that is not mine to control, laryngitis has been a physical manifestation of this imbalance. As a Beech personality type, I become intolerant of not being able to control certain situations. The truth is, however, that none of us control anything, and my greatest lesson in this lifetime is to learn surrender, which is something I try to practice on a daily basis.

So when we are not speaking our truth or not living our truth, we may not be able to speak at all. Physical manifestations are language for us to look at an imbalance within ourselves.
For those who continuously manifest swollen glands in the throat area, remember that the glands are actually within the lymphatic system. If the lymphatic system is impaired, it represents someone who is holding on to the emotion of hate. As it is manifesting in the throat area, it is significant to begin to ask yourself if there is some issue that you hate because you cannot control it. Or you might have to ask if you are allowing someone to control you and you are hating it.

Another issue could be that there is something you are holding in your system that you hate and have not addressed. Hate does not have to be directed toward another person, although often times it may be. We can learn to hate our jobs, hate where we live, hate our financial status…. Hate comes in many shapes and sizes, but it is truly an unacceptable emotion to the spiritual being.

For teenagers who are manifesting mononucleosis (which will usually create one swollen gland), this imbalance is speaking to "hating being controlled by another" (usually parents who want to control their children). The tissue salt Silicea may be helpful to cleanse and eliminate. Silicea is used when there is pus formation, of which a swollen gland can speak loud and clear about that. Red Clover-Stillingia Compound by Herb Pharm is helpful in cleansing the lymphatic system.  Yellowdock Root is another lymphatic cleanser that can be helpful.

A sore throat that has not manifested as swollen glands is an indication of anger over control issues. Remember that anger manifests as pain, rash or infection.

As Beech is an anger flower and the throat is our Beech area, Beech just may be the right flower to take to help the problem. The Beech flower is for intolerance, easily irritated, critical and judgmental personality. And sometimes, it is ourselves that we hold this imbalance against. I find that if my throat is dry and hoarse with sneezing spells, the tissue salt Natrum Mur may help tremendously.

If the problem comes from not speaking your truth and stuffing your feelings, the flower essence Agrimony may be the proper choice as the Agrimony personality has a hard time speaking their truth so as to avoid confrontation.

If the throat is burning and red, the tissue salt Ferrum Phosphate may be very helpful. It is the tissue salt for burning and red inflammatory pain with high temperatures.

This article is exactly what I needed to know for my Mother. I am visiting her next week because she has throat issues and your analogy of mental issues is exactly right. Thank you so much.

Good day to you Ms. Linda,
Your blog is a treasure chest of invaluable information to me and many others looking to heal through ways other than Western medicine and pharmaceutical drugs. Thank you.
Ayurveda, Traditional Chinese Medicine and Homeopathy are other options too, yet flower remedies and herbs and tissue salts seem more gentle, soothing, calming and less violent in the process of healing, especially after the body was treated so harshly.Thank you once again.
Here is a request to you to write about 1) the Thyroid and and how to bring balance.2)Hair fall, premature graying and baldness.
Looking forward to read more posts on this blog.
