Hormones are responsible for the body’s functions. They are associated with many aspects of our body which includes physical aspects and mental or emotional aspects as well. Modern day practitioners like to relate chakras with the endocrine system of the body which is responsible for the release of hormones that regulate many functions including growth and maturation, metabolism, tissue function and also mood.
