Welcome to Reboot Your Health, Week 3. In this module we’ll share an innovative approach to healing your mind and emotions using phoneme-infused herbs and sounds:
“Happiness is the real nature of your being.” ~ Dr. Pillai
Who doesn’t want to be happy?
If that sounds like a silly question, why do so many of us struggle with sadness, uncontrollable mood swings and stressful thoughts … and why are these negative emotions so damaging?
In a landmark study, researchers from UNC found that negative thoughts and emotions trigger your “survival instinct,” tricking your brain from seeing any options other than fear, anger or stress. Similarly, the study found that when you experience positive emotions like joy, laughter, and love you become more receptive to possibilities and -- better yet – the positive effects of these emotions last long after the feelings subside.Reference: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3156028
An upbeat mindset may be the most important indicator for the health of your body, your relationships, your work and your life. So why is positivity so difficult to practice?
Unfortunately, many of us have trouble producing brain chemicals like serotonin, dopamine and oxytocin that give us the feeling of joy and happiness. If this sounds like you, supplementing your diet with special, phoneme-infused herbs can help:** Step One: Heal your mind and emotions with phoneme-infused Ayurvedic herbs and smart nutrients**
Master Ayurvedic Herb bacopa monnieri
enhances clear thinking, learning and memory. The herb boosts dopamine and serotonin, and has been shown to improve cognition and reduce anxiety. Bacopa detoxifies and decalcifies the 3rd
eye (pineal) chakra, the center for “out of the box” thinking and creativity. Prepare for “aha” moments!
Eclipta alba busts negative thought patterns. Known as a “cognitive enhancer,” Eclipta alba’s powerful antioxidant properties protect the brain and enhance learning and memory. This extraordinary herb also cleanses and illuminates the crown chakra, restoring feelings of joy and purpose in life. When the crown chakra is out of balance you may have obsessive thoughts, feel “stuck in the past” and unable to quiet your mind.
Vinpocetine is a “smart nutrient” that facilitates cerebral metabolism by improving blood flow throughout the brain, thereby increasing cellular energy. Benefits include improved attention, focus and performance and mood stabilization.
