For the past 100 years, IQ has been widely touted as a predictor of financial success. In recent years, however, scientists have found other psychological qualities that do a much better job.
According to research, they are emotional intelligence and resilience. (Note: You may have heard about the COO of Facebook, Sheryl Sandberg’s book, “Option B”, about resilience)
Emotional intelligence and resilience can be passed through genes. They are also skills that can be learned and enhanced with Siddha herbs. Nambu Botanicals has chosen particular herbs because of their ability to enhance emotional intelligence and resilience. Our “chosen” herbs have the quantum ability to absorb intelligence from sound. We’ll have more on that later. Here, we’re going to focus mainly on resilience.
Resilience is the ability to adapt well to adversity and stressful conditions, including trauma. Resilient people have a way of bouncing back after failures and remaining calm in hostile or high-pressure situations.
Did you know that Frank Herbert’s sci-fi novel, Dune, was rejected 23 times by publishers? That was one more rejection than James Joyce’s Dubliners and three less times than A Wrinkle in Time. This is all nothing compared to Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance, which was rejected 121 times!
All of these people had the ability to bounce back after failure and learn from that failure. All of them became legendary authors because of resilience.
Resilience doesn’t just help you become successful financially. It’s a great skill that makes you more successful in every area of life, including relationships and spirituality.
Scientific research has identified some physiological qualities of the brain and hormonal systems that contribute to resilience.
Resilient people don’t let their bloodstreams get flooded with the stress hormone, cortisol. After cortisol is released by the adrenals in response to stress, they tend to use it up by responding well to the “threat” and shut down the production of cortisol when it’s no longer needed.
High Prefrontal Cortex Activity
The prefrontal cortex is associated with cognitive activity, but that’s not its only job. If well-developed, it can calm the amygdala, an important part of the brain for the fight or flight response.
The amygdala processes raw emotions related to perceived threats. When it’s properly regulated by the prefrontal cortex, you can deal with threats more rationally and distinguish between real and imagined threats. You will also recover more easily from negative emotions.
People with Post-traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), when reminded of traumatic events, will show inhibited prefrontal cortex activity and overactive amygdala activity. (1)
Furthermore, people who experience severe trauma without showing signs of PTSD generally have a healthy prefrontal cortex. They also have efficient communication between the anterior cingulate cortex (ACC), which is part of the prefrontal cortex, and the hippocampus. The hippocampus is responsible for memory, emotion and the processing of emotional memories. (2)(3)
These are just some of the physiological processes involved in resilience.
Research shows that memory tonic Bacopa changes the structure of the cells in the amygdala in rats by increasing dendrite length and the number of dendritic branching points. This leads to healthier amygdala function and better memory (a). Bacopa also enhances the release of acetylcholine, an important neurotransmitter for attention and memory, in the prefrontal cortex, and boosts antioxidant enzymes in the same area. It maintains healthy serotonin levels as well, leading to reduced stress and anxiety and stable moods.
Bacopa is also an adaptogen that greatly improves your response to stress, bringing resilience and the ability to “bounce back” after failures or setbacks. On top of that, it supports the pineal gland, the physical representation of the 3rd eye, generating creative solutions to problems and higher intuition.
Nambu’s Hi-Memory Formula contains Bacopa Monnieri. It’s infused with phonemes that enhance intuition and the 3rd eye.
Guduchi, aka Giloy, is an adaptogen that reverses the aging process and boosts immunity intelligently. It also reduces stress and anxiety. It’s one of the main brain tonics of Ayurveda that boosts resilience and healthy moods.
Tulsi (Holy Basil)
Tulsi is one of the most popular adaptogens in Ayurveda for healthy stress response. Better yet, while Bacopa helps you respond to adversity more intelligently, Tulsi opens the heart chakra so you can deal with life’s events compassionately.
Love & Grace Formula is infused with phonemes that support compassion.
Turmeric has powerful brain protecting qualities. It reduces inflammation in the brain and elsewhere in the body. There are studies which suggest that disorders like depression could be the result of inflammation in the brain (b). Turmeric is known to improve mood and healthy responses to stress.
Nambu’s Hi-Health and Shreem Brzee Formulas contain Turmeric and black pepper extract. The latter increases the amount of curcuminoids from Turmeric that you absorb and use.
Hi-Health is infused with phonemes that enhance willpower and self-confidence. The phonemes in Shreem Brzee formula eliminate poverty consciousness and attract wealth.
