Many factors contribute to weight gain. We want to address three major ones:

  • Quality & quantity of sleep
  • The way you manage stress
  • The way you manage emotions

Not Sleeping Can Make You Fatter

Insufficient sleep can set you up to make bad decisions that can affect your weight. It lowers your frontal lobe’s ability to help you control impulses, make good decisions and act on those decisions.

When you’re tired, your brain starts seeking activities that feel good. They are often impulsive decisions like eating sweets or sucking down an energizing latte.

Because your frontal lobe is impaired, your ability to say no to that latte may be impaired, too.

A lack of sleep will also elevate your cortisol levels. The spike signals to your body that it needs to conserve energy instead of burning fat.

And So Can Stress

A large percentage of insomnia cases are stress-related. Simply put, stress can destroy a healthy sleep pattern.

Stress in itself elevates cortisol levels. When stress leads to sleep deprivation, the sleep deprivation also elevates cortisol. That’s a double whammy that can make you fatter.

Many weight loss formulas contain adaptogenic herbs because they help reduce stress.

We recommend Bacopa Monnieri because it reduces stress and increases concentration, meditation ability, intuition and memory. It can also improve sleep.

These benefits make a great combo that aids sound decisions.

Are Emotions Controlling Your Eating Habits?

Emotional eating is one of the leading causes of weight gain. It is a coping mechanism that many people use as a reaction to stress and negative emotions.

Emotional eating is usually accompanied by cravings for specific high-fat or high-carb foods.

Our new article highlights two things you can do to destroy this bad habit and manage your stress levels. A solid weight management routine begins with a solid emotion management routine.

We suffer under constant stress. This quiet killer ravages mental and physical health. Meditation soothes the spirit and paves the way to peace and happiness.                                                                                            

Stress refers to the tension we feel when we’re pushed beyond our limits. Chronic stress empowers corticosteroids such as cortisol. Cortisol rewires the brain and blurs decision making.1 Excess cortisol causes inflammation by releasing cytokines.2 Trapped by stress, we suffer maladies like stress rash3 and stress headache4. These evolve into chronic pain,2 depression,5,6 obesity,7 and metabolic syndrome8.        

Meditation shrinks stress. My method dares us to brave chronic stress and bust into new versions of ourselves. This triumph marks the end of anxiety and the age of awe.   

Meditation Benefits for Stress

Transcend stress and anxiety with meditation. Replace constant worry with aha moments and happiness. Science speaks for the benefits.

Across 47 trials and 3,500 people, meditation fortified against stress.9 It reduced anxiety, depression, and pain.9 Another study focused on individuals at work.10 Meditation slashed job strain and amplified well-being. It even reduced blood pressure!10 Meditation delivers stress relief and improves job satisfaction.11

Stress is the enemy of beauty. Meditation preserves youth at the cellular level.12

This ancient practice taps the brakes on cortisol production and invigorates the immune system.11 It balances the autonomic (nervous) system.11 This tapers our fight-or-flight response to life and opens us to act from higher consciousness.

When stress damages our health, meditation heals. Across 19 trials and more than 1,100 people with a post-trauma disorder, meditation helped alleviate symptoms.13 It shines as a viable secondary treatment for this condition.13

In another recent study, participants with generalized anxiety practiced meditation.14 The brief session lowered their stress hormone and inflammation levels.14  Meditation thus creates resiliency against stress.

How to Meditate

Relieve stress with a 5-minute meditation. Find a private space. Then chant Shreem Brzee for five minutes. The sound Shreem Brzee serves as a seed. This seed sprouts into an extraordinary tree—the wealth of the entire universe.

Feel the vibrations of the sound in the face and forehead. Allow attention to fall into the space between the eyebrows while chanting. This promotes true sight. See stress as it is: illusion. Little worries come and go. Keep attention in the sound. The sound obliterates each stressful thought that arises.

After five minutes, soak in your surroundings. See the world as a little child. Reflect on the abundance around you—colors, shapes, and sounds. They intermingle as a symphony.

To supplement this quick meditation, use binaural beats (theta or delta waves) throughout the day. Binaural beats buffer stress.15,16

Shooting the Brzee

Chronic stress crushes our spirit. Meditate with Shreem Brzee and relaxation music to regain an abundance of peace. Beat burnout before it beats you. Take it easy with Shreem Brzee.

Obesity has been on the rise in the USA, the United Kingdom, Mexico, Saudi Arabia, and many other parts of the world..

When the millennium began, 30% of American adults were considered obese. Now, it’s more than 42%.

In both the US and Britain, officials are blaming the growth of fast food chains and lower physical activity.

Two other major culprits appear to be stress and emotional distress.

It is common wisdom among researchers that a majority of people who are overweight are emotional eaters.

People who engage in emotional eating typically eat as a response to negative emotions and stress. An emotional eating episode usually begins with a craving for certain foods. These foods tend to be high in fat and/or carbs.

In a 2017 analysis of studies published in Current Psychology, researchers noted that emotional eating was a bigger cause of obesity than having a lot of junk food and fast food in one’s environment. https://www.mcgill.ca/healthpsychologylab/files/healthpsychologylab/frayn-knnuper2017_article_emotionaleatingandweightinadul.pdf

They also found that emotional eaters are less likely to lose weight from traditional weight loss programs and diets. Programs they examined that involved physical activity helped a little bit more. Programs that involved healthy emotion regulation and mindfulness provided the best results.

2 Ways to Beat Emotional Eating

Do these two things to give those cravings an out-of-the-ballpark one-two-punch.

  1. Try Adaptogenic Herbs

Adaptogenic herbs increase your ability to manage physical, mental and emotional stress. They support your ability to manage emotions mindfully and to recognize stress and negative emotions in the first place.

Many weight loss supplements include adaptogenic herbs for this very reason.

Bacopa Monnieri for Mindfulness, Stress Reduction, Concentration & Cognitive Enhancement

Siddha Bioscience’s (formerly Nambu Botanicals) Hi-Memory Formula has Bacopa Monnieri - an adaptogen - as its main physical ingredient.

Bacopa decreases stress and increases mindfulness. It also acts as a powerful meditation aid that allows you to go deeper into meditation.

The Siddha Yogis of Tamil Nadu, India have used this herb for ages to activate the Third Eye Chakra and enhance intuition.

Vedic priests in general have used it to memorize chants and long verses from scripture because of Bacopa’s ability to improve certain types of memory and concentration.

Hi-Memory formula is infused with sacred sounds that support the Third Eye. Our sound infusions follow ancient metaphysical Siddha Medicine traditions.

“I have been taking the Hi-Memory formula for 3 weeks now before bed and again in the morning. I find I have greater clarity and focus and some amazing intuition and dreams.”
- William G, Verified Buyer

Curcumin for Mood Improvement, Stress Reduction & Fat Control

Curcumin is well-known as an adaptogen that improves moods and helps you manage stress. It may also facilitate weight loss directly by interacting with hormones and other chemicals in the body.

Curcumin is the main physical ingredient in Shreem Brzee formula. It is a Turmeric extract standardized to 95% Curcumin and other curcuminoids.

In India, Turmeric is used for physical health, prosperity, protection and a go-getter mindset. It is associated with the Navel Chakra, the seat of personal power and willpower.

Shreem Brzee is a prosperity mantra associated with Lakshmi, the Goddess of Abundance. The formula is infused with this sacred mantra in accordance with ancient Siddha tradition.

  1. Keep a Food Journal

A food journal can help you track your eating habits and the emotions you feel before, during and after eating. It allows you to become more conscious of how emotions have taken control of your relationship with food.

In your journal, it may help to take note of how hungry or full you were at different times when you made the decision to eat.

The more aware you are of your habits and what causes them, the better you will become at changing your habits.

You may be familiar with the Shreem Brzee prosperity mantra. If not, it is a mantra intended to dissolve poverty consciousness and to gain wealth-attraction consciousness.

There are many ways to benefit from the mantra. Chanting it is obviously one of them.

There is another way to work with Shreem Brzee so that you are dialing in to exactly what you want to manifest in your life and using the mantra to empower your goal.

Keep reading to learn this 3rd Eye trick that empowers your goals so you can bring them to life.

How to Use Your 3rd Eye to Manifest Your Desires

This is the short version of the instructions:

  1. Think of a specific outcome you want to manifest.
  2. Imagine that thought entering your 3rd Eye through the point between the eyebrows. 
  3. Chant (silently or out loud) Shreem Brzee & send it into your 3rd Eye to give power to your thought.

Dr. Pillai explains step 2:

What you do is you just close your eyes and then look at your 3rd Eye, which is the Pineal Gland. Focus attention there and keep on remembering Shreem Brzee Shreem Brzee Shreem Brzee.

When you are talking to other people: Shreem Brzee Shreem Brzee.

It's boring. How can you do it so that it’s not boring?

It will be boring only for half an hour. After that, it will be bliss. Then, even if you want to stop it, you cannot stop it.

The goal should be that it should be going into your Pineal Gland continuously. When you get to that level, the sky is the limit.

A Yogi said, about when the mantra works: The mind becomes the mantra. The mantra takes over, and then the mind is not there...

If you get to that level, then manifestation happens all the time.

Infuse Your Body, Mind & Blood with
Shreem Brzee Consciousness

Nambu’s Shreem Brzee is a Turmeric extract that is standardized to contain 99% Curcumin. Curcumin is the main antioxidant responsible for most of Turmeric’s benefits.

We chose Turmeric for this formula not only for its health benefits, but because Turmeric is the herb of Lakshmi, the prosperity Goddess behind the Shreem Brzee mantra.

Shreem Brzee infusion is a major part of the manufacturing process. This helps you infuse your entire body and mind with wealth consciousness.

“Very intuitive indeed ! Associated with the magnificent « Shreem Brzee » yantra, every taking is a blessed ritual and allows one to trûy enter in deep contact with Turmeric and Lakhsmi Goddess.” - Christian N, Verified Buyer


“The Shreem Brzee infused turmeric capsules from Nambu have been perhaps the most impactful thing I've added to my life in the last five years. They have provided a rock solid foundation to my financial consciousness and the always-a-little chaotic entrepreneurial life. I've also experimented by giving one to a friend and see them instantly switch to talking about some vital financial issue. Somehow it seems to provide near-instant effects, in my experience.” - Juhotunkelo, Verified Buyer

 

In India, Turmeric has been hailed for centuries as an herb that carries the Divine Mother’s fertility and wealth-bestowing powers. 


It has been used in ceremonies invoking Lakshmi the Wealth Goddess and Ganesha the Obstacle Remover. 


During traditional Indian weddings, it is still common for the bride and groom to apply Turmeric to the 3rd Eye points on each other’s foreheads. In other types of ceremonies, participants also mark the 3rd Eye point with Turmeric. 


Many yogis will say that Turmeric is an all-around chakra purifier. They will also say it lifts moods and calms the mind. 


In the west, Turmeric is widely used as a spice and as a valuable source of antioxidants called curcuminoids. The number of clinical studies demonstrating Turmeric’s health benefits is enormous. Because of this, Turmeric’s popularity in the west has surged in recent years. 

How the Prosperity Goddess Works through Turmeric 

In light of the above, Nambu Botanicals created Shreem Brzee Formula

This is a standardized Turmeric extract that optimizes the antioxidant capacity of Turmeric. Standardization ensures that you know how much of the antioxidants you are getting. 

The formula was named after the Shreem Brzee wealth mantra that was revealed to Dr. Pillai. 

The Goddess of Turmeric is Lakshmi. She is the Goddess of fertility and prosperity. The Shreem Brzee mantra connects you with Lakshmi and calls on her to dissolve poverty consciousness and bestow wealth. 

3 Ways to Connect with the Turmeric Goddess 

1. Chant Shreem Brzee or Immerse Yourself in its Vibrations

The simplest way to connect with Lakshmi is to chant Shreem Brzee. You want to do this regularly to establish it as a positive habit. Persistence and momentum are what truly empowers the mantra on the chanter’s end. 

You don’t have to chant it out loud. You can do it silently. You can also play a recording of the chant while you chant along, work, sleep, or do your daily tasks.

Ancient Ayurveda and Siddha Medicine practitioners used special mantras when growing, curing, preparing, dispensing, and taking herbs. While doing so, they honored the God or Goddess they believed lived inside the herb and gave it its power. 

Dr. Pillai created Nambu Botanicals to follow in their footsteps and bring these practices to life again. 

2. Use the Mantra with the Herb

Here’s what a Nambu customer, Rose R, does with Shreem Brzee Formula:

“I chant and also listen to Dr. PIlliai's chant. I feel this empowerment body, mind, and soul.”

If you need more formal instructions, try this:

  1. Hold 1 or 2 capsules in your hand while focusing on your Navel Chakra, or the area between your belly button and your solar plexus. 

  2. Say the sound, Shreem Brzee, a few times while visualizing it going into the Navel Chakra. 

  3. Take the capsules with water. 

  4. For extra benefit: Say out loud or quietly, the sound Shreem Brzee for 5 mins. 

3. Honor Lakshmi with a Turmeric Smoothie

1 cup mango

1 tablespoon coconut oil or avocado oil

½ banana

½ teaspoon cinnamon

½ inch slice of fresh Turmeric OR 1 teaspoon powdered Turmeric OR 1 capsule Shreem Brzee Turmeric (remove from capsule first)

Throw your mix in a blender. Chant Shreem Brzee while mixing, blending, and enjoying. Know that Goddess Lakshmi is entering you and permeating your body as you enjoy your smoothie. 

Note that adding coconut or avocado oil is not just for flavor. Adding fats increases the bioavailability of the antioxidants in Turmeric. 

 

How would you like to have, on a daily basis:

High energy?

Deep tranquility?

A positive mindset?

Motivation & enthusiasm for achieving goals?

Clarity about the most satisfying things to do each day?

There are endless self-help programs and spiritual teachings that can help you achieve these things. If you are practicing any of them right now, we would like to share some insights about herbs that can add a lot of efficiency to your journey. 

The right nutrients can boost the effectiveness of these programs and teachings. 

Eclipta Alba (Bhringaraj) 

The Siddha Yogis of Tamil, India used Eclipta Alba to fuel the brain and enter ecstatic states of consciousness. In Ayurveda, it’s considered a powerful meditation aid and brain protector. 

You rarely hear about this aspect of Eclipta Alba these days. Most people think of it as a shampoo ingredient that can halt hair loss and help regrow hair. Some think of it as a beautifying ingredient in natural skincare products. 

One of the main reasons Dr. Pillai founded Nambu Botanicals was because he wanted to help spread the secretive teachings of the Siddhas. Eclipta Alba is central to these teachings. That’s why Enlightenment Formula was the very first formula we introduced. 

People who use Eclipta Alba orally report:

  • High energy & calmness simultaneously
  • Increased ability to meditate deeply with less effort
  • Higher quality sleep & an easier time falling asleep
  • Deeper intuition & clarity
  • Lower stress
  • Fewer anxious thoughts
  • Creativity & the confidence to think for oneself 

“...I have so much more clarity and understanding. Thank you for these wonderful herbs.” - Josie E, Verified Buyer

“You can really feel your brain awaken! Energy flow throughout the body while cleansing the liver. You can connect to the Universe. You are the Universe!” - Jd D, Verified Buyer

“...I can focus so much better. I can feel a shift to a calmer, broader perception. I feel like a new person :)” - Carolyn R, Verified Buyer

“...I have become more intuitive and my dreams are very vivid I love them I'm on my second bottle.” - Omega F, Verified Buyer

“...Almost magically I am so much more aware of the more subtle realms. I am experiencing my inner sight with my god self more often. The pure vibration of the enlightenment formula is clearing and raising lesser vibrations away!” - Grace A, Verified Buyer

“...I have only been using since two days ago, today (Fathers Day ). I woke up around 7 am and did my morning meditation as usual. After that I decided to work on my yard, grass cutting, weed whacking, dug up weeds in flower beds and trimmed bushes. On top of that I washed the dog and did some laundry. All this on an extremely hot day. Not sure how I manage to do all that in one day. The only difference in my routine is these pills which I am taking 2 to 3 times a day.” - Twillicks, Verified Buyer 

Infused with Sacred Sounds for the Crown Chakra 

Turmeric 

Turmeric is well-known today because it’s a spice that contains antioxidants called curcuminoids. Curcumin is the most prominent of these antioxidants. 

The physical health benefits are numerous and well-studied. Lesser-known are the spiritual and emotional benefits. 

If you ask the Yogis, they will tell you that Turmeric is a gift from Lakshmi, the Goddess of Abundance. 

The Yogis will also say Turmeric increases:

  • Positive moods (confirmed by science)
  • Motivation
  • Self-confidence
  • Energy levels
  • The ability to connect with the Abundance Goddess
  • Mental clarity
  • Calm thinking 

“I have seen amazing transformation in my attitude, patients, even my children. I am not sure if it is the herbs , chanting, or the combo, but the things that are happening for me are awesome.” - Josie E, Verified Buyer

“This Blessed Herb allows me deeper connection to the Goddess.” - Anastasia S, Verified Buyer

“I feel a powerful energy of strength and joy. It's amazing ! Thank you!” - Sylvia H, Verified Buyer

“I have clarity of my mind, fewer body aches, and calmness in myself.” - Subhashini Y, Verified Buyer 

Infused with Sacred Sounds for the Navel Chakra 

Nambu’s  Phoneme Infusion Difference 

At Nambu Herbs, we offer something a little different. Our herbs are infused with sacred sounds in accordance with the ancient Siddha Medicine and Ayurveda traditions. 

Shreem Brzee Formula is infused with the vibrations of the prosperity mantra, Shreem Brzee. The mantra exists to dissolve poverty consciousness and bring us prosperity consciousness. 

Shreem Brzee Turmeric is a Turmeric extract designed to infuse the body and mind with the vibrations of Lakshmi and bring the benefits of Curcumin in a concentrated and standardized form. 

“If I just run my life without any goal, then life happens, but that will be a karmic life without any glory to it.” - Dr. Pillai, Founder of Nambu Botanicals 

A human’s purpose in life is to learn to live in the NOW eternally. 

That’s just the universal purpose of life. Every individual has an individual path they need to take to get there, too. 

Your soul has a long-term purpose that may span lifetimes. It also has a purpose for this lifetime and a purpose for RIGHT NOW. 

What do you need to do right NOW? 

There’s something you need to do that brings you more wisdom and more joy for the long-term. As a soul, you know what that is. If you don’t, your job right now is to find out what it is and do it. 

There are tools for that, like meditation, using sacred sounds, and developing your intuition. There are nutrients and herbs for that as well, like Eclipta Alba and Bacopa Monnieri

All of these things help align you with your soul so that you know what your purpose is; NOW, this week, this month and this lifetime.  

A Siddha Herb for Perceiving & Implementing Your Life Purpose  

Regular users of Bacopa Monnieri report benefits such as:

  • Increased intuition
  • Opening of the 3rd Eye
  • Lower stress 
  • Calmer thinking with less anxiety
  • Enhanced learning ability
  • Prolonged concentration for faster goal achievement
  • Meditation sessions that are deeper & produce more fruit

Some of these benefits are well-studied in medical science. They include stress reduction, memory and concentration. Others are more subjective. 

Today, Bacopa is best-known as the primary nootropic (brain-booster) herb of the southern portions of India. 

The Siddha Yogis of Tamil, India have used Bacopa for accessing the soul through the 3rd Eye. Ancient Vedic priests used it for that and for memorizing long prayers and chants. 

All of these benefits are helpful for those who intend to align with their individual life purposes. 

A calmer mind means you can act on your intuition more easily without succumbing to fear or anxious thoughts. 

It also means deeper meditation sessions, which bring more clarity and soul alignment. 

A concentrated mind also means deeper meditation. Another benefit of a concentrated mind is the ability to follow your life purpose and implement it efficiently. 

 The Phoneme Infusion Difference 

Practitioners of Ayurveda and Siddha Medicine infused herbs with special mantras. They believed this added a new dimension of healing potential and unleashed the Divine, which exists in all herbs. 

But that was in the past. People rarely do this NOW. The purpose of the founding of Nambu Botanicals was to bring these ancient practices back into the NOW. 

Herbs are not mere material structures, just as you are not a mere body. You are much bigger than that. The herbs you use should be seen in the same light.

If you did not have fear, you would be much more capable of achieving greatness. I’m talking about the irrational and unfounded fear so many of us carry with us each day.

This survival mode fear is what keeps you worrying and thinking to yourself:

  • I am going to lose my job
  • We won’t have enough money
  • What about my health and the health of my loved ones?
  • He is going to leave me

It is the #1 emotion that sideswipes your:

  • Go-getter attitude
  • Willingness to “grasp the brass ring”
  • Ability to fulfill life desires and do the things we incarnated to do
  • Immune system’s ability to do its job of protecting you

For many, the “fear brain” silently drives everyday life.

The power your fear brain has over you depends on your neurochemistry and karma (limiting thought cycles and subconscious beliefs). You can loosen its grip by “feeding” your fear brain. 

Invite Your Fear Brain to Dinner 

Ask yourself, “If I were to invite my fear brain to dinner, what would I make?”

We’re not necessarily talking food here. You can feed your brain nutrients, and you will see below that some nutrients can help you in your journey toward letting go of fear. As you will also see, you may need to throw some non-physical ingredients in the pot, too.

You can keep feeding your fear brain rubbish, like negative thoughts that feed the fear. However, there are far healthier ingredients to give it that will feed your inner champion instead.

Keep reading for “recipe” ideas.  

1. Curcumin

Curcumin is the most abundant nutrient and antioxidant in Turmeric. A standardized Curcumin supplement is an extract of Turmeric that is guaranteed to be at least 95% Curcumin (or some other specific percentage).

In a recent animal study at Hunter College in New York, they found that Curcumin supplementation can help remove Pavlovian fear memories. These are the same types of traumatic memories that cause some war veterans to lash out at people or act strangely for no apparent reason. (1)

A rat is less likely to recall and react to a fear memory if its diet is enriched with curcumin. Curcumin also impairs its ability to “encode” the fear memory in the first place.

In other words, fear has less power over a rat’s behavior. The researchers believe that this likely applies to humans as well.

2. Sound Vibrations that Dissolve & Replace Fear Vibrations

You can reset your fear by neutralizing and replacing it with vibrations that infuse the physical body and aura.

Sound infusion is the answer. One way to infuse yourself with sound is to use a mantra.

Do you have poverty consciousness that is rooted in fear? Is it hard for you to feel truly worthy enough to ask for that promotion and actually get it? Is fear holding you back from doing what it takes to start building that dream business?

Do you want to dissolve poverty consciousness and fears that limit your wealth? Shreem Brzee may be a good mantra for you.

If fear holds you back from healthy romantic relationships, or it impairs your ability to even have a relationship, use Kleem.

You must make the mantra a habit for it to work. Chant it as often as you can. Use it as background music while you work or work out. Write it out on paper 108 or 1,008 times.

This will dissolve and replace bad thought habits, many of which you did not know existed. It will clean your conscious and subconscious minds and your subtle body. 

3. Phoneme-Infused Herbs that Infuse YOU with Sound

Dr. Pillai founded Nambu Botanicals because he saw that much of the ancient herbal wisdom from Ayurveda and Siddha Medicine is not used today.

In the old days, practitioners infused the herbs with sacred sounds. The herbs, in turn, infused the herb takers.

Shreem Brzee Turmeric is a Curcumin supplement that is standardized for 95% Curcumin. This means 95% of each dose is Curcumin.

What separates it from other Curcumin supplements is that this formula is infused with the sound vibrations of the Shreem Brzee mantra.

4. Unshakeable Willpower!

Shreem Brzee is formulated for the Navel Chakra. This is the energy center of your subtle body that governs willpower. According to Siddha Medicine, Turmeric empowers this energy center.

Scientifically speaking, Curcumin increases your heart rate variability (HRV). Your heart rate may be 60 beats per minute, but that doesn’t mean that all beats are one second apart. The more the time between beats varies, the higher your HRV. Higher HRV means higher willpower and self-discipline and vice versa. (2)(3)

A great way to increase both your HRV and your willpower is deep, controlled breathing through the nose. Curcumin and diaphragmatic breathing make an excellent pair. You can enlist both to help you develop the willpower, self-confidence and self-discipline you need to achieve your most cherished goals.

In order to merely survive and keep your body’s insides functioning, you need approximately 0.37 grams of protein per pound of body weight. For the metric system people, that’s 0.8 grams per kilogram of body weight. 

This means a woman weighing 150 pounds, or 68kg, needs approximately 55g of protein.  

Consider that the bare minimum. If you want to think clearly, move around, or build up immunity, you need more. 

How Much Protein Do You Need to Function & Thrive?

For that, the woman above needs about 85g of protein per day. That’s only a rough estimate. I’m just trying to emphasize the importance of getting enough high-quality protein in your diet. 

In fact, this is nowhere near exact. Everyone has a unique rate of metabolism. Any underlying health condition is also going to alter these numbers.

For example, I am a 57-year-old woman of average weight who goes to the gym three times a week (but not at the moment), exercises on non-gym days and gardens with fervor. I also do my best to consume approximately 90g of protein per day.  

Protein IS the building block of all the body’s cells, including the ones that power your immune system. The protein you consume breaks down into amino acids. These amino acids become many specialized building blocks for specialized cells. 

OMG, you say. That is a heck of a lot of food… Not really. 

List of Protein-Rich Foods 

Here are some examples of protein-rich foods and how much protein they give you: 

 Food                                                           Grams of Protein

 3 ounces tuna, salmon, haddock or trout         21g

 3 ounces cooked turkey or chicken                 19g

 6 ounces plain Greek yogurt                           17g

 ½ cup cottage cheese                                     14g 

 ½ cup cooked beans                                         8g 

 1 cup of milk                                                      8g

1 cup cooked basmati rice                                 6g 

¼ cup or 1 ounce of nuts (all types)                  7g 

1 egg                                                                 6g

Yeah, I know. I kind of mixed my methods of measuring, but you get my point. 

How to Choose & Use a Protein Powder

Protein powders come in really handy. I have some days when I just don’t want to eat much, but…

Instead of sacrificing my nutrient profile for the day, I mix up a smoothie with protein powder or just take the protein powder without a smoothie.   

My personal protein of choice is whey. I switched from plant-based stuff as I found I was having trouble digesting the pea, rice and hemp proteins. 

I was paranoid at first, thinking I couldn’t do the whey because I stay away from dairy most of the time. I guess you could say that I “limit” dairy because it usually contributes to inflammation.  

Seek out a powder that is made from “whey isolate.” This means that most of the carbs and fats have been removed, leaving primarily protein content. Even most lactose intolerant people find that they can tolerate whey protein. 

I do, and I notice a big difference in my mood, as protein is also a building block for feel-good hormones that help to stave off depression. Can you say “social distancing?” 

Dairy Products & Chronic Inflammation

Now back to the inflammation from dairy products that I mentioned above.  

Normal inflammation is a good thing. In fact, it is the body’s natural response to stimuli. 

Oh the memories of putting a candle out with my fingers! The red, warm and puffy reaction.  This is good inflammation. 

These response symptoms are signs that my body sprang into action to heal my fingers.

Some inflammatory responses are inappropriate or last too long. This gives rise to nasty conditions like diabetes, cardiovascular disease, inflammatory bowel disease, autoimmune disorders, depression, and the list goes on. 

This, my friends, is why my personal choice is to avoid all pro-inflammatory food. 

A Superb Way to Conquer Inflammation

Luckily we all have access to a really good turmeric/curcumin supplement from Nambu Botanicals. It’s called Shreem Brzee.

Like I said in another recent nutrition rant, ingesting turmeric spice by itself is helpful. However, it just does not give the same degree of health benefits as standardized curcumin. This is because standardized turmeric extracts are made almost entirely of curcumin and other antioxidants called curcuminoids. The bioavailability of these antioxidants is low. This means your body only absorbs and uses a small percentage. 

What also makes Nambu’s Shreem Brzee stand out is that they’re old school. Nambu Botanicals follows the old Ayurveda and Siddha Medicine traditions of infusing herbs with special mantras. 

Shreem Brzee is a prosperity mantra associated with a special form of Goddess Lakshmi. The mantra is good for meditation, but it is also good for dissolving poverty consciousness and replacing it with the consciousness that attracts wealth.

Nambu infuses the herb with the mantra. Then the herb and the mantra infuse YOU.

Thus endeth today’s rant,

Hope you found this at least a little helpful in these oh-so-strange-times,

Do your best.

Keep safe and healthy everyone.

In uncertain times, it’s especially important to remain grounded and centered. When we’re dealing with a constant fight or flight stress response, our immune systems suffer. So do our decision-making skills, relationships, and other matters in life. 

Consistently deep breathing helps us with all these things and helps prevent illnesses. It is one of the most important things you can do for your immune system. It doesn’t take much of your time. In fact, you can overlap deep breathing with other activities, like dishwashing.   

Benefits of deep breathing for the immune system:

  • Balances the immune system so that it doesn’t overreact & cause harm
  • Stimulates production of natural killer (NK) cells
  • Lowers cortisol, the stress hormone
  • Improves sleep, which is important for proper immune function
  • Helps reduce chronic inflammation, the root of most illnesses
  • Fuels your blood with oxygen, which goes into your cells & organs
  • Enhances your ability to listen to your body’s needs 

How to Breathe Diaphragmatically for Immune System Support 

Do this exercise as often as you can remember to. This will form a habit that you will thank yourself for in the long run. 

  1. Inhale slowly and deeply through your nose.
  2. During the inhale, imagine your belly as a balloon that inflates in all directions. You should feel it gently pushing your spine, your groin, and your ribs as it inflates.
  3. Exhale slowly and deeply through your nose and let your “balloon” deflate. 

For even deeper breathing, you can add another step after #2: After your balloon fills up, allow your chest to expand like a balloon. While exhaling, deflate your chest first and then your belly. 

If controlled breathing is a new habit you’re trying to establish, you may need to get used to the extra oxygen. You will get used to it quickly.
