A few of our favorite longevity tips to help you enjoy life longer :)
We all want to stay young. You’ve probably seen a lot of tips for doing so, but have you seen the ones below? All are backed with sound scientific research, just like all of the PHONEME INFUSED™ herbs at Nambu Botanicals.
Maintain a Sense of Purpose
Researchers kept track of the work habits of 1,528 Americans, beginning in the 1920’s when they were kids, until 2011. They were chosen by school teachers based on “giftedness”. The study found that a conscientious work ethic can extend life by 2 or 3 years. The kids who were dependable went on to live longer. The study’s authors said the men likely lived longer because they had less risky behavior, entered stable relationships as adults, and had better social networks. The least dutiful men were much more likely to fight Japan in World War 2. Volunteer, and do something meaningful, when you retire from a job. (1)
Make Friends & Keep them
Multiple studies have shown that strong social networks improve health. Some say they improve health cumulatively over time, leading to biological youth and a longer life (2). If you find yourself without friends, find new people with similar interests. Seek churches, volunteer organizations, meetup groups or clubs. If you really don’t want to do this, pets count as friends and help people live longer (5).
Embrace Challenges with Resilience
Eustress, the type of stress that gives you the drive to make good things happen in life, can help you live longer. A Harvard study found a correlation between embracing challenges and having strong social networks (2). Try new things, learn new things, persist with resilience and stay challenged and active.
Use Anti-Aging Herbs Like Guduchi
Guduchi is the primary anti-aging herb in Ayurveda and Siddha Medicine. One of its Indian names is Amrit, which means “nectar, or elixir, of immortality.” It’s packed with antioxidants and balances the immune system. It reduces stress and anxious thoughts. Whether you use it orally or topically, it keeps your hair and skin looking and feeling young. (3)(4
All of Nambu’s herbs are infused with sound vibrations in accordance with the old Ayurveda and Siddha Medicine traditions. Our Guduchi is infused with sounds that support the Throat Chakra and free expression of your unique self and your higher truth.
“Guduchi is incredible, I can feel a surge of Kundalini energy through my throat and into my brain chakras. truly amazing. Love from Australia.” - Michael T, Verified Buyer

According to Siddha tradition, herbs are often manifestations of Gods and Goddesses. Tulsi is also known as Holy Basil. Both names are relatively new. It was previously named after Brinda (sometimes spelled Vrinda), a powerful devotee of Vishnu, the God of Wealth and Abundance. Tulsi is considered to be the earthly manifestation of Brinda.
Brinda’s love for Vishnu gave her and her demon husband incredible powers.
Tulsi, the herb, increases your capacity for love and opens your Heart Chakra. People who use it report more compassion, understanding and patience. Tulsi also reduces stress and cortisol, the stress hormone. That is why Nambu Botanicals’ PHONEME INFUSED™ Tulsi formula is called Love & Grace.
Dr. Baskaran Pillai, Nambu’s Founder, explains the practical purpose of recognizing the Goddess in herbs:
“Brinda was a woman who loved extremely well, but not wisely though. She loved too much, but not wisely.”
“In the practice of Ayurveda and Siddha Medicine, people have discontinued the rituals associated with the consumption of the herbs. Brinda has to be worshipped. Even in many households, Tulsi is worshipped by particularly women, but they don’t know the story. ... if you do know the story, and worship, you will get the benefits of getting into a form of love that is supported by prudence.”
“The other thing that I have done is to completely revive, as far as possible, to give the essence of these Siddha/Ayurvedic herbs for people. The herbs become completely powerful only when their phonemes are used to empower them. I call it PHONEME INFUSED™ Herbs.”
You can read the story of Tulsi below.
The Story of Tulsi
Brinda was married to Jalandhara, a demon who was manifested from the anger of Shiva, the Ultimate Karma Removal Archetype, during a fight.
Brinda was also a devotee of the God of Wealth and Abundance, Vishnu. This gave her tremendous yogic powers. It made her husband very powerful as well, and he defeated all the kings of the Earth. Before long, he even attacked the Gods and Goddesses, defeating them, too.
Because Jalandhara was born from Shiva’s anger, only Shiva could defeat him.
Shiva tried to reason with Jalandhara, only to be met with insults. He realized he needed to assemble an army of Gods and Goddesses to destroy him.
Jalandhara Tries to Trick Shiva’s Wife
One of Jalandhara’s yogic powers was the art of illusion. He changed forms and tricked the army. Then he took on the form of Shiva and appeared to Shiva’s wife, Parvati. He told her he had defeated Jalandhara.
Parvati wasn’t fooled. Being as powerful as Shiva, she picked up a sword and threatened Jalandhara with it. Weakened from his earlier battles, he ran away.
Vishnu Creates a Plan to Defeat Jalandhara
Vishnu appeared before Parvati. He explained that Jalandhara’s powers came from Brinda’s devotion to Vishnu and came up with a plan.
As Jalandhara was battling Shiva, Vishnu appeared to Brinda in the form of Jalandhara. He told her he had defeated Shiva and proved his invincibility. This made her stop praying to Vishnu for her husband’s protection. Her prayers were interrupted, giving Shiva the ability to kill him.
Brinda Rebirths as Tulsi
When Vishnu explained the trick, and announced the news of Jalandhara’s death, she cursed Vishnu, who accepted the curse. After Vishnu explained that she had a duty to keep her husband’s power and arrogance in check, she fell down and died.
As Vishnu grieved his greatest devotee, Shiva told him that Vrinda would be reborn as Tulsi, one of the greatest medicinal plants, and a physical embodiment of the power of love and devotion.
Learn 3 secrets for accelerating the Law of Attraction & eliminating poverty consciousness.
We’re often taught that spirituality is incompatible with financial abundance. St. Francis, Gautama Buddha, and Jesus were renunciants who took vows of poverty. Not all Enlightened Masters have walked that path, however. The Siddha Yogis have always viewed abundance as freedom.
If you have a dream for a business or charity, money allows you not only to create the organization with less effort. It also allows you to hire people who know how to make the organization succeed, or to take courses that fulfill the same purpose. This can save you years of trial and error and prevent mistakes and failure. With enough money, you can also express your true thoughts and feelings to your boss without worrying about consequences. That’s authenticity.
Today, we’ll walk you through 3 powerful secrets for multiplying your money attraction efforts with meditation, karma removal and a specific herb from Ayurveda and Siddha medicine.
Shreem is a Sanskrit Bija, or seed, syllable for Wealth Goddess Lakshmi. Lakshmi eliminates the karmic thought patterns that keep you stuck in either poverty or “just getting by” mode. She also boosts your ability to attract abundance like a magnet. Brzee was revealed to Nambu’s Founder, Dr. Baskaran Pillai, to add manifesting power to Shreem.
To dissolve poverty consciousness, receive insights for increasing your wealth and actually attract more wealth, use the Shreem Brzee mantra with persistence.
It can take a while to change the circuitry of your brain and replace the thought patterns of poverty. There are some shortcuts however.
There are videos and audios of Dr. Pillai chanting Shreem Brzee. You can play it in the background while you work, eat, exercise or enjoy a break from work.
KEEP IN MIND: None of this is possible unless you make your own efforts to change your own consciousness to be more positive and more resilient to self-doubt. It's hard but worth it and this herb will help.
This shortcut will infuse your whole body with abundance consciousness. Some people have received money breakthroughs within the first few days of using this shortcut. Each brain is different, so results may vary.
Create a Shreem Brzee Multiplier Ceremony
You can do this hydration offering with or without the herbal shortcut. However, the shortcut may multiply your results.
1 Get a statue or image of Lakshmi. You may want to laminate the image for the next steps.
You can include Ganesha in your ceremony as well. His seed mantra is Gum.
You will have best results if you are very specific with your intent when you begin your ceremony. Make sure you can fully believe you can accomplish the goal, and create a timeline.
“Lakshmi and I will manifest $1,000 more in August than I normally make.”
“I will have the down payment for one of the 3 houses I’ve been looking at by the end of next month.”
“I will find a $60,000+ per year job, in an environment I love to work in, before the end of January.”
All of Nambu’s herbs are infused with sound vibrations. Nambu Botanicals was founded for the purpose of reviving the lost Ayurveda and Siddha Medicine practice of bringing herbs to life with mantra.
Shreem Brzee Formula contains Turmeric, a Lakshmi herb that reduces inflammation and increases willpower, intestinal fortitude and confidence. It’s infused with the Shreem Brzee Wealth Attraction Mantra.
Your daily sit or mantra may not be enough. Try these empowering secrets.
The World Health Organization has called stress “the health epidemic of the 21st Century (1).” Some of the most common symptoms of stress are tension headaches, job mistakes, racing thoughts, memory problems, lack of concentration and tense muscles.
The #1 secret to less stress, tension and headaches is vigilance.
Monitor your thoughts, breath and body tension throughout the day. Try mindfulness meditation with a breath focus, and/or body scan techniques. Make sure you're getting enough rest, and help balance your body and mind using adaptogenic herbs (see below). Awareness of tension empowers you to release it.
10 - 20 minutes of scheduled meditation twice per day can free you from a stressful mindset. You can also build momentum by taking a couple of minutes every hour to check in on your thoughts, body sensations and breath. Add mantras, yoga poses, devotional chanting, gratitude practice to your routine if you wish.

Tulsi (Holy Basil): This herb lowers cortisol, the stress hormone. It’s an adaptogen that improves your mental and physical responses to stress. Tulsi also improves both patience and compassion for the people around you. Nambu’s Love & Grace Formula is PHONEME INFUSED™ with sound vibrations that nourish the Heart Chakra, in accordance with forgotten Ayurveda and Siddha principles.
Turmeric: This is the most studied of all Ayurveda and Siddha Medicine herbs. An adaptogen like Tulsi, Turmeric improves your mental and physical responses to stress and improves moods (2)(3). Curcumin, Turmeric’s most touted active ingredient, can reverse stress-induced brain changes (4). It can increase the brain’s adaptability, which means the growth of new neurons and new connections between neurons (5). This reduces stress and boosts learning potential. Nambu’s Hi-Health Formula is infused with sounds that support willpower and confidence for goal achievement. The standardized black pepper extract multiplies absorption of Turmeric’s active ingredients (6).
The Full Moon of the Guru, or Guru Purnima, is when the Gurus and Enlightened Beings descend to the Earth plane to help you remove blocks to health, prosperity and enlightenment. It begins this Thursday and continues through Friday night.
In the free webcast below, Dr. Pillai shares revelatory teachings about your true nature as a Light Being. He also guides you in a powerful meditation for wisdom, energy, healing, power and immortality for the coming Full Moon.
Your Nambu Botanicals Team
This Full Moon can change your karma & brain more than all the others if you use it wisely.
Nambu Herbs Founder Dr. Baskaran Pillai explains the power of a miracle-filled night, called Full Moon of the Guru, below. He also provides tips to prepare spiritually in the days and nights leading up to this special night, which is Friday, July 27th. He has given a special mantra for you to use (hint: It’s not Shreem Brzee, although that will help you as well).
This is a great time to infuse your body and mind with the Ultimate Wealth Mantra, Shreem Brzee, by chanting it and using Nambu’s Shreem Brzee Formula. If you don’t have the formula , you can buy it here at its new lower price.
A Message from Dr. Pillai:
Full Moons, in general, have a tremendous amount of power over the brain. The Full Moon of the Guru, or Guru Purnima, can change your brain in a miraculous way.
This happens because of the Angels, Gurus and Ascended Masters, coming down into this Earth plane during this time…
This particular Full Moon, this Guru’s Full Moon, is the day when the Gurus come here to help people. So what happens when the Gurus get involved?
These are people who live in a state of consciousness where it is not difficult to change the reality, or the karma, of the people.
The Guru is often attributed to have the ability to change the karma of people. They have taken upon themselves this mission of making life easier for people. That is their obligation.
The Indian Tradition says Guru is none other than God on the Earth plane. In order to be totally transformed by the Guru, you have to look at the Guru as your own Higher Self, as your own God guiding you. If you have the trust, then you are transformed.
The upcoming Full Moon of The Guru is a very special time. That’s why I do this special program during every Guru Purnima time.
Take the 45-Day Shreem Brzee Wealth Mantra Challenge
Chant Shreem Brzee 100,000 times from July 13th through August 26th. The challenge began on the 13th, but maybe you can still reach 100K. This mantra eliminates poverty consciousness and attracts wealth through the grace of Wealth Goddess Lakshmi. To further infuse your body, blood and mind with wealth consciousness, use Nambu’s Shreem Brzee Formula with Turmeric. The formula is infused with Shreem Brzee and Lakshmi’s blessings. See the Shreem Brzee Wealth Mantra Facebook Group for more details about the challenge and to join the community.
Dr. Pillai’s most recent advice on how to prepare for Full Moon of the Guru: “The moment you begin to change your consciousness, everything will change.. That is how you prepare yourself. The easiest thing that you can do is to chant Om (pronounced like ohm) as loudly as possible. Do it as many times as possible, starting from today. Then, on the Full Moon day, whether you come to the program in person, or watch/listen online, or even if you don’t attend: Keep on chanting Om.”
Did you know that long-term stress can make you more hungry and more likely to eat fattening foods? It can also lead to a “less mindful approach” to eating. The result is weight gain.
Cortisol, your “fight or flight” stress hormone, increases insulin levels. This makes your blood sugar drop, leading you to reach for the cookies instead of your salad greens. The resulting weight gain, if it persists, can lead to glucose imbalances, blood flow obstruction, heart conditions and other serious problems. (1)
The good news is you CAN reverse stress-related weight gain using these mindful eating practices and supportive herbs. Try this:
Change the Way Your Food is Presented
Clinical Psychologist Susan Albers, author of Eating Mindfully, marveled at the way people ate fruit on kebab skewers. They slowed down and savored the fruits more than they would have if they were eating from a bowl. Savoring your food allows you to absorb more nutrients and catch yourself before you overeat.
Eat in a Quiet Place or “Eat Loudly”
Can you hear what you eat? Researchers from Brigham Young and Colorado State told one group to focus on the sounds they made while eating. Another group wore headphones. The second group ate 45% more. Key takeaway: Eat in a quiet environment and focus on the sounds you make while chewing. (2)
Consume Veggies with Natural Sugars
Consuming sweet potatoes, beets and other sweet vegetables may reduce your cravings for candy, ice cream and other fattening foods.
Don’t Eat in Your Workspace
Eating at your desk destroys your concentration and therefore interrupts mindful eating. Eat in a break room or a distraction-free (and quiet) spot outside. This will tell your brain that it’s OK not to multitask.
Sit Down to Eat
Instead of eating on the run, be sure to sit down. This will cause less overeating later in the day.
University of Surrey researchers studied three groups. All three ate granola bars. One group watched TV while eating. A second group walked around. Each person in the third group sat down with a friend. When offered more snacks in a “taste test”, the walkers ate five times as much chocolate as the sitters and TV watchers. They ate more of the other snacks as well, which included carrot sticks, grapes and crisps. Other studies have shown that conversation and TV leads to overeating as well, but it’s clear that walking around is far worse. (3)(4)
A 2009 Tufts University study found that curcumin, the most touted active ingredient of Turmeric, may help prevent weight gain. New blood vessels must form before your fat tissue can expand and make you heavier. Curcumin appears to depress this process in rats with high-fat diets. (7)
Korean researchers found that curcumin can turn white fat, the stuff we normally think of as fat, into brown fat. A high brown fat ratio means higher metabolism, because white fat is mainly stored to be used later. Brown fat becomes energy more readily. (8)(9)
Nambu’s Hi-Health Formula contains Turmeric plus black pepper extract. The extract contains piperine, a compound that can increase the amount of active nutrients you absorb by up to 20 times (10). Taking Turmeric with healthy fats will also increase absorption.
Hi-Health Formula is infused with sounds that support willpower, ambition and intestinal fortitude, three qualities that Turmeric also supports.
Tulsi helps prevent sudden changes in blood sugar levels. It also lowers cortisol. Both properties help prevent cravings for unhealthy food. For those with hormone-induced weight gain, Tulsi can also help balance your hormones. (5)(6)
Tulsi’s also widely used to reduce stress and increase patience and compassion.
To revive ancient Ayurveda and Siddha Medicine traditions, Nambu’s infuses its Love & Grace Tulsi Formula with sounds that support compassion and the Heart Chakra.

Adaptogens help with more than just stress. Learn their common benefits.
Adaptogenic herbs, aka adaptogens, are herbs that help your body and mind adapt to physical and mental stress. This definition is somewhat narrow. All adaptogens share a few common benefits, and not all of them are stress-related.
Common Benefits of Adaptogens
Healthier Stress Response
Cortisol, the stress hormone, spikes when you experience the “fight or flight” response to stress. This response was less frequent in the hunting and gathering days, when you occasionally had to worry about a dangerous animal or a rival group of humans. Responding to the threat allowed the cortisol levels to drop once the threat disappeared.
In the developed world, a lot of things elevate cortisol. If spikes become too frequent, they can tax your adrenals, your digestive system and other systems of the body. This can cause a lot of problems, including lower immune function and premature aging. Adaptogens relieve and prevent many of these problems in the long term.
Normalization of Weight
If you have gained weight because of chronic stress, obviously, adaptogens can help you lose unwanted fat. Stress is largely responsible for a lot of cases of obesity. Adaptogens are known for helping with the regulation of the adrenal system, which cortisol is a part of. There could be other ways in which they help you lose weight, but stress reduction is the main one common to all of them.
Healthier Immune System
It’s clear that lower stress leads to better immune function. Adaptogens also correct imbalances in other body systems. Many of them also contain powerful antioxidants that kill free radicals that lead to inflammation and disease.
Physical & Mental Endurance
Adaptogens protect the brain, reduce fatigue and increase energy in general. They also increase oxygen efficiency and cardiovascular function, leading to higher exercise stamina and better focus. All these properties support physical and mental endurance. Adaptogens also support the manufacture of proteins and other substances that repair muscles after exercise.
Reduced stress makes you feel better, and it decreases anxiety. The nootropic effects of adaptogens boost energy levels and increase brain oxygen efficiency. Each adaptogen has some type of regulatory effect on at least some hormones, and this can also improve mood.
Better Memory & Focus
Reading the above benefits, this should go without saying. Adaptogens, to varying degrees, have nootropic (brain boosting) properties.
Nambu Botanicals offers adaptogenic herbs with an additional bonus. We were founded for the purpose of reviving the “old school” practices of Ayurveda and Siddha Medicine. Specifically, we have revived the holistic ancient practice of infusing herbs with sound vibrations that support physical, mental and spiritual health.
Turmeric . Turmeric is known for its antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties. It’s also a mood enhancer and motivation booster. We offer two formulas with Turmeric as the main ingredient:
Hi-Health Formula contains a black pepper extract standardized for piperine, a compound that multiplies the number of curcuminoids (active ingredients) your body absorbs. It’s also PHONEME INFUSED™ with sounds that support willpower, self-confidence and the ability to get things done.
(Back in Stock!) Shreem Brzee Formula with Turmeric is PHONEME INFUSED™ with the Ultimate Wealth-Building Mantra, Shreem Brzee. The mantra invokes Wealth Goddess Lakshmi, reduces the subtle thought patterns that cause poverty and increases wealth attraction consciousness. You can chant the mantra and infuse your whole body with it at the same time.
Tulsi . Tulsi is one of the major stress-reducing adaptogens. It’s known to increase patience, compassion, memory, focus, and libido. Nambu’s Love & Grace Formula is infused with sounds that support compassion and the Heart Chakra. Did you know tulsi is grown around the Taj Mahal to reduct environmental pollutants and purify the air?
Guduchi . Guduchi is best known as an anti-aging herb and immune system balancer. People with pollen sensitivities often report great results with this herb. It’s also called “Amrita”, which means Elixir of Immortality. The antioxidant properties make it a favorite of those who wish to reduce inflammation.
Lord Ganesha, the beloved, elephant-headed Archetype, is most accessible on 4th and 14th Moon phases in the Vedic calendar. The next 14th moon is June 10th. This is a powerful time to call upon the "obstacle remover God," and access his super intelligence. According to Siddha wisdom, you can turbo-charge your results using specific, PHONEME-INFUSED™ herbs and mantras that will activate your ROOT and CROWN chakras to merge your consciousness with Ganesha's divine intelligence.
Nambu Herbs Founder Dr. Pillai shares his insights on Ganesha’s infinite intelligence: “Ganesha’s special intelligence can be employed to remove obstacles which you cannot even conceive of, because you confront obstacles only after they occur.
Meditation on Ganesha will give you the ability to solve your problems. This is because, whatever you focus on, you become that. If you meditate on Ganesha over and over and over again, then you acquire his powers.”
Ganesha’s Mantras for Superhuman Intelligence & Obstacle Removal
You can meditate on Ganesha with these sounds:
Clear obstacles between you and Ganesha with this unique, PHONEME INFUSED™ combination of formulas. All Nambu formulas are supercharged with sounds according to ancient Ayurveda and Siddha Medicine traditions.
These adaptogenic superherbs work synergistically to activate your higher intelligence, boost intuition and dissolve unwanted karma. All three work beautifully together but can also be used alone according to your needs.
**HI-HEALTH Formula (Turmeric): Cleanses the Root and Navel chakras for removal of fear. In fact, a study found that Turmeric weakens and suppresses traumatic fear memories (1). Turmeric increases willpower as well. Hi-Health includes black pepper extract to increase absorption of the active nutrients in the Turmeric. Take 2 capsules daily after food.
** ENLIGHTENMENT FORMULA (Eclipta Alba): Enables you to merge with Ganesha's vast intelligence, connecting you to the universal energies and psychic experiences. It calms and activates your 3rd Eye and Crown Chakras. Eclipta Alba is also a powerful meditation aid. Take one or two capsules daily.
** VINPOCETINE Vinpocetine is a “smart nutrient” facilitating cerebral metabolism by improving blood flow throughout the entire brain. The better communication between your cells, the better you perform, mentally and physically. Vinpocetine powers the brain by stepping up the production of cellular energy and increasing glucose and oxygen utilization.
Turmeric has become one of the most studied herbs in medical science. This remarkable adaptogen is so versatile that we created not one, but two separate PHONEME INFUSED™ formulas, HI-HEALTH and SHREEM BRZEE TURMERIC.
The ‘golden goddess herb’ is believed to cleanse the 72,000 invisible “Nadi” channels of the body, thereby enabling the free flow of life-force energy.
Our unique PHONEME-INFUSION™ process creates uncommon Turmeric formulas. supercharged by sacred sound vibrations selected by our Founder, Dr. Baskaran Pillai, according to ancient Siddha medicine tradition.
While the anti-inflammatory properties of Turmeric are well-known, today we’ll take a look at some lesser-known but equally powerful benefits:
Turmeric Lifts Moods
In a study called Efficacy and Safety of Curcumin in Major Depressive Disorder, researchers divided subjects with Major Depressive Disorder (MDD) into three groups. One took the anti-depressant Prozac. Another took curcumin, the active ingredient of Turmeric, in an oil-based form. A third group took a combination of the two. The combo group performed the best in tests of mood and other symptoms after six weeks. The other two scored roughly the same, with the Prozac group doing just a couple percentage points better. Don’t take this as advice to drop your medications. That’s not within our domain. The point is that this, and other studies, show that Turmeric is good for moods. (1)
Turmeric is Antifungal, Antiviral & Antibacterial
Turmeric in milk slows milk from spoiling and reduces fungal growth in bread. Applying Turmeric to cuts and burns may accelerate healing of the tissues, reduce inflammation and burn pain, and prevent infections (2). It also improves blood flow to speed healing. Footnote link (3) has some fungus and bacteria experiments you can try at home.
Turmeric Protects the Brain from Cognitive Decline, Improves Memory & Contentment
A 2015 Australian study found that Curcumin, taken orally, improves working memory and attention as people age, partly due to its anti-inflammatory and antioxidant effects. Curcumin is the main active ingredient in Turmeric. The same researchers also noted greater contentment and positive moods. (4)
Don’t Forget the Piperine!
A compound called piperine, found in black pepper, increases the amount of curcumin you absorb from Turmeric by up to 20 times (5). It may vary according to the quality of the Turmeric and black pepper, as well as the amounts of curcumin and piperine you ingest. Nambu’s Hi-Health Formula contains a black pepper extract that standardizes the quality and quantity of piperine.
Hi-Health Formula is PHONEME INFUSED™ with sound vibrations that support self-esteem, resilience and willpower. These are essential ingredients for achieving your goals.
Shreem Brzee Formula is PHONEME INFUSED™ with the sound vibrations of the Ultimate Wealth Mantra, Shreem Brzee. The mantra invokes Lakshmi to eliminate poverty consciousness while attracting wealth. Infusing herbs with mantras is an ancient Ayurveda and Siddha Medicine practice that inspired the birth of Nambu Botanicals.
We all know that emotions are experienced in both the mind and the body, and that most emotions activate some kind of physical response. For example, anxiety can cause a sense of pain or tightness in the chest for some people, while for others, anxiety can trigger an upset stomach or tension in the neck or shoulders.
For those of us who experience powerful emotions -- and those associated physical responses -- our lives can often feel “ruled by our moods.”
Therefore, making a conscious effort to control negative emotions and thoughts can reap great benefits, including the power to transform all types of relationships and an increased capacity to attain personal and professional goals.
Here are six ways to take control of your emotions -- and your life -- using lifestyle modification techniques, nutrition, and PHONEME-INFUSED™ herbs.
Gut Health & Probiotics
Emotional health and gut flora are closely associated. The use of probiotics has been shown to reduced unnecessary anxiety and emotions.
According to Harvard Health, “changes in intestinal bacteria may play a role in neuropsychiatric conditions such as anxiety or depression. The intestine has its own separate nervous system and generates many of the same neurotransmitters (including acetylcholine and serotonin) that the brain generates. These neurotransmitters are very important in promoting gut motility, and too much or too little of them may result in constipation or diarrhea. Similarly, we believe that the brain and the gut can talk to each other. Therefore, it is possible that anxiety and depression may trigger abdominal pain or other GI symptoms. It is also possible that gastrointestinal conditions such as chronic abdominal pain or constipation might also result in anxiety or depression.”
Research reveals great benefits for the immune system and reduced frequency of illnesses through the use of probiotics. Further results reveal greater connectivity between parts of the brain associated with emotional and cognitive processing. To boost your probiotic intake, consider Kefir, a delicious drink which comes in a form of milk or water, and it is loaded with probiotics through culturing.
You are less likely to experience mood swings when you stay “grounded” in your body. Make a conscious, daily effort to connect with your physical body through the practice of yoga, tai chi or qi gong, or simply by getting out in nature and connecting with the earth. Grounding reduces emotional anxiety and negative thoughts, thereby helping to regulate your mind.
Meditation is becoming increasingly popular -- and for good reason. Even a few minutes per day can be extremely beneficial to your physical, mental and emotional health. If you don’t have a meditation practice, experience this wonderful audio created by Nambu Herbs founder, Dr. Pillai. The “Ah” Meditation uses a quantum sound frequency that specifically moves the creative energies found in the sex center, located around the area of the sex organs, up into the center located between the two eyes and eyebrows (area of pineal gland). By moving this energy, you shift its expression from creating new life into creating other desires, such as a home, job or relationship.
Try this technique to calm your emotions: Breathe through the nose, and imagine your abdomen as a balloon. And then, fill the balloon as it expands in all directions. Your emotions and breath are connected. Negative thoughts will also affect your breathing. The respiratory system has a way of suppressing negative emotions so you don’t have to feel them. For you to make your breath fuller and very deep, allow your chest fully expand after your abdomen breathes in.
This is an anti-aging herb which is also known as Giloy. This herb is very effective in boosting the body’s immune system and it’s ability to enhance moods. Our GUDUCHI is PHONEME-INFUSED™ with sound specific sound vibrations that cleanse and clear the throat chakra, empowering us with the ability to speak our truth with calm and clarity.
Tulsi is a remarkable adaptogenic herb that minimizes stress and anxiety. Our LOVE & GRACE Tulsi nourishes the Heart Chakra to increase love and compassion and reduces the stress hormone cortisol. This herb which is also known as Holy Basil oxygenates all your organs and improves moods.
