◄ What are chakras?

Chakras are energy centers in different parts of the human body. Each chakra has a different focus and energizing or activating it has different results. The seven chakras most commonly known are the crown chakra, the forehead chakra, the throat chakra, the heart chakra, the solar plexus chakra, the sacral chakra, and the root chakra. For more information about each chakra, see the Glossary.

◄ How do these supplements affect the chakras? How will I know if they are working?

Disease can show up in the human energy field corresponding to the chakras, or energy centers, before it manifests in the physical. Healthy chakras can contribute to a healthy body, on all levels – physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual. Nambu Botanicals are a series of herbal formulas that specifically and uniquely target the various chakras or energy centers in the body, thereby supporting health on all levels.

You will know the herbal supplements are working if you feel better, think more clearly, have more energy, are more efficient, feel healthier, or something similar. Individual results will vary, and results will vary according to the supplement you are taking.

◄ What are phonemes and how do they affect these supplements?

Phonemes are the smallest unit of sound in a spoken word and they are specific sound vibrations. Each phoneme carries within it different intelligence and effect. Nambu Botanicals infuse specific appropriate phonemes into the various supplements during production, to increase their potency, effectiveness, and usefulness to you.


Some facts about phonemes:

Studies in linguistics show a relationship between language and the mind or intelligence. Phonemes (the smallest unit of sound in a spoken word) are the building blocks of language. Our ability to perceive and think is a process facilitated by phonemes, and phonemes and language constitute the mind.

Each phoneme carries within it a specific form of intelligence.

Phonemes are involved in creating the overall development of the mental/psychological, intuitive, sensory and biological faculties.

◄ Would it be helpful for me meditate or use any certain mantras while taking these supplements?
Yes. It is always helpful to meditate! Any type of meditation can help you make your supplements more effective because your body will be operating more efficiently as a result of the meditation. If you want, you can also add a mantra practice to your meditation that focuses on either the brain chakra if you are taking Enlightenment Formula, or focuses on the navel chakra if you are taking Hi-Health Formula. You can easily find such mantras on meditation websites or in You Tube clips.
◄ Can I take these supplements while using other vitamins, supplements or prescription medications?
Yes. If you have any questions, you should always check with your health care provider.
◄ Do you sell these supplements in powdered or seed forms, so I can make tea out of them?
Not at this time. It is possible that we might do so at some point in the future.
◄ Can I take more than one supplement at a time?
For example, can I take Enlightenment Formula and Hi-Health Formula in the same day?
Also can two or more different supplements be taken together at the same time each day, or do they need to be taken 30 or more minutes apart from each other?
You can take more than one supplement at a time. You may take them together or separately. You can take them with or apart from food, although we suggest that you take the Hi-Health Formula with food.
◄ Do these supplements come from India, or are they prepared and packaged in the United States?
Although knowledge about these supplements comes from India, all Nambu Botanical products are produced in the United States under strict production protocols, meeting GMP-certification requirements.
