Kick Off With Mind Power

Date Posted:14 January 2015 

After a refreshing holiday both the mind and body can feel more refreshed and invigorated. This week we explore how to maintain and enhance this mind power to help you kick-off for a great year.

Getting the balance

Just like a car runs well with carefully supplemented fuel so does our mind and body. I’d like to share with you a story about a client who made this patently clear to me early on in my career.

A gentleman was bought along for a consultation as he was recovering from a series of strokes – 5 in all.  This was resulting in sleepiness during the day and difficulty with comprehension, speech and moving about.

After feeling his pulse I became curious as to what would happen as we brought in strategies to help balance and energise.

To put it simply the pulse showed that his internal wiring had been seriously overloaded and was low in power so that messages between the mind and the body were sometimes getting through and sometimes not. As the brain is very agile and able to create new pathways, when one pathway is compromised I was interested to see what would happen with the adjustment of diet and lifestyle to soothe the nervous system, along with some carefully chosen herbals.

What happened

His lovely wife was happy to adjust his diet and lifestyle to support his recovery by providing a Vata pacifying diet and Vata balancing lifestyle choices

In addition I carefully chose herbals to minimise the after-effects of the overload, to support the repair process and increase energy resources to the mind and body.  Here is what I chose and why

Rejuvenation Plus to help the body resist the effects of aging. This product helps repair free radical damage and support cellular regeneration. It also helps convert the food that is eaten into energy, so that over time one can draw on more energy each day.

Premium Amla Berry which is the most sought-after fruit among the Ayurvedic herbals. It is considered an elixir that promotes health, longevity and overall balance for all body types. It is especially nourishing for muscular development, digestion, skin and eyes. I hoped that this would elevate his mental and physical energy resources.

Intelligence Plus helps with rejuvenation of brain cells, supports mental clarity and ability to focus, while reducing mental stress and increasing feelings of confidence and happiness.

The outcome

On the follow-up visit two weeks later the wife was beaming and the gentleman was noticeably more alert and easy on his feet. This combination was working really well!  He was now able to wake up and get out of bed in the morning and was alert through the day. He was even playing the piano once again!

If you would like to stimulate your own mental energy, creativity and alertness  (regardless of age), remove clouded mental functioning and develop mental resilience then Youthful Mind is a more recent product that I now also recommend.

Wishing you the bliss of an energised mind and body this week
