Diseases today are born of exhaustion – both biochemical and nerve exhaustion; for this reason, one of the most unnoticed, yet consistent forces affecting our health, is stress and its debilitating effects (over time) on our nerves and immunity. Many people live in high stress lifestyles, via traveling to work ,the work itself, noise/air pollution, etc. We malnourish our bodies with devitalized foods, thus depriving our nerves of the nourishment they require.. Relationships today are fraught with potentially stressful situations, whether it be familial, inter-personal, marital, or especially, societal. All of these can and do have a markedly diminishing effect on the nerves, causing us to be tense ,irritable ,moody, unable to sleep at night, and then carry out the next day’s duties and obligations. Irritated nerve filaments can, over time, initiate first hyper, then ultimately, hypo functioning of various organs, glands and systems, thus leading to a variety of ailments. When our nerves are depleted, we feel stressed, our sleep suffers, as do our relationships; our gut may be tied up in knots, constipation may ensue. We feel tired and drag ourselves out of bed, looking for the quick fix in a cup or three of coffee; tempers may flare, leading to ‘road-rage’, and most ominously of all, we may feel that there is no way out of our situation – whether a student, a disgruntled worker or a housewife looking after equally frustrated children. In all of these cases, we need to look after and feed our nerves. In addition to the holidays considered, or the day off work spent relaxing, it is imperative that we provide definite and appropriate support to the nerve force. This support comes in many forms – it could be the B-vitamins that are essential for proper nerve tone and function; it could also be found in Lecithin, a substance that helps to rebuild the myelin sheath surrounding the nerve filament. However, one of the best sources of (phyto) nutrients is found in the combination of roots and herbs in our ELECTRA. This formula is designed to not only provide immediate relief for stress, but to gradually help restore the nerves, thanks to the generous amounts of easily assimilable organic salts of Calcium, Magnesium and Silica. These herbs also provide specific compounds that soothe and sedate an overactive mind and body. St. John’s Wort and Scullcap – two of the stellar ingredients found herein,are of immense benefit in nerve exhaustion,poor sleep, volatility of the nerves, and even mild to moderate cases of depression. Roots such as Valerian promote a deep and sound sleep,while others such as Motherwort and Mistletoe calm the heart. This formula can be used over long periods of time to act as the aforementioned restorative for the nerves; equally, it can be used for the short term, in cases of disrupted sleep due to moments of stress. In either case, it is safe, effective and sure in its effect.
