How to SAFELY Re-boot Your Brain when You Are Exhausted
In a fast-paced modern society modern society, mental fatigue is fast becoming a real problem for many people. Moreover, this is having a major impact on a number of fronts, including:
- Workplace safety standards
- Productivity and efficiency being compromised
- Relationships becoming stressed because a lack of attention
- Levels of depression rising alarmingly
What many people seem to know, is that the roots of mental fatigue can be traced back to a totally unexpected cause: an imbalance in the levels of sodium and potassium in human brain cells. These two elements are involved in a process called osmosis – which, in this case, is the chemical process that transports these chemicals into, and out of your live brain cells.
If we are subjected to extended levels of mental stress, the ratio between potassium and sodium on the inside, and the outside of each of millions of brain cells tend to go out of balance. The natural reaction to this by most people is to look for a “quick-fix”, by way of popping a pill (from something fairly innocuous, such as Disprin, to Dextroamphetamine – a psychostimulant drug which is known to produce increased wakefulness and focus in association with decreased fatigue and decreased appetite.)
In modern times, the list has expanded though, and can now include anti-depressants, cigarette smoking, cannabis and hard drugs such as heroin and cocaine.
Surely, in our now enlightened, advanced modern society, a better solution should be sought outside of these potentially dangerous routes? Well, there is some good news: two unique paths that we can follow, both of which about which very little is really known. Read on for a big surprise!
The first is:
Also Biochemic cell salts aka Tissue Salts or Cell Salts are alternative remedies based on inorganic salts elaborated by Dr. Wilhelm Heinrich Schüßler (1821-1898). Although moderately diluted (3X-6X), they are not classed as homeopathic, because they are not purported to act according to the "like cures like" principle of homeopathy. Nonetheless, they are commonly advocated by people who also advocate similar alternative medicine remedies, including homeopathy.
They are a group of 12 minerals that SHOULD be present in our bodies, if they are in perfect balance, as a pre-requisite for perfect health and well-being. These salts are found naturally in the earth's rocks and soil, and are present in food grown organically in mineral-rich soils.
But, again, with the fast pace of modern life, and the so-called “time-saving” junk, and processed foods, many people tend to consume, over time, our bodies tend to become very depleted. For the problem of mental fatigue then, it is suggested that the tissue salts considered are: Kalium Phosphate (Kali Phos) and Natrium Muriaticum (Nat Mur).
The first, Kali phos, acts as a brain and nerve nutrient and nerve tonic.
“Table Salt” (Sodium Chloride) is a constituent contained within every part of the human body, with its primary function being a “distributor of water” - resetting the osmotic flow of water, and in this case the human brain. But in this case, plain “table salt” is not the answer. Why should this be? The reason is, for the salt to do its job, it must be made available in an “attenuated” form – attenuated simply meaning: “reduced in strength”
Having highlighted a highly effective, but what seems to be little-known solution, let us move on to another way of resetting the Sodium/Potassium ratio:
A considerable level of controversy exists concerning brainwave activity and the role it plays in affecting our thoughts, feelings and actions. Excitingly, it has been reliably established that certain audio levels with embedded binaural beats can alter our brain waves, which in turn alters the electro-chemical environment after the brain.
After an extended period of stressful activity, our brainwaves are highly active (called Beta brainwaves ) - inhibiting the transport of the chemical elements sodium and potassium into the brain cells, resulting in an imbalance between the two. A unique, 15 minute solution is to reduce the fast Beta brain waves by listening to specially prepared and recorded Theta brainwaves.
