Lesson 9: The Nervous System (page 19 of 19)

For the alcoholic or addict, nutritional supplemention is not a replacement for “talk” or “group” therapy, such as Alcoholics Anonymous, but rather an adjunct to such therapy.



The nervous system is the first body system to develop in the human embryo—an indication of its importance to the rest of the body. It is sometimes referred to as the “master system” because of the regulatory effect which it exerts over the other body systems. The human nervous system is one of the systems most likely to suffer as a result of poor nutrition, abuse and stress. Nutritional support is therefore tremendously important today, especially considering the typical onslaught of junk foods which the body must contend with. Evidence is mounting rapidly that many of the common problems that plague the nervous system can be helped with the judicious use of herbs and other dietary supplements.If you have six or more of the following indications, you may consider nutritional aid to the nervous system:

 Lack of energy
 Regular consumption of alcohol
 Frequent mood swings
 Bags under eyes
 Poor concentration or memory
 Stressful lifestyle
 Cravings for sweets, salt or junk foods
 Feeling low, uninterested, or depressed
 Too little sleep or restless sleep
 Menopausal concerns
 Hair loss
 Difficulty in maintaining ideal weight
 Less than 2 bowel movements per day
 Lack of appetite
 Unsettled, apprehensive, pressured
 Muscle cramps or spams
 Caffeinated beverage (16 oz.) daily
 Feeling out of control
 Suffer from anxiety or worry
 Easily irritated or angered
 Don’t exercise regularly
