The “Jet Set” for your Nervous System
Last weekend I sent out a quick email on the three formulas, Joi, Ese, and Top – Sunrider’s nervous system trio. At that time I was right in the middle of preparations for my son’s wedding and it was one of those times when I just couldn’t do one more thing.
When life throws extra stress at me, I always take additional Joi, Ese and Top to support my nervous system. They keep me centered so I can operate from that place in inner stillness rather than from the chaos that often accompanies stressful times. The wedding was beautiful and the mother of the groom was focused and calm.
Now that the wedding is over, I can take the time to help you understand why these formulas (nicknamed the “Jet Set”), are so important.
When most people think of nerves, they think of pain. And when the term nervous system comes up, they think of nerves carrying pain signals. But, your nervous system does much more than carry pain signals. Your nervous system is like the internet; it’s a highway for the transmission of information throughout your body. The nervous system acts as the body’s communication network. It is responsible for processing all types of information. It coordinates muscle activity, thoughts, learning, memory, speech, and even emotions. There are many branches of the nervous system that cooperate to sustain every function in your body.
The central nervous system consists of the brain and spinal cord. Billions of neurons in your brain store, receive and analyze information. They provide the basis of your personality, your moods, emotions, and your consciousness and unconscious thoughts. The spinal cord carries messages between the brain and the rest of your body.
The peripheral nervous system connects the outlying areas of your body with the central nervous system via sensory receptors. It consists of the somatic and autonomic portions of your nervous system.
The somatic (voluntary) nervous system supports voluntary muscle movements. It also carries information from eyes, ears, skin and muscles to and from the central nervous system.
The autonomic (involuntary) nervous system consists of two parts, the sympathetic and the parasympathetic. These systems regulate organs and glands automatically-without any voluntary input from you.
Can you understand why they call the nervous system the master controller? It is ultimately responsible for everything that goes on in your body. Whether it’s your heart, lungs and muscles kicking in to help you run a race, or your immune system flooding your bloodstream with antibodies to protect you from the latest virus, it is the nervous system that is sending and receiving the signals that make it all possible. And just as cable and fiber optic lines need to be maintained to ensure clear communication, the highways for your nervous system need to be maintained to ensure optimal health and well being. How can you support that?
The elements of your nervous system are coated with a lipid layer, called myelin, which insulates your nervous system. When myelin breaks down, you can experience any number of symptoms like weakness, chronic pain, and diminished vision. Other symptoms of a stressed nervous system are anxiety, sleeplessness, poor memory, and lack of focus. Have you ever experienced any of these?
In today’s world of high stress coupled with nutrient-deficient food, environmental toxins, and electromagnetic chaos, our nervous systems take an unusual beating. Some of the worst culprits are electromagnetic interferences that I call EM pollution (cell phones, computers, microwaves, radar, high voltage towers, etc.). They are everywhere and they wreak havoc with your nervous system. It’s one reason I devoted a whole chapter to the subject in my book, The Pure Cure: A Complete Guide to Freeing Your Life from Dangerous Toxins. You’ll find the introduction to that chapter at the end of the newsletter.
Anything you can do to support your nervous system (the master controller) will support everything else in your body. As a general rule, you’ll feel calmer and more at ease with life; you’ll experience less pain and fatigue; and you’ll have an improved ability to focus and concentrate when you need to.
One great way to stimulate your nervous system is to write — not type at a computer — but write with pen and paper. The act of writing requires that you use all the major components of your conscious and sensory nervous pathways; it requires the use of numerous sensory receptors, peripheral nerves, synaptic connections, and nerve tissue — especially when you make an effort to write neatly. Wow! Writing is also an excellent way to get clarity. Drawing is equally beneficial for the nervous system. Many people who make a commitment to writing/drawing on a regular basis find that they respond to life with greater ease.
Writing and drawing are good exercises for your nervous system, but you also need to feed your nervous system. That’s why Dr. Chen developed the nervous system trio (Jet Set). Joi, Ese and Top support different parts of the nervous system. They were designed to be taken together.
Joi nourishes the nervous system with special emphasis on the joints and muscles so that you feel balanced. Joi helps with many musculoskeletal aches and pains; it also contributes to mental sharpness.
Ese nourishes your natural ability to maintain concentration, clear focus, and mental clarity. You can think of Ese as food for thought.
Top promotes mental and emotional balance with an enhanced sense of overall well-being, enabling you to think clearly with heightened focus.
Like many of the Sunrider formulas, the Jet Set come from ancient formulas. When eaten with Sunrider’s basic food program, Joi, Ese and Top help to maintain mental and spiritual balance. Made with only the choicest herbs harvested at their peak, these concentrated herbal foods help with pain while optimizing your ability to think clearly and maintain mental focus.
They are ideal for students who need to concentrate for extended periods of time, for people who want to improve their cognitive ability, and for those of us who can benefit from a little extra support under stress at work or in everyday life. The Jet Set are a regular part of my supplement routine. I take them every day — extra when I’m under more stress. Here is my son and his new wife. I’m a proud mother.
Pure Cure, Chapter 3 segment: “Electromagnetic smog is a major cause of health problems in our modern world. It is invisible, silent, odorless, and tasteless; and unless we have become sensitized to it-often to the point of becoming sick-we are unaware of its presence. We are surrounded by a sea of electromagnetic frequencies unprecedented in the history of the human race.
The human body is an electrical system. Nearly every biological function depends on electrical signals. EM pollution disrupts the body’s electromagnetic field and creates chaos and confusion to the point where cellular communication is impaired… Read more from the Pure Cure: A Complete Guide to Freeing Your Life from Dangerous Toxins
