The Yoga of Sound

October 29th, 2007

by Russill Paul

Medical research now validates immense physiological benefits from chanting: lowered blood pressure, stabilized heart rate, improved Circulation and the production of endorphins, which are the body’s natural painkillers and mood enhancers. Music, too, is wonderfully therapeutic and employed in a wide range of applications today, including the treatment of Alzheimer’s, sleep disorders and Autism. The therapeutic use of music is a tradition that can be traced back to Hippocrates, the father of Western medicine. Medical science also validates the benefits of Meditation in supporting healing processes that are preventive as well as curative.

Now, when you take the tremendous appeal of Yoga and the growing millions of practitioners across America, and you combine all these approaches (chanting + therapeutic music + Meditation + Yoga), you get The Yoga of Sound, (New World Library, May 2006), a holistic and evolutionary approach that addresses several unhealthy conditions of modern living and offers a “sound solution” to its problems.

Bedtime Rituals and Herbs for Insomnia

October 29th, 2007

Insomnia is a symptom, not a disease. Insomnia can have many causes, but the biggest cause is due to stress. Stress related to work, school, health or family concerns. Depression is the second biggest cause. The use of stimulants, including caffeine, alcohol, nicotine or other over-the-counter or prescription medications will also cause Insomnia.

Prescription drugs, including some Antidepressant, High Blood Pressure and steroid medications, can interfere with sleep. Many over-the-counter medications, including some brands of aspirin, decongestants and weight loss products, contain caffeine and other stimulants. Change in your environment or work schedule and even long-term use of sleep medications will actually interupt your sleep cycle. Medical problems, including fibromyalgia or complex diseases of the nerves and muscles can make it very difficult to fall asleep and stay asleep.

Behavioral Insomnia, occurs when you worry excessively about not being able to sleep well and try too hard to fall asleep. Most people with this condition sleep better when they’re away from their usual sleep environment.

Brain Lightening…What is your Opinion of this Supplement?

October 29th, 2007

Question: from Stephen

How does your Neuro Natural compare to Brain Lightning?

Answer: from Warren Matthews of Xtend-Life

The Brain Lightening product seems like a reasonable one, but compared to our Neuro-Natural Memory it is quite weak and very expensive!

Let me try to put this into perspective:

Brain Lightening:

  • Costs $110.00 for a bottle of 90 capsules although it is available at a discounted price of $69.95 plus shipping of $5.95 = $75.90. The recommended daily dose is 3 capsules.
  • It has 488mgs of active ingredients per capsule.
  • It has 60mcg of their key ingredient Huperzine A in three capsules.
  • The amounts of many of the active ingredients are not disclosed.

Xtend-Life Neuro Natural Memory

  • Costs $39.45 for a bottle of 90 enteric coated tablets, or $35.50 per bottle and free shipping (2 bottles or more) if you are a member of the loyalty program. The recommended dose is 6 tablets per day.
  • It has 740mgs of active ingredients per tablet. More than 50% extra.
