6 great ways to maintain healthy nerves
The nervous system is responsible for controlling the larger part of our vital functions (breathing, heartbeats, hunger, thirst, posture, etc.) as well as for our emotions (happiness, sadness, etc.), it is imporant to strengthen it naturally to ensure a good quality of life.
Three Beneficial Foods
There are some specific foods that positively regulate our nervous system:
- Baker’s yeast: Thanks to its B vitamins, it is also a good reinforcer of the central nervous system, and therefore it can help improve cases of depression, anxiety, stress, apathy, or lack of appetite. We can eat it in powder form, mixed with juice or yogurt, or in tablet form, if we don’t like the slightly bitter flavor. Some brands sell it debittered to soften its flavor. If we take it with food, it will improve nutrition assimilation.
- Oatmeal: This delicious cereal acts as a nervous system stabilizer. It calms irritable states and mild anxiety, relieves insomnia, including in small children, and increases mental performance. It is strangely a food that both relaxes and gives energy. We can eat it cooked, sweet or salty, boiled with milk with a little cinnamon, or with creamed vegetables. We can also drink oatmeal “milk”.
- Bee Pollen: Pollen is a superfood. It equalizes the blood pH and nervous system function thanks to its B vitamins. We will take a tablespoon of ground pollen every morning, mixed with a bit of water, juice, or yogurt.
Alterations in the nervous system, such as insomnia, anxiety, hyperactivity, worry, or panic attacks can be symptoms of a lack of magnesium in our bodies.
It is recommended, in these cases, to daily consume foods rich in magnesium, such as:
- Cocoa: Dark chocolate has almost 500 mg of magnesium per 3.5 ounces.
- Green leafy vegetables: Swiss chard, lettuce, spinach.
- Fruit: Banana, apricot, avocado, melon, plum.
- Nuts: Almonds, cashews, hazelnuts, walnuts.
- Legumes: Peas, lentils.
- Cereal: Brown rice, millet, oats.
We can also opt for a magnesium supplement. In this case, we will take three grams every day, orally, three times a day so the body can absorb it properly, which is one gram per meal.
The following medicinal plantsact as relaxants and boosters of the nervous system. We can take them as infusions or extracts, or use as air fresheners in our home, and on our skin as essential oils:
- Lemon balm
- Ginkgo biloba
Sunlight is an excellent regulator of the nervous system and it also provides us with vitamin D. To benefit from it, we can sunbathe for 10 to 15 minutes per day, preferably in the morning or late afternoon.
Walking Barefoot in a Natural Environment
Walking barefoot on moist earth, dewy grass, beach sand, in a river, in the sea, etc.,during at least half an hour a day is the most economic and healthy way to balance our nervous system. In addition, it helps us to eliminate elctromagnetic radiation that we absorb in our body from continuous contact with electronic devices. We recommend that you test it out, as the results can be noticed from the first day.
Regular visits to check for nerve weaknesses should be part of your preventative care. When weak nerves are left undetected, injuries may occur and recovery time can be extended.
