Our nervous system is similar to the electricity network of our homes, our nerve fluid acting as the electrical current. When the nerve endings get worn down and the protective covering is no longer in place, these naked nerve endings spark and leap like live wires, and we feel as frazzled as they look.
There are quite a few nerve foods that can help repair and feed the nervous system, for instance, non-active yeast flakes, spirulina and whole grains, particularly organic oats and wheat germ, which are very rich in B vitamins. B vitamins are vital because the immune system “eats up” the acetylcholine receptors that are neurotransmitters, and B vitamins are able to remake them.
Celery, courgette, avocados, lettuce, carrots and pumpkin are supreme nerve foods and can be juiced, steamed or feed the nervous system whilst other nerve food suggestions include smoothies of carrot juice, avocado and romaine lettuce. Whole almonds, sesame seeds, wheat germ with added cinnamon powder.
Avoid tea and alcohol as they stop thiamine (a B vitamin) assimilation, which is vital for the nervous system. Drink plenty of water as it helps the body in many ways, not least by balancing the function of the entire nervous system; it also greatly helps elimination on all levels.
Try our ‘Chamomile and Vervain’ formula for tailor-made nerve herbs and don’t forget a good strong cup of chamomile tea.
