One of the first signs of the process commonly called ‘premature aging’, is simply a decrease in nerve force.
Nerve force, very simply is the energy with which electrical signals go from one nerve cell to another.
When we find ourselves reacting to something slowly and with tiredness it means our nerve force is less.
If we are not able to react to sensory stimulation and enjoy things, our nerve force is less.
It is literally the speed at which the communication between the parts of the body is happening.
When our nerve force is low, the nervous signals feel like they’re going at the speed of postal mail versus email.
While there are many causes of it, from lack of enough sleep to fatigue caused by repetitive stress, to emotional shock caused by loss or grief, the human body is capable of adapting to a situation and maintaining nerve force.
A lot of the time food, drink, even herbs and other holistic treatments are used to artificially increase nerve force through adrenaline shocking the body, stressing the kidneys and surging the nervous system. The body reacts with chronic fatigue as it resists what it considers artificial stimulation as not something in the body’s memory of what’s natural.
For example, one such substance is MSG or mono-sodium glutamate, which is used in nearly all processed foods for its ability to increase nerve force giving a sort of quick but short-lived energy surge making the person eating become suddenly able to taste better. It increases nerve force so the report from the sense organs goes quickly to the brain and the brain says, “Yes, it’s yummy.” If you’ve ever craved eating something processed or that’s not cooked at home, chances are you’re craving MSG. But its list of harmful effects are legendary.
There are other additives to increase nerve force that are used in the processed food industry.
They all backfire sooner or later as the body learns to resist even them. Chronic allergies, histamine intolerance and auto-immune disorders are just some of the ways the body resists the intrusion.
The way to increase nerve force without pissing off the body and triggering off resistance, is to be nice and work with the body and the psyche, in ways considered friendly rather than forcing.
