The Jost Sauer Recovery System

Recovery is highly complex because emotionality is interconnected with physical symptoms. The most effective recovery strategy is to focus first on the physical as this will automatically help restore emotional balance. Otherwise it can be an endless cycle of counseling with no resolution.

Recreational drugs create side-effects because they hijack your body’s internal energy (chi) stores to generate enhanced productivity or altered states. Once your energy output exceeds input, the physical and emotional symptoms arise. Simply reverse the energy ratio, symptoms disappear, and you create the basis for extreme wellbeing, success and happiness.

The Jost Sauer Recovery System uses five strategies to increase energy or ‘chi’ input which, in combination, heal addiction and create the basis for enhanced performance or altered states again. It includes orthomolecular therapy (vitamin therapy), a specific diet, cognitive embodiment (the use of specific postures to delete negative emotions and cravings), acupuncture, Chinese herbal formulas and remedial massage, the Chi Cycle therapeutic lifestyle (to imprint new habits and cycles over the old) and strategies to keep you moving purposefully forwards after quitting.

Jost arrived at this by using Chinese medicine to reverse-engineer drug highs and by analyzing the beneficial effects of nutrition, therapeutic exercise, weight-lifting, martial arts, meditation, tai-chi, yoga, and nutritional supplements. Then extracting the most powerful aspect of each to create an accelerated recovery program.
