The Jost Sauer Recovery System
I developed my system by using Chinese medicine to reverse-engineer drug highs and also by analyzing why and how nutritional supplements, a healthy diet, therapeutic exercise, weight-lifting, martial arts, meditation, tai-chi, and yoga make you feel good. It all comes down to ‘chi’, to building chi and making chi move. So I extracted the most powerful aspect of each of those modalities and combined them to create an awesome and enjoyable recovery experience.
Recreational drugs create symptoms because they hijack your body’s internal energy (chi) resources to deliver the highs. But your internal resources are limited. This is why you keep needing more drugs to get the same results. It is also why the symptoms arise. The solution is simple: reverse the input / output ratio by putting more chi or energy in than you use up. This is the basis for extreme wellbeing, success, and happiness.
Don’t focus on the emotional, focus on the physical. Focussing on the mental issues in recovery, is like trying to fix the screen of your computer when the problem is software, it will go nowhere. My system goes straight to the backend, it uses five strategies to increase your energy or ‘chi’ input. These include orthomolecular therapy (vitamin therapy), a medicinal diet, cognitive embodiment (the use of specific postures to delete negative emotions and cravings), acupuncture and remedial massage, Chinese herbal formulas, my Chi Cycle therapeutic lifestyle (to imprint new habits and cycles over the old) and strategies to keep you moving purposefully towards visionary goals. All of this builds chi and creates chi-flow.
