It's no secret that life has been mighty tough for the majority of people these days. Whether these times have you suffering from stress, anxiety, lack of sleep, immune issues, or emotional trauma, adaptogenic herbs can offer a great helping hand to support you and your body during these trying times. Adaptogens produce an increase in bodily resistance and vitality. They help to support your body's metabolic function and they restore balance to your body and the systems within your body.
In this episode, we’ll explore exactly how the herbs, plants, & mushrooms work on all our body systems to help us maintain homeostasis, which is basically keeping your body in balance and stable within all of its systems. Then, we’ll talk about some of my favorite adaptogens that I use for myself: Reishi Mushrooms or Lingzhi (Ganoderma lucidum), Ashwagandha Root (Withania somnifera), and Tulsi or Holy Basil (Ocimum tenuiflorum).
These are the medicines that work for me. Yours might be something different, finding the right adaptogen for you can help support your nervous system, support your immune system and your body's overall function to keep you as strong as can be and ready to navigate all of the challenges that life throws at you.
