Stress , ahh stress.. its such a f*cker .
basically if you aren’t “Eating well, getting proper rest, staying active, writing down what you’re grateful for and maintaining social connection” you’re stressed.. so we’re basically all in chronic stress…
- Auto-immune diseases
- Chronic Fatigue
- Common Cold
- Hormone Imbalance
- Irritable Bowel Disease
- Thyroid Conditions
- Weight Loss Resistance
and the symptoms you have high cortisol ( we all do you don’t even needs this friggin list )
- backaches and headaches.
- weight gain (especially on stomach and hips)
- low sex drive
- constant infections or colds
- sugar cravings
- weak muscles
- decrease in fertility
- high blood pressure
- acne and frequent skin infection
Shit .. right
but there are herbal remedies to allow your body to regulate and cope .. and these little treasures are called ADAPTOGENS .. and they do just that they ADAPT (oh gen?!? who’s gen.. whatever)
they “work a bit like a thermostat. When the thermostat senses that the room temperature is too high it brings it down; when the temperature is too low it brings it up. Adaptogens can calm you down and boost your energy at the same time without over stimulating.”
they also have no effects and can be used long term! unlike energetic super foods like cacao , which can strain the adrenals.
and unlike COFFEE they dont come with the crashing fatigue afterwards .
common supplemental adaptogens are holy basil, rhodiola, mushroom blends , liquorice root , maca and astragalus root .
so if you’re fatigued , overwhelmed or training hard (please stop early running people, it makes me feel laze-a-hee)
get shopping for these adaptogens .. This is a slideshow below for all the computer illiterate (hi parents 🙂 )
