Chronic stress hurts.
It raises your blood pressure, it shuts down your digestion and it causes your brain cells to die.
My experience has been that stress levels have skyrocketed in our modern lifestyles and the result is that people are crashing.
The most important things you can do to deal with stress are lifestyle related and mental/emotional.
Such as downsizing your life (less stuff, less commitments), surrounding yourself with supportive relationships (disassociate from negative people), LAUGHING, having fun, exercise, meditation and breath work, and reframing (it’s not the situation, it’s our response to the situation).
All of these are critical at getting to the root of stress, and while you’re working on that, here are two pills that I find extremely helpful for managing stress.
While adaptogens are awesome, they are not magic, and while I use them extensively in my practice, just taking adaptogens without making the lifestyle changes listed above will NOT get to the root of the problem.
However, adaptogens are an extremely useful in our fast-paced lives and until you slow down, I believe they are a useful tool for just about everyone.
The biggest mistake with adaptogens (and most herbal medicines) is people not taking enough of them. While dosages will need to be individually decided based on your situation, generally speaking a maintenance dose is 2 capsules twice a day, or 1 teaspoon of tincture (liquid) once a day.
Stress is huge, and getting it under control is one of the single biggest things you can do to protect your quality of life, health and well-being. Consider using theanine and adaptogens and make the lifestyle changes to live a better life.
