adaptation is arguably the most important foundation to modern health and wellness. our environment is changing much faster than our mind-body can physiologically adjust or update. for example, stress is a biological response designed to help us fight or run from danger. stress response can't be updated as easily as computer software and is being smoked by the speed at which environment, technology, information and social structures are changing. this is why modern dysfunctions are dominated by anxiety, poor sleep quality, inflammation, toxicity, nutrient deficiency and weakened immune system.
adaptation at the rate we experience change requires mindfulness and work. there are many ways to help your mind-body adapt to the ever-evolving world we live in. a powerful way to promote adaptation is through supplementation with adaptogenic herbs and mushrooms that help decrease biological sensitivity to stress, helping maintain balance and efficiency. we will continue to experience internal and external stress, this is guaranteed. adaptogens help prevent a dramatic biological response to stress to protect our nervous system, cellular integrity, energy and resources. a 2009 pharmaceuticals journal publication on the effect of adaptogens on the central nervous system calls this protection the "stress protective effect".
