Inflammation and disease are innately linked. This is a link we cannot ignore.
What we know to be true. Inflammation is your body’s response to stress.
An increasing body of evidence shows that chronic inflammation causes and advances many common diseases.
It's increasingly difficult to avoid or manage stress entirely. Your body views stressors broadly and does not limit causes to mental & emotional challenges - as we routinely refer to in conversations.
The causes of stress also expand to environmental and physical. Exposure to environmental toxicity, an imperfect diet, chronic but subtle food allergies / sensitivities, an imbalance of bacteria and fungi, and lifestyle issues like lack of sleep, too much or too little physical activity - are all stressors, and the list goes on.
Many people are unknowingly continuously running on empty with little energy available to maintain basic health. This is the strange new norm of “busy.”
Increasing evidence suggests that an underlying cause of major degenerative diseases, or in other words, the source of a disease’s manifestation in the body is inflammation.
Today, 1 in 2 people will have a chronic disease in their lifetime, 50% of people are using at least one toxic prescription drug, and only 10% of cancer is directly genetic – meaning that 90% is environmental. The four major diseases of our modern world, and equally the four main medical feats to overcome are coronary artery disease, diabetes, cancer, and Alzheimer's - all of which are born of the same seed: inflammation.
We can change this bleak outlook on our collective health and wellness through diet and holistic practices such as the use of adaptogenic herbs.
Adaptogens are a class of nontoxic healing plants that naturally and effectively regulate your endocrine, nervous and immune systems. This regulatory effect allows ones’ body to find and maintain optimal balance, returning itself to homeostasis.
An adaptogen is unlike traditional western pharmaceuticals in that they are nontoxic, have been used for thousands of years, grow naturally on our planet and instead of taking a one fits all approach to altering the body, they take a holistic approach and normalize physiologic function.
This means that they can do “both,” they have an amphoteric effect and can shift the body’s environment to create more of what it needs to find balance, or health. If the immune system is under active, adaptogens will enhance it, if it is overactive, adaptogens will re-set it to decrease overactivity.
Your body is an amazing machine that knows how to heal itself, it just needs some support.
You can heal your body naturally from the inside out and bring your body back to homeostasis.
