Adapting to Stress
Some herbs act as adaptogens, which means that they help your body to cope better with stress. They can go a step further than this and balance hormone levels naturally. Some can also be anti-inflammatory and balance blood sugar levels. A few examples of adaptogens are ashwagandha, licorice root, and holy basil or Tulsi. It’s best to speak to a Functional Medicine or Integrative Medicine doctor before taking any herbal supplements, especially if you’re on any medication or have any preexisting health conditions. An Integrative Medicine Health Coach or Ayurveda Practice can be very helpful in determining what approach is right for you to consider.
