Anthia is presenting on Sunday: How to Use Herbal Adaptogens in the Form of Teas, Tonics and in Food to Support the Stress Response When Treating Disease
Environmental stressors such as emotional stress trigger the cell danger response to cause illness. The cell danger response is a defense system that we have innately to protect us in times of need. However, when we are constantly stressed, the cell danger response is chronically activated and this can cause a cascade of problems.The healthful idea is to help manage the causative stress. Anthia Koullouros will be presenting easy and important ways in which we can do this.
Adaptogens is a term used in herbal medicine for whole-body tonics as they increase the resistance to physical, environmental, emotional or biological stressors and help to restore normal physiological functions to the body. Adaptogens work on the body’s glandular system – the hypothalamus-pituitary-adrenal axis dysregulation (HPA-D), not just the adrenal glands. HPA-D affects nearly every cell and tissue in the body and this is why the use of adaptogens are so important.
Adaptogens have been used for centuries in Chinese and Ayurvedic healing traditions, but they’re having a renaissance today. Adaptogens are prescribed for:
• Intensive exercise
• Endurance and poor recovery
• Post-surgery support
• Adrenal exhaustion
• Lack of sleep
• Chemical exposure
• Poor immune health
• Basically any chronic illness
Anthia will present the benefits of using adaptogens, how you can use them in your everyday life and why they are so important.
With stress being the number one contributor to our modern-day health crisis, learning easy and practical methods how to combat, overcome and manage stress and its links to ill-health is essential.
