Living is stressful. We can enhance our capacity to handle stress through healthy living practices. Our ability to handle stress is based on our adaptive capacity. Our body, brain and psyche can handle a great amount of change, challenge and overt stress if we are healthy. However, stress drains our energy and if it is very acute or chronic, it can be draining to our energy reserves and can damage our systems. Stress can be debilitating if our adaptive energy is not restored and can precipitate accelerated aging or degeneration.
Tonic herbs have been used for many centuries to build adaptive energy and to replenish the energy spent handling stress. And here’s a great secret – successful people can handle stress where others cannot handle quite as much. A person with great stores of adaptive energy can take on more significant challenges and come through unscathed.
