Do you want to feel permanently calm ?

In the previous health guide you got  my Top 10 Lifestyle Changes to Manage Stress and well as the table to identify if you are chronically stressed and/or have adrenal fatigue.

And if you are or do, the odds are, you probably can not even “think” or “act” towards implementing lifestyle changes.  It is simply too overwhelming.

This is why the very first thing you need to do is to adapt yourself to this situation using: Adaptogene plants and Medicinal Mushrooms.

are a unique class of healing plants that help balance, restore and protect the body.  They should be your choice no. 1 when it comes to stress.

An adaptogen helps you respond to any influence or stressor, normalising the physiological functions. This is why we call them “adaptogens” as they help us “to adapt” to the current state of stress while at the same time healing and repairing on many different levels.

The most renowned adaptogens are the Ginsengs :
asian or panax ginsengs, american, siberian (Eleuthero) , ashwagandha (indian ginseng), rhodiola, licorice root, astragalus…

All adaptogens have the following 3 virtues in common. They are:

  • major stress protectors
  • immune system boosters and modulators
  • holistically harmonising the body, the mind and the soul

When choosing an adaptogen, you need to take into consideration:

  • the level and type of stress you are feeling
  • your gender (some adaptogens are more “masculin” or more “feminine”)
  • the right dosage for you
  • the source (quality is of utmost importance here).  Low quality supplements simply do not work !


Medicinal mushrooms come in the 2nd place, right after adaptogens when it comes to stress. They are fascinating powerhouses of nutrients and compounds that provide amazing health benefits for humans. A single type of mushroom can contain hundreds of beneficial bioactive substances.

There are many different species, the most popular are:
reishi, cordyceps, maitake, shitake, agaricus blazei, turkey tail, lion’s mane

Each species has different healing properties however all of them

  • are immune system boosters and modulators
  • are major stress protectors
  • have anti-aging and anti-cancer properties
  • are holistically harmonising – the body, the mind and the soul


It is important to note that the continual release of glucocorticoids (such as cortisol) can suppress the secretion of growth hormones. There’s actually a syndrome called stress dwarfism in children who are so psychologically stressed that growth is markedly impaired. 

Do note, the above mentioned supplements are for adults only.  I will address the natural health for children soon in another post.

Let me know what has worked best for you.
