For too long, the secret of adaptogenic herbs has been” bottled up,” so to speak. But the time has come for a new look and a new appreciation of the power of ancient healing. So I, the great AdaptoGenie, have emerged from centuries of concealment carrying with me secrets from the past and timely advice for the future. (No, I’m not just blowing smoke.)
So, why now?
Because I believe adaptogens may very well hold the key to restoring health and vitality to a world that presently seems destined toward disease or fated to feel bad. But before I tell you more about the secrets I bring, permit me to start with a little history lesson. (When you have lived as long as I have, history is kind of your thing.)
For millennia, man (and woman) has relied on the power of plants to heal from and ward off illness. Traditional herbal philosophies such as ayurveda from India, traditional Chinese medicine, Tibetan medicine, Greco-Arabic medicine, kampo from Japan and Native American medicine were all based on the amazing healing effects of plants. Many of the herbs held in highest esteem within these cultures were those with the broadest benefits. In fact, all of these traditions speak of seemingly miraculous plants with the ability to restore physical and emotional balance and harmony. Each of these cultures shared stories about the existence of certain plants with the astonishing ability to adjust their effects based on the individual needs of the person consuming them.
In Ayurveda, there is a class of herbs called “rasayana.” These herbs were believed to strengthen tissues and organs throughout the body. These herbs were said to revitalize and regenerate. They were plants that would slow down the aging process and build up one’s resistance to disease.
Chinese herbal medicine, has for centuries, studied plants and recorded their effects on health and wellness. The most cherished class of plants according to the Chinese philosophy is a group they labeled the Superior class. These are herbs that can be taken in large quantities, over an extended period of time, with no risk of ill effects. These superior plants are believed to enhance normal physiological functions rather than force a specific physical or emotional effect.
With the rise of allopathic medicine at or about the turn of the 20th century, the use of plant based remedies steadily declined and more and more health practitioners turned to synthetic drugs and surgical procedures to treat illness. So, for more than a century now, the remarkable benefits of adaptogens have gone underutilized and unappreciated. Well, I AdaptoGenie intend to change all of that.
