Every morning, I wake up in paradise. At night I stare into stars from my bed, and I watch the moon rise over the mountainous landscape that has been holding this sacred space for over 20 million years. I am blessed and grateful for this heavenly sanctuary that lends its spirit to my passions.
I find my morning routine to be of utmost importance in setting such a positive tone for my day. I've become deeply interested in preventive wellness solutions through my work with immune-challenged children and have learned to call upon adaptogens, superfoods, super herbs, and the ancient medicinal aspects of all manner of plant extracts.
First thing in the morning, I use these medicinal essences to align my cells with "thrive potential." In these times, we each have the opportunity to choose our own best practices for being alive and thriving. Returning to what has been utilized for millennia, tried and tested, ancestrally approved, feels like progress for me.
I have found that adaptogens help me anchor myself to the present. I prefer to ease into solids and start the day with a potent powerhouse of adaptogenic supertonics and healthy fats instead.
Adaptogens are medicinal plants that have been through extreme challenges and, through that process, have refined their medicinal properties and mastered the balancing act of existence. These unique herbs have evolved sophisticated abilities through direct experience adapting to stressors over extended periods of time.
These plants assist in recovery from chronic inflammation, overextended adrenals, and fatigue.
