The more stable the systems in the body are, the more our bodily organs can function at optimal performance. The body’s built-in ‘regulator’ appropriately guides our body. Our bodies work on the sole principle of cause and reaction. For example, if the body is hot, sweat is produced. If the body is cold, shivering occurs. The body naturally prioritizes certain body systems that may need extra support. The principle of the ancient art of Zen is very similar, with the premise that everything should be in harmony and balance. When the body as a whole uses all of its systems in perfect agreement, health and vitality are achieved. The natural way Most people in the Western world have access to medical help, a rich and varied diet, and living conditions that protect them against the elements. Despite this, Western people suffer from more illnesses than people living in far less affluent conditions. Furthermore, modern Western diets, the use of recreational drugs, and prescription medicines also take their toll on health, making achieving equilibrium difficult. When one body system is compromised, a domino effect is created, with one system affecting the next. Many people are unaware that nature provides the solution in the form of herbs and nutrients called adaptogens. In fact, when analyzing the diet of many societies known for the health of their senior citizens, food high in adaptogenic and anti-oxidant properties is often a common factor that emerges. Holistic health aims to address both mind and body to promote health and vitality. Unfortunately, environmental factors such as pollution, sunlight, x-rays, smoking and alcohol consumption can disrupt the delicate balance the body tries so hard to maintain. What are adaptogens? Adaptogens are therapeutic properties contained within some plants. These active ingredients have been shown to have the ability to support all body systems and organs, thereby maintaining function within their normal range. They do this by encouraging natural balance in all body systems, from single cells to complex body systems like the cardiovascular, respiratory, metabolic, immune, endocrine, reproductive, brain and nervous system. With all systems and cells functioning as they should, the natural process of aging does not have to include all the trials and tribulations associated with growing older. True health and vitality can be retained while one ages provided that the body has the conditions (internal and external) necessary to maintain this. By including adaptogens in the diet and following a healthy lifestyle, all you need to develop as you age is wisdom! In more recent times, research has confirmed the ability of nature to support balance in the body. There are now many published clinical studies demonstrating the ability of a range of herbs to be natural adaptogens and support general balance and well-being. (Forgo I, Kayasseh L, Staub JJ. “Effect of a standardized ginseng extract on general well-being, reaction capacity, pulmonary function and gonadal hormones”. Medizinische Welt 1981; 32(19): 751-756).

In recent times, Panax ginseng has been shown to support general well-being, as well as support the cardiovascular system and help sustain hormonal balance.
