Adapting to a new normal with the power of adaptogens

We welcome back Elita Mosseri founder of TULSI SPIRIT. Elita is here to guide you through the different adaptogens that can help you to adapt to a new normal. Adaptogens work to re-establish balance within the body.

We all currently find ourselves trying to navigate a new normal. Down below is a list of adaptogens that will support your adaptation process and allow you to use your unique ‘new normal’ situation to your benefit. Now that most lockdown restrictions have been lifted, you may find that instead of going back to what was once your ‘normal life’ a new normal is slowly but surely being established.

Whether it’s within your personal life, your work life or even the fact that you need to wear a mask when going to your favourite health food store. A new normal may throw out of order things that were in the making and ignite fears that were shut deep down.That’s because change is not an easy thing for anyone, especially when it happens that quickly and on such a large scale. But I encourage you to take this or any other new normal you find yourself in with a generous pinch of excitement. Because it is when life throws you off track that magic starts to happen.

To help you achieve exactly that, I have curated a list of adaptogens; herbs and mushrooms that are non-toxic and work non-specifically to re-establish balance within the body. They’re known for their ability to increase the body’s resistance to the damaging effects of stress and have many other exciting benefits. They would help you adapt to your own new normal, allowing you to find that special path and grow stronger.

At Tulsi Spirit – our mission is to encourage a change in the attitude towards stress and its impact on health and wellbeing.

The name of these incredible herbs and mushrooms, adaptogens, is derived from their ability to help you adapt to different situations in life and enhance your overall wellbeing. It’s thought that due to their accumulative effect, they work together to enhance one another’s benefits. Therefore, turning to them in these sorts of situations can make a difference.

Adaptogens can support you during such a transition in many ways, so I divided this adaptation method into two levels. The first uses the quality of adaptogens to increase the body’s ability to resist the damaging effects of stress and support sleep and relaxation; while the second will help you energise from within and tap into your creative self to make the situation work to your benefit.

Tulsi Spirit ethically sources high quality adaptogens from India, the USA and the pristine forests of Northern Europe. They are collected at their peak and processed using special cold-drying and cold-milling techniques to protect their heat-sensitive enzymes. Our mission is to encourage a change in the attitude towards stress and its impacts on health and wellbeing as well as to preserve ancient medicines and support the people who cultivate them, like our trusted growers, while giving back to their communities and to the environment.

Chaga Mushrooms
Strengthen your overall system using the king of mushrooms – Chaga. Chaga originates from Northern countries where it was traditionally taken to assist the body and mind in dealing with the harsh conditions. Chaga is also full of quality antioxidants, so taking it when things aren’t going as planned would support your overall wellbeing and allow you to respond better and quicker to the changing situation.

Shitake Mushrooms
Introduce superfoods: use Shiitake to detox and support your skin after being at home more than usual. Containing 7 vital amino acids, Shiitake is the ultimate supplement to a balanced diet to ensure your body is healthy and able to support you during a transition period. It will revive you from within and boost your confidence to socialise again.

Tulsi Leaf
Calm your mind and re-establish balance with Tulsi. Tulsi, also known as Holy Basil, is a sacred plant in Ayurveda that was traditionally used to balance the Chakras and bring harmony to the mind, body and consciousness. It works within the areas of the body where anxiety commonly sits to bring about sensations of calmness and relaxation. This can then increase mental clarity and help you find your unique path.

Lions Maine Mushrooms
Allow your creativity to soar using Lion’s Mane Because the most creative solutions come from the most difficult situations. Lion’s Mane will assist you to clear your mind from all the chatter and allow you to focus on creative solutions for your unique situation. You know what they say; if life gives you lemons, make a lemonade. Lion’s Mane will help you manifest exactly that.

Reishi Mushrooms
If the situation and associated stress is causing you to lose sleep, introduce Reishi to your evening drink or meal. Reishi supports deep and quality sleep and together with a thoughtful bedtime routine can help you to both drift off quicker as well as have a full restful night. As you know sleep is of huge importance to keeping a healthy body and mind in the long and short term.

Cordyceps Mushrooms
Charge your long-term energy storage and energise from within using Cordyceps. When experiencing difficulties to adapt to a new normal you may feel you’re lacking the energy and motivation to drive you forwards. Charging your long-term energy storage should then be your top priority. So that your energy level is consistent throughout the day, and you don’t experience harsh highs and lows (that coffee or sugar might create).
