You can be the super-clean, wholefood eater, meditator and exerciser and still have an out of balance body. The piece that’s missing is the impact of day-to-day stress, this is the Perpetual Stress Loop.

8 Steps to the Perpetual Loop

We’ve got to step behind the symptoms like low/no energy and see what stress was doing to you.

  • Stress Loop info…
  • We stress
  • Wind cold enters our body
  • Cortisol increases
  • Tighten our shoulders
  • Pinch the vagus nerve
  • Gut fire goes out
  • Brain not fed
  • Happy hormones not fed
  • We don’t cope and stress out


Adaptogens are plants and mushrooms that help your body respond to stress, anxiety, fatigue and overall wellbeing. You can take adaptogens by adding them to food or beverages or take them as tinctures. Adaptogens bring your body back to a steady balance by managing both physical and mental stressors.

Adaptogens are often used alongside detoxing treatments to help your body recover from the detoxification process in a healthy way.
