In today's episode, you will hear about:

  • Tonic herbs and adaptogens are not symptom-based, but support the body to balance it's own systems
  • Identifying with your symptom can be terribly damaging - find a new mantra
  • Creating space (sitting down, taking time and setting an intention) to drink your herbal tonic can be transformational
  • Sage likes to begin his relationship with a new herb with 1/2ts in hot water in its pure and isolated form - get to know the herb
  • SuperFeast tonic herbs, in powder-form, forces you to connect with and forge a relationship with the adaptogen (versus a capsule / tablet)
  • Supplements can provide challenges in the later years - what exactly are the long term effects which have not been researched?
  • SuperFeast JING really provides that foundational energy
  • Sitting infront of a computer daily, means your eyes are focused on a static distance, this can be detrimental long term
  • Neural Nectar and Lion's Mane are specially effective for upgrading brain faculty
  • Eye issues (strain, poor sight) is connected with liver, so get onto Schizandra to support your liver
  • Tonic herbs are here with us, not for us
  • The Three Treasures, in particular Shen
  • Consistently having coffee does leak your Jing
