anima mundi / ritual wellness adaptogens
Adriana Ayales, a renowned practitioner of herbal medicine and owner of Anima Mundi Herbals, offers a beautiful introduction to adaptogenic herbs: explaining what they are, how they improve your life, and how you can use them for personal wellness.
Adaptogenic herbs—like Ginseng, Cordyceps, and Rhodiola—work to counteract the effects of stresses on the body. Used for millennia in Eastern healing, they have now become popular again. Ayales shares her in-depth knowledge of these amazing herbs. In addition to a list of complementary herbs that pair well with adaptogens, Ayales also lists “master herbs” being researched for their adaptogenic-like chemistry. She offers 30 recipes for food, drinks, and natural beauty cures that can help banish fatigue, sharpen your mind, stimulate your central nervous system, and enhance vitality. Beautifully illustrated throughout, this authoritative guide also provides daily self-care tips for promoting wellness in mind, body, and spirit.
