Ashwagandha—it’s everywhere these days! Ashwagandha (Withania somnifera), aka Indian winter cherry and Indian ginseng, has risen to the top of our collective consciousness over the past few years, but Ayurvedic healers and practitioners have known about this plant for millennia. It’s known in Ayurveda as a “rasayana,” or tonic, which promotes youthful physical and mental health and happiness. (Who wouldn’t want more of that?) An evergreen shrub that grows in the Middle East and Africa, ashwagandha’s roots and fruit have been used medicinally since ancient times. It’s part of the adaptogen family of herbs, which is known for helping manage internal and external stressors.

In conclusion, your body possess its own stress reduction system, but we need to tap into it and get off of big pharmas medication that will send you into an early grave. My biggest recommendation for depression, anxiety and PTSD is CBD oil and Ashwagandha, omega 3, and a low sugar diet. [Sugar stimulates the brains center of pleasure too much, which leads to a crash(depression).] Another one is 88%dark chocolate and singing. please reach out to me with any questions, comments and concerns. TY!
