Ask Deepak - What Are Adaptogens

Category:  Ask Deepak Videos

Adaptogens are substances that modulate your response to stress or changes in the environment.
Deepak examines the history of these substances and some recent studies on particular adaptogens which he has been involved in. How can these substances be used to improve our response to stress?

  • It could guide to become quiet but then like in natural Zen it is good to become aware of the natural stillness inside yourself. Come sit in the Zen garden and watch the fish move in stillness. Always moving, always still..... http://youtu.be/r-brrdJLokg

  • If we combine motivation with a thought and know that it will happen. Would we create our reality the way we like it?

  • I noticed that you have no captions on your videos so I cannot understand what is being said because I do not hear at all. I tweeted you twice about it and was apprently disregarded. I`m thinking of un-follow you. Best, Chris

  • good question - I`m on the same boat. I just feel that the text book is not offering what I want to learn. I am ready to learn the bigger stuff, but I don`t think anyone around me gets that.... What are you interested the most?? What gets your juices flowing... follow that... :)

  • I tell others not waste a moment of your day. Life is a gift, like a toddler, even if your body is in pain, focus your attention on creating sounds, breathing, exploring, being present. In my wildest imagination, I never thought my body would be able to take me to the heights of new learning, new ways of being in the present moment. I am proud to be Certified in both Primordial Sound Meditation and 7SLY Instructor. Our community looks forward to your wisdom, one small step at a time.

  • My mother passed away from breast cancer 7 years ago, my sister has breast cancer, for the 2 time..and I have been under a tremendous amount of stress for years now. Although my stress level has been less in the past 6 months I know I will have consequences because I didn`t eat well and I had terrible insomnia and depression for many years. I fell in the shower and broke my left knee, so financially, emotionally and socially it has been a big mess. What can I do to prevent future damage ? Ty

  • Hi my name`s Matt Paisley and I`m heading into grade 12 next year; my last year before university. I understand the importance of getting good grades next year and mentally preparing myself for the work ahead, but I`ve never been the most motivated kid so my question to you would be how do I become more motivated and more productive? I can conceptually grasp the importance of learning and becoming more wise but my will power is virtually non-existant
