What do we mean by adaptogen?
An adaptogen is a natural substance used in herbal medicine to normalize and regulate the systems of the body. Adaptogens help organisms adapt to environmental factors and avoid damage from these factors. When we examine the origin of the word, we find the Greek adapto which means to adjust and the suffix gen which means producing.Adaptogens possess the properties of simultaneously adjusting and producing– an optimal combination for 21st century cultures.
When we design an adaptogen culture, we focus on:
- How we move culture from its present to future state.
- Empathically realizing intentions based on needs.
- Allowing an organization to build up stores of strength, creativity, and resilience.
