TWR 127: Adaptogens and Mushrooms for Longevity and Well-Being with Danielle Ryan Broida

Today’s guest on the podcast, registered herbalist and holistic nutritionist Danielle Ryan Broida, believes we each have a light and something we are called to do in this world, and there is no way to fulfill our callings from a place of depletion. Yet, the most common issue among people right now is coping with stress and pressure from our environment. We are joined by Danielle today to discuss how adaptogenic mushrooms can help us manage stress quickly and naturally as well as improve our longevity and well-being.

The vast majority of women, especially moms and young women, suffer from chronic depletion. Adaptogens are a relatively quick way to help our bodies on a molecular level. With the typical diet today, the news, our jobs, and the toxins in our environment, we are asking a lot of our bodies and it is clear that we have never needed adaptogens more.

When Danielle first discovered mushrooms, there weren’t many conversations about mushrooms in society, and her mission has been to get more people to learn about and benefit from mushrooms. If you’ve struggled to remove bodily stress despite your best efforts and are looking for natural ways to fuel your body and health, this episode is for you.
