So I have been working on a few personal growth elements in my life. While on this journey I was looking into "adaptogen's" in food. Have you ever heard of these before. An adaptogen is a "new class of metabolic regulators (of a natural origin) which increase the ability of an organism to adapt to environmental factors and to avoid damage from such factors." And then it hit me, drumming is an adaptogen. You can walk into a class or circle and feel frazzled and you will walk out peaceful or you can walk into the class or circle exhausted and it energizes you. Drumming gives your body the exact thing it needs. So come on out and get your dose of adaptogens.
