Water is never out of balance and since we are mostly comprised of it, we should learn to be more like it

Wanna live a long healthy life? Go with the flow…

I was in yoga the other day when the teacher made a very profound observation as we all struggled to maintain hold still through a difficult one-legged posture. She said:

“Balance is not about being still”

This is absolutely correct in a neuromuscular sense.  In order to be balanced, you are making countless movements.  Think about a person who is very drunk or someone who has been knocked out.  When someone pretends to faint or doesn’t actually lose consciousness, they slouch to protect themselves from the fall. But if you’ve seen a person truly faint, they fall like a tree because there is no activity adjusting for balance.

It is only when you lose some aspect of your proprioception (awareness of body parts and the amount of force being used to maintain them in space) that we truly appreciate how being balanced and appearing perfectly still is actually a work of active adjusting.  If you spin around a baseball bat at a church picnic relay race, you know what I mean.

When I created my brand of adaptogenic supplement, I sought a word from any language that would describe my emerging idea that good health is merely movement while in balance.  That concept is well-described by the Hawaiian word, Lokahi.

In a very real sense, the people who are the healthiest don’t get stuck; they laugh, they forgive, they try again…it is a way of being that allows you to thrive in any moment. Accept that wherever you are is where you need to be.  Be present, be grateful, be kind.


And so, we must admit that the experience of being optimally alive and healthy is quite literally to be like water and “go with the flow”.   From Greek philosophy to Bruce Lee, the notion of being like water is an important one.  Water is never out of balance and since we are mostly comprised of it, we should learn to be more like it


One of the most common and odd symptoms of starting an adaptogen is becoming a more mellow person in general.  A few weeks ago, a young woman told me she got into a car accident and it just didn’t bother her like she KNEW it would have bothered her before taking the supplement.

A few days ago, I ran out of hydrogen gas 1/2 mile from the station and needed a tow. It didn’t bother me and in an hour, what might have caused a non-Recharge-taking me considerable consternation was over and I was along my merry way.




To the point of constantly changing to maintain balance, I want to promote our newest iteration of RECHARGE, which is very powerful yet calming. I can already notice better mood and “flow” throughout the day and my sleeping is more predictable.  If you would like a full disclosure on how the formulations have changed over the last two years, you can read more below:
