Adaptogens / Tonic Herbs

Hi guys


I've been into TCM (Traditional Chinese Medicine) for a while and understand that in TCM it is said that a certain class of herbs can be taken every day with no negative consequences (tonic herbs).  However I am not so sure it is a good idea to be taking the same herbs every single day for sustained periods of time and that the body might start relying on the external stimulus to perform at a certain level.


I take concentrated extracts of reishi, cordyceps and pine pollen twice daily.  I am not sure if this is wise for the reasons outlined above.


I'd appreciate your thoughts.
