Resilience – Pillar 03
Resilience by definition is the ability to learn, adapt and implement change; to bounce back and go again with a knowledge and understanding of how to respond to a challenge most efficiently. This is how our immune system is designed to be; however just like a seesaw, sometimes one side can become stuck down and you can end up with an underactive or overactive immune system that causes chaos, inflammation, flushing and a compromised feeling of being. The human body is an extremely intelligent machine that our innate immune system helps to keep in check – it responds to the threat and signals the all clear once the mission is complete.
Have you ever put your hand on something hot and removed it before you felt the heat?
Have you ever felt something tickle your nose and then you immediately sneeze?
What was that? Dust? Pollen? Feather? Fragrance?
We can’t afford to wait to assess stress before we react. What if that tap on your leg was a venomous snake bite or a shark bite leaving a big bleeding hole. Or what if it was an opposing footballer trying to tackle you in a game? Your body must react as if it is life threatening, just in case.
Survival vs Optimal Performance
So, now that we are convinced that survival is important, what do we do? Stimulate survival pathways and live forever! Stimulate and promote your immune activity and aggression.
When you stimulate your nervous survival techniques and you become an anxious, panicked insomniac that is thinking so much you have no idea what you were about to do. Your eyes are working hard for data and exert so much effort you can’t even read the paper in front of you. You become a tired but wired idiot.
If we stimulate and maximize our survival bodily reactions, or prime it to be working overtime in anticipation, we will have a terrible quality of life and possibly reduced lifespan.
It is actually your own body fighting an infection that makes you feel lousy when you have an infection, not the infecting bug. It is your body’s response that determines how sick you feel. The pain associated with a sprain or bad back is your response to the trauma, you make the inflammation. Overstimulating survival mechanisms will create exaggerated responses.
For optimal performance, we want to be resilient. We want to be able to adjust, respond and recover quickly. Be tougher. Launch an efficient and effective defence and then switch off as soon as possible to protect the host (you) from your own defence mechanisms.
How do we become more Resilient?
The key to resilience is to not allow things to affect you so much. Toughen up, “get a thicker skin” so to speak. Reduce the burden from things that are in your control and stop over-reacting to unexpected challenges. Of course, that is it. Intuitively we know it. We are our own worst enemies, right?
No, it is not all in our minds. We are bombarded by so many stresses all of the time and you have no idea what it is. How could you possibly know as a mum, accountant, sportsman, doctor, naturopath how could any of us really know how much stress reactions are occurring in response to Wi-Fi, noise, a chemical we use or a smell, or an imbalance in our microbiome where our good bugs have overgrown and become bad or a deficient and there is a Klebsiella or candida colony thriving or a parasite plodding along.
We blame the things, habits, people, food or chemicals we see in front of us or read on a label. We blame ourselves and our lack of sacrifice or dedication or intensity.
Give yourself a break. The world around us and inside of us is changing so fast there is no way we can evolve fast enough to keep up with the rate at which our external and internal environment is evolving.

Frequently asked questions
Is this suitable for children?
Yes, many parents do use this as part of their children Regime however we cannot provide a dosage guide to anyone under the age of 15 years and this is to be advised and monitored by your health care professional.
Will this stimulate my immune system if I have Auto-Immune Conditions?
This acts much like a balancing effect on a seesaw - helping the body to find balance and better adapt rather than spike one of the spectrum too high. It allows our chemical messengers to communicate properly, allowing the body to correctly communicate with cells properly.
What is the best dose to use for this product?
3 x Capsules daily, usually all 3 in the morning is the easiest for convenience.
What is the difference between this and Cort rx?
Resilience differs in a few ways, the Turmeric aspect is there to act as a powerful anti-inflammatory and NRF2 activator, however, it works more directly with the inflammation and communication pathways and chemical messengers for low-grade inflammation and viral infections. Cort rx works to balance the adrenal immediate response to stress and inflammation and Cortisol balance.
Did a 115km bike ride and use infrared in my water bottle. Found that recovery was better and I was hydrated sufficiently for a tacking bike ride. So I felt better afterwards then previously for the same ride.
Hi Andrew, thanks for your review of Infrared. Glad to hear that you are enjoying the product for your rides. Thanks, - ATP Team
