Stress comes to us in variety of ways. Here are a few categories of stress: environmental, chemical, physical, mental and emotional stress.
Environmental stress: can be caused by: bright lights over your desk; the noise of machinery; the constant ringing of telephones; or too cramped on office space.
Chemical stress: can be caused by: too many cups of coffee; too many lunch time drinks; too much JUNK food; too many aspirins or antibiotics (which you take with each bite of red meat); inhaling substances at the factory or office or your general worksite; pollution on the way to work; smokers in the office (smell of lingering smoke.
Physical stress: can be caused by: pushing your body to the limits (not getting enough sleep); running in the office fun run “fund raiser”;
over working out at the gym; driving long distances with taking enough breaks.
Mental stress: can be caused by: trying to achieve; taking exams; anguish over uncompleted jobs; unemployment; financial worries.
Emotional stress: can be caused by: relationship problems; parental guilt; the inability to give or receive love; grief of the loss of a loved one;
Due to there being a variety of types of stress, there are a variety of holistic essential oils and herbs to help reduce & relieve your type of stress. Before embarking upon using the oils or herbs, first determine your level of stress and a please consult with a qualified Aroma Therapists or a natural health practitioner for proper guidance in the use of the oils and herbs for your desired effect. Our bodies work as an integrated unit along with the mind; to take care of one, is to take care of the other.
Levels of Stress:
Level 1: starts as tiredness and develops into irritability, headaches and insomnia but is not limited to this
Level 2: depression, anxiety, muscular pain, chronic aches, persistent infections, guilt, apathy, helplessness
Level 3: persecution complex, agoraphobia (abnormal and persistent fear of public or open areas (especially where it looks difficult to escape in an emergency; also panic attacks); claustrophobia, despair, increasing guilt and depression, more susceptible to viral infections and bacterial invasions.
Level 4: at this point the body is crying “HELP”!!!! Unexplained pain, heart problems, strokes, and high blood pressure might be experienced, along with various dis-eases that are thought to have their roots in stress like: ulcers, arthritis etc. Stress even affects your immune system causing it to begin to breakdown, leading to all manner of physical problems.
In our next post: Holistic oils & herbs that help to reduce or relieve your different levels of stress.
Stress is a part of all of our lives in some form or fashion. There are different types &; levels of stress that effect us daily, &; if left untreated can lead to other more serious health issues. The kinds of stress & degrees of it are many &; various &; so are some of the most effective treatments to relieve stress. There are 3 main categories that stress is broken down into: positive stress, normal stress &; distress.
“Positive stress” could be described as a “high”, the excited tension you get when you perform your job fast &; efficiently. Positive stress makes us aim a little bit higher, leap over the pitfalls life presents to each &; every one of us, &; gives us the “life force” to take on new challenges. This is the kind of energy that increases stimulation, helps our energy level, &; makes creativity flow; and it contributes to our “feeling good”, so this type of stress doesn’t need to be treated.
“Normal stress” is a state during which the body performs its functions for survival in response to your immediate circumstances. For example, when you have a car accident (hopefully you won’t), the body is flooded with adrenalin which causes all kinds of physical phenomenon like, everything suddenly goes into slow motion, or pain cannot immediately be felt. The “out of the ordinary stress” caused by accidents is all to the good because it increases your capacities & your efficiency. Your heart may be pounding, you’re shaking all over but you somehow managed to find a phone & call for help. Your mechanisms for dealing with survival situations took over &; allowed you to do what had to be done at the time. These “normal stress” mechanisms are very good &; there is no need to treat this kind of stress.
“Distress”, is a whole other thing. This is when the “healthy stress” becomes chronic, with the result that we have no energy, no will, only frustration at the ever increasing pressure load we’re carrying. This is the time the essential/holistic oils &; natural herbs are needed to alleviate the stress problems. I’ll cover a little more on this later.
Now let’s break this stress thing down a little bit more. The different types of stress can override each other, so that the “environmental” stress you suffer from at work can cause “mental” stress which can then follow you home &; cause “emotional” stress for the entire household. Stay tuned for a breakdown of the different levels/types of stress we encounter on a daily basis.
Many of our health issues that we face daily stem from the cells in our bodies being oxygen deficient. Few people over-stand the very vital role that oxygen plays in maintaining a dis-ease free, healthy mind and body. Most of us assume that we can get enough oxygen in our bodies from the air we breathe and the foods we eat. But that’s not true!
Scientists analyzed air bubbles that were trapped inside of an ancient piece of amber and found that it had an oxygen content of 38%. Unfortunately, the air we breathe today only has an oxygen content of between 19-21%. However, the air over some cities is measured to be between 12-15%. It is generally accepted that human life cannot be supported by air containing less than 7% oxygen. Some leading researchers, see a correlation between decreased oxygen levels and the increase in chronic degenerative diseases of different sorts.
Nobel prize winner, biochemist Otto H. Warburg linked the lack of oxygen directly to cancer. A quote from Dr. Warburg states that, “all normal cells have an absolute requirement for oxygen, but cancer cells can live without oxygen; a rule without exception. “Deprive a cell of 35% of its oxygen for 48hrs and it may become cancerous. Dr. Warburg has made it clear that the root cause of cancer is oxygen deficiency, which creates an acidic state in the human body. Dr. Warburg also discovered that cancer cells are anaerobic (they do not breathe oxygen) and cannot survive in the presence of high levels of oxygen, as found in an alkaline state. Meaning that the pH (potential hydrogen), in the body is below the normal level of 7.365, which creates an “acidic” state. A higher pH level, which is “alkaline”, means that there is a higher concentration of oxygen molecules, while lower pH, which is “acidic”, which means there is a lower concentration of oxygen. To bring our cells back into a healthy oxygenated state, we must drink water, eat foods and herbs that are alkaline. In our next post, we will get into cancer cells producing excess “lactic acid” in the body. Lactic acid is toxic to our bodies and our health and prevents or reduces the cells ability to carry vital oxygen to our bodies different systems. Until the next time, may the Universal Creator bless and keep you healthy and safe!
