Natural Ways to Deal with Stress

It seems like you hear it all the time from nearly every one you know – “I’m SO stressed out!” Pressures abound in this world today. And those pressures will cause stress and anxiety.

Women suffer from anxiety and stress almost twice as much as men. Anxiety disorders are the most common mental illness in America, surpassing even depression in numbers.

In fact, stress is more dangerous than we thought. You've probably heard that it can raise your blood pressure, increasing the likelihood of a stroke in the distant future, but recently a health insurance brochure claimed that 90 percent of visits to a primary care physician were stress-related disorders.

Health Psychology magazine reports that chronic stress can interfere with the normal function of the body's immune system. And studies have proven that stressed individuals have an increased vulnerability to catching an illness and are more susceptible to allergic, autoimmune, or cardiovascular diseases.

Doctors agree that during chronic stress, the functions of the body that are nonessential to survival, such as the digestive and immune systems, shut down. "This is why people get sick," he says. "There are also many occurrences of psychosomatic illness, an illness with an emotional or psychological side to it."

Furthermore, stress often prompts people to respond in unhealthy ways such as smoking, drinking alcohol, eating poorly, or becoming physically inactive. This damages the body in addition to the wear and tear of the stress itself.

Stress is a part of daily life. It’s how we react to it that makes all the difference in maintaining our health and well-being. Pressures occur throughout life and those pressures cause stress. You need to realize that you will never completely get rid of stress in your life, but you can learn coping techniques to turn that stress into a healthier situation.

Essential oils Labor & Pregnancy

I remember being particularly fond of lavender oil during my first pregnancy, and whenever I smell lavender oil it instantly reminds me of that time. Lavender is a must during pregnancy, as it has the longest list of therapeutic properties, it also the safest oil on the skin. It has the ability to stimulate the production of healthy white blood cells, and to goad them into action, should an invading organism such as cold virus, decide to visit. I would recommend a lavender bath at least once a week during pregnancy.

Beside Lavender, there are mandarin, neroli and also geranium that are good for pregnancy. Jasmine and Clary sage are good for labor.

It is not advised to use essential oils labor & pregnancy on yourself on the first trimester of your pregnancy. Carrier oil such as jojoba or sweet almond oil can help stop the stretch marks. After month three you can add 4 drops of mandarin oil to 20 ml of jojoba oil. Massage half a teaspoonful daily.

It is recommended that you avoid jasmine and clary sage for the whole term of pregnancy so you can use it until labor when they can be used.
