Reduce stress and its effects with Complimentary Medicine

We are all affected by stress, regardless of  our intention. The ability to handle stress differs from  person to person. If not handled correctly, stress may fix in the body  and induce physical symptoms; indeed, stress is one of the major causes of death in the  modern world.

Stress is  so harmful to your health. Work is stressful,  sticking to your finances may be extremely stressful, traffic jams are stressful, and bringing up a family may be very stressful. Stress causes loads  of problems – headaches, muscle aches, insomnia, irritability, and many more.

Our immune defences are down when we feel  stressed. Reflexology to the feet can  allow healing energy to flow and stimulate the body’s natural homeostasis. Many  illnesses are stress related – the severity and the effects of stress vary with  each individual, but the common effects of stress include ulcers, indigestion,  constipation, hypertension, headaches or migraines, panic attacks and  depression, palpitations, and even heart attack and coronary thrombosis. Stress  causes muscular tension and affects the nervous system; blood vessels constrict  so the blood does not freely carry oxygen and nutrients. Reflexology  treatment induces muscular relaxation, reduces physical tension and helps  the nervous system to function normally, thus reducing stress. Other effects  include helping the lymphatic system work  more effectively, so reducing toxins and impurities. Breathing becomes deeper  and more relaxed. Hormone levels become more balanced. The client feels calm,  relaxed, and re-energized.

Plant essences can help induce a calm state of  mind. Aromatherapy uses these  essences, for example, of lavender, geranium, and patchouli to help reduce  tension and anxiety; chamomile and Melissa will act as effective antispasmodics  and nerve sedatives. To treat stress, anxiety or tension one or a mixture of  basil, bergamot, Bomeo camphor, cinnamon, clove, eucalyptus, geranium, ginger,  hyssop, lavender, marjoram, nutmeg, peppermint, rose, rosemary, thyme will work  well. Smell all the following essential oils and choose the one or combination  of aromas that appeals to you the most. Lavender relaxes and relieves stress.  Rosemary stimulates the mind. Geranium reduces high stress. Chamomile also  reduces stress. Clary sage is helpful in relaxing. Sandalwood is great for  insomnia and depression. Juniper berry is useful for reducing anxiety and anger.  Sweet marjoram can assist in reducing anxiety.

Indian Head Massage Works on both a physical and psychological level, the techniques used represent a de-stressing programme for the whole body. By massaging the head and shoulders, energies will become rebalanced and a general feeling of relaxation will be achieved . Indian Head Massage can improve blood flow to the head and neck, which increases the distribution of nutrients to encourage healing throughout the body.

  • Massage is the manipulation of superficial and deeper layers of muscle and connective tissue using various techniques, to enhance function, aid in the healing process, decrease muscle reflex activity, inhibit motor-neuron excitability, promote relaxation and well-being, and as a recreational activity. Massage involves working and acting on the body with pressure – structured, unstructured, stationary, or moving – tension, motion, or vibration, done manually or with mechanical aids. Target tissues may include muscles, tendons, ligaments, fascia, skin, joints, or other connective tissue, as well as lymphatic vessels, or organs of the gastrointestinal systems. Massage can be applied with the hands, fingers, elbows, knees, forearm, feet, or a massage device.

  • Nutritional Therapy - As a Clinical nutritionist I focus on the role of nutrition in chronic disease, including possible prevention or re-mediation by addressing nutritional deficiencies before resorting to drugs. A poor diet may have an injurious impact on health, causing deficiency diseases such as scurvy and health-threatening conditions like obesity and metabolic syndrome and such common chronic systemic diseases as cardiovascular disease, diabetes and osteoporosis. Most foods contain a mix of some or all of the nutrient types, together with other substances, such as toxins of various sorts. Some nutrients can be stored internally (e.g., the fat soluble vitamins), while others are required more or less continuously. Poor health can be caused by a lack of required nutrients or, in extreme cases, too much of a required nutrient. For example, both salt and water (both absolutely required) will cause illness or even death in excessive amounts.

  • Waxing is a form of semi-permanent hair removal which removes the hair from the root. New hair will not grow back in the previously waxed area for four to six weeks, although some people will start to see regrowth in only a week due to some of their hair being on a different growth cycle.. Almost any area of the body can be waxed, including eyebrows, face, pubic area, legs, arms, back, abdomen and feet. There are many benefits to waxing versus other forms of hair removal. It is an effective method to remove large amounts of hair at one time. It is a long-lasting method. Hair in waxed areas will not grow back for two to eight weeks. When hair is shaved or removed by depilatory cream, the hair is removed at the surface rather than the root. Within a few days, the hair can be seen at the surface. With these methods, hair tends to grow back as a rough stubble. Areas that are repeatedly waxed over long periods of time often exhibit regrowth that is softer.
