Top 3 Stress Treatments

 
Aromatherapy  

Stress is a fact of life, particularly in today’s fast-paced society. We are under ever increasing pressure to do more and more, while we have less time to get it done. Much of our stress is short-lived, connected to a specific event or situation. However, an increasing number of people are finding themselves living in a state of constant stress.

Over time, stress can lead to a wide range of physical problems including tense muscles, ulcers and other gastrointestinal disorders and chronic headaches. More serious conditions such as heart disease and stroke can even be attributed at least partially to stress in some people.

Combating stress generally requires a multi-pronged approach. Physical exercise, sleep and an improved diet are important elements in managing stress. In addition, many people find relief through aromatherapy.

Aromatherapy is a complicated science based in the effects that different scents have on the body. Lavender, orange and lilac are a few of the scents that are generally considered to be relaxing. In general, however, most experts agree that the best way to get started is to explore scents and find the ones that you personally find relaxing.

Once you have selected your scents, you will need to choose your method of distribution. Some people purchase oil burners to heat essential oils. Others prefer to use scented bath oils or incense sticks.

Aromatherapy is reasonably safe for most people. Never ingest essential oils or apply them to your skin without professional guidance. Scented lotions and bath oils should be safe, however. Of course, you should ensure that you are not allergic to a particular scent before using it. If you have asthma or other breathing problems, ensure that you have a steady flow of fresh air.

If you have any underlying medical conditions, it is best to check with your physician before trying aromatherapy. Some scents are not recommended for those with certain conditions.

 
Chamomile Tea  

Stress is a fact of modern life. Our society is moving faster than ever before, and we are all feeling pressure to do more and more in less and less time. Most stress is short-lived and specific to an event or situation. However, many of us are now living with chronic stress.

Over time, stress can lead to a wide range of health problems. Common stress-related disorders include muscle tension, chronic headaches, fatigue, and ulcers and other gastrointestinal distress. More serious conditions such as heart disease and stroke have also been linked to chronic stress.

Fighting stress requires a multi-pronged approach. Regular exercise, healthy diet and adequate rest are believed to be among the basic components of a stress-reduction plan. For short term relief, many people find that chamomile tea is helpful.

Although the FDA has not yet investigated the data, some studies have shown that a component of chamomile acts as a nerve relaxant. Chamomile has long been used by herbalists in treating a wide variety of ailments.

Chamomile tea is believed to be safe for most people. However, chamomile contains a substance that can cause blood thinning. Therefore, it should not be used by those with bleeding disorders or those who are taking blood thinners. It is not recommended for pregnant or lactating women.

It is highly recommended that you buy pre-mixed chamomile tea from the supermarket rather than attempting to mix your own. When purchasing herbs it can be difficult to know the strength and whether they have been cut with anything else.

If you have any underlying medical conditions, it is important to consult with your doctor before consuming chamomile. The tea can occasionally cause allergic reaction or side effects, so tell your doctor immediately if you experience any unusual symptoms

 
Dark Chocolate  

In today’s fast-paced society, stress is a fact of life. We are under constant pressure to complete an ever-growing list of tasks in an ever-shrinking amount of time. Most stress is short-lived and lasts only as long as a specific event or situation. However, chronic stress is on the rise.

Stress can lead to a number of chronic health problems such as headaches, muscle tension and pain, ulcers and other gastrointestinal disorders, and overwhelming fatigue. More serious conditions such as heart disease and stroke have also been linked, in part, to chronic or severe stress.

Fighting stress involves a multi-pronged approach. Most experts agree that regular exercise, healthy diet and adequate sleep are the basic building blocks of a stress-relief plan. However, to combat acute stress, many people turn to chocolate.

Chocolate is generally eaten for pleasure, but an increasing body of research has demonstrated numerous health benefits, particularly in dark chocolate. From lowering cholesterol to suppressing a persistent cough, it appears that dark chocolate may actually have a positive impact on health. More research is necessary to definitively prove these benefits, however.

In addition, chocolate is popularly believed to reduce stress. Chocolate causes the body to release endorphins and creates a natural high, particularly when allowed to melt in the mouth. In moderation, dark chocolate could prove to be a powerful stress reliever.

While chocolate will not cure your problems, it is reasonable to expect that a moderate amount of chocolate can help to reduce temporary acute stress. Of course, it should only be used as part of an overall stress relief plan.
