Aromatherapy - Ten Essential Oils to have on hand!

Ten Essential Oils You’ll Want To Use And Why! by Susi Baumgartner Aromatherapy literally means “to treat with aroma or fragrance through inhalation.” Although inhalation is one of the main applications for Aromatherapy, there are several ways to enhance your health and well-being through the Art of Aromatherapy. As a preventative measure Aromatherapy is a safe alternative method to soothe our emotions, quiet our mind, and balance our energies, especially if we feel like we are a little off-centre or out of balance. Essential oils have the ability to help us naturally, by bringing about a feeling of calmness or alertness, depending upon the situation and which essential oil or combination of oils you use. Using an oil burner to diffuse essential oils or having a massage with an essential oil blend are other practical and effective ways to enjoy their benefits! How does it work? The diffusing effect of essential oils works through the 'olfactory system' which has

Brain Training

Brain Health Blog Working memory training changes the brain By Gregory Kellett, a cognitive neuroscience researcher at SFSU and science writer for Lumos Labs . It seems that working memory training may work by physically altering the brain. Stockholm Brain Institute researchers put healthy people through working memory exercises for 35 minutes per day over a period of 5 weeks. Changes in dopamine receptor density were measured with positron emission tomography (PET) before and after the training. Following working memory training, they found: An increase in the density of dopamine receptors. An improvement in working memory performance. The neurotransmitter dopamine plays a central role in working memory. This research implies that improving working memory performance through several weeks of training might work by increasing the quantity of dopamine receptors in the brain Time to try a little Brain Training....!

What is Aromatherapy?

Aromatherapy is the therapeutic use of aromatic plant extracts or essential oils. These oils and extracts have a wide variety of uses, such as in bath salts, massage oils and even fragrances, which can be therapeutic to the mind, body and soul. The pure essence of a plant, otherwise known as essential oils, provides physical and psychological benefits when used correctly and safely. These benefits can come from both inhalation and physical application. There are a wide variety of aromatherapy products to choose from and each serves a different purpose. For example, lavender has a calming effect, while oils from the family of mint – such as peppermint and spearmint – offer a stimulating effect. These oils can be found in numerous vehicles, such as soaps, air fresheners, candles, and massage oils. Benefits of Aromatherapy The benefits of the essential oil aromas can be noticed almost immediately. Inhaling the fragrance of essential oils stimulates the brain to trigger a chemical reactio

The effects of mood on the immune system

The effects of mood on the immune system - The direct impact of negative thoughts and emotions on immunological function seems to be reasonably well documented and, since many Psychoneuroimmunology (PNI) phenomena seem to be mediated by negative affect, rather than situational “stress”, strategies that directly modify this factor may manifest greater benefits. While relaxation orientated meditation most likely acts to reduce the impact of stress... Read more... Posted using ShareThis

7 ways to optimise your brain....

Seven Ways To Optimize Your Brain and Your Life By Dr. Daniel G. Amen The brain is a three-pound supercomputer. It is the command and control center running your life. It is involved in absolutely everything you do. Your brain determines how you think, how you feel, how you act, and how well you get along with other people. Your brain even determines the kind of person you are. It determines how thoughtful you are; how polite or how rude you are. It determines how well you think on your feet, and it is involved with how well you do at work and with your family. Your brain also influences your emotional well being and how well you do with the opposite sex. Your brain is more complicated than any computer we can imagine. Did you know that you have one hundred billion nerve cells in your brain, and every nerve cell has many connections to other nerve cells? In fact, your brain has more connections in it than there are stars in the universe! Optimizing your brain's function is essentia

Change your brain, change your life! 1-8 Principles

Daniel Amen, M.D., one of the world's foremost authorities on the brain, has news for you: 1. your brain is involved in everything you do —> learn to care for it properly, and you will be smarter, healthier, and happier in as little as 15 days! You probably run, lift weights, or do yoga to keep your body in great shape; you put on sunscreen and lotions to protect your skin; you might have already given up smoking because you know it causes Lung cancer...but chances are you simply ignore your brain and trust it to do its job. People unknowingly endanger or injure their brains, stress them by working at a frenzied pace and not getting enough sleep, pollute them with caffeine, alcohol, and drugs, and deprive them of proper nutrients. Brain dysfunction is the number one reason people fail at school, work, and relationships. The brain is the organ of learning, working, and loving; it's the supercomputer that runs our lives. It's very simple: when our brains work right, we wor

‘Fragrance is the nourishment of the spirit’ Mohammad (Islamic Prophet) Aromatherapy: A Relaxation Experience You Owe Yourself Author: Jon Arnold Aromatherapy is of the opinion that particular good smelling, plant-derived oils enhance your health and physical well being, far beyond the enjoyable smell and nice feeling they endow. They are breathed in, or massaged on, or occasionally consumed. ❥✾ ♥ ❀ ♥ ❉ ♥ ✿ ♥ ✽ ♥ ✺ ♥ ✵ ♥ ✾ ♥ ❀ ♥ ❉ ♥ ✿ ♥ ✽ ♥ ✺ ♥ ✵❥ Aromatherapy is the practice of utilizing the essential oils, from a large mixture of plants, to bring about particular changes in the body or the mood. Scientists determined long ago that smell is a very authoritative thing. For example, particular scents can trigger memories and others can bring about particular mental physical changes.

What Are Anxiety Disorders?

What Are Anxiety Disorders? Author:johnnewbuddy We all know what anxiety feels like - butterflies in the stomach, all emotions turned upside down, heart beating violently, furious sweating. All of us have come face to face with an anxiety attack at some point in our lives. Maybe it was before your speaking engagement before the big crowd in the auditorium, or before your first job interview, or that all important presentation to the board of directors - anxiety, is a universal emotion, and a normal reaction to stress. As an evolutionary device, anxiety is very helpful in dealing with stress, tense and unexpected situations. Anxiety can stir you up into action, give you focus and heightened powers of concentration. Anxiety might help you stay up all through the night before that big exam, be funny or interesting on the first date, be confident at the presentation. To generalize matters, anxiety helps you deal with situations you would be terrified of being in in normal circumstances. H

Home Remedies for Anorexia - Treatment Cure - Natural Remedy for Anorexia

Home Remedies for Anorexia - Treatment & Diet - Natural Remedy for Anorexia What is Anorexia Nervosa? Anorexia nervosa has been defined as an irrational fear of gaining weight coupled with a constant attempt to lose weight. Victims of anorexia nervosa display a dangerous obsession with thinness and are known to go to extremities to maintain a low body weight. A disturbing and debilitating part of this affliction is that the more weight the victim loses, the more obsessive they become about losing even more weight. The symptoms are often difficult to spot in the beginning, and anorexics usually tend to deny their condition. However, as it worsens, the tell-tale signs of anorexia nervosa like dramatic weight loss, and a denial of being too thin start to appear. There is no one specific cause for anorexia nervosa. It is thought to be a result of various biological, emotional and social triggers. Research has shown that in some cases, a predisposition to anorexia may tend to run in

What is EFT/Tapping? EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique) or Tapping , is based on the ancient principles of acupuncture but without the use of needles, and includes emotional elements as part of the healing process. By tapping on various body meridians while tuning into thoughts, feelings, emotions or beliefs, we are able to clear the energy disruptions that cause physical and emotional distress. Sounds easy compared to conventional therapies? It is. Astoundingly so. EFT was introduced by Gary Craig in 1995. Over the past decade EFT has rapidly expanded throughout the world, becoming a highly valued method for over 5000 medical doctors, psychiatrists, psychologists, chiropractors, acupuncturists, nurses and other members of the healing professions.
