How Essential Oil Therapy Helps
Environmental factors can have a negative impact on overall health and well-being, disturbing homeostasis – the balance our bodies need to function optimally. Such challenges, even when they do not immediately result in disease, cause our bodies to function below optimal levels. These include:
Emotional distress, career choices, family discord, financial worries and the like elevate stress levels. Clinical studies have linked high stress and chronic stress to numerous negative health conditions.
Exposure to a wide array of toxic insults, including disease-causing pathogens, hormone and pesticide contaminated food, and increasing levels of free-radicals from pollution, food and sunlight contribute to rise in the occurrence of varying illnesses.
The increased consumption of food with pro-inflammatory components (foods high in polyunsaturated vegetable oils such as safflower, sunflower, corn and peanut oil) together with high carbohydrate, low protein diets contribute to increased inflammation in body systems. Stress, with its accompanying imbalance of cortisol, can also contribute to inflammation, as do various (and increasingly prevalent) immunological dysfunctions. Studies increasingly show links between fatal diseases and inflammation.
The opposite of homeostasis, an imbalance of the autonomic nervous system (aka: the visceral nervous system) can negatively impact health in a number of ways. Restoring the body’s homeostasis can reduce the physiological impact of stressors on the body.
