Have you thought about how much pressure your body is under these days? When you consider the additives in our food, the chemicals in our drinking water, the pollution in the air we breathe – the list can seem pretty daunting. When we add the pressures of daily living, the emotional and mental stresses that exhaust and fatigue us, we can begin to understand how easily the body can exhibit worrying signs of stress and distress.
One of the more disturbing aspects of modern living is the widespread increase in adrenal stress that is affecting people of all ages and backgrounds. Adrenal stress was more commonly associated with people in middle age but now it’s just as likely to affect people in their teens and early twenties. We have to accept the fact that we are living in highly-stressed times and that things are not getting better. So why is this a problem for our health and wellbeing?
The affects of environmental pollution, food additives, inappropriate food choices and emotional stress can compromise the immune system and leave the body vulnerable to disease, infection, allergies and imbalances in the hormonal and metabolic systems. The result is a reduction in the quality of life, an increase in the possibility of serious disease, an impairment of the mental faculties and a shorter lifespan. I know. It doesn’t make for very pleasant or uplifting reading but our purpose is to flag the potential problems so that you are fully prepared to take the right steps to neutralise them. And the great news is that there’s plenty you can do to improve the situation before the imbalances ever get a chance to challenge your health. And some of the answers are probably growing unnoticed in your garden.
The long and noble traditions of using herbs and natural treatments to assist with health and wellbeing issues has seen a recent and welcome revival as more and more people express their concern about the effects of relying too much on anti-biotics and prescription medication. Herbalists and naturopaths favour prevention more than cure and this holistic approach to fostering better health can go a long way in countering the effects of all forms of stress. If you suffer from insomnia, there are natural herbal supplements you can take that will encourage you to sleep better and enjoy a restful night’s sleep. That’s one simple remedy that can make a substantial difference to the quality of your life and reduce the stresses and pressure that often interfere with the normal working of your immune system.
Learning to relax and unlock the physical tension that often reflects the stresses and frustrations of work and family life can revolutionise your ability to handle stress effectively. This is an entirely natural process that enhances both physical and mental function. It’s also one of the keys to maintaining a healthy and robust immune system.
Nutrition needs to be considered too. Diet will always play an important role in affecting health and we need to eliminate products and substances that may be harmful to our health. This is just common sense but, if we ignore the dietary advice and continue to consume products that provoke intolerances or allergies, we know we will pay the price at some point. It’s so easy to avoid these issues by maintaining a diet of fresh and natural produce, concentrating on food types that support our health and wellbeing and avoiding anything that could cause a problem, either now or in the future.
We may not be able to change the world and make it a less stressful place but we can do so many things to control the way we respond to the daily challenges around us. We can learn to use the most natural ways possible to boost our health and fully appreciate the methods that lend themselves to a calmer, more productive and more enjoyable way of living. It’s your life. Make it the best. You deserve it!
