What Is A Compromised Immune System

Fatigue, Health, Stress Management
When your immune system is not functioning as well as it should, complications will arise. You will find that you are catching diseases more often than normal. This is because your body can’t fight off pathogens effectively. But, what are the reasons behind your body having low immunity? • Stress Every time you get stressed, your body starts to produce cortisol which is the stress hormone. The major aim of cortisol is to prepare your body to free from the perceived threat. For cortisol to achieve this, it will lower the protein your body requires in order to signal other immune cells. This will lead to a suppressed immune system as it reduces the number of lymphocytes present in your body. With a reduced number of lymphocytes, your body can…

Treat Chronic Fatigue With Essential Oils Part 4

Fatigue, Natural Healing
Essential oils in aromatherapy Last but not least, some people find that the scent alone of essential oils is invigorating and helpful. Aromatherapy involves not putting the oil necessarily anywhere on your body, but focusing on the healing impact of its aroma. This is more a matter of mental and emotional well-being than of physical medicine. For people with Chronic Fatigue, there are often mental aspects to the condition which may be overlooked in favor of addressing the physical symptoms. Depression and anxiety may be part of the physical package, but may also be a reaction to being in an unpleasant situation, or feeling powerless. The problem is that mental health symptoms can often influence your physical health negatively, so they still need addressing. You can diffuse the essential oil…

Treat Chronic Fatigue With Essential Oils Part 3

Fatigue, Natural Healing
Eating essential oils Edible essential oils are another popular way of treating the symptoms of ME/CFS. Edible essential oils are sort of like a natural multivitamin, a highly concentrated form of a plant which contains all the benefits of a huge bowl of it, but in a single drop. These essential oils make for a cheap, fast alternative to chowing down on superfoods all day. Because they are absorbed through the walls of the stomach and intestine the dose you will receive is far greater than through topical application. However, on the other hand, because you are using your natural digestion and blood flow to carry it, the essential oil will affect your whole body equally, rather than specifically targeting the area you want it to. Edible essential oils are…

Treat Chronic Fatigue With Essential Oils Part 2

Fatigue, Natural Healing
Topical application of essential oils Topical application of an essential oil is when you rub it into the affected area directly, or into the skin above the affected area. Topical essential oils can be applied for many reasons, from arthritis to migraines. The essential oil will slowly soak into your skin, bringing with it the benefits of the plant.

When it comes to ME/CFS, there are several symptoms which can be relieved via topical application of essential oils. Aches and pains are a common issue for people with Chronic Fatigue. This is because the condition affects muscular tone, meaning your muscles break down more…

Treat Chronic Fatigue With Essential Oils Part 1

Fatigue, Holistic Medicine, Natural Healing
Myalgic Encephalomyelitis/Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (ME/CFS) is a difficult diagnosis to handle. Largely because it is so poorly understood. Sufferers of ME/CFS feel almost constant fatigue, with peaks and troughs of energy which are consistently lower than what would be considered normal. They also suffer from cycles of insomnia and hypersomnia, aches and pains in their muscles, and a variety of other, often flu-like, symptoms. Until very recently ME/CFS was assumed to be a false illness, invented by lazy or attention-seeking people to make excuses for their poor behaviors. It is odd to think that for so many years there were real doctors looking at people who could not physically get out of bed and saying “I can't see a cause, so you're making it up!” Fortunately, medicine has moved along…
