You Curious About The Healing Power Of Aromatherapy But Not Convinced It Really
You may not believe it, but
aromatherapy can be extremely useful in helping heal complicated emotional and
medical problems. It can help promote a positive emotional state of being and
has been proven to help deal with problems ranging from grief and anger issues
to asthma, migraines and even chicken pox.
Aromatherapy is an effective
healer due to the essential oils that are used in the treatment. The essential
oils mesh naturally, which causes their molecules to create a synergy that is
easily inhaled. This process allows the treatment to be absorbed into the body
quickly, making aromatherapy work faster that most modern medicinal treatments.
The molecules released through
aromatherapy will stimulate and affect portions of your brain. The triggers that
it provides to the brain can produce emotions, can mask other types of emotions
and can calm the body to allow additional treatments to work.
Most people don't realize it, but
doubt, fear and anxiety can all work against their body's natural attempt to
heal itself. These harmful emotions can block pharmaceutical cures as well.
Aromatherapy acts to calm the body and allow medicine to heal.
I have had chronic back problems
for about as long as I could remember. I don't remember a time when I wasn't
constantly being hindered by a slight pain in my lower back or the inability to
rotate my body fully to either side. My back pain affected every aspect of my
life. Every decision was made with regard to if my back would allow me to do it.
I lived in a state of permanent
threat of pain. My back was constantly on my mind and I was unable do anything
to relieve it. I lived my life not knowing when it would act up and I'd have to
lie on the floor for half an hour to let it subside. I refused to play sports,
go swimming on the beach or even run to catch the bus for fear of my back giving
Since the pain started, I've tried
to find a cure. I've seen countless doctors, chiropractors, surgeons and back
specialists. They all gave me treatment, but nothing worked.
I was against using any Eastern
types of medicine to help my back, but eventually I was left with no choice. I
didn't want to ask my doctor what alternative forms of therapy I could try. I
didn't want him to think that I no longer trusted his course of treatment.
Instead, I went to my trusty
laptop and started looking online for the best treatment for my condition. Again
and again, the most recommended advice was to try aromatherapy.
No matter how much I researched
and read about it, no one provided me with the information that I needed. No one
told me the way aromatherapy worked and how I could do it myself in the comfort
of my own home.
Most importantly, nothing I read gave
me the confidence to be sure that aromatherapy was the right path for me, so
despite the recommendations I didn't try the treatment.
I continued with my back problem.
After a while the chronic pain became second nature and I learn't to live with
I lived with it until one day I
was early for a meeting and found myself wandering around a mall, trying to kill
some time. I wandered into a natural healing store and saw their collection of
essential oils. I surprised myself when I recognized a lot of the types of oils
and I surprised myself even more when I realized that I knew what conditions
they were supposed to help with. Despite the amount of research I had done, this
was the first time I had seen the actual oils.
I saw the essential oil that was
recommended for my back and I picked it up. I opened the cap and gave the bottle
a sniff. I would love to say that I felt better afterwards, even though at the
time I thought that was the way aromatherapy works.
As more of a scientific experiment
than as a treatment, I bought the essential oils and figured I'd see if they
At first, I didn't notice any
change. But I did enjoy the smell, so I kept the oils. They had a calming effect
on my life and, for that reason, I kept smelling them.
I know the aromatherapy didn't
solve my problem, but I also don't think it was pure coincidence that the
treatment and the relief happened at the same time. I know now that aromatherapy
is a useful tool in helping the body feel better.
Aromatherapy is a form of therapy
that is meant to you relax and to reduce stress.
If you are struggling with
symptoms and don't believe in the medicinal power of aroma, then you are doing
yourself and your health a disservice. People have been using aromatherapy for
thousands of years to treat all types of different conditions. Are you willing
to put your life at greater risk rather than try it for yourself?
Unlike acupuncture, chiropractic
and other forms of alternative medicine, aromatherapy doesn't require a
professional to administer the treatment. You can buy the essential oils and
perform the treatment from the comfort of your own home. It is inexpensive and
easy to do. It is one of the few effective remedies that you can do by yourself,
without expensive doctor bills.
Learn how to help your body heal
itself and just make sure that you are cynical about its effectiveness, that
your health doesn't suffer.
