Stress Less - Essential Oil Blend

Cupboard Keepers

I love these! I have one in every room of my unit. They keep their fragrance for a long time. I still have some I bought at least 5 years ago. I recommend them!

Deep Sleep

Deep Sleep is an amazing product, it works for me. Such an amazing smell and sends you off to sleep in no time. Highly recommend this product. Thank you MoonHaven, my order arrived promptly and the soap samples were a treat.

Lovely product and great service

I bought this little box of products at 36 weeks pregnant in anticipation of my labour. To my astonishment the package arrived less than 24 hours after me ordering it online and it was a good job as I ordered on the Monday, received on the Tuesday and went into unnexpected early labour on the Wednesday.
I used the oils throughout my labour and believe they comforted and calmed me while my husband used the massage oil on my back during contractions.
Every midwife who entered the room commented on how beautiful it smelt.
Unfortunately I didn’t have enough time to try the perenium cream but that’s for next time!

Can't live without Achy Breaky Rub

I suffer from chronic headaches and migraines, plus general chronic pain - especially back, legs and feet after a long day at work. This product provides essential and importantly non pharmacological relief from chronic pain. I use it every day and often share it with my work colleagues and family - the smell is amazing and the affects even better - instant relief. It's like owning my very own magic healing balm!

New Research: Stress Is Cancer’s “Fertiliser”

Did You Know Stress Is Cancers FeriliserRecent Australian research has found that increased levels of stress can drastically accelerate the spread of cancer throughout the body.

What is even more exciting they may have found an effective way to negate the effects of stress using a readily available drug.

And of course, armed with this knowledge we can now say with certainty that reducing stress levels is not just a feel good activity in cancer sufferers but can have life-saving  consequences.

So how does stress increase the chances of cancer spread?

Dr Erica Sloan -Research Team Leader Monash UniversityIn studies on mice at Monash University, researchers found that high stress levels increased the incidence of cancer spread (metastasises) a whopping six times!
Apparently the stress hormones sends signals to the original cancer tumour which encourage it to break free and spread through the lymphatic system to other sites as a faster rate.

Dr Erica Sloan, the Monash research team’s leader explained “The stress is sort of acting like a fertiliser and helping the tumour cell take hold and colonise those other organs.”

(As an aside Dr Sloan was prompted to do this research after she found that her yoga practice reduced her stress levels and in turn her health)

Managing Stress Can Block This Process

But that’s not all!
The same researchers have found that certain medications can help block the stress response on the lymphatic system and cancer
Beta blockers , those drugs we use to control our response to adrenalin – increased blood pressure and pulse rate- have been found to completely block the cancer stress response.
Human trials are now under way where a beta blocker is being provided to newly diagnosed breast cancer patients to assess how effective they are in controlling stress and tumour spread.

How can we reduce the stress response naturally?

If you have been diagnosed with cancer,  it is important to work to reduce your stress levels as much as possible.
And while it is also vital that you work closely with and comply with your health practitioner’s advice, there are a number of things you can do to lower your stress levels naturally.

Chamomile Tea can help reduce anxiety and stressThese include:

  • learn to meditate and practice daily
  • exercise daily – yoga is fantastic-this has been shown to reduce cortisol (stress hormones) levels significantly
  • drink calming herbal teas such as chamomile, lemon balm and valerian.
  • get a good night’s sleep every night
  • consult a naturopath to work with you and your chosen health professional through the process of eradicating your body of cancer
