5/5

It got to me incredibly fast which was amazing. And the products have been great so far. I was surprised I got the face mask and lovely soap for free and am so grateful.
I'm not sure if this is the place to mention it but if these products become apart of my daily routine which I think they will. My only concern is because I love so far away I would have to buy new containers every time I want to refill my stock.
I'm trying to reduce my waste, so I'd be fine if everything was in glass but maybe we could come to an arrangement where I send my empty bottles back to you for a refill. Would be much easier if I wasn't living over the other side of Australia. Haha. I could just pop in otherwise.

5/5

My skin is feeling so good! It feels fresh and not itchy or red. I'm on my 4th day of using these products and im loving the results do far!

My husband’s order was more than mine!

My husband loves his Marrakesh for Men soap. One year when we managed to go to the store, he bought almost every single bar! It makes him smell delicious- his mates were keen to know which soap he uses too!

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
