Did you know that oxygen shortage in the human body has been linked to every major illness category including heart conditions, cancer, digestion and elimination problems, respiratory disease, inflamed, swollen and aching joints, sinus problems, yeast infections and even sexual dysfunction? It’s not common knowledge yet but new studies are coming out every day. At Eurospa, we like to keep you informed.
So let’s talk about oxygen, how we can get more of it and what it will do for us.
Oxygen is our primary source of energy and is the main energy source for our brain function. It calms the mind and stabilizes the nervous system. Without oxygen we cannot absorb important vitamins, minerals, and other nutrients our body needs. When our cells lack oxygen they weaken and die. Without oxygen, nothing works very well or at all.
That means that "taking 10 deep breaths" to calm down is a totally valid and medically proven way to relieve stress and calm the nervous system No pills, just an easy step to big change.
Before I send you suggestions, it’s important to remind you that worry and anxiety aren't part of the stress-less solution. So start by intentionally choosing not to worry and instead take care of yourself. How to take care of yourself? With more oxygen of course.
- exercise: raising your aerobic activity level forces the blood to distribute oxygen throughout the body quickly and efficiently
- essential oils: use lavender and sandlewood to relax and calm down and oils such as rosemary or eucalyptus in the shower or sauna are great for enhancing oxygen absorption and detoxing and cleansing the body of toxins.
- sauna or steam room: the heat and moisture relax and allow the body to take in more oxygen and release toxins and stress.
