Do You Suffer from Chronic Pain?

Chronic PainChronic pain is defined as any pain lasting more than 12 weeks. Whereas acute pain is a normal sensation that alerts us to possible injury. Chronic pain is very different. It can persist for months or even longer and can sometimes have no apparent reason to exist.

Chronic pain often involves both nociceptive and neuropathic pain. Disease can also be the underlying cause of chronic pain. Rheumatoid arthritis, osteoarthritis and fibromyalgia are well-known culprits, but persistent pain may also be due to such ailments as cancer, multiple sclerosis, stomach ulcers, AIDS, gallbladder disease, back pain and diabetes.

Chronic pain is a debilitating condition for the millions of people who live with its side effects every day. Being in even temporary pain is not easy, but pain that doesn't go away is especially challenging. While medication significantly helps with the pain, it is often not enough to control all of the symptoms. When chronic pain is poorly controlled, living with it can feel unbearable.

Identify your sensors

You should identify sensors like:

  • What is making you so stressed?
  • What can help change it?
  • Is it within your control?

Even if there is a little bit you can do to solve such situations, you should consider making these small changes as the way you handle things and do things differently can be all the difference you need.

Do things differently. Try something different to what you do normally.

Make time for yourself every day and indulge in fun activities that relax you and give you enjoyment. Giving yourself time for such activities will give you a sense of achievement and also help you reconnect with the sense of closeness and enjoyment.

Think differently

Anytime you feel stressed out, you should stop… pause… take a breath… and then make the decisions. Never react automatically.

AcneThe benefits of Aromatherapy in treating Cystic Acne

Cystic Acne is a different type of breakout that requires more than a spot treatment for curing it. The cysts are hard and painful blemishes that have deep roots within the skin. They eventually heal as the body reabsorbs the infection but they can remain on your skin as a painful lump for weeks. One of the quickest ways to fix it usually involves a cystic acne treatment or a cortisone shot but for those of who would not want to pile on such foreign ingredients on your faces, there are a lot of alternative remedies.

How Aromatherapy is beneficial in treating Cystic Acne

Aromatherapy using essential oils is an excellent option for treating cystic acne as it is not only beneficial for your skin but also for the stress hormones that can effectively trigger a breakout or worsen the conditions in certain individuals. One of the major causes of acne is the pores getting clogged because of both oil production and bacteria. Stress from hormones is also a factor that can cause breakouts. There are a number of essential oils in the market that you can use for your aromatherapy sessions and reduce cystic acne and its effects.
