When we are stressed, all systems in our body switch from their natural balancing and healing mode to stress mode….within seconds.
So what does that mean? The body responds to stress as an emergency, and that means diverting resources from the major organs and body systems to the heart, lungs and limbs (preparing you to get away fast or fight). Immunity plummets; your brain is deprived of oxygen, and your heart goes into overdrive. Your body produces stress hormones like mad, and they flood your system, telling everything to prepare for battle.
The thing is, though, that most of our stress is not physical, so all these preparations are actually counterproductive. But if you soon resolve the stress and return to normal, your body (assuming everything was working well in the first place) can quickly get rid of its surplus of stress hormones, tone down the body systems and get things back to normal.
One of the big problems of modern life, however, is that it has become more complicated and hence, more stressful. Most of us live in a perpetual state of worry, fear or stress. It’s this ongoing stress that does the most damage. The prestigious Mayo Clinic in the U.S. found that stress is the major cause of heart disease, more than smoking, inactivity or high cholesterol? It is also believed to be responsible to around 80% of all chronic health problems and disease.
Can you see how important it is to reduce stress? There are many ways to do it: yoga, meditation, a healthy diet, coping strategies and so on. But sometimes, even the most disciplined of us needs just a little more help to regain inner balance. That’s why we developed Bliss, a gentle blend of essential oils or creams that has been treated with specific energy frequencies to bring your energy pathways and chakras into greater balance.
We know it works, and so do hundreds of people who discovered for themselves the soothing, calming, energy-balancing effects of CHI’s Bliss Emotional Power Lotion or Bliss Perfumed Oil. A little dab on your wrist and neck can be just the thing to help you or someone you love through those rough spots and challenging interactions you face from day to day.
