Stress and Immunity

September 27, 2018

Stress and ImmunityAuthor: Lily Mazzarella
PSYCHONEUROIMMUNOLOGY (noun):  
A fancy word for "everything is related" and "it's all really one big system" 😂. Seriously though, the new-ish field of PNI offers some perspective on what I see all the times with my clients (and of course in my own body)—that the functioning of the nervous system impacts every other system, including the immune system, in real and measurable ways.  So you may notice: you keep relapsing as you recover from a cold, or that grief lodges in your lungs along with that virus, or that you get hives before a job interview or that every time you stress blooms, so  that nagging yeast infection.  Or in a research setting:  marital conflict drives up inflammatory markers.  Stress and sleep loss decrease natural killer cell function.   

Our bodies contain multitudes.  We are hives of trillions of cells and "other" life forms (some of which we've incorporated into our own cellular machinery).  Herbs enter this schema the way they know how—looking for what's working and expanding it.  Nervines, for example, can help with a cold by taking down unnecessary limbic vigilance, allowing for the freeing of resources to swiftly create antibodies to rhinovirus.  What does that mean for you?  Your cold lasts 3 days, not 17. 

The nervous system, immune system and endocrine system are all about COMMUNICATION.  Stress crosses the wires, and creates static in the system leading to faulty cross-talk.  Plant medicines clarify the conversation 😊.

B complex

Love the b complex, couldn’t find it elsewhere easily

Yes, this dries up poison oak.

I tried it after the rash did not go away for 2 weeks. It rapidly retreated, and gone.

LOVE!

Tried the lavender moisture cream this morning and it went on so beautifully, easy and almost satin-like. My face feels so nourished, soft it feels so good. Best moisturizer I have applied in a very long time.

Astaxanthin

This is my first time trying this product, and because I am taking it for inflammatory joint pain, I have seen some definite alleviation of my discomfort since I started taking it over a week ago. I am also taking it with Tumeric and Resveratrol (all three formulas twice a day), so I am not sure weather my relief is totally due to the Astaxanthin or the combination of herbs. Still I will continue along this path, since it is very much helping my hips and lower back. I would recommend others give it a try and if needed add the two additional anti-inflammatory combinations. I find it a better alternative to NSAIDs and other meds that cause gastric issues.

NERVE BALM IS AWESOME!!

NERVE BALM IS THE BEST PRODUCT THAT I HAVE FOUND TO WORK ON MY NEUROPATHIC PAIN AND I AM GLAD MY CHIRPRACTOR INTRODUCED TO ME THIS PRODUCT. THANK YOU.
