Aromatherapy and depression
When artist Leslie Cheung committed suicide, he left speculation on his sigh in regret. The news of "depression" has arisen. The realization that even a superstar could be hurt by such problems suddenly heightened the "suffering index" of ordinary people. Residual natural disasters, sad economic outlooks, fear of unemployment, adolescents in relation to school education … these pressures of life mean "depression" to one of the most serious civilized diseases in this century.
"Insomnia" is a modern society. According to a survey by the American National Sleep Foundation, every woman in the age range of 30 to 60 years suffer from three "insomnia". "Insomnia" has become a female epidemic. The Shanghai Chinese Medical Hospital has been dealing with epidemic diseases since 1996, and the results show that 15% of the Shanghai residents experience severe insomnia symptoms.
These numbers are concrete proofs of stress and insomnia. The beneficial effect of aromatherapy on calming emotions and the enhancement of sleep quality has long been rooted in the minds of everyday people and has been proven in many clinical literature. These are the active development of "psycho-aromatherapy" products in close cooperation with the Yangsen Biotechnology Institute in Bel-Air.
Depression: a century of illness, cancer and AIDS
If a patient does not commit suicide, depression is generally not life-threatening. However, quality of life will cause a drastic reduction and the loved ones will be deeply affected. According to a survey conducted by the World Health Organization (WHO), 3% of the world's population is currently suffering from depression. The report also predicted that depression, AIDS and cancer will become the three major diseases of the 21st century. By 2020, depression will only be secondary to cancer if it can not function properly and even death.
For most people, the degree of nervousness and anxiety may not reach the level where they need to receive medical attention and counsel. However, it is undeniable that long-term nervousness and anxiety affect the balance between body and mind. The Taipei Lian-An Clinic ran 1164 white-collar workers who went to medical examinations. The results showed that two-thirds of patients were noticeably worn out and nearly 40% of patients had depression and anxiety psychiatric treatment. The symptoms of nervousness and anxiety are reaching the epidemic in the United States from workplace stress. 43% of adults are at risk. Absence, decline in productivity and growth in medical bills, resulting from occupational nervousness, are expected to cost hundreds of billions of dollars to the US economy.
Understanding the Importance of Sleep
"When I Sleep, My Mind Has Rested" Many people have this misconception. However, the probable truth is that if you are asleep, only the rest of the body rest. Your mind is still active as it prepares for the next day. Sleep is just as essential to the healthy body and mind as it is nutrition. If you do not have enough sleep time or no sleep, your organization will collect "dormant debts" and one day you will have to pay. Keep in mind that rest is not a substitute for sleep
Another misunderstanding is that most sleep disorders can lead to abnormal healing. Many who suffer from sleep disorders do not realize that this is actually a disease, much less understandable to be cured. Methods of healing include medications, treatment, psychiatric treatment and combined therapy. Sleep disorders will not disappear naturally. If it can develop at its own pace, it will only degrade quality of life, damage people's relationships, affect man's behavior, and produce enormous negative impacts on accidents or deaths.
examines the mental effects of "aromatic essential oils", essentially the psychological effects of aromatic scents and the physiological effects of essential oil molecules on the central nervous system. Both psychological and physiological effects can change the central nervous system, the internal secretion system and the immune system, and thus have complex biological consequences.
It uses modern "psycho-aromatherapy" analytical tools such as micro-positive emission tomography (PET), magnetic vibration measurement (MRI), electroencephalogram (EEG), magnetoencephalography (MEG) and cerebral blood flow (CBF) on the nervous system. It can be used to study the effects of aromatherapy on health problems such as insomnia, depression, nervousness, mental brittleness, headaches, fatigue, dizziness and memory impairment.
According to popular understanding, aromatherapy can indeed reach the effect of sedative emotions. People are interested in aromatherapy when certain essential oils actually alleviate the illnesses that are still difficult to cure in hospitals such as mental fragility, depression and insomnia. In clinical studies, besides supporting psychiatric therapy for drug therapy and depression, many doctors also encourage patients to use aromatherapy. Both consumers and professionals recognize the positive effects of essential oils on stress relief.
Nepenthe biotechnical pure essential oil research and development
It was five o'clock in the afternoon. In a relaxing house in the suburbs of Taipei, about 40 old men enjoyed the uplifting scent of the Bel Nepalese essential oil. They seemed to be calm, they were in the state of peace and tranquility, far from the problems of the world. This study is based on a study of Nepenthe essential oil studied by Yangsen Biotechnology Research Group for a week to examine the therapeutic effects of aromatherapy to relieve the elderly's depressed emotions
Research group members have been depressed to estimate the patient's depression level. During the research process, the patient inhaled the flavoring substance for 4 hours a day. Seven days later, depression scales were again used to assess the symptoms of depression. At the same time, heart rate variability (HRV) is also evaluated to assess the sympathetic neuronal activity and parasympathetic neuronal activity of the symptoms.
Previous studies have already shown that the greater the depression scale, the higher the level of sympathetic activity, and the lower the level of parasympathetic activity. The table below shows that after seven days of aromatherapy, the "Nepenthe Bio-tech Pure Essential Oil" depression score was clearly reduced and the sympathetic activity of anxiety dropped dramatically. On the other hand, parasympathetic activity, which refers to calmness, greatly increased.
