The Start of Stress

Stress is our ultimate enemy as it comes with a variety of problems when those are dealing with it for too long of a time. Although we may not think about it, stress is a normal response that releases hormones that the skin grows sensitive to when there is too much and causes breakouts. Just when you think you were already at your wits end because of a final, upcoming marriage, or any other crisis, your skin drives you further down the ditch. It isn't always easy to determine the reason for your breakouts, but once you do figure it out you have a higher chance at controlling it.  

What's Going on in Our Body During Stress?

A high level of stress causes excess inflammation to build up in our body and cause acne although oil production plays just as much of a role. Our body begins to secrete the hormone, cortisol, into the bloodstream when we are stressed. This does causes the blood vessels to dilate, increase blood flow, and therefore blood pressure. This is the beginning stages of the body preparing itself for a mechanism known as the "fight or flight" response. The problem is not stress itself, but chronic stress because cortisol continues to be released into the immune system where it works overtime without rest. This means that the skin, in particular, is prone to stress-induced acne. Stress also seems to have a negative relationship with the thyroids response to TSH, or thyroid stimulating hormone, causing low levels of thyroid levels. This complication invites a host of problems with possible inflammation being one of them.

Sun Treatment for Acne

The sunlight is wonderful for our skin, and can surprisingly work wonders for stress-induced acne. It's probably not a surprise for most that we need at least 15 minutes of sunlight a day to allow our bodies to produce enough vitamin D that helps with calcium absorption. The benefit the sun has with acne is that it also plays a role in combating inflammation. The warm sun may also ease depression and decrease blood pressure. Keep in mind that when you are ready to soak in a bit of that sun not to add any sunblock during your fifteen minute session.

Baltic Essentials for Acne and Stress

By now, you are probably getting the idea that inflammation plays an large role in the development of acne. When inflammation can be reduced to eliminated in your body, you will notice a positive difference in the texture and appearance of your skin.

Natural Benefits of Baltic Essentials Hazelwood

The Beginnings of Hazelwood

 

Hazelwood is considered a medicinal source that was discovered years ago, and there are about 20 versions of these plants known today. It is thought that Aboriginals were the first to learn about Hazelwood. To this day, it is used for its ability to neutralize acidity in the body and create an alkaline environment. This amazing ability occurs because of the wood's powerful ability to absorb excess acid from the skin when it is worn. The wood is also capable of reducing free radicals because it is rich in anti-oxidants. It is best to keep the wood moist to get the most out of it. Although they are safe to wear in the shower, water containing chlorine will affect the longevity so it should be removed during contact with these water sources such as the pool.

Healing the Body the Right Way

Baltic Essentials Hazelwood can be used to help heal a variety of ailments such as:

  • Teething issues
  • Indigestion (heartburn, ulcers)Baby Hazelwood Necklace - 11 Inch Hazelwood Necklace Eczema Colic Reflux GERD Raw Honey Baltic Amber Mixed For Infant, Baby, Toddler

  • Psoriasis
  • Skin Problems (acne, dermatitis, eczema)
  • Gastrointestinal Issues
  • Morning Sickness
  • Constipation

Others may realize it is time for a replacement when they start to notice their old symptoms creeping up on them again.

Pain and Stress Relief for Kids

Who Develops Stress? 

It can seem as if adults are the only one's to carry a multitude of the problems in the world when it comes to dealing with stress, but, whether we think about it or not, kids can be in the same boat. Honestly speaking, the thought of a child having or knowing what "stress" is may be laughable to some who believe kids do not fully understand what the term means whereas adults -- who have the more developed minds --do. Nonetheless, toddlers, babies and kids of different ages also do go through times in which they too deal with various forms of stress even though they cannot explain the nature of it. Instead, issues such as stress and anxiety is accepted in older adults (which is true) because it is more common.

Indeed, stress and anxiety are strong words that can be hard to comprehend even for the toddlers and babies affected by them. It is true that oftentimes, it happens on a level so overlooked and undetectable that no one actually believes that it is true. Today, more people are accepting of the concept, and look for ways to help their little one who is suffering. Parents and caregivers alike look for medicinal and natural remedies to help their child in whatever way that helps -- especially when they are still trying to discover what is the exact problem they are experiencing. One question that seems to pop up a lot is what causes or induces stress, anxiety and attention or focus-related issues in toddlers and kids. 

Common Forms of Stress in Kids 

Stress can occur both mentally and psychically when there is some kind of imbalance in the body. For example, when a child has stomach acidity and their tummy beings to hurt, they does not know how to project or explain their pain other than than crying. ADHD (attention deficit hyperactivity disorder), colic, fever, teething issues, fussiness and even redness of skin are other common forms of stress in kids. While there are drugs available to help ease stress and the pain that may come with it, many prefer to look for holistic ways to help their kids, more so if they have to deal with it for a long time.

Heal Various Forms of Stress Naturally with Lapis Lazuli

An excellent way to deal with these problems naturally is by using healing stone, Baltic Essentials Lapis Lazuli. At times, Hazelwood or Amber may also used for the same purpose or the two may be used together for added benefit when it comes to toddlers. Hazelwood has many factoids and advantages that have found to be useful in treating problems with babies, and when used with Hazelwood, it helps fight these forms of stress while being therapeutic in nature. Our products are available  in the form of bracelets and necklaces for kids to comfortably wear them no matter where they are. Just be sure to take all jewelry off at night when they are sleeping. 

Since Baltic Essentials Hazelwood has alkaline properties , it helps in reducing acidity issues when it is in contact with the skin. Another interesting benefit is that many symptoms associated with acidosis are healed as well as free radicals because it is high in antioxidants. Baltic Essentials Amber helps with physical stress such as inflammation, growing pains, any sort and redness of skin. Lapis Lazuli itself alone plays a strong and vital role against stress, distress, anxiety and ADHD in children so this is one healing stone you do not want to overlook. Essentially, Baltic Essentials Lapis Lazuli is the solution to all your problems in a nutshell for kids.

Control Sadness and Depression in Toddlers

Easing Depression in Kids

Sadness and Depression is Real in Toddlers

Although the world is growing and changing every day, there are certain things that will never change such as the gift of human emotions. We all feel happy, scared, anxious, sad, upset, or worried all the time depending on the situation, and children feel the same way too. There isn't a soul in the world that couldn't disagree kids do not feel happiness and bliss, but a lot of people believe it to be preposterous that kids could feel true sadness or depression. In fact, the two were never even considered or accepted in kids until the 1980s. Depression in children is real although many adults can overlook it. In the US, it is believed that 5% of children and teens go through it according to the American Academy of Child & Adolescent Psychiatry. Kids can suffer from this as early as 2-3 years old, and it is important that the signs are monitored to help diminish the problem by rewiring the brain.  

The Difference Between Sadness and Depression

Sadness and depression are alike, yet they are on opposite ends of the spectrum. Feeling a case of the "blues" every once in a while is normal every now and then. There is nothing too unusual about sadness either if they are feeling down because a specific situation caused it; it is temporary even though as parents we want to help our children whenever they are sad too. Where sadness is temporary, depression is chronic. Kids that are down will lack any enthusiasm or energy; they will withdraw from others; they are not able to concentrate; they can perform poorly and go through what is known as "Preschool Depression."  If they can communicate, they may belittle themselves and do not believe they are worthy of anything. Other things to watch out for are:

  • Changes in their normal sleep pattern
  • A sudden increase or decrease in their appetite
  • Constant anger or irritability
  • Extreme sensitivity to rejection
  • Physical complaints that do not respond to treatment
  • Crying or outbursts
  • Thoughts of not wanting to live

 

What Can I Do to Help?

You will have to determine if what your child is feeling is sadness or depression and be there for them. When they are toddlers your child experiences large leaps in the sense they are trying to understand their own feelings as they emotionally grow. One of the main things you should do as a parent is converse with so they can open up and express their
feelings, and open up to self-expression if they can talk. You want to teach them ways to cope if they ever feel it again or find a way to make them feel better by doing something. Help your child when they are sad to help them get out of the slump. The same also goes for toddlers who are depressed, but you want to go that extra mile. It may be possible they are suffering from a behavioral disorder such as ADHD or ODD where depression is a symptom. If the depression is chronic, it is also important to talk to a doctor or therapist.

A Natural Route To Treat Sadness and Depression

The feelings a toddler feels can be controlled by enabling them to realize your feelings to an outcome are a choice and it can be changed. Sadness and depression are not eternal; they can be completely reversed without the help of medication. If you can be there for your child, talk with them, and do what you can to help, it is the right path to take and get them to feel better. Control sadness and depression in toddlers naturally using Baltic Essentials Amethyst and Lemon Amber Necklaces. The amber from the necklace is made from succinic acid will help keep your child's pH balanced and provide them with the energy that they lost. Amethyst works as an analgesic to relieve sadness and depression. It is powerful enough to dissolve feelings of negativity in your toddler too.

A Thoughtful Father’s Day Gift for the Executive Dad

Gift for Daddy

A Working Father

Executive. Upper Management. Boss. Big Kahuna. Big Cheese. Head Honcho. Leader. Director. Do any of these words describe your favorite dad? Maybe all of them do! Dads, who are also working professionals, have a lot on their shoulders; not only do they worry about their families to keep a room over their head, but they also have businesses, companies and other employees to worry about as well. 

Balancing Work and Home

It takes a strong man to carry the weight of the world on his shoulders. At work he’s faced with decisions and deadlines, hiring and firing, profits and losses -- all the things it takes to keep a business running.  It is his job to please his superiors while still demonstrating to his employees what  real leadership is like. He has to do tasks  that he’d rather not do, go to meetings,  and attend conference calls that take up  a lot of time. He has to accept  responsibility and be the place where  the buck stops; he has to please his  customers without sacrificing his bottom  line.

 At home, he’s faced with mortgage  payments and utility bills, school plays and baseball games, lawn mowing and car maintenance, and all the things it takes to ensure his home is a happy one.  He has to make sure his family is financially stable and physically secure while being a loving husband and father. At other times, he has to be the amateur plumber, handyman, and monster slayer.  He also has to impart wisdom to his children and teach them to be responsible and conscientious adults, but he still has to let out his inner child come out every now and again and make time for himself and have fun with his friends.

The Perfect Gift for Dad to Relieve Stress

What can you give the man who has to be everything to everyone all the time and takes it all in stride? Surely he doesn’t need another tie to remind him of work or a socket wrench set to remind him of his “honey-do” list.  A man of his caliber needs something as strong as he is to help ease all that pressure and stress, and to help him stay grounded.  Fortunately, BalticEssentials.com has the very thing he needs- a Hazelwood and Black Onyx Necklace that puts the Earth’s healing energy right where he needs them to be. 

All of that worrying and fast pace between work and home is sure to give him an upset stomach --and possibly a heartburn on occasion when he rushes to eat-- so Hazelwood is there to bring his body back to neutral pH levels by absorbing excess acid.  Black Onyx is a stone that has been highly regarded since ancient times for its ability to enhance one’s determination and strength, bring balance and harmony to the mind and stimulate wise decision making.  When those two substances are combined, they give a hard-working professional dad the tools he needs to succeed. 

So for the man who strives every day to give his children all the advantages he can and strives to be a good boss, make sure he has an extra advantage to combat the hundreds of stressors he encounters on a daily basis with a one-two, punch with the Hazelwood and Black Onyx from Baltic Essentials by his side this Father’s Day.
