“As within, so without,” is a metaphysical truth, which is a perfect example of why stress pimples pop-out on our skin. Stress is an inescapable reality of modern life. It has been linked to many disorders, ranging from acne or pimples to stomach problems to heart disease.
Imagine this scenario: you wake up late, jump into the shower, hustle into your suit, grab a yogurt, spin out of the driveway and find yourself in traffic resembling a parking lot. You’re late to work, you missed a meeting and the boss is angry. Welcome to the modern stressful life.
In ancient times, people were often faced with real, imminent dangers. Their body went into a defense mode or “flight or fight” syndrome. The vast difference between then and now is that when the threat was over, the ancients went on about their day, hunting and gathering. They also expended energy climbing hills, chasing deer and scrounging for berries.
Our bodies still go into fight or flight, but modern stressors do not calm quickly and the body remains in an unnatural stress situation. We tend to accumulate inner-tension, which manifests outwardly on the skin as stress pimples, due to excess skin oil and inflammation.
Pimples or acne are in actuality, clogged pores.
If we must function under unfavorable conditions for an extended time, the adrenal glands continuously release cortisol, a stress hormone. As a result, the immune system becomes imbalanced because it remains in the fight or flight mode.
Acne or pimples are a disorder resulting from the action of stress hormones on the skin’s oil glands. This leads to clogged pores and outbreaks of lesions, commonly known as pimples. Skin lesions may form on the face, back, chest, neck and shoulders.
Although pimples or acne are not life-threatening, severe acne can lead to permanent disfigurement, which leads to low self-esteem, which brings on more stress.
Teens have a particular challenge with pimples. Increased levels of hormones called androgens (male sex hormone) are released in both sexes during the teen years. Too much androgens cause excessive secretions of sebum and the sebaceous (skin’s oil glands) enlarge and clog the pores to produce pimples.
It is unfortunate, but the pimples may follow us into adulthood. Women may continue to experience outbreaks of pimples when they are premenstrual, due to the male sex hormone that is released after they ovulate.
Repetitive tension from stress compromises the immune system. A compromised immune system is not able to attack bacteria that invade the skin pores. In addition, the immune system cannot recognize what is attacking and pours out antibodies in defense. Unfortunately, the antibodies cause the sebaceous gland to secrete extra sebum, creating the formation of pimples.
Here are some kinds of lesions that may appear on your skin:
Our skin is the largest organ in our body; it is a protective covering that lives and breathes. It is an indicator of the state of our total-body health. The skin is a vital part of our immune system.
Certain lifestyle changes can be implemented to help treat symptoms of stress and stress related pimples.
Green vegetables – are natural medicine and provide anti-inflammatory actions for the skin. They are also detoxifying, so they work to treat and heal symptoms. Juicing is a good natural way to get adequate daily vegetables.
Stress Management – daily exercise is the best stress management protocol. Whether it’s a spontaneous walk down a country road or a gym workout, your stress will decrease. Tai Chi is a whole body, yet gentle form of martial arts that will greatly reduce stress.
Modern society dictates that we fit into a “beautiful” mold. If we’re too fat, we’re not beautiful. If we have pock marks and skin disfigurement from pimples, we’re not beautiful.
Most individuals form their self-image based on parameters the eyes-of-society determine. It is a shame that humans cannot see a person’s inner-essence rather than totally focus on the beautiful body.
Are you one of those people who perceive you aren’t beautiful because of unsightly scars of acne? Do you tend to refuse social invitations and prefer to isolate because of low self-image? What if we told you the scars can be removed in a holistic manner and you could have clear skin forever?
Stress pimples are the outer result of an internal dysfunction. As our “within” malfunctions, our “without” malfunctions simultaneously. Pimples are signals of a whole-body disorder. This is only one reason one should seek holistic treatment.
If left untreated, additional symptoms such as heart disease and high blood pressure will follow. Curing stress pimples holistically will focus on the whole body, not simply one cause. For instance, knowing stress pimples result from inner distress, does it make sense to douse messy creams over the outer skin?
Conventional medical practitioners prescribe suppressive prescription drugs, such as the antibiotic tetracycline for acne. While these pills may act as a band-aid and provide a temporary fix, the pimples will reoccur, because the total body isn’t healed. The holistic approach provides a permanent cure for acne and it does not recur.
