Want to Curb your Sugar Carvings??
Its Autumn and as we start to layer & hide under those warm fuzzy clothes, sipping on delicious Pumpkin Spice Lattes; we can easily pack on extra weight unknowingly. This doesn't get any easier because we have a slew of holiday festivities with the coming months. If you and your families are anything like ours that we like our desserts and treats. Since we always have some form of aromatherapy going in our homes we decided to do some digging; why not use essential oils to help keep those stubborn pounds off of our waistlines! This is what we found......Who knew that it is possible to loose weight and even keep it off with this little well researched trick!
Did you know that you can increase your ability to smell through something called "Scent Exercising". While doing research for John Hopkins University, Robert Anholt, PhD and professor of Zoology at North Carolina University discovered that most people have the ability to detect subtle differences in various smells.
The test subjects exposed themselves to as many natural odours as they could and eventually trained themselves to recognize the scents. It is believed that those who loose their sense of smell often end up gaining weight. A study done by Alan Hirsch, MD head of Chicago's Smell and Taste Treatment & Research Foundation wondered if the opposite was true; could scents help with weight loss.
Their study gave 3,000 overweight individuals aromas to inhale. Some long time dieters had tried almost everything since their early 20's with a total of 66 different diet programs. The test subjects were directed to sniff six times an aromatic mixture when they felt hungry. In about six months those that were given a sweet scented mixture to sniff lost an average of FIVE pounds per month.
We had shared in our October 2016 News Letter How do we smell; the brain is the part that does the scent smelling. To quote the news letter "Some researches say that the concept of odours having a direct affect upon our minds is incredible and needs to be explored further; especially when studies that suggest essential oils have a direct impact on the human central nervous system." Alan Hirsch discovered that "Aromatherapy" has an effect (tricks) the brain's satiety centre within the Hypothalamus into thinking it has eaten enough. Therefore giving the individual "sniffing" the mixture to feel as if they have eaten enough and as a benefit loose the unhealthy weight.
