As many as 20% of Americans suffer from some kind of autoimmune disease. Studies focused on autoinflammatory disorders take place more often. Diseases that were once classified as autoimmune diseases are in the autoinflammatory category. People suffering from either may find that they have similar symptoms. Inflammation and dryness aren't easy to deal with- but these tips will help.
Both types of disorders can cause dryness throughout the body. People with Sjogren’s syndrome or even arthritis can suffer from dry eyes and mouth. Auto-inflammatory disorders may affect most of the systems in the body. Including the joints, internal organs, muscles or skin.
Can Sea Buckthorn Help?
Sea buckthorn oils have fatty acids and antioxidants. Sea buckthorn seed oil contains omega 3 and sea buckthorn berry oil contains omega 7. Both oils have levels of omegas 6 and 9. Many people who suffer from these kinds of ailments turn to sea buckthorn to help ease the symptoms.
It's thought that the combination of fatty acids and other phytonutrients (including antioxidant qualities) support healthy immune response and it's symptoms- like dryness. Inflammatory disorders commonly cause chronic dryness as a symptom. Sea buckthorn oil is known for supporting tissues of the body on a cellular level, helping to reintroduce moisture. Sea buckthorn oil has a nourishing effect to the body on a cellular level.
What Kind of Sea Buckthorn oil is Best?
We suggest a blend of the sea buckthorn berry oil and sea buckthorn seed oil. The Omega-7 Complete capsules are our best seller because it's got all of the benefits of sea buckthorn oil. Or if you prefer, the DIY Drop in Kit- which is a great way to get both oils without the capsule (good for vegans or people who have a hard time swallowing).
We always suggest the combination of both kinds of sea buckthorn oil for nearly every application. That’s because you will get a well-rounded dose of omegas and phytonutrients with a blend. Even though the two oils are similar, they have different nutritional properties.
Other Ways to Feel Better
People suffering from inflammatory and autoimmune troubles can help themselves by making lifestyle changes. Sea buckthorn oil is a great way to incorporate good fatty acids into your diet. Add spices that have anti-inflammatory properties into your everyday food. Try turmeric, garlic or cayenne pepper.
If your health condition makes you tired, moderate exercise can help. In fact, the body releases anti-inflammatory proteins into the body during a workout? A simple walk or jog will do but just keep moving. Drink plenty of water. It's another easy but important step to help the body deal with inflammation.
Finally, get some sleep. Commit to a steady sleep schedule that gives you least 8-10 hours per night. This will help bring you closer to feeling comfortable again. Some inflammatory and autoimmune disorders are not curable. Nevertheless, you can ease some of your symptoms with these simple tips.
