Getting sick during treatment for recovery from an addiction and dual diagnosis issues is common. Not only are there seasonal illnesses to which everyone falls vulnerable, but there are ongoing exchanges of colds and viruses within the program. During the treatment phase for addiction, the body is still fresh from the last interaction with drugs and alcohol. Typically, the last moments of using for someone seeking treatment were not light. Years of abuse leaves the body weakened in its immune system and natural ability to heal. Specific areas of the brain which are chemically compromised due to addiction can contribute to sickness as well. For example, the production of dopamine, serotonin, melatonin, and vitamin D. Living in tight quarters, sharing bathrooms, and sitting in the same room for group therapy can cause a cold or a virus to spread quite quickly from one weakened immune system to the next. Eating a healthy and organic diet, getting enough sleep, maintaining hydration, and using holistic remedies can help stave off symptoms and improve immunity function.
How Essential Oils Work
The oils are absorbed through the skin or breathed in through the nose. Taking medications requires digestion and metabolizing the chemical compounds and waiting for them to work through the bloodstream. Oils administer their properties quickly, creating instant effects. You can use a roll on oil stick, put oil into a diffuser, or just open the cap to a bottle of oil and breathe it in for immediate healing.
