Revisiting a Conversation about our Sense of Smell

A recent, on-going topic and cause of concerns being discussed since the onset of COVID-19 is the sense of Smell.

You may recall in August 2021, I covered this topic on my Wellness Connections podcast #11, with Frauke Galia, of Falk Aromatherapy.

In that podcast Frauke explained that there are various types of smell dysfunction. Here are two:
Anosmia, for example, became a keyword to describe when one is infected with COVID-19, and permanently or temporarily loses the sense of Smell. Anosmia = loss.

There’s also Parosmia, which is Smell dysfunction that distorts the smell of things. One example I read about is that sweet smells may instead smell rotten. Parosmia = distorts.

Our sense of Smell is being recognized in a new light. At my Website you can learn more about Smell dysfunction at the link below.
