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.
As you no doubt know, there are 5 major senses: Smell, Sight, Hearing, Taste and Touch.
SMELL is the one that I have been reading about recently.
When you have a moment, listen to a brief explanation on how your sense of smell can assist your well-being.
Based on recent observations, I believe that COVID-19 has sparked a new interest in the role smell can play in our well-being.
As a Certified Aromatherapist, I am trained in the role that aromatic tools can be used to assist in an individual’s wellness regimen. In fact, it is currently one of methods used in Integrative Medicine, which complements a person’s conventional medical program. Not as a replacement but in addition to. Users of Aromatherapy are advised to check with their doctors before engaging in these methods.
