One of the results of the Pandemic (COVID19) has been to draw our attention to our sense of smell in a big way. This has caused an onslaught of articles and discussions about aromatherapy and the benefits of using our sense of smell. The medical community has even brought the methods of using aromatic methods to their patients. And the beauty community has a newfound interest in the benefits we can gain from exploring the plant world where we can find therapeutic benefits from including them in our well-being program.
In this post, I am featuring Amy Anthony, (website NYCAromatica) and her classes, which are among the best. I am a NAHAcertified aromatherapist who has taken many classes in order to learn about the best and most safe methods for using essential oils and integrative medicinal methods as part of my wellness regimen. Some years ago, I had the pleasure to have Amy Anthony as one of my teachers at the New York Institute of Aromatherapy (closed now due to the Pandemic).
Amy has a website filled with aromatherapy solutions, potions, and a “poetic” method of providing this service to you. Take a look at her website to enjoy the many facets of aromatic wellness techniques and ideas to include them in your wellness regimen for therapeutic benefits.
Amy Anthony is modest in her explanation “About” herself. These are a few thoughts about what I think she offers in her training and consultations. 1) An aficionada’s grasp of the subject matter. 2) Clarity and ease of communicating – even in the more complex materials. 3) A certain generosity of spirit in her communication.
I am eager to share this information for May 2022 Mental Health Month. According to its website Mental Health America (MHA) is a community-based, non-profit organization founded in 1909.
The focus of MHA is to help people who have been living with the stress of the pandemic and to provide assistance with “early identification and intervention for those at risk”. And, this year’s theme is “Mental Health Month – Back to Basics.”
FYI – Below is a description from their website:
In 2014, Mental Health America (MHA) launched our online mental health screening: a collection of online, free, confidential, anonymous, and scientifically validated screening tools to help individuals understand and learn more about their mental health.
Thankfully, as a society we have progressed to a consciousness where a woman who identifies with her baldness in a way that she feels depicts beauty, is a welcome change to the hair loss challenge.
Nevertheless, it does not negate the fact that when a woman is confronted with unexpected hair loss, when she has had no previous symptoms – for example, Thyroid issues it can be alarming.
For a number of women, who have had the recent Pandemic virus for more than a few weeks, Covid19 has been the suspected cause for some of them losing “globs” of their hair. A travel nurse, Juli Fisher, reported to WebMD News that she noticed she was losing “globs” of hair in the shower several weeks into her Covid19 illness. She later learned about others who were suffering similarly from a FaceBook group the “Long Haulers”. Dermatologists refer to this type of hair loss as telogen effluvium, a temporary condition due to physical or emotional stress. Oftentimes the hair grows back within a year.
