Last week, I discussed the pitfalls of focusing too much on the news and social media. Rather than letting technology have its way with your brain, why not take charge of your health and sanity? You could trade the time you normally would be investing in negative clickbait for more nourishing practices. As a naturopathic doctor, my goal has been to assist you with this by providing resources and inspiration to “tune-in” to your own strength, rather than tune-out. I hope you are finding this helpful.
This week, I discuss how my favorite naturopathic medicine natural healing tool can support respiratory health. I highlight several studies that demonstrate that essential oils provide a good defense against infectious agents from the nasal passage down to the lungs. I also discuss how filtered air is an important part of breathing easier and staying well.

Naturopathic and Functional Medicine Telehealth Consultations:
Stay Sane and Healthy While Staying Home.
As a naturopathic doctor, I recognize that now, more than ever, we need to ensure our health and resiliency. For this reason, I have offered many free resources that are available online at my website. Also available are supplements that can be ordered online or by phone which can be shipped directly to you.
For those who need more one-on-one assistance, I will continue to offer telehealth services. Various naturopathic and functional medicine tools can provide supportive care for viral infections and help to alleviate anxiety or depression symptoms during this time of heightened stress.
If you would like to consult with me for a naturopathic medicine intake or an essential oils protocol to stay healthy, please fill out the interest form. It will then send you directly to my contact page for more information.
In the meantime, continue to practice your exceptional hygiene, physical distancing, and remember to move your body, eat nourishing foods, and guard your sanity. Please also continue to be kind to yourself and others, be gentle and honor all your emotions that will be shifting, allow yourself time to rest (you will feel tired with all this!), and avoid negative clickbait and newsfeeds that trigger panic.
