Aromatherapy FAQ?!

Image
Hello! 
It has been a long time! Many of you have shared you missed my blog posts. Honestly, I have missed posting them. Unfortunately, time got away from me and life happened and I lost track. But I am back! I am excited to share with you all again!

I have redesigned and revamped Evolve Senior Solutions, LLC to better serve my patients, their families, and even working to introduce some other passions of mine, in addition, I want to work more to educate and inform on health & wellness, because they are different things, you know 😊 ; but we will work to continue to discuss that concept. 
Recently, I have received 3 suspicious emails from someone, whom I have never spoken to on the phone, on the web, or in-person, but they email me some random questions regarding me and aromatherapy. The emails are the same each time, and the person emails questions, that I assume they want answered, but I have not answered, because I am still sort of old fashioned, phone calls are important. 😊

Mental Health: A Holistic Perspective

πŸ‘‹ Hello and Welcome!

This is the official Evolve Senior Solutions, LLC blog by Danielle Harris.

This blog post was inspired by some recent encounters, American Holistic Nurses Association (AHNA) Beginnings December 2016 | Volume 36 Number 6, and Discover the Anxiety-Busting Power of Aromatherapy by Gina Rafkind, CPC, Reflexologist, Aromatherapy Consultant.

Mental health overall is something we ignore. I am not sure if it is because we are not aware of the impact and importance mental health has on/in our lives and on our health, but it is something I want to discuss and I am pretty passionate about. Recently, many famous people have began to speak out about mental health and even began to start up organizations to help with awareness.

Many people are living with mental health conditions. I believe that like diabetes, high blood pressure, and asthma we as nurses should educate patients on how to manage mental health conditions.


Please note, a person’s overall mental health is a produc…

Influenza or ‘flu’ can occur year-round.
