Walking and Smelling for Senior Citizen Wellness

When I walk, I take an essential oil sniffer with me (2 or 3 drops on a tissue). I am a certified aromatherapist/trainer for essential oils and I use my sense of smell with essential oils to provide me with the therapeutic benefits of relaxation, increased energy, and pain relief.

Walking gives me the benefits of increased energy, boosts my mood, provides relief from arthritis and helps increase my focus.

Do you know that there is recent research, which indicates walking helps our cognitive abilities?

Have you heard that loss of smell may indicate a decline in cognition?

When you have a moment, listen to my podcast on why smelling and walking is a good thing for senior citizens. Then make some ‘free’ time for yourself to move your body by using the videos below.

Integrative Medicine Conversations

In past blog posts I have written about the ways Integrative Medicine can impact our lives as an addition to our wellness regimens.

This is not to suggest that your medications are not appropriate for your medical needs. However, I believe that conversations about other methods in how we think about pain is worth exploring.

Dr. Andrew Weil, has been a pioneer of new ideas for maintaining a healthful lifestyle, his website has a wealth of information that you will want to explore.

In a recent podcast Dr. Weil discusses ideas with Dr. Howard Schubiner, an internist, pediatrician, and director of the Mind Body Medicine Center, which they refer to as “Mind-Body Approaches” to healing chronic pain.

As I have discussed in the past, the aging process brings about all types of adjustments we must confront. Therefore, when I find something interesting, which I believe can complement your well-being, I am eager to share it with you.

Below is podcast, which discusses integrative methods, for healing chronic pain and what causes it.

Listen when you find an opportunity. It just may help you.

Also available on Apple, Google and other podcast platforms

You can visit Dr. Weil’s website at the links below.
