Our Methods

We at WholeAroma are adamant about using a holistic approach to better health and restoration. We provide education and guidance to you to help improve and/or restore you back to a healthy state, tailored specifically to you and your concerns. We use a variety of tools to aid this process, including:

  • Adjustments to diet
  • Adjustments to lifestyle such as exercise, sleep hygiene, and stress management
  • The use of aromatic plant extracts such as aromatic waters, essential oils, and other aromatic plant extracts
  • The use of herbal extracts and other herbal remedies
  • The use of herbal and/or vitamin or mineral supplements
  • Functional medicine principles such as bloodwork interpretation

Additionally, since we can only do what falls within our own specializations, we work with medical professionals such as your doctors, as well as massage therapists, acupuncturists, structural specialists, chiropractors, and many other practitioners in various fields.  In this way, we can offer you a well-rounded program that can bring your health and well-being back into balance.

Diet and Nutrition

Greek physician Hippocrates of Kos once said: “Let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food.”

Like Hippocrates, we believe that a proper nutrient-dense diet is one of the most if not the most important contributing factor to either good or poor health. Because of this, many of our programs include adjustments to diet, not only to ensure proper nutrition, but also to ferret out food sensitivities and/or allergies. In some cases, the adjustments can be minor; in others, they can be major; and in some cases, these dietary changes can either be permanent or short-term. If one is willing to make those adjustments all at once, one can achieve results quite quickly. However, we understand that making major adjustments to diet can be intimidating for many, so we often recommend one or two minor adjustments, then add adjustments as we go along until one is operating under the full major adjustments. In this way, it makes it easier for one to acclimate to the major changes, resulting greater success.

Lifestyle Adjustments

In addition to diet, lifestyle is a major contributor to our health state. If we don’t get enough restful sleep, our health can suffer greatly. If we fail to exercise regularly, our health can suffer greatly. And if we fail to manage the stressors of life, our health can suffer greatly. We will evaluate your lifestyle and make the recommendations necessary to help you become successful in achieving optimum health.

Aromatherapy and Aromatic Medicine

Aromatherapy has long been used as a tool in the quest to achieve optimum health when health has suffered. More often than not and historically, aromatherapy has been used for the management of psychological concerns such as nervousness, anxiety, insomnia, fears, and a whole host of others. These concerns are almost always addressed by the inhalation of various essential oils and/or the ingestion of aromatic waters.

These concerns are almost always addressed by the inhalation of various essential oils and/or the ingestion of aromatic waters.

Finally, aromatherapy has a branch that is termed “aromatic medicine.” Aromatic medicine is used to address many internal health concerns. Aromatic medicine requires a special expertise and training far above and beyond what most aromatherapist receive because it involves dose forms that are very carefully and meticulously calculated and formulated. Because we at WholeAroma are trained in aromatic medicine, we utilize this method if necessary as a part of your health restoration program. Aromatic medicine often employs methods such as nebulizer solutions, steam inhalations, suppositories, pessaries, and capsules as a part of your recommended program. If needed and because they cannot be purchased, we will formulate and supply these ministrations to you for your recommended program.

Herbal Medicine

Herbal medicine has been in use for literally thousands of years in some form. History shows a strong use of herbal medicine as main therapies all the way up to the late 19th century. We at WholeAroma utilize herbal medicine when necessary as part of our recommended programs. With a rich history in use, herbal medicine has been shown to be quite effective in almost any health program for the purpose of restoring proper health from almost any condition. Herbal medicine consists of many forms and is most often used in tradition western methodologies. Herbal medicine makes use of herbal remedies such as tinctures and other extracts, poultices, foments, capsules, and medicinal teas. But herbal medicine not only includes these herbal ministrations, but most importantly it utilized assessment techniques such as tongue assessment to determine the tissue state of the body. Is the body too hot or too cold? Is an area of the body too relaxed or too constricted? Is the body too damp or too dry? These are major indications of not only the state of one’s health, but also a great help in determining how a practitioner formulates for health concerns.

Functional Medicine

Functional medicine is a heath science that can provide many clues in the evaluation of health that neither herbalism nor other modalities are equipped to provide. The use of functional medicine techniques gives us more insight into what the body is doing. Through bloodwork and the interpretation thereof, functional medicine can indicate trouble spots within the body. These trouble spots can occur in entire body systems or in specific organs. Functional medicine can also provide indications of nutrient deficiencies, which can often be corrected either by changes in diet and/or supplementation. We at WholeAroma use these techniques as a part of your health evaluation to better formulate a health restoration program that will provide the best outcomes for you.
