Is Your Community CLEAN?

As time progresses, we think it is safe to say that we are maneuvering under a strict cleanliness guide. At the very least, it is the one thing we know for sure.

Unfortunately, COVID has presented challenges in communities that have been difficult to navigate. Each day, we struggle with deciding our next steps as the unknown is great. Emotionally and physically, we are challenged as each day passes to create a safe environment. Statistically, the vintage folks are at a much higher risk, but we believe that natural solutions can be quite effective and consoling.

We have been extremely impressed with some implementations that have been occurring in communities and facilities. Essential oils and aromatherapy have been used for thousands of years and can be added to aid in cleanliness. This tool is popping up more and more in the medical community as a way to aid them for their patient care. It is such a positive step in the direction to supporting the body and brain at being...

Post-Traumatic Stress: This is My Story

I sit here holding your hand with my gloved hand, stroking it gently with my thumb back and forth and back and forth. I look into your eyes and give you a look to reassure you. We spend time together - me exchanging words with you, making sounds, or humming a song through my face mask and goggles. Your breaths become rapid. We call your family. They get to see you one last time. They cry, but you give them a look that everything will be alright. You are at peace. Your vitals are dropping and breaths become even more rapid. You look back at me and close your eyes. 

Working the frontlines over the last few months has been incredibly rewarding yet exhausting, touching yet sad, hopeful yet hopeless, all at the same time. I’m one of the many that sit with your loved ones or patients with dementia day in and day out as they struggle with COVID-19. I’m the one of many that help feed and take care of them. I’m the one of many that rush to grab the oxygen when they are...

The Pandemic: A Look at a Teenager's Experience and How He's Coping

My name is Kaiden, and I am 16 years old. These are my top 3 things to combat the blues these days. It has been pretty stressful being in quarantine at times. I am missing my friends and soccer. My family has done a great job at creating things to do. I really do enjoy being with them, but when I start to feel a little out of control, there are a couple of things that I go to.

One is soccer; I have nets and a field in my backyard, so being outside in the sun running off my energy or troubles is huge for me. I have SID and ADHD so moving around is the only option to release for me sometimes!

Second, whenever it is nice out, my mom always sends us out in the backyard, so it's natural for me to use that as a coping skill. The sunshine always makes me feel better.

Third, I have been using essential oils for 8 years now to control all kinds of issues. I am pretty good at remembering which oils are good for what, but my mom has an awesome reference book about our oils in the...

Anxiety Has Nothing To Do About Today

Today I sit here, as the co-owner of NeuroEssence, having developed the symptoms of COVID-19. Many thoughts go through my head – how will I continue to care for my family, how can I continue to service our clients remotely, how is it possible to lead others when I’m sick myself. I even have had morbid thoughts, brief thoughts of worsening symptoms, having to move from my home, needing to be hospitalized and even ventilated. What if I die?

All these thoughts came to a screeching halt when I realized that my negative, swirling and spiraling thoughts aren’t helping my situation. They are making it worse, causing me to get up at 230AM and losing sleep.

My kids are worried about Mommy and will I ever get better; my husband is concerned about my health – his wife, mother of his children, and best friend. My family checks on me in fear of losing me, and my friends think about the what if. My colleagues worry about our future together.

My anxiety, and the anxiety of...

Does Social Distancing Mean Healthy Distancing Too?

Our leading followers of NeuroEssence comprises of mostly women, I think primarily due to the professions we support. So we asked a man's perspective on how his social distancing is going...

"Ok, so day one of getting back to being serious about being healthy. It’s been two weeks for me of being at home with the family and it’s been a blast. We’ve been veggin' out as we like to say ...watching movies, making snacks, sleeping in...basically, treating every day likes it’s Saturday. But, it is affecting my body!

So now back to business! I, myself, am getting back to my schedule of Mito2Max, PB Assist, Terrazyme, and Turmeric. I take these once in the morning with a protein probiotic shake or a light breakfast. I will do a second round of Mito2Max at around 2 o’clock to finish out my day. I am also going to fast 3 days a week and see how my doTERRA regimen works out. I might have to adjust my times only because I have to eat to take the pills.

In addition to...
