Coping with Epilepsy

This video discusses the effects of epilepsy both on the individual and their family members.  It can be helpful to find ways to express emotions through art as well as talking.  kunmidrawing

I was contacted by Healthline which has published an educational article about more of the medical aspects of epilepsy, particularly the effects it has on different systems in the body. I hope you might find this article helpful as you seek out more information about this illness.

July Update

We have lots of news this month as I try out some new things that I hope benefit my clients, future clients, and others looking for support.

I’ve  just started a YouTube channel! After success with some of my Skype clients, I realized the potential for reaching many more people with short videos on wellness topics. My first video covers job loss, where I address how it can affect people, how people often cope with it, as well as some tips that I have found to be helpful in order to help people cope with this transition.  The second video covers self-esteem and self-doubt, a blog topic I covered in November; however, in this video I’ve added some new content I hope you’ll find helpful.  Please consider subscribing, commenting, or providing feedback (ie. topics you’d like covered) regarding any of these videos.

doterra oils logo_fullThis month I held an open house at my office July 20th to show folks my office as well as introduce doTERRA essential oils.  As a wellness advocate for doTERRA folks can purchase through me. Essential oils have been used throughout history for multiple purposes. Egyptians used aromatic essential oils extensively in medical practice, beauty treatment, food preparation, and in religious ceremony. Greeks used essential oils in their practices of therapeutic massage and aromatherapy, and Romans used aromatic oils to promote health and personal hygiene. Influenced by the Greeks, Romans, Chinese, and Indian Ayurvedic use of aromatic herbs, the Persians began to refine distillation methods for extracting essential oils from aromatic plants. Modern use of essential oils has continued to grow as health scientists and medical practitioners continue to research and validate the numerous health and wellness benefits of therapeutic-grade essential oil. Let me know if you have further questions about doTERRA essential oils, or if you would be interested in sampling any in particular.

For this month, I first cover assertiveness — using the example of someone you find difficult to work with and how you might approach this rather than holding it in.

Looking forward to sharing more with you!  Hope your summer is going well.

My Best,

Jasmine
