Life Sprout Family Wellness Center
Essential Oils are an Integral Part of Our Practice, and Provide Healing Elements that Help Support Your Body On Your Journey Towards Health
In addition to being pediatric & perinatal chiropractor wellness practitioner and integrative women's health coach, Dr. Alex is also an Essential Oil Coach certified through the Essential Oil Institute and American Association of Drugless Practitioners. With this certification Dr. Alex has specific training in essential oils and how they can work to support the body with different ailments and conditions.
As a disclaimer, essential oils do not “cure” anything, but can offer support and relief in a similar manner to traditional western medical pharmaceuticals. Many oils contain the same compounds that are synthesized in a lab and reproduced in a drug. Essential oils have very few side effects, many benefits, and are able to be used by everyone from infants to grandparents (with correct dilution and knowledge of the risks and benefits associated with each oil).
Having first learned about oils and started using them on her own, Dr. Alex now incorporates them into not only her own life, but also the lifestyle programs we offer.
What is an Essential Oil?
Essential oils are natural aromatic compounds found in the seeds, bark, stems, roots, and flowers of plants. They can be both beautifully and powerfully fragrant, eliciting profound emotional responses. Yet the use of essential oils goes well beyond their fragrant appeal. Used throughout history for their medicinal and therapeutic benefits, essential oils can be used as natural alternatives in holistic self-care practices. Their unique chemistry allows them to be used aromatically and applied topically to the skin, while other essential oils can be used as dietary aids to promote vitality and well being.
At Life Sprout we use and stock all Certified Therapeutic Grade oils. Dr. Alex is a Wellness Advocate with doTERRA. In the oil quality hierarchy these oils offer the most rigorous testing to insure the purity of the oils and the presence of the healing compounds they contain. While we have a sample of most of doTERRA's oils to sample, it is most cost effective to order directly from the company.
