Ekam Arogya ~ "one Health"
I created Ekam Arogya LLC in early 2020 with the vision of not only incorporating all of my passions into my career, but also building a wellness community.
Ekam Arogya translates to "One Health" in Sanskrit, the language of yoga. The "One Health" initiative has been blooming in the veterinary and human medical fields for some time now, raising awareness of the importance for unification of human, animal, and environmental health.
Veterinarians experience one of the highest suicide rates of any profession. Mental health of healthcare workers is in crisis. Burnout and compassion fatigue is rampant in a wide range of caregiving professions, including animal trainers. Through my LLC, I provide tools and services for those who, like myself, are part of the One Health movement - particularly through improving mental health, animal health, and nurturing an appreciation for the environment.
"This is why I hold my wellness retreats in the middle of the African bush, where attendees can unplug and experience wildlife up close while undergoing a physical cleanse."
Medicinal and therapeutic essential oils
In 2018, a few days before a solo trip backpacking northern Thailand, I had a flare-up of infected wisdom teeth. I put together a medicine kit for my travels and began using Clove oil for painful gums - it worked like magic and kept pain and inflammation at bay until I was home and could get my wisdom teeth removed. This started my journey into plant magic and DIY self-care practices. Strictly avoiding anything containing "fragrance/(parfum)" I now make my own wet and dry shampoo, deodorant, counter cleaner, toothpaste, and mouthwash. The opportunity to use self-made toiletries imparts an indescribable feeling of self-love. My ethos behind sharing the oils, however, goes far deeper...
