doTerra essential oils and the Zyto scan compass at Sage Health

Find Your doTerra Essential Oil Match!

The team at Sage Health is super excited to now offer doTerra Essential Oils!

We’re offering them in a variety of ways at our health center including…

  • With their AromaTouch technique as a special add-on service to any massage
  • Purchase the oils or even a kit thru us. Just ask our staff how!
  • With a ZYTO scan reading to find out which doTerra essential oils are right specifically for you

Let’s focus on the third bullet point for this post.

The ZYTO Scan Compass offers the ability for us to conduct a Bio-Survey of your body, which addresses 76 biomarkers in the human body. To learn more about how the ZYTO scanner process works please read our recent blog, “The ZYTO Scan: Overview and Benefits for Health and Wellness“, which goes into greater depth about this cutting edge technology.

With the ZYTO scan compass, we utilize its technology to scan your body for any areas that might be in need of assistance with the supplementation of a specific essential oil – either aromatically or topically. For example, it can detect if your immune system is in need of a boost so it might match you with a well-known doTerra oil blend called, On Guard, which contains a unique blend of therapeutic grade oils known to help with immunity. Or perhaps mentally you’re enduring a stressful time in your life — the Zyto scanner will likely detect this, in which case it might suggest an oil such as peppermint, lavender or lemon to help enhance your spirit and calm your mind. The scan is subjective to whatever your overall needs are at the time so it’s a good idea to have a scan done every so often as a routine check-in. The possibilities are endless!

Several of our staff members, including our amazing esthetician, Naomi Grace, are now conducting ZYTO scans to help match our clients with the right essential oils for enhanced wellness.

Spring: The Ideal Time of Year for Cleansing and Detoxing

Did you know that spring is the best time to detox the body and cleanse? It makes sense if you think about the concept of “Spring Cleaning”, which can easily be translated from home to health.

“…But I just did a cleanse in January?”

Many of us rush to cleanse our bodies just after the holidays when we’ve indulged (on an abundance) of rich foods that resonate with the season. We’ve gorged ourselves and likely feel a little tired, sluggish, and perhaps even guilty for “overdoing” it. It’s an ongoing pattern where come January we’re faced not only with the above mentioned emotional and physical feelings, we’re also bombarded with media headlines that tell us to “get back on the healthy bandwagon” and “detox from the holidays.” Now, before we go on, we’ll state for the record that it’s not wrong to get back to being mindful of our eating habits after the most indulgent eating and drinking time year; but performing a full blown detox at the beginning of year may be counterintuitive to the seasonal rhythms our bodies are meant to endure during the thick winter. We often forget that even though the holidays have just ended, winter has actually just begun — this especially rings true if you live in a mild, warm climate such as Southern California. Despite our non-stop lifestyles, winter is a time when we’re meant to slow down, reduce activity, and conserve energy. Our bodies, whether we want them to or not, go into a form of hibernation mode. Long in the short of it, eating foods that warm and comfort us is par for the course during winter.

So why is spring the ideal time for a cleanse?

The days of spring bring longer, warmer days, where new growth and regeneration is abundant. At this time of year, our bodies emerge from this dormant winter state, calling us to rejuvenate and revitalize our overall sense of being — making spring the perfect time of year for cleansing and detoxing the body!

At Sage Health, we take a holistic approach to healing the body. Many of our healing methods are inspired by traditional Chinese Medicine protocols. These methodologies are derived heavily from historic recognition of how closely humans are interconnected with nature and the seasons. To further elaborate, in Chinese Medicine, the element that represents spring is wood, which includes the liver and its ancillary organ, the gallbladder. Cleansing these two organs in the springtime directly correlates with the balance of nature and the seasonal rhythms that surround us. Spring cleaning is an opportunity to clear our bodies (and environments) of the ‘junk’, allowing us to detoxify, rejuvenate, and transform to achieve a better sense of well-being, health, and vitality.

So are you ready for some spring cleaning of the mind and body? At Sage Health, we proudly offer the 21 Day Cleanse from Standard Process. This cleanse is unique in that it combines eating whole foods, drinking nutrient-rich shakes, supplements made from whole food ingredients, and light exercise to help move and release toxins from the body. With this cleanse, Sage Health also offers a full consultation as well as a body composition reading both before and after the cleanse so you can see your results. This cleanse can be done dairy free as well.

We’ll end with stating that regardless of the type of cleanse you choose to do, it’s best to consult with a physician to make sure it’s the safe and optimal path for you. If you’re pregnant or breastfeeding, please make sure to check with your doctor to ensure the safety and health of you and your baby.
