Terpenes and Terpene Deficiency

FAQ: Terpene Deficiency

Understanding Terpene Deficiency: An Informative Guide

What is Terpene Deficiency?
Terpene Deficiency Syndrome (TDS), as conceptualized by Eric Fishman, M.D., of MONQ, describes a set of non-specific wellness challenges that some individuals notice when lacking adequate terpenes in their environment. It's worth noting that TDS is not a medically recognized condition.

How Does One Experience Terpene Deficiency?
Terpenes are aromatic compounds found in nature. If you spend a lot of time in urban settings devoid of diverse plant life, you may be less exposed to these aromatic molecules.

Potential Ways to Reconnect with Terpenes
While no official treatment exists for TDS, some opt to reconnect with nature, where terpenes are abundant, as a way to enhance their well-being. Activities like forest bathing offer an immersive experience in a terpene-rich environment. MONQ’s Aromatherapy Anywhere® also offers a convenient way to experience terpenes, though it's not a substitute for professional medical advice.

Is Terpene Deficiency Contagious?
TDS is not contagious; it reflects the quality of air and environmental terpenes one is exposed to.

Identifying Terpene Deficiency
If you frequently inhabit urban spaces and feel general discomfort, you might wonder if you're lacking terpenes in your environment. However, these symptoms can have various causes, and consultation with a healthcare provider is advised.

Should I Consult a Medical Professional?
If you experience ongoing discomfort, it’s advisable to consult a healthcare provider for proper diagnosis and treatment. Enhancing your environment with terpenes is not a substitute for medical care.
