Our Story

Welcome to AHQ Essentials, the newest chapter in my holistic healing journey that began over 20 years ago with Alternative Health Quest.

My passion for holistic medicine started with humble beginnings, treating family and friends with care and compassion. I then had the privilege of working alongside the esteemed Dr. P. Harding MD at Prairie Trail Family Medicine in Aurora IL, where I polished my skills and deepened my commitment to healing.

After my time at Prairie clinic, I continued my practice at the Vital Energy Services, Inc Holistic Wellness & Yoga Center in Woodridge, IL before eventually bringing Alternative Health Quest to the comfort of my own private residence, where I could provide personalized care to my cherished clients.

In 2024, I took a leap of faith, encouraged by my son Simon, BBA (who also serves as my business manager) and my loyal clients, to launch AHQ Essentials. This online store is a platform where I can share my favorite tried and tested products at competitive prices, carefully selected to support holistic wellness. We are taking a thoughtful approach to curating our product offerings, adding one item at a time to ensure that each aligns with our values and commitment to quality.

Your feedback and suggestions matter to us, and we invite you to reach out through calls, texts, or emails – we are here to listen and support you on your wellness journey in any way we can. Thank you for joining us on this exciting new venture. I look forward to sharing the healing power of holistic products with you through AHQ Essentials. Together, let's embrace wellness and holistic living for a healthier, happier life.

Warm regards,

Alina Engel
