I hope this finds you safely and healthfully tucked in at home, as recommended by the Centers for Disease Control.

My office will remain open for the foreseeable future to serve you. Of course, this is a fluid situation, and I will keep you apprised of any changes. Science confirms the impact stress has on our health. Acupuncture is excellent at reducing cortisol levels, the stress hormone that is a direct impediment to a healthy functioning immune system.

I care for all of my clients and ask that if you are feeling unwell or have symptoms of cough, cold or flu, to please not come into the office. Cancellation fees have been waived to allow patients to cancel as needed.

In addition, we are taking the following precautions, such as:

  • Providing gowns for each patient to use;
  • Changing table paper and linens between patients;
  • Covering eye pillows and wrist supports with double-layer facial tissues;
  • Sanitizing surfaces and frequently touched items such as call buttons between patients with disinfectant that kills 99.9% bacteria and viruses;
  • Keeping patients sequestered to adhere to self-distancing recommendations.

Before you enter suite 200, please use the restroom directly next door to wash your hands for 20 seconds and use the paper towel to open both the restroom door and our suite’s door handle. We have placed a trash can inside our suite for your convenience.

In my last email, I recommended boosting your immune system at this crucial time. I take the following products twice daily as part of my Prevention protocol. These can be ordered through my online dispensary and drop-shipped to your door, allowing you to adhere to social distancing guidelines. While some of the following items are currently on backorder, I encourage you to get in the queue, as product is constantly replenished and orders will be filled in order of date.

Vitamin C+ BioFizz Offers more than 2000% RDA vitamin C, plus quercetin and hesperidin to reduce histamine response.

Zinc LozengesHave been associated with faster resolution of nasal congestion, nasal drainage, and sore throat, as well as improvement of cough.

Beta Glucans Scientific studies have shown that Beta-1,3/1,6-D-Glucan supports a healthy immune system through its ability to maintain several aspects of the body’s normal immune functions.

Mushroom Immune Support Offering a unique combination of mushroom mycelium and fruitbodies, providing a diverse range of constituents to help balance the immune system.

If there is a silver lining to this crisis, it is knowing the importance of keeping our bodies, minds and spirits healthy and well.  May we come out of this stronger.

Be Healthy and Be Well.
