Dear Patient of The Natural Health Center,
As your healthcare partner, we want you to know that your safety is always our top priority and we are taking the recent outbreak of the coronavirus (COVID-19) very seriously.
Knowledge Is Power – Things To Know About The Coronavirus
Per the CDC (Center for Disease Control), there is still much to learn about the virus, but Coronavirus spreads through contact with respiratory droplets caused by coughing. It is spread from person-to-person and happens most frequently among close contacts (within about 6 feet). This type of transmission occurs via respiratory droplets. Transmission of the coronavirus to persons from surfaces contaminated with the virus has not been documented.
Cleaning of visibly dirty surfaces followed by disinfection is a best practice measure for prevention of COVID-19 and other viral respiratory illnesses in households and community settings.
What We Are Doing To Keep Our Patients Safe
We take this situation very seriously and have been closely monitoring each update. For us, that means following the guidance issued by the World Health Organization and the Center for Disease Control. We are cleaning and disinfecting regularly, specifically we practice routine cleaning of frequently touched surfaces (for example: treatment tables, pens, doorknobs, light switches, desks, faucets, sinks) with cleaners and EPA-registered disinfectants that are appropriate for the surface.
Our providers will continue to sanitize their hands before and after treating each patient. The treatment tables will be sanitized after/before each patient.
We have set up antibacterial stations throughout the office. We ask that you use these as you come into the office.
Regarding our staff members, we can confirm that none of our employees have traveled outside of the country in the past several months. Out of an abundance of caution, any of our team members that feel symptoms of a cold or fever, will not be coming into the office.
Take Steps To Protect Yourself
- Don’t weaken Your Immune System
- Get enough sleep
- Drink plenty of water
- Don’t eat sugar (this will weaken your immune system)
- Don’t eat many carbohydrates (carbs turn into sugar, which weakens your immune system)
- Wash your hands frequently with soap for at least 20 seconds. Use hand sanitizer when soap is not readily available.
- Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth with unwashed hands
- Avoid close contact with people that are sick
Boost Your Immune System & Protect Yourself Against The CoronaVirus
Chiropractic Adjustments: Spinal adjustments have been shown to boost immune function because they serve to correct the spinal misalignments that cause neural dysfunction. Even one adjustment can bring about an immediate immune boost. A chiropractic adjustment isn’t the only way to increase your immune function, but it can vastly help.
Acupuncture: Acupuncture can regulate immune function and treat the underlying cause of the disease by reducing symptoms, speeding up the healing of infection and normalizing the body’s immune response. It can also cause a rise in levels of interferon, one of the immune system’s messenger hormones.
Nutritional Supplements: The Natural Health Center has collaborated with multiple teams and put together 6 key supplements specifically designed to BOOST your immune system. We suggest taking these before getting sick so that your immune system is strong enough to fight any pathogens. Ask one of our doctors if these would be right for you.
In closing, The Natural Health Center Team is here for you and your health is our upmost concern. Please do not hesitate to speak to one of us about any help you may need.
Yours In Health,
The Natural Health Center Team
