We Are Open During COVID-19

To our Dearest Patients,

We hope that you and your loved ones are staying healthy, safe, and calm during these unique times and uncharted waters.  In times of adversity we often see the beautiful resilient sides of our human nature.  We are very grateful to live among such a supportive tribe.

As you all know there is a lot going on these past few weeks.  We wanted to let you all know we will remain open until the authorities advise otherwise.  We are following the WHO and CDC guidelines in order to keep the space clean, safe, and comfortable.  We ask at this time that if you have symptoms of an acute illness that you contact us by phone or email so that together we can come up with a plan of action in order to minimize potential exposure.

Self-care is of the utmost importance right now.  The stress of this situation, the hype, and chaos that is going on is creating an urgent need to optimize your own health.  Acupuncture, herbs, and nutrient supplementation are very effective in times such as these.  These modalities have been proven throughout history to improve immune function and mitigate stressors.  There are really no studies directly on COVID-19 and alternative medicine at this point but there are hundreds of high quality, double blind, peer reviewed studies on the effects of acupuncture, herbs, and nutrient supplementation for their anti-viral and immune-modulating benefits.

To make things more efficient if you would like to use supplements to improve your immune system here are some places that we purchase our own supplements from.  They only sell to professionals with a license but we are able to sign patients up so they can do their own ordering.  If that is of interest to you let us know and we can start the process.  Here are the companies we recommend and the products that help the immune system:

  • Wellevate– carries many brands of professional brands of supplements
