Many of you are so dedicated to your care that you have asked to keep your appointments as scheduled. I applaud your enthusiasm, you are awesome! But, we still need to be mindful of the recommendations from Health Canada. As a result, we have decided to switch over to Phone Consultations as much as possible for the time being, and will look at secure online Video platforms for delivery as this situation continues.
While the virus is the primary focus of our health concerns, keep in mind that it is still extremely important to manage blood pressure, diabetes, lung diseases, and stress levels in order to lower your risk.
Keeping your immune system strong is an important part of staying healthy. As a new virus, COVID-19 has no known treatments at this time (despite what the internet might be saying). However, we can still use our knowledge of the immune system, preventative strategies, and existing anti-viral measures to help guide us through this uncharted territory. Please let us know if you would like to discuss personalized recommendations by phone appointment.
Anyone with symptoms, or who has had contact with an infected individual should contact Public Health for direction. If you have traveled in the last 14 days, please stay home.
We are happy to arrange safe pick-up of your remedies and treatments. Please call (519) 942-9990 or email Dr. Christa for any requests. In addition, you can find most of your favourite high quality products on our Online Shop for delivery straight to your door.
Payment instructions will be given to you upon placing your order. We are committed to your safety and ours by accepting phone and electronic payments.
I caution you from ordering from some online retailers, as there have been cases of fraudulent products being sold to well-meaning customers. If your budget is a concern, you can discuss alternative measures with Dr. Christa, and also consider that the best preventative techniques are a healthy diet and hand washing.
Anxiety, Fear & Panic
It is completely understandable if you are worried right now. If your fear or anxiety starts to be your primary emotion or becomes overwhelming, we should discuss strategies for calming your nervous system. In the meantime, two of our local yoga studios, Kala Yoga and Go Yoga, have graciously started offering their classes online. This could be a great way to stay active at home, while connecting to the community and balancing your stress response.
It's also an important time to rely on trusted sources of information. We are grateful to be able to continue serving you in the best way possible and will continue to adapt as the need presents.
Yours in health,
