These last few weeks feel like none other that I have ever experienced in my 38 years as a healthcare provider. We continue to operate with staff and remain open to see patients under normal business hours. We are also monitoring the latest news about COVID-19 and continue to perform our normal procedures to protect our patients that include:
- Patients are going right into treatment rooms
- Adjusting tables & Decompression tables are being sanitized before and after every patient
- Disinfectant available for patient's hands
- Disinfectant for all equipment used in the office
- Chairs and doorknobs are being disinfected after each patient
Our time caring for our patients has a rhythm. This year, the rhythmic cycle of caring for you has been interrupted by the pandemic spread of COVID-19. Over the coming weeks, we will be eagerly awaiting the return of our patients who will still need help getting back to what matters most in their lives. Spinal adjustments have been shown to boost immune function because they serve to correct the spinal misalignment's that cause neural dysfunction. Neural dysfunction stresses a body out, which may lead to a weakened immune system and lowered response to a foreign body, such as the Corona Virus . Organs that have a strong relationship with the immune system, such as the lymph nodes and the spleen, communicate with your brain and nerves, and if your nervous system isn’t functioning at an optimal level, a communication breakdown may occur. Getting regular chiropractic adjustments is a great place to start so you can get any spinal misalignment you may have corrected. Even one adjustment can bring about an immediate immune boost.
In the meantime, we will continue to figure out how to support our patients beyond chiropractic care. Over the next several days, our team will be working together to figure that out.
IgG/IgM Antibody Test
The Functional Medicine Approach to COVID-19
We are happy to try and be part of the solution to the current Pandemic with the release of our Serum antibody C-19 test and the partnership with 6000 phlebotomists to test patients at home.
The Test: The kit detects 2019-nCoV IgM and IgG antibodies by immuno- capture method. The nitrocellulose membrane is coated by mouse-anti human monoclonal IgM antibodies, mouse-anti human monoclonal IgG antibodies, and goat-anti-mouse IgG antibodies. The recombinant 2019-nCoV antigen and mouse IgG antibodies are labeled with colloidal gold as a tracer. The antibodies will bind to colloidal gold-coated 2019- nCoV antigens to form compounds, which are further captured by pre-coated mouse-anti human IgM antibodies to form new compounds, and generate real time results.
Time Frame: The kits that we will be sending out can be shipped to doctors and patients with a turn around time of 24-48 hours.
Drop Ship Kits and at Home Phlebotomy Service: We have partnered with 6000 Phlebotomist to enable patients to be tested at home.
Research studies on several immune-boosting botanical and nutraceutical agents are promising, as they can improve the body’s ability to fight off and recover from the illness. Beneficial agents along with dosing recommendations are in this presentation from your Functional Medicine practitioner. For more information on these recommendations, please feel free to contact me directly.
We utilize a HIPAA secured tele-health portal for our functional medicine clients so we can assist you in achieving your health & wellness goals from the comfort of your own home. If you are interested in scheduling a consultation, please call our office at 631-271-0770.
