Due to the continued updates with the COVID-19 virus, we are urging all patients to please self isolate if they are feeling unwell, so that we do not put other patients, our staff or practitioners at risk of infection.
At this time, it is very important to be boosting your immune system, so keep in mind we have supplements available which are top quality immune-boosting herbs and minerals which are able to be posted out to you, we have added free postage on products over $100. Stress also decreases your immunity, as such we are urging everyone to get some exercise, become aware and educated about the true risks of this infection and if you can get in for your adjustment to help manage stress, do so.
If you are feeling unwell or have recently travelled overseas, please let us know and we can easily change your appointment. We are implementing the advice from the Australian Government Department of Health as it's updated.
In the clinic, we have introduced additional cleaning, strict hand sanitising and alcohol based cleaning for all our reception staff and practitioners to use in between each patient visit, and ask that all patients wash hands or use hand sanitiser at the reception desk when they enter the practice. We have stepped up our usual cleaning practices by also disinfecting all surfaces and door handles constantly. Magazines and toys are being cleaned frequently but feel free to bring a book if you would like to take advantage of some quiet time to yourself if you arrive early.
As mentioned before one of the most important things we can do for ourselves and our families at this time is to strengthen our immune systems and our bodies natural defences. This virus has been a great reminder of the importance of having good health and practising what we consider common sense good health practices.
It is a great time to focus on your health and try to keep as well and healthy as you can. Bump up your intake of fresh veggies and immune-boosting foods such as GARLIC, ONION, LEEK, TURMERIC, PARSLEY, BLUEBERRIES, FRESH BEETROOT AND BONE BROTH also ensure you are also drinking plenty of water and prioritise sleep. Good quality sleep is one of our best immune boosters! Also, limit sugar and alcohol which are both known to depress the immune system.
Our main priority is the health of our patients so if there is anything we can do to help you or your family in this time please get in contact with us. Please phone us if you need advice or want to ask any questions.
