As we face new healthcare challenges with Coronavirus (COVID-19), we understand that your daily healthcare needs will still require our support. To allow for continuity of care, Evergreen Natural Medicine is pleased to offer telemedicine audio and video visits with your physician. Thanks to recent changes in healthcare guidelines, these visits are now being paid for by your insurance company.
At our office, we will also continue to see patients in-person for services that require physical contact such as IV therapy, Holistic Pelvic Care, Craniosacral Therapy, etc. In order to support social distancing, we are staggering patient visits and are limiting the number of staff and patients in the building at the same time. Hours of operation may be variable. Please call ahead for in-person needs. With this said, telemedicine is a particularly good option for general safety.
We strongly encourage everyone to follow the CDC guidelines for safe practices to reduce the spread of disease. These important practices include frequent hand washing, covering coughs and sneezes, social distancing, and disinfecting surfaces regularly.
In addition, here are a few reminders about simple things you can do to improve your immune health all year long:
- Follow a healthy diet. AVOID sugar and refined foods which can lower immune function.
- Optimize your Vitamin D levels, which is a critical nutrient for immune function. (We encourage testing before starting supplements).
- Don’t skimp on sleep. Sleep is the ultimate immune repair and recovery system.
- Eat foods that are high in essential vitamins and minerals for the immune system.
If you have any particular health concerns or would like to discuss your immune or respiratory health, please call to schedule an appointment at 503-615-4055.
Wishing You and Your Loved Ones Health and Happiness!
