Lake Norman Integrative Wellness
Talks About The Coronavirus
At Lake Norman Integrative Wellness, we treat patients with chronic autoimmune and metabolic health problems. Because of many of our patients' compromised immune systems, doctors in Cornelius have been fielding many questions about the Coronavirus.
I have seen strains of the Coronavirus show up in the past as a viral infection similar to getting the flu, however the COVID-19 strain does seem to be stronger and does possibly have a longer incubation period, allowing more people to be infected.
In our clinic we are taking every precaution to ensure patients who come in contact with Coronavirus don't spread it to other patients or our staff. We sanitize every therapy and treatment between each patient and offer extra protection for our staff and patients to minimize the spread of any disease.
Furthermore, there are many things that you can do to help improve your immune system and help to prevent infection from these viruses. In fact these simple steps can protect you, your loved ones and friends and can even help to improve your overall health!
Simple Steps To Help Prevent the Coronavirus in Cornelius
Most importantly, you can add in immune support such as Vitamin D3, N-Acetyl Cysteine and Glutathione. Contact our office for how to get dosing and brands for these (3) products.
Additionally, many patients would benefit from liposomal vitamin C in higher doses. I have seen news reports of intravenous vitamin C being used in China and elsewhere, and liposomal vitamin C is just as effective in most cases as IV vitamin C.
Adding in a good spore-based probiotic can help to improve your immune systems natural defenses, including increasing your Natural Killer cells (NK Cells) which are your immune system's soldiers. Remember, the healthier your body is, the easier it can help defend you from the sickness that comes your way!
Last but not least one of the largest recommendations I can give you is to clean up your diet. If you are a patient of ours, go back on your Phase 1 Autoimmune diet recommendations you received when you started care. If you are not a current patient, consider starting a paleo or AIP diet at this time. Make sure you eat a diversity in foods, especially a wide range of vegetables.
I hope these tips will help you feel more comfortable about improving your chances against this virus and reduce your fears associated with infection.
Yours in continued health,
