At CDA Acupuncture and Holistic Healing, we want you to know we care about you and want to be a resource for you during this challenging time. First of all, it is important for you to call us first if you feel you, or a family member, might be infected. We really want to limit exposing others to this virus so it is critical that you stay at home or go to a clinic/hospital which is set up to deal with exposures including testing. For those who may be dealing with the infection in their home, Dr. Toby would like you to set up a phone call so he can help advise you what your next steps should be. Please read through Dr. Toby’s blog entries on Covid-19 to learn more about the pandemic and what you can do to take care of you and your loved ones.
There are a number of things which can be done to support your immune system so that you can fight this infection. There is a lot we don’t know about this virus, but there are things we know we can do to help prevent the spread and contraction of the virus and things we understand about how the body works to fight infections and minimize the disease process. Naturopathic medicine believes in the vis medicatrix naturae – the healing power of the body. We can support the body, maximize the functionality of our immune systems and create a hostile environment for the virus to take hold. The conventional medical community does not have a treatment at this time. Naturopathically we don’t have a cure either, but there is science and research on the side of supporting the innate healing power of the body – a core principle of naturopathic medicine.
