Coping with stress.
Since stress, itself, is bad for your immune system (and most other bodily systems). In a time like this we know that stress is high but stress also causes your body to be left a weakened state. We want to provide you with some solutions to help you cope in a time like this.
Here are some suggestions from the CDC:
Take breaks from watching, reading, or listening to news stories and social media. Hearing about the pandemic repeatedly can be upsetting.
- Take care of your body. Take deep breaths, stretch, or meditate. Try to eat healthy, well-balanced meals, exercise regularly, get plenty of sleep, and avoid alcohol and drugs.
- Make time to unwind. Try to do some other activities you enjoy.
- Connect with others. Talk with people you trust about your concerns and how you are feeling.
- Call your healthcare provider if stress gets in the way of your daily activities for several days in a row.
Holistic approaches that can help.
From ancient wisdom to the latest science, holistic approaches offer alternative ways to manage stress and build your immune system. We offer instruction in meditation, yoga, nutrition, energy mastery as well as immune-boosting therapeutics:
- IV Vitamin C infusions
- Energy Healing
- Vitamin D injections
- Creating smoothies filled with nutrition and antioxidants
Symptoms of COVID-19.
If you are experiencing symptoms or know you have been exposed to the virus, please contact us by phone to discuss. For instance if you have:
- Shortness of Breath
- Recently visited a country with widespread cases of COVID-19
- Had contact with someone diagnosed with COVID-19
Ideally, we will arrange a telemedicine consultation. However, if you develop the following symptoms, please go to an emergency room or call 911 immediately:
- Difficulty breathing or shortness of breath
- Persistent pain or pressure in the chest
- New confusion or inability to arouse
- Bluish lips or face
For your nearest testing site call the Hillsborough health department at (813) 307-8000.
Practical ways to protect yourself and your family:
- Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. Use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol if soap and water are not available.
- Avoid touching your eyes, nose, or mouth with unwashed hands.
- Avoid close contact with people who are sick. Stay at home and away from others if you are feeling ill.
- Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue when you cough or sneeze, then throw the tissue in the trash and wash your hands. If no tissue is available, use the crook of your elbow. Never sneeze or cough directly into your hand.
- Clean and disinfect objects and surfaces, often.
- Eat well, drink lots of water and get plenty of rest to help strengthen your immune system.
- Practice social consciousness by distancing yourself from others, especially if you have underlying conditions that put you at a high risk of getting sick.
What does IV Infusion and Supplements do for myself and my family?
The CDC recommends supportive therapy. Anything that builds your immunity would be a way to consider supportive therapy.
