***Per the Hays County Ordinance Guidelines we are able to stay open
and treat essential patients that would otherwise be going to other
doctors because of their pain or issue. This is very unlike our normal
vision to help people increase quality of life and stay healthy. Right
now it is specifically to take the burden off these medical facilities and
hospitals to help fight the coronavirus pandemic.***
At Family First Chiropractic, it is always our top priority to provide all our patients with the best experience in our office while protecting the health and safety of our patients and employees. Like each of you, we understand that we share a responsibility to protect our families and community, which has caused us to take a number of actions in response to the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) threat.
To start, we already had robust quality assurance and safety standards in place, which we continue to reinforce. We are also closely monitoring and following guidance and advice regarding this illness from the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Thus, we have taken the following preventative steps:
- Reinforcing vigorous cleaning and sanitizing of surfaces across the office including, but not limited to our adjusting tables, door/handles and bathroom surfaces.
- Reinforcing regular hand washing and sanitizing
- Reinforcing our strict operating procedures including our long-standing policy of not letting employees work while sick.
As presented in The Biology of Belief, stress is responsible for up to 90% of illness, including heart disease, cancer and diabetes. When an individual is in stress, the release of stress hormones (e.g., cortisol) shuts down the immune system to conserve the body’s energy for running away from the perceived stressor, that proverbial “saber-toothed tiger.” Stress hormones are so effective at compromising the immune system, that physicians therapeutically provide recipients of organ transplants with stress hormones to prevent their immune system from rejecting the foreign implant.
Here are some other things you can do to lower stress on your body and mind:
1- Get yourself and loved ones checked by your Chiropractor for Subluxations.
2- Eat as primitively as possible to ensure you are getting the full nutrients.
3- Stay hydrated with water.
4- Get between 7 and 8 hours of sound sleep.
5- Have a low stress and very positive attitude towards life.
6- Maintain a great spiritual relationship.
7- Maintain great friendships and family relations.
8- Give more of yourself and serve.
9- Allow prosperity as a natural part of your existence.
10- Exercise daily.
11- Make a difference every day.
If you are someone with a compromised immune system, it is supportive to surround yourself with loving family and friends, nature, and positive thoughts as well as any other nutrition and vitamins that you may already be taking for your health and wellbeing. Following your intuition about what is best for you is key!
The point here is that no matter who you are and what your state of health, you will benefit from steering clear of the fear and supporting yourself in whatever way feels best to you.
