I’m the first to admit I have not handled my frustrations with the current state of the world properly. I’ve been in denial, mad, disappointed, anxious, you name it and haven’t used all the proper stress reduction mechanisms I know work for me. Fortunately, I have an amazing wife who puts things in perspective for me and tells me what I NEED to hear. With that in mind, I’ve been working hard to focus on what’s under my control and take each day one step at a time.
There is hope out there, if you look for it! Positive news doesn’t always make headlines but doctors as close as Detroit are using intravenous Vit C and other vitamins (85 & counting with ZERO deaths) and prescription drugs combined with zinc to treat sick patients. Hospitals in NYC and China are also implementing similar therapies with initial success. Natural/holistic therapies are nothing new, they’ve been treating viruses with a high success rate for over 100 years. But, in a crisis, they are often the last thing we look to.
There is a light at the end of the tunnel and we will come out of this soon. But, no matter what we do, we are all likely to be exposed (if we haven’t been already) to the virus. “Instead of waiting for a silver bullet to kill the virus, we should be focusing on the host” (which is us) Dr. Brownstein. We all need to be taking care of ourselves through healthy exercise, fresh air, mental well-being and nutrition (low sugar, high in Vitamins A, C, D, Zinc, Quercetin, and probiotics through food first, supplement any gaps in the diet). And, chiropractic can help whole body function and stimulate parts of your nervous system to enhance immune health.
As we slowly start coming out of restrictions, we want to be the light for you. We’re constantly looking for new ways to help our patients and their families. A new normal will be created whether we like it or not. But, what’s under our own personal control is much larger than we think. We need to work hard to ensure our daily actions and activities are conducive to healing and personal growth. We’ll be with you every step of the way.
Yours in Health,
Dr. Levi Pulver
