I hope this message finds you safe and well in this time of change and uncertainty. As your doctor, I want to assure you that Yajaira and I will be with you, safeguarding your health and assisting you in navigating this crisis. In an effort to do our part in slowing the spread of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) we will be offering new appointment formats; which are online appointments using Zoom, Skype and Facetime.
The use of this new system will ensure that we are all doing our part to practice social distancing in an effort to slow the spread of this virus. In addition, it will help our office avoid a backlog when things return to normal.
My health recommendations:
Stay home if possible. If you go out, practice social distancing, maintaining a distance of 6 feet between yourself and others. Work from home when possible. Regularly wash your hands and disinfect household and workplace surfaces. Avoid touching your face after touching any objects in public places. Wear gloves and masks if available.
This is a time of profound uncertainty which is causing anxiety and stress. Support your body by caring for your mental and emotional health. We suggest meditation, indoor exercise or other calming activities to soothe your mind and body. Go to chopracentermeditation.com for a free 21 day meditation experience. beachbody.com has many on demand workouts. For excellent beginners yoga classes go to YouTube: Yoga with Adriene. We encourage communicating with others virtually (Facetime, What’s App, Skype, Facebook Messenger etc.) to decrease feelings of isolation. Eat well and practice good sleep hygiene to boost your immune system. Try to adhere to some type of schedule while at home.
Please email us at [email protected] and we will gladly direct your next steps for care. We can get through this together!
