I want to give you an update about the services we are offering for COVID-19. We are updating these frequently as new information comes out.
We have two options to help support you as you work to minimize your risk from COVID-19. One is a risk assessment lab package, and the other is an immune support supplement package.
The risk assessment lab package includes an assessment of your risk for diabetes, your mucosal immune function, inflammation, and vitamin D. We can also add on SARS-CoV-2 antibody testing if you’d like to know if you were exposed. These labs are all a standard part of our initial labwork, so if you are one of our patients, it’s likely we’ve already addressed these risks. However, if you would like to repeat your labs or have other questions, please give us a call. For new patients, we are offering a package that includes these labs and a 45-minute follow-up telemedicine visit with a physician after your labs are returned. Please call us if you’d like to schedule!
For supplement support, we have modified our package to correspond with the most recent functional medicine guidelines. These new guidelines highlight the need for a phased approach to the use of nutraceuticals. There are several phases of the illness—prevention, during which you are not symptomatic, early infection, inflammation, and recovery. We’ve created a package that includes supplements to take during each of these phases. You start with a baseline dose and adjust the amounts you are taking if you become ill. This is something you can start taking now for prevention, or have on hand in the event you are exposed or become ill. If you’re interested, please let us know, and your physician will check your chart to ensure this pack is right for you.
The importance of health and wellness has been raised to everyone’s awareness during this pandemic, and we look forward to helping build your resilience.
