We are in unprecedented times in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic. While the world around us and our day-to-day is changing drastically, our mission at Loehr Health Center remains the same: to empower and lead our patients, employees, and community to be healthier through individualized services, wellness education, and ongoing support.
Just like our holistic approach to your health, we invite patients and their healthcare teams to get to the root of the problem. With so much information around us, we truly believe that the solution to the chaos lies within us all. We also believe that your life should(and can) still have balance, even when in quarantine. Included below are just a handful of ways to find balance while adjusting to your new normal.
Establish a routine
So much of our lives are spent in routine. One way to maintain that balance, is to stick to a schedule as much as possible. We recommend waking up at the same time each day, eating breakfast(if that’s what you normally do), taking a lunch break, etc. As much similarity that you can have to your schedule prior to the coronavirus, the better.
Eat fresh produce
When possible, we recommend buying fresh organic fruits and vegetables. If not, frozen produce is a good option, too. These forms pack the most nutrients compared to canned produce.
We also recommend eating produce that is nutrient dense(dark leafy greens, berries, etc.)
When not available, use a greens powder. These make for great supplements and can be added to smoothies. You can purchase greens powder at our clinic, located on Republic Road in the Farmers Park shopping center.
Studies have also shown that dark chocolate with a high cocoa content is one of the most nutritious foods you can eat. Just sayin’.
This is also a great time to shop local and support local farmers and grocery stores(Mama Jeans Natural Market, Farm 2 Counter, Akin’s Natural Foods, and MJ’s Market & Deli, to name a few).
Utilize grocery pick-up and delivery
While we know that buying groceries is a necessity, limiting your time in large groups of people is important to reducing the spread of the virus. Grocery pick-up and delivery is a great compromise. The Farmers Market of the Ozarks even has a drive though farmers market for the time being.
Implement an at-home workout routine
It is important to maintain your physical health during this time. Find different ways to move every day. Some options include going for a walk/run, riding a bike, or doing a bodyweight workout. Getting outside and exercising will help not just your physical health, but also your mental health.
There are also several free at-home workout apps and fitness videos on YouTube you can take advantage of while practicing social distancing.
Our massage therapist, Dale Nimmo, recommends Tai Chi. Tai Chi helps decrease stress, ultimately boosting the function of the immune system.
Speaking of immune systems, take your vitamins!
Since we know that those with weakened immune systems are at greater risk of contracting COVID-19(novel coronavirus), vitamins are a great way to improve your immune health.
Our clinic has several products and services with a holistic approach to boosting immunity:
Here are a few supplements we recommend:
Elderberry or Elderberry with CBD
