What is your COVID-19 intake process like?

- Answer a couple of questions to evaluate if you or someone in your household may have symptoms of or may have been exposed to COVID-19

What health conditions are considered ‘non-emergent’ and are generally recommended that you do not go to the ER or urgent care for?
Please do not overwhelm the emergency rooms and urgent care centers with non-emergent healthcare conditions. Chiropractors, acupuncturists, functional medicine physician, and more—look for the root-cause of disease by using physical exams, diagnostic tests, and lab work. They take a holistic approach to the body. Common health conditions physicians like ours help treat are:
- Attention deficit disorder (ADD)
- Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD)
- Autism, Asperger’s syndrome, and autism spectrum disorders
- Back pain
- Carpal Tunnel
- Celiac disease
- Chronic fatigue
- Frozen shoulder
- High blood pressure
- Hyperthyroidism and Hypothyroidism
- Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS)
- Rheumatoid arthritis
- and more!
*Note: We recognize that sometimes medication is medically necessary to assist a patient. This is why we have recently added primary care to our clinic. Our primary care physician will take a preventative and natural approach to helping you with your health. However, medication will be prescribed if necessary.

There are multiple supplements that can help boost the immune system’s function. We recommend the following items:

These items and additional supplements may be purchased at Loehr Health Center clinics.

We do not claim that any of these products (or any of our services) cure COVID-19 (novel coronavirus). Our goal is to help provide you with services (ex. chiropractic, acupuncture, and electro-lymphatic drainage) and supplements that do one or more of the following in the body:
- Decrease the stress response
- Decrease inflammation
- Increase nutrients
- Improve nervous system function (so other systems in the body perform well)
