In Response to the COVID 19

Help Us All Be Safe
Please wear a mask, and use the hand sanitizer provided before entering and after leaving the clinic waiting area, the washroom, and individual clinic rooms.
Maintain physical distancing as much as possible by waiting outdoors until the previous patient has left when there is favorable weather, or waiting in your car, or adjusting your distancing in the waiting area to ensure a 2m distance.

Adapting Our Clinic to Support Physical Distancing
The biggest challenge in our clinic is that the waiting area is narrow and it is difficult to maintain physical distancing. To reduce this exposure, David and Laurie will start adapting to this by not offering appointments at the same time unless we are able to stagger the appointments or it is an urgent case. This will reduce in person contact as much as possible.

Thank you for your support and understanding. If your situation is urgent please phone 354-3954 to get an emergency appointment.

David and Laurie Knox

 

General Suggestions:

The best prevention is limiting social contact as much as possible and when planning to go out in public wash your hands before and after, meanwhile avoid touching your face as this is how the virus is transmitted to you. Keep a 2m distance where it is possible. Important: See online videos on how to wash hands.

It is best to stay positive, have fun and go outside in nature every day for walks and exercise, drink water, eat healthy whole foods, prepare to plant a garden and stock the pantry.

Have your favorite onset of cold strategy ready. (i.e. Oil of oregano, colloidal silver, Vit C and zinc, Thieves oil, fresh ginger tea with honey, Antiviral tincture, etc.) Most important is to rest after the onset of a cold or flu.

For regular colds we have some Chinese herbal formulas in stock: If the onset cold progresses to a head cold - Chuan Xiong Cha Tiao Wan to relieve headache, runny nose, slight fever, tickly throat, sneezing. If Cold progresses to cough with profuse clear phlegm take Xiao Qing Long Wan. If phlegm colors turns to yellow and is sticky take herbs to clear heat from lungs like Te Xiao Qing Tan Capsules or Qing Fei Hua Tan tincture. Personalized herbal formula will be needed with confirmed COVID 19.
