COVID-19 is clearly a very virulent and dangerous virus.
FOR THE TIME BEING I INTEND TO STAY OPEN AND KEEP TREATING INVITED and COVID-19 SCREENED CURRENT PATIENTS ONLY. ONE AT A TIME. THOROUGH DISINFECTION BETWEEN PATIENTS.
This is a quickly evolving scenario and it is possible I will temporarily close to assist further in ‘flattening the curve’ or SARS-CoV-2 transmission risk. As far as I can interpret my status according to Governor Cooper’s Executive Act #121, Piedmont Acupuncture & Oriental Medicine is an essential business.
I have for 22 years of professional practice employed universal precautions to prevent communicable infectious disease, including disinfecting surfaces and WASHING HANDS.
I am much more routinely and diligently disinfecting all clinic surfaces that you could possibly touch, including doorknobs, chairs, water dispenser, sink and toilet handles, and YOUR TREATMENT ROOM surfaces between each patient.
Linens have always been hot water washed and changed after each patient. You have always laid upon fresh clean linens.
PLEASE DO NOT COME TO CLINIC, and SELF QUARANTINE for 14 days before returning for your treatment if you develop FEVER >99.0, COUGH, SHORTNESS OF BREATH, CHILLS, SIGNIFICANT ACUTE FATIGUE, SUDDEN INCREASE IN PHLEGM, NAUSEA, or any symptoms you’re suspicious of.
For suspected or confirmed ACTIVELY INFECTED COVID-19 PATIENTS I WILL CONSULT VIA PHONE, EMAIL, or TELE-MEDICINE PLATFORM and DROP SHIP THE APPROPRIATE HERBAL FORMULA FOR YOU.
Acupuncture & Chinese herbal medicine has for centuries been on the front lines of infectious epidemics, and COVID-19 is no different.
ACUPUNCTURE can strengthen specific and non-specific immunity!
CHINESE HERBAL MEDICINE is being proven to help in the PREVENTION of viral illness. If you DO become infected, Chinese herbal medicine correctly prescribed to your presenting illness pattern may HELP. Several Chinese herbal formulas are being successfully used RIGHT NOW to both prevent and actively treat, including YU PING FANG SAN and QING FEI PAI DU TANG.
I am in process of acquiring ENOUGH specific Chinese herbal granules used in the prevention and treatment of COVID-19 to be able to offer to all interested patients.
