Amidst the uncertainty and chaos surrounding Covid-19, many of us are feeling increased bouts of anxiety and general stress. And while we’ve talked about the physical way stress presents itself in the body, we haven’t discussed the concept of coping with the anxiety itself. Since many of us now have more time to sit and ruminate in our negative thoughts, we thought now might be a good time to talk about the ways we can stay present and keep ourselves less stressed during this time.
At Zock Family Chiropractic, our first priority has always been and will always be the health and safety of our patients. As per state orders, Dr. Zock will discontinue all elective procedures but will remain available for acute/emergency treatments.
At this time, Zock Family Chiropractic will not be offering telehealth services, however, may be reached by email for questions and concerns. We ask that patients only utilize this option if they are experiencing severe pain or immobility. Please email our office with the subject line “Emergency” and we will discuss the safest option of care.
We want to thank all of our valued patients for their support and love. Know that we are making this decision as a means to help the collective and do our part in getting through this together.
We at Zock Family Chiropractic always want to do what’s right in regard to our patient’s health and well-being. And we want to assure you that your safety and the safety of all our practice members and staff remain our number one priority. We know there is a lot of fear and worry amidst the spread of the COVID-19 virus. We are keeping up with the latest news and information from a variety of sources to make sure we are doing all we can to protect your health.
Cleaning is crucial when it comes to protecting our health. We’re exposed to toxins, bacteria, and other harmful invaders in our homes, schools, and workplaces. However, household and cleaning products often include harmfully harsh chemicals. The good news is that you can limit your exposure to these harsh chemicals. Not to mention that a movement of “green” and “natural” cleaning products is occurring now!
Toxic is a word that continues to pop up in our culture. Toxic chemicals, toxic waste. Even toxic relationships. We are becoming exposed to more and more toxins in our everyday life. Once meant to be helpful and not intentionally dangerous, we are now learning of the alarming effects these chemicals cause. We are continually exposed to chemicals in our food, the air we breathe, and a plethora of common items we all use every single day. To combat these toxins, another word has become popular as of late – detoxification. Ranging from detox teas to charcoal towels, companies rely on this trigger word as a means of advertising to a scared consumer market. But did you know that our bodies naturally detoxify our bodies? Today, we’re going to jump into the science and begin destigmatizing detox.
