Yes, it is important to cough/sneeze into a tissue and discard, or failing that, into your elbow, then washing your hands etc.
Yes, it is recommended that you maintain social distancing of one and a half metres where at all possible...
Yes, if you are displaying any symptoms of fever, coughing, sore throat, fatigue and/or trouble breathing, AND you have been overseas recently, OR you have been in contact with someone who has been diagnosed with coronavirus (or suspected of having it), then it is important that you inform your GP or get yourself to a hospital for testing, and self-quarantine until such time that you have been directed what to do by the medical experts.
But in addition to this, it is IMPERATIVE that you remember and instill into those around you that YOU ARE SO MUCH STRONGER THAN YOU HAVE BEEN LED TO BELIEVE.
If you have been following the news, reading the newspapers, listening to the commentary on radio, watching social media (God Forbid!!), then it would be easy for you to become immersed into the fear and panic that is driving the mass hysteria we are seeing globally.
However, what most of these 'news' sources fail to mention is that your body is built with all the parts it needs to navigate through the vast majority of challenges you will encounter during your life.
If it were just the case that germs make you sick, then the human species, in fact all life, probably would have been killed off a long time ago.
It may be true that 'germs' -viruses, bacteria and other pathogens- play a part in sickness and disease, but mostly, rather than being the cause of you getting sick, the reality is they are more opportunistic vectors in susceptible hosts.
What this means is that when your body is functioning correctly, and you are living a lifestyle supportive of
maintaining optimal health (through nutrition, hydration, adequate rest, reducing stress levels and getting enough fresh air and sunlight), your body is more than capable of staying well (or heal if you get sick).
Your job is to "live the lifestyle", as outlined above.
As your Chiropractor, our job is to keep the neurological connection between your brain and body as clear as
possible so that your body can function properly.
This enables you to manage the challenges that you will inevitably face in your life and be as strong and healthy as you can be.
It is precisely for this reason that we advise you to maintain regular chiropractic adjustments ... AND this is critical for every member of your family- spouse, children, parents - everyone.
Chiropractic is not about curing anything- back pain, headaches, stomach ulcers, bedwetting, cancer, high blood pressure, coronavirus - it is about keeping your body working the best it can, as often as possible, so that you can respond to challenges, threats and stresses in the most efficient way possible, thus giving you the best chance of living your optimal life.
