We are now wearing masks for safety

Dear Patients:

I have decided that we will start wearing masks to keep our patients and ourselves safe. Many of you have decided to wait to come in until after the quarantine. While I respect your decision, I want to emphasize that getting an adjustment is the most powerful thing that you can do to keep your immune system strong. In addition to wearing masks, we are sanitizing all surfaces, door handles, arm chair rests, etc. and I am sanitizing my hands between each adjustment. We are also only allowing two people in the waiting room at a time. Please reconsider. I am staying open because I want to be there for you patients to keep you healthy.

Blessings,

Dr. Khalsa

P. S. By the way, we are both smiling behind the masks!

 

Corona Virus

Dear Patients:

I wanted to send out some information regarding the Corona Virus.  I recommend that you follow the basic guidelines as spelled out by the CDC.  Here is a link with their basic recommendations:  CDC recommendations

I don’t want to minimize the seriousness of this virus, but I also want to put it into perspective.  There is so much fear and anxiety everywhere I look and NOTHING weakens  your immune system like fear and anxiety.

There are certain groups that are at risk but the risk for healthy people is quite low.  I have copied some tables below of the percentages of fatalities in different age groups and comparison of people with with and without preexisting conditions.

If you want to do something preventative, I recommend that you take 2000 mgs of Vitamin C (1000 for children) and 5000 to 10,000 units of Vit D (2000 to 5000 for children) a day as a preventative measure.  I also recommend taking some herbs such as echinacea, golden seal, ashwaganda, or garlic.  If you start to feel any symptoms, immeidate start taking higher doses of Vitamin C (5,000 to 10,000) a day and more of the herbs.  High doses of Vitamin C works best in the early stages of an infection.

The other thing that will boost your immune system more than anything is to come in for an adjustment.  If the nerves that support your immune system are stressed and blocked, then it is much harder for your body to fight off an infection.  Getting an adjustment will make it easier for your body to fight off the infection or eliminate the infection if you are already sick.

If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to call.

Humbly,

Dr. Khalsa

Age of Coronavirus Deaths

COVID-19 Fatality Rate by AGE:

*Death Rate = (number of deaths / number of cases) = probability of dying if infected by the virus (%). This probability differs depending on the age group. The percentages shown below do not have to add up to 100%, as they do NOT represent share of deaths by age group. Rather, it represents, for a person in a given age group, the risk of dying if infected with COVID-19.

COVID-19 Fatality Rate by COMORBIDITY:

*Death Rate = (number of deaths / number of cases) = probability of dying if infected by the virus (%). This probability differs depending on pre-existing condition. The percentage shown below does NOT represent in any way the share of deaths by pre-existing condition. Rather, it represents, for a patient with a given pre-existing condition, the risk of dying if infected by COVID-19.
