This is a totally new challenge for healthcare providers: out of the blue the coronavirus has appeared and changed the way most acupuncture practitioners can work for the time being. Following government guidelines and those of my professional body, the BAcC, In practice this means I can't make use of any face to face physical interactions.
But what is available is the use of Chinese Herbal Medicine. Actually chinese herbal medicine is ideally positioned to manage viral infections. This is done in 3 stages:
Stages of managing coronavirus:
1. Preventative Stage
Keep the basic function of the body at optimal level to allow the immune system to work at full function to keep pathogens at bay. Two services are available at East West Clinic for this.
> Available for people who are generally well in the online shop (to East West Clinic patients) the pre-made formula "Immune-Boost" is available.
> Full herbal consultation, done remotely via telephone/ skype with individualised formula prescription for more complex presentations including concurrent mild fatigue and mild fever go to booking page for that.
2. Treatment Stage
Use the full breadth of Chinese Herbal medicine to combat the symptoms including respiratory distress. Acupuncture could theoretically be used here, as it is in China, but here in the UK we are able to prescibe personalised herbal formulas to exactly match symptoms.
>>> This is done remotely via telephone/ skype with Remedies can be given at short notice and even delivered the same day if in the Farnham area, according to availability. Go to booking page for that.
3. Recovery Stage
>>> After the infection has subsided herbs are used to rebuild the body's function and get the person up and running again. Like the stage above a personalised formula dispensed via a telephone booking. Go to booking page for that.
