I am here to support you during this time with knowledge, virtual visits, individualized immune boosting virtual visits, and ongoing social media support. It's important that we stay connected and support each other.
Top Things I am Doing to Stay Healthy
Staying informed but not watching the news to reduce anxiety.
Eating low sugar because sugar suppresses the immune system.
Getting fresh air on nature walks to boost immune cells and reduce stress.
Doing moderate exercise 20-40 minutes to reduce stress and maintain a strong immune system.
Staying hydrated with lots of water.
Taking supplements that support the immune system. Here is a link to my latest blog post on key vitamins and foods to boost your immune system too: https://www.drfelty.com/post/immune-boosting-vitamins.
Guided meditation that helps me focus on my breathing to reduce any feelings of worry and panic. I use the Calm app.
Washing hands and following World Health Organization guidelines here: https://www.who.int/.
Limiting my time in public for the next two weeks and offering virtual and phone visits.
Virtual Health Support and Education
I am currently helping clients virtually to restore health and immunity. If you are seeking guidance regarding COVID19 or other viral infections, I provide support to optimize virus fighting ability. I am working with local offices that are offering proper COVID19 testing and treatment. I’m extending my friends and family discount to all frontline workers - grocery store clerks, restaurant workers, delivery drivers, healthcare workers, farmers, etc. If you know anyone on the frontlines, please let them know about this, they need support more than ever. Contact me for natural medicine support and/or at-home collection testing. Most of these at-home collection tests are now available for $75 with insurance.
At-home-collection kits are now available for the following:
Small Intestinal Bacterial Overgrowth (SIBO) Evaluation
Comprehensive Digestion Analysis
Food Intolerance Testing
Food Sensitivity Testing
Candida Overgrowth Testing
Cortisol and Adrenal Health Evaluation
Environmental Toxin Analysis
SARS-CoV-2 Stool Testing

Final Word - Stay Positive
Hang in there folks. Feel and honor your feelings. I know it's been an emotional ride for everyone. Remember, this is temporary, and to focus on what is positive. You are alive, you are reading this. Your immune system can not function when you are in a state of fear. People are recovering from this all over the world. We all have the power to heal ourselves. Look at this COVID19 survivor who is over 100 years old:https://www.facebook.com/drfelty/posts/2978306318858780?notif_id=1586058499605676¬if_t=page_post_reaction.

I leave you for now with a poem called Pandemic by Lynn Ungar from 3/11/20.
Cease from travel.
Cease from buying and selling.
Give up, just for now, on trying to make the world different than it is.
Touch only those to whom you commit your life.
And when your body has become still,
reach out with your heart.
Know that we are connected in ways that are terrifying and beautiful.
Know that our lives are in one another’s hands.
Do not reach out your hands.
Reach out your heart.
Reach out your words.
Reach out all the tendrils of compassion that move, invisibly, where we cannot touch.
Promise this world your love - for better or for worse, in sickness and in health,
so long as we all shall live.
