“I have seen what a laugh can do. It can transform almost unbearable tears into something bearable, even hopeful.” – Bob Hope
Celebrate National Humor Month with us this April!
Current world and local events can be scary at this time and the impact on mental health can be detrimental. Let us not have anxiety interfere with the enjoyment of life as we see it at this time. Although we would love to wave a magic wand to make the reality of the world’s current affairs disappear, we are not able to do so but instead, we would like to share with you our product of the month that may assist. The effectiveness of this product is no April Fool’s joke!

Lavela WS 1265 is an exclusive lavender (Lavandula angustifolia) essential oil, known as Silexan™. Indicated for occasional anxiety, Lavela WS 1265 has been shown to promote relaxation and calm nervousness, as demonstrated in controlled trials published in peer-reviewed medical journals.
A patient’s ability to respond to occasional anxiety has the potential to interfere with the enjoyment of life and even the ability to perform ordinary daily activities. In addition to lifestyle and behavioral modifications, supplementation can also play a role in supporting a balanced mood.

SARS CoV-2 (virus) & COVID 19 (disease) updates:
Although the State of Utah does not have a mandate for a “Shelter in Place” order but rather the directive of “Stay Safe, Stay Home” announced by Governor Gary Herbert, we need to remember that our actions can impact the community as a whole. Please treat the “Stay Safe, Stay Home” directive as if it were a “Shelter-in-Place” mandate. In order to prevent being part of the spread of SARS CoV-2 to our most vulnerable population in our community and/or overwhelming our hospitals, it is important to stay indoors as much as possible to enforces physical distancing (aka “social distancing”). This is critical when looking at data and recognizing that although the State of Utah does not have that many cases reported or for that matter deaths due to COVID-19, we may still face an ICU bed shortage. Although the missionaries were asked to isolate themselves and go into quarantine since they are returning from missions served all over the world, those they live with may find themselves in the community coming out for the essentials. We ask that all help keep the community safe by changing our behaviour as if we already have the virus and looking to prevent others from being infected. You may see data at the following LINK for Utah as well as other states or the USA as a whole regarding projections for hospital beds and ventilators needed in addition to possible shortages.
The reason we emphasize the term “physical distancing” instead of “social distancing” is for the mere fact that a physical distance is being created rather than a social one; we want you to continue to be social with friends and family via technological means of communication, however that may look for you (ie. phone call, text, email, social media, etc.). Physical isolation may be challenging for many, especially for those who already suffer from depression and/or anxiety. Please connect with others during this time so someone can be aware of your emotional and physical well being. Being safe and well are very important during such a crisis.
If you did not receive the “Immune Support Guidelines” email sent earlier this month then feel free to visit the clinic website and look at the “Blog” tab, where it was added. If you did receive that email please make note of the Blog post found HERE as it will contain any additional updates to avoid a frequency in emails. For Spanish please visit the Spanish side of the website HERE. Please feel free to share with others that may find this information useful.
Let us all not forget the importance of laughter this April, as National Humor Month, to remind you of Empowered Healing, Empowered Health, resulting in an Empowered YOU!
