S – Social distancing

 

  • “Social distancing” simply refers to avoiding close contact with other individuals in order to avoid catching the virus yourself and to avoid passing it on.
  • This is perhaps the most important step to control this Novel Coronavirus outbreak.
  • BRC is using elbow bumps (or simply waving our hand) as our new handshake.
  • We are limiting our in-office BRC activities such as Brain Restoration Academy Support Group (BRASG) which will be accessible via our BRC Facebook live.

    TTelemedicine

     

    • Access to care is a priority.
    • Telemedicine has been part of our practice for several years.
    • We will continue to offer telehealth consultations and make this service even more available now for those that need it, such as patients that are sick, immunocompromised or live our out-of-state.

    OOptimum Nutrition

     

    • A wholesome nutrition is most important to optimize our health.
    • Eat plenty of fruits rich in antioxidants such as plums and berries.
    • Vegetables (organic): Garlic, Broccoli, Brussel sprouts, Spinach, Kale
    • Avoid refined sugar and junk food.

    P Proper Handwashing

     

    • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds especially after you have been in a public place, or after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing.
    • If soap and water are not readily available, use a hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol. Cover all surfaces of your hands and rub them together until they feel dry.(If Hand sanitizer is not available please contact us for recommendations).
    • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.
    • Adhere to 5 simple and effective steps (Wet, Lather, Scrub, Rinse, Dry).

    V Vigilance

     

    • Everyone should exercise vigilance when attending any public setting.
    • Vigilance is particularly important for those over age 60 and those with weakened immune systems or chronic medical conditions.
    • Put distance, 6 feet, between you and other people to prevent viral exposure. 

    I – Information

     

    R – Rest

     

    • “Rest” is the antidote to “Stress.” 
    • Sleep is the best form of rest.
    • Sleep before midnight.
    • Use your bedroom only for sleep.
    • See our “Sleep protocol” and “Box breathing” handouts for more detail.

    U – Unity

     

    • Unity we stand, divided we fall.
    •  A house divided cannot stand.
    • We all need to unit and work together as we fight our common enemy: COVID-19
