COVID-19 Practice Updates
Our goal is to provide the most comprehensive care for preventing chronic illness; optimizing health and helping individuals reverse disease using an individualized approach, testing and tools of functional and integrative medicine. To provide the best possible care to our patients, our office is now operating completely virtual. All visits will be completed virtually, as either a phone or Zoom visit.
As a reminder, we do not function as primary care or emergency medicine. If you are concerned you have been exposed to Coronavirus (COVID-19), please call your primary care physician’s office for triage instructions.
Additionally, we have received increasing inquiries about alternative treatments for COVID-19 and the necessity of the COVID-19 vaccine. Although I heartily endorse using natural approaches to prevent disease and improve the strength of one’s immune system, these interventions are based in scientific fact and are safe.
As a board certified and licensed physician, it is my obligation to uphold the Hippocratic oath to “do no harm”. The leading organizations of Functional and Integrative Medicine fully support vaccination as a principal line of defense against the COVID-19 vaccine, as do I. Precautionary measures are the most important aspect of prevention from infection, which include continued use of masks in public places, hand washing, and social distancing.
There are limited controlled studies on humans using alternative treatments for COVID-19, however improved immunity through better sleep, nutrition, weight management, lowered inflammation, and certain herbs and supplements may be used as adjunctive therapy to vaccination and precautionary measures.
There are two things that want to clarify to existing and potential new patients:
- I do not advocate for use or prescribe unapproved, off label medications such as Ivermectin, Plaquenil, or other potentially dangerous medications for COVID-19 treatment or prevention.
- Although it is an individual’s personal decision to get a COVID-19 vaccine, many businesses and government agencies are requiring it for employment. We cannot legally or medically excuse you from this obligation with a doctors’ note.
If you would like to find out more about how we can help you reach your health goals, please fill out the introductory questionnaire and we will get back to you as soon as possible.
NEW Virtual Program Offerings
Immunity Plus Program:
In addition to supporting a wide range of chronic illness, Dr. Moday, with her background in immunology, has developed a new program designed to assess how well your immune system is functioning. Find out if you are at greater risk for immune challenges like COVID-19 and other infections. The testing included in this program allows us to make **personalized** diet and supplement recommendations that takes the guessing game out of supporting your immune system!
Stress & Hormones Program:
The Stress & Hormones Program is for individuals who want to identify hormone imbalances, adrenal insufficiency, and symptoms of chronic stress. Stress chemicals actually harm our immune system over time. This program includes lab testing to evaluate sex and stress hormones so you can learn how to better support yourself both, now, and in the longterm.
What to expect with a virtual appointment?
If you have chosen a phone appointment, the provider will contact you at the number on file at your scheduled time. If you have opted for Zoom, you will receive a link in your portal as well a calendar invite. If you wish to use this on your phone instead of your desktop, we recommend downloading the app prior. Your appointment will last the same amount of time as if you were in the office. The provider will send you links to purchase any needed supplements and lab kits will be shipped to your home. Handouts will be uploaded to your Documents section in the portal.
