Dear blessed Flower Mountain & Natural Pathways community,
As of this week we are doing online and phone sessions only until further notice.
Please reach out to us if you need assistance. We can direct ship herbs and supplements directly to your door
Dear, Patients and Friends of Flower Mountain.
We at Flower Mountain have been watching the recent developments unfold with CORVID-19. Many have been wondering if we will be open. Currently our plan is to stay open on a limited basis through this week and then we will reassess for next week based on any developments.
We all know that acupuncture is a wonderful treatment system that can be especially helpful in times of great stress and anxiety. We want to continue to offer acupuncture treatments as long as it is reasonable to do so. In China herbs and acupuncture were essential in improving the outcomes of this virus and reducing the duration. Chinese Medicine practitioners are on the front lines with Allopathic staff. In the United States acupuncture and herbal medicine are on the fringe of the mainstream medical system. We are not currently equipped to operate like Chinese clinics/hospitals. Our primary function here is natural primary care.
If you are interested in learning about how the Chinese have used herbs and acupuncture to fight this virus checkout our Facebook page where we have posted several articles.
In order to keep our community safe. We are asking at this time if you are feeling sick (Cold/Flu/Etc.) it is best to stay home and follow appropriate social distancing. Limiting contact with others out side of your home is a key element in preventing the spread of contagious conditions. If you have recently travelled from to Asia, Europe, or, Europe in the last two weeks it is especially warranted to take the per caution of self quarantine (14-21 days is optimum). Please follow proper hand washing and/or Alcohol based hand sanitization procedures. 20 seconds of scrubbing with soap and water, or an alcohol based hand rub of 70% or higher are recommended regularly.
This is a tricky time of the year to be having this outbreak. We are at the very beginning of spring allergy season. Allergy symptoms can mimic the symptoms of both flus and colds. It is very important for us not to panic at symptoms that can be normal this time of year. There are some key symptoms that can be troubling and would raise concern. High fever and Difficulty breathing are the two most critical symptoms to look out for. If you are experiencing these symptoms seek allopathic medical care. They are offering drive through testing at several sites in Asheville. Feel free to reach out to us and we will point you in the right direction. Please check the image below for a list of symptoms of the actual Corona virus.
We are currently using extra precautions with our clinic environment. We are using an atomizer with VitalOxide a safe biodegradable disinfectant that kills 99.999% of bacteria and viruses. vitaloxide.com Chris’ family is the main distributor of this product in South America. It is used in many hospitals across the world as a Hospital Grade Disinfectant. All rooms are sprayed with disinfectant before and after every Patient.
We would like to continue your care even if you are unable to make it into the clinic in person. To serve that need we are offering online sessions. Given the massive economic and social impact, we are offering these sessions reduced rate.
We wish you all good health.
