We are in the middle of an unprecedented time in humankind’s history. Not since the 1918 Spanish Influenza Pandemic over 100 years ago have we had such a potentially serious threat to our world wide health and well-being. The difference now is we are better informed with the internet and universal news coverage. Unfortunately, with this increase in information can come information overload and false news. The best advice so far is to be vigilant with personal hygiene by frequently washing your hands for at least 20 seconds, practicing social distancing and self-quarantining for those who are most at risk or who have traveled overseas recently.
In our clinic Green Door Health please be ensured we are practicing safe hygiene methods and following the advice of health officials. In addition, we have a natural olive leaf hand sanitizer on our front desk free to use for any one who walks into the clinic.
Our clinic is still open for service in order to help our clients with their health needs and for immune support and advice. For those who are self-quarantined or prefer not to come in please be aware we offer online, Skype and phone consultations. Our herbal medicines are available to buy on our website and we can set you up with online ordering for anything else you may need eg. Vitamin C, Zinc, Vitamin D etc… by just giving us a call in clinic on 02 9979 9888.
