Adaptability may be your most essential skill in the covid-19 world

Use this time to establish new healthy habits! Adaptability leads to better health and happiness. 💪🤗

"There’s no question that we are living through a period of acute discomfort. “We are being attacked by stress,” says Reynolds, “to the point that our brains are not functioning at full capacity.”

🐠🐠🐠🐠🐠 (Just keep swimming!)

To keep moving forward, she says, it’s essential that we do all those good-for-us things we say we’re going to do, such as going for walks, or taking breaks to meditate — or just breathe."

How does Lyme Disease Affect Vision?
In the early stages, visual symptoms can include: blur, visual fatigue, double vision, headaches associated with visual activities, losing place when reading, seeing words appear to double or become double when reading, and more.

In later stages of the disease, inflammation of the eye may develop. Ocular symptoms can include sensitivity to light and floaters (spots in front of the eyes)

Research also shows that when the visual process is compromised by tick-borne disease the person will develop compensatory habits in order to attempt to function with their compromised vision.

"With the onset of the coronavirus pandemic our lives and communities have gone through a rapid upheaval of daily routines and stress levels. In this time of uncertainty, fear, loneliness and confusion, we feel grateful to be able to continue to provide care for our patients and community. I opened the doors of Firefly Acupuncture and Wellness in 2007 and we will remain open - at the clinic and now through Telehealth distance consultations.

We are committed to our patients care and as an essential medical practice, we have modified our clinic hours and processes and increased our sanitizing practices to stay safe and well so we may continue to offer premium holistic healthcare and help our community stay healthy during these uncertain times.

It’s been a bit of a rapid paradigm shift and something we have never witnessed in the 13 years we’ve been serving the Loudoun community! But in times of great change and uncertainty blooms creativity and new ways of taking action. We are happy to be able to respond to the changing health needs of our community by adding Telehealth consultations to our health services.

Chinese medicine is an important tool in fostering health and wellness and we are committed to supporting our community in this way. In our clinic our patients and their friends and families become our family and we want to be able to give back and offer our help anyway we can!" Rachel Lohr, owner of Firefly Acupuncture

COVID-19: Exercise may protect against deadly complication

Regular exercise may reduce the risk of acute respiratory distress syndrome, a major cause of death in patients with the COVID-19 virus, a top exercise researcher reports. He is urging people to exercise based on his findings, which also suggest a potential treatment approach.
