Currently, life feels very surreal amidst a constantly changing reality. Here at Hemochromatosis Help, Kristina and I feel very fortunate to be able to share what we've learned about being healthy with hemochromatosis and to hear your stories about how you have managed your iron overload.
Response to our March 15th newsletter regarding coronavirus and hemochromatosis has been tremendous. So many of you clicked through to read the article that the page on our website temporarily crashed! If you experienced any difficulties in reading the article - we apologize! In case you missed it, you can read the article here: COVID-19 and Hemochromatosis.
Now on to a few important updates:
Hemochromatosis Help Office Updates: We're Still Open!
Even as the news updates multiple times daily, we want to emphasize that we are continuing business as usual. We are operating and shipping our supplements daily. We have a small, family-oriented office and we are continuing to take extreme care with keeping our office clean and healthy. We have also pledged to maintain our payroll with our wonderful staff as well as to keep our safety and personal health top priority. All of our patient visits are now being conducted over the phone or video chat, as we strongly support public health measures to encourage social distancing. As a result, our office remains a very healthy environment.
Hemochromatosis Help Supplements and Books
Our office is well stocked with all of our supplements that contain the nutrients we've specifically selected to help support your health with hemochromatosis. We also recently received a large supply of both of our books and have plenty in stock to share with the world.
Our supplement manufacturer has committed to staying open and operating as normal as well, and they have assured us that they too are taking the most stringent standards for cleanliness and are following the guidelines of the World Health Organization as well as the CDC. We count ourselves very lucky to be able to work with professional-level supplement manufacturers, who produce the highest quality nutrients available.
Additionally, readers have asked us about shipping and safety. We use the US Postal Service for both domestic and international shipping, and everything is running smoothly. In the USPS update, they state, "The CDC, the World Health Organization, and the Surgeon General have indicated that there is currently no evidence that COVID-19 is being spread through the mail."
Yours in health,
Drs. Eric and Kristina Lewis, ND
