We are still open for business and are considered essential. I also have a few tips and suggestions on how to keep your immune system healthy, so you can be as healthy as possible right now!
Hey everybody, it's Dr. Bob Salamon here at Lowcountry Chiropractic. By now all of you know that we are all going through some very difficult and stressful times. Emotionally and economically difficult times. So, I wanted to get a little preachy on you in this blog. Not too preachy, I just want to hopefully help you guys get through these trials that we are going through in our lives right now. We are all in this together, and that is one of the good things. No one's immune to this. We are all dealing with this. There is a scripture in the bible that I like, and it is very appropriate right now. It says, "In all things, God works for the good of those who love Him and are called according to his purpose." What does that mean? Does that mean that every day we wake up it's going to be a good day? No. Does it mean that nothing bad is going to happen to us? No. It doesn't mean that at all. But, what I believe it does mean is that in the many different trials of our lives, that there is something good that God will use that trial for in our lives and in our communities. He will turn the bad into good. Unfortunately, sometimes we can't see that because we're not God, we are just human. But ultimately, at the end of it, we will see that there will be good things that come out of it.
A couple of good things that are coming out of it right now are families growing closer. Parents are spending more time at home with their kids. There is more time to be a family unit. That's a good thing! Maybe that's what God is trying to do. He's wanting us to really get back into our community and get back into our families. The other good thing that is coming out of this is the support of the community. We just gave a bunch of food out at my church. People drove up and were given supplies. We are doing that every Tuesday morning from 9 AM to 11 AM at The Dream Center at Seacoast in North Charleston. If you need anything, please come. We have opportunities and should look to find opportunities to help or to serve somebody or do something good right now. All we are hearing right now on the media and in print is a lot of negative. I just challenge you all to do a few things.
The second thing I want to talk about is how do you defend yourself in these times? How do you ensure that you're as healthy as you can be? If you're as healthy as you can be, it doesn't mean you're not going to get infected. But, the odds are going to be a lot less. Even if you do get it, and you're in great health, you're going to get over it a lot quicker. We've talked about this before, and I will continue reiterating these things. But, I think it is always important enough to say it again that your health is your responsibility and no one else's. It is in your hands. So, you've got to do certain things to improve your immune function, especially now.
Write something about yourself. No need to be fancy, just an overview.
