Chronic Sleep Issues? Maybe you need to change your daily routine.

Helping stressed-out, busy professionals learn to sleep better.

Our lives have become more stressed recently. Many people feel they are anxious about the future, family, employment.

This can affect our sleep. Good sleep is very important to good health. When we sleep well, we recharge our adrenals, detox, and repair damage from injuries and daily wear and tear.

Knowing what condition your adrenals are in is very helpful, and the proper support nutritionally can help them calm down if to revved up or help them regenerate if they are burnt out.

But wait, there is more!

If our daily schedule, lifestyle is contributing to the high stress/anxiety, we need to learn tools to help us deal with these stressors or ways to remove them. Supplementation is very important, but addressing the why the adrenals/sleep was pushed out of balance is key to healing.

Handwashing & other Coronavirus Health Tips

“Happy Birthday to You” should be the No. 1 song in the nation. The tune was once dubbed the most recognized song in the English language by Guinness World Records, and of course it’s often sung heartily at parties celebrating the births of countless people from coast to coast.

Now, people are hearing it more and more amid the coronavirus pandemic. That’s because health experts recommend it as great way to gauge how long to wash your hands, which is one of the most basic and essential ways to protect against infection.

Scrubbing should last at least 20 seconds, or about how long it takes to sing or hum “Happy Birthday” twice in a row, to rid your hands of any germs and pathogens.

It’s a fun, familiar song, but in all seriousness it’s worth remembering as a simple tool to ensure good hygiene in a time when clean hands can help ease an epidemic.

Coronavirus Stool Testing -Now Available!

Monitor, Manage, and Prevent Transmission of COVID-19 with the New SARS-CoV-2 qPCR Stool Test from Diagnostic Solutions Laboratory

Key Points:
    • Cutting-edge viral RNA qPCR stool test measures levels of SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19. covid pic 2
    • Screen, monitor, or prevent transmission in patients at risk for COVID-19.SARS-CoV-2 in stool may be found in up to 53.4% of COVID-19 patients.The virus may be detected in stool for a period of days to weeks after initial infection.
    • Intestinal viral infection may play an important role in COVID-19 disease progression and may increase risk for more severe disease.
    • Detection of SARS-CoV-2 in stool could be used to prevent fecal-oral transmission.

Overview

COVID-19 is an infectious disease the World Health Organization has identified as a global pandemic. SARS-CoV-2 is a novel, single strand RNA virus that causes COVID-19.

According to the Centers for Disease Control, COVID-19 is mainly spread person to person through respiratory droplets produced when an infected person coughs or sneezes. Other means of virus transmission are possible as well. Asymptomatic patients or patients who have not yet presented with symptoms may transmit the virus to others, and the virus may also be spread by contacting a contaminated surface.

Below you’ll find facts about COVID-19 and information about testing options Diagnostic Solutions lab offer to help detect the presence of SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes the disease.

Symptomology Related to COVID-19

Some people with COVID-19 remain asymptomatic carriers of the disease, while others exhibit varying degrees of the following common symptoms:

  • Fever
  • Cough
  • Shortness of breath
  • Gastrointestinal Complaints
    • Diarrhea
    • Abdominal pain
    • Vomiting
  • Anorexia (loss of appetite)

COVID-19 Diagnostic Test (oral and NP Swab)

Diagnostic Solutions  COVID-19 Assay is listed on the FDA website as a validated test under Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) guidelines. This test is currently available only to hospitals and public health institutionsand uses RT-PCR technology to identify SARS-CoV-2 using a nasopharyngeal (NP) or oral swab.

SARS-CoV-2 Stool Analysis – Screening and Surveillance Test is available to all

The SARS-CoV-2 stool test also uses RT-PCR technology to detect the presence of SARS-CoV-2 in stool and is now available at Johnson Compounding and Wellness by special order.

Research from around the world indicates that as many as 50 percent of patients who are positive for SARS-CoV-2 experience gastrointestinal complaints.1

Furthermore, evidence suggests SARS-CoV-2 is detectable in stool and its presence in stool may last for up to five weeks after clearance from the respiratory tract. A recent article published in Lancet states:

“Our data suggest the possibility of extended duration of viral shedding in faeces, for nearly 5 weeks after the patients’ respiratory samples tested negative for SARS-CoV-2 RNA. Although knowledge about the viability of SARS-CoV-2 is limited, the virus could remain viable in the environment for days, which could lead to faecal–oral transmission, as seen with severe acute respiratory virus CoV and Middle East respiratory syndrome CoV. Therefore, routine stool sample testing with real-time RT-PCR is highly recommended after the clearance of viral RNA in a patient’s respiratory samples. Strict precautions to prevent transmission should be taken for patients who are in hospital or self-quarantined if their faecal samples test positive.”2

The SARS-COV-2 Stool Test is Helpful for the Following Individuals:

  • Patients exhibiting signs and symptoms of SARS-CoV-2, including:
    • Fever
    • Cough
    • Shortness of breath
    • Gastrointestinal Complaints
  • Asymptomatic Patients Concerned about Having or Transmitting the Virus
  • Surveillance of patients who previously tested positive for COVID-19 by respiratory sample

The SARS-CoV-2 Stool Analysis is not diagnostic of COVID-19. COVID-19 disease can only be diagnosed with positive SARS-CoV-2 results on a respiratory sample.
