Vitamin D - More evidence in demonstrating why I have said for years that Vitamin D is a vital and inexpensive way to improve your overall health.

Hormones and COVID-19. Why Optimal Hormone Levels Help You Battle COVID-19 and so much more. Video by Dr. Larry Komer, MD. Do you have optimal hormone levels? If you have had a concussion, are under persistent stress, or are over 40 - the answer is your hormones are stressed. Some have had their hormones wiped out following an injury. Changes due to age (stages of menopause in women and andropause in men) reduce your hormones. That makes you more susceptible to heart disease, stroke, depression, brain dementias, bacteria, and viruses like COVID-19. Dr. Larry Komer discusses how you can improve your hormones.

The Corona-19 virus pandemic is serious. We all need to make choices to keep ourselves, our loved ones, and our community safe. Follow the advice of officials and medical experts. Do not give in to rumours on the internet. Good decisions now will help reduce the impact of this virus on us all later.

Just as important are the emotional challenges. It is natural to be afraid and anxious. What we can do is to summon our courage. Canadian society has come through difficult times before. We will come through this too. Choose to have courage. It may be something you have to do over and over but you can be strong through this.

When we have faced uncertainties and risks before, one very Canadian response is compassion. May I EN-Courage you to have compassion for those who are struggling. Check in by phone or email with others who may be vulnerable. Take time to smile when you see someone in a store or while filling up your gas tank. It's a good time to be kind.

Your acts of courage and compassion will help everyone get through this together - even as we are maintaining our social distance!

Finally, let me give a special commendation to all those who are showing their courage and compassion through continuing their essential services. This is a time to honour our healthcare workers, our first-responders, those who keep our stores stocked and open, and the many unseen who keep our infrastructure working.

Update About Our Office During This Outbreak of Corona Virus : March 15, 2020

On the advice of the Ministry of Health we are changing our office protocols to ensure minimization of risk to our patients and our staff.

Starting the week of March 16, 2020 we will try to change as many patients visits as we can to virtual electronic visits. Initially most will be by phone. There are some patients who have already made arrangements to come to the office and, if they do, we will see them, once again minimizing risks by using frequent hand washing and minimized personal contact.

For the majority of scheduled patients we will set up visits through OnCall Health. One of the problems with phone visits is that each person requires individualized attention and some visits unexpectedly may take longer than others. We will make every effort to keep on schedule but at times we may be delayed.

COVID-19 is placing stress on Canada's public health system. Our clinic is starting to offer virtual care to make sure that we can continue to care for our patients safely and effectively. This means that we will be using video and audio technologies for some patient visits rather than asking all patients to come into our office. Some of these technologies are provided by the Province. Others have been provided by vendors like Google, or Apple to help make discussions with your care provider as easy as possible during these difficult times. Some health concerns can be addressed with virtual care alone, but in some cases your doctor may ask you to visit a hospital or other health care facility if necessary, for a physical examination.

We do our best to make sure that any information you give to us during virtual care visits is private and secure, but no video or audio tools are ever completely secure. There is an increased security risk that your health information may be intercepted or disclosed to third parties when using video or audio communications tools. To help us keep your information safe and secure, you can:

Understand that emails, calls, or texts you receive are not secure in the same way as a private appointment in an exam room.

Use a private computer/device (i.e., not an employer's or third party's computer/device), secure accounts, and a secure internet connection. For example, using a personal and encrypted email account is more secure than an unencrypted email account, and your access to the Internet on your home network will generally be more secure than an open guest Wi-Fi connection.
You should also understand that electronic communication is not a substitute for in-person communication or clinical examinations, where appropriate, or for attending the Emergency Department when needed (including for any urgent care that may be required).

If you are concerned about using video or audio tools for virtual care, you can ask our office to arrange for you to visit a different healthcare provider or other health care center where you can be seen in person. However, please note that visiting a health care provider in person comes with a higher risk of coming into contact with COVID-19 and the possibility of spreading the virus.

By providing your information, you agree to let us collect, use, or disclose your personal health information through video or audio communications (while following applicable privacy laws) in order to provide you with care. In particular, the following means of electronic communication may be used (identify all that apply): email, videoconferencing (including Skype, Facetime, etc.), text messaging (including instant messaging), website/portal, OnCall.
