Supplement of the Month: Pic-Mins
Pic-Mins contains well-absorbed forms of zinc, selenium chromium, manganese, molybdenum, boron and vanadium. These trace minerals function as cofactors in numerous enzymatic reactions in the body.
Research on trace minerals have demonstrated their importance in human health. They are essential for proper hormone and neurotransmitter functions. A deficiency in one or more of these trace minerals can have an adverse impact on cardiovascular health, bone health, fertility, cognitive health and immunity. Even a mild deficiency of a trace mineral can result in growth and development issues. Although many trace minerals are found in fruits and vegetables, mineral depletion of the soil has rendered much of todays produce deficient in these essential nutrients. Thorne’s Pic-Mins include 7 essential trace minerals.

Updates Regarding Coronavirus (COVID-19)
To all of our valued patients of Atlas Chiropractic Care and our local communities:
We would like to assure you that we are taking this pandemic seriously and are taking necessary precautions to keep our facility, patients and staff safe and clean in regards to the Coronavirus (COVID-19). We have been working to protect you and your family when it comes to our office. We are consistently wiping down all rooms as well as commonly used surfaces, computers, phones, etc. and are constantly washing/sanitizing our own hands. The staff are wearing masks to reduce transmission. Our receptionist is call-screening patients 1-2 days before their scheduled appointments. There are Informational COVID-19 signs posted around the office and we have a COVID-19 symptom questionnaire for every person that enters the office for safety purposes. After each adjustment, patients are offered an alcohol pad or can use sanitizer to wipe areas of the neck and head after their adjustment.
***In an effort to help reduce the transmission of COVID-19, our office will be open for any acute or emergency chiropractic patients. Any patients not experiencing acute or severe symptoms will be rescheduled. We will still be open Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays but the office hours will vary by day. Please call and schedule your appointment. If we are not available, please leave a voicemail and we will return your call within the next business day.
In the meantime, we also ask that
you also help us in this endeavor to suppress the spread of
● If you have symptoms of a fever, cough, shortness of breath, body aches, or if you have had close contact to someone who has the COVID-19, we respectfully ask that you not come into our office for your appointment, but instead call your Primary Care Physician.
● We ask that you please wash/sanitize your hands before your scheduled appointment.
● In addition, if you have recently travelled to an area that has had an ongoing spread of COVID-19 in the past month, we ask that you postpone your visit to our office and call your Primary Care Physician for more information on precautions and next steps.
Below are a few important
considerations we can all take to decrease the spread of this, and
● Wash your hands with soap and warm water for at least 20 seconds after blowing your nose, coughing or sneezing before eating any food and after using the restroom.
● Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, throw your tissue in the trash and wash your hands for at least 20 seconds. If you do not have a tissue, cough or sneeze into your upper sleeve but NOT your hands.
● Avoid exposure to the virus. Avoid large crowds – when in public, practice “social distancing” (i.e. 6 feet apart).
● Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth with unwashed hands.
● If you or a household member is showing symptoms of upper respiratory illness, stay home. Suppressing respiratory symptoms like coughs and runny nose with medicines does not mitigate the contagiousness of the condition.
● Suspend hand shaking, and physical contact greeting during the pandemic.
Our greatest concern is for the health and safety of our patients, staff and communities. If you find that you need to reschedule your appointment, please call 585-442-1500. We will gladly reschedule your appointment so that you have the appropriate time to recover.
Thank you for your understanding!
Dr. Natalie A. Dabrowny
