We see COVID-19 patients on Zoom or by phone.

In an effort to reduce spread of Covid-19/coronavirus disease, Life Medical is asking all patients to make zoom or phone appointments.  Please do not come to the clinic in person if you are ill with what could be covid: cough, flu-like symptoms, loss of taste and/or smell, etc. This way you will protect yourself and others from cross-infection.  One of our doctors will see you virtually and recommend appropriate management.  In most cases physical exam is not necessary.  In cases where an exam or a blood test is deemed necessary, you will be asked to go to an urgent care center.

The best way to protect yourself from covid is vaccination.  While there are small risks to vaccines, they are largely safe, and the risk of covid disease definitely outweighs the risk of vaccination.

Masking is important in certain situations.  Some masks, like N-95 respirators, can protect the wearer against infection lingering in the air.  Other masks are more for protecting others against the wearer’s possible infection.  Mass masking appears to work against spread of infection in groups.

In many cases Dr. Mirman may suggest homeopathic remedies to manage your condition if you contract covid, in addition to other indicated modalities. Homeopathy is very effective in infectious disease, including epidemic disease.  Historically it has saved many lives in epidemics like cholera, diphtheria, typhus, influenza and others. The homeopathic remedy can be prescribed during the virtual visit, provided at no charge in our pickup area outside the clinic (or purchased at Whole Foods), and the case will continue being managed closely by phone.

Our website offers the historical data mentioned above along with research and detailed instructions on the use of homeopathic medications in respiratory and other infections.  Homeopaths around the world are reporting good results in covid cases, even some of the advanced ones.  Minnesota homeopaths, including Dr. Mirman, are also seeing cases of covid and are reporting good results.

These remedies can also often help with side effects of vaccination if any.

Some homeopaths are against all vaccination.  Dr. Mirman believes such views are misguided.  Vaccination is perfectly compatible with homeopathic philosophy and practice.
