Dear Serene Natural Health Family,

Serene Natural Health is excited to be offering a new service as of January 1, 2018. We will be offering telehealth/telemedicine as an option to have an appointment with one of our doctors over the phone when you are unable to make it to the office in person. This is a phone call between you and the physician that would be billed as an office visit through your insurance. Some plans require a co-pay for this service, but the deductible may be waived. Insurance plans vary from patient to patient even if they have the same insurance carrier, so we encourage you to call your insurance provider and inquire if you are eligible for telehealth/telemedicine.

You’re Covered:

At work - We know you’re busy and we’re ready to help you feel better at your desk or out in the field. With Telehealth, there’s no long wait in a doctor’s office or urgent care clinic.

In the comfort of your home - A great option if you get sick and you just don’t want to get out of bed.

While traveling - You don’t have to cancel your plans if you get sick on the road. Serene Natural Health’s doctors are available 5 days a week during normal business hours.

Please note that Serene Natural Health does not recommend telehealth/telemedicine in place of a scheduled office visit but offers it for circumstances that prevent you from coming into the clinic in person.

Zinc: Essential for Every Body

Zinc is second to iron as the most common mineral in the human body and it's found in every cell, making it vital to the health and wellbeing of children and adults. Zinc plays an indispensable role in hundreds of biochemical reactions including those that support the development and the health of the blood, skin, muscles, and hormones. Zinc also supports optimal function of the nervous system, immune system, and endocrine system.

Zinc is present in a great variety of foods, such as eggs, seeds, nuts, dry beans, red meat, miso, dark turkey meat, dark leafy greens, and scallops. However, because there is evidence of mineral depletion in soils around the world, your holistic health practitioner may recommend a trace mineral supplement. A zinc supplement might also be recommended for people with a medical condition that affects absorption. Medical researchers are looking at how the body utilizes zinc and whether or not taking zinc can improve treatment for Celiac Disease, diabetes, thyroid function, heart disease, and other health concerns. In other research, a connection exists between taking certain forms of zinc and a reduction in the number of colds in a year, the number of missed school days, and the amount of antibiotics required in otherwise healthy children.

A person's need for supplemental zinc varies based on age, gender, and other health factors. There are several forms of zinc, but not all are appropriate for every person. For some people, zinc supplements can cause upset stomach or interfere with the actions of other medications. Also, taking too much zinc can have a toxic effect. Consult with your natural medicine practitioner before starting a zinc supplement.
