Coronavirus (Video #14)

At Cardiogenix, we have always said that in order to live a long and healthy life, not only must we sleep well, eat well and exercise, but as social beings people need to maintain a healthy social life as well. With the recent COVID-19 outbreak, measures such as self-isolation have inhibited many of our ability to fulfill our social needs and can cause us to feel more stressed than usual. Today, the Doctor’s delve into your questions regarding anxiety, depression, post-traumatic stress and other mood disorders that are heightened due to the pandemic and their effect on our body and immune system. 
If you are feeling any of these emotions during your self-isolation journey, rest assured that you are not the only one. It is normal to not feel okay during a pandemic and it is important for your health to talk about it with your loved ones or a health professional if needed. 
Thank you all for your very incredible input! We encourage you to send us more questions at, but most importantly, if you believe that you are showing symptoms or may have come in contact with someone with COVID-19, please call the info-coronavirus line at 1-877-644-4545.
As always, stay safe, happy and healthy everyone! 
Your Cardiogenix Family
