Book To Read
 
Hormones - male and female - are currently in the news today. Recently we went to Houston for 3-day training. One of our speakers was Suzanne Somers about her new book concerning Bio-Identical hormones. She has been talking about it on The View and other shows recently. Full of studies and interviews with many hormone specialists. The title is Ageless.

Vitamins
 
A question I get asked often is: Do I take vitamins? The answer is yes, I take a handful morning and night. This is frequently followed with: If I could only afford one - which would it be? I have several favorites that I would hate to give up so I will answer in the order I would choose 1-5, although I take a lot more than 5.

#1 - A Good Combo of Antioxidants. With pollution and all the free radicals, I feel it pays for itself daily by keeping illness at bay.

#2 - Lutein Plus - a combo of Lutein-Zeathanthin-Bilberry for the eyes. Our family has a history of eye problems and I want to fight that as much as possible.

#3 - Super Arth Support - A combination of glucosamine 750mg. and chondrotin 600mg. which I take for arthritis-type symptoms on my knees.

#4 - C.F.S. Support Formula - great multi-vitamin-mineral-herb which helps my energy levels in my opinion.

#5 - Ultra-Lipoic Forte - alpha-lopoic acid which I take for anti-oxidant properties and I feel it helps with blood sugar problems.

Others I feel strongly about are COQ10, Grape Seed Extract, Calcium/Magnesium, Beta Sitosterol, and Silymarin/Milk Thistle. This is not all we take but it gives you an idea of what and why.

Compounding Update:
 
As stated earlier, we went to PCCA for updates on compound training as well as updates on pharmacy in general. Recent things we have compounded for are: Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement Therapy, Fungal Infections, Mouth Conditions, Arthritis, Sports Injuries, Sore Throats, Hemorrhoids, and Nausea/Vomiting. We have neat ways to deliver medication to the body such as -Troches, Popsicles, Lollipops, Transdermal Gel (goes through skin), Lip Balm, Inhalation, Suppositories, and Rapid Dissolve Tablets (fizzes in mouth). We also can flavor medicines.
