FYI
 
Two new books in my library that have been very informative to ordinary health issues. The first book, "The Trans Fat Remedy" by Deborah Mitchell, is informative on how to know what foods have hidden trans fats. The FDA will have all food manufacturers list the amount of trans fat per serving on their packages by January 1, 2006. If this is an issue with your health and diet in 2004, I highly recommend this book.

The other book is "Dietary Fiber" by Shirley S. Lorenzani, Ph.D.. It breaks down the health aspects of fiber beside the obvious one. Again, good reading.

Compounding Updates!
 
A lot of medications that are commercially manufactured are just not the right dosage for your particular needs. Occasionally the instructions are take 1/2 tablet twice a day. Or when you need to take your medication you need it now! We can make your medication you need 1/2 tablet strengths (no more pieces to quesstamate) or for immediate absorption put into a troche, rub on cream, or effervescent tablet, which dissolves in the mouth.

If this would help you or a loved one who doesn't swallow as well as they once did, give Gary a call. With your doctor's instructions to your particular medicine need, we can probably help.
