Changes, Changes

For those who haven't been in our store recently, we've arranged the front a new way. We are carrying a small selection of natural and diabetic food items. We have new lines of vitamins added to our other selections. We now carry magnetic and copper bracelets. We now carry Cherry Concentrate as requested by our gout patients. If there is a special request or need you have, come by and see if we can help. We'd love to have your business.

Hormones, etc.

We have saliva testing available for men and women for hormone levels. We have estrogen, progesterone, testosterone, thyroid, DHEA, melatonin, and cortisol testing among others. We also have cholesterol testing kits and 5-Drug screen test kits.

Concerning women's hormones, be aware that a lot of medications and foods such as grapefruit will make birth control pills a lot less effective. Antibiotics are one such medication. Please contact your pharmacist or doctor if this is a concern of yours.


1.) Get your prescription bottle from your old pharmacy
2.) Give us a call at (972) 264-0268
3.) Tell either Gary or one of our technicians:
          Your name
          Your phone number
          Your old pharmacy name and their phone number
          The prescription number or numbers
          Your doctor's name (and their phone number is great, too)
4.) Any insurance information
5.) We'll handle the rest

You can also just bring in your prescription bottle in to us.
"About Those New Year's Resolutions"

The number one piece of advice I can give is ... if any of the below conditions are yours, please work closely with your doctor to keep these in check.

These are NOT treatments - they are just my opinions and observations.

When I have difficulty sleeping, I cut out the caffeine (tea, soda) at 4 PM, next day at 3PM, etc until sleep comes easier.

When I'm trying to lose weight, one thing I do is not eat "whites" after 3PM. Whites consist of sugar, pasta, potatoes, bread, rice, starches; also, nothing that contains them. In my opinion, it also helps my blood sugar levels.

When acid reflux is a problem, in my opinion, I find eating just salad without meat or cheese at night for supper seems to help. I only use oil and vinegar dressing.
