Quick Tip For Prescriptions

Whenever a doctor writes you or a loved one a prescription, whether from the doctor's office or a hospital, make sure you know exactly what the prescription is (medicine, dosage, strength, etc.).  Once the pharmacy or the hospital gives you the medication, verify that the medicine is exactly what the doctor prescribed.  So many times mistakes are made with the dosage being off, the strength of the medicine being changed, or even a different type of medication given.  Many medicines could have uncomfortable side effects or cause long term damage, if they are not taken for their intended use. 

We are in charge of our bodies and health, and they are one of our most precious possessions.  Guard your treasure.  A small measure of caution can prevent a potentially huge problem.

Stay healthy & well,

  1. Ayurveda is has been practiced safely and effectively in India for the past 4,000 years. It must work otherwise Ayurveda would not have survived this long. It is holistic science that emphasizes prevention. It is also a lifestyle science as it incorporates in a daily lifestyle plan herbs, diet, exercise, and more.

    Here is a website I have found information that is easy to understand.

    Take their Dosha test, it is fun. Then once you know your Dosha you design a plan that includes herbs, diet, etc. It has helped me.

    One product I take everyday is Nature’s Formulary Chyawanprash. It is tasty and really helps my energy level and immune system
