Many people suffer with pain needlessly, mistakenly believing its part of aging or nothing can be done to help them. We offer a new solution to address the predicament of pain sufferers who do not respond to commercially available preparations – gels, creams and rubs suitable for topical application, avoiding the oral route, thus minimizing potential side effects such as stomach irritation and liver damage.
Addressing autism involves more than prescription drugs alone can achieve. When no commercially available agent is appropriate for a pediatric patient, a compounded formulation often assures successful treatment. Our medications and supplements are free of dye, artificial flavouring, preservatives, gluten and casein.

BORIC ACID is most commonly known as a household pesticide. But do you know, boric acid has various medicinal uses as well:-
• Antifungal Treatments - Boric acid can be used in the treatment of various yeast and fungal infections including vaginal yeast infections.
• Antiseptic Properties - Due to its mild antiseptic properties, it is an effective medicine for treating superficial epidermal wounds, minor cuts or burns on the skin. It is also an effective tool for dressings or salves.
• Eye Treatments - Diluted aqueous boric acid solution is used as eyewash for treating eye irritation, conjunctivitis and discharges from the eyes.
• Ear Treatments - Swimmers use boric acid solution as an ear drop to flush out fungi and bacteria that might have entered the ears during swimming. This minimises the chances of ear inflammation characterised by fever, pain and dizziness.
• Foot Treatments - Powdered boric acid can be used as a talcum powder to reduce excessive sweating. Due to its antifungal activity, it can also be used to treat athlete’s foot by putting boric powder in socks or shoes.
At Accent Wellness, we can customise boric acid in various strengths and forms including pessaries, talcum powder and more. Call us now to find out how we can help you!
Fall is the season that brings abundance of root vegetables, squashes, apples, pears and some more exotic fruits, such as quince, pomegranate, guava and persimmon. These combine well in nourishing hearty dishes that are as flavorful as they are healthy. However, the holiday season is often a time where people often let go of the healthy habits they work hard on all year. Thanksgiving is obviously very centered around food and though all of us at Accent Wellness Compounding Pharmacy would dive into pretty much any festivity (as much as anyone else), we want to share some tips with you on how to have a healthier, happier Thanksgiving this year...
1. TAKE CONTROL of what you cook/eat/serve
2. GET MOVING and burn some of those calories off
3. ENJOY IN MODERATION and substitute where you can for healthier alternatives
4. BE A SOCIAL BUTTERFLY by spendimg more time with friends & family rather than the food, that way you can spend more time chatting & chuckling and not focusing on eating too much
5. HAVE SOME FREEDOM by allowing some "cheats" and perhaps sharing it with someone so you can enjoy Grandma's homemade pie without going overboard.
Happy thanksgiving to all our family & friends celebrating - We are so thankful for you, not just on Thanksgiving but every day of the year!! <3 - Accent Wellness Team
Diagnosed with BPH? What’s next?
Treatment for enlarged prostate will depend on the severity of symptoms. If you have mild symptoms, immediate medical treatment is not usually required but you should have regular prostate check-ups. Meanwhile, there are a few things one may do for symptomatic relief:
• Reducing the amount of caffeine, fizzy drinks and alcohol-containing drinks as these drinks irritate the bladder and make urinary symptoms worse;
• Limiting intake of artificial sweeteners;
• Drinking less fluid, especially right before bedtime;
• Try urinating twice whereby after completing urination for the first time, wait for a moment, relax, and then urinate again.
Ask our pharmacists for more information about any of these lifestyle changes today!
I have benign prostatic hyperplasia, is it cancer? – The answer is no. Benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) refers to a non-cancerous enlargement of the prostate. The word benign means “non-cancerous” while hyperplasia means “enlargement”. Local studies have shown that about 50% Malaysian men above 50 years old are affected by symptomatic BPH. The prostate is a small gland located in the pelvis, between the penis and bladder. If the prostate becomes enlarged, it can place pressure on the bladder and urethra which causes various symptoms such as:
• Frequent urination (especially at night)
• Difficulty initiating urination and weak urine stream
• Urine continues to dribble or feeling that bladder is not empty after completing urination
Usually, BPH can be managed by just watching and follow up assessment if the symptoms are not causing a significant bother to the patient. This is called “watchful waiting”. Medicines are also available while surgery is often the last resort where part of or the entire prostate may be removed.
It is always advisable to consult a doctor when one experiences the above-mentioned symptom(s). Rectal examination, blood and urine tests can be carried out to confirm the diagnosis.
DID YOU KNOW -- Women can lose up to 20% of their bone density in the 5 to 7 years after the menopause. There is a direct relationship between the lack of estrogen after menopause and the development of osteoporosis. Early menopause when the woman has low estrogen level and no or infrequent menstrual periods can cause loss of bone mass. After menopause, bone resorption (breakdown) overtakes the building of new bone and once this loss of bone reaches a certain point, a person has osteoporosis.
While you can't halt bone loss entirely after the menopause, there is plenty you can do to maintain your bone strength as you get older. Staying active and eating a healthy, balanced diet will help keep your bones healthy after menopause. Moreover, studies how bio-identical estrogen replacement therapy can slow bone loss and improves the body's absorption and retention of calcium. This can help to maintain bone density and reduce the risk of osteoporosis. Nutrients such as calcium and vitamin D are particularly important for building strong bones as well. It’s never too late to prevent osteoporosis and maintain a healthy bone regimen. Ask our pharmacists for more information today!

WAIST SIZE = % HEART RISK!
The circumference of your waist is important because it's a good indicator of how much abdominal, or visceral, fat you have — the fat you carry around your waist, including your belly. "When you have a lot of visceral fat, it releases inflammatory chemicals which have profound effects on other parts of the body. That includes an increased risk of developing chronic diseases like heart disease and type 2 diabetes," says public health expert Professor Tim Gill from the University of Sydney. According to the World Health Organisation (WHO), regardless of your height or build, for most adults a waist measurement of greater than 94 cm for men and 80 cm for women is an indicator of the level of internal fat deposits which coat the heart, kidneys, liver, digestive organs and pancreas. Therefore, the larger the waist measurement, the higher risk of heart disease and stroke. If your weight measurement exceeds the WHO recommendation, it’s time to take a closer look at your lifestyle. Research shows that reaching and keeping to a healthy waistline cuts your risk of cardiovascular diseases. A healthy diet and a good exercise routine can go a long way towards a slimmer waistline and a heart healthier you!
WORLD PHARMACIST DAY: Marked worldwide on Monday 25 September 2017, the theme of this year’s day is “From research to healthcare: Your pharmacist is at your service". Over the years, the role of pharmacists has evolved from that of a provider of medicines to that of a provider of care.
At Accent Wellness, we too recognise, pay tribute and honour the varied contributions of pharmacists, from research to providing direct patient healthcare, as part of the day. As there is a growing demand for medication that is not commercially available, compounding pharmacists are increasingly taking on new challenges and establishing new roles as we ensure patients (and doctors) benefit from evidence-based clinical expertise. We have always believed all pharmacists deserve strong recognition for their vital healthcare role, and especially for our pharmacists at Accent Wellness Compounding Pharmacy for their determination in assuring the quality of innovative unique solutions that meet the demand of patient and prescriber in maximising therapeutic outcomes and improving the quality of life. <3
