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.

DID YOU KNOW - Magnesium is the fourth most abundant mineral in the body which is found in bones, teeth, and red blood cells. Magnesium is an essential element required for proper functioning of the nervous, muscular, and cardiovascular systems. A balanced diet may provide all the magnesium some people need, but those with specific illnesses or who are taking certain medications may benefit from magnesium supplements. The type of magnesium supplement is very important, as some forms of magnesium like magnesium sulfate and magnesium oxide are not well absorbed and while they may work for other reasons like as a laxative, they don’t raise magnesium levels. Magnesium glycinate is an excellent supplement. Ask one of our pharmacists to find out more information.
If your pet is having behavioural issues such as being frightened by loud noises or separation anxiety when left at home, compounded medications may be able to help. We can customize medications in various dosage forms to best suit your pet, including flavoured treats and transdermal creams. Ask any one of our compounding pharmacists for more information now!
DID YOU KNOW -- When pregnant or lactating women use topical medications, the fetus or infant may also be exposed because the drugs in topical medications can be absorbed into the maternal circulation and cross the placenta or be excreted into breast milk. Topical medications should not be applied near the nipple where the infant could ingest the drug directly, unless the safety of the medication is cleared with the obstetrician, pediatrician or pharmacist. For example, avoid high-potency steroids or topical anesthetics on nipples when breastfeeding. When topical medication is used, creams are preferred, although excess cream should be removed before nursing. Always remember to check with your healthcare prescriber if in doubt.
May 12th is International Awareness Day for Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS). It is a chance for the millions of patients worldwide who are suffering from Chronic Fatigue syndrome to be seen and heard! Over 100 million people worldwide have chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS).

Additional symptoms include sore throat, unexplained muscle pain, enlarged lymph nodes in armpits or neck, headache, and joint pains. Therapy options include Bio-identical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT) which has shown to be effective in addressing the most common CFS symptoms, improving sleep and boosting motivation, mood, stamina, and strength!

DID YOU KNOW – Along with killing cancer cells, radiation therapy may also damage cells that make up the lining of the intestines. This irritation and/or inflammation (radiation enteritis) typically begins in the 2nd or 3rd week of treatment and leads to abdominal pain and diarrhea in 75-90% of patients receiving radiation for prostate, rectal, pancreatic, colon, uterine or cervical cancer. Radiation proctitis is specific to the rectum, often causing fecal urgency with cramp-like rectal pain, and bloody stools. The first-line therapy for radiation proctitis with bleeding are sucralfate enemas, which often have a rapid and dramatic effect because it provides a protective coating to protect the injured lining of the rectum. The effects of sucralfate enemas are found to be superior to the commonly used therapies with steroids. Sucralfate enemas are not commercially available but can be compounded in a compounding pharmacy. Ask our compounding pharmacists today about other customized therapies to help relieve the side effects of cancer therapy.
Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) is a very real problem for almost 50 million people plagued with uncomfortable, often disabling symptoms like bloating, cramps, diarrhea, constipation, and pain. Causes may include food allergies, a lack of digestive enzymes, parasites or overgrowth of bacteria in the gut, yeast overgrowth, zinc or magnesium deficiency, and heavy metal toxicity. Many people with IBS have suffered for decades without relief and are told to simply add more fiber to their diet, or are prescribed sedatives, anti-spasm drugs, or antidepressants. To effectively treat IBS, the underlying causes must be addressed to restore normal digestive function and health. If you think you could potentially be suffering from IBS, do not hesitate to speak to your healthcare prescriber about your symptoms or contact our pharmacists for more information!
Vaginal discharge is the fluid made by the glands inside the vagina and cervix to carry away dead cells and bacteria. Vaginal discharge can be categorized as non-infective (due to normal physiological discharge) and infective discharge (caused by bacterial vaginosis or sexually transmitted infection). For those who suffer from recurrent yeast infections, it is not unusual for an infection to become resistant to the commonly used antifungal treatments available by prescription or over the counter. In such cases, a compounding pharmacist may be of help with certain therapies, which can both treat the infection and prevent the recurrence of candidiasis. Another frequent complaint of many women is vaginal dryness and discomfort, which is particularly common in women nearing menopausal age or in transitional periods, such as following the birth of a child. During such instances, a doctor may work with our pharmacist to recommend and prepare vaginal creams using bio-identical hormones that may clear up chronic vaginal dryness and restore elasticity.

For the occasion of World Health Day, which falls on April 7th every year, the World Health Organization gives a new theme. This year, the theme is 'Beat Diabetes', in hopes to raise awareness about diabetes being a silent killer and also type 2 diabetes appears to be one of the fastest growing chronic health conditions. About 350 million people worldwide have diabetes, a number likely to more than double in the next 20 years. Poorly controlled diabetes can lead to multiple complications i.e. those affecting the small vessels (eg. retinopathy, neuropathy, nephropathy) and those affecting the large vessels (eg. stroke). For diabetic patients, apart from maintaining a stable blood glucose level, additional therapy options such as compounded medications are available to relieve pain as well as decrease the risk of further health complications. Please contact our pharmacists for more information and join in the fight today!
