    IV nutrient therapy picks up where a normal diet leaves off

    Ever wonder why we can’t just get all our nutrients from the foods we eat?

    Unfortunately, the typical American diet is known for its excess sugars, saturated fat and sodium, while having a deficiency in the recommended fruits, vegetables, dairy and healthy oils (1). It’s referred to by dieticians and nutritionists as the Standard American Diet (this is often abbreviated as SAD, a fitting acronym).

    With our busy lifestyles, it is all too easy to reach for processed and fast food to fuel our bodies, which may leave us depleted of essential nutrients. But even if we have a perfect diet, that still doesn’t mean that our bodies can absorb all the necessary nutrients from our food due to poor digestion issues.  

    When we eat food, our bodies break it down into nutrients like vitamins, minerals, carbohydrates, proteins, and fats. These nutrients are then absorbed from our gut into the bloodstream, where they are circulated throughout our bodies. The prevalence of digestive issues

    5 Weekly Habits That Can Help You Lose Weight

    If you're tired of seeing your weight fluctuate, you may need to add some healthy habits to your weekly schedule.

    Start Small

    Consider these five small improvements that you can make this week that can add up to big results towards your goals for managing or losing weight.

    1. Stock your kitchen. You can make room for the good things by getting rid of junk food. Keep healthy snacks on hand, along with staples for light meals.
    2. Plan your meals. Write out a menu for your daily meals and snacks. You'll be able to tell at a glance if you're getting all your required nutrients, and you'll probably eat less!
    3. Cook more. Restaurant meals and frozen food products tend to have more calories, salt, and sugar. Preparing your own food allows you to control the ingredients and calories to satisfy your health and nutrition goals.

    An Uncommon Solution to a Common Problem, Obesity

    One of the toughest health challenges we face in the US today is the ever-increasing rate of obesity. Obesity is a difficult and complex subject to talk about.

    Overweightness affects your appearance, your health status and it can play unfair psychological games with you. Self-criticism, negative emotions and a dreadful feeling of being judged by others often surround a person who struggles with being overweight. That is exactly the reason why there are a variety of “solutions” to weight loss. Most of what is available in the market does not deliver what it promises, a quick and easy way to lose weight.

    Approaches to Weight Loss

    As a compounding pharmacist, I am often asked about different options to help individuals lose weight. Some approaches include balancing your thyroid hormones, addressing female and male sex hormones and treating adrenal fatigue syndrome. We also compound low dose appetite suppressants (by prescription) for patients who have side
