September is Arthritis Month

Arthritis includes over 100 diseases that cause inflammation in joints or other areas of the body. These diseases are grouped into two different categories: osteoarthritis (most common, causes a breakdown in cartilage) and inflammatory arthritis (autoimmune disorder). Arthritis can involve almost any part of the body, though it most often affects hips, knees, the spine, and fingers. It’s a chronic condition, affecting people on a constant or recurring basis over months, years, or even a lifetime. Symptoms can range from mild to severe, and can lead to disability over time. Talk to your pharmacist about how they can help!

New Product Review: Entropy-Wave

Introducing the world’s first Anti-oxidizing Energy Machine from Singapore, the Entropy-Wave. Chronic diseases like heart disease, stroke, cancer, and diabetes contribute to 71% of global deaths, often linked to our daily diet. This innovative home appliance uses patented Ultra-Low-Frequency (ULF) electromagnetic waves to energize water molecules, creating water clusters with free electrons. When consumed, these free electrons power anti-oxidizing functions and supercharge metabolism. The excess electrons act as antioxidants, promoting better cholesterol levels, fat burn, and liver protection from alcohol and fructose metabolism. Enjoy better-tasting, healthier beverages while boosting immunity and organ functions with pure, powerful energy.

Improving Musculo-Skeletal and Joint Pain with Prolozone and Hc-Prp

Prolozone is an effective treatment in pain management and tissue regeneration. It is a combination of prolotherapy, neurotherapy, and ozone therapy. It gives you pain relief while healing of injured joints, ligaments, and muscles. The treatment solution consists of small amounts of vitamins, painkillers, dextrose, anti-inflammatory substances (if needed). Small amounts are injected into affected areas followed by ozone injection, a mixture of ozone/oxygen gas at certain concentration. This stimulates cells crucial for tissue repair, such as joints, cartilage, muscles, and ligaments. Highly Concentrated Platelet Rich Plasma (hcPRP) utilizes the patient’s own blood cells platelets to enhance tissue repair. hcPRP is rich in growth factors and signaling molecules that stimulate healing of bone, tendons, ligaments, and cartilage. Combining hcPRP with Prolozone and intraarticular Low Level Laser Therapy with Red, Green, and Blue spectrum has considerably improved the way of healing.
The result of this combination is nothing short of remarkable.
