Caregiver Pharmacy Support

It can be difficult to be a caregiver and manage multiple or complex medications for a loved one.  It is important to ensure medications are taken appropriately to help maintain good health.  A visiting pharmacist provides personal support with regular medication delivery and home consultations. The pharmacist reviews a client’s prescription drugs and over the counter medications to advise if there are any drug interactions and makes adjustments as necessary. This level of support can reduce emergency room visits and hospital stays and results in strong, trusting relationships between clients, caregivers and pharmacists.  The visiting pharmacist also provides seamless care for hospital discharge patients and works closely with other health professionals to deliver a high level of care to the client.  Care is tailored to specific individual needs such as assisting with blood pressure readings, adding medications as needed to adherence packaging and making changes in an timely manner.

Tarot Readings and You

Tarot Readings offer an alternate way to look at past situations, current influencing energies and potential and opportunities.
Readings may be general or specific. Common themes arising in Readings are:

(1) personal growth, drive, enterprise, adventure, travel;

(2) love, relationships, desires, dreams, creativity;

(3) state of mind, courage, actions, communication, resourcefulness; and

(4) work, studies, results, stability, health, prosperity.

Use discretion and the gift of free will in all aspects of your life. How does tarot work?  Tarot cards are visual tools whose images bypass the person’s conscious mind so that he/she gleans insights from their own inner being.  Archetypal images and energies found on tarot cards are seen in famous works of art as well as spoken and written about by Carl Jung, renowned psychiatrist and our contemporary spiritual teachers, healers and leaders.  Readings offer validation and/or provide different perspectives for those seeking peace, harmony, fulfillment and joy.


Reiki for Relaxation

Reiki is a Japanese technique for stress reduction and relaxation which also promotes healing. It is based on the idea that a life force energy flows through us, and is administered with a gentle ‘laying on hands’ technique. When your life force energy is low, you are more likely to become stressed or sick, and when it is high, you experience an increased sense of health and happiness. Reiki treats a person as a whole; the mind, body, spirit, and emotions. It creates a feeling of peace, relaxation, and well-being. Everyone has a slightly different experience, however, some have described a Reiki treatment as feeling like a wonderful glowing radiance. It is a simple, natural, and safe method of spiritual healing and self-improvement that everyone can experience. It also works well in conjunction with modern medical treatments to relieve side effects and promote recovery. Reiki helps keep you in Balance!

Beat Chronic Inflammation with Cilantro

Cilantro, also known as Coriander or Chinese parsley, is one of the most effective natural detoxifying remedies for removing heavy metals and other harmful toxins from your body. It is particularly great for removing mercury. The chemical compounds in cilantro bind to toxic metals and loosen them from the tissue. Heavy metals have been connected with serious health problems, such as heart disease, kidney disease, lung disease, emotional problems and cancer. Cilantro itself is a great source of healthy minerals, like potassium, manganese, calcium, magnesium and iron. It also has awesome amounts of vitamin K and A. It has been shown to be an effective antifungal, antiseptic and anti-inflammatory, which all can help you detox your system and return to balance.

5 Ways to Reduce Inflamed Arteries 

1. Stop smoking. Smoking hardens the arteries and increases inflammation. Research shows you can reverse all the damaging effects to your arteries within 10 years of quitting.

2. Think olive oil, fish, and nuts. People who stick with a Mediterranean-style diet based on fruits, vegetables, nuts, and olive oil can lower their levels of inflammation. It works by increasing omega-3 fats to fight inflammation.

3. Get active. Exercise is a great way to lower inflammation without any of the side effects. Shrink your waist size. If you’re a woman with a waist of over 35” or a man with a waist of over 40”, you probably have high inflammation.

4. Get enough sleep. A new study shows that elderly people with high blood pressure who sleep less than 7.5 hours a night have dramatically elevated chances of having a stroke or heart attack.

5. Reduce stress. High levels of stress hormones can lead to the release of excess inflammatory chemicals.

Medication Reviews

When managing multiple or complex medications, it is key to have an awareness of all of the potential side effects and possible drug interactions.  This includes all over the counter medications.  A pharmacist will review all of these products and help to ensure that you are taking the right products at the right times.  Pharmacists conducting home visits can help to monitor the effects on a regular basis.  If there are any concerns, the pharmacist will contact the physician to discuss possible adjustments in doses.  The goal in all medication reviews is to prevent any issues before they happen. Medication reviews can often prevent falls, visit to hospitals or emergency rooms and help people stay in their own homes as long as possible.  This provides peace of mind to both patients and caregivers, allowing them to more fully enjoy their lives. Call our pharmacist for a medication review in the comfort of your home.
