Since hormone levels in each person can greatly vary, the approach to therapy is different from person to person. The “one-size-fits-all” model offered by the pharmaceutical industry through commercially available medications does not take into account the uniqueness of your body. A simple blood test or saliva test reveals a panel of hormone levels that helps your healthcare provider fashion a therapy that is catered to you. We recognize that every person requires a regimen that is specifically designed to address the needs of each individual. Learn More

An average person will take about 7,000 steps in one day, so in an average lifetime, a person would have been able to tread around the earth by foot more than 4 times over. Constant wear and tear or acute injuries can be the cause of troublesome foot and ankle pain and many other foot and ankle conditions. Keeping your feet healthy is integral to an active and more fruitful lifestyle. Experiencing pain or any other unusual condition should not be neglected and we encourage you to be fully engaged with your physician and pharmacist to prevent, treat, or cure a suspected disorder.

Andropause in aging men closely resembles menopause in women in many aspects – physiologically and symptomatically. Testosterone levels progressively decrease with age while estrogen levels may even begin to increase in some men. This change in hormone levels can manifest itself in a number of ways such as altered body composition (decreased muscle mass and increased fat mass), less energy, little to no sex drive, night sweats, mood changes, and diminished cognitive function. If you feel like you may be going through this and it is affecting your daily functioning, testosterone supplementation may be right for you. We encourage you to speak to your physician or to one of our knowledgeable pharmacists about what options may be right for you. We have the necessary tools to prepare topical lotions, creams, gels, and solutions with the strength that specifically caters to your needs. Learn More

As science and biotechnology has progressed we’ve discovered that a healthy lifestyle consisting of regular exercise and a balanced diet that is rich in colorful fruits and vegetables, nuts, whole grains, and fish can make you feel and even look younger. This should be a lifestyle we all strive for but may occasionally fall short of, and in the seemingly unavoidable fast pace society we encounter each day, the effects of aging quickly develop. Aside from the fact that aging will take its natural course whether we wish it or not, there are also environmental elements that we are exposed to at one point or another that speed the process such as sun exposure, smoking, alcohol use, stress, fatigue, and a sedentary lifestyle. Life’s inescapable factors that advance the skin aging process cannot be completely removed, nor can we put a pause on the natural course of aging. The good news is that it can be slowed down using restorative skin care products innovated through the art of compounding. Learn More

Did you know that your skin is the largest organ of your body? As the first line of defense against harmful external factors, your skin acts as a protective barrier. It also functions with versatility to allow for sensation, to regulate body temperature, to control evaporation, and to synthesize vitamin D. The multipurpose role your skin plays means that keeping your skin healthy should not be overlooked. A broad range of diseases and conditions can affect the skin with a variation in presentation. From dryness to psoriasis, some conditions may be symptomatically severe or mild, and some may be temporary or permanent. It is recommended that you make an appointment with your dermatologist once per year for a full body examination or any time you observe something unusual on your skin. Learn More
