Are you ill? Do you need a prescription? What if the medicine prescribed is going to make you more sick?
Yes, this can happen if you are gluten-free or allergen-free and are taking medicine that has hidden “inactive” ingredients containing one or more allergens. Getting your pharmacist to understand your needs, take the time to research the ingredients’ data, and actually pass this information along to you seems to be a bit much to expect. Then, if it is discovered that your prescription contains unsafe elements, how long will it take to get a new “safe” medicine prescribed by your physician? This can be frustrating under normal conditions, but when you or your loved one is not well, you don’t really have the time or energy to struggle through all of this detective work. You need health and healing now.
Not many people realize that the very medicine that their physician is prescribing might be a problem. Nor did the physician. This is often the case because MDs are generally not equipped with much nutrition or holistic training in medical school. These are practices that require further specialization. So what can be done? Well, minus requiring an additional training program of your upcoming MDs, there is a better, and more immediate, solution.
Our compounding pharmacists have the education, experience, and resources to create medication “compounds” according to your physician’s prescription, using only the “active” ingredients that are required to address the illness, and leaving out the “inactive” ingredients used for binding the substances into a pill form. Generally, this is done by taking the necessary ingredients and putting them in a capsule form to be swallowed, or adding the active ingredients to a liquid substance to be taken by spoon or in a drink.
