Your Bodily Fluids and the Story they Tell

Paisley Prescriptions - July 2018

The human body is a well-built machine offering warning signs just like your car. While these signs are not flashing lights, they are easy to detect by just paying attention. Obviously aches and pains are  warning signs indicating something is wrong. Another warning sign is your bodily fluids. That’s right, the stuff most of us think is gross, like poop, pee, discharges and blood, actually are magnificent storytellers about what’s going on inside our bodies. Here’s what we found out:

Dark or Fair, Don't Err When it comes to Skin Care

Paisley Prescriptions - June 2018

Why are facials important?

Facials are often thought of as luxuries. Actually, regular facials can benefit you both physically and mentally. Today’s facials are more advanced than ever with increasing products usage and mechanical devices to fight the aging process. Facials are not only beneficial for women, but for men as well. Men exfoliate their faces with regular shaving, however that’s only the bottom section! The whole face is constantly exposed meaning the face, neck and chest must be addressed in promoting good skin health, while fighting the aging process.

On the Right Tract: Urinary Tract and Kidney Health

Paisley Prescriptions - May 2018

What is the treatment for Kidney stones and are there any preventative measures?
Kidney stones are a common occurrence in this area of the country. Our humid, subtropical climate can lead to dehydration, which is the most common cause of kidney stones. The easiest way to prevent kidney stones is to make sure you drink lots of fluids and stay hydrated.

The vast majority of kidney stones are calcium oxalate stones. It is not the calcium that is the problem, but the oxalic acid. Oxalate is an organic acid found in the kola nut, used for flavoring in many popular cola brands, and green leafy vegetables. Consider avoiding large quantities of foods containing oxalate such as colas, chocolate, green leafy vegetables—including spinach—and iced tea. On the other hand, citrus drinks such as lemonade contain a chemical called potassium citrate that helps prevent stones.

Don't Forget

Paisley Prescriptions - April 2018

Are their foods/vitamins that boost brain power?
Supplements for memory are plentiful, and, yes, there seems to be a relationship to diets with proper fatty-acid content and increased brain function. Most supplements contain Omega-3 fatty acid compounds blended with a strong B-complex. Many will also have Ginko, Green-tea extracts (stimulants), natural anti-inflammatory products, such as turmeric, and or Acetyl-L-Carnitine. All these supplements assist the body in enhanced blood and oxygen flow to the brain.

Is there anything we can do to prevent memory diseases?
Let’s face it. Everyone realizes that memory loss is the truest sign of aging we as human beings experience. The question, “Where are my keys or cell phone?” plays havoc in all our lives eventually. While an inconvenient problem some of the time, frequently “losing” things, or forgetting why you entered a room, can be early signs of several memory disease states.

Birth Control

Paisley Prescriptions - March 2018

What are the most popular forms of birth control today?
I can’t say in our practice that there is one form of birth control more popular than another; it is patient-dependent. Some people prefer permanent sterilization in the form of bilateral tubal ligation. Other choices depend on how a patient would like to space their children. Patients may choose long-acting, reversible contraceptive devices such as Nexplanon, which is inserted in the arm and good for three years, or an IUD, which can be good for up to 10 years. They may decide they would like children closer in age and prefer oral contraceptives, or Depo Provera injection.
Why is it okay for my birth control

to make me skip my period for months?
It is okay not to have a menses if you are on birth control because birth control is keeping the lining very thin.

Dependence on opiates, including prescription medication, such as oxycodone, hydrocodone, morphine and fentanyl, and street drugs (heroin), has reached epidemic proportions across the U.S. Many medical professionals and legislators regard this epidemic as a public health emergency. An overdose with these substances often results in death. More commonly, opiate dependency ruins lives by resulting in financial ruin, breakdown in relationships, and destruction of the family unit. As a result, crimes are committed to feed the dependency and jail time often occurs.
