“I developed an open wound on my right ankle. Everything that I was asked to do by my doctor didn’t work and the wound was actually getting worse. A compounding pharmacist suggested two compounded medicines to be applied daily. In two months, my open wound was closed and the pain was gone. The treatment worked as promised.”

M.L., Patient

“Within five days of using the topical solution, my chronic left knee pain subsided approximately 90%, my mental faculties were not impaired professionally, and I am able to sleep pain free. The topical solution developed by Dr. Lanier of Amex Pharmacy relieves[s] the chronic pain in my left knee. I find the topical solution much more effective than the Ibuprofen prescription.”

Here’s To Mom’s Health This Mother’s Day

April 28, 2016
With Mother’s Day approaching, here is a re-post of an excellent article from Parenthood.com on the importance of Mom’s health.   Here’s To Mom’s Health This Mother’s Day By Kristin Carroll As Mother’s Day fast approaches, there so many special things that moms look forward to:breakfast in bed, homemade cards from the kids, a nice spring bouquet or even personalized jewelry from the hubby. While those gifts are thoughtful and always appreciated, most moms just want to spend the day with their loved ones. So this year, I’d like to challenge you to forego the chocolates and picture frames and encourage a different kind of gift that also gives back to those you love – the gift of your health and well-being. Mother’s Day marks the kick-off of National Women’s Health Week (May 11-17): a week designed for women across the nation to make their health a top priority and take simple steps to live safer and healthier lives. Brought to you by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services’ Office on Women’s Health, the theme this year is “It’s Your Time”, encouraging women to take time for their health and receive regular checkups, eat healthier, get enough sleep, manage their stress, and stay active with fitness and exercise. As many busy moms know, it’s easy to get caught up in the daily tasks of work and family life. Between work, cooking and cleaning, making lunches, paying bills, shuttling the kids to where they need to be, spending quality time with your spouse, and absolutely everything in between, you might laugh at the thought of “me” time. So often, we as mothers, try to do the impossible. We try to be everything to everybody, putting the needs of our husband and children above our own. But as a result, our health and fitness suffers, leaving us to be no good to anyone. If you’re guilty of neglecting one of the most important people in your family, pull out that to-do list and add yourself back at the top. Not only will you reap the benefits, but so will everyone around you. Here’s why: An Active Mom is a Happy Mom Besides the obvious physical benefits, activity and exercise can have a profound effect on your mood and overall state of mind.  Whether it’s a 5-mile morning run or a brisk walk around the block, exercise has been found to stimulate the body’s production of endorphins and increase serotonin, making you feel happier and more elated, while also decreasing cortisol and other stress hormones that bring about feelings of anxiety and sadness. Sun, fresh air, and nature are also critical mood enhancers, so activities outside are especially encouraged. If you’ve been waiting to dust off that old tennis racket or try out your first Zumba class, indulge in the opportunity. The activity will serve as a stress-reliever and give your roaming mind a rest! You’ll be beaming happiness at home, and rest assured, your family will notice. Remember, happy moms

Women’s Health Has Never Been More Important

April 25, 2016
Women’s lives have transformed over the centuries. In the 1900’s, the lifespan of a woman was only about 50 years. Now, in the new millennium, the average life expectancy of women in America is 83 years old and that number is on the rise. Not only are women living longer, but they can also anticipate the possibility of enjoying a better quality of life throughout their span of years. This is only possible, however, if women take charge of their own bodies and understand how they can maximize their personal health and wellness. A women’s health does not refer only to her physical condition but to her total well-being. It is not determined solely by biological factors but also by effects of workload, nutrition and stress. Some may argue that a woman’s health is the most important in today’s society. As we know, the health of families and communities are tied to the health of women. The illness or death of a woman has serious and far-reaching consequences for the health of her children, family and even community. Today, women’s health is taking on a higher position in society and people are realizing that while women have many of the same diseases as men, their symptoms and treatments may not always be identical. One famous slogan, “Healthy Women, Healthy World”, embodies the fact that as custodians of family health, women play a critical role in maintaining the health and overall well-being of her communities. However, because of the many roles women play, they too often are focused on the health care of their spouse or children, while neglecting their own needs. Therefore, it is imperative that women take the time to maintain good health for themselves as well. In fact, a number of illnesses that affect women can actually be prevented with proper woman’s care as a priority. The number one killer among American women is heart disease, and it is imperative that women are aware of this fact and act accordingly. The American Heart Association provides a diagram to help women take the necessary precautions to protect themselves. At each stage of a woman’s life, there are important preventative health care steps to follow in order to provide early detection of medical problems. Many women may neglect health care exams for a number of reasons, however, in the end it comes down to whether or not you wish to make yourself a priority. After putting so much energy into caring for the lives of others, it is time women deserve that same level of care toward themselves. We at Amex Pharmacy understand the importance of women’s health, and educating the communities we serve nationwide on the best preventative treatments and latest wellness strategies. So please stay tuned to our blog, as we constantly share different theories on how women can lead healthier lives.

Melbourne is Growing Folks!

April 21, 2016
Driving through Melbourne, the typical site these days includes cranes and construction equipment across the city. From Titusville to Palm Bay, the Treasure Coast’s economy is outpacing much of the state, and wages are expected to grow an average of 3.8% over the next few years, the best improvement statewide. The signs of growth are everywhere… Port Canaveral is expanding its cruise and cargo areas and the Vehicle Assembly Building at the Kennedy Space Center is being prepped for commercial use. In the center of town, new owners plan to replace the dilapidated Miracle City Mall with a modern shopping, dining and entertainment complex later this year. “The Suntree/Viera area of Melbourne has seen an influx of commercial development as we are coming out of our recent recession,” said Jill Rose, vice president of retail services for BishopBeal. “This increase in activity is fueled by the higher income demographic and solid employment in the area, which sparked The Fresh Market’s attention as they sought additional areas in Florida to serve.” In West Melbourne, Mayor Hal Rose is touting the brand-new 933 home Sawgrass Lakes subdivisions. “I’m putting Orlando on notice,” Rose says. “We could reposition ourselves to be this grand city.” For the town’s retail scene, the Mayor has plans for several major retailers such as, L.A Fitness, Wawa and the discount store Five Below. One major commercial addition to the city is the Holmes Regional Medical Center. Located in the heart of Melbourne. Patients will be treated with the latest in cardiac care and amenities, and they heart center will offer a number of unexpected services to its patients, such as bellhops to carry their belongings. Hotel-style rooms will be designed with a home-like feel to them and will include cable television and DVD viewing options. The hospital’s employees can also enjoy on-site concierge services. As well, Holmes Regional is proud to be the first hospital in its county to offer state-of-the artrobotics-assisted surgery for urology, prostate and gynecological conditions as well as advanced anterior hip replacement and shoulder procedures. With the thriving economic construction in Melbourne, the Treasure Coast is one of the fastest growing areas in the state of Florida today. As the Mayor of Melbourne said, “Things are improving greatly and as time goes by, they will continue to improve.”

Sun Protection Tips From The Experts

April 18, 2016
As the weather warms and families spend more time outdoors, The Florida Society of Dermatology and Dermatologic Surgery wants to remind Floridians about the importance of sun protection. Please remember that these are guidelines only. It is important to see your Board Certified Dermatologist who will be best able to customize recommendations to fit your clinical situation and needs. Choosing a sunscreen: Look for one that provides “broad spectrum” protection (blocking both UVA and UVB rays), water resistance and a minimum SPF of 30. Choosing sunscreen for infants: Look for the ingredients zinc and/or titanium dioxide. When to toss: Discard sunscreen that is past its expiration date or is over two years old. Use your noggin: The best combination for protecting your head is sunscreen, sunglasses and a hat. Often-neglected areas are the ears, back of the neck, lips and scalp at the part in the hair. Pick the right shades: Look for sunglasses that are described as blocking 99% or 100% of UVA and UVB, or as providing UV absorption up to 400 nm. Cover up: Wear tightly woven darker clothing in the sun, as it reflects more UV rays, and look for fabrics made of nylon or Dacron, which are more protective than cotton. Beware reflections: Water, sand and even porch decks can reflect and intensify the damaging rays of the sun. Check your shadow: The sun is strongest between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. If your shadow appears to be shorter than you are, seek shade. Be a role model: Teach your children good habits for sun protection. Eighty percent of a person’s lifetime sun exposure is acquired before age 18. African-Americans and Hispanics need protection too: People with naturally darker skin aren’t immune to the effects of the sun and can still burn. Apply and reapply: Whatever type of sunscreen you prefer (gel, cream or sprays are all good choices), be sure to reapply every two to three hours during times of prolonged exposure.

Sun Care Matters

April 2, 2016
With warmer days around the corner, it is time to get informed on the dangers of sun damage to your skin. We all know that the immediate danger of too much sun is sunburn. If you look at sunburned skin under a microscope you would see that the cells and blood vessels have started to become damaged. After repeated sun damage, the skin can even start to look dry, wrinkled and discolored. Although it may appear that the skin thicker, it has actually weakened and, as a result can bruise more easily. While sunburn is the first cause of damage to your skin, the most serious threat is skin cancer, which has recently become the most common of all cancers. About 3.5 million cases of skin cancer are diagnosed in the United States each year. Melanoma, a more dangerous type of skin cancer, accounted for more than 73,000 skin cancer cases in 2015. However, doctors strongly believe that skin cancer is the most avoidable with proper sun damage prevention. Over the years you may have been taught that your body needs sunlight to make Vitamin D because it is not found naturally in most foods. While this used to be true, many foods today are actually fortified with Vitamin D during the manufacturing process. Therefore, sun exposure is not as important for the body’s vitamin D supply as it used to be. Of course being outdoors makes most people feel good, so we spend hours out in the sun. But you still need to protect yourself from the sun’s damaging effects while enjoying yourself outdoors. Here are some skin care tips you want to focus on when planning for your days out under the sun. Cover Up Wear tightly-woven clothing that blocks out light. Here is a test: Place your hand between a single layer of the clothing and a light source. If you can see your hand through the fabric, that garment is offering little to no protection. Sunscreen A sun protection factor or SPF or at least 15 blocks 93% of UV rays. To guard against skin cancer you want to block both UVA and UVB rays. Therefore when applying sunscreen be sure to follow the application directions printed on the bottle. Wear A Hat Through on a wide brimmed sun hat when you know you will be spending hours under the hot sun. A wise brim is preferred because it protects the neck, ears, eyes, forehead, nose and even scalp. Wear UV shades UV blocking sunglasses are important for protecting the delicate skin around the eyes as well as the eyes themselves. Research has shown that long hours in the sun without proper eye protection can increase your chances of developing certain eyes diseases. However, this does not mean that you need to go out and purchase expensive sunglasses. All they need to do is block 99-100% of UVA and UVB radiation to be effective. Sun protection is essential to skin cancer prevention. Educate yourself on the dangers of sun damage and use these tips are a starting point for proper sun protection.
