It's been awhile since I wrote a post here, but I'm going to keep it brief! There are lots of behind the scenes changes with how we order B12 and other injectables for you. These changes involve the compounding pharmacies, the FDA, and our own personal decisions on how to move forward.
Rather than bore you with all the details, the simplest way to describe this is that we will not have injectables available on-site anymore. We can work out an arrangement for you to commit to a series of injections, either learning how to inject yourself, or us injecting you in office. But these are individual prescriptions that we will have to order in advance from a pharmacy.
We'll discuss individual options with you in office, during a regular appointment. We will also discuss the necessity or non-necessity of these shots for your individual case. In short, just take your sublingual B12 unless you have a wicked case of macrocytic or anemia.
Spotted Jewelweed (Impatiens biflora) is an invaluable tool when out in the woods hiking. The saponins found in the stem or leaves can emulsify and diminish the damage caused by poison ivy. It's also great for bug bites, rashes from stinging nettles, burns, cuts, acne, eczema, fungal infections, or any other skin irritation.
