Compounding is the art and science of tailor making medications for unique needs and preferences. A compounding chemist is a pharmacist who prepares human and veterinary medication into different dosage forms. These may be troche, lozenge, capsules, transdermal gels and creams, suppository and pessary dosage forms.
Most of these require a Doctor's prescription and are customised to your needs and can contain more than one medication in this dosage form. We can also compound medications that are no longer commercially available. Our goal is to work closely with your doctor to improve the outcome of your treatment and health.
 
 

Food Combinations May Lower Cholesterol

      Cholesterol-lowering foods may be more effective when consumed as combinations rather than as single foods. In a study done in Toronto, Ontario, more than 30% of motivated participants who ate a selection of cholesterol-lowering foods under real-world conditions were able to lower LDL-cholesterol concentrations by more than 20%, which was not significantly different from their response to a first-generation statin drug taken under metabolically controlled conditions for one month. Sixty-six participants with high cholesterol levels were placed on diets high in soy protein (tofu), viscous fibers (oat bran, okra, eggplant), nuts (almonds, walnuts, peanuts) and plant sterols (margarine). 31.8% of the participants (21 of 66) who were compliant with their diets reduced LDL-cholesterol by more than 20% in one year. In general, the more dieters complied with the prescribed diet, the more their LDL level dropped.
