Drug Shortages…Who’s to Blame?

Are politics to blame for the current drug shortage crisis?  Or, is the reason health care providers have to scramble to find drugs for their patients more fundamental than that?  It’s inevitable that when a problem exists and persists that someone or something is blamed.  There has been plenty of finger pointing going on lately as various experts, politicians and government officials try to explain why the United States is in such a dire situation Continue Reading

Did CORN do this?

I discover something new – for me – at least once a day. Today’s discovery startled me and I feel obligated to share it. First, a little background. I like shooting sports, the ones where I can use a shotgun to blast clay targets out of the sky – trap, skeet, sporting clays, etc. I’m pretty good considering I just started in 2009 when I was only 63. In trap, for example, I generally break Continue Reading

Biliary Dyskinesia & PPIs

Karen called today. She received an order of supplements she had ordered and read the information we had included about PPI drugs – the ones that end in “ium” and are supposed to be used for short lengths of time to treat gastric reflux symptoms. Karen’s PPI was the PURPLE ONE. She called to relate her story of miserable pains caused by what her doctor called Biliary Dyskinesia, which is a disturbance in the coordination Continue Reading

JCB Earns PCAB Accreditation

JCB Laboratories has recently earned the Pharmacy Compounding Accreditation Board’s (PCAB) Seal of Accreditation. While JCB Labs has always had processes in place that result in the highest quality compounded products, this accreditation validates those processes. With the demand of compounded prescriptions increasing each year, there has been a need for an enhanced, profession-wide system of standards whereby each compounding pharmacy can test its quality processes. While compounding pharmacies are regulated by the state in which Continue Reading

A 21 day detox program…

I’ve been asked to evaluate a detoxification program. Here’s the basic premise of the 21-day program; “Removing sugar from your diet is the fastest way to lose fat and increase your energy. When your blood sugar is out of balance it causes depression, causes you to store sugar as fat instead of using it for energy, causing you to have highs and lows in your energy, and leading to diabetes.” I applaud every effort to Continue Reading

The system is screwed.

After reading this article at Mercola.com, I’ve come to a conclusion: The whole damn system is screwed up. People are being harmed and some of them even die, and one is too many. Drug makers know what they’re doing and they should be held responsible for the damage they do in spite of knowing better. I’m talking about personal responsibility not those silly financial “punishments” dished out every so often, such as the fines mentioned Continue Reading

We are many parts

We are many parts, but all one body (from the 1986 song by Marty Haugen). The focus of that song is on how all of us, though seeming to be distinct individuals, are actually all part of a single body. In those few words is housed a deep metaphor for the truths that support our very being. It is also a true metaphor for our individual bodies. Over the centuries we have poked and prodded, Continue Reading
