Jump Start Your Fat Loss with Detox

drinkingwater

Every day, our bodies are exposed to huge amounts of toxins in our environment. They come several forms including alcohol, pesticides, insecticides, preservatives in our foods, parabens and other chemicals in lotions. If left alone, these toxins will overtake our bodies, leading us to heart disease, cancer, diabetes, high blood pressure, degenerative arthritis and other serious health conditions.

Furthermore, these chemicals are hormone disruptors, which cause hormones to fall out of balance. Symptoms of hormonal imbalance from toxins include dizziness, loss of mental acuity, weight gain, joint and muscle aches and pains, and fatigue. Detoxing helps your hormones to be balanced, nutrients to be better absorbed, and even contributes to healthier weight loss, or true fat loss.

Glutathione is the most critical and integral part of your detoxification system. Toxins “stick onto” glutathione and are carried out of the body through waste. This helps you reach peak mental and physical function and protects your body against disease. Glutathione comes in several forms, including a convenient sublingual tablet. It quickly dissolves under the tongue, so it’s fast and convenient.

To find out if glutathione is a good choice for you, call one of your Hotze Pharmacists today, (281) 828-9088.

 

How to Get Rid of Yeast for Good

Want to Get Yeast Free With Me?

The yeast-free diet is a great way to shed unwanted pounds, enjoy a healthier lifestyle and feel more energy. In order to get rid of the yeast for good, it’s crucial to kill the yeast in the gastrointestinal (GI) tract, which usually requires the following medications.

Nystatin:

  • Anti-yeast medication that works in the GI tract to eliminate yeast
  • Only affects the GI tract and is not metabolized by the liver or absorbed into the bloodstream
  • Side effects are generally related to yeast die-off, such as bloating, gas and abdominal cramps. These side effects typically occur at the beginning of treatment and subside after a few days.
  • Unlike some nystatin on the market, Hotze Pharmacy’s nystatin is sugar-free.

Yeast can be finicky, and when you try to eliminate it in the colon, it likes to show up in other places, i.e. athlete’s foot fungal infections, vaginal yeast infections, fungal skin rashes, and fungal toenail infections. To keep this from happening, your provider may also prescribe fluconazole.

Fluconazole:

  • Systemic yeast medication which enters the bloodstream and throughout the body.
  • This is usually a short, 7-day treatment.
  • Has several known drug interactions, so if you are taking other prescriptions, discuss with your pharmacist before taking it.

Whether you join us for Yeast Free with Me or are beginning the program on your own, if you have questions about your medications, please contact Hotze Pharmacy at (281) 828-9088.
