    5 Weekly Habits That Can Help You Lose Weight

    If you're tired of seeing your weight fluctuate, you may need to add some healthy habits to your weekly schedule.

    Start Small

    Consider these five small improvements that you can make this week that can add up to big results towards your goals for managing or losing weight.

    1. Stock your kitchen. You can make room for the good things by getting rid of junk food. Keep healthy snacks on hand, along with staples for light meals.
    2. Plan your meals. Write out a menu for your daily meals and snacks. You'll be able to tell at a glance if you're getting all your required nutrients, and you'll probably eat less!
    3. Cook more. Restaurant meals and frozen food products tend to have more calories, salt, and sugar. Preparing your own food allows you to control the ingredients and calories to satisfy your health and nutrition goals.

    The Thyroid Hormones

    The thyroid gland affects the function of just about every organ system in the body and is an essential component in the balance between female hormones and the adrenal gland. For the other hormones to work together, the thyroid hormones must first be balanced.

    The thyroid gland is controlled by the pituitary gland, which produces thyroid stimulating hormone, or TSH. TSH regulates two of the four thyroid hormones that are produced by the thyroid gland—triiodothyronine (T3) and thyroxine (T4). The other thyroid hormones, T1 and T2, are the results of iodination of tyrosine molecules, and do not require clinical correction. There is an inverse relationship between TSH and T3/T4; if the thyroid does not produce enough T4, the pituitary will secrete more TSH to stimulate T4 release. T4 is then converted to T3 by a deiodinase enzyme.

    It is common practice to prescribe only T4 to patients who may be suffering from hypothyroidism (an underactive thyroid); however, a study from the

    6 Helpful Supplements for a Healthy Holiday Season

    Staying Healthy While Enjoying Holiday Festivities

    The wonderful aroma of apple pie, the delicious holiday cookies that your kind neighbor drops off, the great-tasting wine at a holiday get-together… It is so tempting to be around holiday foods and treats and want to get a taste of everything.

    And of course, there is an abundance of fatty, high-carb, and sugary foods that you can’t seem to get away from. Here are some suggestions to help with cravings, temptations, and the aftermath of overindulgence.

    Low Dose Naltrexone and Psoriasis

    Psoriasis is a skin disease that presents as red, itchy scaly patches on the knees, elbows, trunk, and scalp, among other places. Psoriasis is a chronic (long-term) condition that is common but has no cure. Its symptoms go through cycles, with flare-ups lasting a few weeks or months, then resolving or going into remission.

    The skin can be affected by psoriasis in any area of the body. It's possible to have more than one form of psoriasis at once, and people can experience different types over their lifetimes.

    Talk with our pharmacist about facial psoriasis, genital psoriasis, psoriasis of the hands, feet, and nails, scalp psoriasis, and psoriasis in skin folds.

    Psoriasis affects more than 3% of the US adult population. That is more than 7.5 million US adults.
