Help Us Save Compounded Meds!
Did you know that the FDA is seeking to ban multiple compounded medications so you will no longer be able to get them? Integrative Functional Medicine is all about personalized treatment. Your doctor’s ability to prescribe compounded medication is a cornerstone in helping you achieve maximal health and vitality. For a variety of conditions ranging from menopause, hormonal imbalances, chronic fatigue, mitochondrial dysfunction, etc., the use of safe unique compounded medications plays a critical role in helping patients regain their health. They provide individualized care from a pharmaceutical standpoint. Unfortunately for a variety of reasons, including the influence of Big Pharma with one-size-fits-all medicine, your right to precise, personalized, and proactive medicine is in jeopardy.
It is of vital importance that we all rally around this issue—medications that help millions of people are about to be taken away from us for no sound clinical reason. The clinicians who work in the trenches and actually see patients who can’t be helped by mass-produced, patented medications will no longer have a really important tool available to them for helping their patients heal on a personalized level. We at The UltraWellness Center are asking our community to be informed and stand up for the right to have effective, safe, and personalized compounded medications remain available to all. Please click on the links below to read more and send a message to your senators and congressmen—a loud message that we will not be denied our right to compounded medications when clinically indicated. Two critical medications include bioidentical hormones and NAD+; the latter is used for multiple purposes including addiction, fatigue, and mitochondrial support. Americans deserve safe access to all effective medications, including nutraceuticals and bio-identical hormones.
