What are the best products to help manage Diabetes?

 

This week I want to talk about diabetes and how to manage the condition. Fortunately, with some additional care and attention, diabetes can be effectively managed all year long. As pharmacists, at Healthcare4all we are providers of diabetes products and can give advice on managing diabetes effectively.

 

 

Avoid catching colds and flu

According to  Diabetes.co.uk, due to the difficulties it can create with diabetes management, people with diabetes are generally at a greater risk in they catch flu. One potentially dangerous complication of flu can be the onset of pneumonia, which people with diabetes are more at risk from developing compared to those without diabetes.

It is therefore important that if you have diabetes you try and stave off colds and flu all year round.

 

Washing your hands

Washing your hands often and using sanitisers can help ward off the germs associated with colds and flu. Getting plenty of rest and having the flu vaccine can help avoid people from getting the flu.

 

Keep warm

The Mayo Clinic advises that people with diabetes stay warm, and keep their feet protected and warm by wearing comfortable shoes and socks to help keep circulation problems at bay.

 

Eat well and exercise

Try and stay healthy throughout the winter by eating well. Have a well-balanced diet that comprises of plenty of fruit, vegetables, protein and grains.

Taking regular exercise can also help you stay fit to ward off potentially harmful illnesses.

 

Diabetes products

Diabetes monitoring with products such as a diabetes monitor and a diabetes meter is extremely important during the winter. Such products enable diabetics to test, monitor and control their blood sugar levels.

Healthcare4all has a range of diabetes monitoring products and equipment for sale.

The Accu-Chek Mobile system makes blood glucose monitoring easier & more convenient, and allows you to test without inserting or disposing of strips

Based on an improved enzyme composition that reacts with glucose specifically, the Medisana Meditouch-2 Glucose Diabetes Testing Monitor helps to minimise the influence of other substances.

Its time to show your Cold Sore The Door!

Are you searching for the best cold sore remedies? Well, HealthCare4All has done the research for you!

This week I want to talk about an amazing NHS Recommended, CE & FDA approved product we found for the treatment of cold sores. Its called the VIRULITE COLD SORE MACHINE and as soon as I listed it on amazon the 5 out of 5 reviews started rolling in!

What is it Virulite and how does it work?

 

 

1. Original Cold Sore machine made by Virulite

2. VCS1 Stops Cold Sores in their tracks when used at the first sign

3. Helps your skin to defend against the attack of the Herpes simplex virus

4. Uses Passive light invisible to the naked eye. Stimulating your body into reacting to the Cold Sore virus

5. Proven to work over and over. In some cases, the use of this machine prevents future attacks

6. Its developers claim that it  heals cold sores twice as quickly as using an antiviral cream.

7. Virulite is thought to increase the immune response to the virus

Why we like The Virulite Cold Sore Machine so much!

It is incredibly reliable and lasts for years. The only maintenance required is an occasional battery change.

At my pharmacy I see a lot of customers that are suffering with Cold sores and they get very frustrated with the current treatment options such as aciclovir (Zovirax) cream. The reason being that they are not very effective and in order to have any relief you have to catch the cold sore early. Unfortunately once you have the virus you have it for life as Cold Sores recur.

Virulite is different- it works by emitting invisible light which stimulates local immune response. It has NO harmful side effects and unlike the creams it works at any stage of sore.

Virulite has been approved by the NHS some years ago, and is also FDA approved which needed lots of evidence to show it really works.

The only downside about the machine is the cost. At £99.98 & FREE Delivery it is not cheap! However the Virulite is a very high quality product that is recommended by the NHS and proven to be Much more effective than creams for the treatment of cold sores. Also, we feel it is worth the money as the evidence has shown that the device also reduces the recurrence of cold sores.

 

 

How to use the Virulite Cold Sore Machine

The device should ideally be used as soon as the customer feels the “tingle” indicating that a cold sore is about to erupt. Simply hold the device against the affected area and press the activation button.

A visible light indicator lets you know that invisible infra-red light is being delivered to the area. After three minutes a “beep” lets you know that treatment is complete.

Customers are advised to repeat the treatment 12 hours later. If the cold sore progresses, the device should be used four times a day for two more days.

The Evidence

Results of a trial of 60 patients (published in the Journal of Clinical and Experimental Dermatology in 2001)showed that a single application of Virulite CS healed cold sores in an average of 4.3 days, compared with 8.1 days for topical aciclovir applied five times a day.

A second trial, involving 32 patients (published in the same journal in 2006), showed that Virulite CS had a mean healing time of 6.3 days compared with 9.4 days for no treatment. The evidence has shown that the device also reduces the recurrence of cold sores and this is the subject of ongoing research.

The device is ISO13485 compliant (an international quality standard for medical devices) and has CE approval (showing that the device complies with relevant European health and safety legislation) & also FDA approval. No side effects have been reported.

The Reviews

The Testimonials and reviews for the Virulite are amazing, for example this one by Bobby Lall,

Every year I used to dread February as I knew I would get a cold sore. Obviously like most cold sore sufferers you try everything under the sun, excuse the pun. I stumbled across this product by the usual “cold sore cures” via google. So decided to give it a go; February has come and gone and I had 1 potential flare up which I immediately “attacked” with the Virulite, I thought that it was a coincidence\luck when it didn’t flare up at all. I was absolutely chuffed. I felt a tingling again (march 2010) and a tiny blister appeared – done the Virulite and within 1 day it’s gone. BUY THIS PRODUCT IF YOU SUFFER FROM COLD SORES – it’s the best thing I’ve used. Pain free, no mess easy to use. Brilliant Cold Sore Machine

Its called the LiceTec V Comb. #HealthCare4All are also the UK Distributors!

 

Here is A great article about How to Get Rid of #Nits for Good! Also, it mentions me! 😉 https://smalltalkmag.co.uk/how-to-get-rid-of-nits-for-good/‬

As featured on ITV’s ‘This Morning’

Why is it so amazing?

Unlike most products on the market today, the LiceTec Comb removes both Lice AND Nits. It is completely safe & extremely easy to use. It works by vacuum, so there is no risk of an electrical current to the user or the patient.

You can actually see the lice and nits getting sucked into the illuminated filter so you KNOW that you have caught them! This eliminates the guesswork you have from other products. It even works on Lice that are resistant to chemicals which is becoming a worldwide problem called SUPER LICE!

It can be used as many times as necessary which a major reason we love it so much. The alternative is using lotions that cost £10- £15 and can only be used once! The LiceTec V comb is only £36.95 from HealthCare4All!

What we also love about the LiceTec V-comb is that after it has sucked the lice and nits into the filter, you simply put the cap on and throw the filter away and you KNOW they have been safely disposed of!

As it is a registered medical device, it is marked with CE & FDA approved to give you peace of mind that you have a quality product!

We like to test our internationally sourced products and one thing that we suggest is that Technique on how to use the Comb is important. So please take a look at the instruction videos below.

  • There are no chemicals or allergy causing agents making this ideal for kids with sensitivities

  • There is no need to use shampoo or conditioners as the device is directly applied to dry hair

  • There is no requirement to use smelly or irritating solutions

  • It is THE most effective way of removing lice that I have ever seen – and with my history with battling lice, that is definitely saying something!

  • It is easy to use and operate

  • The built in LED light made it easy to check hair throughout the treatment

If you want to read more about Super Lice,  there has been so much in the press recently. I have listed a few of them below FYI

HealthCare4All recommend the best products to Soothe your Sore, Itchy eyes

This week I want to talk to you about a very common eye condition called Blepharitis. It can develop at any age and the main symptoms are that the edges of your eyelids become red and swollen. In most cases both eyes are affected, but often one eye is worse and generally its worse in the morning. Blepharitis isn’t contagious. Also, if you get seasonal allergies you could be suffering with red, itchy swollen and dry eyes. The products below would be perfect for you!  I will write a post about seasonal allergies later this year with loads of advice and amazing products to give you some relief.

 

 

 

 

What are the Symptoms of Blepharitis?

It can develop at any age and symptoms include

  • crusting, swelling and redness of the eyelids

  • Dry eyes that have a gritty feeling and burning sensation

  • Light sensitivity and blurred vision

  • styes (an infection at the root of an eyelash) on the eyelid

  •  small ulcers on the eyelids

  • crusty eyelashes that stick together

  • uncomfortable to wear contact lenses

How to treat Blepharitis

Cleaning your eyelids to remove the crusts the eyelid margins and unblock the eyelid glands. To begin with you may need to clean your eyelids twice a day. You can do this by Using a warm compress – to make the oil produced by the glands around your eyes more runny.  Gently massaging your eyelids – to push the oils out of the glands. Cleaning your eyelids – to wipe away any excess oil and remove any crusts, bacteria, dust or grime that might have built up.

Unfortunately it is a long term condition that usually can not be cured so its a case of managing it. Even after the symptoms have gone it is a good idea to clean your eyelids at least a couple of times a week to reduce the chances of it recurring.  It is also suggested that daily eyelid-cleaning routine can help control the symptoms and prevent permanent scarring of the eyelid margins.

More severe cases may require antibiotics that are either applied to the eye or eyelid directly, or taken as tablets.

Without proper eyelid hygiene, conditions resulting in inflammation of the eyelids (such as blepharitis) and dry eyes may develop. Removing oil and debris from the eyelids with Ocusoft Lid Scrub, and, depending on the severity of the condition, possibly employing the use of antibiotics or antibacterial cleansers may help prevent or drastically reduce inflammation.

How to use Ocusoft Lid Scrub Original Pre-Moistened Pads
First, wash and clean hands. Then, fold the OCuSOFT Lid Scrub Pre-Moistened Pad over the index finger, close your eye and gently scrub the eyelid using side-to-side strokes for 30 seconds. Rinse thoroughly with water. Use the opposite side of the same pad and repeat procedure with other eyelid.

When to get medical advice

See your high-street optician (optometrist) if you have persistent symptoms of blepharitis that aren’t being controlled by simple eyelid hygiene measures.

They can examine you to check if the problem is caused by an underlying condition, or may refer you to an eye specialist.

Contact your optometrist or GP immediately if you have any severe symptoms. If this isn’t possible, visit your nearest accident and emergency (A&E) department.

Keep Warm & Happy this Winter with HealthCare4All

First of all, let me take this opportunity to wish everyone a very healthy and happy 2019!!  Even though the days are starting to get slightly longer now, unfortunately its still dark in the mornings and by 4pm,  also the weather here in the UK is predictably going to get worse!

The Met Office issues snow warning as ‘Beast from the East’ returns this month. A SPELL of bitterly cold weather nicknamed the “Beast from the East” could impact Britain with snow and sub-zero temperatures by the end of January.

I suggest taking a look at

The Beurer mp70 paraffin wax bath

  • Conditions rough, dry or stressed skin

  • Adjustable temperature

  • £69.98 with free delivery

There’s a way to go until the warm, sunny weather of spring. It’s hardly surprising that some of us suffer from a winter-associated condition known as Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD).

As the NHS informs, this “winter depression” comes and goes in a seasonal pattern, with symptoms tending to be more apparent and severe during the winter.

The symptoms associated with this seasonal disorder include a persistent low mood, being void of interest or pleasure in everyday activities, moodiness, feeling of guilt, worthlessness and despair, weight gain and craving carbohydrates, feeling reluctant to get out of bed in the morning and sleeping for longer, as well as feelings of lethargy and being tired during the day.

Whilst not fully understood, the causes of SAD are linked to a reduction in sunlight during winter, which can prevent a region of the brain known as the hypothalamus from working properly that has been linked to affecting the production of melatonin and serotonin hormones in the brain.

As the NHS advises if you are suffering from the symptoms associated with SAD you should consider seeing your GP. Your doctor will assess your mental health and ask questions related to your lifestyle, mood, sleeping patterns, eating habits, and other elements that may be affecting your mood.

The NHS lists several treatments for SAD, including making changes to lifestyle, such as exercising regularly, going for counselling, taking antidepressant medication, and light therapy.

SAD Lamps

The theory behind SAD lamps, is that the white light produced by the lamp “effectively replicates sunshine.” By replicating the sun’s rays, users of sad light therapy can find they have a positive response when using SAD light boxes.

When asked which SAD lamp I recommend I always suggest the Beurer TL30 if you are traveling or the ‘all singing and dancing’ Medisana LSC.

Lets take a closer look at both of these…

The reason being that they are not very effective and in order to have any relief you have to catch the cold sore early. Unfortunately once you have the virus you have it for life as Cold Sores recur.

Virulite is different- it works by emitting invisible light which stimulates local immune response. It has NO harmful side effects and unlike the creams it works at any stage of sore.

Virulite has been approved by the NHS some years ago, and is also FDA approved which needed lots of evidence to show it really works.

The only downside about the machine is the cost. At £99.98 & FREE Delivery it is not cheap! However the Virulite is a very high quality product that is recommended by the NHS and proven to be Much more effective than creams for the treatment of cold sores. Also, we feel it is worth the money as the evidence has shown that the device also reduces the recurrence of cold sores.

 

 

How to use the Virulite Cold Sore Machine

The device should ideally be used as soon as the customer feels the “tingle” indicating that a cold sore is about to erupt. Simply hold the device against the affected area and press the activation button.

A visible light indicator lets you know that invisible infra-red light is being delivered to the area. After three minutes a “beep” lets you know that treatment is complete.

Customers are advised to repeat the treatment 12 hours later. If the cold sore progresses, the device should be used four times a day for two more days.

The Evidence

Results of a trial of 60 patients (published in the Journal of Clinical and Experimental Dermatology in 2001)showed that a single application of Virulite CS healed cold sores in an average of 4.3 days, compared with 8.1 days for topical aciclovir applied five times a day.

A second trial, involving 32 patients (published in the same journal in 2006), showed that Virulite CS had a mean healing time of 6.3 days compared with 9.4 days for no treatment. The evidence has shown that the device also reduces the recurrence of cold sores and this is the subject of ongoing research.

The device is ISO13485 compliant (an international quality standard for medical devices) and has CE approval (showing that the device complies with relevant European health and safety legislation) & also FDA approval. No side effects have been reported.

The Reviews

The Testimonials and reviews for the Virulite are amazing, for example this one by Bobby Lall,

Every year I used to dread February as I knew I would get a cold sore. Obviously like most cold sore sufferers you try everything under the sun, excuse the pun. I stumbled across this product by the usual “cold sore cures” via google. So decided to give it a go; February has come and gone and I had 1 potential flare up which I immediately “attacked” with the Virulite, I thought that it was a coincidence\luck when it didn’t flare up at all. I was absolutely chuffed. I felt a tingling again (march 2010) and a tiny blister appeared – done the Virulite and within 1 day it’s gone. BUY THIS PRODUCT IF YOU SUFFER FROM COLD SORES – it’s the best thing I’ve used. Pain free, no mess easy to use. Brilliant Cold Sore Machine

2) HealthCare4All are always searching the globe for the BEST products that are not going to break the bank! We have found an amazing gadget that will rid your children of LICE AND NITS and we have been ITCHING to tell you about it! Its called the LiceTec V Comb. #HealthCare4All are also the UK Distributors!

 

As featured on ITV’s ‘This Morning’ last week!

Why is it so amazing?

Unlike most products on the market today, the LiceTec Comb removes both Lice AND Nits. It is completely safe & extremely easy to use. It works by vacuum, so there is no risk of an electrical current to the user or the patient.

You can actually see the lice and nits getting sucked into the illuminated filter so you KNOW that you have caught them! This eliminates the guesswork you have from other products. It even works on Lice that are resistant to chemicals which is becoming a worldwide problem called SUPER LICE!

It can be used as many times as necessary which a major reason we love it so much. The alternative is using lotions that cost £10- £15 and can only be used once! The LiceTec V comb is only £39.98 from HealthCare4All!

What we also love about the LiceTec V-comb is that after it has sucked the lice and nits into the filter, you simply put the cap on and throw the filter away and you KNOW they have been safely disposed of!

As it is a registered medical device, it is marked with CE & FDA approved to give you peace of mind that you have a quality product!

  • There are no chemicals or allergy causing agents making this ideal for kids with sensitivities

  • There is no need to use shampoo or conditioners as the device is directly applied to dry hair

  • There is no requirement to use smelly or irritating solutions

  • It is THE most effective way of removing lice that I have ever seen – and with my history with battling lice, that is definitely saying something!

  • It is easy to use and operate

  • The built in LED light made it easy to check hair throughout the treatment

If you want to read more about Super Lice,  there has been so much in the press recently. I have listed a few of them below FYI

So, what makes them so special?

Rite Aid Breast Discs

Of course they are safe and extremely easy to use, however they are unlike anything else in the market. They actually promote healing from underneath the pad, they are not just an absorbent or protective pad like existing products. As soon as they are applied there is INSTANT RELIEF of pain whilst simultaneously HEALING the cracked and sore nipple!

Another massive plus point is that they come with 12 PADS whereas other products like Medela only come with 4 pads for roughly the same price!

The feedback I have received is remarkable, just take a look at some of the amazing REVIEWS of course my wife swears by them!

RITE AID BREAST DISCS can save mothers who are about to stop breastfeeding due to pain and sores and as they come in packs of 12 rather than 4 will SAVE you money!

What is the best Peak Flow monitor from HealthCare4All

This week I want to talk about a new range of products at HealthCare4All, called ‘Vitalograph‘.

So what is Peak Flow?

what is the best peak flow monitor
what is the best copd monitor

Very simply it is a lung function test to measure how fast you can exhale. You take a full breath in, then blow out as fast as you can into a small, hand-held plastic tube called a peak flow meter. The measurement taken is called your peak flow.

When is it used?

A GP or asthma nurse might use a peak flow test to help see how open your airways are – they often use this test when you first tell them you’re experiencing symptoms that might be asthma. Your GP or asthma nurse should do a peak flow test at every annual asthma review as part of their routine checks.

This test is also useful for monitoring your asthma using a peak flow diary alongside a symptom diary and your asthma action plan. Take a look at www.asthma.org.uk for some more information.

Peak flow readings will vary depending on your age, your height and whether you’re a man or a woman. This test shows how your individual lung function changes.

Although your peak flow reading may be different in the morning or at night, it’s the pattern your scores make that’s important, rather than one score on its own. Most people have a best peak flow reading so you’ll be able to see when your reading goes up and down.

Keeping track of your peak flow whilst monitoring your symptoms can help you spot when your asthma is getting worse and when you need to use your reliever inhaler (usually blue) or get medical help.
