Your access to compounded medications is once again at risk because of the Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
Here are the facts:
- Recently, Congress passed the Drug Quality and Security Act.
- This law may allow FDA to regulate interstate compounded medications.
- Your prescription could be affected if it is filled in a state other than your own.
- The FDA is restricting you from necessary compounded medications if you don't live in the same state as the pharmacy you have chosen.
Protect your right to choose where and when you fill your prescription for compounded drugs. Go to bit.ly/wip-fda and give your opinion about FDA's proposed limitations to your right to use compounded medicine.

Do you have bright red, sometimes raised, sometimes flat spots that seem to appear on your skin out of nowhere? Did your doctor tell you they are harmless and people get them as they age?
In his book "Dr. Chi's Fingernail and Tongue Analysis", Dr. Chi says cherry angiomas are created when estrogen attacks peripheral blood vessels, causing an aneurysm. This suggests hormones may be a major factor in cherry angioma formation.
While we don't know for sure what causes cherry angiomas, they have been associated with excess estrogen and copper, bromide toxicity and a vitamin C deficiency leading to weakened blood vessel walls. Cherry angiomas have been observed in pregnancy and with immune system suppression including chemotherapy.
