What’s New at the Center – September 2013
Price Guarantee on Supplements: the Preventive Medicine Center offers supplements for sale to our patients both for patient convenience and for quality assurance by manufacturers Dr. Erickson has researched. Most of the supplements we carry are pharmaceutical grade and the companies adhere to cGMP (current good manufacturing practices) to ensure quality and purity of their products. No patient is required to purchase supplements at the Center and many patients are continued on their choice of supplements if they are doing well. We realize that some of the products we offer are also sold on the Internet and may be offered at a lower price. Some of these sites are warehouses that are not climate controlled, which could affect the quality of the product. We are happy to match any legitimately advertised price for an identical product.
Product Highlights: ViraClear EPs 7630 is a homeopathic extract of Pelargonium sidoides roots that come from South Africa for treatment of upper respiratory tract infections. ViraClear has been clinically tested in over 9,000 participants including 3,900 children, and has been proven to reduce both the severity and duration of colds, sinus conditions, and bronchial symptoms. In a study involving children and adolescents with acute bronchitis, this product resulted in nearly three times the improvement on day 7. Cost $17 for both the adult formula and cherry-flavored children’s formula.
Flu Shots: Beginning October 1st we will offer intradermal (into the skin) flu shots to those patients requesting vaccination and to our high risk patients who have conditions such as cardiovascular disease, diabetes, or those persons whose occupations put them at a higher risk of exposure such as school teachers or health care professionals. Intradermal vaccination reduces the risk of an adverse reaction using 80% less vaccine, but at the same time provides equal or better protection that traditional intramuscular flu shots. Cost still $20. If you are allergic to eggs or chicken this vaccination is contraindicated.
Office Closed: The Center will be closed Noavember 28th and 29th for Thanksgiving. The Center will also be closed for the Christmas/New Year Holidays beginning early on Tuesday, December 24 through Wednesday, January 1, 2014. We will re-open on Thursday, January 2, 2014 at 9:00AM. If you have an urgent medical problem during these times, please contact your primary care provider or go to an urgent care center.
