When you shake hands at an important meeting or hug during a stressful time, the feel-good energy can help us relax and bond, releasing worry and negativity. Friendly, affectionate touch causes our bodies to release oxytocin. Sometimes called the “love hormone,” oxytocin decreases the stress-related hormone cortisol, lowers blood pressure, and increases pain tolerance. This article will cover why you should hug the people you love this Valentine’s Day: research shows physical touch is good for your health!

Bodywork benefits

Friendly touch, whether it’s between cuddling couples, breastfeeding moms and their babies, or even pets and their people, can help us stay healthy. Studies suggest that massage, for example, can slow the heart rate and lower blood pressure—and that’s on top of just plain feeling good. Massage also helps the body release oxytocin, which in addition to the benefits mentioned above, promotes a general sense of well-being and reduces anxiety. Further, getting a massage after strenuous activity can help prevent stiffness and soreness later.

Physical affection and relationships

Being physically affectionate improves how others perceive you by helping you appear more trustworthy. But you don’t want to start grabbing people and hugging them at random, because most people aren’t comfortable with physical affection from strangers. Studies have shown that there’s a relationship between the amount of physical affection romantic partners give each other and their satisfaction with the relationship. And today’s physical affection—whether romantic or platonic—can predict a better mood tomorrow.

Connecting and bonding

Humans are social beings. Although we all have different levels of comfort with touch, we do have a need to feel a sense of connection to the other members of our tribe. Some of that connection comes from conversations, and some comes from communication through touch. Affectionate touch is how romantic partners bond, as well as how parents bond with their children. After all, sometimes everyone can use a warm, reassuring hug from someone dear. And for animal lovers—touching your pets counts, too! 

Add touch to your life

Some people go days or even weeks without any physical contact and miss out on the health-maximizing effects of lowered stress, improved pain management, and a healthier mind and body. Remember that giving healthy touch—like a handshake, a high five, a pat on the back or shoulder, or a hug—benefits you and the recipient. 

Below are some other ways to boost oxytocin through affectionate touch:

  • Pat your pet. Touch doesn’t have to only involve humans. If you don’t have a pet of your own, consider volunteering to walk a neighbor’s dog.
  • Schedule a massage. Find a trusted therapist and book some time to relax. Pro tip: consider further pampering yourself by turning it into a day of rest with a nap afterward.
  • Hug people hello and goodbye. Maximize touch in your day by greeting friends and family with an embrace.
  • Spend time in bed. Whether it’s snuggling or sexual activity, you and your partner will both benefit from some time between the sheets.
  • Get a pedicure. New nail color or not, you’ll feel pampered and relaxed.

How to Relieve Pain with Osteoarthritis Exercises

Osteoarthritis (Degenerative Joint Disease) affects millions of Americans every day, and suffering individuals are looking for ways to relieve their pain. Osteoarthritis pain occurs when the cartilage has worn away on joint ends. When you’re in pain, exercise can be a daunting thought. Research has shown that building up the muscles around the joints can slow the progression of Osteoarthritis. Remember it’s never too late to get moving. Try these easy osteoarthritis exercises to relieve pain.

Water Aerobics

Looking for a beneficial exercise that is low impact and provides strength-building? For those who think that pumping iron or squats and lunges are too daunting, try a water aerobics class. Water aerobics classes often use water weights for extra muscle development. If you already have joint pain, then water aerobics won’t put any extra stress on your body.

Wall Slides

Wall slides mimic sitting in a chair, but with the help of a wall. Press your back firmly against a wall and then lower your body down in a seated position. Once in position, slowly rise up. Try to complete 10 to 12 reps. If this is difficult, you can also try this exercise with an exercise ball.

Hamstring and Calf Stretches

It is important to keep the legs and knees strong. Before any routine, stretching is of the most important thing to remember. For an effective hamstring stretch, sit on the ground, put one leg out in front of you and bend the other leg with the foot level with your knee. Stretch forward as far as you can comfortably go. Switch legs and repeat.

Half Squats

Often times, a full squat seems difficult. If this is the case, try a half squat. This type of squat can be very effective for strengthening the legs and knees. Start in a standing position, squat halfway down to a seated position (your legs should be at a 90-degree angle) and repeat.

Things to Remember

Most weight-bearing exercises will help keep your muscles strong and joints healthy. However, don’t overdo it, especially if you have joint pain. You can try yoga or pilates at your local gym. Remember, keep those muscles moving! Contact Campbell Medical Clinic at (832) 460-6468 to rid your life of Osteoarthritis today. Our doctors can help provide you pain relief and ensure you achieve your wellness goals.

It’s that time of year again! We’re all looking back at 2019 and making a list of the things we want to change for the new year (and new decade!). And most of us resolve to exercise more every year, along with any number of other goals that we may not have reached this year. When we make resolutions, we have the best of intentions—but many of us don’t create habits that last. This article will talk about sticking with your New Year’s resolution to exercise more.

Create Your Action Plan

When you make your New Year’s resolution, be sure you choose goals you can actually attain. If you’ve been a couch potato all year, you might not want to set a goal to run a marathon in February. So, create an action plan that contains the steps you need to get there. If you want to run a marathon, you’ll need to build your endurance over time. Make incremental goals and celebrate your successes along the way. Start out with small goals—15-minutes three times a week, for example—and increase the length and frequency of your workouts over time. When you feel like you can do more, tack on a few extra minutes.

Refuse to Get Discouraged

Successful people know that not every day will be perfect, and they will falter from time to time. Remember that you have choices in each moment and that not everything will go as you have meticulously planned. It’s perfectly normal to take an occasional day off, or rest and heal if you aren’t feeling well, whether it’s a pulled muscle or a fever. Don’t feel ashamed if you skip a day or two! Instead, reaffirm your commitment to making better choices going forward.

Make Small Changes that Add Up

Waking up 30 minutes early to tackle a workout is great, but what if that doesn’t fit within your busy day? Schedule your workouts like you’d schedule meetings and commit to sticking with it. Additionally, you can fit in mini-workouts throughout your day. These may include:

  • Taking the stairs instead of the elevator
  • Parking far from the door
  • Stretching or marching in place while you’re on the phone
  • Walking instead of watching television
  • Doing jumping jacks while the coffee brews

Your New Year’s resolutions are more likely to be successful when you create and make lasting healthy habits. Truly, small changes lead to big rewards and results!

Share Your New Year’s Resolution

When you tell your family members, friends, and colleagues about your resolutions, you might find others who have set goals that align with yours. These are the people who can help hold you accountable and motivate you to succeed. You might also inspire others through your actions! Creating a support network that can help you achieve your goals can be encouraging in both ways—they can count on you just as you count on them. If you find exercise partners, you not only get a support system, you’ll also reap the benefits of positive social experiences and inspiration.

If you are suffering from peripheral neuropathy, you may have come across one or more common neuropathy myths. Let’s separate fact from fiction and discover how you can best overcome this chronic pain condition naturally.

Myth 1: neuropathy is a sign of aging

False. Neuropathy can occur in younger patients, and many older persons never even experience neuropathy. As nerve damage can occur from a wide variety of causes, it would be wise to get numbness or tingling checked out, then find out the origin of the damage and learn how to reverse it.

Myth 2: There is no cure

While you are bound to come across some negative Nancy types of people who say there is no way to cure neuropathy, that is untrue. Neuropathy can be managed and reversed, enabling patients to get back to living a more normal life. In fact, my team at Campbell Medical Clinic has vast experience helping patients with neuropathy overcome it by addressing the cause itself. We have a variety of services tailored to address each patient’s specific condition, and we always maintain the goal of reversing any damage to the body.

Myth 3: All forms of neuropathy are treated the same

False. Depending on the root cause of your symptoms, your treatment options will vary accordingly. Your neuropathy may have been caused by any number of causes:

  • Diabetes
  • Autoimmune diseases
  • Trauma to the nerves
  • Vitamin deficiency
  • Alcohol abuse

Some types of neuropathy are best addressed through a combination of treatments, such as diet and nutrition, vitamin infusions, regenerative cells, platelet-rich plasma injections or mesenchymal cells.

Myth 4: Neuropathy only affects those with diabetes

A large proportion of diabetic patients do suffer from neuropathy; but all neuropathy patients do not have diabetes — not by a long shot! Even certain medications can bring about the painful numbness and tingling you are getting too familiar with. It is worth noting that if your neuropathy does stem from diabetes, I highly recommend calling for a complimentary consultation to learn your different treatment options. Whatever your decision, you don’t want to let the condition worsen.

Myth 5: Nerves cannot regenerate

Fascinatingly, nerve cells can actually repair themselves and even regenerate. Regenerative cells may be able to help your nerves recover from the damage. Another treatment that has been proven to be successful in rebuilding the protective coating on nerves is very high doses of vitamin B12.

Natural neuropathy relief through regenerative medicine

As a leader in regenerative medicine, I want to help you determine your best options for treatment and recovery. You may have heard me on the radio or read my book, Demystifying Stem Cells. Few doctors have as much experience in regenerative medicine as I do, and my team is passionate about bringing our patients relief from neuropathy naturally. Don’t believe the common neuropathy myths.

I encourage you to take charge of your treatment by calling and scheduling a free consultation today.

At the end of the year, we start to get intensely excited and feel especially motivated to change our lives for the better once January 1 rolls around. We begin to pursue many goals, and often find our motivation was artificial and temporary. For many people, we aren’t able to devote the energy our lofty goals deserve, we lose focus, and eventually abandon our resolutions completely. In this article, we’ll look into ways you can be successful when you make a New Year’s resolution to be pain free.

When you have chronic pain, most people look to the medicine cabinet or drugstore. Unfortunately, medications usually only make you pain free temporarily—and they won’t cure what causes the pain or stop it completely. But there are plenty of approaches to try when it comes to your pain management strategies.

Setting Your Resolution

It’s important to create a manageable resolution—in other words, don’t be tempted to set more goals than you can reasonably achieve. Believe it or not, how you word your resolution can help you make it a habit. If you say “I intend to achieve <this goal>” is powerful. It gives you a purpose along with the clear assumption you’ll succeed, as opposed to “I want to achieve <this goal>.” Create a game plan, breaking down your resolution into the steps you’ll take to successfully tackle each of the milestones along the way. 

If you find something that doesn’t work, try a different approach with your resolution firmly in mind. Don’t beat yourself up if you don’t make considerable progress each day. You’re only human, and we all have days where we’re not at our best. For example, someone who resolves to exercise daily might want to rest instead while they have the flu. These things happen, so be prepared.

Tips for a Pain-Free New Year

It’s possible that you don’t have to live with chronic pain, relying on pills for the rest of your life. We’ve put together some drug-free options to help you remain pain-free. 

  • Massage. From deep tissue work to more gentle techniques, massage can help you relax. Its therapeutic benefits include relaxing muscles and sore tissues as well as easing chronic pain. 
  • Physical Therapy. You’ll learn how to gently and effectively move and stretch your muscles while working to strengthen your joints. Physical therapy can help the cause of your pain and may include exercises, stretching, or even water therapy that works your muscles in a pool.
  • Acupuncture. This is one of the world’s oldest pain management techniques. This Chinese practice uses tiny needles placed in specific spots on your body. Acupuncture promotes circulation, wound healing, and pain modulation. 
  • Hot and Cold Therapy. Heat—from a heating pad, a hot bath, or other source—boosts blood flow and allows muscles to relax. Cold—from ice or a cold pack—slows circulation and reduces swelling, slowing the body’s ability to send pain messages.
  • TENS Treatment. Transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation (TENS) involves attaching small devices to the painful area. Electricity stimulates the nerves in the area where the pain is localized and reduces pain.

Therapy for the Mind. Our mental health affects our physical health. When you’re anxious, depressed, or stressed, it can manifest in physical pain, or at the very least might make you hyper-focused on your pain. Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) can teach you how to better manage your thoughts and emotions along with your body’s physical response. Biofeedback is another method that helps you learn how to control your body’s reaction to pain, and the deep relaxation of hypnosis can also help keep you pain free.

Headaches are a fairly common malady—everyone gets them from time to time. And for many people, we get a headache and take a painkiller. Whether it’s aspirin, acetaminophen, naproxen, ibuprofen, or another medicine, these painkillers can work well for a headache—if you don’t use them too often. Let’s take a look at why you might want to rethink popping a painkiller every time you get a headache:

Medication overuse 

Using too much pain medicine is easy to do. But this can make your headache worse and cause other problems as well. If you regularly take painkillers for headaches, they may become less useful, and you may also have headaches more often. Whether or not you suffer from frequent, severe headaches or just the occasional tension headache, you should try to limit the use of over-the-counter and prescription drugs.

Non-prescription analgesics can have dangerous side effects; if you take these drugs too often, they can cause serious side effects. For example, if you regularly take acetaminophen (paracetamol) for several days, you could damage your liver. Rarely, these drugs can also cause kidney problems. Aspirin and ibuprofen sometimes cause gastric bleeding. 

An additional problem you may encounter if you take pain relievers regularly is a “medication overuse headache,” also known as a “rebound headache.” This happens when pain medicine becomes less effective and your headache comes back as soon as the medicine wears off. If you choose to take a pain reliever, always follow the dosage recommendations on the label.

When to see a doctor

We often think of headaches as a minor ailment, easily treated at home. But according to the Mayo Clinic, there are times when you should seek immediate medical care. These include:

  • Sudden, severe headache
  • A headache along with a fever, stiff neck, rash, confusion, seizure, double vision, weakness, numbness or difficulty speaking
  • A headache after a head injury
  • The headache increases in severity despite rest and pain medication
  • A headache along with shortness of breath
  • You have a headache when you’re upright that is relieved by lying flat

Alternative headache remedies

It’s a good idea to learn what triggers your headaches, because lifestyle changes can help some people with severe headaches. Record every headache, and keep in mind the possible triggers: food, drinks, sleep patterns, or other things that cause headaches.

You may be able to prevent or reduce headaches if you:

  • Reduce stress through biological feedback, meditation, relaxation, etc.
  • Minimize alcohol consumption
  • Regularly get enough sleep
  • Eat regular meals
  • Eliminate as many triggers as possible; for example, darken the room to reduce the effects of bright light
  • Stay hydrated—it’s a good idea to drink a full glass of water when you first feel a headache coming
  • Get some exercise; physical activity releases endorphins (pain-blocking chemicals)
  • Reduce screen time—computers, TV, tablets, and mobile phones can cause eye strain, which can also trigger headaches, so take a 20 second break and look at something 20 feet away every 20 minutes

Conclusion

Some people—especially those with migraines— may need headache treatment for extended periods of time. Because this can mean years or even decades, these individuals should take addictive prescription medications only if safer treatment does not work. If you are one of these people, talk with your doctor about whether you really need to take addictive drugs, and ask your doctor how to avoid excessive use and addiction. Choose pain relieving medicines that have proven to be effective. There are many options available, so you and your doctor should come up with a treatment plan that’s based on your medical history. 

Lower back pain and hip pain are very common among Americans; in fact, more than 26 million people are affected by these conditions; but pain medications and surgery are not your only options, and they should not be your first choices for pain relief. First, try some easy stretches as natural pain relief options for back and hip pain.

Whether you are experiencing back pain or hip pain from an injury, or as a result of years spent sitting behind a computer, the result can be chronic pain. Your muscles both weaken and get painfully tight; but gentle stretches can help ease the discomfort.

One of the hip flexor muscles is actually connected to the spine. This explains why hip tightness can make your back feel out of whack. With the hips and the back being interdependent, many of these stretches benefit both areas at once.

Lower Back Pain Stretches

Wide-legged forward fold:

A great back stretch, the wide-legged forward fold allows your glutes, hamstrings and both upper and lower back to get some relief. Begin by standing with your feet wider than hip-width, with your toes pointed forwards. Start to lean forward, bringing your chest close to your legs and your hands on the ground. Keep your knees bent while the weight shifts down in your body and your muscles release. Remain in this pose for 30 second before rolling up very slowly.

Seated twist:

A classic in back pain stretches, the seated twist offers respite to many common low back pain conditions. Sit down on the floor with your feet on the ground and your knees bent. Pull your right foot in near your rear end. Lift your left leg over the right to bring your left foot over the top of your right knee, forming an arch over the right leg. From there you can put your hands behind your hips to stabilize yourself, and take deep breaths while you sit tall and lengthen your back. As you exhale, begin twisting towards the left, wrapping your right arm around the front of your left leg. Look straight ahead or over your left shoulder as you hold for 30 seconds and untwist on an inhale before switching sides.

Child’s pose:

A beginner’s pose in yoga, this calming stretch can relieve tension in the hips and lower back via the glutes.

Start by getting on your hands and knees on a comfortable surface, like a rug or mat, press your toes together and spread your knees. Now sit on your heels and begin to move your hands forward until your upper body is flat against the ground, too, and your arms are straight out in front of you. Try to relax in this position, with your ears away from your shoulders. You’ll want to hold the child’s pose for 30 seconds.

Hip Pain Stretches

Dead bug (also called the happy baby):

Lie down on your back and bend your knees to bring them toward your chest. Your feet should be extended above your knees; your arms can reach to hold onto your knees or ankles, if possible. Ensure that your lower back stays on the floor for this stretch, and rock gently from side to side for 30 seconds.

Runner’s lunge:

Aimed at stretching the legs, abs and hips, this pose should be held for 30 seconds on each side. Start by getting on your hands and knees, then bring one foot forward, outside of your hand (i.e., the left foot outside of the left hand). Stretch the foot out a little farther so your ankle is positioned slightly more forward than your knee. The other knee should be down against the ground. Keep your hands pressed to the ground, shoulder width apart, and press your hips so you feel the stretch working through the muscles there. Switch sides and repeat.

Adductor opener:

A great hip stretch, the adductor opener should be held for 30 seconds. Start by standing with your feet wide apart, with your heels facing in and your toes facing out at a 45-degree angle. Place your hands on your inner thighs, squat, hold and press the thighs open until you feel the stretch.

Other Natural Pain Relief Options

Stretches for back pain and hip pain are helpful, but many pain sufferers find they may need more relief than stretches alone can provide. Through regenerative medicine, our skilled team of healthcare professionals can get to the root of your lower back pain and help repair it from the inside out through treatments like platelet rich plasma (PRP injections), regenerative cells and mesenchymal cells. Call our office for a consultation today.

Holiday travel can be fun, exciting, and stressful. But being stuck in the same place, in the same position for hours on end can also mean stiff joints and a variety of aches and pains. Whether you’re flying or driving, sitting in the same position for extended periods of time isn’t going to do your body any favors. 

Crowded seating in planes, trains, buses, or cars can mean your knees touch the seat in front of you—especially if you’re tall. Plus, if you’re in a middle or window seat, you might be reluctant to move around to avoid all the commotion of asking strangers to get up for you. 

Fortunately, there are some things you can to do help prevent discomfort and even ease it—so you can enjoy your trip instead of feeling sore and achy. Here are our favorite three tricks for preventing stiff joints while traveling.

Your neck and upper back

Whether you’re sitting on the sofa or in a crowded airplane seat, most of us tend to slouch over time—and if you’re slouched for hours, you’re sure to feel it later. Basically, if you aren’t using the full range of motion in your joints, you start to lose it—even temporarily when you sit for a long time. Your best bet is to do everything you can to prevent it. That means doing some stretches every half hour to hour or so. 

For your upper body, roll your head in circles several times in each direction, move your head and neck to look up and down, left and right. Stretches like those will help your neck. To stretch your upper back, you can stay seated. If your seatmates aren’t too close, reach your hands overhead and bend from side to side at the waist. If you are in close quarters, try crossing your arms, holding your opposite shoulders, and bending side to side as far as you can. Stretches like these can help the upper part of your spine to stay mobile.

Your lower back and hips

Narrow plane and car seats can render your core strength inactive. Our bodies were not designed to remain in cramped positions for several hours running. And putting your spine and the muscles that support it under this type of stressful condition can result in lower back pain, because your core isn’t engaged. The seated position puts your hip flexors in a shortened and flexed situation that increases muscle tension.

To help prevent stiffness and soreness, stand up and walk around as often as you reasonably can. The best stretch for your lower back and hips is to grab one knee with clasped hands and pull your knee to your chest. Keep your bottom leg extended straight, hold the position for a few seconds, and alternate sides.

Your glutes and legs

If you have an achy rear, your body is signaling that it’s not happy with staying seated for so long. You’ll want to stand on one leg and bend forward, so your fingers reach toward your knee or ankle (don’t overdo it). Extend your non-standing leg slightly behind you (be sure to pay attention to what’s going on around you, so you don’t kick anyone!). Alternate legs, and walk as many steps as you can—after all, walking is one of the best ways we can encourage blood flow and improve circulation.

Pro Tips

Most of us travel with a mobile phone, tablet, or laptop. Set yourself some reminders to stretch periodically!

If you’re able to choose your seat when making your travel arrangements, book an aisle seat. It’ll be easier for you to get up and move without disturbing your fellow travelers.

Take shorter flights, if you know you’re prone to soreness. It may take longer for you to reach your destination, but you will have more opportunities to move around.

Consider driving, if your destination makes it possible. By driving, you can stop to walk around and stretch whenever you need to.

Keep these tips in mind, and enjoy your travels!

The holiday season is all about celebrating, togetherness, and indulging—but doing so in moderation. We’re heading into the holiday months starting with Halloween through New Year’s. That’s nearly twelve weeks of parties full of hors d’oeuvres, treats, and alcohol. Those calories add up fast, and it’s not always so easy to burn them off again.

1 – Health Goals

Plan your weekly food intake and allow some treats into that plan. Create a tradeoff: for example, allow yourself two cookies at every holiday party but avoid the alcohol. Focus on specific attainable goals and follow through rather than a potentially harmful mindset of dropping two sizes by Valentine’s Day. 

2 – Routine

Create and stick to a regular routine of exercise and sleep as part of your health goals. Getting enough sleep has also been associated with less weight gain. Practice good sleep hygiene, like turning off electronics in the bedroom and avoiding bingeing at night. It can be tempting to cozy up and hibernate the entire time you are off from work during the holidays, and, but stick to your routines as mentioned in No. 1, and continue to exercise every day. Making exercise a daily habit won’t even feel like a chore any longer, but rather a built-in part of your day. Wearable fitness trackers are a great way to get motivated.

3 – Alcohol

So many choices: wassail, martinis, wine, rumchata, spiked eggnog … they all sound delicious, but they have little to no nutritional value and contribute to excess weight gain. Instead, try having a club soda with a lime twist to help cut calories and remain well hydrated.

4 – Portion Control

Eat a small, healthy meal before party time to help you from unconsciously snacking all night. Something full of fiber or protein are solid options that will keep you fuller for longer and help maintain a healthy weight because high protein diets are associated with greater satiety. Great options include: roasted chicken or turkey, hummus with vegetables, quinoa, lentils, or beans.

5 – Careful Indulgence

Allow yourself a small portion of something you’re craving can prevent overindulging later. But if you find you’re still craving a few more bites of your favorites, daydreaming about pleasant activities or distracting yourself with just about any activity can reduce the intensity of food cravings.

Choose the smaller salad plate instead of a tray-like one f you want to try out the scintillating mac and cheese or other rich holiday dish. Using smaller plates can actually make us feel fuller with less food, because the brain associates a big white space on the plate with less food.

6 – Don’t Stress

Trying not to overstress during the holidays can feel like exercise on its own. Unfortunately, a lot of stress can trigger increased eating and cravings, especially for sugary carbohydrates. Try to avoid emotional eating. Instead, nix the stress and allow yourself to be more present in your daily life through yoga, deep breathing, massage therapy, and meditation. Stay focused during the holidays and stick to your daily routines so that you don’t lose track of your health goals.

7 – Positive Outlook

Do what you can to remain positive. Just get back on track the next day if a bad one comes along. Don’t punish yourself for indulging or demonize certain foods or punish yourself for indulgences. Remind yourself that you can control your eating by making healthy choices and that you’re proud of achieving your goals for the day. This can reframe your relationship with food—positive expectations are associated with weight loss. While it may feel silly at times, try telling yourself at least one positive affirmation per day. A healthy mind leads to other healthy habits.

Have you heard of Rene Quinton? I honestly can’t believe I’ve been a doctor this long without hearing his name. This man saved thousands of lives in France and Europe by using seawater called Quinton Water.

Rene Quinton was a French physiologist who discovered that marine water from a certain part of the ocean had almost identical salt and mineral composition as human plasma. He perfected the filtration technique by cold processing this marine water and cured diseases in thousands of people. He also experimented on animal models and replace dog’s plasma with Quinton water and the dog recovered without any issue within a day. At the time when many people were dying from infections, sepsis, he saved thousands of lives using this marine water. There also have been documented cases for cancer, leukemia and multiple sclerosis.

There are two types of concentration for Quinton water: Hypertonic and Isotonic.

Hypertonic solution is the pure unaltered form of ocean water. It has all the trace minerals and salts in it’s purest, most natural form. It is mineralizing and has an almost immediate invigorating effect. I drink a shot of it in the morning instead of coffee, and when I feel the afternoon energy dip coming in, I take a shot of it. It has also been essential when I travel by air, as it takes much of travel fatigue away.

The isotonic solution has the mineral and salt concentration most identical to blood plasma. Because of it, it is also called Quinton Plasma. Quinton plasma can also be injected subcutaneously, or intravenously as well. For a while, I was taking care of a church friend who was diagnosed with stage 4 pancreatic cancer. Since adding Quinton Water to her treatment, she had more energy and a better appetite.

You can read more about this amazing water here.

Quinton Water comes in 30, 10ml vials which I use for traveling and also in 1-liter glass jars which is far more economical. Vials are $45 and a 1-liter jar is $95. If you’d like to pick up from the office, call 813-463-6279.
