The Pharmacist Answers Podcast

Your health is probably one of the most important things to you.  Yet it can be one of the most complicated things to understand.  Our bodies are meant to work a certain way, but when they don't, we may never be 100% sure why or what to do about it - even after seeing a healthcare professional.

The Pharmacist Answers Podcast is hosted by Cynthia Hendrix, PharmD.  On the Podcast, you can learn the basics of body parts and organ groups, get a glimpse of how disease processes work, and learn some practical steps to take in your own flesh and blood relationships with healthcare providers.

Everyone's health story is different.  No one is truly a "textbook case".  You need someone who sees your uniqueness and help you gain the knowledge and confidence to have conversations, ask questions, and make decisions that are right for YOU!

*The Podcast started out as live conversations on Periscope.

Three characteristics of people who take charge of their health

  2. Get the whole story.  They find out what I've done, they find out what the doctor's office staff has done, they find out what...

Gastro-Esophageal Reflux Disorder

GERD, or just Reflux.

Myth #1: Having lice means that you're dirty

Truth: Lice like clean hair.  When you shampoo, the soap strips your hair of its natural oil.  So while you think your hair is clean, it is also very grippy.  Thus, lice can hang on better to move around.
Solution: Don't wash your hair - ha!  At least allow your natural oils...
