Two Simple Ways to Enhance Your Well-being Alongside Medication

The Importance of Timely Antibiotic Intervention

“Never go to a doctor whose office plants have died.”
~ Erma Bombeck, humorist and author.

Laughter is said to be the best ‘chronic prescription’ that our Jase Daily service aims to provide. If only. But combining laughter, positive thoughts, and having a purpose in life comes pretty darn close.

We help you get up to a 12-month supply of your medicines. Now, we would like to help you even more by giving you two ideas to combine with your medicines to help you feel even better mentally and physically.

Time is wasting, so let’s get to ‘em.

1. We are more than what we eat: We are also what we think!

Because our thoughts also made us who we are today. So, if you don’t like who you are, and especially how you feel, change your thoughts (“affirmations”). Write down your most negative, crappy, thoughts, and then write underneath each one a positive spin that is realistic and that you can believe.

Doing this is also a great way to replace bad habits with good ones because our thoughts are what hold us back and veers us off the straight and narrow.

Follow these steps before you start thinking yourself to the kind of person you want to be:

A. Do not force it, or overdo it. It’s okay to give yourself permission to mess up now and then. You are a human, not a robot.

B. Make sure they are believable . . . none of those lame unrealistic positive thoughts you read out there.

C. Before you say that you are borderline depressed, or that you are in a funk, first make sure that you are not around the wrong kind of people. You want to be around people who are positive, and make you feel good.

2. Move your body: Go for a walk!

You don’t need to be given a suggestion to go for a walk. That’s just common sense. You know it’s one of the best ways to feel better overall. But the following is a suggestion to get you out there. Because there are days when you just can’t get into gear.

Whenever you tell yourself something like, I don’t feel like it, or you come up with some excuse, tell yourself that you will walk just ten minutes. Then do it. Just go out that door.

What will usually happen is that you will finish what you started, once you get started.

This works, in most cases, even with housework. Do a little something for just a few minutes, like dusting, and you land up doing more! Okay, usually.

Have a Sense of Accomplishment

Very few things can make us feel better than having a sense of accomplishment. You are doing things in your life to feel better, to do better, to be better. It isn’t just about taking prescription medicines, eating right, and going for walks.

Why Do People Want a 12-Month Supply of Their Prescription Medications?

The Importance of Timely Antibiotic Intervention

There are a lot of things we like to stock up on: pressure-canned fruits and vegetables, canned goods at the grocery store. (“Two for a dollar?! I need another cart!”), soaps and cleaners . . .

And toilet paper! Oh yes!

But stock up on prescription medicines for months on end?

Well, that’s what some people are doing. A lot of you who are reading this are doing it. In fact, at the risk of bragging, we are proud to state that we have over 900 five-star Google reviews.

That’s not bad at all for a prescription supply service that helps those in need to get up to a 12-month supply of their prescription medication. If you haven’t already check out Jase Daily.

But if you are new here – why are people doing this?

It may seem odd to you that some people do this, but it makes perfect sense in a not so perfect world. The need to have emergency prescription medicines on hand, for example, is a permanent item on their worry list.

That’s for a good reason. There has been, and still are, shortages of some medicines. There are 309 ongoing drug shortages in the US. The highest in nearly a decade. (References marked 1 and 2 at the end of the article.)

It’s not just worrisome, it’s downright scary.

The other reasons listed below are probably what you have been thinking about:

Living in Hurricane-Prone States

  • There are over 60 million people living in hurricane-prone states. If you are one of them, you’ve probably seen the empty shelves in the grocery stores. Although it is frustrating, there is an instinct in us to gather all the resources we can for survival. That includes prescription medicines.

Extended Travel

  • Traveling for weeks on end is another reason for wanting more of their medicines at hand. It’s having that peace of mind when traveling outside our country.

The Possibility of Another Virus Coming Into Our Homes Uninvited

  • We just never know. One day we wake up, turn on the news, and …
    But there has been so, so, so much talk on the coronavirus that it’s like beating a dead horse, so let’s just leave it at that, and move on.

No Explanation. They Just Want to Be Prepared

  • Then there are those who can’t explain why they want a reserve. It’s just having that peace of mind in knowing that they have extra at their reach.

If you think about it, under certain circumstances, it is reasonable to want to have the right meds the moment you need them. Because we don’t know what tomorrow holds. 

It can be discouraging when a doctor gives you that look, the roll of the eyes, when you tell them you would like to have a bigger supply of your meds.

You know what we mean?

You might have felt like walking on eggshells when asking. The atmosphere in the office changed. You felt like an addict asking for more medicine. It can be downright stressful.

Although some doctors will give up to a sixty-day supply, many, many more will not. It can be discouraging when a doctor gives you that look, the roll of the eyes, when you tell them that you would like more of your meds for reserve. It can be a bit of a sticky situation asking them for more. Quite often it’s just a matter of being straightforward and honest with the doctors, along with knowing and understanding what they can and cannot do.

Whatever reason you may have for wanting up to a 12-month supply, we can help.

“Should I feel shame or guilt for wanting to do this?”

Absolutely, positively no! Many of you are on multiple prescriptions due to heredity alone. You can’t help it. That’s just the way it is. You take it one day at a time, the best way you can.

We’d like you to take those days with us, one day at a time.

If you have questions, we’ll try to have the answers for you.

Pediatric Pain: Remedies and Treatments

Safe Remedies and Treatments to Help Manage Your Child’s Pain

Studies have shown that 40% of adolescents and children complain of pain that occurs at least once a week. Chronic pain also affects 15% to 20% of children. When your child’s pain is left untreated, it can cause them to be more sensitive to pain as they age.

Below are safe remedies and treatments to help manage your child’s pain:

Nonprescription (Over-the-Counter) Pain Medicine

Medicine such as ibuprofen (Motrin or Advil) treats pain and fever. Since ibuprofen is also an anti-inflammatory medicine, it’s a good option when managing pain in injuries with swelling.

Ibuprofen is available in liquid form for children. Other variations include tablets and chewable tablets. When you give such medication to your child for pain, remember these things for safety:

  • Check the expiration date.
  • Ensure that your child is not taking other medications with ibuprofen in them. Overdosing on this drug can damage the intestines or stomach, so talk to your doctor before giving your child more of this medicine.
  • Give your child a dose from the cup, syringe, and dropper that came with the product, and follow the recommended dosage.
  • Don’t give your child more than four doses of ibuprofen in 24 hours.

Suppose your child spits up a dose of ibuprofen without swallowing it. Let them calm down before giving them the same dose again.

You can also use acetaminophen (Tylenol) to manage your child’s pain. It’s a nonaspirin pain reliever that soothes common aches and discomfort. Unfortunately, this drug doesn’t help with inflammation.

Acetaminophen is a safe option for children since it doesn’t cause stomach issues, unlike other medications.

Still, it’s advisable to talk to a pediatrician before giving your child any pain medication or antibiotics.

Nonpharmacological Pain Management

This type of pain management doesn’t require medicines. Instead, it uses methods to alter thinking and focus to reduce pain. Here are some examples:

  • Relaxation: You can guide your child through relaxation exercises, such as stretching and deep breathing, to reduce pain.
  • Imagery: Use an imaginary mental image of sound, sight, smell, feeling, and taste to shift your child’s attention away from the pain. The image should be a pleasant one.

Still, it’s necessary to talk with a medical expert regarding safe treatments when managing your child’s pain.

How to Know When Your Child Is in Pain

Some pain, like a bad cut, is easier to see and understand. However, there is pain caused by things you can’t see, such as joint pains and headaches.

Many children show they’re in pain through crying. Still, there are other ways children may react. For instance, infants and toddlers may act fussy. They may not move as much and become quieter than usual.

Other common signs of pain in children include the child exhibiting the following:

  • Fever
  • Heavy sweating
  • Fast heartbeat and breathing
  • Holds a painful part of their body
  • Holds hands over ears to keep out noise
  • Talks about what hurts

You know your child. If you observe, listen closely, and consider how they usually behave, you can instantly tell when something’s wrong. Unfortunately, assessing and treating your child’s pain may be difficult if they can’t describe their feelings.

Suppose your child is old enough to talk. Ask them to point to the part of their body where it hurts. You may also help them describe their discomfort by going over the list of words that express pain, such as “aching,” “itchy,” “sore,” and “burning.”

Nonverbal pain expressions, such as frowning, gasping, and wincing, can also give you clues about your child’s discomfort.

Tips to Give Your Child Medicine When They Don’t Like It

You can’t blame your child if they refuse to take medications. They may have a bad experience with a bad-tasting antibiotic, so expect some protesting from your kid when given medicine.

Remember that young children don’t understand the urgency of taking medication. So forcing them to take medicine may only lead to choking or vomiting. It’s also important to learn effective strategies for managing your child’s health.   

Below are some helpful tips to give your child medicine when they don’t like it:

1.  Use a Straw

Drinking through a straw can distract your child as it takes the focus away from swallowing their medicine. Using a straw can also create a solid force to flush the medication down your child’s throat.

2.  Use a Plastic Medication Syringe or Dropper

Some young children become cooperative when you let them hold the syringe. If this technique works for your child, have them place the syringe in their mouth. Then all you need to do is to press down the plunger to administer the medicine.

3.  Establish a Schedule

Follow a consistent medicine schedule that fits within the different set times you’ve established for other daily routines. When your child has a fixed medicine time, taking their medication won’t surprise them.

4.  Ask Your Pharmacist to Recommend a Special Flavor of Your Child’s Medicine

Adding flavors such as strawberry, bubblegum, and banana is an inexpensive way to improve your child’s cooperation when taking their medicine, especially if they choose the flavor.

5.  Talk With Your Child About the Importance of Taking Medicine

Your child must understand why they have to take medicine and what could happen if they don’t take it. Talk about the importance of taking medicine in a way that doesn’t make your child feel like they’re letting you down.
