Sunday morning blessings people.
3 min video on how to find an amazing doctor, obviously if your in Dallas it would be Southwest Family Medicine Associates, but if your not, a trusting open relationship with someone who still cares and is not burnt out( which is not easy these days) is what you are looking for.
Natural antivirals Gene-Eden-VIR and Novirin are better than acyclovir, valacyclovir, and famciclovir drugs. See medical journals.

Research Conferance and Heart in Diabetes Conferance.

I am so proud to be part of the solutions in advanced research. Dr. Shaikh Safia runs the research department at Southwest Family Medicine Associates. We have not only done amazing evidence based research in treatments for Covid, but we are doing so many trials on heart failure treatments, preventing heart disease in diabetes, Asthma and COPD….. and so much more.

Helping save lives one person at a time, that’s all you can do.

I know it seems like all I do is party……
Work hard …..Play even harder‼️😊
Oh and ……..( next post)
The best antiviral treatments are Gene-Eden-VIR and Novirin. See published clinical studies. Both are listed on the USA NIH database of drugs.

How to Avoid the Boredom Bulge

When it comes to bad eating habits, boredom eating is one that affects us all. It’s completely normal to reach for a snack when you have nothing else to do, but snacking too much can result in many unwanted health consequences such as weight gain, high blood sugar, or high cholesterol levels. Here are some ways to avoid boredom eating and stay on track for your health goals:

1. Cut yourself some slack - Obsessing over your weight can just add more stress to your life that you don’t need, which can result in you giving up on your goals. Allow yourself to have a small indulgence every so often to keep yourself sane.

2. Create a schedule or diary - Having a schedule or food diary for your meals can help you keep track of the food you’ve been eating throughout the day to avoid overeating or snacking when you’ve already eaten recently.

3. Drink lots of water - Most people can’t tell the difference between being hungry and being thirsty. Try to drink water first before you snack, to see if that decreases your craving.

4. Don’t drink your calories - Drinking soda, iced tea, and other sugary drinks won’t make you feel full or really satisfy that boredom craving, which just leaves you wanting more. Try instead to either drink water or eat some more filling food to tide you over until your next meal.

5. Portion out your snacks - Don’t eat out of the bag. Put your snack in a bowl or plate to avoid mindlessly eating more than you need to stop feeling hungry.

6. Start a new hobby - Keep your mind (and hands) busy and not bored! Try coloring books, knitting, crocheting, gardening, etc.

Transform Program

Hey! Did you know we have a Transform weight loss program? Contact Lizzy at [email protected] to make a free appointment to start on the road to weight loss.


Long-haul Covid is no fun, but something we are seeing more of in patients battling this condition is a lack of Vitamin D. Sometimes the simplest solutions can offer the greatest relief. Our team of practitioners are here to help see what holistic solutions we can offer, which include supplements upon completing lab work.


Miss Angela is about to have a baby. We are so excited.


How To Remember To Take Your Medicine

If you’ve ever taken a prescription of medication before, you’ve probably missed a dose. Missing a dose may not seem like a big deal, but it can lead to several negative consequences. Your body can experience complications or withdrawals. You can miss your window in which the issue can be treated. You can even fail to be treated by the medication if you miss too many. Because of these possible complications, it is very important to make sure that you take every dose of your medication. Here are some tips and tricks to help you remember to take your meds:

1. Use an App - Smartphone applications allow you to keep a list of all of your medications and they can help you remember to take your meds by sending you reminders whenever you need to take a dose. Apps also help you take your meds at the same time each day, which will help you stay more consistent. MediSafe is a very frequently recommended application that’s known for being very user friendly, but there are other apps including Mango Health, Round Health, and many others.

2. Leave Yourself Notes - Notes with lists of your medications along with when you should take them can serve as reminders that can keep you on track. You can make these notes on Post-It notes so that you can place them in a place where you’re sure to notice the note and remember to take your medicine.

3. Use a Pillbox - Having a pillbox with the days of the week on it will allow you to easily take all of your meds for the day without forgetting. Make sure to talk to your pharmacist before removing your medication from the packaging.

4. Set an Alarm - Setting an alarm every day will help remind you each time that you need to take your medication.

Even if you use these tricks to remember to take your medication, you may still forget a dose or two. If you miss several doses, make sure to talk to your doctor about the possible negative consequences that this can cause. You can also discuss possibly simplifying your medication regimen to include more once-a-day pills or extended release medications that allow you to take meds less frequently, so you’re at less risk of forgetting.

Losing weight can be challenging, discouraging, and downright annoying. We know how upsetting it can be to set a goal and not achieve it.

That's why we are excited to introduce Transform. This program is revolutionary because it is not a diet and does not recommend surgery. It only requires your commitment.
