  • Allergies are caused when a foreign object somehow enters the body. It could be either as a sting piercing the skin or an allergen entering through the mouth or nose. The bodies normal response is to react by alerting and activating cells in the body called mast cells. The mast cells in the body produce what is called histamine. The histamine goes about fighting the allergen and in the process produces symptoms such as sneezing, watery eyes, rashes or sometimes more complicated reaction such as shortness of breath all as a result of the allergen.  When mast cells detect a substance that triggers an allergic reaction (an allergen), they release histamine and other chemicals into the bloodstream. Histamine makes the blood vessels expand and the surrounding skin itchy and swollen. It can also create a build-up of mucus in the airways, which become narrower. Antihistamines are medication which as the word implies working against the mast cells release of histamine. After the administration of antihistamines, histamine release is blocked and the symptoms that you usually see from an allergy are reversed.

  • Antibiotic Support is necessary for your general well being simply because Antibiotics kill the good bacteria flora while trying to kill the infective bacteria. When this happens the intestinal flora balance gets out of whack. Fungi and yeasts which are kept at bay by the good bacteria start to proliferate causing fungal infections such as oral thrush, vaginal thrush and other fungal infections. Antibiotic support is generally in the form of probiotics that replaces human gastrointestinal microbiota, also known as gut flora or gut microbiota. Other Antibiotic support can be in the form of oral thrush solution or cream or antifungal vaginal thrush creams.

  • Probably one of the most pleasurable parts of infant care happens during the sensitive time in the first hours and days after birth when parents make a deep connection with their infant. Physical closeness can promote an emotional connection.

    For infants, the attachment contributes to their emotional growth, which also affects their development in other areas, such as physical growth. Another way to think of bonding is "falling in love" with your baby. Children thrive from having a parent or other adult in their life who loves them unconditionally.

    Begin bonding by cradling your baby and gently stroking him or her in different patterns. Both you and your partner can also take the opportunity to be "skin-to-skin," holding your newborn against your own skin while feeding or cradling.

  • As the years pass by the bones and the joints of the body that carry an average adult for years turning onto decades and then half a century begins to take its toll. A 50-year-old mechanical device would need more servicing as it ages. A human body which has been battered in the sports field, workplace and normal everyday life such as gardening or housework need regular care as well. The vital ingredients that keep a joint well oiled when young start diminishing and as a result, the bones start rubbing each other causing inflammatory conditions such as arthritis and osteoarthritis. Bones that are made primarily from Calcium and other minerals start losing calcium to other parts of the body which needs calcium for its upkeep. The ready supply of Calcium in the bones gives way to other parts of the body needing calcium more. As a result, our bones tend to become brittle as we age resulting in fractures. Calcium supplements and Glucosamine and Chondroitin for the joints are essential for giving the support that Bones and Joints need from the battering they get,

  • Every woman is affected by menopause in some way - either they experience symptoms or other physical changes.

    Menopause occurs when you have not had a menstrual period for 12 months. Menopause is a natural part of life occurring at around age 51 years but can also happen for other reasons.

    The average age of menopause is 51 years but you can enter menopause earlier. Hormonal changes cause menopausal symptoms Most women will have some symptoms most women have symptoms for 5 to 10 years.
    Hormone therapy is the most effective therapy for hot flashes, but there are other treatment options. Non-hormonal treatments include modifying your diet, lifestyle changes, and over-the-counter therapies.

    Hormone therapy is the most effective therapy for hot flashes. However, other non-hormonal options are available for women who are suffering from symptoms but are not yet ready to consider hormone therapy. Some women are not appropriate candidates for hormone therapy, such as those that have been recently treated for breast cancer. It is important to remember that when used appropriately, hormone therapy can be a safe and effective option for many women. Here we will review non-hormonal treatment options for women.

    Reducing the temperature in a room, dressing in layers, and the use of a fan while asleep can be effective ways to help deal with troublesome hot flashes. Women who are overweight tend to have more bothersome hot flashes, therefore weight loss can be helpful. 

  • The average menstrual cycle is 28-35 days. Ovulation usually happens between days 11 and 21 of your cycle. A hormone called luteinizing hormone (LH) surges, triggering the release of the egg that's most ripe. At the same time, your cervical mucus becomes more slippery to help sperm make their way to the egg.

    Women are born with about 1 million to 2 million eggs but release only 300 to 400 through ovulation during their lifetimes. Usually, you release just one each month. The egg travels along with one of the two fallopian tubes that connect your ovaries to your uterus. If the timing is right, sperm may fertilize it on its way to the uterus. If fertilization doesn't happen within 24 hours of the egg leaving the ovary, the egg dissolves. Sperm can live for about 3 to 5 days, so knowing when you are ovulating can help you and your partner plan sex for when you're most likely to conceive.

    Generally, the best chance of pregnancy is when sex happens 1-2 days before ovulation. If you have a regular 28-day cycle, count back 14 days from when you expect your next period to start. Plan on having sex every other day around that time -- say, days 12 and 14.  Keep in mind that having sex every day may lower a man's sperm count. Your cycle may be longer or shorter, so an online ovulation calculator may help you figure out the likely day.

    After your body releases an egg, the hormone progesterone kicks in to build and maintain the lining of the uterus. It makes your body temperature go up slightly. So taking your temperature with a basal thermometer every morning before you get out of bed can help you figure out if you ovulated. You can buy these thermometers at the drugstore. They're inexpensive, but they aren't as accurate as other ways of tracking ovulation.

    How Home Pregnancy Tests Work

    Home pregnancy tests check your urine for the "pregnancy hormone," called hCG, that your body makes once a fertilized egg implants in your uterus. Some of these tests may be able to tell if you're pregnant as early as 5 days before your first missed period.

  • Breast milk is the perfect food for your baby and breastfeeding is perfect for you too. 

    Breast milk is the perfect food for your baby because:

    • it’s all that your baby needs to eat and drink for about the first 6 months
    • it helps to protect your baby against colds, tummy bugs, infections and allergies. It also helps to protect your baby from dying suddenly in their sleep
    • breastfeeding helps your baby to feel safe and secure.

    Whilst it’s widely acknowledged that breastfeeding is the best way of feeding your baby, some women are unable to successfully breastfeed. For example, after breast surgery, or due to being very anaemic – and some women simply do not want to breastfeed.

    Although the number of breastfed babies continues to increase in New Zealand every year, around 1/5th of all babies are exclusively bottle-fed by 3 months.

  • Muscles are attached to bones by tendons and help them to move. When a muscle contracts (bunches up), it gets shorter and so pulls on the bone it is attached to. When a muscle relaxes, it goes back to its normal size. Muscles can only pull and cannot push. Therefore muscles have to work in pairs to move a joint. One muscle will contract and pull a joint one way and another muscle will contract and pull it the other.

    Muscle weakness is commonly due to lack of exercise, ageing, muscle injury or pregnancy. It can also occur with long-term conditions such as diabetes or heart disease. There are many other possible causes, which include stroke, multiple sclerosis, depression, fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue syndrome (ME)

    At Corner Pharmacy our staff are trained to advise you of the choices and the supplements to take when your muscle strength starts to deteriorate.

  • Beautiful nails require effort. Neglected nails can not only be embarrassing but can pose health problems especially for those suffering from diabetes and other vascular ailments.

  • Every Health Professional has an opinion. Some will say that Vitamins and Supplements are a waste of money while others will say that they can't function without their daily doses of vitamins and supplements. It's only when you stop taking a particular supplement and the subsequent feeling of unwell that you realize that you need these supplements to have you functioning at 100%.  In any case, you have to listen to your body and if after stopping a supplement you feel inadequate then, by all means, take what is necessary. We must remember that before modern medicine human beings ate a host of herbs and healthy food to maintain well being. Science has allowed us to make these supplements available at your fingertip.

    Listen and read comments downgrading each other with scepticism. Its is always best to read up about vitamins and supplements before abandoning something that could be immensely beneficial to you. 

    We  at Corner Pharmacy advice you to talk to us about Vitamins and Supplements as we are adequately trained in both modern medicine as well as Vitamins and Supplements and have a balanced opinion instead of a one-sided view
