Part of the job of an online pharmacy is that of efficiency. Our clients expect medications for care, products for preventative care, and they need them immediately. That’s because in today’s world, many people simply don’t have the time to be sick, particularly when it comes to their professional lives. Best case scenario, a sick employee is an inconvenience, while worst case, an illness can spell disaster.

However, we’re big believers in the old saying that, “An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.” We know, finding time to take care of yourself while at the office...

Centuries ago, everybody knew that the world was flat. They knew that the Earth was the absolute center of the universe. They knew that using leeches to suck human blood would cure diseases, and that studying the bumps on the skull told them more about human behavior. As an online pharmacy, we’re first and foremost, scientists. We test hypotheses and, if they are no longer accurate, we get rid of them.

A large part of learning is examining things that everybody knows are true and proving them correct or incorrect. Myths surround everything, and the flu is no exception. Read...

In every office, some things always stay the same. There’s always one person who eats too many donuts. Always one person who doesn’t shut the door correctly during winter, allowing freezing air to come in. There’s always one person during flu season who is annoyingly, irritatingly, not sick. How do these people do it? A desk drawer full of medical supplies?

The fact is, while you can’t stay healthy 100% of the time, there are things you can do to increase the odds of staying healthy longer, and decrease the time spent when you do get sick. Since we’re entering flu...

Fall is less of a season and more of a transition between summer and winter—this is especially true in Northern Colorado. For a few weeks, the trees turn yellow and orange, the temperature is perfectly mild, and flannel is abundant. Then, the first snow hits.

Fall is fleeting, but that doesn’t mean you can stand pat heading into winter. This short season is the perfect time to prepare yourself and your home for the colder months ahead so you can stay healthy, active, and of course, warm.
