In short, NO!!! While dogs and cats are mammals and therefore have many similarities to people, their tolerance of drugs often varies dramatically from humans. Even in small amounts, over-the-counter pain medications, like non-steroidal anti-inflammatory (NSAID) drugs such as Advil, can be toxic and even deadly to your pet. Tylenol is particularly dangerous for cats. Medications formulated specifically for dogs and cats are sometimes more expensive because generic equivalents are not available, but they entail much less risk to your pet. NEVER give medication to your pet, over-the-counter or otherwise, before asking your veterinarian if it’s okay. As the old adage goes, it’s better to be safe than sorry!

Difficulty in going to sleep and staying asleep is a major problem for millions of Americans. A large portion of these sleepy people are self induced and self perpetuating. The attitude that we can catch up on our sleep is prevalent in our society, but catching up is not really possible. Yes, additional sleep on the weekend may allow us to feel rested but the damage from not sleeping regularly accumulates. Recent studies have shown that lack of sleep causes damage to the deep tissues (endothelium) of the body particularly the brain and blood vessels leading to vascular disease, heart disease, increased cholesterol levels, decreased immunity, and impairment of thought process. Insomnia leads to severe impairment in quality of life as well as impaired physical and mental conditions. Fatigue-related injuries such as traffic accidents are a major cost to society. There are more traffic deaths as a result of sleepy drivers than deaths from all drunk drivers.
A Zyto Full-Body Health Scan will show you what is going on with your body. Specific tests within the scan can be run to determine specifically what’s stressing your body. There are any number of reasons why people get headaches. Many times when you get headaches because your body is trying to detoxify and get rid of what’s bothering you. Those types of headaches are “detoxification headaches” resulting many times from chemical sensitivities to hazardous chemicals like pesticides, automotive chemicals, vaccines, MSG, food coloring…the list goes on… Other types of headaches are the result of allergies to foods, bacteria, molds, etc. The scan will show you what specific allergies you have. It will also show you if there are liver, kidney, digestive concerns or other issues troubling your body. The best part of the scan is that it will give solutions…like what your body needs in terms of nutrients. So when the scan is finished, you will receive a CUSTOMIZED NUTRITIONAL PROTOCOL that will balance out your body’s stressors.
This is a great question that has a variable answer. To answer this it is best to understand how this treatment works. Botox is the brand name for a chemical that acts on nerves entering the muscles to block their communication. This creates an inability of the muscle to contract, which in turn does not allow gathering of the overlying skin causing wrinkles. So what’s an easy way to decide if Botox will work for you? Look in a mirror and scowl. You may notice that this causes vertical wrinkles between the eyebrows, commonly referred to the “11’s”. Now squint your eyes to see if the “crow’s feet” wrinkles appear on the outside of the eyes. These and other wrinkles that are caused by muscles activity are the wrinkles that are easily treated with Botox. Many people also develop wrinkles in these areas that are present even at rest which can see improvements over time. There are of course wrinkles that are not treatable with Botox, such as relaxed wrinkles under the eyes, but these can easily be treated with separate procedures. In general, Botox gives us a great nonsurgical treatment of most wrinkles around the eyes and forehead for people in their late 20’s to 60’s.
Yes! If you don’t have a website for your business, then Facebook is the best option. More of the world’s biggest retailers are selling their products at the place where consumers tend to hang out- Facebook. Think of it as the ultimate convenience for a mobile generation. Until next time remember…Marketing Matters.
Si (Yes)! Niche marketing concentrates all marketing efforts on a small but specific and well defined segment of the population (e.g. Hispanics). Spanish speaking individuals tend to read, listen to, and view Hispanic oriented media. This is where you should look to invest the majority of your marketing budget. GMG works with local Spanish print, radio, and television representatives, which allows GMG to produce quality Spanish ads for these media. Don’t forget- many Hispanics are bilingual. The remainder of your marketing budget shall be utilized to serve your niche, yet expand your client base. Simply place, say, or show “Se Habla Espanol” in your English print, radio, and television marketing. This allows you to reach English speaking consumers, yet still taking in account your Spanish bilingual speaking consumers. Until next time remember…Marketing Matters.
Research has identified a number of factors that may contribute to the development of oral cancer. The most common are the use of tobacco and alcohol. Others include poor oral hygiene, irritation caused by ill-fitting dentures and rough surfaces on teeth, poor nutrition, some chronic infections and combinations of these factors. Because changes can be seen easily in the mouth, diagnosis of oral cancer can be made in its early stages allowing for suspicious areas to be treated and prevent progression. It is recommended that everyone perform a monthly oral exam looking for irregularities, specifically non-healing sores as well as white or red lesions. This should be performed with a bright light and a mirror. Closely examine all areas in your mouth including the roof of your mouth, cheeks, gums, and all surfaces of the tongue and floor of the mouth. In addition to this it is recommended that everyone have an oral screening exam at least once a year, especially if you have any of the above risk factors.
The ZYTO scan is unlike any other. There are other Zyto Scans out there that can quickly scan you and get a reading, but this one is much more detailed and very accurate. A ZytoScan is a non-invasive stress assessment of your body. You simply put your hand on the Zyto Hand Cradle which is attached to the computer. The Zyto Scan program works by biocommunication with your body. It runs 100’s of tests, 2 tests per second. The program sends out digital/virtual stressors. Your body responds by Galvanic Skin Response. Your body’s responses are then recorded and charted. You receive a detailed 16-17 page report of your body’s stressors: bacterial, viral, fungal, allergies, heavy metals, pesticides, other chemicals, and even allergies. At the time of the scan, you need to request an allergy and chemical sensitivity test as it will scan for specific allergies. The cost is included with the scan. You will walk away knowing what you’re allergic to. But rest assured, you will come away with a CUSTOMIZED NUTRITIONAL PROTOCOL that will balance out those stressors. It is worth getting a Zyto Full-Body Health Scan. ZYTO takes the guess work out of personal wellness by allowing you to find out what is stressing your body long before any disease develops, and then recommending how to bring you into balance using the highest quality, all-natural nutritional supplements. If you are already experiencing illness, it will also help by uncovering the actual underlying causes, not merely treating the symptoms. If you have any concerns about what is going on inside your body and the best way to optimize your current and long-term wellness, the ZYTO will give you the real answers you seek. This will save you time, money, and possibly your very life. And if that is not a win-win offer, I know what is!
