 The Failure Of On-Line Doctor Prescription Writers And Why Labs,
RBy Dr. Donna Becker
ecently, a man came to me who
had merely filled out a form on
the internet and then was sent a prescription for testosterone. A friend had told him I prescribed testosterone and obtained a lot of tests that had really helped him. For example, I order for nearly all patients an advanced blood test, that answers these questions:
~Are eggs good for me or not? Are they adding to a cholesterol problem? (TMAO) ~Am I at risk for a sudden blood clot like a famous TV celebrity who is now the spokesperson for an anti-clotting medication?
~What exactly is my inflammation ratio? With this test, I can tell the client, to take more fish oil or eat less omega 6 foods or both.
Most importantly, this test quantifies the LDL particle number which, unlike total cholesterol, really is related to risk of heart attack. We all know people who have heart attacks with low cholesterol. Surprisingly, this large test profile is generally paid by Medicare and most insurances.
Incredibly, women are commonly told that hormone levels don’t matter in menopause and instructed to take the same medication given to every woman—or take

People who want information and detailed guidance tailored to them are my preferred clients. Seeing people like the man with the on-line doc refreshes and re- energizes me as to my mission. Simply: I want to help people live fully, optimally. No age limit to living well.

 Mission: Mobility
By Nancy Dieckow
I magine if you had to crawl every place you needed to go because you have a birth defect or have had an illness or accident that robbed you of the use of your legs. Since you also live in a developing country with very few paved roads and sidewalks, a regular medical wheelchair is of little
use.
It is the mission of
Mobility Worldwide
to make and ship
specialized hand powered wheelchairs to these least served people. These carts enable them to access health care, markets and schools and often aid them in supporting themselves as well as improving their quality of life.
Mobility Worldwide – San Antonio is the charity of choice for the Del Webb HCR Annual Arts and Crafts Festival (see ad on this page). By providing services, the sale of snacks, food and handcrafted wooden products and conducting a raffle of vendor
donated items they were able to build and ship 12 carts with proceeds from the 2019 Festival. These carts resulted in 12 changed lives!
Plan now to attend the Festival, shop from a great selection of handcrafted goods and support the mission of Mobility Worldwide.
