Quiz: A simple screening to determine your hereditary cancer risk

Stay home.  Stay safe.  Take the QUIZ.

For many of our patients, we have had to postpone and reschedule your appointment.

Capturing a personal and family cancer history is something we believe is VERY important to your management care plan.  Normally, we do this at your Annual Well Woman Exam.

 

Because as many as 10% of all cancers are hereditary, we at the Couri Center want to ensure you are proactive in managing any potential risk.  Taking a quick quiz can tell us if you are at a higher risk of developing certain types of cancer.

We are now offering this simple screening quiz ONLINE so you can take it from the comfort of your home!   We can then schedule virtual visits (telemedicine), as needed for your safety and convenience!

 

During this “stay at home” time, we now have a way to continue this patient evaluation.   We ask that you take 5-minutes and complete this online quiz.

 

START QUIZ

Our team can then determine if additional steps are needed to assist in your cancer prevention plan.

If you have any questions, please contact us through our 24/7  patient portal or call 309-692-6838.

 

Thank you and stay healthy!

Healthy Gut, Happy Skin! By Leslie A. Gilstrap, LE

Your skin is the largest organ of the body. Not only is it affected by external factors like the sun, free radicals, and of course, the normal aging process, it’s also affected internally by our digestive system. It’s not as hard as you think to follow a few essential tasks to increase elastin, collagen, decrease inflammation, and have more glowing, healthy skin. After all, we are what we eat.

Drink warm water with lemon

Drinking warm water with lemon will help your digestive system throughout the whole day. The citric acid aids in a productive digest system.

Eat plenty of fiber-based foods, including fruits, vegetables, whole grains, and seeds.

You’ll be less likely to crave carbohydrates. These fibrous foods are filling and also provide antioxidants.

Consider taking a digestive enzyme

Digestive supplements are important for people who have trouble digesting food.  Consider scheduling an appointment with our Registered Dietitian if this is an area of concern.

Be mindful of snacking

Say no to chips and other junk food. Instead, reach for plant-based, whole foods like carrots, celery, and broccoli.

Make sure to chew your food

Ample chewing allows for proper digestion.

 

If you struggle with digestive issues, acne, psoriasis, eczema, or unknown rashes, consider food sensitivity testing.  As a Licensed Esthetician, I am also available for a complimentary skin care consultation to help with a proper skin care regimen.

 

To happy skin,

By Leslie A. Gilstrap, LE

 

 

 

10% OFF All Supplements

Supplement Sale:  10% OFF ALL SUPPLEMENTS.  Sale ends May 15.

 

Here are some of Dr. Couri’s most-recommended supplements for women:

  1. Multivitamin – a good quality multivitamin helps to fill in the “gaps” of what we may not be eating in our diet. Our favorite is ActivNutrients without Iron by Xymogen.
  2. Calcium – 600 mg daily
  3. Vitamin D – at least 2,000 units of D3 daily. The recommended dose is based on a blood test result of your Vitamin D levels.
  4. Fish oil – Omega 3 Fatty Acids – these healthy fats are so important for heart and brain health. Again, the quality of the fish oil does matter. One of my favorite brands is Nordic Naturals ProOmega. If you are using a different brand, make sure the dose is correct. Look at the label on the back of the bottle. The sum of EPA + DHA should equal at least 1,000mg.
  5. CoQ10 – this supplement is so critical to energy production in our cells. Anyone taking a “statin” for high cholesterol should take CoQ10 since statin drugs deplete our CoQ10. The standard dose is 100mg daily.
  6. Probiotic – the “good” bacteria that we need for the health of our gut, but also for vaginal health. Anyone with recurrent vaginal infections should be on a good quality probiotic daily. ProbioMax Daily DF by Xymogen is one of my favorite.

Many other supplements may be of benefit for certain medical problems. The Couri Center providers may suggest certain ones to fit your needs. If you have any questions, please ask.  Our #1 priority is to keep you healthy- mind, body, and spirit!

Telemedicine: A Patient-Centered Approach By Deb Collins, M.S., PA-C

Understanding Telemedicine (Tele-consult)

Telemedicine, (when a patient is physically separated from the provider), is not a new concept. However, with the recent Pandemic, we have found a use for it more than ever. Telemedicine has been used for centuries in one way or another. Back in the ancient times, smoke signals were used to notify other African villages of disease outbreaks. In the middle ages, bonfires were used to warn people in Europe of the bubonic plague.  Then, as telecommunication progressed, the telegraph was used to transmit information about epidemics and war casualties. Eventually, the telephone and internet facilitated what we now call “modern-day telemedicine.”

As if a critical global shortage of providers was not enough; we now find ourselves facing situations that we never dreamed we would see in our lifetimes.  Modern-day activities have being transformed, and children and adults alike are grasping new ways of learning, overnight.  With that being said, challenges can induce new ways of thinking and brings innovative ideas that will help us all have a progressive mindset.

We all know that in a perfect world, having the right person at the right time is not always possible, especially when mighty viruses turn our world upside down. Having the ability to incorporate audio and video technology and perform video-to-video communication has led to extreme growth in the medical community.  It has changed healthcare delivery and allowed clinicians to consult with expert doctors, where treatments may have been delayed. Also, the ability to reach out to the rural or elderly population and provide a specialist is a miracle in and of itself. Emergency doctors have been using telemedicine in the pre-hospital setting to quickly diagnose stroke and heart attack patients before they arrive at the ER doors. We have learned that a quicker diagnosis leads to better clinical outcomes.

Scheduling a Tele-Consult

Now with COVID-19, providers have had to learn best practices for serving our patients, while simultaneously adapting to this new ever-changing environment.  At the Couri Center, your health is our number one priority!  We understand that gynecological problems and integrative wellness are no different.  Through a short video conference from your computer, phone, or iPad, we can diagnose and treat many common conditions we see in our practice.  Visits are billable to private insurance and Medicare. Some insurances are even waiving co-pays on telemedicine video calls through April 30, 2020.  If you need a telemedicine appointment, please call us at 309-692-6838 or visit our 24/7 online patient portal–new patients are always welcome. We are here to serve you during this difficult time. 

Please stay healthy, and we hope to see you soon.

Love your Hormones with harmonié

HARMONIÉ BHRT BIOIDENTICAL HORMONE REPLACEMENT THERAPY

Properly balanced hormones are vital to a woman’s health. Recent studies show that women are experiencing menopause at much earlier ages. By age 40, most women are totally depleted of normal levels of estrogen and have lost nearly all their progesterone and more than half of their testosterone. While a normal part of aging, these changes can greatly affect the way we feel. Untreated, imbalanced hormones cause a variety of undesirable symptoms:

Symptoms of hormone imbalance:

  • Anxiety/Depression
  • Fatigue/Loss of energy
  • Weight gain
  • Decreased libido/Sex drive
  • Hot flashes/Night sweats
  • Hair loss
  • Insomnia
  • Loss of muscle tone
  • Brain Fog/Loss of memory
  • Irritability
  • And more…
