My Reminder that Stays with Me

           It all started with a busy morning, the kind you rush through. I was lucky to remember my coffee on the counter, yet I forgot my cell phone at home. My cell phone was important for many reasons. I tried hard to always remember to bring my cell phone with me but there were times I would forget to bring it. This was a day plagued with memory lapses. This forgetful experience was detrimental to my health since I put my reminders for my medication on my cell phone. Epilepsy is the type of condition in which you can’t forget to take your medication. While at work I was worrying about not having my cell phone. It was a busy day with many deadlines to work through. I forgot to take my seizure medication on time and had an epileptic episode. This was an embarrassing and frightening moment for me.

            After this happened, I concluded that the cell phone reminder was not working for me. I spent some time researching a product that would help me never to forget to take my medication again. I found the e-pill 12 Alarm CADEX medication reminder watch (with an alert function) by e-pill. This product is unique and functional and it even has a patent on it. It has 12 alarms as well as a medical snooze feature which continually notifies me until I take my medication. The watch also has a beneficial alert button. When the alert button is pressed is displays my name, condition, any allergies, my doctor’s name, and other vital information. I feel confident with my 12 Alarm e-pill CADEX watch that even though I will continue to forget some things, it will not be my medication. Leave your cell phone reminder behind on purpose this time, and choose a 12 Alarm CADEX e-pill medication reminder and alert watch instead.

 Allergies & Asthma Time!

 

Having been cooped inside all winter, most of us yearn for the warm days of Spring. At last, it’s here! Time to open the windows, pack away the winter clothes, do Spring cleaning, and stock up on allergy medications.

 

Most of us greet Spring with open arms. However, there are some who greet the new season with watery, itchy eyes, stuffy and runny noses.

 

Here are some ways to fight the “Allergy Blues”:

 

1.      Pollen can be found inside and outside your home. Keep pollen under control.  Wash bedding every week with hot water. Wash your hair and shower before going to bed since pollen can accumulate in hair.

2.      Vacuum and dust your home on a regular basis.

3.      Keep your car and house windows closed when pollen counts are high. If it’s hot, turn on your air conditioner. Make sure you’re using HEPA filters.

4.      Try to work outside i.e. lawn moving, gardening, etc on days when pollen counts are low.

5.      Take your allergy medications as needed.

 

If your suffer from Allergies there is a chance that you also suffer from Asthma.

 

Here are a few suggestions to help keep your Asthma in check this Spring:

1.      Keep a record of your asthmatic episodes. This practice can help isolate what some of your triggers might be.

2.      Peak flow readings can let you know if your Asthma is getting worse.

3.      Triggers can fall into two categories (Possible aids in parenthesis)

 

            Allergen related :

                        – dust mites ( mattress and pillow covers, consistent vacuuming )

                        – cockroaches ( pest control )

                        – animal dander ( consistent and quality vacuum cleaner )

                        – indoor mold

                        – pollen ( wash hair every night, wash bedding regularly )

 

            Non-allergy related :

                        – cigarette smoke ( air purifier can help this trigger )

                        – air pollution ( air purifier can help this trigger )

                        – cold/dry air

                        – exercise

                        – upper respiratory infections ( regular doctor visits to treat illness )

 

4.      Improve your environment to improve your overall condition. Once you know your triggers you can help yourself by limiting trigger exposure.

5.      Be organized and prepared. Make sure to have your inhaler or medication on your at all times in case of a flare up.

 

 

Asthma is a condition which should be monitored by a physician. After an exam a doctor may decide to treat your condition with inhalers, steroids, etc. These suggestions should be considered only after your Asthma and/or Allergies are treated by your Doctor. We hope the following suggestions can help you get the most out of Spring!
