Welcome the New Year in Good Health

Many of us see the new year as a chance to restart and refresh. A time for setting new goals and making resolutions to improve health and happiness. 2022 is YOUR year.


With the hectic last two years, there has been a lot of time spent at home, where many overindulged with some extra lbs., while others missed preventative or regular medical appointments. It is time to get back on track into a healthy lifestyle.

1. Schedule Medical Appointments

There is a high demand for medical offices, considering the number of people who may have been neglecting preventative care or putting off check-ups due to the public health crisis, that are deciding to do so now. Missing appointments, treatments, and testing can lead to more serious, harder to treat conditions- so it is very important to get those scheduled.

2. Check Hormone and Vitamin Levels, Among Others

You can easily check your hormone, vitamin levels and more through at-home saliva or blood spot testing. Eastern States Compounding carries testing kits that patients are able purchase, take home to collect in the comfort of their homes.

Saliva Tests – A non-invasive method using saliva to measure your hormone levels by collecting saliva in a plastic tube and sending it to the laboratory for testing.

Blood Spot Tests – Involves pricking the finger using a lancet and dropping blood on the filter card, that is then sent to the laboratory for testing.

How Does it Work?

Step 1: Your physician orders a prescription for a specific testing kit based on the levels that the physician needs tested.

Step 2: Eastern States Compounding Pharmacy receives the prescription.

Step 3: Patient picks up kit at Eastern States Pharmacy, with pharmacists ready to provide answers to their questions regarding sample collection and other questions.

Step 4: Patient collects blood or saliva samples at home, and submits the kit to the ZRT labs following the shipping instructions provided.

Step 5: ZRT labs send the results to Eastern States Pharmacy where they are then forwarded to the provider along with recommendations.


Expert pharmacists are knowledgeable about supplements and compounded medications when addressing deficiencies and disease markers found in test results. 

Oftentimes, prescribers turn to compounding pharmacies due to commercially available medications being made with allergens (ingredients patients are allergic to), or if the needed med has been discontinued, and even when a specific dosage or form is needed for patients’ special needs.

Bioidentical hormones are chemically identical to the ones your body makes, so they are more easily absorbed. Menopausal women and men with testosterone deficiencies are examples of how BHRT an be utilized.
