Behind The Counter Ep13: Have systems in place from the small to the big! Don’t be a One Man Show
I had an issue last night we’re a customer left without her script and unhappy. You learn best from your most unhappy customers and this one hit home that we need to systematise every one of our processes-even something we do on a routine basis like dispensing medicine!

Behind The Counter Ep11: The One Skill Needed To Run A Business: Accounting!
Due diligence. That ugly word used before buying real estate, or a business, or anything serious in your life! I didn’t do any before buying this pharmacy except for knowing something called a P&L sheet. Well actually that’s one-third of the pie....the other two essentials are the balance sheet and the cashflow sheet. Yikes. Please do yourself a favour before going into biz to familiarise yourself with these 3 mammoth keys to business accounting.

My Girlfriend's Eczema Won't Go Away: How To Fix It Inside-Out
I had the pleasure of meeting my physiotherapist friend, Kevin, and he asks: Q. What should my girlfriend do for her eczema? She gets it on the nape of her neck and it never seems to go away. Having just returned from Taiwan, she’s going to eliminate diary from her diet in hopes of getting some relief. Currently she is using steroid creams.

|NIGHTLINE| Vien Tells A 17yo Girl To Quit Hungry Jacks
A quick 2min rant as I destroyed a girl's misguided view of healthy eating habits and tell her to quit her job at Hungry Jacks. Background on this girl: 17yo, life long sufferer of constipation, eats oily food, avoids water and will only eat fruit given by her grandmother. She's on Movicol x4 a day, Concerta, and a few others I forget now.. Being a 17yo is borderline adult, old enough to be responsible, but still young enough to be impressionable. I tell it straight. She is eating shit food. It's no wonder she's got diarrhoea and tummy pain. I tell her to quit Hungry Jacks. Her mum jumps in saying nono you've crossed the line. I call BS! She is a product of her environment: subconsciously seeing oily food all day? Can someone tell me why she only eats fried food at home?

Ep#9 Super Charged Brain
This podcast was recorded specially for my friend David K. He wanted to optimise his brain performance for 2018 and was seeking nutritional supplements like fish oil and ginkgo. The latter being the topic today. Summary points: 1) clinical trials show some benefit for short term memory 2) takes about a month to see effects 3) dosage is 120-240mg (max 300mg daily 4) also helps blood circulation so men wink wink || Follow me on Facebook @smilingpharmacist Instagram @smilingpharmacist Snapchat @vienraphael Podcast anchor.fm/smilingpharmacist

Man-Boobs due to Estrogens 💉
How do Oestrogens cause saggy Man-Boobs? Oestrogens are found not just in women but also men. Even in the prostate! In excess it acts like a carcinogen causing breast cancer, prostate cancer, causing insulin and leptin levels to rage out of control. It causes diabetes and erectile dysfunction. It’s involved with heart attacks and strokes. So ...........why all the incriminating charges against this naturally formed hormone? It’s cause in this day there are lots of shit food being eaten, pesticides consumed via our produce, drugs founds in our cosmetics and treated farm animals. You are what u eat so it follows that you are killing yourself when you do expose yourself like this. || Follow on Facebook @pharmacistvien Instagram @vienletran Snapchat @vienraphael
