“If you’ve learned during the pandemic that you actually prefer the convenience of getting things done from home, I’ve got great news. You can get essential medical care without leaving the house or even doing a video visit! Through the Nurx website or app, you can connect with a wonderful medical provider licensed in your state to request birth control, prescription skincare, migraine treatment, herpes treatment and more, and once the medical provider prescribes medication, our pharmacy will deliver it to your door. We bill insurance or offer affordable out-of-pocket pricing with free shipping, but the best part is that the caring Nurx medical team will be available to you for an entire year to answer questions related to your care.”

“Anxiety, addiction, and pain have all reached epidemic proportions in the first two decades of the 21st century. That was true before the pandemic of 2020 caused all three categories to skyrocket. Stress is literally killing us, and yet so many of us aren’t being helped by traditional means. Working with a team of scientists, all of them top researchers in their respective fields, we developed Healium, a combination of virtual reality and neurofeedback. This unique approach to relaxation has been clinically demonstrated to provide heightened levels of anxiety self-management, positivity, elevated empathy, and overall mood improvement. Given the seriousness of the stress epidemic and its associated cost both in quality of life and dollars lost to illness, Healium provides a sound alternative for relaxation, and it’s all backed by science.”
