There are several advantages to using Dispatch Health for urgent care.
- It costs much less than the ER, and if you have health insurance, it typically costs the same as your urgent care copay. If you don’t have insurance, the cost of a Dispatch Health visit will set you back about $150-$300, still far less than a visit to the ER.
- They come to you, so there’s no need to sit in a crowded, infected waiting room, where you could be exposed to other diseases.
- No traveling while you are ill
- They can treat a number of ailments that require urgent care, and prescribe medication for you on the spot.
- They can see you within a short time of requesting care.
The next time you are very ill don’t avoid treatment due to the cost, and don’t make an expensive trip to the ER. Just call Dispatch Health. Get immediate treatment for an affordable price.
My daughter needed something to give her energy, calm her nerves, and fill her up before work, so I invented this variation on the Apple Pie Green Smoothie for her. She loves it so much, she asks me to make it for her! And trust me, if she likes it, you’ll like it too!
Apple Pie Green Smoothie
- 3/4 cup of unsweetened vanilla almond milk
- 1 large apple.
- A handful of kale
- 2 heaping tablespoons of coconut milk powder
- 1 tsp chlorella powder
- 1/4 tsp ground cinnamon
- 1/8 tsp ground nutmeg
- 1 1/2 tablespoons of ground seeds. I used a chia, flax, hemp combo. ( I ground them in my coffee grinder)
- 1 cup of ice
Blend everything except the ice together. I use the smoothie setting on my Blendtec Blender. Once blended, add the ice, and blend again. Check the consistency. If it’s a little watery, just add another 1/4 cup of ice, and blend one more time.
So on my quest to improve my health and thus use less healthcare, I’ve been “inventing” smoothies. Yesterday, I accidentally made one that was very disgusting. Lesson learned…never mix watermelon with kale. Ewwww. But today, I think I found the most harmonious concoction yet. I’ll dub it the Orange Cherry Creamsicle Smoothie.
- 1 large naval orange (peeled and divided)
- 1 cup of frozen sweet cherries
- 1/4 cup of plain greek yogurt
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 1 heaping tablespoon of ground chia, flax, hempseed mix (I just ground it in my coffee grinder)
- Blend all ingredients till smooth
- Add about 1 and 1/2 cups ice, and blend again.
This concoction was sooooo delicious. I can’t wait to make it again. The yogurt will provide some probiotics and the seeds will provide protein. The orange will give me the vitamin C I need to boost my immune system. It’s all natural and makes a great meal replacement for breakfast.
