Am­cal natur­opath will close the gap

Whitsunday Times - - LOOK GOOD FEEL GOOD -

WITH a wealth of ex­pe­ri­ence, Natur­opath June Gob­bos strives to close the gap be­tween phar­ma­ceu­ti­cal and nat­u­ral ther­a­pies in the Whit­sun­day re­gion.

Cannonvale’s Am­cal Phar­macy has em­ployed a Natur­opath to as­sist in their cus­tomer’s op­ti­mum care.

Cus­tomers can re­ceive a one-on-one con­sul­ta­tion with Ms Gob­bos, who will be based in the herbal and vi­ta­min sup­ple­ment dis­pen­sary.

Ms Gob­bos said her pri­mary ob­jec­tive was to pro­vide the Whit­sun­day re­gion with op­tions for their health.

“I want to teach people that there are op­tions in ev­ery­thing in life,” she said.

She wants to end the age of old de­bate of natur­o­pathic medicine ver­sus phar­ma­ceu­ti­cal medicine.

“When I was a stu­dent it was very much “us against them” and my study proved that they can work to­gether for the ben­e­fit of mankind,” she said.

“A lot of people don’t re­alise that nu­tri­tional sup­ple­ments can sup­port people while they are on phar­ma­ceu­ti­cal med­i­ca­tion that’s re­ally im­por­tant to know,” she said.

Con­tin­u­ously learn­ing, the self ac­claimed ‘old school’ natur­opath said it was im­por­tant to keep study­ing so she could of­fer her best ad­vice to cus­tomers.

Ms Gob­bos also of­fers in-store al­lergy tests for cus­tomer con­ve­nience.

“Only six years ago, you had to send away blood tests now with one pin­prick we can pro­vide a read­ing within an hour or so,” she said.

NA­TURES WAY: Natur­opath June Gob­bos is happy to serve you at Cannonvale's Am­cal Phar­macy.
