Ded­i­cated to your health out­comes

Whitsunday Times - - WHITSUNDAY SOCIAL SCENE -

EVER-GROW­ING and ever striv­ing to give their clients the best pos­si­ble health out­comes, Am­cal Phar­macy natur­opath June Gob­bos has just added an­other cer­tifi­cate to her im­pres­sive stash.

Ms Gob­bos re­cently com­pleted a pro­fes­sional sem­i­nar called ‘Con­fi­dent and Safe Pre­scrib­ing along­side Phar­ma­ceu­ti­cals for Bet­ter Pa­tient Out­comes’.

Both nat­u­ral and phar­ma­ceu­ti­cal medicines have a lot to of­fer the health of pa­tients.

Ms Gob­bos be­lieves phar­ma­ceu­ti­cal medicines have the abil­ity to con­trol phys­i­o­log­i­cal and patho­phys­i­o­log­i­cal pro­cesses in the body, al­le­vi­at­ing symptoms and re­duc­ing the acute risk for many in­di­vid­u­als.

She pro­poses that nat­u­ral medicines get to the root of the dis­ease, treat­ing the ba­sic driv­ers that cause the prob­lems thus al­low­ing the body to re­store home­osta­sis.

“As you can see they both can com­ple­ment each other beau­ti­fully. Take for ex­am­ple the use of statin drugs which of­ten leave peo­ple with lethargy and mus­cle sore­ness but with the ad­di­tion of co Q 10 en­zyme the symptoms dis­ap­pear and en­ergy re­turns,” Ms Gob­bos said.

“You may be ask­ing “Why hasn’t my doc­tor told me of this?” and the an­swer is be­cause doc­tors have to learn so much they do min­i­mal nu­tri­tional study and there­fore re­ally don’t know - that is un­less they have done fur­ther study.”

Ms Gob­bos be­lieves this is where natur­opaths can help you.

Natur­opaths can do an EDMC, which looks at your med­i­ca­tion and sup­ple­ments and other life­style fac­tors.

Through this natur­opaths look at the ev­i­dence, dos­ing, mon­i­tor­ing and com­mu­ni­ca­tion and then can give you the in­for­ma­tion to give you the best health out­comes.

This free ser­vice is avail­able from natur­opath June Gob­bos at Am­cal Phar­macy in the Whit­sun­day Plaza for the next month.

CER­TI­FIED AND AWARDED: Am­cal Phar­macy natur­opath June Gob­bos has just com­pleted a sem­i­nar ti­tled ‘con­fi­dent and safe pre­scrib­ing along­side phar­ma­ceu­ti­cals for bet­ter pa­tient out­comes’.
