Nat­u­ral so­lu­tions for health


AT Spear­wood 7 Day Phar­macy, the on­site natur­opath, highly trained staff and phar­ma­cists are able to in­te­grate nat­u­ral medicines to im­prove pa­tient out­comes.

The phar­macy fea­tures an ex­ten­sive range of prac­ti­tioner-only prod­ucts and gen­eral vi­ta­mins with a fo­cus on Bio­ceu­ti­cals, Herbs of Gold and Eth­i­cal Nu­tri­ents prod­ucts.

Tak­ing vi­ta­mins can help in the treat­ment and preven­tion of many dis­eases and also sup­port a bal­anced diet and lifestyle.

Phar­macy natur­opath Alisa Chalklen has a pas­sion for show­ing peo­ple that nat­u­ral medicine can treat med­i­cal con­di­tions, as well as be­ing com­ple­men­tary to con­ven­tional medicine.

“Nat­u­ral medicines may help to in­crease the symp­to­matic re­lief pre­scrip­tion medicines pro­vide and treat the root of the is­sue,” she said.

“Some pre­scrip­tion medicines can also un­for­tu­nately re­sult in un­de­sir­able side-ef­fects, which can be re­duced with the help of herbs and vi­ta­mins.”

Alisa said dur­ing win­ter, along­side drink­ing plenty of wa­ter and en­joy­ing sea­sonal fresh fruit and veg­eta­bles, a high­strength zinc sup­ple­ment could help the im­mune sys­tem stay strong.

“A herbal throat spray is another one of my favourite things to have on hand for as soon as I feel a tickle in my throat,” she said.

“One of my most sat­is­fy­ing cases since be­com­ing a natur­opath in­volved help­ing to re­duce the joint pain in a gen­tle­men with anky­los­ing spondyli­tis.

“So much so that he was able to make the re­turn flight to his home coun­try of In­dia to spend time with his fam­ily – some­thing that his pain had pre­vented him from do­ing for years.

“I’ve also had great suc­cess in cases of asthma, IBS and sleep is­sues.”

Highly ex­pe­ri­enced phar­macy as­sis­tant Na­dia Russo has been in the phar­macy in­dus­try for 17 years and has a pas­sion for al­ter­na­tive and nat­u­ral medicine.

“I like that nat­u­ral medicine can work as a pre­ven­ta­tive and also has no side­ef­fects,” she said.

“It of­ten best fits along­side pa­tients’ pre­scribed med­i­ca­tion to boost en­ergy and help detox.”
