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.”
