Give ‘Life in a bot­tle’

Q&A with JoAnne Y. Gau­thier, tra­di­tional natur­opath, L’Amie de la Santé in Hawkes­bury.

What is the num­ber one rea­son peo­ple should buy from you?

Our pro­fes­sional and friendly ser­vice as well as va­ri­ety and fresh­ness of our prod­ucts.

If you had a choice, what prod­uct in your store would you like to re­ceive your­self?

Def­i­nitely Vita Biosa. It’s like “life in a bot­tle.” The best of both plant and pro­bi­otics. This triple fer­mented prod­uct nat­u­rally re­stores bal­ance in your mi­cro­biome (gut), which boils down to stronger im­mune sys­tem, less in­flam­ma­tion, bet­ter di­ges­tion and nu­tri­ent as­sim­i­la­tion re­sult­ing in more en­ergy and vi­tal­ity. I love the stuff!

What is your most pop­u­lar prod­uct?

That’s a hard ques­tion to an­swer, be­cause we cover so many dif­fer­ent cat­e­gories. In light of that, the first thing that comes to mind is pro­bi­otics, fol­lowed by menopause, stress/sleep prod­ucts and the fa­mil­iar vi­ta­min D, Cal­cium and Omegas.

Have con­sumers’ tastes changed over the years?

Con­sumerism is con­stantly chang­ing and evolv­ing with time, be­cause of tech­nol­ogy and trends, which gen­er­ally last three to six months. Is on­line shopping an issue? In our ex­pe­ri­ence, clients who make the trip to our store, do so for the per­son­al­ized ser­vice we of­fer them. Ev­ery one of our unique team mem­bers brings some­thing spe­cial to our store and we have a loyal cus­tomer base. Why should peo­ple shop lo­cally? Sup­port­ing your lo­cal econ­omy is al­ways a pow­er­ful way of keep- ing your lo­cal mer­chants in busi­ness, which means less trav­el­ling time for shopping and more time for fam­ily and your favourite ac­tiv­i­ties. As for ser­vices, we have three natur­opaths, a re­flex­ol­o­gist, two mas­sage ther­a­pists and many re­fer­ral ser­vices. Our front store staff con­sists of Guy­laine Gagné, natur­opath and gen­eral man­ager, Sue Re­naud, gro­cery man­ager, Linda Weight­man, cus­tomer ser­vice, Vickie Nadeau-St-Amour, pur­chaser, natur­opath in train­ing and cus­tomer ser­vice, JoAnne Gau­thier, natur­opath and mar­ket­ing, Marie-France Jobin, natur­opath in train­ing, cus­tomer ser­vice, Chris Gal­lant, cus­tomer ser­vice, Thérèse Fan­ion, mas­sage ther­a­pist and cus­tomer ser­vice, Sylvie Caou­ette, mas­sage ther­a­pist, Colombe Gau­vin, natur­opath and live blood anal­y­sis, Ca­role Joly, re­flex­ol­o­gist.
