We carry many professional grade supplements which are designed for use by licensed healthcare providers only. Our dispensary carries many lines of both professional and non professional supplements for your convenience.
We recommend to avoid self prescribing natural treatments. Botanical medicines and supplements can have side effects just as pharmaceutical products. This is why professional products are available only to our patients or to those with a prescription from their ND or MD. In consultation with your Naturopathic physician, usage of herbal remedies and supplements will be monitored similar to other medications which can have the potential to cause adverse reactions and drug interactions when used in combination with various prescription pharmaceuticals, herbal medicines or supplements. As well, special attention must be paid when prescribing during pregnancy, breastfeeding or with specific health conditions.
Naturopathic medicine, similar to mainstream medicine is based on the principles of evidence-based medicine but also traditional use. Naturopathic Doctors must stay up todate with natural health research, thus as a part of continuing education your Naturopathic Doctor reviews the latest research on your condition and its related treatments.
