Professional grade supplements are designed for use by licensed healthcare providers only. They have the highest standard of purity, quality and strength and are targeted to treat specific conditions. The secret to pharmaceutical grade supplements is that they are formulated to yield a much higher degree of bioavailability. In other words, your body can absorb them more easily and thus they can improve your health in a more effective manner.
Avoid self prescribing natural treatments. Botanical medicines and supplements can have side effects just as pharmaceutical products. If used in wrong manner, these products can cause serious side-effects. This is why professional products are available only to our patients or to those with a prescription from their ND or MD.
Professional products are regulated and quality controlled. In consultation with a physician, usage of herbal remedies and supplements should be monitored as natural products similar to other medications 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.
Naturopathy, similar to mainstream medicine is based on the principles of evidence-based medicine. 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.
