Why do we sell practitioner only supplements?

As a Naturopath, my job is to have you feeling better as quickly as possible and to prevent your health problems from recurring. If you want to achieve a better level of health and improve your quantity and quality of life, I need to treat not only your symptoms but also the underlying causes of disease. That's why many of the programs that I prescribe may involve significant dietary and lifestyle changes and the use of natural medicine supplements. The nutritional and herbal products that I recommend are, in our opinion, the best. I prescribe these products because we know they get results. If they didn't, we'd be out of business! That's why we recommend products from MediHerb & Metagenics, because I know they work. The health of you, our other patients and our clinic depends on it! By prescribing the MediHerb, Bioceuticals and Metagenics ranges of natural medicines, I am recommending the highest quality most effective products available.

How to Choose the Best Supplement for Your Health?

When choosing a quality supplement, don't fall for marketing and advertising. Just because a particular brand of supplement is promoted by a well known sportsperson or TV personality does not mean that it is of a high quality or contains effective levels of ingredients. There are a vast number of factors that contribute to a product's effectiveness such as:


  • The quality and source of the raw materials,
  • The quality and care that goes into the manufacturing process,
  • The synergy of the formulation (will the ingredients work together and enhance the total effect),
  • What are the main ingredients i.e. if there are 6 ingredients in a product, which are the most important?
  • Are the important ingredients at a therapeutic level (quantity) to provide a health outcome?
  • Are the nutritional ingredients in a form that is most easily absorbed?
  • Is this product safe for me to take?


These 7 points are enough to get you thinking, but there are many others that also should be considered. Importantly the type of product and dosage to be taken depends very much on your current state of health, age, diet and lifestyle and should be assessed by a health care professional.







You only get what you put in

When we recommend certain vitamins, minerals and herbs your initial thought may be "I can get that cheaper from the supermarket". This is rarely true when you weigh up what you are really getting in the cheaper supermarket brands. In cheaper mass market supplements producers often compromise the quality of the raw materials and the processes they use, resulting in lower dosage ingredients that are poorly absorbed. Plant parts are often sourced from the cheaper parts or species rather than these that are proven to be effective. Reactive ingredients such as talc, shellac, unstable oils, wheat (gluten) , lactose, yeast and dairy protein (casein) are often used as fillers to save money. Unfortunately, these ingredients reduce both the biological activity and clinical effectiveness of the products. In addition, budget supplements do not contain the correct ratios of active ingredients to be considered therapeutic.


My aim is to get you back to optimum health and enhance your wellbeing for the long term. Our natural medicines can have dramatic positive effects on your health. If you have made the commitment to better health and paid me for my advice then you want to see results. That's why I recommend MediHerb and Metagenics products, because they work. Your health and our clinic depend on it.
