Natural Products
Here at Medicine Shoppe we have many natural products to choose from. The best thing about purchasing from us is that you can speak with one of our pharmacists to see if the product you are interested in is safe for you. Some common misconceptions regarding herbal/natural medications is that they are safe for everyone, that they are safe in any dose, they have no side effects, and they have no interactions with prescription medications. These are all incorrect.

Whenever you want to purchase/take natural products ALWAYS speak with your pharmacist. There are many natural products that have significant reactions with prescription medications. They may reduce/increase the effectiveness of your medication and may cause additional side effects . When your Medicine Shoppe pharmacist knows you and your medications they can make educated decisions to help you choose which products may be right for you.

Whether it’s Vitamin C or Vitamin E. Whether it’s Grape Seed extract or Co Q 10. Whether it’s water soluble or fat soluble. All are good anti-oxidants but each one has different attributes and each may be good for different patients. Ask your Medicine Shoppe Pharmacist.
Osteoarthritis products
One thing to remember when treating osteoarthritis (OA) is that it is much different than rheumatoid arthritis (RA). RA is an autoimmune disorder. It causes redness, pain, and heat at the site of the problem (usually starts in hands/fingers). It is also bi-lateral meaning if you have one hand with RA then the other hand will have it as well. One knee affected, the other will be affected too.

Most times RA requires prescription medication. OA on the other hand is not autoimmune. It is uni-lateral (one side only), usually does not have accompanying redness and heat at site of pain. OA is due to the loss of tissue and can usually be treated with tylenol. Instead of just ordering or picking up a product, your medicine shoppe pharmacist would explain all this to you and investigate your symptoms before suggesting an appropriate product for you. Products for OA include acetaminophen, ibuprofen, ASA ,Glucosamine, MSM, Chondroitin, and a host of other products, depending on your symptoms.

This is very common disease especially among women. Osteoporosis is basically the thinning of your bones due to calcium loss. One of the common misconceptions is that bone is static (doesn’t change) when in actual fact your body is continually taking calcium out of your bones for use in many biological processes. In theory your body would put back as much as it takes out but this doesn’t happen as much as you age. You start to take out much more calcium than is getting put back into your bones. This loss is called osteoporosis. There are only a few ways to combat this. One is weight bearing exercise (walking, working out), eating more calcium, and taking calcium supplements.

Here at the Medicine Shoppe we would set up a plan for you to try and do all three of these things simultaneously to help increase bone mass. People should also be aware that calcium tends to bind to, and decrease effectiveness, of many different prescription medications. Its also important to take calcium along with vitamin D. This helps your body absorb the calcium to a much higher extent. When you speak with your Medicine Shoppe pharmacist they can tell you how much calcium to take, what time to take it, as well as any interactions with your prescriptions.

When it’s all in working order we rarely give the digestive system a second thought. The reality is that turning all those carbohydrates, protein, fats and vitamins from the foods we eat into body fuel is actually a pretty elaborate process. Our gastrointestinal tract, pancreas, gallbladder and liver are all working in unison to keep us healthy, but every now and then, our digestive system needs a little “TLC” to stay in good shape. It’s common knowledge that eating habits, lifestyle, medication or medical conditions can all disturb our digestion. Small changes in any one of these areas can break the delicate balance and lead to a host of problems, such as diarrhea or constipation.

Wise meal choices and supplementing with natural health products, such as probiotics, can help keep our digestive systems healthy and relieve uncomfortable symptoms. Our pharmacists can help choose which products will work the best.

Eye Care
How amazing our eyes are! Not only can they process tremendous amounts of information, but they can also identify thousands of shades and colours. Unfortunately, as we get older, medical conditions like age-related macular degeneration (AMD) can affect our sight. For people over 65, AMD is the leading cause of irreversible vision loss and blindness.

Eating a balanced diet with healthy foods like kale, carrots and citrus fruits is one of the best things we can do for our eyes. But if that’s not realistic, then taking high-quality eye supplements containing antioxidant vitamins and carotenoids (lutein and zeaxanthin) can also help prevent or slow the progression of AMD. Our best defence in the fight against AMD starts by arming ourselves with knowledge. Our pharmacists can provide a better understanding of AMD and choosing the supplements that are right for each person.

General Health
The immune system is a fascinating defence network. Our “champion” against disease, bacteria and viruses, it works on protecting us from the day we’re born. The bad news: we are still going to get sick from time to time. Lack of sleep, poor nutrition and chronic stress are just a few of the things that can compromise our immune system. The good news: it is still possible to shorten or ease symptoms once they have begun.

Eating a balanced diet, exercising regularly and getting enough sleep can all contribute to keeping our immune systems working properly. Other immunity boosters include natural health products. Have a cold? Try Echinacea Purpea, which can soothe and shorten the duration of symptoms. Want to know more about vitamins and natural health products? Talk to your pharmacist today. Because the more we know, the healthier we’ll be.

Immune System
Every moment of every day, our blood delivers oxygen and nutrients to nourish every cell in our body. It is a key player in our body’s ability to fight infection, heal wounds, circulate hormones and even remove waste. Keeping our blood healthy and oxygenrich is extremely important to our overall wellbeing.

Usually we can count on a balanced diet to ensure we get the vitamins and minerals we need. However, for some of us this isn’t always possible. Strict vegetarians, for example, are more likely to be at risk for a Vitamin B12 deficiency because it is almost only found in foods from animal sources, such as meat, fish and dairy products. It’s a good idea to talk to a health care professional to ensure we’re getting all the vitamins and minerals we need to stay healthy. Our pharmacists can help select the right supplements for each person.

Nervous System
The nervous system is a fascinating and complex network that includes the brain, spinal cord, as well as the nerves that run through our entire bodies. Think of it as a master control centre that connects all of the body’s systems and allows them to communicate with each other in the blink of an eye. The fastest nerves in our nervous system sends messages to our brains at more than 322 kilometres per hour.

As with any highly intricate system or network, problems can sometimes arise, including sleep disorders and depression. Good nutrition, exercise and supplements can act as supportive therapies in the treatment of some of these disorders. Our pharmacists can help suggest the right natural health products to help keep our nervous systems running more smoothly.
