Plant medicine is the oldest and most widely used form of medicine in the world today. Our knowledge and methods are based on the combination of traditional wisdom and current scientific research. Herbal medicines are extractions prepared solely from plants and can be dispensed as liquid extracts, essences, tablets, capsules, infusions and topical preparations. Herbs and other medicinal plants may also be incorporated fresh into your diet as therapeutic foods.
We believe whole food nutrition provides the foundation of good health. A constant variety of delicious, nutrient dense food is essential to restore and maintain good health. Each one of us has a unique genetic make up, history, body, habits and philosophies. Nutritional therapy will be a vital part of your Holistic Heath plan.
At the Wellington Apothecary you will be viewed as the unique individual you are. Herbal and nutritional remedies, as well as dietary and lifestyle recommendations are customised to suit your health concerns, goals and budget.
