There is a lot of information out there about how to take vitamins and supplements: take this vitamin for this condition, take that supplement for that ailment. But how do you sort through all the information (and misinformation) to determine which supplements are best for you?
An integrative medicine consultation is a great place to start. The pharmacists at CarePro Advance Health will sit down with you one-on-one to discuss your health concerns, your personal wellness goals and your current medications to help you decide which supplements you should and should not be taking.
You can choose between a basic consultation and a comprehensive consultation. If you choose the basic consultation, your pharmacist will discuss in depth with you one of your health concerns, review your current supplement use and provide you with a list of supplement recommendations based on your needs. The basic consultation is a good choice for people who don’t take many prescriptions or supplements, or who have a specific health concern to discuss.
If you choose the comprehensive consultation, you can discuss all of your health conditions with your pharmacist. Your pharmacist will review all of your medications and your current supplement use with you and provide you with a list of recommendations for your unique needs. Some medications deplete nutrients from your body. Your pharmacist can help you select supplements to replace those nutrients. Some supplements can also interact with certain medications- your pharmacist can help you choose supplements that are safe and effective for your unique needs.
Whether you want to improve your cholesterol, get healthier skin or make sure you’re on the path to wellness, an integrative consultation is a great place to start. Your pharmacist will work with you to develop a personalized supplement . You’ll also get 25% off any supplements you purchase the day of your consultation.
