We integrate herbal and homeopathic medicine into orthodox medicine, instead of replacing orthodox medicine with "alternatives". 

Complementary and alternative medicine (CAM) is a term used to describe a diverse group of healing systems that are not presently considered to be part of mainstream medicine. The goal of conventional medicine is to locate the physical source of a particular disease and then remove it. For example, if a patient has some sort of infection, a conventional doctor would probably prescribe a specific antibiotic to kill the invading bacteria. CAM practitioners, on the other hand, take a more "holistic" approach to healthcare. They believe that health and disease involve a complex interaction of physical, spiritual, mental, emotional, genetic, environmental, and social factors. In order to treat a disease or simply promote good health, CAM practitioners treat the whole body by taking all of these factors into account.

What makes us different from any other health food store?

We are the natural alternative medicine experts. We have 4 pharmacists on hand to provide expert advice on herbs, vitamins, and natural supplements. We can give you honest professional advice as to whether or not the supplement that you are taking is OK to take with your medications. We are not here to sell you a natural product; we are here to help you in choosing a natural product that is safe and appropriate for you. Every day we tell patients to not buy a certain supplement because of possible drug interactions or because there is not enough evidence that the product is safe for you. We are knowledgeable about the products we carry and will not steer you wrong when it comes to safety or effectiveness. Pharmacists are the medication experts; pharmacists at Cloverdale Wellness are also the natural medicine experts. We carry professional natural product lines of the highest standards (e.g. Metagenics, Thorne, BioMed, etc.) that follow Good Manufacturing Practices, not found in traditional health food stores or pharmacies. You should feel completely at ease when picking a natural product/supplement so talk to our experts that are not willing to sacrifice your health for the sake of a sale. Primum non nocere (“First, do no harm”).


WHAT IS HOMEOPATHY?
(Definition from Wikipedia)

Homeopathy (also homœopathy or homoeopathy) is a form of alternative medicine first defined by Samuel Hahnemann in the 18th century. Homeopathic practitioners contend that an ill person can be treated using a substance that can produce, in a healthy person, symptoms similar to those of the illness. According to homeopaths, serial dilution, with shaking between each dilution, removes the toxic effects of the remedy while the qualities of the substance are retained by the diluent (water, sugar, or alcohol). The end product is often so diluted that materially it is indistinguishable from pure water, sugar or alcohol. Practitioners select treatments according to a patient consultation that explores the physical and psychological state of the patient, both of which are considered important to selecting the remedy.

Homeopathic medicine has never been proven by modern science, but it has been used in people and animals with definite benefits that cannot be explained by placebo effect. Homeopathic medicine is not known to interact with other medicines and is by and large free of side effects.
