The use of naturally based formulations is a much safer way of gaining relief compared to the use of drugs.


My office carries a good range of supplements that aid joint support and physical health which are safe and effective. Some are practitioner only and can be more expensive than those that are available elsewhere but are usually more effective, come from reputable suppliers and are backed by good research. 

The information below is a taster of how the right supplements can aid you in the pursuit and maintenance of good health.

Nutrients, Vitamins and Minerals


Nutrients play a vital role in keeping us well, vitamins and minerals offer essential nutrients for many functions of the body.

There are 13 essential vitamins and each benefits our bodies in different ways. Vitamin C is great for the body’s tissues, teeth, bones and skin (you can have grams of Vit C). Vitamin D - especially D3- is a sunshine vitamin and has an important role in bone health and our moods along with other body functions. It is very difficult to get enough Vitamin D from food sources alone so taking a supplement ensures you are getting a sufficient amount. Vitamin E (Tocopherol) aids the heart and the formation of red blood cells. 

Selenium is a mineral which alongside the vitamins aids our health– but only in small amounts – no more than 200 micrograms a day. Selenium helps to regulate blood pressure and strengthen the immune system. Magnesium is another important mineral and is deficient in most of our bodies – over 320 enzymes are reliant on this mineral. Magnesium aids in the digestion of protein, carbohydrates and fat.

We carry a range of other mineral supplements that will enable you to improve your overall health.
