Analyzing such supplements supported by scientific research and the clients individual needs, a team of highly trained and experienced experts (e.g. pharmacist, naturopath, nutritionist) are available for professional advice about day to day health concerns (e.g. coughs, colds), weightloss & dieting programs, anti-aging concepts and more, thus enabling you to create your optimal individual health & wellness planning.
Nutricare came about as a result of an interest in "nutritional medicine" by pharmacist Mike Poland some 20 years ago. That interest was born due to personal reasons when it was recommended that he take glucosamine as a nutritional supplement to reduce his reliance on anti-inflammatories and analgesics for damaged joints due to previous injuries. Nutricare products support rather than compete with modern medicines. One thing led to another and slowly but surely his interest grew to the point where today it has become the major focus in his professional life. Of course, in the intervening years nutritional medicine has gone from being "fringe" to mainstream today. Whereas supplementation was discouraged 20 years- even 5 years ago, today it is acknowledged and encouraged by the orthodox medical and nutritional establishment. Naturopathic, nutritional and herbal medicine is now mainstream. Many doctors and other health professionals now use nutritional medicine as an everyday tool to improve the health status of their patients. Being a pharmacist, Mike is in an ideal position to respond to the wishes and needs of the public. His training and experience gives him an insight into some of the side effects modern medicines can have and where nutritional supplements and diet can replenish the depletion caused by such medicines. Supplements, if taken on a regular basis, can also reduce the dependency on conventional synthetic medicines. The provision of vitamins, minerals, trace elements and essential fatty acids or other nutritional supplements play an important part in this process. Nutricare's concern and commitment is to support clients in three ways; to overcome nutrient depletion; to benefit from a regime of preventative health through dietary, naturopathic, medical and pharmaceutical advice, and through supplementation.
