Why invest in Natural Medicines from your Healthcare Practitioner?


12Your Healthcare Practitioner's job is to have you feeling better as quickly as possible and to prevent health problems from reoccurring. If you want to achieve a new state of wellbeing, you and your Practitioner must not only treat the symptoms, but also the underlying cause of your disease or condition. There is not a one size fits all here. We treat you as an individual and go to great lengths to ensure the supplements and herbal medicines and products prescribed are specific to your needs. That's why many of the programs your practitioner prescribes may involve dietary and lifestyle changes and the use of Natural Medicines. Combined, they achieve a greater effect.

Why we use Metagenics

By prescribing the Metagenics range of Natural Medicines your Practitioner is recommending the highest quality and effective products available.

That's why Metagenics is the number one provider of Natural Medicines in Australia and New Zealand.

Highest Quality Raw Materials
The effectiveness of a Natural Medicine is directly proportional to the quality and strength of its raw materials. Metagenics uses only the purest ingredients and conducts assays to confirm that the raw materials purity, quality and efficacy..

Superior Manufacturing Processes
The Australian Metagenics head office consists of a $24 million purpose built office, manufacturing and testing facility located in Brisbane. This state-of-the-art investment is a TGA (Therapeutic Goods Administration) and GMP (Good Manufacturing Practice) approved site, which allows the future development and growth of Metagenics within the industry. The manufacturing processes used by Metagenics are some of the best in the world. Avoiding the use of excess heat, moisture and compaction, which can reduce the biological activity of many nutrients and herbs, Metagenics uses only natural non-reactive vegetable gums and cellulose. Also, Metagenics do not use the common reactive binders, fillers and synthetic additives which can cause adverse reactions and side effects.

Storage of raw materials and finished product is also of vital importance, as many Natural Medicines are damaged or destroyed by temperatures above 25°C. That's why all Metagenics' production and warehouse facilities are either air-conditioned or refrigerated. This ensures that the products you receive are the best. ]

Chinese Herbs:
Herbal medicine itself is a powerful method of healing. Western drugs often control symptoms, but do not alter the disease process (e.g. antibiotics eliminate bacteria but do not improve a person's resistance to infection. Chinese herbal medicine, when practiced as part of TCM, is based on an individualized pattern diagnosis as well as a disease diagnosis. This means you receive a custom written herbal prescription designed to treat both the symptom or disease and also your individual pattern. Such a TCM pattern is made up of a person's signs and symptoms as well as their emotional temperament and bodily constitution. In other words, Chinese herbal medicine treats the underlying condition as defined by traditional diagnosis. Chinese herbal remedies are often sophisticated and complex mixtures that were developed for organ imbalances and disease support. Those most often used today have been carefully formulated to have minimal side effects. 

Chinese Herbal formulas are available in a variety of forms: crude herbs to be boiled into tea, liquid bottled extracts, and ground herbs packaged in pills, and powders. Herbs, more like foods than drugs, can supplement our diet and fortify our constitution as well as prevent or remedy ailments. Sometimes long-term use of herbs is desirable whereas extended use of pharmaceuticals would not be healthy.
