Bridging the Gap Between Food and Pharmacy

Martin’s Pharmacies are committed to providing healthcare which includes traditional, complementary and alternative treatment and prevention options. While our medical system is largely a system of disease and symptom management, it is important we navigate towards a system which is based on health promotion, treatment and disease prevention.

It’s important to recognize that one’s diet and choices of food are cornerstones to living a healthy life. Nutrition is critical. Our bodies flourish on vitamins, minerals, enzymes, amino acids and antioxidants. Many people do not realize that the medications they take can actually lead to nutritional depletions. For this reason, the pharmacy counter is actually one of your best resources if you wish to stay nutritionally relevant, and to find out what medications are draining what nutrients.

There are many complementary alternatives that can work with, or in lieu of, medication therapy. It’s important, though, to understand how natural and conventional medicine can work together. Martin’s Pharmacies have incorporated a line of nutritional supplements backed by science and outcome-based results. These supplements are hypoallergenic, and free of the “toxic tagalongs” that often find their way into many other nutritional supplements.
