Dispensary

Blending science with tradition

My large naturopathic dispensary is a cornerstone of my practice. It is where I measure, blend, bottle, dispense and package traditional herbal medicine prescriptions that have been personalised and tailored to the unique health needs of my patients. 

Blending science with tradition, I draw on current evidence-based practices combined with the time-honoured traditional use of over 135 different herbal medicines to individually compound a herbal prescription that will best support your current state of health, taking care to avoid any possible drug-herb interactions.

Complementary Medicines

I am committed to providing my patients access to safe, high-quality practitioner-grade herbs, supplements and nutraceuticals. Using high quality complementary medicines, especially when using herbal medicines, is of utmost importance. 

Sourcing pharmaceutical-grade herbal tinctures from reputable practitioner companies is vital to ensure therapeutic efficacy. It ensures that all raw materials are thoroughly tested for the correct plant species, there is no adulteration/substitution of the herb with a cheaper plant or poor quality herbs with little therapeutic value used in manufacturing.

All products I dispense are high quality, pharmaceutical grade, prescription-only, complementary medicines listed with the Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA) and comply with good manufacturing practice (GMP). Australia has some of the strictest regulations in the world for complementary medicines – in other countries they are often sold as ‘food’ with little evaluation of the quality and less regulation surrounding production.

Dispensing process and deliveries

If you have an appointment to see me, your tailored herbal prescription (if required) is usually blended in front of you after your appointment, much to the delight of many of my patients. This is so I can discuss the specifics of your individualised herbal formula as I am compounding and blending it for you. Dosage instructions will usually be provided to you via email. Any prescribed herbs or supplements are an additional cost.

If you are after a repeat script and are currently seeing me semi-regularly for appointments, as long as your treatment plan hasn’t changed, and it’s not a new concern, I can dispense to you for up to six months. Once it gets to six months since your last appointment, or you’d like to discuss a new concern, you will need to book in for a review appointment before dispensing as a part of my duty of care to patients is adhering to the TGA dispensing rules and requirements.
