WHAT DOES NUTRACEUTICAL MEAN?
The term nutraceutical is derived from “nutrition” and “pharmaceutical”. Nutraceuticals are a pharmaceutical alternative including nutritional supplements, herbs or “food” type products which are often called medical or functional food that provide health benefits and possess multiple therapeutic properties. Nutraceuticals come from plants, animals and microbial sources.

- Improved health

WHAT ARE NUTRACEUTICAL PRODUCTS?
Nutraceuticals include certain natural products such as herbs, vitamins, minerals, phytonutrients, hydrolyzed proteins, pre and probiotics and more. Nutraceuticals also include certain whole foods like fruits and vegetables, fish, meats or any food that provides health benefits above its basic nutritional value.
At Multi-Care Holistic Health Center, we offer many high-quality nutraceutical products that are designed to support the body’s various organs and functions which will aid in increased health. Many of our products are “professional grade” and can only be bought through approved health professionals in practice. We call them “pharmaceutical grade supplements” simply for the powerful positive effects created from taking these high-quality supplements but without all the unwanted side-effects of pharmaceutical medicines. When you come to Multi-Care Holistic Health Center our doctors will carefully and thoroughly review your current symptoms, health history, medications and any recent lab tests to recommend the right products for you and your unique health situation.
WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN NUTRACEUTICAL AND PHARMACEUTICAL?
Nutraceutical is a natural whole food-based product that is used for prevention and offers many health benefits typically with no side effects or serious adverse reactions. Nutraceuticals do not require a medical doctor to write a prescription and are significantly less expensive that pharmaceuticals.
If you are considering trying nutraceuticals be sure to research the source and manufacturer of the product to ensure the highest quality product that has been tested for consistency, potency and purity of their ingredients.
Past studies revealed that many major retail suppliers of herbs and supplements did not actually contain the herb the label stated. Most were filled with cheap fillers like wheat, rice, beans and other non-significant ingredients. These fictious products can cause serious health issues to people who may have allergies to these fillers that were not listed on the labels.
At Multi-Care Holistic Health Center, we only carry products that are manufactured by facilities that have the highest quality ingredients and go through rigorous testing standards and quality control such as Standard Process, MediHerb, Newton Homeopathics, Metagenics and Biotics, just to name a few. Pharmaceutical is a chemical type drug with no nutritional value used for medicinal purposes and must be prescribed by a medical doctor or other approved medical professional. Although they are created to prevent, treat or cure disorders and diseases, pharmaceuticals have side effects and some effects can be very serious including death. According to the CDC, approximately 1.3 million emergency department visits are from adverse reactions to prescribed drugs every year and that doesn’t even include the large amount of deaths each year. Many people have decided to seek other forms of treatment to avoid these types of reactions.
The majority of our patients come to us simply because they are tired of taking pharmaceutical medicines that are causing them ill side effects and are searching for an alternative. If you are considering trying the natural nutraceutical route contact us today to learn more about how we can help you. Our doctors are considered experts in this field and will determine the best products for you and your health concerns.
Dr. Johnson is a Miracle Worker
"Dr. Johnson & his staff may have saved my life. When I came to Multi-Care I was suffering severe fatigue. I was at times extremely irritable and had not slept through the night for months.
I met Dr. Johnson and his staff. They took the time to find out what I was eating, asked a whole battery of questions (actually listened) and took some comprehensive medical tests.
Within a few days of following his wisdom & wellness plan, I started sleeping, my energy was restored and I started having hope that the suffering and horrible symptoms would clear. Indeed they did.
Now I feel great and I have Multi-Care to thank!"
