At Feeling Healthy we are very selective about the products we prescribe to our clients. We use a brand of supplements called Metagenics which are only available through qualified Healthcare Practitioners. Metagenics are committed to providing supplements that are supported by science and manufactured with the upmost quality to ensure individuals live happier, healthier lives. Metagenics are regulated by the TGA as a medicine, not dietary supplements meaning they have to comply with rigorous audits, manufacturing standards and are can only manufacture supplements using ingredients assessed at levels that are safe by the Therapeutic Goods Administration
There are many inferior products on the market and it can be very complicated for the consumer to know what to look for in supplements. Many supplements are imported from foreign companies or are classed as dietary supplements and do not have to comply with TGA regulations.
Many of the recent items in the media have focused on low dose supplements purchased over the counter.
At Feeling Healthy we work by a ‘minimal prescription’ ethos. This means we want a client to obtain as much of their levels of vitamins, minerals etc from food and a healthy lifestyle and will only prescribe supplements when we feel this is not achievable within a reasonable time frame or feel a client needs additional support.
We have used Metagenics supplements for many years and have seen significant improvements in patients health and wellbeing. We trust in their quality and expertise and are happy using these products with our own children, families and for ourselves.
