Better Living is committed to provide our patients with the very best herbal supplement products as well as encourage awareness and evolution of herbal therapy throughout the Greater Toronto Area. Since more than 80% of patients utilize herbs to support their health we are proud to dispense MediHerb, a herbal therapy company, to our patients. MediHerb, founded in 1986 and based out of Queensland Australia, aims to provide superior quality herbs to health care professionals and patients. “Our passion at MediHerb is to unlock the healing power of plants by combining the time-honored wisdom of traditional knowledge with sound clinical experience and the rigor of scientific research. This quest can only be attained by the total commitment to quality and continuous improvement, which permeates every aspect of our endeavors”.
MediHerb is considered the first choice for herbal remedies by many health care professionals throughout North America, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa and the United Kingdom. With over 20 naturopathic doctors and master herbalists on-staff, MediHerb’s success lies in that the company recognizes the importance of having health professionals in all key areas of the organization. By working in collaboration with other health care professionals, MediHerb can better understand product effectiveness through patient-practitioner experience and feedback.
MediHerb is one of the biggest purchasers and processors of high quality herbs in Australia and have sought only the highest quality raw materials from around the globe; wherever possible they aim to source organically grown and wildcrafted herbs. Their relationship with other herb growers allows for great technical assistance in the manufacturing of herbal supplements. Medi Herb closely monitors the processes of herb selection, climate, soil, harvest, drying parameters and storage. By working with herb growers in this way, they have been able to increase the level of awareness surrounding herb quality. MediHerb also does everything possible to avoid medicinal plants becoming classified as endangered species and has developed a system of identifying and classifying herbs that are endangered. When wildcrafted herbs become classified as ‘threatened’ by MediHerb, steps are taken immediately to find alternatives to overcome or reduce the threat.
Complementary products are also available through the Metagenics line of supplements available through our Toronto Dispensary. Always be sure to consult with your Naturopathic Doctor or one of our qualified professional staff prior to starting a supplement regimen.
