Botanical Medicine – Not all herbs are created equal
Using plant-based medicine to target health concerns provides an effective and safe way to treat many concerns and conditions. While many conventional drugs or their precursors are derived from plants, there is a fundamental difference between administering a pure chemical and the same chemical in a plant matrix. The synergy of plant constituents lends itself well to treating the root cause of health challenges and Wellpath Clinic is confident when recommending the use of MediHerb products during treatment.
Mediherb is the largest source of botanical medicine in Australia and has set a standard for herbal products that is unsurpassed in the world today. Australia provides a rich resource of healthy soils and wonderful climate for herb growing and many herbs are from local growers. “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”.
MediHerb provides in depth research and development of the active constituents of herbal and their therapeutic applications. Manufacturing through pharmaceutical good manufacturing practices ensure safety and quality of each product.

Metagenics products are manufactured according to strict standards and have undergone on site human clinical trials.
Vitamins & Minerals – Keys to our daily functioning
Our body needs energy to accomplish the thousands of daily functions we perform. Vitamins are required to convert the food we eat into energy. Since we lack the ability to synthesize these critical nutrients in our bodies, we must get them from our foods.
There are two concerns with the above statement. As a society, our dietary habits have changed over the past couple of generations. The most common diet consists of too much fat, too much sugar, not enough fiber and not enough fresh fruits and vegetables. We eat plenty of calories, however, they are often “empty” calories, meaning they have low levels of essential vitamins and minerals.
Another factor is high stress found in today’s fast paced and busy life. The greater the external stress, the higher the nutritional demands on the body. Eating a poor quality diet robs you of the nutritional factors necessary to help you stay healthy.
Many nutritional researchers point the rising problems of obesity, diabetes, heart disease and other diseases of modern society as evidence of the deteriorating quality of the diet most people consume.
Vitamins are needed for a few important functions:
- Vitamins are needed for the enzymes in our bodies to do their job.
- Vitamins are antioxidants, protecting our cells from free radicals and damage.
- Some vitamins, such as Vitamin D, act as pro-hormones. Vitamin D can function as a hormone to facilitate calcium uptake and utilization.
Minerals have many essential roles, functioning primarily through two mechanisms:
- Minerals are required for building in the body, such as bones and tissue.
- Minerals are needed for regulating a wide variety of systems such as the beating of your heart, clotting of your blood.
- Minerals help carry out many delicate life processes.
Taking a daily supplement does not replace eating a well balanced, nutrient dense diet and the two should be assessed on an individual basis used in combination to achieve sustainable wellness. Wellpath Clinic trusts the quality and science of Metagenics, Douglas Laboratories, Nutritional Fundamentals for Health and Vital Nutrients to support a healthy body.
Essential Fatty Acids – Fundamental to our cellular health
Omega 3′s have been a topic of great discussion over the past while. Scientific literature supports the usage and role of Omega 3 as valuable for cardiovascular health, children’s health and development, female health and reproduction, diabetes, immune health, joint and tissue inflammation and mental and neurological health. Omega 3’s that provide the therapeutic effects through two active constituents are Eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and Docosahexaenoic acid (DHA). Ensuring daily therapeutic dosing can aid a current health regime, but support longevity and sustainable wellness.
There are many Fish Oil products currently on the market and Wellpath Clinic has surveyed many of them in search of the highest quality. Nordic Naturals and Metagenics provide superior products with combinations EPA/DHA ratios to best target individual concerns. These lines carry ultra-pure and ultra-refined fish oil that meets the highest standard of quality.
