Alternative therapies encompass any healing practice that does not fall within the realm of conventional medicine.
Many alternative therapies share common characteristics, including a focus on individualizing treatments, treating the whole person, promoting self-care and self-healing, recognizing the spiritual nature of each individual and focusing on good nutrition and preventive practices.
Kerrisdale Pharmacy supports many alternative therapy choices. We currently carry a selection of essential oils, herbal tinctures and homeopathic preparations as well as offering holistic nutrition services.
Forms of alternative medicine that are biologically active can be dangerous even when used in conjunction with conventional medicine. Your physician or health care practitioner can and should be advised of any therapies that you are employing. Please continue to seek the medical care of a licensed physician or health care practitioner.
