  • Elevit Iodine Pregnancy 100 Tablets

    $89.99 $82.99

    Esther’s counselling tips:

    • As a mother I chose to take Elevit with Iodine as it is formulated to provide the mother and baby with the best possible nutritional support alongside a well balanced diet 
    • It contains Iodine which has been scientifically shown to reduce the chance of neural tube defects such as Spina Bifida and is formulated in a convenient one-a-day tablet designed to be taken throughout the pregnancy period 
    • Pregnant women also have a higher chance of becoming iron deficient and therefore Elevit additionally contains iron to supplement this
    • Take this product during the pregnancy term and then switch to Elevit Breastfeeding once baby is born to continue to provide added nutrition in addition to a well balanced diet

    • It is important to continue applying Daktozin for 7 days after the condition has improved to make sure the fungal infection has resolved

  • Laevolac (lactulose) Syrup 500mL

    $10.99 $9.99

    Esther’s counselling tips:

    • Lactulose syrup is a mild laxative that acts by drawing water into the bowel so that it gently softens the stool 
    • Sometimes the medication can take a little while until it takes effect (up to 48 hours)
    • The dose of lactulose varies in people and just because you haven’t had an immediate effect from the product doesn’t mean it isn’t working – just try taking a larger volume of liquid and then taper the dose back once constipation is relieved
    • Lactulose needs water to work, therefore I always recommend people take it with a large glass of water
    • SAFE to use in pregnancy or breastfeeding

    • It is important to treat everyone in the family for worms, even if some people aren’t showing any symptoms
    • The chocolate squares are easy to give to children as they are chewable and taste great
    • Worms are generally caused by poor hand hygiene so make sure to get your children (and partner) to thoroughly wash their hands, especially before eating, as worms are transferred through the faecal-oral route

    • This is a great supplement to take alongside Swisse cranberry capsules, however if you find that your symptoms haven’t improved within 48 hours (after drinking lots of water, taking cranberry capsules and using Ural) then give us a call on 0800 NZ PHCY regarding a consultation for the UTI antibiotic Trimethoprim

    • Inner Health Kids Probiotic Powder is a probiotic which may help to maintain a healthy digestive function, which could also be useful in children with the symptoms of bloating, gas or diarrhoea

  • Spatone Liquid Iron Supplement 28 Sachets

    $34.99

    Esther’s counselling tips:

    • Iron is an essential component in our red blood cells which helps them to transport oxygen around the body
    • You can become iron deficient through imbalances in the diet, during pregnancy or menstruation
    • When you are low in iron the body has a diminished capacity to transport oxygen around the body and therefore you feel sluggish and fatigued
    • Spatone contains iron in a liquid sachet which is more efficiently absorbed compared to tablet forms
    • Therefore this increases the amount of iron absorbed into the body and reduces the incidence of side effects such as constipation
    • Some people find that Spatone sachets aren’t particularly flavoursome and what I recommend is try combining it with juice to mask the taste
    • Iron isn’t recommended to be taken at the same time as other medications, multivitamins or antacids
    • SAFE to be taken in pregnancy or breastfeeding

  • Cranclense Effervescent Tablets 20s

    $17.99

    Esther’s counselling tips:

    • Cranberries have been shown to help prevent the adherence of E. Coli to the bladder wall (which is the bacteria that causes urinary tract infections)
    • Crancleanse acts as a powerful antioxidant which may ease the stinging sensation when you urinate and helps to flush out the bacteria in your bladder
    • However if you find that your symptoms haven’t improved within 48 hours after drinking lots of water and taking Crancleanse then give us a call on 0800 NZ PHCY regarding a consultation for the UTI antibiotic Trimethoprim
    • NOT to be taken in pregnancy or breastfeeding, unless recommended by a doctor
