THRIVE with Whole-istic Healing Co.
EPISODE 11- How can a PHARMACIST HELP ME?
This week’s episode is ALL about WHAT a PHARMACIST does within their SCOPE of PRACTICE and how they can help you!
I believe that we are an underutilised resource within the health care industry and I run through WHAT is possible for us to do…and not just putting a label on a box!
I have written a blog article about when to speak to a pharmacist or doctor, which you can read below at; https://wholeistichealingco.com/synergy-and-bringing-together-of-eastern-and-western-paradigms-for-women-2/
