Health Practitioner Brands – Discounts and Restrictions

practitioner brandsAs many of our customers already know, Village Green carries many excellent, hard-to-find healthcare practitioner brands of supplements. There is sometimes confusion about pricing and how to purchase these products online. Here is some clarification on questions you may have.

RESTRICTED BRANDS. You will notice that some brands on our Village Green website go to a blank page that says “This manufacturer requires screening of customers. You must apply for access to purchase this Restricted Brand.” These brands include 4 Life, Apex Energetics, Atrium Nutritional, Bezwecken, Biotics Research, Douglas Labs, Klaire Labs, Miller Pharma, Pure Encapsulations, Tyler/Integrative Therapeutics, and Xymogen. Follow these steps to gain access to these brands:

2)    Sign up to gain access to Restricted Practitioner Brands by filling out this brief form. Your application will be processed within 24-48 hours and we will get back with you to confirm your request.

3)    When you shop at myvillagegreen.com, you will need to login to your account to see products for these Restricted Brands. You can navigate to all brands from the Products tab on the home page.

PRICING. Some of our practitioner brands do not require special access to purchase, but they have strict criteria that does not allow us to discount their products on the web. These brands include Metagenics, Thorne, Innate, and Nordic Naturals. You will need to call us at 800-869-9159 so that we can place your order and apply any discounts (or you can shop in-store to receive the discounts).

Supplements for Babies & Toddlers

Yesterday I wrote about making baby food; today I am writing about what supplements a baby should have. I do get quite a few questions regarding this topic, and even yesterday, someone emailed me a question about vitamins for their toddler.

Here is my take on giving supplements to infants and toddlers.

Nursing infants under the age of 6 months should be supplemented with vitamin D3. I have written about this before. If they are nursing well, and are having regular bowel movements, this is the only supplement they need. As a nursing mom, your own diet should consist of fruits, veggies, lean protein and whole grains… plus GOOD FATS!!

Once solids are introduced, nursing usually is curtailed a bit. Bowel movements can become more difficult especially with iron-fortified cereals. I suggest adding a quarter teaspoon of essential fatty acid (Nordic Naturals DHA Jr.) to the cereal to help with bowel movements. Plus it is very important for brain and eye development.

Village Green Apothecary’s Green Initiatives

We wish we could change the world so that our environment was clean and healthy (and our healthcare system was based on a preventative model!). We have not yet been able to accomplish such large goals, but we believe that small steps add up, and that everyone can help make a difference. To that end, we would like our friends and customers to know about some of the eco-friendly initiatives we are doing in our business:

* We purchase 100% wind power through Electric Advisors, from WGES Clean Steps Wind Power. Residential consumers can also sign up to purchase 100% renewable energy at a discounted price through Electric Advisors.

* Our customers can dispose of unwanted and expired drugs using the TakeAwayTM Environmental Return System at our store. This is a safe, environmentally savvy way to keep over-the-counter and prescription medications from ending up in the Chesapeake Bay and other waterways. Learn more, then download a Medicine Disposal Form. Continue reading “Village Green Apothecary’s Green Initiatives”
