Asheville, North Carolina (PRWEB) February 5, 2009
A team of naturopathic doctors in Asheville, NC recently launched an online store to provide patients and the general public with access to natural supplements and homeopathic medicine. As an extension of the practice, the naturopathic physicians at Lewis Family Natural Health created http://www.LewisNaturalStore.com with patient health, affordability and convenience in mind.
All homeopathic remedies, supplements and vitamins have been chosen specifically by Dr. Eric Lewis and Dr. Kristina Lewis to ensure quality, potency and safety. "Quality control of supplements, vitamins and homeopathic medicines is a major issue in the field of natural health care," states Dr. Eric Lewis, "We believe everyone should have access to natural health products that are safe, effective, and produce results."
According to the National Center for Complementary and Alternative Medicine in Maryland, the Food and Drug Administration regulates supplements as food, making it easier to manufacture and sell supplements without proper quality control. Studies on safety, effectiveness or quality are not required. Manufacturers must meet the requirements of the FDA's Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP) for food, but GMP's do not dictate Standard Operating Procedures (SOP), therefore supplements can contain pesticides, heavy metals, prescription drugs and other contaminates.
"The best way to choose safe supplements and vitamins that work is to consult a naturopathic doctor or health professional," says Dr. Eric Lewis, "The natural health manufacturers that provide our supplements and naturopathic remedies sell only to medical or holistic doctors and have product quality verified by a third party."
The design of http://www.LewisNaturalStore.com supports two audiences. The general public will find exceptional quality multi vitamins, homeopathic remedies and fish oils. "Even if you are not a patient, we want to give you the opportunity to buy these products," Dr. Eric continues. Current patients receive passwords to a protected area, which displays supplements and therapies recommended for various conditions.
Since the launch of the online store, Dr. Kristina and Dr. Eric Lewis have sought to address some everyday health problems. Store visitors can buy supplements and natural therapies to support all natural weight loss and body detox, as well as treat common allergies, low energy, digestive imbalances, anxiety, depression and more. Popular natural health solutions such as Fish Oil and Green Powders are some of the store's most exciting resources. For more information visit http://www.LewisNaturalStore.com.
