“There has been a lot of talk in the media about vitamins and supplements being a waste of time, how do I know what you prescribe me is going to work?”

At Feeling Healthy we are very selective about the products we prescribe to our clients. We use a brand of supplements called Metagenics which are only available through qualified Healthcare Practitioners. Metagenics are committed to providing supplements that are supported by science and manufactured with the upmost quality to ensure individuals live happier, healthier lives. Metagenics are regulated by the TGA as a medicine, not dietary supplements meaning they have to comply with rigorous audits, manufacturing standards and are can only manufacture supplements using ingredients assessed at levels that are safe by the Therapeutic Goods Administration

Metagenics products

  • Are scientific and clinically researched
  • Provide therapeutic levels of vitamins, minerals and herbs in correct ratios for maximum absorption by the body
  • Use only the highest quality ingredients and raw materials
  • Go through rigorous quality testing at their labs in Brisbane
  • Are free from heavy metals and pesticide residue
  • Are packaged with biodegradable materials and recycled paper

There are many inferior products on the market and it can be very complicated for the consumer to know what to look for in supplements. Many supplements are imported from foreign companies or are classed as dietary supplements and  do not have to comply with TGA regulations.

Many of the recent items in the media have focused on low dose supplements purchased over the counter.

At Feeling Healthy we work by a ‘minimal prescription’ ethos. This means we want a client to obtain as much of their levels of vitamins, minerals etc from food and a healthy lifestyle and will only prescribe supplements when we feel this is not achievable within a reasonable time frame or feel a client needs additional support.

We have used Metagenics supplements for many years and have seen significant improvements in patients health and wellbeing. We trust in their quality and expertise and are happy using these products with our own children, families and for ourselves.

If you are concerned about anything you see in the media, please do not hesitate to contact us.
