Gut Restore 1

Very often, at Wellsford Pharmacy we will offer patients the opportunity to purchase a Probiotic with a broad spectrum Antibiotic prescription. The good bacteria contained within the probiotic may negate some of the negative effects that the antibiotic may have on your digestive system (eg: diarrhoea), genital system (thrush prevention), and general immunity.

We are firm believers in supporting preventative health rather than needing to treat unwanted side effects of drugs. Broad spectrum antibiotics are proven to cause diarrhoea in 20% of patients, which rises alarmingly, to 40% in children.  Sandersons Gut Restore is a great tasting probiotic with a well researched strain of a good bacteria, Bifobacterium animalis lactis BB12. It can be used from infancy (as it may be chewed or sucked)through  to the elderly and comes in a 14 tablet pack that is ideal for preventative treatment with a 7  day antibiotic script; take one a day for 7 days and carry on for 7  more days once finished your antibiotic.    It comes at a very affordable price as well,  just $14.99.

There has been a huge amount of research into specific strains of Probiotics and the incredibly important role they play in overall maintenance of well-being. We could say a lot more… would you like more information?  Please come and ask us.

Features

Ergonomically shaped soft touch handle.
Specially designed Micraluminaâ„¢ roller head.

How it works

The battery operated device spins the specially designed Micraluminaâ„¢ roller at high speed to gently buff away rough, hard skin.
How to use it

1. Remove the protective roller cover before use.
2. Ensure that the roller head is securely inserted into the unit. Do not use without the roller head attached.
3. Turn on the unit by twisting the silver ring to the left and gently glide the roller head over hard skin and the dead skin will gradually exfoliate. Use only on dry skin. Do not press too hard, or the unit will stop.
4. Turn off and check if you have achieved the softness you desire. If not, turn on and repeat until the level of smoothness is obtained.

Warning: Do not use in the same area for more than 3-4 seconds at a time. Stop if skin becomes sore or inflamed.
5. Once your feet are starting to resemble smooth, happy feet again, breathe a sign of relief.
6. Turn the unit off by twisting the silver ring to the right.
7. Wipe or rinse feet to remove excess dead skin particles.
8. Thoroughly dry feet.
9. Apply moisturiser and massage into your fabulously smooth feet!

Antihistamines

Histamine reactions are commonly associated with Pollens, Dust and Insect bites & stings. Foods and other substances that come into contact can also cause reactions resulting in Itchiness, rashes, nasal or eye discharges & usually swelling. Taking an Antihistamine stops the cells releasing Histamine, thereby stopping the itchy irritation. Some antihistamines can be taken with other medications, and can be taken long term, alternatively a course of a corticosteroid nasal spray can prevent symptoms developing or treat itchy runny noses. Check with our trained staff which are the best treatments for you.

Fragrance Week 17th – 22nd Sept

Amazing Specials all week starting the 10th of September. All Premium & Lifestyle fragrances  will be a minimum of 15% off for this week only. Selected fragrances will be up to 50% off! Our staff are trained to help you choose from our many new fragrances or classics. Let us know what you have enjoyed in the past and we can show you  what you would probably like. We also know a how to make a fragrance last on your skin longer for those people that find that the scent fades quickly.

Fragrances generally have 3 ‘notes’. The top note dries off the quickest, developing into the mid notes, & then as the fragrance settles on your skin the base notes will develop. Don’t smell a fragrance until it dries as all you will smell is the alcohol fixative. Wait for it to completely dry and don’t rub the area. This is likened to crushing the delicate petals of a flower which crushes the scent.

Here’s some ways of describing fragrance: Floral, Woody,  Oriental, Green, Fruity and Fresh.
