There should be no compromise when it comes to your health. The advice you listen to needs to be from professionals, and the products you’re recommended need to meet the highest of standards. Chris Torr of the Health for Life stores and the Community Health Stores (CHS) network, shares the advantages of choosing a professional natural health retailer.
Chris says our customers always come first. “We look to develop a long-term relationship, to help you make the right choices and get the best results from your supplement programme.”
“Our business model is unique, we focus on building the business from the customer up, rather than the brand down.”
“Our skills as professional natural health retailers is to work with you to understand your needs, and then use our knowledge to inform you about the products we have available. We are constantly refining our products, so they are more unique and cost-effective.”
Value for money
Natural health products can be purchased from many places, but it’s often not the best choice to select products based on price or in the absence of advice from a professional natural health retailer.
“The market is flooded with product that is made to meet a price point, rather than a performance standard,” Chris explains. “When buying products based on price alone there is the inevitable outcome the product may have been manufactured using the lowest quality assurance and standard of packaging.”
To get the best results, invest in quality products and ranges which are formulated to achieve a particular outcome, and which have evidence of their effectiveness.
CHS really are ‘community’ health stores, locally owned and operated, and with connections to the people
and groups which support them. Every store does their bit to support their local community.
“Our stores are being developed as destinations,” says Chris. “We’re running special events and services for customers frequently… The best way to find out these is to build a strong relationship with your local store.”
The most popular service offered at our stores is product advice and on-the-spot consultations with our team. Other services we offer include naturopaths, nutrition experts, qualified nurses, herbalists, beauty therapists
and massage therapists.
Some people are just looking to maintain their health, while others have specific issues to address, according to Chris. One thing that can help immensely with a consultation is a professional diagnosis from a Health Practitioner, which means there’s a better understanding of the customer’s needs.
“The best results come when people are prepared to put themselves in the driver’s seat and take responsibility for their own health.”
