Backpod® New and Exclusive self-treatment for neck and upper back pain

Many people have trouble going to sleep or staying asleep all night. Anxiety about an impending event, bladder problems that cause multiple trips to the loo, pain, or being too hot, too full or too stimulated by caffeine can all make sleep elusive. Not sleeping properly is also a common side effect of menopause as oestrogen levels decline. Your pharmacy stocks a great range of natural products to help with sleep and your pharmacist can give you some helpful tips on improving your sleep quality and retraining your body to sleep better. Ingredients such as red date seed (a traditional Chinese medicine), valerian, lemon balm, lactium, hops, lavender and passionflower are available in various combinations to help promote sleep and relieve the stress and anxiety that often accompany insomnia.

Why should I talk to my pharmacist? Vaginal thrush is estimated to effect around 75% of women at some point in their lives. Thankfully, you don’t need to rush off to the doctor every time you get vaginal thrush as treatment is readily available through your pharmacist. Ask your pharmacist about waterbased lubricants, gels that regulate the vaginal pH and probiotics that help recolonize vaginal bacterial flora to prevent thrush from recurring.

Medically designed to stretch out a flexed, hunched upper/middle back, which is what underlies most neck problems. Lying back on it at home or work for a few minutes provides the leverage to effectively stretch the tight, flexed spinal joints and shortened gristle.

Sleepless nights?


Probiotics are live, naturally occurring bacteria that can help maintain your inner health. Research has found them beneficial to treat or prevent irritable bowel syndrome, diarrhoea, colds and flu, bladder infections and eczema in children. Your pharmacist can advise you on the various probiotics available.


To keep your body in optimal health see your Care Chemist pharmacist today for reliable, friendly advice you can trust.
