Why an Apothecary?
Before the invention of insurance companies, the only thing you had to do was walk into an apothecary and explain the ailments you were experiencing; if you did not have a prescription from the doctor then the pharmacist at the apothecary would suggest a tonic, tincture, cream or pill and sell it to you. This simple practice allowed common people to heal themselves when possible. Bella's Apothecary strives to help bring some of the most basic healing strategies back with the intent of helping heal simple ailments without the need for expensive co-pays or relying on pharmaceutical and insurance companies who have made basic care inaccessible for over 27 million people in America as of 2016 by not only making affordable alternative medicines with 100% natural ingredients, but also providing in-depth explanations for using each ingredient an increasing the awareness of healing potential in accessible products. Because all products are made with natural ingredients, custom orders are available for those who have concerns regarding allergies to individual ingredients. In the day and age of rapid antibacterial resistance, using natural ingredients and combating common ailments with alternative medicine also makes prescription antibiotics more effective when introduced into the system (and taken properly) as well as decreases the rate at which antibiotic resistant strains replicate and spread. Having an apothecary available for accessibility to knowledge and products benefits society as a whole when it comes to controlling sicknesses.
