Natural Chemist

How it All Started

In 2005 Diana was happily working as a community pharmacist in a suburban Sydney pharmacy.

One day a regular patient walked in with a pile of scripts and said he would return once he bought his lunch. The scripts were for blood pressure,cholesterol and acid lowering drugs; the patient walked back in with a pie, a sausage roll and a Coke.

Diana realised then that whilst her training had equipped her to help people manage the common diseases of our age, she wasn’t doing enough to actually help fix the root cause.

She went home that night and enrolled in a nutrition course; and so began her journey towards integrative health care.

Both Online and In Store

After qualifying as a nutritionist, Diana set about incorporating her new skills into her local pharmacy. The response from clients was very positive, including from people who didn’t otherwise associate with being “natural”.

It soon became obvious that servicing customers from a physical store only, meant that we could only help people within a small ring-locked area.

The Natural Chemist website was launched with the goal of working out how we can take the level of service we provide in our physical pharmacies, and deliver it to a geographically-dispersed customer base.

It’s no secret that people want healthcare with the same convenience they get in other parts of their life. We are absolutely delighted that we now get to help people right across Australia and the world; including those in regional and remote areas. Our reach continues to grow and so far we’ve shipped products to 42 different countries.

Helping to grow our industry

Part of our mission is to strengthen the relationship between practitioners and patients. We believe strongly that all patients should be under the direct and ongoing care of a qualified practitioner.

Over the last two years we built our own IT tools to help us manage our patients’ records. We realised the tools could be useful for other professionals and so we’ve made them available for others to use.

Natural Script is a free service for integrative health practitioners including GPs, naturopaths, nutritionists, herbalists and others. It helps to empowers practitioners to grow their business by providing tools to manage their patient records, clinical notes, and prescribing needs.
