Remedys Nutrition and Apothecary (Key Largo)
At Remedy’s we are a family of nutritionists, herbalists, nurses and other healthcare professionals working together to bring our clients the best of the traditional medicinal world and today’s proven science. Our proprietary supplements are elaborated on the basis of traditional herbal wisdom and clinical studies.
Our name has been “Remedy’s” for decades for a number of reasons. The first owner George was a Dietician who liked the name for its practical appeal. George specialized in the field of detecting and removing toxic metals from the body via Tissue Mineral Analysis (also known as hair analysis) and oral chelation. He had his own radio show and spoke at natural health conventions; today, he is still instructs on the radio. After thirty-two years, George wanted to retire and asked two of his long-time clients to carry on his tradition. He mentored the new owners and imparted the vast wealth of knowledge he had accumulated.
The present owners kept the name “Remedy’s” for two reasons. First, the name implies a solution to a problem. In addition, a grandmother who was an herbalist and responsible for the owner’s love of herbs was named Remedy's. She was born in Spain in the late 1890’s, when wolves still roamed the woods in Spain's wild north shores.
Her granddaughter learned about European herbs from Remedy's, and about Caribbean Taino Indian remedies from her mother. When Gene and Maria married, Gene brought his own rich history of herbal healing from his grandfather, Charles Blade, of Cherokee descent. Gene’s family history was also rich in a different sort of healing conventional mainstream medicine. Gene’s mother Jeneane is a nurse, daughter of a pharmacist and a nurse; she is featured prominently in the Who’s Who of Nursing in America.
Remedy’s reflects the best of European, Caribbean and Native American herbal traditions supported by a family tradition in conventional mainstream medicine. This eclectic mix provides our clients with the best of all worlds. For clients seeking an alternative choice or those who prefer the inclusion of mainstream medicine along with their alternative choices, Remedy’s Nutrition is the informed solution.
