Atlas Drug and Nutrition Provides Nutrition Counseling
As a traditional and alternative medicine pharmacy and nutrition center, Atlas Drug and Nutrition provides custom compounding and in-depth personal health counseling to patients in North Bergen and beyond. Among its specialties are bio-identical hormone replacement and nutrition counseling—educating people about the role food plays in their health, and how they can heal their body through simple dietary changes.
“Whether you need help with weight loss or managing your diabetes, or are just feeling a little off, we can help,” says owner and pharmacist Tony Ortiz. “As pharmacists, our extensive training in biochemistry allows us the ability to examine disease. As clinical nutritionists, we can target nutrients and suggest lifestyle changes and ways to balance hormones through diet.”
Compounding pharmacies mix prescriptions that aren’t available in commercially prepared formulations. They can offer them in more convenient forms, such as capsules, liquids, creams, gels, nasal sprays, suppositories and even lollipops. Atlas offers more than 40 custom flavors, which can encourage picky children to take their medication, Ortiz says.
Atlas also provides home delivery, emergency services, durable medical equipment, UPS, USPS mail and sundries.
