I live in the Greater Vancouver area. Can I pick up my products at your office?
Answer. In an effort to keep our overhead low and pass the savings on to you, we do
not have a store. Shipping costs in the lower mainland are very inexpensive, and delivery usually takes only one day, so you can receive your products quickly and easily by mail when ordering online.
However if you prefer to preorder and prepay and then pick up your items at either office location later in the week, you would place your order online, pay by credit card and indicate in the 'comment box' that you would like to pick up your products at either our Port Moody clinic address or our Vancouver Wellness Centre address. Once your order is prepared and ready, we will phone you and set up a time later in the week when you can pick up your items at our office. When you mention that you prefer to pick up the items, the shipping fee will not be charged to you.
Do you ship to the United States or Internationally?
Answer. Yes. We ship within Canada, to the U.S., and Internationally.

is your return policy?
Answer. All orders are cancelable
before they are shipped.
In accordance with medical ethics, once a medication has been shipped, we are not permitted to accept it for return and resell it to another customer. However, medications that are damaged or incorrectly ordered by our live operators are eligible for exchange within 30 days of when you receive the package at your home.
Items other than medications are eligible for return/exchange. If, for any reason, you are not thrilled with your purchase of non-medical products, you may return it within 30 days for a full refund. Simply send the item back in its original product packaging. Shipping charges will be refunded if the return/exchange is the result of our error (e.g. damaged item, item incorrectly ordered by our live operators). Before returning any item, please
contact us for a return authorization number.
Your complete satisfaction is our ultimate goal. If there is a problem with your order, please let us know and we will take care of it for you.
are my options if I ordered an 'out-of-stock'
Answer. We aim to ensure that all items listed on our website are in stock and ready to ship. However, there are times when certain items may be temporarily out-of-stock due to manufacturer shortages.
If an item you have ordered is out-of-stock, you will be notified of the expected availability date. At any time after the purchase and before shipment, you can choose to wait for the item to be restocked, choose an alternate item, or cancel your order.
If you ordered more than one item and only part of your order is out-of-stock, we will ship the in-stock items immediately, and ship the out-of-stock item as soon as it becomes available.
What happens if my order gets lost?
Answer. Air Mail is 99.5% reliable. However, in the very rare instance your package is lost, after 45 days, we will file a claim on your behalf with the Post Office. Once your package has been declared "unrecoverable", we will either send you another order or a refund for your purchase.
