Welcome to North Suburban Wellness’s Natural Apothecary!
Our apothecary offers a wide array of high-quality natural products, including pharmaceutical-grade nutritional supplements (most available only from health care practitioners), therapeutic-grade essential oils, Chinese and Western herbs, flower essences, natural body care products, physical therapy tools and books.

How do you know you’re getting a quality natural supplement?
Purchasing nutritional products can be extremely confusing and finding both safe and effective nutritional support is harder than it sounds.

We select our product from only companies that meet or exceed industry standards for quality and safety, with stringent raw material selection and extensive testing for purity. These exceptional products are manufactured in facilities certified for Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP) to further ensure clinical reliability and optimal patient outcomes. GMP certification means that independent inspectors validate adherence to GMP standards.

As a customer of the Natural Apothecary, you’ll be purchasing natural supplements that meet and exceed these high standards. It’s this commitment to quality, along with direct access to our professional and knowledgeable staff that sets our store apart from the other retailers.

Can I use my Health Savings Account (HSA) to pay for supplements?
Yes. Dietary supplements qualify for HSA/FSA reimbursement.

What are HSA/FSA accounts?
HSA:  Health Savings Account – An account set up for medical expenses not covered by a high deductible medical plan.  Money placed in this account also reduces taxable income.

FSA:  Flexible Savings Account – This account allows for the setting aside of pre-tax dollars for health reimbursement with reducing taxable income.

How it works:
1.  Patients visit their prescribing healthcare professional
2.  A letter is provided that includes a diagnosis, recommmendation of specific supplements for a health condition, and the healthcare professional’s signature.
3.  HSA Account Holders will purchase supplements with an HSA “debit” card or HSA check.  FSA Account Holders will submit proof of payment and the letter provided to their FSA adminstrator for reimbursement.

Which expenses are eligible for HSA/FSA reimbursement?

Are all dietary supplements eligible for reimbursement?
