Nature’s Remedies – Southport’s original independent health shop offering the personal touch for a decade

Tucked away on Market Street in Southport’s up and coming market quarter is the colourful Nature’s Remedies.

Originally sited across the other side of the street before moving to its current location almost 10 years ago, the independent shop is run by former nurse Carol Henshaw.

Bringing together a team of holistic therapists and nutritionists it offers much more than just botanical supplements with environmentally friendly skincare, makeup and fill-your-own household products.

Vegetarian, vegan, gluten-free and other ‘free-from’ options brim from the shelves alongside holistic therapy treatments, allergy testing, Reiki and Qi-Gong, gifts and free advice from Carol and her team.

Mum-of-four Carol said: “We used to have a shop in Penwortham and were looking for a new opportunity. Southport was one of the only other towns in the area to not already have a health shop so with its mix of residents and tourists it seemed like the perfect place to open.

“People talk about the health of the high street, well this is health on the high street. We have medical backgrounds and a passion for natural and holistic approaches to health care.

“We listen to people’s questions and ailments and offer advice and support as to what might work for them, often alongside care from their GP.

“As a former nurse and healthcare professionals we keep up to date with all the latest research and legislation so we can offer professional, unbiased and responsible advice and support.”

And over the last decade the shop has gone from strength to strength responding to demand for vegan, eco and other products – something which attracts customers from all over the country.

Carol, added: “As a business you have to be agile and adapt. Like Southport is always reinventing itself as a destination for residents and tourists so are we.

“We’ve seen a huge rise in demand for vegan products by younger people and growing numbers of people looking to pop in and refill their household products like washing up liquid and shampoo.

“As an independent business we’re part of a tight knit network of ‘Southport indies’ so we stock product ranges not available in other shops and they do vice versa so we, and our customers all benefit.”

In response to Covid-19, the shop started taking telephone orders and offering local deliveries to support customers and vulnerable members of the community.
