Philip Weeks, Master Herbalist, traditional Acupuncturist and expert on natural health, will be joining Planet Health, a leading distributor and marketer of innovative premium natural health products, at the Natural & Organics Products Europe show this year. The event will be taking place at the Olympia Exhibition Centre , London and Philip will be on hand at the Planet Health stand, 4013, on Sunday 7 April, for consultations, meetings with journalists and to offer retailers advice relating to products best suitable for their consumers.

Philip established ‘The Philip Weeks’ clinic after qualifying as a Master Herbalist in 1999. Whilst seeing patients in his hometown, Hereford, he also trained at the college of Integrated Chinese medicine in Reading and obtained his licence in acupuncture in 2005. Philip has patients in Hereford and also works in a Harley Street clinic seeing patients from all around the world. He has helped patients with a huge variety of health disorders ranging from acne to more serious conditions.

This year’s Natural & Organic Products Europe will see Planet Health capitalise on their success in 2012, with the launch of Lifestream High Phycocyanin Spirulina Blue and Lifestream V-Omega (the new Omega 3 Innovation), Qsilica ‘Healthy Bones Formula’ as well as Qsilica ‘One-a-Day’ tablets.

Philip is a strong supporter of Planet Health’s products, “Qsilica is a unique product, offering silica in a highly bio-available and absorbable form.

Silica needs to be present in the body for the formation of health connective tissue, hair and nails.

A deficiency of silica can result in brittle and flaky nails.

I can usually detect whether women have enough silica in their body as they will have thick, healthy and shiny hair.”

Planet Health’s new launches:

  • Lifestream High Phycocyanin Spirulina Blue
    High in bioavailable Phycocyanin, Vitamin B3, GLA and Zeaxanthin; the perfect Spirulina for people under increased stress, immune compromised or just needing extra energy.
  • Lifestream V-Omega
    The vegetarian/vegan friendly and sustainable alternative to fish oil. Supports brain function, mental clarity & focus, cardiovascular health, joint health & mobility, healthy bones and calcium absorption.
  • Qsilica Healthy Bones Formula
    Formulated to assist and promote the bioavalability, this advanced calcium formula also contains silica, magnesium, Vitamin D and Vitamin K for healthy bones.
  • Qsilica ‘One-a-Day’ tablets
    An advanced formula for Healthy, Skin, Hair & Nails.
  • Qsilica PAW PAW RESCUE Ointment
    A 100% natural multi-purpose nourishing balm for chapped lips, skin irritations and rashes.

Planet Health’s founder Peter Harwood says, “We are excited to be returning to the Natural & Organics Europe show this year. It is especially exciting to have Philip Weeks join us as he is a long standing ambassador of our products and we are excited to offer retailers the opportunity to learn from his expertise.”  

Planet Health will also be showcasing their successful brands: Australian Bush Flower Essences range, the award winning Qsilica skincare products and supplements, and Lifestream premium superfoods and Watson & Son ‘Black Label’ Manuka Honey.
