Finlandia is your one-stop health shop for all your health needs.
With the modern world looking for education on preventative and alternative medicine, Finlandia strives to be a place for all your health needs. We offer services ranging from professional consultations to general questions about supplements, herbal medicine, and pharmaceuticals.
The vision of Finlandia Pharmacy and Natural Health Centre was founded in 1974 by pharmacist Harlan Lahti. To this day, Harlan’s values are evident in our retail store and our health team. Finlandia believes in building good relationships with customers… building healthful, helpful relationships through great customer service.
Bridging the world of western and alternative medicine.
Finlandia recognizes that prescription medications are an important method of treating disease, particularly when the situation is acute (to this end, we maintain a full service medical/compounding pharmacy).
However, Finlandia also recognizes that support with natural preventive agents and remedies is more attuned to nature’s plan. This is why Finlandia retains a fully staffed retail floor with qualified health professionals capable of answering questions and educating our customers on the products we carry.
Our product development team ensures that our store carries quality supplements and a variety of products that can fit everyone’s lifestyle. If you have any specific needs, questions, or concerns, do not hesitate to give us a call at 604.733.5323!
