Brisbane’s healthcare market set to expand with a new holistic pharmacy brand

  • Written by Georgie Rowlands


Brisbane will soon be home to two innovative new healthcare destinations with the launch of new holistic pharmacy brand Wholehealth Pharmacy and Healthfoods, which is set to shake up the local health market in Toowong and West End.
Developed by two Cairns pharmacist brothers with store design by Harry Nina, the concept features Queensland’s largest and widest range of both pharmacy and organic products and introduces a holistic approach to healthcare and pharmacy.
Wholehealth Pharmacy and Healthfoods founder Frank Pappalardo, says the new stores are the natural evolution of pharmacy and meet a growing demand for natural and holistic health solutions.
“As a pharmacist, I’m very passionate about the role pharmacy plays in community healthcare. Pharmacy has always focused on providing our patients with medication advice and a variety of health services, but we could see there was an even bigger role we could play to improve health outcomes by also providing advice and products to help our patients lead healthier lifestyles,” said Mr Pappalardo.
“Wholehealth Pharmacy and Healthfoods was developed to support our customers with holistic, whole health solutions through advice on meal plans, nutraceuticals, natural and organic products, and more.”
With grand openings on Friday 15 June in Toowong and Saturday 16 June in West End, the pharmacies additional services include Australian Sport Nutrition and Naked Foods.
Toowong Wholehealth Pharmacy and Healthfoods also has plans to include a cafe in coming months, while West End Wholehealth Pharmacy and Healthfoods also includes JustBeSpace, a yoga, wellness and meditation studio and has plans to incorporate a café and medical practice in the future.
The official grand openings will include cooking demonstrations, taste testings, lucky door prizes, sample bags, mini massage sessions and the chance to enter a draw to win a $500 gift voucher for the stores.
“Wholehealth opens up an exciting new market for Brisbane, and we are very excited to bring this healthcare initiative to the community.”
