At Matushka Apothecary, we do not diagnose disease or illness. We can offer products to assist in your health journey and to provide a general sense of wellbeing, after advice from your physician has been sought. Should you experience any symptoms, please speak to your physician or health care specialist immediately. We make no healing claims about any of the products offered on this website.
