Our Mission


In 1956, we started as a Liggett-Rexall Pharmacy.  In 1970, we transitioned to a full-service health food store.  The Manchester Parkade Health Shoppe was founded by Michael Dworkin, PD, CCN (1928-2017), a Connecticut Certified Clinical Nutritionist and Registered Pharmacist. We carry on his mission to educate our customers about nutrition & healthy lifestyle options. We also offer an abundance of affordable dietary supplements, organic produce, natural food & other products to improve your quality of life & longevity.

Empowering You With Knowledge

The late Dr. Mike Dworkin was truly an icon of “nutritional medicine” in the town of Manchester. He was a man that was years ahead of his time. His knowledge of healthy eating, organic food and targeted nutritional supplements was truly amazing. I believe he helped many people in reducing their pain and suffering when chronic disease, aging and environmental toxicities came into their life. Even when Mike was in his early 80’s, I saw him in the audience at an American College of Nutrition conference. He was a man that walked his talk even to the end of his life. I will miss the tremendous passion he had in the nutritional field.

Nutrition Consultations

As a Nutrition Consultant and Certified Lifestyle Educator, I value education and empowering people with knowledge to give them the ability to improve their quality of life. To me, you aren’t just another customer in my shop. I greet you as an individual, recognizing that you may be suffering from an acute or chronic condition, and possibly one that has not been diagnosed despite numerous medical appointments, evaluations, and lab tests. Without formally diagnosing, I thoroughly review your current medical status and explore potential causes, including your medical history, blood work, and lifestyle.  I suggest evidence-based remedies (many time-tested in my father’s clinical nutrition practice for over 20+ years) and offer referrals when appropriate. I welcome follow-up conversations by appointment, in our store, or by text or email, to hear about your progress toward wellness.
