I am a Graduate of the St. Louis College of Pharmacy with a BS in Pharmaceutical Chemistry. I have been compounding for the past 35 years.
In 1995, I recognized that many of my female clients who came into the pharmacy had increasing problems with sleep, anxiety disorders, and depression, which appeared to affect the entire family. My further investigation indicated many of those clients were on some HRT. Some took OCs or hormone therapy, and nearly 75% took antidepressants and anti-anxiety agents. I felt there was a connection and began to study those trends to see if I could intervene and impact those affected families and improve their quality of life.
I went to seminars nationwide for the next five years, listening to physicians who had published papers and books on the subject and were actually in practice. I attended their lectures wherever they gave them. In 2000, I began to counsel women and men on hormones and health issues and used Salivary Testing to determine hormone levels. I have helped over 17,000 women and 2,000 men since then and helped many to achieve balance and improve their quality of life for themselves and their families.
