REMEDY HOLISTIC PHARMACY

_________________________

FEMALE OWNED + OPERATED

 

 


 

I founded Remedy out of a desire to re-think medication use + the pharmacy experience overall. I wanted to create a community space where people can get answers about their medications, where natural approaches are welcomed (even encouraged!), + where people are treated with respect + compassion.

In the past, pharmacies were hubs of the community - they were a place to see your neighbors, a place to pick up your medicine, + a place you actually enjoyed going. Your pharmacist knew you + was available to talk with you. Sadly, the role of the community pharmacy has changed today, but I am on a mission to create a New (Old) Kind of Pharmacy. We all deserve better!

I set out to create a space where we could incorporate all the tools we are fortunate to have available today, from Western to Eastern medicine, from pharmacogenomic testing to compounded medications. My goal is to make getting your medications a more enjoyable experience + to inform you about the options you have - moving medicine away from a one-size-fits-all assembly line to a truly personalized experience. I am also passionate about sustainability + conscious consumerism, which is why you will find biodegradable prescription vials, eco-friendly practices + stocked brands that have the same values.

I hope to have the opportunity to be your pharmacist soon! You know where to find me.
