What’s a Holistic Pharmacist?

“Holistic pharmacist” is largely a made-up term. Remember, we keep it real here.

Neal doesn’t want to push drugs. Quite the opposite.

Neal wants people off unnecessary medications and using nutrition instead, along with exercise, stress management, sleep—and, yes, supplements—to prevent disease as much as possible.

A holistic pharmacist is the best of both worlds: a knowledgeable, accessible professional who looks to natural options first, while at the same time applying to the supplement industry all the rigor, diligence, and integrity pharmacists are known for.

100% Original Content Created by Neal

I’ve been pretty serious so far, which is very out of character for me…I think it’s important to know that I’m a sarcastic and slightly “unprofessional” health care professional.

Most supplement and wellness content out there is written not by the “guru” but by a marketing agency or ghostwriter. As a result, all of it begins to sound the same.

Not me. I personally do all the “heavy lifting” on our content creation. I really enjoy it.

I use what I refer to as humor—ridiculous analogies and bad puns—to educate and empower consumers on wellness-related topics.  My specialty is unveiling what’s real in the natural products industry.

I’m not afraid to buck the system. I’m proud to be a voice advocating for a better supplement industry on behalf of patients AND professionals.
