    S03E19 - Nurturing Multiple Passions with Integrative Pharmacist Robert Kress

    S03E19 - Nurturing Multiple Passions with Integrative Pharmacist Robert Kress

    I had a blast recording this latest episode, featuring a multi-passionate pharmacist and entrepreneur, who boldly went after his dreams and never looked back.

    Robert Kress, RPh, graduated from Temple University School of Pharmacy in Philadelphia PA in 1994. After becoming disenchanted with the chemical dominant based medical system, Robert took his passion for nutrition and became board certified in clinical nutrition through the Clinical Nutrition Certification Board, as well as trained as a compounding pharmacist through the Professional Compounding Centers of America.

    During this time, Robert opened his own compounding and nutritional clinic, which blossomed into a complete longevity clinic housing other integrative practitioners. Robert became certified in Quantum Reflex Analysis, a practice of kinesiology, as well as have trained and certified in other modalities such as Reiki, auricular acupuncture, he is a Primal Health Coach, and a Registered Yoga Teacher.

    Currently, Robert consults both with patients to enhance their health through lifestyle medicine as well practitioners to help integrate, promote, and implement natural medicine into their practices. Robert teaches continuing education courses on lifestyle medicine and functional pharmacy which is highlighted by the Integrative Pharmacy Specialist Certification training he created.

    Robert believes as pharmacists, we are offered the perfect opportunity to integrate lifestyle medicine and functional pharmacy into our practices, as its core to the history of pharmacy. Patients are looking for natural solutions for their health, while practitioners are looking towards integrative care to help solve their client’s problems and enhance their practices.

    S03E18 - Overcoming Challenges of Food Allergies and Asthma as a Family with Dr. Charise Barnes

    S03E18 - Overcoming Challenges of Food Allergies and Asthma as a Family with Dr. Charise Barnes

    Today I’m super excited to bring on a pharmacist who’s passionate about advocating about what you can do as a family and community to help deal with food sensitivities and allergies. As someone who deals with this on the daily with her own family, she sees just how challenging it is.

    Dr. Charise Barnes uses her food allergy experiences with her pharmacy career and entrepreneur interests to help inform her community how to endure restrictions with food allergies, allergies, and asthma.

    Her mission is to bring awareness to food allergies, especially since her own son has been allergic to peanuts and treenuts ever since he was a toddler. There are so many nuances to adjusting to caring for your family on the day to day, let alone navigating dining out or traveling with allergies. She is passionate about educating and finding solutions by sharing her own family’s journey.

    Dr. Barnes graduated from Mercer University School of Pharmacy and is learning more each day about nutrition and food allergies.

    S03E16 - Lifted From the Scripts with Dr. Maria Glukhovsky

    S03E16 - Lifted From the Scripts with Dr. Maria Glukhovsky

    I’m delighted to bring on another wonderful and innovative pharmacist with a huge heart on the show today. We had connected on social media on sharing similar views about the role pharmacists can and should play in the community.

    Dr. Maria Glukhovsky has been a pharmacist for the past eleven years, clinical educator across many disease states and a clinical instructor at a Doctor of Pharmacy Program. She taught many diabetes and hypertension seminars to her patients over the years and has discovered everyone needs support and encouragement to succeed in their journey to better health.

    Dr. Maria is a prescription monograph reviewer and editor at a top tele-health company, Plushcare.com and a contributing author for PACS (www.panicandanxiety.org). She loves medical writing and contributing to projects that will impact others to make a difference.

    Dr. Maria is currently working on publishing a children’s book to promote mental health in children and their self-esteem. She has supported and counseled hundreds of patients on medications used to treat anxiety disorders and many other disorders, including non-pharmacologic interventions that help to aid anxiety symptoms. She prides herself in helping and supporting patients and everyone around her in any way she can and fights to help them in any way she can, whether it is for the cost of their medication or the disease state they are facing.

    Due to many stressful situations in her career, she has personally experienced burnout due to everyday job related stress factors. It has become her passion to support, counsel, and provide hope to other healthcare professionals and everyone that may be in a similar situation and promote mental health. The important message she wants everyone to know is to never be afraid or reluctant to ask for help whether it is from family, friends or your medical provider, never lose hope and just know you are one step away from overcoming this.

    Dr. Maria’s most recent endeavor is a podcast she founded. Lifted From the Scripts shares her faith to encourage, inspire, motivate and educate other pharmacists through her struggles. The podcast will discuss mental health, faith, encouragement for lifestyle modifications to control chronic disease states and to reignite a passion of how we can persevere and serve others.

    S03E15 - Clacking the Healing Code With Dr. Jenna Clack

    S03E15 - Clacking the Healing Code With Dr. Jenna Clack

    I can’t wait to release this beautiful episode into the world. It was a conversation that was seamlessly co created by two souls being open, honest and raw. I honestly felt like I was going down a rabbit hole of an epic healing journey led by Alice herself. I really hope you guys enjoy this one!

    From the compounding lab to the consultation office, Dr. Jenna W. Clack prides herself on finding new and innovative ways to naturally help the human body achieve neurohormonal homeostasis. Through an advanced understanding of epigenetics, hormonal pathways, methylation, detoxification, and metabolic & functional medicine, Jenna’s approach has been utilized by patients and practitioners alike.

    Jenna’s pharmacy background began over a decade ago, at age 18, working at an independent compounding pharmacy in the Texas hill country. From there, she gained her Doctorate of Pharmacy from The University the Incarnate Word (San Antonio, TX), and soon after completed her advanced fellowship in Anti-Aging, Metabolic & Functional Medicine.

    Currently, Jenna and her family of five reside in southern Costa Rica, where they own/operate a Space creation company centered around holistic healing and mental wellness. Here, Jenna has been able to apply her advanced wellness education to the realms of plant medicine, alternative treatments, and a myriad of other holistic therapies.

    Whether it's balancing hormones or clearing mental blocks, Jenna brings a unique and proven methodology to every situation through epigenetics and personalized consultations. Rather than fitting patients into pre-destined medical protocol, she treats patients accordingly; as individuals. Using practical scientific tools, deep contextual intelligence and empathetic application at the soul level, Dr. Clack serves synergistically in every interaction entertained.

    You may connect with Jenna (aka JDubya) via the following platforms and offerings:

    S03E14 - Taking Control of Your Own Health with Dr. Marilena Grittani

    S03E14 - Taking Control of Your Own Health with Dr. Marilena Grittani

    Today I had the pleasure of hanging out virtually with a person who blew me away with both her passion and wealth of knowledge and experience in the healthcare field. Dr. Marilena Grittani has been a Clinical Pharmacist for over 26 years, practiced in several hospitals and pharmacies throughout 5 states of the US.

    But that’s not the thing that makes her the most impressive. How she got her credentials required a lot of work and dedication, as she moved from a different continent and built both a career and a family in a foreign country.

    It’s no wonder that her focus now is to empower each female that loves and cares about her family, to make the best-educated medical decisions to improve her family's health. She has built an entire community around her vision and passion.

    Dr. Marilena’s “Legal Drug Dealer” podcast launched earlier this year originally focused on educating the listener about what pharmacists do but quickly evolved to a medical platform for professional providers that want to educate around their areas of expertise and non-traditional medical ways to treat patients.

    Since then, the podcast has exposed topics like Children’s medications, Menopause and its treatment with Bioidenticals, How to confront fear about medical issues, How to get your medication approved by your insurance, and What good doctors want all patients to know, among others.

    Dr. Marilena’s most recent endeavor was a huge undertaking into a virtual conference called “Taking Control Of My Own Health,” an educational platform led by fellow professional medical experts. This summit allows for the generous sharing of information and wisdom with those that need and want it.
