I am a pharmacist, author, certified fitness instructor and health enthusiast who enjoys sharing my passion with others. I graduated with honors from the Philadelphia College of Pharmacy and Science in 1992. Since that time I've been practicing holistic pharmacy in the Niagara region of Ontario. My philosophy of practice is to integrate conventional and complementary therapies to optimize health and prevent disease.I've won several national pharmacy awards for providing excellence in patient care, and have delivered hundreds of lectures to medical professionals and the public. I enjoy being interviewed on radio and TV talk shows throughout North America and abroad on health matters. I have authored 16 books and booklets, including Saving Women’s Hearts, The Canadian Encyclopedia of Natural Medicine, and The Glycemic Index Made Simple.
