Cypress Pharmacy has hired Dr. Stan Headley, who specializes in functional and natural wellness, to lead the independent pharmacy’s dynamic wellness program.

As Cypress Pharmacy’s natural health consultant, Headley will offer nutritional and lifestyle counseling, supplement recommendations, micronutrient testing and educational seminars. Headley will emphasize options for those with chronic conditions like heart disease, diabetes and high blood pressure.

Cypress Pharmacy’s wellness program offers one-on-one consultations with Dr. Headley or a pharmacist. Recommendations can include pharmaceutical grade supplements in addition to dietary and lifestyle changes. Pharmacists may also examine current medications to assure the most effective therapy for the patient’s needs and to prevent duplicate therapies.

Headley is recognized as a leading authority in functional and natural wellness, which seeks to determine how and why diseases, illnesses and pain are occurring. He attempts to identify the root cause of a health concern rather than just treating symptoms. Headley does not diagnose or treat disease but educates customers about lifestyle and behavioral changes that can promote optimal health.

“The addition of Dr. Headley to our team will be a great asset for local patients interested in identifying natural remedies and solutions for their health concerns,” said T.J. DePaola, pharmacist-in-charge and president of Cypress Pharmacy. “The conventional medicine expertise of our pharmacists combined with the natural approach of Dr. Headley gives patients a complete package of wellness solutions.”

Prior to his appointment at Cypress Pharmacy, Headley served as director of natural medicine at ApothiCare 360 in Fort Myers. He also has prior experience as a health advisor and medical officer for industry-leading supplement and homeopathic companies. Headley earned a Doctor of Medicine from Spartan Health Sciences University in St. Lucia.
