Cypress Pharmacy will host its monthly Seminar Saturday Dec. 14 with a discussion by Natural Health Consultant Dr. Stan Headley on “Boosting Your Immune System Against the Flu with CBD.” Seating at the popular free public seminars is limited, and available seats fill up quickly.

The seminar will be held from 1 to 2 p.m. at Cypress Pharmacy, 9451 Cypress Lake Drive in Fort Myers. Headley’s program will highlight the role of the immune system and how to prepare the body for flu season through natural immune boosters, including CBD.

“Flu season is at its peak between December and February, so now is the time to prepare in order to protect your body from illness,” said Dr. Headley, who specializes in functional and natural wellness, and leads the independent pharmacy’s dynamic wellness program. “In addition to getting a flu shot, you can also give your immune system a natural boost to help fight viruses and harmful bacteria. We’ll talk about CBD and other natural immunity-boosting strategies to get you ready for flu season.”

Attendees interested in getting their flu shot following the seminar can schedule an appointment by calling 239-481-7322. Those who get the flu shot will receive a free 30-minute one-on-one wellness consultation with Dr. Headley. The pharmacy is also offering an Immunity Booster Bundle for $50, which includes professional-grade vitamin C, probiotic and zinc to help the immune system work effectively. While many insurance providers will cover the cost of the flu vaccine, the standard influenza vaccine is $40 per person for those who do not have insurance or whose insurance does not cover the vaccination. Participants must bring their insurance card, if applicable.

As Cypress Pharmacy’s natural health consultant, Headley offers nutritional and lifestyle counseling, supplement recommendations, lab testing and educational seminars, emphasizing 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 Headley on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays, or with a pharmacist on Mondays through Saturdays. 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.

Cypress Pharmacy’s monthly Seminar Saturday sessions take place on the second Saturday of every month, providing education on a variety of wellness topics.
