Today we’d like to introduce you to Candace Jeffries.
Hi Candace, we’d love for you to start by introducing yourself.
I have worked in a pharmacy since I was 16 years old. I got my Doctorate of Pharmacy at KU in 2001. I have always loved helping people. In 2018, my son was struggling with depression. We put him on anti-depressants that made him suicidal. That launched me into the world of functional medicine and finding ways to help him without taking medications. At the same time, my hormones were JACKED UP! No one had ever really told me about perimenopause. As I dove into functional medicine for me and my family and those around me, I realized that I was helping a lot more people than I ever did by counseling them on medications. Remedy Wellness was born out of truly desiring to see people healthy and well in all areas of their lives…physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual. I love people, and I love what I do!!
Alright, so let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?
First of all, the conventional medical world doesn’t always tolerate things they weren’t taught in medical school. And then there’s the whole part about business…I didn’t learn how to run a business in pharmacy school. I have learned and tweaked things all along the way. My biggest struggle is marketing. Thankfully, most of my clients are referrals.
Thanks – so what else should our readers know about Remedy Wellness?
I specialize in gut health and women’s health and autoimmune disease. I do food sensitivity testing, microbiome testing, hormone testing, and genetic testing. I look at the whole person and see what puzzle pieces are affecting other puzzle pieces. I geek out on lab work, looking at it from a functional medicine perspective. I help people pinpoint lifestyle choices they’re making that is causing them to feel YUCK! I’m proud of the brand that I’ve created because I am truly helping people get well and stay well. I’m no longer just covering up symptoms with medications. Most of my clients come through referrals from past clients. That speaks for itself!
Alright, so to wrap up, is there anything else you’d like to share with us?
People want to feel fabulous, have great bowel movements and great sex, be skinny and do all that they dream of, but oftentimes, their daily choices make them feel terrible and stop all of this greatness from happening. I’m here to educate, inspire, and empower people to take control of their health and wellness!
