Alex Nikmanesh, Pharm.D., Licensed Pharmacist joins Dave and Bill today to talk about Are your Resolutions based on Common Sense or Common Drugs?


The flood of TV and internet ads, filled with smiles and music obscure the warning that the miracle drug that may make your life better - may also end it.


Should pharmaceuticals a first choice, or a last resort, in getting and staying healthy?


Can you be healthy without side effects?


What can we do to enhance our own health without over-medicating?


Here is a refreshing and accurate perspective on health-beyond-the pill-bottle from an objective and trained Ph.D. pharmacist, Alex Nikmanis, Pharm.D.


Alex Nikmanesh, Pharm.D. is a story of American spirit and success! At age 19 she emigrated to the US, with no knowledge of English. By age 27 she had her PhD in pharmacy and has since practiced for 14 years. Now she has taken-on an age –old viral enemy, and her own industry.


Trained and licensed in the advances of modern day medicines, Alex believes that herbal remedies often have an effect far superior to synthetic medications, assisting the body to heal rather than simply masking symptoms. Alex says the “prescription order” to health is: Nutrition First, Herbal Balance Second, and Commercial Medication Third.


She combined this philosophy with conventional medicine and successfully went to war on the common cold. She also takes on the avalanche of advertised medication with real information and common sense.


The ideas of prevention, natural ingredients and earth friendliness are not original, but the unique combination of vitamins, herbs, and minerals that boosts the immune system and curbs the spread of viruses is all hers. For most of us, health is proactive, not prescribed!
