About Us

 

Our compounding pharmacy utilizes specialized technique, equipment and expertise to customize remedies for the individual for a myriad of disease states. We advocate blending the best of Eastern and Western medicine & nutrition to PREVENT disease and deficiencies, while also being uniquely qualified to formulate treatments for a wide range of chronic and acute conditions. From the common cold to cancer, we are your go-to when you need a creative, innovative, “outside the box” solution!

We have invested in partnerships that will impact our community directly, as well as programs that will bear fruit in areas where research and training is lacking and underfunded. One such program, which we became a sponsor of in 2014, is the Naturopathic Education & Research Consortium (NERC), whose purpose is to advance the field of naturopathic medicine through the funding of residency programs in various medical specialties.

NorthWest Remedies Cherry, Pharmacist

Cherry, Technician

Cherry has been compounding since 1995. After graduating from pharmacy tech school in San Diego, CA. She began her career working for University Compounding Pharmacy in San Diego for 6 years. In January 2002 she accepted a job offer from Randy Mentzer, R.Ph. CCN and has been our steady hand ever since.

In her “spare” time, Cherry loves smothering her 2 children, reading books and experimenting with different recipes for cookies and other fine confections. As best as we can figure, Cherry lives to test the will of her co-workers -- tempting them with her ridiculously good creations like gluten-free banana bread and Nutella-filled chocolate chip cookies. Of course we all work in a nutrition center, so it’s SUPER rare for anyone to give in… Or at least admit to it!
