What makes me special?

You would think I’d discuss my education and hands-on training with patients at the pharmacy, hospital and nursing homes. You might also think I’m special because I am passionate about Functional Medicine practitioner and I love to research. That’s not where I’m going. What makes me special is that I truly care. I’ve seen so much suffering in my life, in my work area, and within my home. I’ve experienced the pain of not knowing how to help someone in desperate need, wondering why God would allow this to happen. It’s morphed me from nerd status to compassionate care-giver. What I learn for my loved ones, I share with you. Most of what I offer is free, some of it I sell (because I do have to make a living).

My days often consist of 15 to 18 hours of work and research, day in, day out. I will stop at nothing research a particular condition and offer as many options as possible. You deserve to know all options. You may read something in one of my articles and think it’s bizarre or unproven. But just because a remedy or treatment is not the “standard of care,” here in America, doesn’t make it any less effective.

I’m a mom, and a wife. I’m insatiable when it comes to learning new ways to ease suffering. I’m often years ahead of other practitioners. When you hurt, I hurt. I don’t work for Pharma, I don’t work as a dispensing pharmacist anymore. The reality is, I work for you!

Where it all started…

I didn’t always have knowledge into natural medicine. I was a hard-core pharmacist when I graduated in 1989 from the University of Florida College of Pharmacy. I knew the next best drug and could rattle them off like the true nerd I am. But when my husband didn’t respond to typical conventional treatment for his Lyme disease (which we didn’t know he had at the time!), I started to learn about natural teas, herbs and vitamins which could relieve symptoms as well as medications, but without the harmful side effects. I immersed myself in the study of natural medicine because nothing from my pharmacy seemed to help. He suggested I write an article in the newspaper to teach others what I was learning at home, thus turning his nightmare into a blessing for others. He only asked that his privacy be respected, so for many years I just wrote my articles. Only in the last year have I been talking about his health issues openly. When love meets Lyme, beautiful things happen. Everything I’ve learned, about hundreds of disorders (Lyme-related or not) I’ve shared with you in my books, articles, blogs and posts. I know I’ve helped you, click here to read how I’ve impacted others. Drop me a note here if you want to share your own praise.

21 Things You Don’t Know About Me

I am a licensed pharmacist for 26 years and yet I make herbal medicinal teas almost every day. Combining the herbs is like a second language and I make teas based upon symptoms.

I love herbs, old fashioned pharmacies and herbal apothecaries. I have more vitamins than I do food.

I like adventure and never say no to a dare.

I love to dance. Anything. Zumba, hip hop, hula hoop, belly, tango, swing, jitterbug, rumba, you name it.

I don’t hear the word “no.” To me, hearing “no” just means I have to try some other way to make it happen. It will happen.

I do my best to turn bad times into good times, for example, at the airport, we had a 6 hour delay and I got up and danced with my dear friend Melissa in the middle of the gate boarding area (yes, in front of people). Click here to watch us.

I’m an explorer. I will turn into curious looking streets and drive, just to see what’s out there.

I will chase sun sets and rainbows if I see them.

I act like I’m 8 years old, instead of 49 running through sprinklers, running outside when it begins to snow, playing in the rain and putting my feet in mud puddles after it rains. Why not?

I dislike soda pop, it makes me burp.

My Hollywood crush is Hugh Jackman.

There are days when I think nobody likes me, for my reasons you can click here 

I’m obsessed with boots, when I lived in Florida I had more boots than flip flops and wore them in 90 degree heat. When I flew to Colorado for work, I saw a lot of little “Suzy’s” here, all in boots, and it felt like coming home!

I hate driving on 8 lane ‘superslab’ freeways, the cars go too fast and I assume that everyone is texting except me. Yes, definitely prefer the scenic (slower) route.

My hair is naturally very dark, almost black. I dye it brown. That’s the only unnatural thing I do to myself, unless you want to count make-up.

I want to go zip lining, hot-air ballooning and find more amazing hot springs, who wants to come with me?

Don’t like to watch the news, it frustrates me, and makes me cry. There’s never any good news on it, so I focus my attention on things that raise my energy.

I’m a bit of a hippie, I like hippie clothes, headbands, tie-dye and ripped up jeans.

I collect rocks from rock shops, and love the ones that I can plug in and make glow like Himalayan salt crystals. Which leads me to my next thought…

I love salts and have them from all over the world. I carry salt in my purse. I love all kinds of salt, especially smoked salt. You gotta try this!

I saved the best for last. I’m a mom. I love my children. I have three that I’ve had the privilege of loving. They are all in their twenties in college.

Random Fact: In 2009, I was selected as one of “Florida’s Most Intriguing Residents”

Random Fact: In 2013, I was selected as a “Hometown Hero” for moving “outside the traditional parameters” of my profession and informing people about safer treatments. You can read that here: http://kellyjadon.com/blog/2013/8/5/8gepa8rw0fa796iij34gbeo9gffe6d
